    103.4 got him! no double century for Hafeez, that was a flighted and full delivery from Herath, Hafeez went for the sweep after coming down the track but couldn't get bat on it, the ball knocks back leg stump, and a mammoth partnership comes to an end, Hafeez gone for 196, stand was worth 287, that was a bold shot to attempt with a double-century in sight 365/2
    21.3 Taufeeq goes, a big strike for Sri Lanka, short and wide and he'd dispatched those deliveries for boundaries earlier in the innings, perhaps it didn't bounce as much as he would have liked, a thin edge and Prasanna, standing up to the stumps, makes no mistake, a sharp catch that 78/1
    133.4 Azhar's vigil is over, Randiv gets his first wicket of the innings, Azhar looks for the reverse-sweep but doesn't get hold of it properly, hit off the middle but the ball loops to Kulasekara at point, and Azhar is gone for 157, matching his previous highest score 486/4
    123.3 Younis falls trying the sweep, a borderline call that, it was an arm ball that Younis looked to work towards square leg, he had taken a huge stride forward, he misses the ball and is struck just below the knee roll around off stump, might have been just outside, the umpire was convinced, Younis wasn't too happy with that, Herath gets reward for his tireless efforts 435/3

    135.5 a direct hit from Dilshan, and that is going to be a tough call for the third umpire, Shafiq might just be out here as his bat looks to be on the crease and not beyond it, the third ump takes his time, and after viewing it from several angles sends Shafiq on his way. It all started with Misbah waiting on the backfoot for the ball from Randiv to turn into his pads, then he tucked it towards square leg and set off for a run, Dilshan swooped on the ball and with one stump to aim at, he threw down the stumps 491/5
    142.2 another wicket for Herath, tossed up by him, Adnan looks to drive through cover, but ends up looping it towards short cover, simple catch 519/6

    3.6 the first breakthrough for Pakistan!they needed an early wicket, Paranavitana has gone for a duck, back of a length ball comes in a touch, Paranavitana looks to defendm gets a thick inside-edge on to his thigh pad, the ball then deflects towards short leg, who seizes it and that's the end of Paranavitana 11/1
    69.6 a wicket, after 66 overs, Dilshan given right away by umpire Taufel, Junaid angling it in from round the stumps, on a good length, some inward movement in the air as well as Dilshan pushed forward to defend, did not seem to be an inside edge, the ball brushed the flap of the back pad, just in front of off 236/2
    120.2 GONE! Sangakkara misses another double-century, oh dear, and that is not a stroke he will want to see again, it was a harmless delivery, he shuffles down the track and whips it to square leg, easy catch there, soft end to the innings, he was looking to whack that over mid-on but didn't get to the pitch of the ball, note to SL dressing room: Stay clear of Sanga for a while, he's going to be furious with himself 378/7
    73.5 Mahela gets a duck on the SSC pitch, padding up to one that nipped back in from short of a length, looked a shade high though, hitting him above the back pad, but like Taufeeq had done in the first innings in Galle, Mahela did not help his case by not offering a stroke 250/3
    78.5 another duck, two centuries and three ducks now, tossed up on middle, good length, Thilan goes back, and the ball hurries in to strike him in front of leg, given after a long appeal by umpire Gould 259/4
    85.4 Rehman strikes with the new ball, angles it in, Randiv playing forward for the turn, struck in front of middle and off, plumb 278/5
    117.3 you don't need the bouncer though as he pitches it back of a length outside off, Mathews played down the wrong line and feathers it through to the keeper, a wicket at last for Pakistan today 370/6
    122.6 and another wicket for Pakistan, the third for Rehman, not sure what Prasanna was trying to do there, it was a short of length ball spinning away outside off, he just left his bat hanging there and the ball takes the edge through to the keeper 385/9
    121.2 five for Junaid, and another duck in this lopsided innings, that was a yorker that sneaked under Kulasekara's bat and crashed into the middle and leg stumps, great work from the young Pakistan fast bowler, there hasn't been much in the track to support him, actually there was an inside-edge on that, Junaid holds the ball aloft to signal his five-for 379/8

    124.4 and that is the end of Sri Lanka's innings, they finish on 391 as the No. 11 plays a shot worthy of a No. 11, it was well outside off but Pradeep swipes at it, gets a top-edge which sends the ball swirling towards mid-on, went high up but Ajmal holds on to it, screams of delight from the Pakistan fielders as they get a chance to rest up in the dressing room 391/10
