    10.2 so what does Para do? He gives Pakistan a second chance, a tougher one, and Younis Khan shows how it's done at second slip, not a drive from Para, he came forward and looked to defend one straightening outside off stump, the ball flew low to YK's right, he reacted sharply and swallowed it with both hands 44/1
    37.2 Chandimal gives it away just before tea, he had hit a similar delivery for four over extra cover the previous over, he charges out again, but can only get it as far as mid off, who tumbles forward to take a sharp low catch 132/2

    47.4 Mahela is walking, after making 11 off 43, he tries a scoop from leg stump to a flat offspinner, but ends up hitting it tamely in the air for short fine to come around to his right and settle under it 150/3
    55.1 deceived by the doosra, he's had a problem with this delivery throughout the series, lands full on middle and off and Samaraweere plays for the turn into him, it goes the other way and crashes into the stumps, this spices things up 178/4
