    2.2 Manzoor is gone, nicks it through to the keeper, the previous delivery had come into the batsman, and he was looking to cover for that movement again, to a delivery that pitched just outside off, but the ball held it's line and a thin outside edge gives Sri Lanka the early breakthrough 4/1
    14.6 Alam's big early move toward the offstump costs him, he is way across to a ball that pitched on middle stump and held it's line, he misses as he tries to defend, and is rapped in front, Simon Taufel sends Alam on his way, no doubt about that one 51/5
    3.1 big blow for Pakistan, Younis Khan chops it on to his stumps, it was a short ball and the angle was taking it across the batsman, who tries to cut it but gets a bottom edge, one bounce and it rattles the stumps, a duck for Younis 6/2
    4.4 Kulasekara strikes, Yousuf is gone, Pakistan in disarray here, pitched up by the bowler outside off, Yousuf bends his knee as he drives it gracefully, but straight to the fielder at point, Rangana Herath, who takes a good, low catch 17/3
    6.4 Kulasekara is on fire here, he gets rid of Misbah with a ripper of a delivery, Kulasekara keeps probing away around that offstump, this time the ball swerves sharply in towards the batsman, Misbah doesn't adjust for the movement as he defends off the front foot, an inside-edge results, and Dilshan dives to his left to pouch it 19/4

    18.2 a nothing delivery from Thushara gets him a wicket, it was a back of a length and wide outside off, Akmal moved across his stumps a long way reducing the room for the cut, gets a thin top edge, Dilshan gets another catch, poor batting that 67/6
    27.4 Rauf long scoreless vigil ends, he played down the wrong line there, back of a length ball, pitching outside off, hits Rauf just below the knee roll in front of middle, that would have crashed into legstump, Kulasekara's day continues to get better 74/7
    31.4 a full toss gives Mendis his first wicket of the day, very soft dismissal that, Gul wanted to loft that delivery from off and middle over cover, but can't clear the man 80/8
    35.5 quicker delivery from Mendis, Aamer is hit on the pads in front of legstump and umpire Harper rules that lbw, replays show the ball pitched outside leg though 90/9
    35.6 Two-in-two for Mendis, another lbw, Ajmal gets a golden duck, a full toss strikes Ajmal low in front of middle and leg, the umpire has no hesitation in ruling that one out 90/10
