    60.5 gone! Sri Lanka have struck! Manzoor is absolutely distraught as he pokes at a full delivery outside off that leaves him at the last moment, it produces the outside edge and Jayawardene does the rest, taking a good low catch at first slip 203/3
    11.2 gone! Shot away from a good length just outside off, moved away just as he prodded at it from the crease, got a thin edge straight through to Dilshan 34/1
    11.5 He's dragged it on! Short outside off, good bounce, gets into good position to chop that through point, got the inside edge and it clipped the off stump 36/2
    63.3 run out, pushes it wide of mid-off to get a quick single and reaches his 7000th run, there's an overthrow towards deep square leg but there's plenty of hesitation out in the middle for the second run, Misbah is already halfway down the pitch and Yousuf has covered too much ground at the other end to make it back for the second run in time, an accurate throw to the keeper and Dilshan clips the bails to find him miles short 210/4
    84.2 Misbah goes! Sri Lanka have the edge now! Full outside off, Misbah leans into the drive, it moves back in sharply to catch a faint inside edge through to Dilshan who dives to his left to complete a sharp catch. 285/6
    83.5 Plumb! Darted back in from the off stump and Malik was rooted to the crease, kept a little low, he played down the wrong line and was caught right in front of middle 285/5
    87.2 Timber! Short outside off, the pull was on, Akmal went for it, trying to strike it in the direction of midwicket, got an inside edge straight into off stump, absolutely no resistance this morning from Pakistan 289/9
    84.6 here we go again! A hint of inward movement, but its a little too wide, Gul drives at it lethargically from the crease with little foot movement, gets the inside edge straight onto the stumps 287/7
    86.3 trapped in front! An outrageous shot from the batsman, darted back in from a good length outside off, Kaneria had a wild swing at it, hoping to clear midwicket, missed and was rapped in front of middle. Taufel had no doubt about that one, Sri Lanka have struck early 289/8

    0.1 gone first ball! Warnapura has been cleaned up. Full on the off stump, a hint of inward movement, Warnapura steps out to drive that across the line through midwicket, audacious shot first up, he misses and the stumps are pegged back 0/1
    5.2 timber! Done in by the swing. Seamed in from well outside off, he misread the line as it landed on a good length on the off stump and tried to leave it, only to find his furniture pegged back 23/2
    17.6 he's given him! A flattish delivery, appeared to land just marginally outside leg stump and spun in to strike him in front as he went for the sweep, the fielders went up and the umpire, after much thought, raised his finger 63/3
    52.1 done in by the flipper! Quick on middle and Mahela was clueless, zipped through from a good length and beat him through the gate to crash into the stumps 174/7
    23.3 bowled'im! The conventional offspinner, but turned in prodigiously, taking Samaraweera by surprise, short on the off stump and ripped back in, he got onto the back foot totally unprepared to handle the turn and was bowled through the gate. In fact, it clipped the top of the pads on its way to the stumps. Bowled at 88 kmph. 82/4
    44.5 gone! Was testing his patience there, Mathews is sucked into prodding that one, much fuller than the previous one, gets forward to defend, it spins away to take the outside edge and Misbah cups it comfortably at slip 153/5
    50.6 that looked out! Fired in full on quick on middle and off, tried to swing it through square, more of a half-sweep, it didn't spin and caught him right in front. Taufel had no hesitation. 171/6
    68.3 edged and gone! Kaneria takes five. Short and wide, goes for the cut, thick edge straight to the keeper 233/10
    55.2 edged and gone! Appeared to be a doosra, but it went on straight, played for the turn, inside the line, got a thick edge straight to Misbah at slip 181/8
    60.5 caught in front! Bowled with a flat trajectory, landed on a good length on the off and spun in to rap Herath in front of middle and leg as he tried to play down the wrong line, looking to defend it on the off side 204/9

    8.5 bowled'im! Gone at the stroke of stumps! Drifted in towards off from round the wicket, Manzoor leaned forward to defend it towards silly point, it appeared to go straight on, got an inside edge onto his pads and then onto the stumps 16/1
    13.1 gone! Leapt off the pitch after landing short on the off stump, Alam didn't look to pull it, instead he attempted to turn it wristily off the back foot in front of midwicket, it came onto him quickly, caught the top-edge and lobbed up straight to the bowler who took it running a couple of yards to his right 22/2
    24.2 darted back in from a good length outside off, that's his trademark delivery, came forward to push it into the leg side, was beaten by the movement and was struck in line but fairly high on the pads, he was disappointed when Gould raised his finger 54/3
    31.3 Herath had been troubling him for quite some time and he gets him this time! Flighted on middle and it spun away sharply, Yousuf is half-forward and looks to defend with a slightly open face, it turns away to take a thin edge and Sangakkara makes no mistake, big wicket! 67/4
    71.5 edged and gone! Mathews gives them the breakthrough. Far quicker, and leapt off the pitch, Misbah had already given him the charge and tried to upper-cut it as it went away from him but a bit of extra bounce, got a thin edge straight to Sangakkara 186/5
    110.5 Malik's fine innings comes to an end! Flighted, comes down the track and tries to smash it inside out in the direction of wide long-off, does not connect it as well as he would have liked and fails to get the desired elevation, Suranga Lakmal, the substitute fielder for Kulasekara, runs in from long-off, dives forward and plucks it inches from the ground to complete a stunning catch 371/7
    98.5 edged and gone! Sri Lanka finally get the breakthrough. Length delivery just outside off and Akmal is sucked into the drive, not much movement there but it's enough to produce the outside edge and Mahela dives to his right at a widish slip to cup that superbly 319/6
    116.4 nope, it's tossed up this time, pitched up on middle and leg, goes for the slog-sweep once again, its spins away, takes the top edge and Vaas, running in from long leg, completes an excellent tumbling catch 399/8
    118.5 Herath picks five, flighted on middle, is tempted and attempts to smash him out of the ground, miscues it completely and it lands safely in the palms of Thushara at long-on 405/9

    44.4 they've broken through! A wicket against the run of play with the way these two were going, bowled it slightly flatter and straight onto the pads, Paranavitana got forward and tried to work it square but did so a little uppishly and Alam was alert at short leg to snap a sharp one 139/2
    25.2 he's given him! Gould raises his finger immediately after Warnapura got front and across and tried to turn it fine, it clipped his pads and went through to Malik at leg slip. There didn't appear to be any contact with the bat there, the appeal was spontaneous and the umpire answered in the affirmative. Tough call. Clipped the back of the pads, and Malik took it really low down. 83/1

    50.1 edged and gone! Tossed it up outside off and Mahela was drawn forward to defend, it turned away to produce a thick outside edge which crashed into Akmal''s gloves, popped out only for him to dive to his right and take it on the second attempt 155/3
    88.3 the doosra does the trick! Slower through the air, it landed just a little short outside off and moved away after pitching, keeping a little low, Samaraweera got forward to defend, played inside the line and got a thin edge through to Akmal 277/4
