    9.1 he strikes first ball, Akmal is cleaned up, no footwork at all from Akmal, back of a length ball, the batsman is stuck on the crease and the ball sneaks between bat and pad to crash into middle and off stumps 41/2
    6.5 Kulasekara finally gets rid of Malik, who has looked completely out of touch here, this was just short of a length, pitching on off and holding it's line, Malik was look for the inward movement, the ball takes the off bail 29/1
    16.3 an awful shot to get out, Afridi had looked in good touch till then, short and wide, Afridi has to reach across as he looks to dab it towards slip, can only feather it through to the keeper, Rameez Raja points out on TV that we would have praised it as a cheeky shot if he had pulled it off 73/4
    10.6 he's a goner this time, length ball outside off, moving away from Yousuf, who flirts with it and gets a nick to the keeper, superb spell of bowling from Kulasekara 48/3
    18.3 Younis Khan joins the procession, Sri Lanka are well on top here, a short and wide delivery gets the wicket again, Younis cuts it straight to third man 78/5
    25.5 another soft dismissal, Misbah's gone this time just as Pakistan seemed to be re-building, straighter one does the trick, pitched on a length just outside leg, Misbah looked to slip it to the leg side, gets a leading edge which lobs back to the bowler 95/6
    36.4 arm ball from Jayasuriya does the job, Fawad is gone, he was on the front foot trying to push that to the off side, nicks it to the keeper, and that could well be the end of Pakistan's chances 134/7
    37.2 Murali strikes with the second ball of this spell, pitching on middle and off and turning in, Razzaq was caught on the back foot looking to turn the ball towards the leg side, no doubt about that one 134/8

    44.4 that's the end of that, Malinga gets the perfect yorker on middle and leg, Gul misses, the stumps are shattered, Sri Lanka are 1-0 up in this series 196/10
    44.3 Aamer jabs a fullish delivery to backward point and is run out, Jayawardene has done the job for Sri Lanka, the bowlers were struggling to break the partnership, but Jayawardene throws down the stumps at the bowler's end with a direct hit, Aamer forgets to drag his bat into the crease and that error means he doesn't make his ground, he has to go 196/9
