    0.3 first blood to Aamer and Pakistan get rid of the top scorer from the previous game, Aamer lands it on a good length outside off and gets it to come in with the angle, the ball gets high on Tharanga who pokes his bat out and gives Umar Akmal catching practice at second slip 0/1
    3.4 nice comeback by Rana and I don't think Jayasuriya will ever want to see a replay of that, the slower ball completely foxes him, he tries to work it to the on side but gets a tame leading edge which pops up to Misbah at second slip, one of the easiest catches you'll see and Naved in chuffed 19/2
    12.3 a poor shot really costs Jayawardene, Aamer angles it wide across the right-hander and Jayawardene stays at the crease and swishes at it, gets a thin edge to the keeper, not the best delivery really so it was Jayawardene who brought it on himself 58/4
    9.5 another tame dismissal! Rana Naved's slower deliveries are foxing the best of the best in this line-up, Sangakkara tries to work it to the on side on the walk but the leading edge balloons to Afridi at extra cover 54/3
    12.6 five down and counting, Aamer pitches it up wide outside off and angles it really wide across the right-hander, Kapugedera goes for a wild cover drive and gets a thick outside edge to Misbah at first slip, he falls to his left and takes it easily 59/5
    not out
    14.6 Aamer takes four! Another poor shot, Aamer bowls it slightly short of a length on middle and off and gets it to move away from the right-hander, Mathews cannot resist a slash and Kamran snaps a thick edge 69/6
    15.5 the Sri Lankans have a plane to catch in roughly 15 minutes, that explains the procession of wickets, Rana Naved pitches it up outside off and gets it to move away, Kulasekara follows it to drive, doesn't move his feet and gets an edge, Misbah takes a very neat low catch at slip 70/7
    17.5 'castled and lagered'.... Rana Naved gets the ball to nip back in and catches Prasad at the crease, he gets a thick inside edge and the ball crashes onto middle and leg 74/8
    32.5 was he bowled or stumped? Afridi fires it full and quick on seeing the batsman advance down the track, he misses it completely and the bails were off, the umpire Steve Davis checks with the third umpire if he was bowled or stumped, the ball missed the stumps at first, rebounded off Kamran's gloves and knocked the bails off 145/9
    34.2 Misbah rounds off a good day at the slips with a sharp catch, Mendis reaches out to drive and gets a thick outside edge, travels quickly and Misbah takes it easily at first slip 147/10
