    0.1 bowled'im, first ball, swinging in towards middle and off and Kamran has a massive swing at it, misses it completely and the stumps take a beating! The crowd erupts, just the start they wanted 0/1
    7.5 gone! Malinga makes up for lapse earlier in the innings, in the slot outside off, makes room and swings hard in an attempt to clear long-off, gets more elevation than distance and it lands safely in the palms of Malinga in the deep, big blow, an entertaining innings comes to an end 59/3
    3.5 Malik was dancing around the crease even before Malinga hurled it down, shuffled across and then moved away, Malinga bowled it short on the off and Malik, trying to pull it past midwicket, was caught off-guard as it kept a little low, missed it and it went straight onto the stumps, two down! 35/2
    16.2 gone this time, the low full toss does the trick. Afridi got into a good position to execute his attempt to clear long-off but didn't time it all too well, straight to Kulasekara who takes it comfortably 139/5
    14.6 gone! An unusual dismissal, low full toss outside off, Akmal attempts the scoop but is a little too early into the shot, gets a top edge and Sanga just has to run back a couple of steps to take a simple catch 125/4

    3.5 he's given him! Cut back in just outside leg stump towards middle and off, Udawatte was too late in trying to run it down behind point, was struck high on the pads but the umpire was convinced that was out, it pitched outside leg so that must take the lbw out of contention immediately 39/1
    4.1 Jayasuriya goes! Banged in short outside off, goes for the pull but doesn't connect it well, probably came on to him really quickly, got the top edge and Umar Akmal running to his right from fine leg completed a well-judged catch, it almost popped out but he got his fingers around it the second time round. 39/2
    8.4 leading edge and Razzaq takes it comfortable, angled in, landed on a good length on middle and leg, Jayawardene tried to clip it over midwicket but was a little early into the shot and Razza just had to move a few steps to his right at cover to cup that one 71/3
    13.2 big blow! Tossed up outside off, much slower through the air, Sanga's eyes light up, goes for big slog-sweep over midwicket, gets an inside edge straight onto the stumps 100/4
    14.3 he's holed out! Quicker through the air, bowled full on middle, Kapugedara is tempted to deposit that into the stands, a desperate heave that, gets the top edge and Naved running in from deep midwicket judges it to perfection, tumbles to ensure he's held it firmly and then celebrates 106/5
    15.4 run-out, low full toss on middle, driven straight to Afridi at midwicket who fires in an accurate throw to the non-striker's end, scores a direct-hit and Angelo is short, Pakistan are on top, Sri Lanka are sliding 115/6
    15.5 It's only a matter of time now, they've lost two in two. Tossed it up outside off, Kandamby chases it, tries to slice it over point but is unable to do so as Nazir times his jump well to pluck it 115/7
    16.5 timber! The offcutter bowled slow, Kulasekara has a wild swing at it, is complete done in by the change in pace, misses and the ball crashes into middle and leg 117/8
    17.3 Murali falls, tossed up on the off stump, makes room and lofts it straight to Umar Akmal positioned perfectly at long-on, takes it easily, Ajmal gets his third 119/9
    18.1 bowled on a good length on leg stump, tries to slog it towards midwicket, misses it completely and hears the death rattle! 120/10
