    26.6 and the master strikes! flat delivery, pitched close to the off stump line and turning away, perfect line and length, Farhat is sucked forward and the ball turns away just enough to kiss the outside edge, Jayawardene at first slip dives across to his left and takes a good catch 59/1
    30.6 Murali strikes again! another classic off-spinner's dismissal! tossed up and turning in, Younis Khan is foxed by the flight and the turn, goes back to cut but fails to connect and the ball crashes into the furniture, that was too close to cut and Khan pays dearly for the poor choice of shot 71/2
    81.2 got'm! good length delivery, this one jagged back in from outside the off stump and Iqbal gets hit on the pad, loud appeal and up goes the finger, Maharoof with the breakthrough! 186/3
    109.5 gone! quicker delivery, ball grips the surface and turns in sharply, Inzi pushes forward to defend, ball clips the pad, hits the face of the bat and goes straight to Dilshan at silly point. Murali gets one more to 267/4
