    17.4 gone! Fullish again outside off stump, again Tharanga tries that booming drive but gets a thick outside edge which Akmal gladly snaps up, Razzaq strikes after going for runs 108/2
    9.1 and he gets the man they wanted! A relatively harmless ball, straight on the stumps, Jayasuriya has an ugly swipe across the line and loses his composure and stumps, vital strike from Iftikhar, who lets forth a nice verbal volley at Jayasuriya as he passes him, much fun! 63/1
    24.1 and he gets the wicket! Tossed up outside off stump, Jayawardene again sweeps that but gets a top-edge which Farhat snaps up moving back and to his left at leg gully, crucial breakthrough for Pakistan, Sri Lanka's captain departs for 31 141/3

    43.1 Gone... Atapattu is hit on the pads as he tries to work to on side and sets off for a run but Maharoof sends him back. But Atapattu fails to make it time to beat the throw from Hafeez who swooped in from point 225/6

    45.6 and it gets even better! straight and on the stumps, Maharoof makes room in an effort to go over extra-cover but miserably fails to make contact and the ball craches into the woodwork 236/7
    49.2 wicket to wicket delivery, this time Vaas slogs across the line and the stumps are rearranged 253/10
    46.6 tossed up and turning in, Murali goes for the sweep and gets trapped plumb in front 239/8
    47.2 golden duck! harmless off-cutter, Malinga ends up playing inside the line and the off stump is pegged back - Sri Lanka nine down 240/9

    4.6 but he's gone this time! A lovely length ball outside off, Hafeez goes forward and opens the face, half-cock, and gets a thin edge right into Sangakkara's gloves, the ploy to stand upto the stumps works 39/1
    19.1 and it works! Holy cow, that was so predictable! Tossed up outside off stump, Farhat gives the charge, doesnt get under it and lofts that high and down to Fernando at long-off, what a stupid shot and he's handed the game back to Sri Lanka 104/3
    12.1 and he strikes first ball, can you believe it! Lands this outside off stump, a fraction short of a good length, a little seam movement there, forces Younis to go for a drive and nibble through to Sangakarra! Maharoof's magic continues, second wicket down for Pakistan 71/2
    34.1 Oh what chaos! Misfield results in a run out. Youhana tickles a shortish delivery behind square-leg. They run two and Fernando, coming in from long-leg, fails to pick the ball and over runs a bit! Yousuf sees the chance to steal a extra run, sets off but Shoaib sends him back. It was too late by then. What a way to go. This could really set the cat among the pigeons. 161/5
    22.4 Afridi's madness! Tossed up, comes down the track, there we have the one leg going up, doesnt pick the ball at all, and ends up smashing that high and down to long-off for a simple catch to Tharanga, why was Afridi sent up to face the spinners on this track? 114/4

    42.1 He gets it but the credit goes to Maharoof who ran some twenty yards to his left from deep midwicket to hold on to a very good catch. It was a short delivery and Akmal pulled it from outside the off stump and it looked like maximum when he connected. But a damn good catch at the end once again threatens to tilt the scales back on this roller coaster of a match. 201/6
