    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
