    1 bowled him, through the gate, wanted to drive it, comes into him and goes through the gate 4/1
    5.4 bowled him, Dilshan's gone, bowled, it was pitched right up to the bat and he went for the drive, missed a rather straighter one, hits timber 37/2
    16.1 on the middle stump and that has been slogged over mid-wicket for a biggie, did not quite connect it enough to carry it over, the fielder did well at the fence to stop it from getting to the fence, the batsman in the meantime went for the third run, by which time the fielder had recovered well, throws it down to the striker's end, easily collected and stumps are broken, that is out by quite a distance! 116/5
    13.2 bowled him, he was going for that scoop over fine-leg yet again, missed it this time and the castle is disturbed, in fact only one bail went down but that will do. Need to add, the second bail trickled down too with time! 86/3
    15.1 gone, caught at short cover and Mahmudullah's back in the hut. That was on the off stump and he went for a drive through covers, got it in the air and the fielder dived in front of him to take it well, inches above the ground 103/4

    16.3 and he is now out, attempted the same shot, this time it was a full toss and that did not allow him to get it over the short fine-leg fielder, who jumps up to hold a quick, but straight-foward chance 120/6

    3.3 goes down the track and wants to give it a full blast, Farhat misses it this time, and the middle stump is pegged back, Prasad particularly enjoys the wicket and greets it with a few choice words too! 32/1
    5.2 gone, lbw, was trying to sweep it away and hits the pads, the ball was hitting on the middle stump line and the batsman had no doubt that it was hitting the top of middle, gone for six 37/2
    6.4 round the stumps, pushed to the off side, the batsman wanted to go for it, the non-striker was dubious about it went for it in the end, the fielder in the covers runs in quickly and dives and throws in one action, well collected by the keeper, breaks the stump down, that is the end of their captain's stay 39/4
    6.1 goes down the track and chips it over the in-field but there is a long-off in place and it's hit straight to him, caught easily and trouble for the batting side 38/3

    11.1 gone, bowled 'em! Walks across to the off stump, wanted to flick it over fine-leg, the bowler bowled it on that leg stump line, Maharoof misses and it clips the leg stump, half the side is back now and the pressure is on the Rudras 67/5
    13.4 and this one will not help, it was punched straight to the point fielder, in fact he opened the face of the bat, and hit it as far as the point fielder, unfortuantely for him, it went straight and caught rather easily. 86/6
