    11.4 that's a loose shot. Error in judgement from Shahzad as he tries to reverse sweep a length ball from a middle and leg line. Always minimal chance of making contact from there. Rapped on the pad and pretty plumb 57/1
    24.4 another legbreak, he's playing a sweep, right across the line and against the turn, and is struck in front of middle. Umpire Brathwaite shuts down the appeal. But Sri Lanka are reviewing this. UltraEdge says no bat involved. So as long as this good length ball pitches in line with the stumps, Ihsanullah should be out. Yep. Three reds and Akila has another wicket 107/2
    41.1 chipped straight over and Thisara Perera snaffles it at long-on. Back of a length, backs away and just helps it over. Thisara moves to his left and grabs it reverse-cupped 190/4
    25.6 huge appeal for lbw and umpire Ahsan Raza gives it out. Two wickets in two overs for Sri Lanka and both the result of batsmen being bamboozled by spin. Here Asghar is just a touch slow to react to a slider that pins him in front of middle before he's ready to play a shot. Worse, that shot is a flick, with the bat coming around his front pad, which always takes too much time 110/3
    44.2 leg stump goes cartwheeling. Swipes with no room for a pull, goes right past the bottom of the bat and from close to the back thigh to smash into the stumps 203/5
    46.3 chips this harmlessly straight over. Has to fetch it from outside off and swipes without getting into any decent position. Thisara runs to his left at long-on and snaffls it reverse-cupped. Just sticks in his right hand, so a one-handed grab essentially 222/6
    47.5 full, dipping outside off, pitches just in the right area to not allow him to effectively drill it away, off the inside edge onto the stumps 227/7
    49.1 tame! Looks for a yorker and bowls a low full toss outside off that's whipped straight to square leg where Akila snaffles a smart low catch 242/8
    49.4 through the legs. An inch-perfect yorker, he opens u his stance looking to go over the leg side. But the ball dips considerably, skips under the bat, brushes the pad and crashes into the stumps 249/9

    49.6 five for Thisara. Goes for a reverse glide but this is another yorker and it gets under the bat and smashes into the stumps 249/10

    0.2 shout for leg before, given. Impact seemed outside off but Kusal's walking off. Took a big stride forward, it curves in as it travels through the air and then spins in to beat the inside edge with Kusal trying to flick. Struck in front of middle and off. Two games, two ducks for Mendis. HawkEye confirms the impact was in line with off stump and clipping leg 0/1
    20.2 taken at mid-off! And Naib poses for the cameras, showing off his biceps, and a big broad smile too. Tharanga, after struggling through new-ball swing, after being part of a terrible mix-up that led to the run-out of his partner, throws his wicket away by lifting a length ball on middle and off straight into Asghar Afghan's hands 88/4
    13.1 huge run out chance missed! Or wait. There has been a run out in one end, but they miss it at the other end. Deliberately pokes at a wide length ball and gets an outside edge to third man. There is miscommunication on the second run. Dhananjaya is at the same end as Tharanga who is very late in responding. They are nearly at the same end, but Shahzad has taken the bails off with Dhananjaya still nearing the crease. Shahzad completes the run out and then turns around and flicks the ball to the bowler's end where Naib makes a complete mess by running across and falling on the stumps before he can get his hands on it. That's the most convoluted sequence I have ever seen! 54/2
    19.5 premeditates the sweep and gets bowled! It's too full to play across the line like that and he basically ends up yorking himself. Rashid has a wicket in his first over. The sun rises in the east. And I'm always broke. 86/3
    34.6 taken at long-on! Rashid's the man under the ball again. And he comes into play with Mathews trying to break the shackles, coming down the track against Nabi and launching him down the ground. Gets too close to the ball, has no leverage to bring his power game into play 143/6
    27.1 clips a fuller one off the pads to midwicket, and oh dear, what's happening here! Utter chaos. Serious lack of communication. And this seems to be Mathews' fault. Says yes, comes down a few steps and then changes mind all of a sudden, leaving Shehan in the middle of nowhere. Awful, awful cricket 108/5
    40.2 Thisara goes, Sri Lanka's last recognised batsman. But, umm, this game's looked done for a while now. Thisara swings at this short of a length delivery, makes no contact as the ball crashes into middle stump 156/9
    35.3 bowled him! That's the legbreak, except it's the wrong'un and comes on like an offbreak. Shanaka has no clue about it, ball beats inside edge and takes out middle stump 144/7
    38.2 comes down the track and swipes ambitiously. Ball gets a peek between bat and pad, gleefully accepts it and goes past the inside edge to clatter into the stumps 153/8
    41.2 Rashid seals it with a googly. Beats the sweep after landing on a length and pins him in front of middle 158/10
