    0.1 bowled him! What a start! Vaas hits the perfect length first up and pitches it just outside off, the ball nips back into the left-hander and Butt drives forward at it, he gets a thin inside edge on to his stumps, he hardly moved his feet and turned around in time to see the ball clip off stump I wonder if Younis will be ready to walk out! 0/1
    31.6 he's done him in with a legcutter! Malik came out of his crease to play the ball on the leg side, Mendis beat him with a shorter length and slid the legcutter just enough to beat the outside of the bat, Sangakkara did the rest, Malik's gone for 52 off 79 balls which is just not good enough I'm afraid 133/4
    16.5 huge wicket! Younis tries to pull another short ball but it was slightly slower, the ball hit high on the bat and lobbed up towards midwicket where Murali pedaled backwards and took the catch, he raised his arms in delight at completing it 72/2
    25.6 lbw! Yousuf tries to sweep and gets his front foot a long way across his stumps, Mendis beats him with a fullish delivery which went straight on to hit Yousuf low on the front pad in front of middle, that's pretty plumb, it was too full for the sweep 108/3
    46.3 Misbah's resistance ends, he goes for a huge heave and misses a straight one from Mendis and gets bowled, Mendis has his fourth wicket 219/7
    32.3 what's Afridi done here? He's facing his first ball and he tries to smash it against the spin on the leg side, Jayasuriya tosses it up wide outside the off stump, Afridi makes contact outside off and skies the ball high in the air towards long off where the substitute Mubarak takes the catch 135/5
    35.5 lbw! Mendis pitches the ball on off stump and skids it through to Amjad who gets hit low on the front pad in front of middle stump, that is a quicker ball and Mendis appeals confidently, Tony Hill raises the finger 153/6
    47.2 bowled him! Kulasekara pitches the slower ball on a good length on off stump and slants it into the right-hander, Sarfraz tries to cut but gets beaten by the change of pace 223/8
    not out
    48.4 caught! Murali picks up his first wicket, Iftikhar tries to play the slog sweep but gets a top edge which lands safely in Kulasekara's hands at short fine leg 236/9
