    0.3 he has cleaned him up, what a choice for the first over ahead of Malinga - Mathews pitches it up again, Butt goes for the big drive, foot nowhere close to the ball, and it takes out the off, hint of swing there, down the slope 0/1
    5.3 and then there were two, superb slower delivery, Akmal's feet don't move, he lobs this one from in front of his body towards midwicket. Although this one doesn't carry to the fielder, Akmal is late to start on the one, Silva keeps his cool and under-arms it, a desperate dive is not enough for Akmal 35/3
    5.1 another slower delivery, and it's a wicket this time, Malik slogs at this one outside off, 124ks, gets the inside half, and lobs this one straight to mid-on. Seems Malik had made his mind there was something special required to put Malinga off his rhythm 34/2
    16.4 the slower ball does it again, this has to be the match, wide outside off this is, Younis is early into it, and lobs it towards short third man, Sangakkara runs and takes the catch, but there is a collision with Murali running in from third man. All safe, though 108/6
    15.3 that was a good shot, but just managed to hit it at the right height for Sri Lanka, he rocks back early, pulls crisply, but finds out deep midwicket. Misbah was under pressure to get his first boundary 101/4
    15.4 Boom Boom goes back to dressing room, almighty slog the first ball he faces, gets the top edge, picks out deep midwicket again 101/5
    19.3 another top edge, another swing across the line, and another easy catch for Sangakkara, what a way to delay the inevitable 123/8
    18.6 finishes with a wicket, another slower delivery - I'm tired of picking the slower ones - and Tanvir slogs at it, gets a huge top edge, Malinga calls for it, gets under it, and catches it on the rebound 121/7
