View dismissal MDKJ Perera c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 8 8 8 1 0 100.00
1.4 85.1 mph, a really rubbish ball from Gul slanting outside off as Kusal is tempted to have a go, but slams still straight to short cover, who takes a good catch. Looks like it was the Pakistan captain who took that sharp take. Sri Lanka lose their first wicket with just 15 on the board. Gul has simply been on a roll since returning to international cricket 15/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan b Umar Gul 8 18 7 1 0 114.28
3.2 83.1 mph, Dilshan was definitely perturbed by the previous delivery as he decides to leave this one outside off, but this one is the inswinger, and comes back in just enough to knock back his off stump. Really tame way to go out as Sri Lanka are in a bit of bother at 22 for 2 22/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara run out (sub [Anwar Ali]/Mohammad Hafeez) 51 109 78 3 0 65.38
28.5 from Mohammad Hafeez, tries to guide this past the point region, with the batsmen looking to complete a single, but there is a big miscommunication between the two batsmen, with Sangakkara being sold the dummy as he is well short of his crease as he looks to return back to the non-striker's. Big wicket against the run of play as these two looked comfortable for many more. The batsmen had crossed, but Sangakkara was hesitant for the run until he knew it would be safe to go through 125/4
View dismissal LD Chandimal c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 5 17 12 1 0 41.66
7.2 82.0 mph, Misbah takes another great catch, this time at short cover, as Chandimal unfurls a full-bloodied drive, in the air, straight at the Pakistan captain. Gul had set him up with the length, and Chandimal took the bait. Misbah actually plucked that one-handed, so it just gets better and better. Sri Lanka in trouble here at 36 for 3 36/3
View dismissal SMA Priyanjan b Junaid Khan 74 112 93 10 0 79.56
35.3 87.2 mph, Junaid knocks him over with a good length ball on the stumps, as Ashan, looking to play this one cheekily through fine leg with a paddle, ends up getting his off stump knocked back. The shot was never really on as his fine innings come to a rather abrupt end on 74 165/5
View dismissal AD Mathews* lbw b Saeed Ajmal 38 64 46 2 1 82.60
44.1 59.4 mph, fuller one which has Mathews caught on the back foot. This one looked plumb but Mathews wants the umpire to have a second look. After quite a while of deliberation, the third umpire confirms the on-field decision, and Mathews goes for a well-played 38 210/7
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c & b Saeed Ajmal 1 6 7 0 0 14.28
36.6 58.8 mph, ends up spooning this low full toss straight back to Ajmal, almost as if he was in a daze, as this half-hearted push is caught one-handed by Ajmal to bring a premature end to Kulasekera's innings 170/6
View dismissal KDK Vithanage c Sohaib Maqsood b Junaid Khan 27 44 26 4 0 103.84
47.6 73.1 mph, full and on leg as Vithanage goes for the big hit over midwicket, but doesn't get enough on it as the ball carries to Maqsood at deep midwicket, who holds on to the chance. Pakistan now nine down and with still two overs to go 225/9
View dismissal SMSM Senanayake b Saeed Ajmal 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
44.2 57.6 mph, Ajmal simply on a roll as he bowls Senanayake first ball, with this one coming in from round the wicket and going through the gate left open by pad and bat 210/8
RAS Lakmal not out 2 18 11 0 0 18.18
View dismissal SL Malinga c †Umar Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 0 4 5 0 0 0.00
48.5 57.4 mph, once again going for the big swipe and this time Malinga gets an outside edge which Akmal does well to catch from behind. 225/10

View dismissal Sharjeel Khan b Mathews 13 23 16 2 0 81.25
5.1 74.5 mph, slower, back of a length ball, as Mathews gets a fantastic Christmas present, with this one bowling Sharjeel, who seemed to be playing the wrong line, as this one beats the edge on the way to the off stump 31/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad c Senanayake b Lakmal 44 90 56 5 0 78.57
20.2 84.5 mph, not sure what Shehzad was thinking there as he edges this one straight into the hands of first slip from this back of a length offering from Lakmal. Was set on 44 and there really was no need for this, as Senanayake does well to hold on to the chance 115/2
