1.6

Mohammad Amir to Warnapura, OUT, he knocks him out in his first over! He bangs it in short of a length outside off and gets it to swerve back in sharply with the angle, Warnapura is completely cramped for room as he shapes to cut and chops the ball onto the stumps

SM Warnapura b Mohammad Amir 2 (9m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Sri Lanka 3/1   NT Paranavitana 0* (4b)   Mohammad Amir 1-0-2-1

5.1

Mohammad Amir to Sangakkara, OUT, This time the fielders make no mistake! Aamer bowls it short of a length and gets the ball to straighten outside off, a tentative Sanga pokes his bat out and gets a thick outside edge which settles in malik's palms at third slip, waist high, he didn't have to move an inch

KC Sangakkara c Shoaib Malik b Mohammad Amir 9 (17m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 21/2   NT Paranavitana 9* (14b 1x4)   Mohammad Amir 2.1-0-10-2

21.6

Abdur Rauf to Jayawardene, OUT, sudden loss of concentration! Rauf pitches it uo a bit outside off and gets the ball to hold its line, Mahela gets forward and tentatively places his bat forward to defend but the ball takes a thick outside edge, Akmal will be a relieved man after dropping Mahela earlier this morning

DPMD Jayawardene c †Kamran Akmal b Abdur Rauf 30 (82m 48b 6x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

Sri Lanka 96/3   NT Paranavitana 52* (68b 8x4)   Abdur Rauf 6-1-27-1

39.4

Abdur Rauf to Paranavitana, OUT, and they lose a wicket against the run of play! Rauf bowls it a fraction short outside off and gets it to rise up, Tharanga is rooted to the crease as he tries to steer it to the off side and he manages a thick outside edge to Misbah at first slip, the ball carries through almost at chest height

NT Paranavitana c Misbah-ul-Haq b Abdur Rauf 72 (182m 125b 11x4 0x6) SR: 57.60

Sri Lanka 139/4   TT Samaraweera 21* (49b 2x4)   Abdur Rauf 8.4-1-33-2

45.2

Younis Khan to Samaraweera, OUT, oh and he's struck second ball, would you believe! Younis delivers the breakthrough with another delivery pitched up right on the upright seam, it deviates and an unsure Samaraweera feebly has a push and Akmal accepts the thick outside edge, cuing a big celebration from Younis

TT Samaraweera c †Kamran Akmal b Younis Khan 31 (98m 67b 3x4 0x6) SR: 46.26

Sri Lanka 160/5   TM Dilshan 11* (16b 2x4)   Younis Khan 2.2-1-7-1

54.1

Mohammad Amir to Dilshan, OUT, straightaway! Aamer feeds him a gift by pitching it up wide outside off, Dilshan falls for the bait and slices it straight down Malik's throat at gully

TM Dilshan c Shoaib Malik b Mohammad Amir 28 (59m 43b 4x4 0x6) SR: 65.11

Sri Lanka 194/6   AD Mathews 17* (26b 2x4)   Mohammad Amir 12.1-2-43-3

64.2

Umar Gul to Mathews, OUT, very unfortunate end to a promising innings, Gul bangs it in short down the leg side and Mathew shapes to pull, he goes through with the shot too early and ends up gloving it, the ball balloons off hus gloves and Akmal is alert enough to change direction and take the catch jumping to his right

AD Mathews c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 42 (78m 57b 6x4 0x6) SR: 73.68

Sri Lanka 241/7   KMDN Kulasekara 22* (30b 3x4 1x6)   Umar Gul 12.2-3-40-1

75.3

Younis Khan to Kulasekara, OUT, Kula's neat little innings comes to an end, Younis isn't afraid to pitch it up again after being hit for a boundary, Kulasekara goes for a flashy square drive and gets a thin edge to the keeper

KMDN Kulasekara c †Kamran Akmal b Younis Khan 38 (92m 62b 5x4 1x6) SR: 61.29

Sri Lanka 271/8   HMRKB Herath 14* (35b 1x4)   Younis Khan 5.3-2-19-2

78.5

Saeed Ajmal to Thushara, OUT, that's nine down! Thushara prids forward to defend but gets a leading edge which balloons to Manzoor at silly point, he takes a sharp catch one-handed but releases the ball very quickly before the celebration, brought back memories of Gibbs and Waugh in the 1999 World Cup

T Thushara c Khurram Manzoor b Saeed Ajmal 10 (13m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.90

Sri Lanka 282/9   HMRKB Herath 15* (44b 1x4)   Saeed Ajmal 22.5-4-75-1
