Pakistan in Sri Lanka Test Series - 2nd Test

Sri Lanka v Pakistan

Sri Lanka won by 7 wickets

Overs 0-50

2.2

Kulasekara to Khurram Manzoor, OUT, Manzoor is gone, nicks it through to the keeper, the previous delivery had come into the batsman, and he was looking to cover for that movement again, to a delivery that pitched just outside off, but the ball held it's line and a thin outside edge gives Sri Lanka the early breakthrough

Khurram Manzoor c †Dilshan b Kulasekara 3 (11m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Pakistan 4/1   Fawad Alam 0* (5b)   KMDN Kulasekara 1.2-0-3-1

3.1

Thushara to Younis Khan, OUT, big blow for Pakistan, Younis Khan chops it on to his stumps, it was a short ball and the angle was taking it across the batsman, who tries to cut it but gets a bottom edge, one bounce and it rattles the stumps, a duck for Younis

Younis Khan b Thushara 0 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 6/2   Fawad Alam 0* (7b)   T Thushara 1.1-1-0-1

4.4

Kulasekara to Mohammad Yousuf, OUT, Kulasekara strikes, Yousuf is gone, Pakistan in disarray here, pitched up by the bowler outside off, Yousuf bends his knee as he drives it gracefully, but straight to the fielder at point, Rangana Herath, who takes a good, low catch

Mohammad Yousuf c Herath b Kulasekara 10 (8m 6b 2x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

Pakistan 17/3   Fawad Alam 1* (10b)   KMDN Kulasekara 2.4-0-6-2

6.4

Kulasekara to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, Kulasekara is on fire here, he gets rid of Misbah with a ripper of a delivery, Kulasekara keeps probing away around that offstump, this time the ball swerves sharply in towards the batsman, Misbah doesn't adjust for the movement as he defends off the front foot, an inside-edge results, and Dilshan dives to his left to pouch it

Misbah-ul-Haq c †Dilshan b Kulasekara 0 (9m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 19/4   Fawad Alam 2* (11b)   KMDN Kulasekara 3.4-0-6-3

14.6

Mathews to Fawad Alam, OUT, Alam's big early move toward the offstump costs him, he is way across to a ball that pitched on middle stump and held it's line, he misses as he tries to defend, and is rapped in front, Simon Taufel sends Alam on his way, no doubt about that one

Fawad Alam lbw b Mathews 16 (81m 33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 48.48

Pakistan 51/5   Shoaib Malik 15* (28b 3x4)   AD Mathews 2-0-6-1

18.2

Thushara to Kamran Akmal, OUT, a nothing delivery from Thushara gets him a wicket, it was a back of a length and wide outside off, Akmal moved across his stumps a long way reducing the room for the cut, gets a thin top edge, Dilshan gets another catch, poor batting that

Kamran Akmal c †Dilshan b Thushara 9 (14m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

Pakistan 67/6   Shoaib Malik 22* (38b 4x4)   T Thushara 5.2-1-20-2

27.4

Kulasekara to Abdur Rauf, OUT, Rauf long scoreless vigil ends, he played down the wrong line there, back of a length ball, pitching outside off, hits Rauf just below the knee roll in front of middle, that would have crashed into legstump, Kulasekara's day continues to get better

Abdur Rauf lbw b Kulasekara 0 (34m 34b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 74/7   Shoaib Malik 27* (62b 4x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 7.4-2-17-4

31.4

Mendis to Umar Gul, OUT, a full toss gives Mendis his first wicket of the day, very soft dismissal that, Gul wanted to loft that delivery from off and middle over cover, but can't clear the man

Umar Gul c Samaraweera b Mendis 1 (15m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 7.14

Pakistan 80/8   Shoaib Malik 31* (72b 5x4)   BAW Mendis 7.4-2-14-1

35.5

Mendis to Mohammad Amir, OUT, quicker delivery from Mendis, Aamer is hit on the pads in front of legstump and umpire Harper rules that lbw, replays show the ball pitched outside leg though

Mohammad Amir lbw b Mendis 2 (17m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

Pakistan 90/9   Shoaib Malik 39* (88b 5x4)   BAW Mendis 9.5-3-20-2

35.6

Mendis to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, Two-in-two for Mendis, another lbw, Ajmal gets a golden duck, a full toss strikes Ajmal low in front of middle and leg, the umpire has no hesitation in ruling that one out

Saeed Ajmal lbw b Mendis 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 90/10   Shoaib Malik 39* (88b 5x4)   BAW Mendis 10-3-20-3
Overs 0-50
