30 July 2009 (50-over match)

Umar Gul to Jayasuriya, OUT, Gul strikes with his second delivery, Jayasuriya is gone, not the greatest of deliveries, short and wide, Jayasuriya has both feet off the ground as he cuts the ball, a bit of a top edge, straight to Mohammad Aamer at third man

ST Jayasuriya c Mohammad Amir b Umar Gul 15 (38m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 78.94

Sri Lanka 31/1   WU Tharanga 11* (31b 1x4)   Umar Gul 0.2-0-4-1

Abdul Razzaq to Tharanga, OUT, finally Tharanga's troubled stay comes to an end, he had played and missed many times already and this time he gets the edge, a length ball just outside off, a thin edge through to the keeper

WU Tharanga c †Kamran Akmal b Abdul Razzaq 17 (55m 44b 1x4 0x6) SR: 38.63

Sri Lanka 45/2   KC Sangakkara 7* (7b)   Abdul Razzaq 5.4-0-17-1

Saeed Ajmal to Sangakkara, OUT, Sangakkara holes out to point, huge wicket for Ajmal, slower through the air and gets some turn there, Sangakkara looked to cut it over the infield but ends up giving an easy catch to Afridi

KC Sangakkara c Shahid Afridi b Saeed Ajmal 36 (62m 40b 3x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

Sri Lanka 93/3   DPMD Jayawardene 17* (25b 1x4)   Saeed Ajmal 2.2-0-8-1

Shahid Afridi to Kapugedera, OUT, Afridi strikes, Kapugedera drives away from his body at a length ball outside off, results in an outside edge which Akmal collects gleefully

CK Kapugedera c †Kamran Akmal b Shahid Afridi 8 (13m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

Sri Lanka 106/4   DPMD Jayawardene 22* (36b 1x4)   Shahid Afridi 2.1-0-6-1

Abdul Razzaq to Samaraweera, OUT, Samaraweera departs to a shot he wouldn't like to look at again, it was wide outside off and he looked to pull that one, was a bit early into the shot and spoons it to Younis at mid-on

TT Samaraweera c Younis Khan b Abdul Razzaq 10 (18m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.63

Sri Lanka 125/5   DPMD Jayawardene 31* (50b 1x4)   Abdul Razzaq 7.4-0-21-2

Abdul Razzaq to Jayawardene, 1 run, OUT, is that a run-out? Jayawardene was in trouble as he was coming back for the second, he's well out of his ground, but it remains to be seen whether the keeper has the ball in his hand as he broke the stumps, after several replays the third umpire is satisfied Akmal had the ball in his gloves and Jayawardene has to go, there was never two runs in that, the ball had barely made it past the inner circle near midwicket, Younis was onto it quickly and threw it to the right end, the keepers, and Sri Lanka are in big trouble now

DPMD Jayawardene run out 33 (88m 56b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.92

Sri Lanka 131/6   AD Mathews 4* (4b)   Abdul Razzaq 8.2-0-25-2

Mohammad Amir to Kulasekara, OUT, Kulasekara departs as Razzaq hangs on to a skier, the batsman was looking to clear mid-off for a boundary, the ball goes high towards extra cover, Razzaq dropped a similar one earlier in the day but doesn't blow it this time

KMDN Kulasekara c Abdul Razzaq b Mohammad Amir 16 (43m 33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 48.48

Sri Lanka 173/7   AD Mathews 29* (39b 1x4)   Mohammad Amir 7.3-0-28-1

Mohammad Amir to Mathews, OUT, Mathews' innings comes to an end, caught and bowled, he was too early into his shot and only managed to lob it back to the bowler Aamer, who juggled it a few times before hanging on

AD Mathews c & b Mohammad Amir 43 (69m 50b 3x4 0x6) SR: 86.00

Sri Lanka 204/8   M Muralitharan 16* (5b 2x4 1x6)   Mohammad Amir 8.1-0-30-2

Mohammad Amir to Muralitharan, OUT, Aamer ends the Murali show with a yorker which hits the base of offstump, Aamer has kept his head despite the glut of runs, good work from the youngster

M Muralitharan b Mohammad Amir 32 (24m 15b 4x4 1x6) SR: 213.33

Sri Lanka 223/9   T Thushara 3* (2b)   Mohammad Amir 9.1-0-36-3
