Sri Lanka won by 6 wickets (with 38 balls remaining)
1 August 2009 (50-over match)

Kulasekara to Nasir Jamshed, OUT, we have a first ball strike! Poor shot by Jamshed, the ball lands outside off and swings away, not sure if Jamshed wanted to leave it in the last minute, he hangs his bat out half-heartedly and tamely chips it to Mahela who cups it above his head at second slip

Nasir Jamshed c Jayawardene b Kulasekara 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 0/1   Kamran Akmal 0* (0b)   KMDN Kulasekara 0.1-0-0-1

Thushara to Kamran Akmal, OUT, the openers are gone and a good catch by Samaraweera, Thushara bowls it in the channel outside off and pitches it up, Kamran shapes to drive square but gets a thick outside edge which travels low and quickly to the slips,Samaraweera falls to his left, cups it comfortably on the dive

Kamran Akmal c Samaraweera b Thushara 13 (27m 19b 3x4 0x6) SR: 68.42

Pakistan 21/2   Younis Khan 7* (16b 1x4)   T Thushara 1-0-5-1

Thushara to Shoaib Malik, OUT, he goes for a duck, he pitches it back of a length on middle stump and gets it to hold its line, Malik's caught at his crease on the backfoot and the ball hits him on the top flap of the pad, may be a trifle too high, I'm not terribly convinced about that, reminds me of Mitchell Johnson's wicket yesterday

Shoaib Malik lbw b Thushara 0 (6m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 21/3   Younis Khan 7* (22b 1x4)   T Thushara 1.4-0-5-2

Mathews to Umar Akmal, OUT, poor shot and Umar will rue that, he gets on the front foot and slashes hard at a delivery which holds its line, thick outside edge and Mathews didn't have to look back for confirmation

Umar Akmal c †Sangakkara b Mathews 18 (43m 28b 3x4 0x6) SR: 64.28

Pakistan 53/4   Younis Khan 16* (52b 2x4)   AD Mathews 1.2-0-7-1

Thushara to Fawad Alam, OUT, that extra delivery has fetched Sri Lanka a strike! Poor shot by Fawad, he tries to upper cut a short delivery and gets a thick edge to Sangakkara who takes it in front of his face, the nick was loud and clear

Fawad Alam c †Sangakkara b Thushara 10 (25m 24b 0x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

Pakistan 67/5   Younis Khan 19* (62b 2x4)   T Thushara 6-2-17-3

Muralitharan to Younis Khan, OUT, very tame dismissal, Murali continues bowling round the wicket and pitches it up on the pads, Younis tries to work him to the on side, lunges forward and ends up chipping it loosely to Kapugedera at short midwicket, one of the easiest of catches

Younis Khan c Kapugedera b Muralitharan 23 (113m 73b 2x4 0x6) SR: 31.50

Pakistan 78/6   Shahid Afridi 6* (5b 1x4)   M Muralitharan 1.4-0-9-1

Muralitharan to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Pakistan slip further, Murali bowls round the wicket and flights it on middle and leg, Afridi takes him on and mows him high over the on side but Jayasuriya's stationed there at deep midwicket for the catch

Shahid Afridi c Jayasuriya b Muralitharan 7 (18m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

Pakistan 87/7   Abdul Razzaq 2* (5b)   M Muralitharan 2.1-0-10-2

Muralitharan to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, direct hit from the substitute Bandara! Razzaq opens the face of the bat and squezzes it out towards short third man and looks to pinch a quick single, there's a near collision mid-pitch, Bandara knows Gul is struggling and fires a direct hit at the striker's end, Gul's way out of his crease despite the dive and the third umpire takes a look

Umar Gul run out 14 (38m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 53.84

Pakistan 125/8   Abdul Razzaq 16* (40b 1x4)   M Muralitharan 7.2-0-30-2

Jayasuriya to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, Razzaq loses patience but it costs him his wicket, he tries to take the bowler downtown but fails to clear Thushara at long-on who falls backwards before the rope

Abdul Razzaq c Thushara b Jayasuriya 17 (51m 43b 1x4 0x6) SR: 39.53

Pakistan 128/9   Mohammad Amir 1* (3b)   ST Jayasuriya 2.2-0-12-1

Malinga to Mohammad Amir, OUT, an under arm flick ends the innings, Aamer drops the ball in front of him and they try to pinch a quick single, Ajmal is struggling to make his ground but Malinga was too quick for him, he under arms the ball on the dive and the third umpire takes a look at the direct hit

Saeed Ajmal run out 16 (33m 23b 1x4 0x6) SR: 69.56

Pakistan 168/10   Mohammad Amir 24* (32b 3x4)   SL Malinga 10-0-37-0
