View dismissal Sharjeel Khan b Kulasekara 2 12 12 0 0 16.66
2.6 79.6 mph, bowled 'im! Sharjeel was looking to whip that towards the leg side, this one swerved away a touch after pitching on middle and leg, crashes into the top of off as Sharjeel fails to connect, early breakthrough for SL here 2/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad run out (Malinga) 81 122 89 6 2 91.01
30.5 Malinga to Mohammad Hafeez, wow, how incredible is this! Malinga after putting down the simplest of catches now pulls off a superb bit of fielding to break the big stand, Hafeez pushed this one to the right of Malinga, who moved across from his follow-through to collect the ball, he spotted that Shehzad is out of his crease, Shehzad was scrambling back but the throw from Malinga crashes into off stump, Shehzad is so short of the crease that the third umpire is not required, Shehzad wasn't helped by the fact that his bat got stuck in the turf as he tried drag his bat towards the crease 162/2
Mohammad Hafeez not out 140 203 136 11 3 102.94
View dismissal Sohaib Maqsood c Senanayake b NLTC Perera 21 29 21 1 2 100.00
36.5 85.5 mph, Maqsood has given it away here, a harmless length ball that he wanted to thump for six more, he ends up chipping it to Senanayake at long-on, 21 off 21, decent hand from Maqsood 200/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c Karunaratne b NLTC Perera 40 39 26 3 2 153.84
45.2 63.2 mph, Misbah is gone! a great hand but it comes to the end with a tame shot, another poor ball from Perera, a hit-me full toss, a touch slower from Perera, Misbah could have slammed it where he wanted over the leg side, he can't connect properly and gives a catch to deep midwicket 275/4
View dismissal Shahid Afridi b Malinga 2 5 4 0 0 50.00
46.4 83.9 mph, short of length ball on middle stump, Afridi goes for the booming shot once more, he misses and that crashes into middle stump, Afridi is on his way 281/5

View dismissal MDKJ Perera c Ahmed Shehzad b Umar Gul 7 15 13 0 0 53.84
3.1 83.3 mph, an early wicket for Gul on his return, this was pitched up, and an uppish drive is well taken at backward point 17/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan b Shahid Afridi 59 94 62 10 0 95.16
21.3 62.0 mph, seemed to be a poor ball, it was very short but it stayed lower than Dilshan expected, he was shaping to thrash that to the leg side, it sneaks under his bat and crashes into the top of middle 103/4
View dismissal FDM Karunaratne c †Umar Akmal b Umar Gul 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
3.5 82.9 mph, two wickets in an over for Gul, he's got rid of Karunaratne here, this was angling across outside off, an outside edge through to the keeper, no feet at all as he wafted 17/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Sohaib Maqsood b Junaid Khan 14 25 14 2 1 100.00
8.6 89.5 mph, the big one, Sangakkara is gone, he goes for the pull, he needed to get it right off the middle if he had to clear the man at deep midwicket, plenty of time for Maqsood to get under that one, can Sri Lanka come back form this blow? 44/3
View dismissal LD Chandimal c Sohaib Maqsood b Mohammad Hafeez 36 72 53 3 0 67.92
27.5 55.2 mph, no half-century this time as well for Chandimal, after 44 and 46, he's gone for 36 today, he wasn't near the pitch of the ball though he came down the track, still decided to go for the big shot, perhaps because of the three dot balls that preceded, he slices it high and towards deep midwicket, Maqsood takes the catch, Sri Lanka are five down, the day just gets better and better for Hafeez 132/5
View dismissal AD Mathews* c †Umar Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 44 68 51 1 3 86.27
38.6 57.3 mph, who is going to catch that? surely the keeper's catch, Hafeez also wants it, the keeper calls for it and takes it, Hafeez is not happy for some reason, in any case Mathews is gone, it was a doosra from Ajmal, Mathews wanted to slog that over midwicket, top edges it and it swirls towards square leg, SL are nine down 192/9
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c †Umar Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 1 7 11 0 0 9.09
30.5 60.2 mph, there's the wicket, Kualsekara was having a tough time out there, this was well outside off, Kulasekara looked to drive away from the body, gets a thin inside-edge and Umar Akmal takes a sharp low catch, well done Akmal, and that also means Ajmal breaks the Pakistan record for most international wickets in a year with 102, beating Saqlian Mushtaq in 1997 136/6
View dismissal S Prasanna c Saeed Ajmal b Mohammad Hafeez 22 9 15 2 2 146.66
33.6 57.8 mph, Seekkkuge is gone, a short of length ball on the pads, Seekkuge gets on one knee and looks to power that to the square leg boundary, connects well but not well enough to clear ajmal on the boundary, an overhead catch is taken and the SL innings continues to disintegrate, and that ends one of the most action-packed overs in a long time 163/7
View dismissal NLTC Perera c Shahid Afridi b Junaid Khan 2 12 6 0 0 33.33
37.2 84.5 mph, that's the end of Perera, Afridi has a long way to go to pluck that skier, it was a top edge from Perera, that went miles up in the air over the keeper's head, the keeper runs back but he can't get there in time, Afridi can, takes it and then pulls out the starfish celebration to show how much he enjoyed it 187/8
SMSM Senanayake not out 4 30 12 0 0 33.33
View dismissal SL Malinga b Umar Gul 19 20 27 4 0 70.37
44.4 79.7 mph, game over, good return game for Gul, he finishes it off with a full ball that crashes into the stumps, three dots and the fourth one takes out the stumps, completes a dominant performance from Pakistan 213/10
