Sohag Gazi to Dilshan, OUT, caught at mid-off And here comes a wicket! Dilshan charged out again as he has been doing and Gazi makes a subtle change in the direction, tosses it up wide. The batsman gets to the ball, but gets a toe-end to that and it flies low to mid-off, who has come in to the normal position now. The fielder takes a good low catch to send the danger man back

TM Dilshan c Mominul Haque b Sohag Gazi 54 (107m 63b 9x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Sri Lanka 114/1   KC Sangakkara 31* (51b 3x4)   Sohag Gazi 7-0-30-1

Sohag Gazi to Karunaratne, OUT, Gazi strikes this time! It was a quicker delivery on the middle and the batsman, who was on the back foot, was late in bringing his bat down, it pitched outside off and hit him right in front of the middle. Dimuth Karunaratne's innings has been cut short by a good delivery

FDM Karunaratne lbw b Sohag Gazi 41 (105m 61b 3x4 1x6) SR: 67.21

Sri Lanka 181/2   KC Sangakkara 71* (107b 10x4)   Sohag Gazi 14-1-53-2

Sohag Gazi to Sangakkara, OUT, caught at cover! Oh from nowhere, Sanga has given it away! the wicket goes to Gazi - it could only have gone to him. He tossed it up full and wide outside off, the batsman took the invitation and went for the booming drive through cover, but wasn't able to keep it down. The fielder at short cover palm it over his head and then takes it on the second go. Gazi's heart must have been in his mouth, but the wicket as come.

KC Sangakkara c Jahurul Islam b Sohag Gazi 142 (239m 226b 16x4 3x6) SR: 62.83

Sri Lanka 305/3   HDRL Thirimanne 48* (92b 5x4)   Sohag Gazi 28-2-94-3

Abul Hasan to Mathews, OUT, oh my! What have you done Angelo! It was a harmless delivery on off stump and the batsman tried to manufacture a shot towards leg side, gets a leading edge that lobs up for the bowler to gobble up. Immediate reward for Hasan for some disciplined bowling this morning. The captain ran out of patience in just two overs!! First wicket for Hasan too. He has a bowling average now - 180.00

AD Mathews c & b Abul Hasan 27 (72m 60b 4x4 0x6) SR: 45.00
