View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez* c Thirimanne b Lokuarachchi 24 43 34 3 0 70.58
10.1 Kaushal gets another. Soft dismissal. Short, on the pads, stays a touch low, hurries onto him, and he has hit it straight to shortish midwicket 41/4
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad lbw b Kulasekara 6 8 6 1 0 100.00
2.1 Shehzad is gone. Dead plumb. Inswinger from Kula, on a length, and Shehzad is caught on the back foot and beaten. Hit right in front. When Kula gets the inswingers right and accurate, he is a tough customer 11/1
View dismissal Khalid Latif run out (Perera) 1 11 6 0 0 16.66
4.6 Perera to Mohammad Hafeez, Hafeez has hit a straight drive to claim the wicket of Latif! Crisply hit back at Perera. This is going for four. But Perera gets a touch to it, and the ball hits the stumps. Latif is backing up, and hasn't had time to get back. They don't even call for the replays. The finger goes up, Latif goes out 18/2
View dismissal Umar Akmal lbw b Lokuarachchi 5 13 12 0 0 41.66
8.1 and he strikes first ball. Akmal premeditates a paddle, Kaushal bowls a flat legbreak, and he misses. My first reaction says Akmal is unlucky, but I am still waiting for replays. I am wrong. This is a good decision. Length ball, pi6ches outside off, doesn't turn, goes with the angle, hits him in front of off. The lack of turn did him in 29/3
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Dilshan b Perera 27 47 26 3 0 103.84
18.3 Dilshan takes this one, but is still cross with himself for having dropped the previous one. Short again, but stays a little low. Malik pulls, and finds Dilshan to perfection. Dilshan throws the ball away in disgust, and doesn't even join the others in celebrating. Clearly disappointed with the previous delivery 109/5
Shahid Afridi not out 52 46 33 5 1 157.57
View dismissal Yasir Arafat c Dilshan b Kulasekara 2 4 3 0 0 66.66
19.3 bouncer, Arafat comes down the track, and cuts it in the air, straight to Dilshan at sweeper-cover. Dilshan still not emoting much. Arafat has at least brought Afridi back on strike 119/6

View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Shoaib Malik b Yasir Arafat 8 15 9 1 0 88.88
3.2 Arafat gets the wicket. For no obvious reason, Sangakkara - who has the run-rate under control - dances down the track and slashes at the fast bowler. Mis-hits it straight to point, and Pakistan are still in it 19/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan b Shahid Afridi 18 38 21 4 0 85.71
7.5 Sahibzada Mohammad Shahid Khan Afridi doesn't need the umpire this time. No turn again. No room again. A frustrated Dilshan goes to cut a ball that is neither short nor wide. Cleaned up. And Afridi raises his arms in the Boris Becker celebration 39/3
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c Shoaib Malik b Yasir Arafat 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
3.6 Sri Lanka have let Pakistan back in through some ordinary batting and inexplicable thinking. Promoted to No. 3, Kulasekara plays three dots before going for another wild hit, and manages to lob it as far as cover-point. T20 doesn't follow reason or logic 19/2
View dismissal CK Kapugedera b Shahid Afridi 19 34 23 2 1 82.60
11.3 and Afridi has his right index finger up in the air as his team-mates gather around him. He has fired this slider in, and before Kapu realises it has crashed through the gate to flatten the stumps 62/4
View dismissal LD Chandimal b Sohail Tanvir 12 27 18 0 0 66.66
14.5 Tanvir strikes timber. Too much pressure. Slower ball. Chandimal tries the scoop over the keeper. He is through the shot before the ball arrives. When it does arrive, the ball hits the leg stump 76/5
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c †Shakeel Ansar b Mohammad Sami 18 20 19 2 0 94.73
16.2 he has done Thirimanne in for pace here. Sami copped a lot of flak the other night, but Sami has come back superbly. Not too short, but this bounces chest high, with no room. And then the pace. To late into the pull. Keeper completes an easy catch 85/6
View dismissal AD Mathews* c Shahid Afridi b Yasir Arafat 11 28 11 0 0 100.00
19.2 fittingly Afridi gets the last touch on the ball. This is his 50th T20I, and he has scored a fifty, taken wickets, and then the final catch. Mathews slices this slog towards long-off, and Afridi charges in to complete a low catch. Hafeez is delighted at first win as captain 99/10
View dismissal NLTC Perera b Mohammad Sami 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
16.4 you can't keep a really quick man down for to long. Good to see real raw pace in a format where "taking the pace off" is the regulation delivery. Sami is quick, straight, just short of a length, and has burst through Perera's defences. Timbahhhh. Boy, is Sami pumped? 90/7
View dismissal KS Lokuarachchi st †Shakeel Ansar b Saeed Ajmal 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
17.2 Don't bother about the dots. Ajmal gets a wicket. Reminiscent of Tino "mind-the-windows" Best. Kaushal leaves the crease even before the ball is delivered, and all Ajmal has to do is bowl the straighter delivery, and he is stumped by miles 91/8
View dismissal SMSM Senanayake c Sohail Tanvir b Mohammad Sami 1 5 4 0 0 25.00
18.2 Sami is running through them here. A poor shot. He is looking to sweep Sami, and this is a length ball well wide of him. The top edge is gleefully accepted at cover 94/9
