Pakistan tour of Sri Lanka, 1st T20I: Sri Lanka v Pakistan at Hambantota, Jun 1, 2012
Sri Lanka won by 37 runs

Umar Gul to Dilshan, 3 runs, swings into the pads from a fullish length, he adjusts to work it past midwicket from middle and leg


Umar Gul to Sangakkara, no run, opens the face and pushes a length ball going across him, to point


Umar Gul to Sangakkara, 1 run, moves into the left-hander from back of a length, worked softly towards midwicket for one


Umar Gul to Dilshan, 1 wide, too much with the angle into the right-hander, and down the leg side from a good length


Umar Gul to Dilshan, 1 run, ending on off stump and bouncing a tad, worked awkwardly in front of square leg


Umar Gul to Sangakkara, no run, drives a pitched up ball neatly but straight to mid off


Umar Gul to Sangakkara, 2 runs, Sanga gets away, advances out, makes some room outside leg, and slashes this one hard in the air, but it bounces in front of Tanvir running across from squarish third man

Sri Lanka 11/1   Umar Gul 1-0-8-0

Umar Gul to Chandimal, no run, another direct hit, and Angelo was out comfortably, Chandimal pushing a length ball in front of extra cover, Angelo wanted the single, he was halfway up the pitch before he turned back, he was so far out that after the throw missed, the man backing up at mid on also had another go, but he too missed, Angelo was back by then though


Umar Gul to Chandimal, 1 run, worked off the pad through square leg


Umar Gul to Mathews, 1 run


Umar Gul to Chandimal, 3 runs, goes for a slog to a back of a length ball, manages to get it over mid on, it is stopped just inside the rope eventually


Umar Gul to Mathews, no run, works to midwicket and holds up a hand immediately to the advancing Chandimal


Umar Gul to Mathews, no run, that looked very close in real time, he was caught in the crease to one that nipped back in, no appeal from Pakistan, height? did not seem to be an inside edge

Sri Lanka 36/3   Umar Gul 2-0-13-0

Umar Gul to Perera, 2 runs, back of a length ball guided past point from close to the body


Umar Gul to Perera, 2 runs, turned to midwicket but it goes through Afridi's hands, he stands with hand on head and watches the ball roll to long on


Umar Gul to Perera, no run, he was getting forward, but Gul has him weaving out of the way of an accurate and sharp bouncer


Umar Gul to Perera, FOUR, shortish and into the body, he swings hard and gets it high and over short fine leg, it rolls into the rope


Umar Gul to Perera, SIX, smack! that is in his zone, pitched up on the stumps, he gets forward, makes some room and thumps it high over long on


Umar Gul to Perera, 1 run, Gul goes for the yorker, not quite there, but full enough to prevent Perera from getting underneath it for a swing, rolls to the off side

Sri Lanka 106/7   Umar Gul 3-0-28-0

Umar Gul to Kulasekara, no run, swing and a miss outside off to the pitched up ball


Umar Gul to Kulasekara, FOUR, slower one has been handled well, short just outside off, Kula pulls it through midwicket


Umar Gul to Kulasekara, 1 run, punches a full toss straight past the bowler, long off manages to cut it off


Umar Gul to Perera, 1 bye, Gul gets some bad bounce as keeper under-arms the ball along the ground to him, and they take the bye


Umar Gul to Kulasekara, 2 wides, bouncer now, Gul cannot collect the lob from the keeper yet again, and it is a wide for height as well, comfortably over the batsman


Umar Gul to Perera, SIX, goes full, Perera likes it, he makes some room outside leg and lifts it over wide long on


Umar Gul to Perera, 2 runs, slogs at a slower one outside off, it sails over square leg and they take two more

Sri Lanka 132/7   Umar Gul 4-0-43-0
