View dismissal WU Tharanga c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Sohail Tanvir 18 33 25 3 0 72.00
7.1 Tanvir strikes. This is a length ball, outside off, lands on the upright seam, holds its line, and takes the edge of the pushing bat. Tharanga walks 37/1
TM Dilshan not out 119 210 139 11 1 85.61
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c & b Mohammad Hafeez 18 40 27 1 0 66.66
16.1 and a breakthrough he provides. Who could have guessed this? A flat, straight loosener, Sanga goes back to punch this. Does it stop a bit? Perhaps. Perhaps not. However, he ends up lobbing this off the toe end, back for a soft catch to Hafeez. Don't shake Hafeez's hand any time soon. You might turn to gold 84/2
View dismissal LD Chandimal lbw b Shahid Afridi 32 50 51 3 0 62.74
30.6 Afridi strikes finally. Slower through the air, and that's what made Chandimal play for the turn here. Pitches on off, and finds Chandimal playing well outside the line as this one slides trhough and raps him on the pad in front of middle and off. Easy lbw decision for the umpire 154/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* b Saeed Ajmal 53 62 45 8 0 117.77
45.4 bowled'im. MJ shimmies down, plays for an offbreak, looking to go inside out, but this one doesn't turn and hits the top of off. Ajmal shows emotion through a fistpump 240/4

  Pakistan innings (target: 281 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c & b Perera 14 46 29 1 0 48.27
10.1 stunning caught and bowled by Perera. Sri Lanka needed some magic, and Perera has produced it. Length ball, driven back at him, Perera's natural reaction to get away from the stumps after delivering, so he fights that motion, and dives full length onto the pitch to grab this one-handed 48/1
View dismissal Azhar Ali b Kulasekara 96 156 119 12 0 80.67
36.3 he has broken the leg stump into two. How fast bowlers love that sight. Azhar is making room, and Kula bowls the yorker, right at the base of the leg stump. It squeezes under the bat, and ends the innings short of a century 157/5
View dismissal Younis Khan c †Sangakkara b Perera 4 25 13 0 0 30.76
16.5 the horse hasn't quite bolted. YK, like life, presents Sanga a second opportunity, and he grabs it with both hands. A loose drive outside off, another edge, and this time - as Bob Willis would say - Sanga makes no mistakes. That was well short of a driving length 78/2
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* lbw b Perera 27 51 35 1 0 77.14
29.1 Perera is having a great day. Gets a wicket with the first ball of a spell for the second time. A bit of an offcutter, short of a length, outside off, beats the inside edge, hits his back pad in front of off. The line is not a question here. The only doubt has to be the height, but Paul Reifell has no such doubts. And he has been spot on today 127/3
View dismissal Umar Akmal c †Sangakkara b Perera 3 15 11 0 0 27.27
33.2 another wicket for Perera, another wicket before the Powerplay, but Umar Akmal can't believe he has been given out. Short of a lenght, looks to run it fine to the right of the keeper, misses, and has been given out. Replays show there is clear flood light between bat and ball. Akmal is not impressed 139/4
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c †Sangakkara b Malinga 17 21 16 2 0 106.25
37.4 that's a lovely catch from Sanga. That should do it for the game, and should make up for that drop too. It's a slower ball, mind you. Short of a length, Afridi looks to run it down, gets an edge, and it goes not only wide, it is also dying on Sanga. He dives full length, and plucks this one-handed. That's his 300th catch too. Not a bad way to bring it up 165/6
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed lbw b Kulasekara 20 44 27 2 0 74.07
46.2 slower ball, huge appeal for lbw as he misses a flick, and he is given. Was down the wicket, but that looked straight. Going down as it was an offcutter, but given. That levels the series 204/10
View dismissal Sohail Tanvir c Tharanga b Perera 3 12 10 0 0 30.00
40.1 Boy, can he ever? The third time he has taken a wicket with the first ball of a new spell tonight 170/7
View dismissal Umar Gul lbw b Perera 14 16 13 0 1 107.69
44.4 that's his No. 6, a personal best for Perera. Gul is a sitting duck. Stays in the crease, and swings across the length. Misses, and is dead plumb. Couldn't have been plumber 197/8
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal c †Sangakkara b Malinga 4 5 5 1 0 80.00
45.6 another short ball, Ajmal backs away and swings again, edges it safely through to Sanga. Better out than injured 204/9
