Pakistan in Sri Lanka ODI Series - 4th ODI

Sri Lanka v Pakistan

Sri Lanka won by 44 runs

2.2

Umar Gul to Tharanga, OUT, a sharp slip catch by Younis. Loose shot from Tharanga. Short of a length, outside off, holding the line a bit if anything, and Tharanga drives at it without any foot movement. It's a healthy edge to the left of second slip, and YK is alert there

WU Tharanga c Younis Khan b Umar Gul 4 (9m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 9/1   TM Dilshan 0* (6b)   Umar Gul 1.2-0-5-1

16.1

Mohammad Hafeez to Dilshan, OUT, Hafeez's golden arm strikes first ball. Premeditated sweep first ball. Dilshan misses the ball completely. On a length, just outside off, turning in slightly, hits him in front of middle and off. That's dead plumb

TM Dilshan lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 24 (74m 47b 2x4 0x6) SR: 51.06

Sri Lanka 64/2   KC Sangakkara 24* (42b 2x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 0.1-0-0-1

25.3

Mohammad Hafeez to Chandimal, OUT, Two dots and gone. Chandi feels like he needs to do something extraordinary. Looks to make room and cut a length ball, and Hafeez hits the off stump. Chandimal really does show the pressure if you can block his singles

LD Chandimal b Mohammad Hafeez 18 (28m 30b 2x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Sri Lanka 90/3   KC Sangakkara 31* (68b 2x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 4.3-0-13-2

43.4

Sohail Tanvir to Jayawardene, OUT, you can try all the fancy-shmancy slower balls, but I don't know many batsmen who can hit these. Yorker, angling in, headed for the base of the stumps, beats the open face, and uproots the leg pole

DPMD Jayawardene b Sohail Tanvir 40 (72m 50b 4x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Sri Lanka 200/4   KC Sangakkara 94* (127b 7x4 3x6)   Sohail Tanvir 6.4-2-23-1

44.2

Saeed Ajmal to Sangakkara, OUT, Azhar has pulled off a blinder. Or has he? They are checking the replays. Pulled towards deep midwicket as Ajmal follows him. Cramped for room, he doesn't make a good connection. Azhar rushes in from deep midwicket, and dives forward to catch a low catch. After many replays and zoom-ins, the umpires are satisfied he got the finger underneath it. Sanga is not too pleased with the decision. Or perhaps he is just upset he missed out on a ton

KC Sangakkara c Azhar Ali b Saeed Ajmal 97 (173m 130b 7x4 3x6) SR: 74.61

Sri Lanka 204/5   NLTC Perera 1* (1b)   Saeed Ajmal 8.2-1-43-1

46.1

Saeed Ajmal to Perera, OUT, Pakistan hold another catch. Perera tries the slog again. Clears the front leg, and swings. Not quite full enough for him, and hence the top edge into the deep on the leg side

NLTC Perera c Umar Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 8 (15m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Sri Lanka 214/6   AD Mathews 2* (3b)   Saeed Ajmal 9.1-1-46-2

48.3

Umar Gul to Thirimanne, OUT, Finally somebody hits the stumps direct when it matters. Low full toss, near yorker, dug out to point, tries to steal the single, Afridi hits the non-striker's end's stumps down. Beats him by half a frame. On the line when the bail comes off. Afridi is pretty thrilled with this

HDRL Thirimanne run out 13 (12m 9b 1x4 1x6) SR: 144.44

Sri Lanka 237/7   AD Mathews 7* (8b)   Umar Gul 7.3-1-49-1

49.5

Sohail Tanvir to Kulasekara, OUT, Timber. Short of a length. Kula stays back and swings, aiming for midwicket. Is beaten, and is bowled. This dismissal not only gets Pakistan a dot, it also keeps Mathews off strike for the last ball

KMDN Kulasekara b Sohail Tanvir 3 (7m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Sri Lanka 243/8   AD Mathews 10* (11b)   Sohail Tanvir 9.5-2-43-2
