1.1

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, and first ball, he gets the line right, pitched up, inviting Dilshan into a big drive outside off, and beating him

1.2

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, this one pitched outside leg on a good length, and Dilshan has no problems in defending

1.3

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, 1 run, another one pitching outside leg, coming onto the pads, and worked easily past midwicket for the first runs of the Test

1.4

Junaid Khan to Paranavitana, no run, nips back in quite sharply from a good length outside off, Para watches it all the way as he shoulder arms

1.5

Junaid Khan to Paranavitana, no run, does not seem to be much in this pitch for the quicks, tame length ball solidly played out to point

1.6

Junaid Khan to Paranavitana, 1 run, pitched up but no movement in the air, Para gets forward low, and pushes towards cover for one

Sri Lanka 2/0   Junaid Khan 1-0-2-0

3.1

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, similar to the first one from Junaid Dilshan went after, pitched up just outside off and leaving him with the angle, left alone this time

3.2

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, bit of away shape this time just outside off stump, not full enough to draw Dilshan into a massive drive, he lets it go

3.3

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, still closer to off stump, bit of bounce, Dilshan leaves again, for how long?

3.4

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, slants it across, slightly wider now, not much bounce, dies on its way to the keeper

3.5

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, 3 runs, after four tight deliveries, he strays fullish onto the pads, and Dilshan gets away with an eager whip past in front of square leg

3.6

Junaid Khan to Paranavitana, 1 run, worked to leg for a single with the angle

Sri Lanka 11/0   Junaid Khan 2-0-6-0

5.1

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, some bounce outside off stump, left alone on a good length

5.2

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, that's closer to off, pitched up too, and Dilshan thinks about a drive, cannot get hold of it and mistimes it to mid off, some away swing there for Junaid

5.3

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, not much pace from Junaid, 126.6 kph, Dilshan lets it go past him outside off

5.4

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, 3 runs, and angles it into the pads, Dilshan puts it away in front of square, and it needs a dive from the chasing man to prevent four

5.5

Junaid Khan to Paranavitana, no run, nothing at all at the moment for Junaid, widish pitched up straight ball left alone outside off

5.6

Junaid Khan to Paranavitana, 1 run, much better line, close to off, bit of nip off the pitch too, Para pushes softly in front of cover for a tight run

Sri Lanka 21/0   Junaid Khan 3-0-10-0

12.1

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, pushes a pitched up ball firmly to mid off

12.2

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, 2 runs, short of a length, worked off the pads through square leg for a couple, man from fine leg runs across

12.3

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, decent line, but Dilshan has left rather effectively outside off stump today, and does so again

12.4

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, and just as I say so, he is drawn out with the angle and good length, not a big drive, just a defensive push, but beaten still

12.5

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, wants the single as he pushes a length ball to extra cover, not getting it

12.6

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, FOUR, tries the short ball, it won't be working much on this slow pitch, Dilshan has enough time to swivel and pull hard through square

Sri Lanka 45/0   Junaid Khan 4-0-16-0

14.1

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, half-forward, and easily able to play out the good length ball just outside off

14.5

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, this is the dangerous Dilshan, he is willing to let go of the urge to hit a third successive four, he calmly lets a length ball go past outside off

14.6

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, excellent finish to the over from Junaid, big appeal from the keeper as Dilshan drives inside the line of the delivery pitched up closer to off, did not seem to be an edge

Sri Lanka 59/0   Junaid Khan 5-0-24-0

16.1

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, 3 runs, width from back of a length, and Dilshan smacks it happily past extra cover

16.3

Junaid Khan to Sangakkara, 1 run, tapped in front of point for a sharp single

16.4

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, no run, appeal for lbw, but it pitched well outside leg stump, length was not bat at all, Dilshan missed the work on the leg side

16.5

Junaid Khan to Dilshan, 1 run, this time he gets bat down in time and works it wide of mid on for one, Junaid has been pitching outside leg often this morning

16.6

Junaid Khan to Sangakkara, no run, Adnan is appealing for everything, Junaid looks back at the umpire from his followthrough, does not seem to be any edge from Sanga as he prods inside the line of a back of a length ball
