152.5

Saeed Ajmal to Sangakkara, SIX, the slog sweep comes out, and fetches Sanga a big six over deep midwicket, that takes him to 199, apparently the scoreboard at the ground shows he has reached 200, Sanga celebrates, and soaks in all the applause, the dressing room joins in, before they realise he has to get one more, and then point it out to him

152.6

Saeed Ajmal to Sangakkara, no run, tries to get there with a hard push but it goes straight to cover, has to wait

153.1

Mohammad Hafeez to Pradeep, no run, defended down the pitch

153.2

Mohammad Hafeez to Pradeep, OUT, Kumar Sangakkara has been denied after all, after celebrating a double hundred that wasn't, Pradeep was given not out after a huge chunk of an outside edge earlier, this time he pushes forward inside the line of an offbreak that goes on to hit off stump, Sanga grimaces, and gets off the ground quickly

N Pradeep b Mohammad Hafeez 0 (15m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

A superbly patient and controlled innings from Sangakkara which turned into a crawl in the end to get to that double hundred. He's built a solid score for Sri Lanka on a pitch which is not easy for batting against spin at all. Big test coming up for Pakistan's inexperienced line-up, minus Misbah

"If you don't mind can you now acknowledge that I wished Sanga a "memorable 199" when he was on a score of around 172." Yes, Salman, you had.

Sarang: "Sanga becomes the second batsman to remain not out on 199. The first one was also a left-hander - Andy Flower." What a player, Andy Flower. This was in the second innings of the 2001 Harare Test v South Africa. He had also made 142 in the first innings and was the last man out. Shaun Pollock told him the follow-on was being enforced. Flower's reply: "Good"
