Saeed Ajmal to Paranavitana, OUT, Ajmal has struck in his first over, after being denied two balls ago, Para has not looked very comfortable against spin this morning, he has looked to charge out at Hafeez as well, tries the same against Ajmal, beaten completely by the flight and turn, and Adnan will not do an Azhar Ali, he completes the stumping

Saeed Ajmal to DPMD Jayawardene, OUT, wicket after an age for Pakistan, Mahela departs, the sweep and the reverse sweep have worked well for him against Ajmal, he tries the slog-sweep now, to a flighted ball on off stump, misses it as he bends and lunges forward for the big stroke, and the ball crashes into off, Ajmal leaps high in celebration, he is pumped

Saeed Ajmal to Samaraweera, OUT, superb delivery from Ajmal, lovely control, tosses up the doosra, draws Thilan out for the drive with so much air, Thilan ends up losing his balance and pushing well inside the line as the ball carries across with the angle, drags his back foot out, and by the time he brings it back in, Adnan has taken the bails off

103.6

Saeed Ajmal to Mathews, OUT, Ajmal is having the Sri Lanka middle order for an early lunch, now he has two in two, and a five-for, has Angelo reaching out to loosely push a very full and flighted ball around off, and accepts the dolly of a return catch, it straightened after pitching, Angelo ended up pushing outside the line, was he expecting it to carry across with the angle

149.1

Mohammad Hafeez to Sangakkara, 1 run, OUT, and after all that blocking and turning down singles, Sanga's latest attempt to keep the strike is in vain, he drives this full one hard wide of long off, Gul runs across and lets the throw rip, Sanga wants the second, Herath had little chance of making it back if the throw was on target, Hafeez collects it and takes the bails off, Herath is comfortably short

HMRKB Herath run out 0 (26m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

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
