  • Overs 101-150

Mathews to Taufeeq Umar, OUT, Taufeeq goes, a big strike for Sri Lanka, short and wide and he'd dispatched those deliveries for boundaries earlier in the innings, perhaps it didn't bounce as much as he would have liked, a thin edge and Prasanna, standing up to the stumps, makes no mistake, a sharp catch that

Taufeeq Umar c †HAPW Jayawardene b Mathews 65 (97m 74b 12x4 0x6) SR: 87.83

Pakistan 78/1   Mohammad Hafeez 12* (55b 1x4)   AD Mathews 4.3-1-20-1

Herath to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, got him! no double century for Hafeez, that was a flighted and full delivery from Herath, Hafeez went for the sweep after coming down the track but couldn't get bat on it, the ball knocks back leg stump, and a mammoth partnership comes to an end, Hafeez gone for 196, stand was worth 287, that was a bold shot to attempt with a double-century in sight

Mohammad Hafeez b Herath 196 (427m 331b 20x4 1x6) SR: 59.21

Pakistan 365/2   Azhar Ali 99* (219b 6x4)   HMRKB Herath 30.4-3-95-1

Herath to Younis Khan, OUT, Younis falls trying the sweep, a borderline call that, it was an arm ball that Younis looked to work towards square leg, he had taken a huge stride forward, he misses the ball and is struck just below the knee roll around off stump, might have been just outside, the umpire was convinced, Younis wasn't too happy with that, Herath gets reward for his tireless efforts

Younis Khan lbw b Herath 32 (80m 68b 1x4 0x6) SR: 47.05

Pakistan 435/3   Azhar Ali 134* (271b 8x4)   HMRKB Herath 40.3-5-123-2

Randiv to Azhar Ali, OUT, Azhar's vigil is over, Randiv gets his first wicket of the innings, Azhar looks for the reverse-sweep but doesn't get hold of it properly, hit off the middle but the ball loops to Kulasekara at point, and Azhar is gone for 157, matching his previous highest score

Azhar Ali c Kulasekara b Randiv 157 (458m 295b 9x4 0x6) SR: 53.22

Pakistan 486/4   Misbah-ul-Haq 28* (37b 2x4)   S Randiv 24.4-0-105-1

Randiv to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, a direct hit from Dilshan, and that is going to be a tough call for the third umpire, Shafiq might just be out here as his bat looks to be on the crease and not beyond it, the third ump takes his time, and after viewing it from several angles sends Shafiq on his way. It all started with Misbah waiting on the backfoot for the ball from Randiv to turn into his pads, then he tucked it towards square leg and set off for a run, Dilshan swooped on the ball and with one stump to aim at, he threw down the stumps

Asad Shafiq run out 2 (12m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Pakistan 491/5   Misbah-ul-Haq 31* (44b 2x4)   S Randiv 25.5-0-109-1

Herath to Adnan Akmal, OUT, another wicket for Herath, tossed up by him, Adnan looks to drive through cover, but ends up looping it towards short cover, simple catch

Adnan Akmal c Dilshan b Herath 5 (25m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 26.31

Pakistan 519/6   Misbah-ul-Haq 53* (65b 4x4)   HMRKB Herath 46.2-5-146-3
