View dismissal WU Tharanga c Azhar Ali b Wahab Riaz 92 266 179 12 0 51.39
59.3 what a catch! It was angled into the pads, and Tharanga flicked that, he middled that flick, and Azhar Ali reacts like a flash to grab that while falling to his right. Didn't have too far to move, but he had no time to get his hands in position. Ah. It lodged in his midriff, but still, had to react quickly to make sure it didn't slip out 177/4
View dismissal JK Silva c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Junaid Khan 41 142 106 6 0 38.67
32.5 here's the first one! The classic ploy. A bouncer followed by a fuller one. Well, it wasn't exactly full, more like on a length.. But what did Silva here was the slight away movement. He was pushing from the crease anyway, without getting forward, and gets a thick edge to the keeper. Superb stuff there by the bowler 79/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara b Wahab Riaz 22 68 45 2 0 48.88
47.5 bowled him! All those bouncers, followed by a full-length ball that snaked in extremely late to dip into the gap between bat and pad and crash into the top of off stump, after a bit of a deflection off the back thigh. Super bowling. They check for a no-ball, and he's juust about landed his heel behind the crease 144/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene lbw b Saeed Ajmal 4 33 16 0 0 25.00
54.6 HE'S GONE! Sharp turn again from outside off, but the length was the key here, and Mahela was caught on the crease as the ball rapped his front pad just in line with off stump, I think. The umpire's finger went up immediately. Hawkeye suggests it's flicking the leg bail 167/3
View dismissal AD Mathews* c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Wahab Riaz 39 144 86 3 0 45.34
85.1 and that's that for Mathews. It's a short ball, and he shuffles across and looks to pull. Goes through to the keeper with some sound on the way. Not sure what it touched. He was given out and he reviewed... and yes, it certainly kissed his glove 261/8
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Junaid Khan 20 54 50 2 0 40.00
74.3 edged, and this time it's a straightforward catch to the keeper. It was back of a length, just outside off, and it straightened a touch. That one ball that came back in has been playing on Thirimanne's mind, perhaps, and he hung his bat out and got a tickle through to Sarfraz. This is superb bowling from Junaid 215/5
View dismissal N Dickwella lbw b Junaid Khan 24 39 27 2 0 88.88
82.2 how's that? That was full, angling in, and Dickwella's head falls over as he tries to work that leg side, and is pinged on the front pad in front of the stumps. The finger goes up, and Dickwella decides to review... Looks like it's angling down... but it's just clipping leg stump, according to Hawkeye, and that means it's the umpire's call, and that means it's out. Junaid has three now 249/6
View dismissal MDK Perera lbw b Junaid Khan 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
82.5 very full now, and it's another loud appeal as Dilruwan gets his front pad across and is struck low down looking to work around it. Not given, and Pakistan review. Whoa. It's pitched in line, Hawkeye says, and it's smashing into the inside of the leg stump. No edge either, and Dilruwan has to go 249/7
View dismissal KTGD Prasad lbw b Junaid Khan 13 50 34 2 0 38.23
92.5 this one's out, for sure, and the umpire agrees. It's full and angled in and Prasad was struck on the back pad in front of middle, stuck on the crease. He's not been coming forward to the full ball all morning, and it needed one well-directed full ball to get him in trouble. Junaid's produced it and he now has a five-for. Hawkeye says this one was also flicking the leg bail, closer to the corner of the stumps. For some reason, this looked more out than the previous one at first viewing 284/9
View dismissal HMRKB Herath c Younis Khan b Abdur Rehman 17 71 27 2 0 62.96
99.3 and that is that. Herath pushes forward to defend outside off, playing for turn, and it goes pretty much straight on and takes an outside edge through to first slip. Simple catch for Younis Khan, who becomes the first Pakistan cricketer to take 100 Test catches 320/10

View dismissal Khurram Manzoor c †Dickwella b Herath 23 35 35 5 0 65.71
8.4 super delivery! Khurram was drawn forward by the flight, and it dipped and turned a long way from outside off and took his outside edge as he looked to defend. He had no need to play at that so far outside off if he was only looking to defend, but he did, and Dickwella is ecstatic after taking a smart catch to his right 47/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad c †Dickwella b Perera 58 154 85 7 0 68.23
34.5 down the leg side again and that's a terrific catch from Dickwella. That was a poor ball, should have been hit for four, but he only managed a little tickle with the inside edge and Dickwella ghosts to his left to intercept. Shehzad didn't even look at the umpire, just walked off as soon as it lodged in the keeper's gloves 122/3
View dismissal Azhar Ali c Mathews b Herath 32 102 77 2 0 41.55
31.3 oh man. What has he done here? That was a horrific shot. Down the track, didn't reach the pitch of the ball, and was he foxed by the arm ball? Was looking to hit down the ground, ended up pulling it much wider than he would have wanted, straight into the hands of Mathews at an unorthodox short mid-on. Rush of blood ends what was looking like a solid innings 110/2
View dismissal Younis Khan c †Dickwella b Herath 13 32 26 1 0 50.00
38.6 what a catch, but is that out? The umpire's gone to the third umpire for this. That was full, outside off, and Younis pushed forward to defend and he played that down into his boot. It went straight up off his boot and Silva dived forward from silly point, caught it one-handed, and flung it immediately to the keeper. Given! Amazing work from the silly point fielder, but the catch will go down as Dickwella's, I think 131/4
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c †Dickwella b Herath 5 32 19 1 0 26.31
42.1 and Misbah's gone! Lovely delivery from Herath. Dipped on the batsman, turned away sharply, and took the outside edge through to Dickwella as Misbah poked forward to defend 140/5
View dismissal Asad Shafiq b Herath 42 119 90 2 0 46.66
66.6 bowled him, through the gate, and that's five for Herath! What a delivery that was. Having spun the last two away from Shafiq, this one goes with the angle, and it finds the gap between pad and bat, which pushes out looking for turn, and crashes into the top of off stump 233/6
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed c †Dickwella b Herath 103 216 127 7 1 81.10
89.4 lovely, lovely bowling to get his eighth. It's tossed up a bit more, and dips on Sarfraz as he pushes forward to drive through cover. Doesn't get to the pitch, and he gets an outside edge through to Dickwella, who takes it on the second attempt. End of a superb innings from Sarfraz 315/9
View dismissal Abdur Rehman c Jayawardene b Herath 16 50 47 2 0 34.04
78.4 that was beautifully bowled. Created the angle across the left-hander by going around the wicket, and slanted that across fairly flat and full. Rehman followed it and played for turn. There wasn't any, and the edge settles nicely in Mahela's hands at slip 273/7
View dismissal Wahab Riaz c Welegedara b Herath 17 41 32 2 0 53.12

View dismissal JK Silva c Younis Khan b Abdur Rehman 17 104 72 1 0 23.61
24.2 taken! What a catch by Younis, diving low to his left. Silva jumps down the track, and doesn't quite get to the pitch. Goes for a big drive, but it spun hard and he gets a thick outside edge that goes past the right glove of Sarfraz and into Younis' hands inches above the grass. The umpires have a look at whether it was a clean take, and it definitely was 79/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Azhar Ali b Saeed Ajmal 59 203 130 4 0 45.38
66.2 got him! That's a difficult ball to play, turns and bounces from middle and leg, and he's opened up slightly as he pushes out in front of his body and gloves it to silly point, who stays in his crouch and takes a good catch low to his right 186/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Ahmed Shehzad b Saeed Ajmal 54 192 137 8 0 39.41

Shehzad runs back and to his left from midwicket and takes a good tumbling catch, and Mahela walks off, raising his bat to the crowd, big smile on his face 189/4

82.3 what a delivery! That's the doosra, bowled slow outside off, and he went on the back foot, looking for the offbreak to cut or punch through the off side. Came in instead, and went between bat and pad and crashed into off stump as he tried hurriedly to bring his bat down to defend 212/5
View dismissal N Dickwella lbw b Wahab Riaz 21 55 41 2 0 51.21
95.1 well bowled! It was a good length ball, moved in a touch, and it caught Dickwella on the crease, shuffling across, and hit him on the back pad in front of off and middle. Finger immediately went up, and Dickwella didn't review 247/6

95.3 that's plumb, and Dilruwan bags a pair! Angled in again, full, and he's hit in front of middle, trying to work across the line, after planting his front pad in front of the stumps, and Hawkeye shows it's clipping leg stump, after the batsman made a late decision to review 247/7
View dismissal KTGD Prasad run out (sub [Umar Akmal]/Saeed Ajmal) 19 53 40 1 1 47.50
106.2 from Saeed Ajmal, oho, here's a third umpire call. Back of a length now, turns and bounces sharply, and he inside-edges that onto thigh pad, and it bounces just past short leg. They take off for a run, and it wasn't the best idea, since Prasad was well short as Ajmal collected Umar Akmal's throw from midwicket. He didn't collect cleanly, and the ball deflected off his hands into the stumps. Bit of time taken to establish that the ball disturbed the bails and not Ajmal's hands, which followed through and hit the stumps themselves, and the third umpire is satisfied it was okay. 278/8
View dismissal HMRKB Herath b Wahab Riaz 0 7 4 0 0 0.00
107.4 bowled him! That's the old reverse-swinging yorker, hits the base of the stumps on the full, actually, sneaks in between Herath's bat and rapidly retreating pad. They check for a no-ball, but his front foot is totally fine 282/9

108.6 Saeed Ajmal to Mathews, short, a bit of width, and he cuts this to point. Another run-out appeal as they run the quick single and Wahab fires in a low, flat throw to the keeper. Welegedara's bat is definitely a few inches short of the crease as Sarfraz whips off the bails 282/10

3.4 and he's gone! Poor shot from Khurram. It was wide outside off, not quite up there to drive, but he went hard at it with an angled bat and got a little tickle through to Dickwella 17/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad lbw b Prasad 8 29 16 1 0 50.00
5.5 good ball, and he's caught on the shuffle! That came in sharply off the seam, from just outside off, and he shuffled across, looking to work into the leg side, and was hit on the pads in front of off and middle, I think. He thinks a long time about reviewing, asks Azhar, finally decides to go for it, and the umpires tell him he's taken too long. Once again, the Shehzad-Azhar pair provide some pure DRS comedy! 21/2

View dismissal Younis Khan lbw b Herath 8 58 30 1 0 26.66
18.1 huge lbw appeal, Dickwella goes crazy, and goes even crazier as the finger goes up. Younis looked to sweep that from middle stump, missed completely, and the ball hit him on the back thigh (he was down on his knee) in front of middle. He reviews it, and they're looking to see if he got an inside edge as his bat swept across the ball. No sign of any defection. Ball pitched in line with off, went straight on with the angle, and that was hitting the stumps two-thirds of the way up 50/5
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c Jayawardene b Herath 3 18 11 0 0 27.27
14.3 Pakistan are in all kinds of trouble now. That was fired in with a lower trajectory, with that round-arm action, and it spun sharply from middle stump, took the outside edge as he looked to defend, and Mahela at slip takes number 205 39/4
View dismissal Asad Shafiq st †Dickwella b Herath 32 75 62 5 0 51.61
34.4 gone! This was always going to be a danger when you keep running at the bowler on a turning track. This is a lovely length by Herath, slow and turning, dips just in front of the advancing Shafiq then grips and slips past the blade. Dickwella does some sharp work behind the stumps. 105/6
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed c Sangakkara b Welegedara 55 127 89 2 0 61.79
49.1 and that, I suppose, is that. It's angled across, wide of off, and Sarfraz goes for the sweep. Hits it uppishly, and straight into the hands of Sangakkara at deep square leg 151/8
View dismissal Abdur Rehman lbw b Perera 5 14 10 0 0 50.00
37.5 gone! Rehman makes a poor choice to leave one that seemed to be heading for the stumps. This is fired in a little flatter on about off stump, would have gone on to hit the wickets at first glance. Doesn't matter where it's hit him, because he had not played a shot, but it seemed to hit him in line anyway. 122/7
View dismissal Wahab Riaz c Silva b Herath 17 67 46 1 1 36.95
52.1 whoa, ho! And that's the win for Sri Lanka. Looks to launch this over the leg side, and the top-edge goes flying way over the off side. Sanga ran to his right from point, Kaushal to his left from short cover, and they collided, but Sanga emerged with the ball in his hands 165/10

49.1 to Sarfraz Ahmed, and that, I suppose, is that. It's angled across, wide of off, and Sarfraz goes for the sweep. Hits it uppishly, and straight into the hands of Sangakkara at deep square leg 151/8

3.4 to Khurram Manzoor, and he's gone! Poor shot from Khurram. It was wide outside off, not quite up there to drive, but he went hard at it with an angled bat and got a little tickle through to Dickwella 17/1
5.5 to Ahmed Shehzad, good ball, and he's caught on the shuffle! That came in sharply off the seam, from just outside off, and he shuffled across, looking to work into the leg side, and was hit on the pads in front of off and middle, I think. He thinks a long time about reviewing, asks Azhar, finally decides to go for it, and the umpires tell him he's taken too long. Once again, the Shehzad-Azhar pair provide some pure DRS comedy! 21/2
View wickets HMRKB Herath 22.1 2 57 5 2.57 95 5 0
10.2 to Azhar Ali, and Herath has struck! Simple catch to Mahela at slip after Azhar pushes forward, opened up by the inward angle, and gets a thick outside edge 31/3
14.3 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Pakistan are in all kinds of trouble now. That was fired in with a lower trajectory, with that round-arm action, and it spun sharply from middle stump, took the outside edge as he looked to defend, and Mahela at slip takes number 205 39/4
18.1 to Younis Khan, huge lbw appeal, Dickwella goes crazy, and goes even crazier as the finger goes up. Younis looked to sweep that from middle stump, missed completely, and the ball hit him on the back thigh (he was down on his knee) in front of middle. He reviews it, and they're looking to see if he got an inside edge as his bat swept across the ball. No sign of any defection. Ball pitched in line with off, went straight on with the angle, and that was hitting the stumps two-thirds of the way up 50/5
34.4 to Asad Shafiq, gone! This was always going to be a danger when you keep running at the bowler on a turning track. This is a lovely length by Herath, slow and turning, dips just in front of the advancing Shafiq then grips and slips past the blade. Dickwella does some sharp work behind the stumps. 105/6
52.1 to Wahab Riaz, whoa, ho! And that's the win for Sri Lanka. Looks to launch this over the leg side, and the top-edge goes flying way over the off side. Sanga ran to his right from point, Kaushal to his left from short cover, and they collided, but Sanga emerged with the ball in his hands 165/10
View wicket MDK Perera 13 1 46 1 3.53 45 2 0
37.5 to Abdur Rehman, gone! Rehman makes a poor choice to leave one that seemed to be heading for the stumps. This is fired in a little flatter on about off stump, would have gone on to hit the wickets at first glance. Doesn't matter where it's hit him, because he had not played a shot, but it seemed to hit him in line anyway. 122/7
