View dismissal Kamran Akmal b Bandara 57 88 64 7 0 89.06
19.5 the death rattle will hurt Akmal, he shapes to sweep with the ball pitched outside leg, he's onto the shot too early and the ball spins off the rough and hits the off stump 106/2
View dismissal Imran Nazir b Thushara 23 44 29 4 0 79.31
9.5 high full toss and Nazir's late afternoon slog yields nothing! He steps down the pitch and swings across the line but fails to read the full toss and the ball cannons onto his off stump 61/1
View dismissal Younis Khan* c Kapugedera b Thushara 89 161 111 4 0 80.18
48.5 Younis' fine effort comes to an end, he makes room but fails to put away a full toss over the ropes, the ball splices to Kapugedera at long-on 306/5
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf c Jayawardene b Mendis 6 10 12 0 0 50.00
22.4 lazy shot by Yousuf, Mendis flights it outside off and gets the ball to come on straight, Yousuf drives away from the body and edges it to first slip, Jayawardene juggles and takes it in the second attempt 115/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq lbw b Bandara 9 11 10 0 0 90.00
25.4 quite straightforward, Bandara flights it on middle and off, Misbah gets a huge stride forward, tries to work it to the on side but leaves a gap between bat and pad, the ball holds its line and strikes him on the base of the pad in front of the stumps, umpire Gamini Silva gives him out 130/4

View dismissal WU Tharanga c †Kamran Akmal b Iftikhar Anjum 80 139 89 8 1 89.88
32.2 that could be the end of Sri Lanka's chances, another batsman poking outside off only to nick it to the keeper, a fairly innocuous delivery which Tharanga feathers through to Akmal 166/6
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Mohammad Amir b Naved-ul-Hasan 19 25 19 2 1 100.00
5.5 Pakistan get a very important strike, Rana hits the deck hard and draws Mahela onto the hook, he doesn't control it very well and the top edge swirls to Aamer at fine leg 36/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c Imran Nazir b Iftikhar Anjum 39 52 33 6 0 118.18
16.1 straight after the drinks break, and a soft dismissal! Rao bowls a harmless half volley outside off and Sangakkara reaches out to drive, gets under the bounce and tamely scoops it to Nazir at cover point, catching practice thank you Sir 101/2
View dismissal SHT Kandamby c Younis Khan b Saeed Ajmal 15 26 27 1 0 55.55
23.4 clever bowling from Ajmal, he bowls it quicker and holds the length back, Kandamby is forced on the backfoot and the ball comes on a lot quicker than expected, thick outside edge and Younis falls to his left and takes the catch 130/3
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c Naved-ul-Hasan b Saeed Ajmal 8 21 17 0 0 47.05
29.5 one of the most stunning outfield catches you will see! But Rana's in pain... Kapugedera chips down the track and tries to take Ajmal downtown over long-off and nearly succeeds, Rana pedals backwards, the ball swirls in the air and he throws himself backwards and takes it one-handed, cops a painful blow to the head and he lies still for a long while, his team-mates rush towards him in concern, he's all well now 157/4
View dismissal TT Samaraweera c †Kamran Akmal b Iftikhar Anjum 2 6 6 0 0 33.33
30.6 another one bites the dust! Rao pitches it on a good length outside off and gets it to move away just a touch, Samaraweera tries to run it down to third man but gets a thick edge to Kamran 159/5
View dismissal AD Mathews st †Kamran Akmal b Shahid Afridi 8 23 10 1 0 80.00
35.2 they're nine down, he sashays down the track to blast it out of the stadium but fails to read the flight or the turn, one of the easiest stumpings for Kamran 175/9
View dismissal HMCM Bandara c Misbah-ul-Haq b Shahid Afridi 0 5 5 0 0 0.00
33.1 Pakistan edge closer to victory, Afridi lands it outside off and Bandara wasn't quite sure what to do with it, he gets a thick leading edge to first slip 167/7
View dismissal T Thushara b Iftikhar Anjum 0 8 6 0 0 0.00
34.6 timber! Rao bowls a lovely inswinger almost on the blockhole, Thushara is beaten for pace and the ball clips his pads and heads straight to the leg stump, difficult for any tail ender to pick 171/8
View dismissal SL Malinga c Misbah-ul-Haq b Iftikhar Anjum 0 6 1 0 0 0.00
36.1 and it's all over, Pakistan complete a comprehensive victory, a back of a length ball on off stump, Malinga leaves his bat hanging as he tries to defend off the back foot, gets an outside edge to first slip 175/10
