View dismissal TM Dilshan b Shahid Afridi 46 48 39 8 0 117.94
10.5 Afridi has brought Pakistan right back, bowls a vicious quicker googly, Dilshan looks to cut, but there is neither time nor space to do so as he plays it on 89/2
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Younis Khan b Shahid Afridi 26 41 24 2 1 108.33
8.6 finally success for Pakistan, Afridi tosses this one the leg stump, Jayasuriya goes for the big slog, gets a top edge, was a googly I suspect, and it skies towards square leg, where Younis takes an easy catch 81/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† st †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 15 16 16 1 0 93.75
13.6 Sangakkara perishes looking to step the rate up, gives Ajmal the charge, who pushes the ball through, and surprisingly Sangakkara ends up playing inside the line, easy stumping for Akmal 110/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Shahid Afridi b Saeed Ajmal 19 26 18 2 0 105.55
17.1 Jayawardene tries his inside-out shot, has to manufacture it because there is no room, and since he plays it from too close he can't clear Afridi at extra cover, who takes a neat overhead catch 132/5
View dismissal LPC Silva c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 8 8 6 1 0 133.33
16.1 Silva walks down the track, makes sure he has sent a telegram to Gul, who pulls back the length, bowls the slower legcutter that gets the edge and settles in Akmal's gloves. Sri Lanka losing their way 128/4
View dismissal J Mubarak run out (Shoaib Malik/†Kamran Akmal) 5 19 10 0 0 50.00
19.4 from Umar Gul, fulltoss, swinging in, played towards long-ff, batsmen desperately go for the second, the throw follows Mubarak to the striker's end, and he is way short, Koertzen doesn't even go to the third umpire 148/6
AD Mathews not out 9 14 8 1 0 112.50
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara lbw b Umar Gul 0 1 1 0 0 0.00

View dismissal Salman Butt b Mathews 0 1 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 he has cleaned him up, what a choice for the first over ahead of Malinga - Mathews pitches it up again, Butt goes for the big drive, foot nowhere close to the ball, and it takes out the off, hint of swing there, down the slope 0/1
View dismissal Kamran Akmal run out (Silva/Mathews) 5 30 9 0 0 55.55
5.3 from Malinga, and then there were two, superb slower delivery, Akmal's feet don't move, he lobs this one from in front of his body towards midwicket. Although this one doesn't carry to the fielder, Akmal is late to start on the one, Silva keeps his cool and under-arms it, a desperate dive is not enough for Akmal 35/3
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Kulasekara b Malinga 28 19 20 5 0 140.00
5.1 another slower delivery, and it's a wicket this time, Malik slogs at this one outside off, 124ks, gets the inside half, and lobs this one straight to mid-on. Seems Malik had made his mind there was something special required to put Malinga off his rhythm 34/2
View dismissal Younis Khan* c †Sangakkara b Malinga 50 50 37 4 0 135.13
16.4 the slower ball does it again, this has to be the match, wide outside off this is, Younis is early into it, and lobs it towards short third man, Sangakkara runs and takes the catch, but there is a collision with Murali running in from third man. All safe, though 108/6
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq c Silva b Muralitharan 21 39 28 0 0 75.00
15.3 that was a good shot, but just managed to hit it at the right height for Sri Lanka, he rocks back early, pulls crisply, but finds out deep midwicket. Misbah was under pressure to get his first boundary 101/4
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Dilshan b Muralitharan 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
15.4 Boom Boom goes back to dressing room, almighty slog the first ball he faces, gets the top edge, picks out deep midwicket again 101/5
View dismissal Fawad Alam c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 12 17 11 1 0 109.09
19.3 another top edge, another swing across the line, and another easy catch for Sangakkara, what a way to delay the inevitable 123/8
View dismissal Sohail Tanvir c & b Malinga 3 10 7 0 0 42.85
18.6 finishes with a wicket, another slower delivery - I'm tired of picking the slower ones - and Tanvir slogs at it, gets a huge top edge, Malinga calls for it, gets under it, and catches it on the rebound 121/7
