Danish Kaneria to Sangakkara, OUT, he's given him! That looked out on first sight, short of a length outside off and spun in sharply, walked across to play it away on the leg side, missed it and was rapped on the pads right in front of middle, that was plumb!

KC Sangakkara lbw b Danish Kaneria 65 (110m 66b 10x4 0x6) SR: 98.48

Danish Kaneria to DPMD Jayawardene, OUT, Mahela goes! Tossed up outside leg stump, tries to work it away in front square, ended up playing straight to Faisal Iqbal at short leg who held on to a sharp chance. Big blow and the pressure is back on!

DPMD Jayawardene c Faisal Iqbal b Danish Kaneria 22 (58m 38b 2x4 0x6) SR: 57.89

Umar Gul to Dilshan, OUT, gone!! Long hop on middle, goes for the pull, mistimes it straight to Faisal Iqbal at deep square leg, who's standing well inside the ropes. His aggressive streak has brought about his downfall here, couldn't resist the temptation to dismiss a short ball

TM Dilshan c Faisal Iqbal b Umar Gul 8 (10m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Umar Gul to Paranavitana, OUT, run out, full on the off stump, pushed gently to mid-off and they scamper down for a single, Arafat picks it up cleanly and throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end to find the debutant short of his ground

NT Paranavitana run out (Yasir Arafat) 9 (30m 19b 2x4 0x6) SR: 47.36

Umar Gul to Warnapura, OUT, edged and gone!! Good length outside off, pushes at it lazily, gets a thin edge and Akmal dives low to his left to take a sharp catch, could there be a twist in the tale here?

SM Warnapura c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 2 (4m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00
