    20.5 taken at mid-off! Hasaranga gets his revenge! Tosses this one fuller and closer to Fakhar's swing. He hit him wide of mid-off last over when there was more width. This time he's forced to drive from inside the line and he ends up getting it off the low part of the outside half. Bat swivels in his hands and this floats seductively to Udana's right. He follows the path and puts something of a slow-mo dive to grab onto a well-judged catch 104/2
    14.4 broke in sharply and hit him on the pad. Big shout, not given. Sri Lanka are reviewing. That's a cracking delivery, drifts a tad and spins back, leaving him with bat hanging outside off. He was flummoxed by the turn, and DRS shows three reds, so Imam has to be on his way! Great ball, great decision to review. 73/1
    45.5 caught at square leg. Not short enough to pull but he has a go at it anyway. The bat turned in his hand and the ball swirled up high. Square leg latched on and held on. That was a tired shot, but he's done his job. 261/5
    39.2 mix up and Haris Sohail has to go!. This was a length ball outside off, Babar tried to flick, it took an inside edge and flicked his pad and rolled away towards slip. Sohail wanted a single and was charging down the track, Babar was never interested and/or aware of what his partner was doing till he belatedly sent him back. The throw was relayed to the bowler and he took out the stumps from a yard away with Sohail well short 215/3
    43.6 Thirimanne scores a direct hit at the non-striker's end from extra cover. Length ball, Sarfaraz had pushed at it but got it a bit high on the bat. Set off for a run, and it needed a direct hit to run him out, which his opposite number nailed. 242/4
    not out
    48.3 the strangulation works. Pakistan weren't getting the ball away, and Imad saw a normal pace delivery and went for it. It was not the easiest to hit, back of a length outside off and his slash ends up as a top edge that loops to deep point, where it's safely held. 278/6
    49.6 yorker to finish, but he goes deep in his crease and flicks to deep midwicket. It's only a two, but they try for the third and the throw is accurate so Wahab is run out at the non-striker's end 305/7

    6.1 chipped straight to mid-on! Masterful from Amir. An offcutter, 118kph, floated right up outside off for the cover drive. He takes it on with the drive. His foot has gone nowhere and he's overbalanced into the off side and lifted a friendly one out for Imad 22/2
    3.6 tonks leg stump! Pace has gone up progressively the last three balls. This one is 141kph. It has got the inside edge as he looks to drive this length ball from middle without a big stride. A sweet sound as ball strikes stump. There was a slight movement in, and he just got in a terrible position to drive, with front foot locked across the stumps and the head way in the off side 18/1
    7.3 chipped to mid-off! Oh boy, this is all too tame from Sri Lanka. Full ball outside off. Wants to drive through the off side but his foot is rooted to the crease. It's there for the drive too, but his lack of movement and his head hanging back make this a lazy shot. And it's come off the toe-end as a result and it's yet another harmless chip 22/3
    10.1 looks plumb on first look. Oshada has reviewed it. Lenth ball curves in from off stump. He plays the original line outside off and the ball sneaks past the inside edge in the end he's just swishing aimlessly in front of his body. There's no inside edge. And there's no chance. Hits him in front of middle, it's going on to comfortably take leg stump as well. That's the review gone. That's Oshada gone. There's not much that isn't gone at the moment for the visitors 28/5
    7.6 is there an edge? Yes there is! But they're checking if the ball carried to Sarfaraz. Soft signal is out. Short of a length and slanted in from outside off. Looks to cut well away from his body but that comes in and he gets an under-edge on it...that looks good on carrying through to Sarfaraz. Not even a close call in the end. Captain catches captain, Sri Lanka's score reflects their woeful shot selection this evening 22/4
    40.5 got him? Yes! A faint edge! It's not to be for Shehan Jayasuriya. He's looking at the heavens in despair. What a knock. Just not enough to best Pakistan's best bowler on the night. Length all angled into the corridor. Opens the face and wants to run this down to third man but gets a faint edge that carries to the keeper. A standing ovation as he goes off. He's doubled his ODI tally today with his first fifty. Won't forget this for a long time 205/6
    41.1 finds deep midwicket! In three balls, a potential miracle has been seriously dented. That's a terrible delivery if you ask anyone, including the bowler himself. Very short on off stump. Backs away and looks to pull this over the midwicket boundary. It comes off the toe-end and Fakhar runs in, lunges and slides with grace as he holds on to this. Shanaka kept the scoring rate ticking early on and barely did anything wrong this evening. But he won't be there at the end for Sri Lanka either 205/7
    46.5 taken at deep midwicket. And that is the end. Full ball outside off, there for one of his favoured inside-out lofted drives, but he chooses to go slog sweep. He's got no room to execute it after shuffling into the off side. Ends up slicing it for Ifthikar who runs in some ten yards and holds on easily 238/10
    42.5 five-for! His second five-wicket haul in ODIs. Lobs up a slower ball outside off, on a good length. He backs away and swings for it. Gets an outside edge that balloons up for the keeper 211/8
    45.6 and he's bluffed him comprehensively! Oh Wahab, why'd you do that to the poor No. 10. Bowls it short of a length. Kumara is fending for a bouncer because of that field change. He's trapped right in front of the stumps, on the knee flap, as this slides on from the surface. They don't have any reviews left, but Kumara doesn't look too livid about this so we could assume there's no bat on it 232/9
