    1.1 short, cut and caught! Samaraweera looked a tad edgy and gave himself some room to cut it over the in-field, but does not get sufficient elevation there, caught easily in the covers 1/1
    4.3 gone, stumped this time! This was outside the off, he went down the track again, but the ball wasn't there to hit and he did not get close to getting a bat, misses it and the bails are whipped by the keeper 26/2
    9.3 gone, undone by the off-spin, stumped! The batsman gave his hand away too soon, came down the pitch before Mendis had released the ball and he shortened the length, spun it away and the batsman missed, the keeper did not and the bails are whipped away for the second time by Rahim. 58/3
    14.2 gone, snick, caught! It was so short that it should have been sent away packing, but it also meant that Misbah went hard at it and only managed an outside edge, Mushfiqur takes a smart catch and Mendis has his revenge after being hit for those two early boundaries by the same batsman 92/5
    10.5 short, wide and cut in front of cover to get out! Not too often will you such a dismissal, it was short and wide and he has cut it to short-cover, the ball probably did not come on too well and Styris was early in his stroke. I smell trouble for the batting side. 61/4
    19.1 that was another across the line swipe attempted but this time he does not get the direction he needed, gets more of a leading edge and it goes really high, spoons up in the air for the long-off fielder to pouch it safely 149/6
    not out
    19.3 slower and timber! It was on the middle stump and an off-cutter, he had moved over to the off side and his bat did not come down in the same direction where the ball was headed, bat missed, stumps hit 150/7
    not out
