Zahid Shah1014934.90315000
0.6 to KC Sangakkara, Hero, one day and zero, the next as Sangakkara, visibly tired by yesterdays effort shows some lax footwork and pays the price for it as he is plumb in front. This was the shot in the arm that the bowler's were looking for. 0/1
33.5 to T Thushara, Zahid does it for his captain as he manages to induce the edge from Thushara's bat. The keeper, who has been good throughout the day pouches it and sends him back on his way. Saqib's bowling changes are working like a dream today. 209/7
49.5 to KMDN Kulasekara, slower delivery gets him as he fails to connect the shot and the ball ends up in safe hands of Khurram Khan at deep midwicket. 286/9
Fahad Alhashmi503927.80133060
27.3 to ML Udawatte, soft dismissal! That was overpitched on middle and he made a bit of room to carve that across the line and over on the on side, the elevation was missing and Tauqir had a very easy take at midwicket. 180/5
29.5 to TM Dilshan, fuller in length outside the off stump, Dilshan goes for an extravagant drive through the covers but gets an outside edge back to the keeper. Alhashmi, has two wickets in two overs now and is rapturous now. 189/6
Aman Ali2022011.0043020
Saqib Ali704416.28143010
45.2 to K Weeraratne, finally they have their man as Weeraratne chips it to long off where the catch is taken easily. 262/8
Mohammad Tauqir1004724.70294010
16.5 to CK Kapugedera, Kapugedera has an initial stride down the track and Tauqir notices it as he slips a faster one in on the off stump line, Kapugedera has to have a prod at it and is caught by the keeper. 131/3
18.6 to LPC Silva, short outside the off stump, Silva goes onto the backfoot and looks to cut it away in the gap but gets a leading edge to short third man and has to go back disappointed. 142/4
