Lasith Malinga1005655.60256000
0.6 to Sharjeel Khan, the bowler has the last laugh! This was full and swinging in on middle and leg, Sharjeel has flicked it into the safe hands of mid-on! Two sumptuous strokes on the off side and he's thrown it away. If he was going to hit that straight, he should have kept it down or he should have nudged it through midwicket for a harmless single. But his own momentum has swallowed him.. 8/1
2.6 to Ahmed Shehzad, another one, Malinga does it again! Punches the air and lets out a war cry that will ring throughout MIrpur. Shehzad saw a bit of width and was setting up for that back-foot punch in front of point. Struck a crisp boundary in the last over off that shot, but this time he only ends up nicking off. Touch of seam away does him in as he doesn't move his feet. 17/2
4.3 to Mohammad Hafeez, Malinga is taking this final by the scruff of it's neck! Another catch to Sanga and Pakistan are three down in the fifth over! Good length ball, with a bit of movement away and it proves enough to snare a regulation outside edge. Hafeez has hung his bat out there with no feet and perishes. Squared him up.. 18/3
36.4 to Misbah-ul-Haq, he's holed out at long-on and Malinga is at it again! It wasn't the prettiest ball, just full and outside off. Misbah heaves it straight over the top but has dragged this. That foils his timing and results in a simple catch to Kusal who extends his arms in delight. Somewhere in front of him, Misbah is immensely disappointed.. 140/4
49.4 to Umar Akmal, slower ball outside leg, Akmal slogs to present a leading edge which is held by backward point. That's Malinga's fifth wicket. Excellent change up, he knew Akmal was looking for those leg side heaves and outsmarted him. 255/5

Junaid Khan905616.22256100
41.4 to SMA Priyanjan, nicks off as he looks to guide it down to third man. That's Junaid first wicket of the tournament. Good length ball just a shade outside off. Terrible shot considering there was slip in place as well. Regulation edge and a diving take to his right ends his stay at the middle.. 233/4
Saeed Ajmal1022632.60473030
10.1 to MDKJ Perera, he's completely duped him! Ajmal, you beauty! Kusal was racing down the track but Ajmal pulls his length back and gets this to jag away. Beats his defensive push and the keeper completes a simple stumping. Ajmal leaps up in celebration, he enjoyed that. And I bet Sharjeel did too. 56/1
10.2 to KC Sangakkara, leg before first ball! Ajmal is doing a Malinga! The crowd is buzzing as Sanga plays outside the line of a doosra! Defends around his front pad and gets struck in line with middle. Would have gone on to hit leg and Sanga has to walk. 56/2
44.1 to HDRL Thirimanne, doosra goes through his defences! In his final over he produces a beauty! Lahiru was on the front foot looking to defend, but offers a big gap between bat and pad. Beats the poking bat, strikes the pad on the knee roll and crashes into the stumps. 247/5
Mohammad Talha6.205618.84139001
37.2 to DPMD Jayawardene, straight up in the air and Sharjeel just about takes it at cover. That's the end of Mahela. Fullish delivery on off stump and he goes for a swipe across the line. Not quite the shot you expect from a player so experienced with a chase to shepherd. The fielder gingerly settled under it, or so he thought, and had to dive forward to take it cleanly. Tough catches that under the night sky. 212/3
