Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Fakhar Zaman, 4.2 ov), 2-73 (Babar Azam, 15.6 ov), 3-100 (Abdullah Shafique, 21.4 ov), 4-108 (Mohammad Haris, 23.6 ov), 5-130 (Mohammad Nawaz, 27.4 ov), 6-238 (Iftikhar Ahmed, 40.3 ov), 7-243 (Shadab Khan, 41.2 ov) • DRS
4.2 to Fakhar Zaman, Beauty from Madushan gets Fakhar! Full and swinging in late, Fakhar goes for the drive but this tails in right through the gate and crashes into the base of the stumps.. 9/1
41.2 to Shadab Khan, Edged and a stunning catch from Mendis leaping to his right! Fuller outside off. Shadab has a massive swing at it, gets a thick edge bit Mendis times his leap to perfection. Grabs the ball and most importantly hangs on when coming down.. 243/7
27.4 to Mohammad Nawaz, Fantastically mapped out from Theekshana! He moved around the wicket to the left hander with just this delivery in mind. The last one was a littler wide. But this angled in on off on a good length and straightened just enough. Nawaz went back but failed to negotiate the turn, poking at this, as it went past the edge and crashed into off stump. 130/5
15.6 to Babar Azam, Is Babar stumped here? Sri Lanka are very confident they have their man. And they are right. What a stunning delivery this. Very similar to the first ball of the over. Wellalage tosses it up around off stump. Babar reckons this one is coming in as he strides forward. But the ball pitches and turns away and Mendis flicks off the bails in a jiffy. Babar's back foot was in the air when the bails lit up. Wellalage, what a bowler!. 73/2
21.4 to Abdullah Shafique, Pathirana strikes! And it's the set man! This was dug in short on off, Shafique goes for the pull but only manages to top edge straight to the man at deep square leg, who was in place for just such a stroke. This will have to go down as a bit of a gift. 100/3
23.6 to Mohammad Haris, Taken on the return! The Pathirana resurgence continues. This was slightly pace-off, and it catches Haris early on the drive off a good length. It's chipped back quickly around hip high and Pathirana holds on with two hands in his follow through. 108/4
40.3 to Iftikhar Ahmed, Toe-ender that spoons straight to mid-off! Change of pace does the job for Pathirana. Slower length ball outside off. Iftikhar fails to pick it and is way too early into his shot. Looks to clear mid-off but the ball catches the cue end of his bat straight to Shanaka. Ends a top innings.. 238/6

Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Kusal Perera, 3.2 ov), 2-77 (Pathum Nissanka, 13.2 ov), 3-177 (Sadeera Samarawickrama, 29.4 ov), 4-210 (Kusal Mendis, 35.1 ov), 5-222 (Dasun Shanaka, 37.4 ov), 6-243 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 40.4 ov), 7-243 (Dunith Wellalage, 40.5 ov), 8-246 (Pramod Madushan, 41.4 ov) • DRS
40.4 to DM de Silva, Knee-high full toss has been spanked straight down long-on's throat. Dhananjaya! The umpires are checking for the height, but that is fine. It was right there to be hit anywhere. DDS does not get the full swing of the bat going his way. Waseem keeps his composure and hangs on reverse-cupped.. 243/6
40.5 to DN Wellalage, SHAHEEN YOU BEAUTY! He's been off colour today isn't he? But that's what champions do. Stand up tall when the team needs them. That was a length ball tailing just a touch away from Wellalage. He goes for an almighty hoick only to get a thick edge through to Rizwan.. 243/7
13.2 to P Nissanka, Caught and bowled and isn't Shadab pumped! Such an important wicket this. Lovely flight on the length ball on middle. Nissanka jumps down the track looking to go straight over the bowler's head. However, he ends up getting too close of the ball. The bat turns in his hand and he mistimes it back to the right of the bowler, who makes no mistake.. 77/2
29.4 to S Samarawickrama, Partnership broken! Sadeera comes down the track, but this one doesn't turn and goes past the edge. Easy stumping. Is this the opening Pakistan needed?. 177/3
35.1 to BKG Mendis, Leading catch and Haris has plucked off a stunning catch diving forward. Or has he? Mendis is not going anywhere, with the umpires going up to the third umpire have a check. Iftikhar floats the length ball on middle stump and gets the ball to stick on the surface. Mendis was looking to clip it to the on-side but he closed the bat face a bit too early. The leading edge carries to Haris who leaps forward from extra cover and plucks a good catch inches of the ground. For the second time in this Asia Cup, Mendis has fallen in the nineties.. 210/4
37.4 to MD Shanaka, Has he picked out long-on? Has the fielder caught it? Yes to both. Length ball away from Shanaka's arc. He was looking to go over the fielder's head, but gets it off the bottom half of the blade straight to long-on who dives forward and completes a lovely catch. Nawaz was the fielder. Is there a twist?. 222/5
