Mohammad Amir1005325.30363020
31.2 to AD Mathews, first wicket of the tournament for Amir and what a big scalp this is. Skiddy length ball angling across Mathews, who looks to hop back and whip this to midwicket. Was late on the shot as the ball deflected off a thin inside edge onto the stumps. 161/4
33.1 to N Dickwella, sensational catch from Sarfraz! He was moving to his left and had to suddenly change direction as Dickwella got a thick inside edge. It flew low to Sarfraz who put his left glove low to his left to pull off a stunner. Hadn't taken a wicket in the tournament coming into today's game, now he has two in two and two big wickets. That of the two set batsmen. Sri Lanka are on a freefall here. 162/6
Junaid Khan1034034.00416020
5.1 to MD Gunathilaka, chipped straight to Malik at mid-off. Looked to hit on the up but this wasn't there, he went through irrespective. No timing whatsoever. Boost for Pakistan just as Gunathilaka was starting to look dangerous. 26/1
32.3 to DM de Silva, this is a ripper of a delivery! Dhananjaya's vigil didn't even last as long as it did for him to hop onto the plane after boarding was announced. Angles a length delivery that nips away off the seam. Dhananjaya, who should have been pushing forward, makes the cardinal sin of defending from the crease as the ball kisses the shoulder of the bat and through to Sarfraz. Big moment in the game. 162/5
34.6 to NLTC Perera, they're swinging Sri Lanka out of the competition or what? This is some stunning bowling. Floats this ahead of length on off, the ball deviates ever-so-slightly as Thisara looks to flay this away from the body, gets a thick edge that is taken superbly in front of his face by Babar at a wide first slip.. 167/7
Imad Wasim813304.12252000
Faheem Ashraf6.203725.84151021
15.1 to LD Chandimal, dragged on! Maiden ODI wicket for Ashraf. Full outside off, no feet movement whatsoever as he looks to slap that through cover. Went hard at it, could only find a thick inside edge back onto the stumps. How the game has turned.. 83/3
49.2 to N Pradeep, squared up by the length. Looks to work this skiddy short of length delivery from outside off towards midwicket but ends up getting a leading edge back to the bowler. As far as return catches go, it can't get simpler than that.. 236/10
Hasan Ali1004334.30314010
14.5 to BKG Mendis, through his defence. Special ball. Mendis was looking threatening and it has taken a special delivery to send him back. Angles a length ball on middle from wide of the crease, Mendis is looking to whip this leg side but the ball jags away late to beat the bat and hit top of off. He lets out a roar. Big wicket. 82/2
44.3 to RAS Lakmal, completely deceived by the slower delivery. The offcutter this time at length, Lakmal was through with the hoick even before the ball got to him, missed it completely as a result with the ball kissing the bails. Handy knock nevertheless.. 213/8
48.1 to DAS Gunaratne, hoicked straight to the man at deep midwicket. It was a risky proposition because he had to clear the longer boundary, his task was made tougher by the fact that it was an slow offcutter. Couldn't have picked out the fielder any better.. 232/9

Lasith Malinga9.525215.28345140
24.5 to Shoaib Malik, feathered to the keeper! Malinga wins the battle. Sees all the shuffling, changes his length and cramps him. It's a short ball at his ribs. He's inside the line and looks to parry this fine with a pull, but he gets in on the glove and Dickwella has moved nicely to his left to hold on. 131/5
Suranga Lakmal1004814.80356020
19.2 to Azhar Ali, and this is why Mathews is a captain! Lakmal gets Azhar to fend away from his body. It's a thick edge that's angling away from Mendis at first slip. He's following the line, to his right, but it swerves to his left and he has done very well to hold on to this. He went with two hands, but because of that movement, he just about grabbed onto it with his left. Bowling change works straight away. 110/4
Nuwan Pradeep1006036.00305130
11.2 to Fakhar Zaman, finds the fielder at fine leg. Takes on the bouncer and is not in control. Takes his eye off the ball at the last moment and top edges this. Pradeep is anxious as this is hanging in the air, then relieved when the fielder hangs on. Is this their way back?. 74/1
15.4 to Babar Azam, picks out midwicket! Tentative from Babar. This is back of a length, and he has time to whip it. Plays close to his body and doesn't roll the wrists enough. Straight to midwicket, he didn't have to move. Soft dismissal. 92/2
25.4 to Imad Wasim, edge? Yes! He changes his angle, goes over the wicket and angles this across the left-hander who plays a loose shot. Pokes away from the body, regulation edge, regulation catch, six down.. 137/6
Thisara Perera804315.37272140
16.5 to Mohammad Hafeez, we have a game on, folks! Another very, very soft dismissal. Back of a length, into the hips. An easy tickle to fine leg on most days, but Hafeez is also tentative like Babar was. Leading edge balloons to mid-on who makes no mistake. 95/3
