Fall of wickets: 1-22 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 5.2 ov), 2-84 (Pathum Nissanka, 18.1 ov), 3-134 (Kusal Mendis, 27.4 ov), 4-139 (Sadeera Samarawickrama, 29.1 ov), 5-167 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 35.6 ov), 6-180 (Charith Asalanka, 38.5 ov), 7-185 (Dushmantha Chameera, 39.6 ov), 8-230 (Maheesh Theekshana, 46.6 ov), 9-239 (Angelo Mathews, 48.3 ov), 10-241 (Kasun Rajitha, 49.3 ov) • DRS
27.4 to BKG Mendis, And the pressure has told! Mendis holes out at deep midwicket! The player had just been put out in the deep and Mendis picks him out with the slog sweep --- the fourth time in four games he's gotten out playing his favourite shot. 134/3
29.1 to S Samarawickrama, Huuuuge wicket! It's that man Samarawickrama! Mujeeb hares down the track in celebration and why shouldn't he be chuffed. This one drifted in sharply and rapped Sadeera plumb in front of middle stump as he went back to this length ball. Asalanka convinces Sadeera to review but this is very much in hope. There's three reds and Sri Lanka are well in the mire now. 139/4
5.2 to FDM Karunaratne, Farooqi gets the early breakthrough! Huge appeal for lbw, as this darts in on Karunaratne's pads! Umpire says no but Afghanistan go for the review with the clock ticking down. This one angled in full and struck the front pad, before deflecting past the keeper for four! No matter as this is crashing into leg stump! Great review. 22/1
38.5 to KIC Asalanka, Fazal has the last laugh! Slams it on a good length around the line off, doesn't bounce much and it takes the cue end of the bat, Rashid Khan at mid-off takes a regulation catch and another set batter has to go back in the hut. That's an important wicket for Afghanistan because he is a dangerous customer. Everything working to plan for Afghanistan while Sri Lanka find themselves in a rut. 180/6
46.6 to M Theekshana, And just when I praised the batters, Fazalhaq Farooqi spears in a stunning yorker from round the wicket that crashed into the middle stump and the zingers are alight. That's how you bowl at the death! Getting it right in the blockhole and under the bat and smashing into middle stump. Theekshana goes after a valuable contribution! Incredible spell from Fazal and he still has one over left. 230/8
48.3 to AD Mathews, Has he got all of it? No, he hasn't! Nabi takes an absolute sprawling catch at long-on, he was millimetres inside the boundary rope and did well to keep his balance and made sure he doesn't make contact with the rope. A slower one on middle, he was through the shot a touch early, hasn't timed it as well as he would have liked. It went high into the sky but just didn't get enough distance. Nabi tracked it superbly from the bat, through the air, towards him and then into his safe hands. 239/9
18.1 to P Nissanka, Geez! That was an incredible delivery pitched on an awkward back of a length zone and it nips back, he is pegged back and is in a tangle, feathers it through to Gurbaz who gobbles it up gleefully! That's a devilish ball and he gets his man! A crucial breakthrough that will help stem the run flow. It rose sharply and he tries to nurdle it down to backward point but was not on top of the bounce while fiddling with it quite away from his body. Nissanka wanted a review but he ran out of time, there's a clear deflection on the ultra-edge so would have burned it anyway. 84/2
35.6 to DM de Silva, Pinpoint accurate wrong'un does the trick! It's a peach of a delivery. Skidding on and goes through the gate, pings the top of middle stump and he has to take the long walk back into the pavilion. Arms aloft as Rashid wheels off in jubilation. This is sensational bowling! de Silva is disconsolate after perishing early in the piece; once again the momentum is stymied after some rebuilding. Afghanistan find a wicket just at the right time. Huge breakthrough!. 167/5

0.4 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Perfect start for Sri Lanka! Outstanding from Madushanka! Inswinger that starts of on middle and off and tails in to graze the front pad before crashing into middle stump. Too good for Gurbaz, who plays all around it. 0/1
16.5 to Ibrahim Zadran, Gottim! Bouncer dug in and it's growing on him alarmingly, Karunaratne at deep third man pouches it safely in his big bucket hands and this is exactly what the doctor prescribed for Sri Lanka; they have reaped the reward for some good disciplined channel bowling and Afghanistan lose a wicket while trying to play a jailbreak shot, played an upper cut but didn't get the requisite power behind the shot, man was stationed exactly for this miscued shot. Madushanka gets the big fish and he leaps in delight.. 73/2
27.6 to Rahmat Shah, But Sadeera is reprieved as Rajitha gets Shah the very next ball! This is the cross seamer, good length on the pads. It holds up just enough though for Shah to close the face early looking to work it onside. Ends up getting a leading edge that pops up gently to mid-on. 131/3
