Saeed Ajmal403318.2585010
18 to BMAJ Mendis, stumped, stumped off a wide, Mendis comes down the track and that was bowled wide, it spun away further and he failed to reach it, Akmal did the rest. 118/4
Shahid Afridi402817.00104000
10.2 to DPMD Jayawardene, the scoop didn't work this time, moved across this time to get it over short fine but it appeared to come off the bottom of the hand and went straight to that fielder, Raza Hasan. 63/1
Mohammad Hafeez201216.0051010
12.5 to KC Sangakkara, he's holed out, well taken by Malik at long-on, didn't connect well there, he'd made up his mind, came down the track and Hafeez bowled it slightly wide of off, Sanga had to reach it as he tried to drag it over the bowler's head, found long-on, didn't get the distance, Malik moved a little to his right to grab that but it was a pressure catch of sorts, Sanga was going well. 84/2
Umar Gul302618.6673011
17.5 to TM Dilshan, Dilshan goes! Almost yorker length and he failed to get it away towards midwicket as he was trying to do, seemed to strike him in line with leg stump and Taufel gave it out. 117/3

Angelo Mathews402726.7583000
9.1 to Nasir Jamshed, the bowling change works! Mathews bowls the slower ball, the off cutter, Jamshed is trapped at the crease and he half heartedly tries to tuck it away, the umpire Tucker reckoned that was hitting the off stump. But hang on - replays showed the ball pitching outside leg! Well. 55/2
9.4 to Kamran Akmal, no doubts about the credibility of this dismissal! Soft dismissal, looked like the slower ball again, Akmal tried to chip it over the in field and it tamely lobbed up to Mahela at short midwicket, he was too early on the shot. 57/3
Nuwan Kulasekara301505.00112020
Lasith Malinga401904.75161030
Ajantha Mendis402726.75113000
5.6 to Imran Nazir, it rolls back to the stumps! Nazir was forward to defend and the ball edged to his pads and rolled over to hit the off and middle stumps. 31/1
17.4 to Sohail Tanvir, we have yet another stumping! The off break this time, pitched it shorter on seeing the batsman give the charge, easy stumping. 113/7
Thisara Perera10808.0021000
Rangana Herath402536.25111100
10.6 to Shoaib Malik, Malik was well and truly squared up! Full credit to Herath here, it turned from off and middle and completely beat Malik on the drive, pegged back the off stump and the Sri Lankans are thrilled. 64/4
14.1 to Mohammad Hafeez, and he's stumped! Tossed up and he was down the track and the ball kept a bit low and Sanga whipped off the bails. 91/5
14.2 to Shahid Afridi, And it's yet another golden duck for Afridi! He didn't read the carom ball at all! He stayed at the crease and tamely chopped it onto his stumps, this comes in the 16th anniversary of his fastest century, off 37 balls. 91/6
