Imad Wasim402616.5062000
0.3 to EMDY Munaweera, cleaned him up. Munaweera goes for an expansive drive, plays with a big gap between bat and pad. The ball drifts back in to sneak through the gap and hit top of middle. Dipped on him just a touch as well. Poor start again for Sri Lanka.. 1/1
Usman Shinwari402025.00122000
3.4 to MD Gunathilaka, looked to swing this into Sheikh Zayed Road, could only manage a thin nick through to Sarfraz. Once again backed away a long way to go downtown, head looking away as he tried to expend every ounce of energy in hitting that, gentle nick. Shinwari is pumped.. 29/2
15.5 to NLTC Perera, this is simply sensational from Usman. He knows Thisara is winding up to pull so bangs in a short ball on middle, he still looks to muscle it despite being cramped but can only get a top-edge. Sarfraz spots it, calls for it loud and clear as he runs to his right. The swirler comes down, all the fielders are clear of the captain, most probably for the fear of being yelled at by the skipper, but Sarfraz gleefully accepts it and gives his mates a hug. Thisara was completely done in by that short ball.. 85/8
Hasan Ali3.302336.57112110
12.3 to SS Pathirana, this time, he really catches one and Hasan can't believe how easily he's got this wicket. Skiddy bouncer which Pathirana looks to pull but is beaten for pace and the ball skews off the top part of the bat to Hasan, who gleefully accepts it. 68/7
16.1 to I Udana, the length ball nips back in to scoot under the bottom edge and flatten off stump. Udana had no clue about that in-dipper. Played as if he was protecting his life. 87/9
18.3 to JRMVB Sanjaya, deceived by the slower one, looked to clear mid-off but checked his shot as the ball gripped on the surface and he ended up scooping this straight to extra cover. These are Hasan Ali's best T20I figures . 102/10
Faheem Ashraf20613.0060000
8.2 to S Samarawickrama, sensational delivery! Samarawickrama plays outside the line of this length ball that nips back in to beat the inside edge and flatten the leg stump. In no position to force that on the up.. 51/3
Shadab Khan301414.6671000
10.1 to SMA Priyanjan, looks to play a cute little reverse sweep, all he manages to do it hit it with the spin to short third man. A metre on either side and it would've been four. Pressure was building on him, the struggle was on to hit down the ground, so he tried to hit behind square. Couldn't do that either. Sri Lanka slide further.. 58/4
Mohammad Hafeez211025.0090100
11.1 to ML Udawatte, strikes with his first ball. Drifts in from around the stumps, grips the surface and spins away to hit him on middle and off. Udawatte is deceived by the slowness of the delivery, looks to turn this across but played too early and missed it completely. The bat got stuck around the side of the pad as he looked to turn this away. 66/5
11.4 to MD Shanaka, classic offspinner's dismissal. Draws him out of the crease in flight, Shanaka plays a nothing shot and simply looks to ease it to the off side having stepped out. The ball holds its line and Sarfraz whips the bails off in a jiffy.. 66/6

Vikum Sanjaya402025.00111010
2.3 to Fakhar Zaman, looking to hit everything too hard. And Zaman's gone. A fistpump from Sanjaya. A full delivery swinging in, Zaman comes charging at the bowler, looking to hit the ball through the off side, but he yorked himself instead. The ball swings in between bat and pad and knocks back leg stump. First strike, fight SL, fight.. 10/1
11.3 to Ahmed Shehzad, given by the umpire. And Shehzad walks off. He has been strangled down the leg side. Full down leg, Shehzad gets a bit of bat on his flick, the keeper dives low to his left and takes a good catch. The umpire noticed that the bat was away from the pad, and there was a noise, so relatively easy decision.. 64/3
Dilshan Munaweera10505.0010000
Sachith Pathirana402516.25101010
5.1 to Babar Azam, Sri Lanka are in raptures. And they should be. Pathirana has done Azam in with a lovely display of flight and loop. Tosses this one up outside off, Azam sees that flight and wants to go over cover, but doesn't account for turn, which there is. The ball rips past the outside edge and the wicketkeeper quickly takes off the bails in one motion. That's a proper, proper wicket, the man in form too. 18/2
