Imad Wasim402305.75122010
Usman Shinwari201809.0064000
Hasan Ali403127.7583100
17.5 to NLTC Perera, shortish, not short enough for the pull, and he hits from down to up, high in the air, and Nawaz, running to his left from mid-on and back towards the boundary, takes a superb running, diving catch. Two excellent interventions in the field in this over - what more can you ask for from your sub?. 111/5
19.3 to SS Pathirana, full on middle stump, Pathirana slogs, and all he can do is hit it high and then down the throat of long-on. 119/9
Faheem Ashraf301635.3371000
18.4 to I Udana, slower bouncer angling into the batsman, and that's another excellent bit of fielding. Swivels into a pull, but the lack of pace means he can't really get power into it. Hasan, at short fine leg, still had some work to do to catch this: he had to jump in the air, to his left, and stretch out to grab it with both hands. Timed his jump perfectly. 117/6
18.5 to ML Udawatte, wide-ish, shortish, he goes for the uppercut, and all he can do is pick out Babar Azam on the point boundary. It isn't an easy catch by any means. He sprints hard to his right, and is still on the run when he completes his catch. Sri Lanka have lost six wickets in 17 balls, while scoring 11 runs. What a meltdown.. 117/7
18.6 to MD Shanaka, back of a length, angling into middle stump, and that's a hat-trick for Faheem Ashraf! Keeps a little bit low, and Shanaka, looking to pull, plays well over the top of the bounce. Hit on the upraised front pad, in front of middle, and that kept low enough to make this the easiest of on-field lbw decisions to give. Though ball-tracking says umpire's call on height.. 117/8
Shadab Khan401413.50110000
16.5 to MD Gunathilaka, gone! The low full-toss gets him the wicket. It was the pace, though, that did it. A quicker ball, at 116kph, slanting away from off stump. He bowled that because he saw Gunathilaka shaping to reverse-sweep. Denied him time to pick his spot, and all he can do is scoop it straight to short third man. Slomo shows he bowled that seam-up. Nice variation. 107/3

Vikum Sanjaya3.503218.3471110
19.1 to Faheem Ashraf, caught at long-on! What scenes!. A superb yorker, tailing in late to the left-hander, is whipped powerfully. But even with all that power, it doesn't carry the distance and that's only because Sanjaya puts the ball so full that Ashraf simply cannot get under it. 113/8
Dilshan Munaweera201708.5032010
Isuru Udana401714.25111000
4.1 to Babar Azam, gives him lbw! Udana is the man with the golden arm, whether it is throwing from the deep, or bowling it to one of Pakistan's best batsmen. This is a fuller delivery, pitching on off stump, and starting to shape back into Babar. The right-hander flicks across the line, and doesn't connect with the ball. Huge appeal comes, and the umpire Shahab cedes to it. HawkEye says it would be missing off stump by several inches.. 31/2
Sachith Pathirana401814.50100020
15.6 to Mohammad Hafeez, down to the captain at long-on and he takes it cleanly! Hafeez looks for the boundary, going for the lofted shot down the ground. Doesn't have enough power in it and Pathirana provides the wicket Sri Lanka have been desperate for. 94/5
Thisara Perera402436.0091010
8.4 to Ahmed Shehzad, excellent take, Shanaka! Pulled off a superb save earlier in the over to keep Shehzad on strike, now completes the catch that sends him back. Another pull shot from the batsman, aiming to clear the infield. But Shanaka leaps high, sticks both hands over his head and comes down with the little white thing firmly in his grasp.. 50/3
10.1 to Shoaib Malik, he's got two in two overs! And it's a big one. Malik was the man who ushered the chase through on Thursday. Twenty-four hours later, trying to play a shot that provided him such great dividends - the glide to third man - he's caught behind. 55/4
17.1 to Imad Wasim, traps him lbw! Awful shot from Imad - he's trying to sweep a proper yorker and as a result, the ball has a free path to slam into his boot before the bat is anywhere near it. Perfectly in line with middle stump.. 100/6
