TOTAL159.2 Ov (RR: 3.02)482
Fall of wickets: 1-63 (Kaushal Silva, 22.5 ov), 2-131 (Sadeera Samarawickrama, 36.1 ov), 3-136 (Kusal Mendis, 37.1 ov), 4-282 (Dinesh Chandimal, 101.4 ov), 5-370 (Niroshan Dickwella, 119.1 ov), 6-429 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 133.6 ov), 7-454 (Dilruwan Perera, 141.6 ov), 8-469 (Suranga Lakmal, 152.6 ov), 9-474 (Lahiru Gamage, 155.6 ov), 10-482 (Nuwan Pradeep, 159.2 ov)
36.1 to S Samarawickrama, and gets the wicket straight away. On a length, around off, from Amir, angling it across the right-hander. It may have been the offcutter. Generates some extra bounce too. Samarawickrama is committed to dragging a flick into the leg side, without ably accounting for that bounce and angle. All he can manage is a chip back to Amir, who dives to his left and takes a sharp catch. 131/2
119.1 to N Dickwella, inside-edged and gone! A full delivery outside off, Dickwella plays outside the line, the ball jags back just enough to take the inside edge. Sarfraz dives to his right and takes a routine catch. Quality innings from Dickwella. 370/5
152.6 to RAS Lakmal, given! Lakmal is trapped in front, but he reviews. Why not? Looked like he fell over to be honest. Fuller than a good length on leg, Lakmal misses a flick and is struck in front of the leg stump. No bat, but is it sliding down? That has to be the only factor that can save Lakmal. No bat, according to UltraEdge. Three reds says HawkEye, good on-field call from umpire Kettleborough. 469/8
133.6 to FDM Karunaratne, tiredness or the frustration of not being able to score easily? Whatever it is, Karunaratne will have to wait for his maiden Test double. Wahab deceives him with change in pace. This is a knuckle ball that hits the deck and bounces little more than Dimuth expects. He played down the wrong line, got thick inside edge onto the body before the ball deflected onto the stumps. He can't believe what he's just done.. 429/6
22.5 to JK Silva, slow turn has done the trick. It's a nothing delivery from Yasir, who is pleasantly surprised at having a wicket. Oh, Kaushal. What have you done? This was a half-tracker. But the ball spun away really late. Kaushal was through with the pull by the time the ball arrived. As he swing through, the ball took the under-edge with Sarfraz, who stayed low, taking a good catch. Relief for Pakistan.. 63/1
37.1 to BKG Mendis, another wicket. Pakistan right back in this. An awful shot from Mendis, but very clever captaincy from Sarfraz. He kept mid-off slightly deep for Mendis, but kept mid-on up. Mendis decided early he wanted to attack Yasir, and straight was his option. Seeing mid-on up, he wanted to take Yasir against the spin, which was fraught with risk. The full legbreak rips, takes the edge and settles in slip's hands. Sensational plan and execution, but Mendis fell right into the trap. 136/3
101.4 to LD Chandimal, doesn't offer a stroke and he's gone! Yasir strikes. It was the previous delivery that did Chandimal in, the previous one ripped and turned prodigiously, this one didn't, both were legbreaks. But the doubt of how much turn is there in the pitch forced Chandimal to offer no stroke. This one drifted on, hit Chandimal in front of off and up went the finger. No review. Missing the stumps, says HawkEye, Sri Lanka had two reviews available.. 282/4
141.6 to MDK Perera, bowled him round his legs. This was nicely tossed up, gave it plenty of rip. Dilruwan looked to work wide of midwicket but didn't get that frontfoot forward. Played too early and missed as the ball pitched on the rough and spun away to hit leg stump.. 454/7
155.6 to PLS Gamage, that's five for Yasir. Another one in his pocket. Tosses this one up nicely outside off and the No. 10 just can't help himself, skips out but Yasir cleverly bowls this wide outside off, it beats the bat but Gamage has the chance to rush back because Sarfraz had a long way to go to the stumps. But he did so in time, as Gamage's bat was in the air as the bails were whipped off. A sajda from Yasir, well bowled.. 474/9
159.2 to N Pradeep, edged and gone. All over for Sri Lanka, six for Yasir. Generous loop and flight on off, full, Pradeep tries to play the line but the ball spins and takes the outside edge, gully is well-positioned and he gobbles it up.. 482/10

TOTAL90.3 Ov (RR: 2.89)262
Fall of wickets: 1-61 (Shan Masood, 23.3 ov), 2-65 (Sami Aslam, 24.2 ov), 3-92 (Asad Shafiq, 37.2 ov), 4-109 (Babar Azam, 44.1 ov), 5-180 (Azhar Ali, 71.3 ov), 6-199 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 76.1 ov), 7-214 (Mohammad Amir, 79.6 ov), 8-220 (Haris Sohail, 82.1 ov), 9-250 (Wahab Riaz, 89.2 ov), 10-262 (Yasir Shah, 90.3 ov)
37.2 to Asad Shafiq, taken! Wonderful bowling from Lakmal. The umpires just want to check if it has carried, but Shafiq is walking off. That's the ball of the Test. All these previous deliveries, he has been getting the ball to come back in, this one is also shaping back in, but it pitches and swerves away juuuuuuust enough. Shafiq is already on the front foot, trying to defend, the ball takes the outside edge and carries low to Mendis in front of him. The umpires don't check and Shafiq is off. 92/3
90.3 to Yasir Shah, cleaned 'im up this time. A slower ball down leg, Yasir stays low and tries to smash that through square leg but just plain misses. Leg stump is clattered. Pakistan do not avoid the follow-on. 262/10
23.3 to Shan Masood, first Test wicket for Gamage and it's a beauty. Bowled this full on off stump, got it to nip back in off the seam. Masood goes for a loose drive away from the body, but only manages a thin inside edge as the ball crashes into the stumps. He's been plugging away and deserves the reward.. 61/1
89.2 to Wahab Riaz, he's bounced him or has he? Wahab was uncomfortable as this short ball was slipped in towards his rib cage. Wahab, initially looking to take evasive action, is caught by surprise by the speed at it which veers into him. He's on the hop as he tries to avoid this but gets some glove on the way onto the thigh pad as it lobs to short leg. Overturned on review by Sri Lanka. . 250/9
24.2 to Sami Aslam, beaten by one that skids back in. He looks to whip this towards midwicket but the ball pitches on length around off and drifts in to beat the inside edge. As plumb as it can get. Waste of a review. 65/2
76.1 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, has paid the price for being too cheeky. He's always industrious and adventurous, but this time it has fallen flat on its face. Tries to premeditate a sweep to one that spins back in sharply, bounced a bit as well to take the glove and lob to the short leg fielder, who ran back a couple of steps to take it.. 199/6
82.1 to Haris Sohail, the slider has done the trick again. Haris, having done all the hard work, has been consumed by misjudgment in line. Played outside, the ball came back in to sneak past the inside edge and crash into the pad. That would've hit the stumps, so confident was umpire Kettleborough that he raised his finger in no more than two seconds flat.. 220/8
44.1 to Babar Azam, what was that from Azam? That's an awful stroke. I have absolutely no idea why he played that shot. It's an extremely risky shot to attack Herath, but to take him against the spin with a midwicket stationed just for that? Aargh. Flat on off, the ball spins away just a touch. Azam doesn't improvise his stroke, instead goes through with the wrong option of trying to whip the ball through midwicket. Finds midwicket. 109/4
71.3 to Azhar Ali, phew, that's mighty close. And Sri Lanka will definitely review. It;s the slider from Herath, flat outside off, Azhar gets right forward to the pitch, but as the bat is about to meet the ball, the bat hits the pad and then deviates away from its initial course, allowing the ball a clear path to the front pad. Right in front of off. No bat, and three reds says HawkEye. Impact was the only doubt there could be. Azhar's fine innings ends.. 180/5
79.6 to Mohammad Amir, cleverly varies the angle by going a little wide of the crease. Tosses this up nicely, gets the ball to break back in from outside off, Amir pushes forward but is caught by surprise as the ball comes back in a long way to thud into the pad. He played down the wrong line as well. Impact as it turns out is umpire's call. . 214/7

Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Kaushal Silva, 2.1 ov), 2-22 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 8.1 ov), 3-26 (Sadeera Samarawickrama, 10.3 ov), 4-33 (Suranga Lakmal, 13.2 ov), 5-34 (Dinesh Chandimal, 14.3 ov), 6-59 (Niroshan Dickwella, 18.6 ov), 7-60 (Dilruwan Perera, 19.2 ov), 8-95 (Rangana Herath, 25.1 ov), 9-96 (Kusal Mendis, 25.4 ov), 10-96 (Nuwan Pradeep, 25.6 ov)
2.1 to JK Silva, gone this time! An absolute ripper from Abbas. Late swing. Full delivery on off, the ball swerves away late. By this time, Kaushal brings his bat down straight, looking to hit the ball straight but that very late movement takes the outside edge and through to Sarfraz. Unplayable, not much Silva could have done. 3/1
13.2 to RAS Lakmal, 84 kph. Given by umpire Kettleborough. And Lakmal reviews. Was it pad-bat or bat-pad? Did it strike him in line? The googly outside off, spins back in, the ball hits the pad just before hitting the bat as Lakmal gets right forward. "Pad first," says umpire Ravi. Umpire's call on impact, two other reds, and the nightwatchman has to go.. 33/4
19.2 to MDK Perera, the flipper has done the trick. This is stunning. Dilruwan is late on the shot as this one drifts in and skids on. Would've smashed into middle and leg. Clearly late on the shot. He was also expecting to spin away just a touch, going by his initial shuffle to play the ball. But Yasir has too many tricks up his sleeve.. 60/7
8.1 to FDM Karunaratne, played on. Big wicket. Keeps Pakistan in this game. Short and wide, not a great delivery, but he won't care. Karunaratne goes through with a cut but plays over it slightly, gets a thick inside edge which clatters into the stumps. The second time Karunaratne has chopped on this Test. 22/2
10.3 to S Samarawickrama, taken! Pakistan have three in this session. Wahab has Samarawickrama gloving down the leg side. It's short, and quick down leg. Samarawickrama wants to pull but the pace is a bit too quick for him, hurries him into the pull but he can only get a glove on it. Sarfraz moves smartly to his left. 26/3
14.3 to LD Chandimal, another one! Chandimal goes now. 85 mph, Chandimal now with the review. Good length delivery on middle and leg, the ball seams back in but Chandimal is shuffling right across and misses a flick. From around the wicket, that was not going to miss the stumps. Three reds on HawkEye and Sri Lanka in a bit of trouble.. 34/5
18.6 to N Dickwella, this is a sensational catch from Sarfraz! Much needed wicket too. Wahab changes the angle again, floats this full and across from around the stumps, perhaps the absence of slip fielder induces Dickwella into a drive away from the body. Gets a thick edge that flew off the bat. Sarfraz threw himself to his left instinctively and put his left glove out to take that stunner. Relief in the Pakistan camp for things were starting to slip away very quickly despite all the good work they did last night. 59/6
25.1 to HMRKB Herath, gets a wicket first ball. Herath top-edges a sweep straight to short fine leg. Gave away his intention too early, the bowler tossed it up nicely and landed it on the rough. Easy catch. 95/8
25.4 to BKG Mendis, another top-edge and Sri Lanka are nine down now. Lots of flight and loop on middle and leg, which Mendis reads as a scoring opportunity. Gets low, looks to sweep but plays under the ball slightly. A thick top edge lobs up for Sarfraz to take. Sohail has two wickets in four balls.. 96/9
25.6 to N Pradeep, and it's all done and dusted. Did it pitch on leg or just outside? Pradeep wants to review. Looks like it pitched outside leg. It's quick down leg, and spins away. Pradeep is tentative and plays the wrong line. The ball beats the outside edge and strikes Pradeep in front of leg. No bat. Replays show the ball is pitching in line, hitting in line and umpire's call on impact. That's the innings done, wow, wow, wow. Sri Lanka are done for 96, their ninth-lowest score in Tests. Sohail has three wickets in the over.. 96/10

Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Sami Aslam, 3.3 ov), 2-36 (Azhar Ali, 23.5 ov), 3-49 (Haris Sohail, 30.1 ov), 4-52 (Shan Masood, 32.3 ov), 5-52 (Babar Azam, 32.5 ov), 6-225 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 78.5 ov), 7-230 (Mohammad Amir, 80.5 ov), 8-244 (Yasir Shah, 86.5 ov), 9-244 (Asad Shafiq, 87.1 ov), 10-248 (Wahab Riaz, 90.2 ov)
87.1 to Asad Shafiq, taken at fly slip! A stunning catch by Kusal Mendis! Is that the game? You'd think so. This is back of a length, swinging away from off stump. He reaches out at it on the front foot and it rises on him. Thick outside edge that hangs low to Mendis' right and he gets his hands under it before tumbling to hold on. A superb innings from Shafiq, but he won't take them home this time. 244/9
3.3 to Sami Aslam, taken this time. But the umpires want to check if it has carried. The soft signal is out. Good length outside off, not much movement, but it is wide enough for Aslam not to play, but he can't seem to help himself. He guides the dab straight into Mendis' hands, who dives low in front of him. It has carried nicely enough. And that's Sri Lanka's first. Great comeback from Gamage, but a terrible shot from Aslam.. 5/1
86.5 to Yasir Shah, stumping appeal. It looks very close. A superb delivery from Herath, dipping at middle stump, and beating the outside edge. And he's out. You have very little chance against this man if you're a lower-order bat. Slow, loopy ball at middle and leg draws Yasir into the drive. He goes against the turn and doesn't get to the pitch. Long, long way down. So long down that Dickwella, who doesn't gather it cleanly, has time to untangle himself and let it roll into his gloves, before taking the bails offf. 244/8
90.2 to Wahab Riaz, in the air and taken at extra cover. Floated up at off stump, dipping rapidly as he steps out. He gets too far away from it as he looks to slash and sends it straight up in the air. Chandimal steadies himself and holds on. 248/10
23.5 to Azhar Ali, there's light at the end of the tunnel for Sri Lanka. Azhar has paid the price for an over-defensive approach. This is tremendous from Pradeep. Lands this length ball just around off, gets this to jag back in. Azhar plays outside the line to get a thick inside edge that pops to a short square leg region. Easily taken. Credit to Chandimal for having a man there.. 36/2
30.1 to Haris Sohail, given! And Pakistan lose another. Their slump continues. It's the absolute perfect length from Dilruwan, full but not full enough for Sohail to smother, short but not short enough for Sohail to go back to. Sohail prods, but because it wasn't too full, the ball had room to turn. It did. It took the outside edge and Dickwella hung on. Fantastic delivery, a turning pitch would have taken that past the outside edge.. 49/3
32.3 to Shan Masood, another one! Masood follows the ball and edges it behind. It's Dilruwan's length again. Short delivery outside off, Masood is on the front foot, a good sign that he clearly misread the length of the ball - that was definitely short enough to go back to. The ball turns away, takes the outside edge and Dickwella takes another good catch. Let his hands go chasing after the ball.. 52/4
32.5 to Babar Azam, a two-ball duck for Azam. Pakistan are falling away rapidly. Mickey Arthur, well, let's just say that I've seen him happier. It's quick and straight from Dilruwan, Azam plays from the crease, not sure whether to go forward or go back, the ball takes the inside edge and carries low to leg gully, who dives in front of him and snaffles it up. Dilruwan's length has been impeccable. 52/5
78.5 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, and taken by Pradeep at deep backward square leg. Extra bounce? Flat delivery outside off, it's drift again. Sarfraz stays low and looks to sweep, but the ball bounces extra and takes the top edge. Pradeep misjudges the catch, runs in and to his left, and in again, and then to his left again before settling decently under the catch. Anyway will do. Sri Lanka are pumped. This will open an end up. he has been playing that stroke really well, but unlike yesterday, Dilruwan has been getting plenty of drift today.. 225/6
80.5 to Mohammad Amir, and out the following ball. Amir opts to review after umpire Kettleborough gives him out. It's quick on off, the ball drifts on, it's the new ball after all. Amir gets forward, but the ball misses the inside edge by a distance. There are two reds, and the one point of contention - impact, is umpire's call. Soooo close. Dilruwan gets five. And Pakistan have now lost seven. 230/7
