Junaid Khan803214.00304000
34.4 to TAM Siriwardana, Sri Lanka imploding, their house has caught fire and is collapsing. No one seems to have the equipment or the wits to prevent the blaze from spreading, leave alone put it out. Siriwardana has taken a bucket of fuel and thrown it in. It's short outside off, Junaid cleverly goes wide of the crease. Siriwardana, instead of soaking the pressure, chooses to release it with an ill-advises swat. It wasn't short enough, or straight enough. The ball hits the outside half of the bat and lobs to mid-on. Help yourself to a wicket. Wrong shot selection. 140/5
Rumman Raees7.205207.09216040
Mohammad Hafeez803914.87213010
42.4 to HDRL Thirimanne, short outside off, the ball spinning away, a thick inside edge via a cut into the boot. The umpires want to check something, out comes a not-out soft signal. Wait, that's gone. The thick inside edge goes straight into the back foot of Thirimanne, and then lobs towards Sarfraz, who takes the catch, oblivious to the fact that he has taken a catch. How unfortunate is that. When things aren't going your way, this happens.. 162/7
Hasan Ali1003453.40393010
10.5 to N Dickwella, 138 kph, goes right through and Sri Lanka lose their first! He is a skiddy bowler, a full delivery outside off - fourth-stump channel. Dickwella seems late on his shot. Firstly, he is standing back to a delivery he should have been forward to. Secondly, because he is late on the ball, the bat comes down at an awkward angle, from gully, not slip. The ball takes the inside edge and clatters into the stumps.. 59/1
33.4 to CK Kapugedera, that's a lollipop return catch. He keeps striking in the middle-overs, and by doing so, he's become the top wicket-taker in 2017. Too much bounce. Far too much bounce for him to pull off a flick shot. He did hit the ball twice, the leading edge lobbled up towards the bottom half of the leading edge, which carried it to the bowler. And to get that with an old ball, on a slow pitch, is really really special. Not sure he cares about any of that as he settles under the leading edge, takes the catch and then pulls off that celebration he so loves, throwing something to the ground, and mimicking an explosion. 137/4
35.4 to JDF Vandersay, 131 kph, another one! Six down. Short on middle and leg, Hasan's skiddy pace and steep bounce this time responsible for another leading edge. It's at the body, Vandersay tries to ride the bounce and help it down to fine leg, a good option, but the ball takes the leading edge and lobs towards short fine leg. Sarfraz has enough time to get across and take the catch. Hasan has three.. 141/6
43.1 to A Dananjaya, four for Hasan! Dananjaya nicks off and Sri Lanka's house has almost been reduced to nothing but ash and dejection. Good length delivery outside off, Dananjaya pokes at that and gets a thick outside edge which carries at a good height for Sarfraz. Nothing going right. Good from Sarfraz, because he had a slip too. 50 ODI wickets for Hasan, the fastest for Pakistan. 163/8
47.5 to PVD Chameera, five for Hasan! A short delivery outside off, moving back in, Chameera decides the best option is running it down to third man, but Hasan gets extra bounce again to take a thin outside edge through to the keeper. 205/9
Faheem Ashraf501002.00200000
Shadab Khan1003723.70250010
25.1 to LD Chandimal, that's the googly again! And for the second match in a row, Chandimal has played all around it. Given out lbw, but he's reviewed it. Beautiful bowling from Shadab again. Tossing it up, and luring the batsman forward. Chandimal plays for the legbreak, the bat beside the pad, which is perfectly in line with off stump. Umpire Kettleborough in action again, he sees clear daylight between ball and bat and ball-tracking shows it is hitting in line and will be crashing into middle stump. 102/2
27.4 to WU Tharanga, he's holed out at deep square leg! He's played such a good innings, subduing his instincts, preparing himself for as long a haul as his team would need. But then on comes this tripe - a short ball, and it's sliding down leg too. How could he let such an offering go? So he pulls, and pulls hard, only for the top edge to result and sail right down the throat of Fakhar Zaman.. 112/3

Lahiru Gamage713515.00285110
29.1 to Babar Azam, chopped on! Babar's amazing run in the UAE is finally broken before hundred. Full and wide from Gamage, Babar drives, bat well away from the pad. It may be the slow pitch or Babar's good form taking him to the ball earlier than he should have. Either way, the ball hits the inside edge and hits the stumps.. 144/2

Jeffrey Vandersay9.314314.52313010
16.5 to Fakhar Zaman, the googly does it. Sri Lanka strike. Not sure why that shot was required, he was doing it nicely. Vandersay tosses up that googly outside off. Zaman sees flight, runs down and doesn't bother about improvising once he sees the ball wide outside off. When you are in that awkward position - out of your crease, the ball in line with the keeper, intentionally bowled, the least you should do is attempt to improvise - close the bat-pad gap, anything. Zaman doesn't try, he lets his instinct take over, which is to bludgeon the ball, all in or back home. The googly spins past the edge, and Dickwella does the rest.. 78/1
Milinda Siriwardana201206.0041000
Thisara Perera402215.50101020
41.6 to Imam-ul-Haq, goes for the pull, and he gloves it through to the wicketkeeper. Gone for exactly one hundred, to a ball that was short and down leg side and ripe for the taking. Cross-seamer from Thisara, getting a little bit of extra bounce. For what its worth, that's good work from the allrounder. 203/3
