Hasan Ali1735903.47767001
Naseem Shah1835833.22878007
81.2 to DM de Silva, Wowza! And Naseem has knocked back Dhananjaya's middle stump! The second new ball does the trick as this seams in a touch from outside off on a good length, 135kph, and is through a gaping chasm that Dhananjaya has left between his bat and pad on the drive. Non-existent foot movement, but Naseem won't care about that one bit.. 290/6
89.1 to DN Wellalage, absolute snorter! Banged in short at the throat, follows him as he looks to get out of the way, takes the glove as he loses balance and lobs up for Babar Azam at second slip to take a simple catch. He took his eyes off it. Hostile bowling from Naseem and Pakistan have an early breakthrough. 327/7
91.5 to N Dickwella, strangled down the leg side! It was banged in short down the leg side, Dickwella wanted to help it along to fine-leg but didn't get enough bat on it, got it high on the bat near the maker's name, on the way to Mohammad Rizwan for a simple catch. Naseem Shah continues his good work this morning.. 333/8
Nauman Ali2126413.04914202
59.1 to AD Mathews, edged and taken! Against the run of play. It was a lovely delivery. Tossed up just outside off, drew him forward, and then bounced and spun away to take the outside edge as Mathews pushed at it and the keeper took an excellent catch. 195/4
Agha Salman602504.16212001
Mohammad Nawaz1938024.21798300
20.3 to BOP Fernando, And just like that he's gone! This was one of those deliveries you get at Galle, that you really can't do much about. Pitches on middle from around the wicket, and zips past his forward defence, catching the outside edge on the way to the keeper. Big wicket for Pakistan here, as Oshada was looking in great nick.. 92/1
74.1 to LD Chandimal, Oh dear, and what has he done here?! After all the praise Chandimal has received, he throws his wicket away. Comes down the track and he's looking to launch this from outside off, over mid-on. But there's turn and bite on this one, and it ends up in a top edge, that loops to short third for the simplest of takes.. 258/5
Yasir Shah2228333.77938301
29.6 to FDM Karunaratne, in the air, taken! Dimuth Karunaratne has thrown it away. It was length outside off, Dimuth went for the reverse sweep again but mistimed it flat towards the point fielder (Naseem Shah) who dived forward and completed a neat catch to end the Sri Lanka captain's stay. 120/3
96.6 to NGRP Jayasuriya, massive appeal for lbw, turned down. Pakistan review. This is very close, It was full on middle and leg, he skipped down the wicket and defended with his bat hidden behind the pad. There was obviously no bat. Ball tracking shows it would have hit leg stump and Yasir Shah has struck. 353/9
102.6 to RTM Mendis, Bowled him! This is the top spinner from Yasir on a length, 91kph, and it rushes Mendis, who looks to stay back and work this on the onside, but it's through him before he can get his bat down. And Pakistan have finally wrapped things up!. 378/10

Asitha Fernando2026213.10845000
0.2 to Abdullah Shafique, And Abdullah is gone! Inside edge on to the stumps! What a start for Sri Lanka, as Asitha pitches this on a perfect length, with Abdullah unsure whether to get back or stay forward. It's in the corridor outside off, and he just ends up poking a defensive stroke at this. The ball holds it's line and takes the inside edge on to the to off middle and leg.. 0/1
Prabath Jayasuriya37108032.161777200
9.4 to Babar Azam, bowled 'em! chopped on. Loose from Babar. It was an innocuous delivery, full and wide outside off, Babar reached out for it and went for the drive without getting to the pitch and got an inside edge back on to his stumps. Massive, massive wicket for Sri Lanka. They have an opening here.. 35/2
69.4 to Agha Salman, taken at slip! And Salman can't see out the day, as this one spits past his forward defence, and takes the edge straight into Dhananjaya's grateful hands. And that too on the stroke of stumps. Jayasuriya is elated.. 191/7
83.4 to Hasan Ali, knocks him over! It was a full delivery, he went down on knee for the sweep, but the line wasn't right as he had to drag it from outside off, only manages an inside edge back on to the stumps. After an hour's toil, Sri Lanka finally have the breakthrough. 223/8
Ramesh Mendis21.164752.22983100
26.2 to Mohammad Rizwan, And this time Rizwan can't get the bat down in time, he's rapped on the back pad, and this looks plumb! He decides to review after discussing with Fawad, but I really don't know why. This is three reds, and Pakistan have burned a review to boot. Rizwan was given a warning the previous ball, which spun sharply. He didn't heed it, and went back again and that was that.. 88/4
40.1 to Fawad Alam, massive appeal and given! Pakistan don't review. It was length on middle, Fawad played back. The ball skidded and went on with the arm, as he couldn't bring his bat down and it rapped him on the pads plumb in front of the stumps. It would have crashed into the stumps confirms ball tracking. Sri Lanka continue to chip away. Pakistan lose their crisis man. 119/5
50.3 to Mohammad Nawaz, edged and taken! Another batter falls playing on the backfoot. It was a length ball outside off, rushed on to him after pitching, he attempted the cut but it was too close and full for the stroke, and as a result got a bottom edge to the keeper who took a good catch. 145/6
86.1 to Nauman Ali, And he strikes first up! Edged and taken! So that dropped chance last over isn't costly, as Nauman again comes forward to defend and has edge taken by one that drifts in an spins away just enough. Dickwella completes the catch. 4 now for Mendis.. 226/9
88.1 to Yasir Shah, Yasir is given leg before here, after he misses a forward defence. He's the last man though, so he opts for the review. It's umpire's call on hitting the stumps, and that means it's the end of the Pakistan innings. And with it it's a five-for for Ramesh Mendis.. 231/10
Dhananjaya de Silva401513.75162000
18.2 to Imam-ul-Haq, cleaned him up! Tossed up on off, dips on him, Imam presses forward to defend, leaves a gap between bat and pad as he plays for the turn and down the wrong line, the ball bursts through the gate and hits off stump. 65/3

Hasan Ali1004404.40416011
Naseem Shah12.514423.42566003
5.6 to N Dickwella, edged and taken! It was a gentle length ball outside off, wasn't there for the drive, a leaden-footed Dickwella had a fish at and only managed an outside edge to the keeper. 27/1
34.6 to LD Chandimal, edged and taken! It was on a length outside off, wasn't there for the drive, Chandimal threw his bat at it and got a healthy outside edge to Mohammad Rizwan. It's the in form Chandimal, Pakistan are fighting back. 117/5
Yasir Shah2128013.808510000
10.1 to BOP Fernando, rapped on the pads and given! Yasir strikes straight away. Fernando doesn't review. It was a full ball middle that went on with the arm, Fernando pressed forward to defend but missed the line to be struck in front. He had to play around the front pad as he had planted his foot down the line. Pakistan fighting back. 47/2
Mohammad Nawaz2147523.57848100
15.2 to BKG Mendis, big appeal and given! Mendis walks. It was full on middle and leg, he planted his foot across and went for the sweep but missed the ball to be struck seemingly in front. The umpire had no hesitation and Pakistan are clawing back slowly but surely. 59/3
74.6 to DN Wellalage, Under edge taken by the keeper! This was very good keeping by Rizwan, who follows this one that's fired down leg. Wellalage goes for the reveres and gets a thin under edge, which Rizwan does well to hold on to.. 278/7
Nauman Ali1405413.85454000
67.4 to FDM Karunaratne, that's a blinder at short leg and that's the end of Dimuth Karunaratne.. It was length on middle, Dimuth clipped off the middle of the bat, but the short leg stayed low and hung his hand out to take a sharp catch to his left. End of a very useful innings from Dimuth. 243/6
Agha Salman1224113.41431001
29.5 to AD Mathews, And this bursts past the outside edge out of nowhere! Mathews stays back to defend this length ball, and there's some extra zip and bounce, that sees it speed past the edge, before looping up to slip off Rizwan's bicep. Pakistan review after the umpire deems there was no bat. And what's this? There seems to be the faintest of faint spikes as it passes the outside edge! Incredible review. Mathews shakes his head as he walks off, as he was certain he hadn't nicked it. And I don't blame him - that spike was positively molecular. No way would he have felt that.. 100/4

Prabath Jayasuriya32511753.6514015200
15.6 to Abdullah Shafique, Taken excellently at mid-off! Abdullah looks to break the shackles a bit, and comes down the track once more. This time he goes aerially but he can't connect as he would like. It goes high over mid-off, where Wellalage runs back and takes an incredibly well judged catch as the ball falls over his shoulder. What a moment for the debutant!. 42/1
53.2 to Mohammad Rizwan, Bowled him! A rare error in judgement, and Rizwan must go! This is on a good length outside off, and Rizwan looks to leave this alone. But it goes on with the arm, past his front pad, and just clips the outside of off stump.. 176/3
59.1 to Agha Salman, Sensational take by short leg! Kusal Mendis take a bow. This is phenomenal judgement, as he sees Salman going for the sweep and moves early to his right. Salman gets good contact on this, and it's flying past him at shoulder height, but Kusal somehow manages to get two hands to this and hold on. That is the definition of a game-changing piece of fielding.. 188/5
65.3 to Babar Azam, appeal for lbw and given! Babar Azam reviews. What an eventful 20 minutes since lunch. It was a length ball that skid on with the arm, Babar plonked his frontfoot forward and had to play around the front pad and couldn't get any bat on it. There was no bat involved and ball tracking shows it would crashed into the stumps. Sri Lanka have removed Babar Azam and have inched closer to a series levelling win. 205/6
71.5 to Yasir Shah, edged and taken and another five-for for Jayasuirya, his fourth. It was a length ball that drifted in and pitched on middle, Yasir turned the face too early and got a leading edge straight to gully. Sri Lanka just two wickets away now. 243/8
Ramesh Mendis30710143.3613412200
30.1 to Imam-ul-Haq, edged and taken! Sri Lanka are cock-a-hoop. Length outside off, pushed through quicker, went on with the arm as Imam looked to cut, but it was too close and full for the stroke and as a result he only managed an outside edge to the keeper. Excellent grab from Niroshan Dickwella. 97/2
66.4 to Mohammad Nawaz, Pakistan lose another! Poor stroke under the circumstances. It was a full ball on middle and off, Nawaz's eyes lit up as he tried to loft him over the top, but he was playing against the turn and got a leading edge that ballooned up for cover to take it comfortably. The missed review for lbw doesn't cost Sri Lanka much. 205/7
72.1 to Hasan Ali, bowled 'em! It was a length ball on middle, he went for the sweep and missed, it deflected off the flap of the pad and perhaps took some of his arm as well and landed right over the stumps. 243/9
76.6 to Naseem Shah, in the air and taken! It was length outside off, he went down on one knee and went for the slog sweep, got a lot of height on it but not enough distance, and was caught comfortably on the deep midwicket fence. With that, Sri Lanka level the series . 261/10
