Mohammad Amir1004534.50301011
44.3 to KMDN Kulasekara, Kulasekara departs as Razzaq hangs on to a skier, the batsman was looking to clear mid-off for a boundary, the ball goes high towards extra cover, Razzaq dropped a similar one earlier in the day but doesn't blow it this time. 173/7
47.1 to AD Mathews, Mathews' innings comes to an end, caught and bowled, he was too early into his shot and only managed to lob it back to the bowler Aamer, who juggled it a few times before hanging on. 204/8
49.1 to M Muralidaran, Aamer ends the Murali show with a yorker which hits the base of offstump, Aamer has kept his head despite the glut of runs, good work from the youngster. 223/9
Abdul Razzaq1003323.30361010
11.4 to WU Tharanga, finally Tharanga's troubled stay comes to an end, he had played and missed many times already and this time he gets the edge, a length ball just outside off, a thin edge through to the keeper. 45/2
31.4 to TT Samaraweera, Samaraweera departs to a shot he wouldn't like to look at again, it was wide outside off and he looked to pull that one, was a bit early into the shot and spoons it to Younis at mid-on. 125/5
Umar Gul804615.75285110
8.2 to ST Jayasuriya, Gul strikes with his second delivery, Jayasuriya is gone, not the greatest of deliveries, short and wide, Jayasuriya has both feet off the ground as he cuts the ball, a bit of a top edge, straight to Mohammad Aamer at third man. 31/1
Saeed Ajmal1004014.00292000
21.2 to KC Sangakkara, Sangakkara holes out to point, huge wicket for Ajmal, slower through the air and gets some turn there, Sangakkara looked to cut it over the infield but ends up giving an easy catch to Afridi. 93/3
Younis Khan201306.5062010
Shahid Afridi1015015.00295000
26.1 to CK Kapugedera, Afridi strikes, Kapugedera drives away from his body at a length ball outside off, results in an outside edge which Akmal collects gleefully. 106/4

Nuwan Kulasekara713024.28284000
6.5 to Shoaib Malik, Kulasekara finally gets rid of Malik, who has looked completely out of touch here, this was just short of a length, pitching on off and holding it's line, Malik was look for the inward movement, the ball takes the off bail. 29/1
10.6 to Mohammad Yousuf, he's a goner this time, length ball outside off, moving away from Yousuf, who flirts with it and gets a nick to the keeper, superb spell of bowling from Kulasekara. 48/3
Lasith Malinga8.405015.76337121
44.4 to Umar Gul, that's the end of that, Malinga gets the perfect yorker on middle and leg, Gul misses, the stumps are shattered, Sri Lanka are 1-0 up in this series. 196/10
Thilan Thushara802933.62323020
9.1 to Kamran Akmal, he strikes first ball, Akmal is cleaned up, no footwork at all from Akmal, back of a length ball, the batsman is stuck on the crease and the ball sneaks between bat and pad to crash into middle and off stumps. 41/2
16.3 to Shahid Afridi, an awful shot to get out, Afridi had looked in good touch till then, short and wide, Afridi has to reach across as he looks to dab it towards slip, can only feather it through to the keeper, Rameez Raja points out on TV that we would have praised it as a cheeky shot if he had pulled it off. 73/4
18.3 to Younis Khan, Younis Khan joins the procession, Sri Lanka are well on top here, a short and wide delivery gets the wicket again, Younis cuts it straight to third man. 78/5
Muthiah Muralidaran1004624.60272000
25.5 to Misbah-ul-Haq, another soft dismissal, Misbah's gone this time just as Pakistan seemed to be re-building, straighter one does the trick, pitched on a length just outside leg, Misbah looked to slip it to the leg side, gets a leading edge which lobs back to the bowler. 95/6
37.2 to Abdul Razzaq, Murali strikes with the second ball of this spell, pitching on middle and off and turning in, Razzaq was caught on the back foot looking to turn the ball towards the leg side, no doubt about that one. 134/8
Angelo Mathews502204.40193010
Sanath Jayasuriya601412.33230000
36.4 to Fawad Alam, arm ball from Jayasuriya does the job, Fawad is gone, he was on the front foot trying to push that to the off side, nicks it to the keeper, and that could well be the end of Pakistan's chances. 134/7
