Nuwan Kulasekara1007417.40267200
46.6 to Abdul Razzaq, and he's gone, good catch by Mahela at extra cover, it is a fulltoss drilled towards Mahela who dives forward to give Kula his first wicket today. 266/8
Thilan Thushara1004614.60374130
1.3 to Nasir Jamshed, edged and taken at first slip! Poor shot from Jamshed, feet not moving as he fishes at a full delivery outside off stump, a real sucker of a shot, and Samaraweera gobbles it up in his lap, that was real catching practice. 9/1
Dilhara Fernando1016216.20286200
20.3 to Shoaib Malik, gone this time! Fernando lands a good short of a length ball around off stump that forces Malik onto the back foot, the ball gets some extra lift and takes the edge. 101/3
Angelo Mathews1004124.10365000
15.2 to Kamran Akmal, similar ball, wide but perhaps a tad bit fuller, and this time it yields a wicket! Akmal stays back and looks to hammer the ball through the off side but its quicker and rises up and he gets a thin nick through to a gleeful Sangakkara. 80/2
32.6 to Fawad Alam, hello, thats a smart catch by Mathews to go with a useless shot from Fawad! Fawad comes out of his crease like a maniac, Mathews sees him and holds back the length and draws a top-edged pull, the ball pops up toward midwicket but Mathews call for it, never taking his eyes off the ball, and then dives full length to pluck a beauty. 149/5
Muthiah Muralidaran1006426.40295130
37.5 to Shahid Afridi, gone right through him! Murali holds back the length and slips in a straighter one that beats Afridi as he goes back and pushes down the wrong line, the ball kisses the top of leg stump and then Murali blows sweet nothings to send back Afridi, which he doesn't like and in return tells him the rendezvous point as he storms off. 190/6
41.3 to Umar Akmal, now you take that, says Murali! Umar again waltzes out but this time swings across the line and misses the ball and hears the sound of timber, after which Murali is right up there in his ear with directions to the dressing room and what sightseeing to do in Dambulla. 226/7

Mohammad Amir9.314514.73325020
44.1 to SHT Kandamby, timber! Aamer pitches it fuller and straighter, Kandamby swings across the line, misses, and the ball pegs back the off stump. 268/4
Abdul Razzaq906216.882310010
34.4 to DPMD Jayawardene, and he falls with a tired shot! Razzaq hits the deck, Jayawardene once more tries that inside-out drive over extra cover but only succeeds in ballooning a catch that settles in the fielder's hands. 210/2
Shahid Afridi604507.50103110
Saeed Ajmal905426.00256010
33.3 to WU Tharanga, a wicket! Ajmal comes back and snaps a double-century stand by trapping Tharanga on the back foot as he pushes at the ball but on replays that looked a bit unlucky as the ball was hitting him outside off stump, unfortunate for Tharanga who played well. 202/1
35.2 to TT Samaraweera, hello whats this? Pakistan are fighting back, its a good ball from Ajmal, tosses up the doosra to Samaraweera who shuffles as he looks to clip the ball to on side but only ends up chipping a return catch to the bowler. 212/3
