Sohail Tanvir401233.00170010
0.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, Tanvir strikes in the first over, Mahela, looking to work a length ball to leg after taking a couple of steps out, has spooned it high up in the air off a leading edge instead, and Shoaib Malik manages to hold onto the steepler as he tumbles to the ground at cover, he had to shield his eyes initially from the floodlights as he steadied himself for the take. 2/1
2.3 to TM Dilshan, Tanvir is smiling, it was a rather poor line, fullish and down the leg side, but Dilshan has flicked it straight to fine leg, he saw the line and went after it powerfully, but picked the man in the deep. 11/2
4.4 to KC Sangakkara, Tanvir's productive night continues, now he has Sanga chopping a drive on to his stumps, Sanga walks back in disappointment, he went for a big cover drive, there was some width available off the pitched up ball, but all he managed was a big inside edge. 31/3
Umar Gul4043010.7582220
Mohammad Sami2022111.0055000
7.2 to LD Chandimal, Sami strikes, Chandimal's heave misses, and Sri Lanka are in trouble now, Chandimal saw the length ball angled in, and decided to slog wildly over midwicket, but missed. 39/4
Shahid Afridi20904.5071000
Mohammad Hafeez402205.5082000
Saeed Ajmal402025.00112000
12.5 to AD Mathews, it is not easy to hit Ajmal anytime, even harder to go after him under the pressure of T20, Angelo tries to slog with the turn, this one is bowled slightly slower, and strikes the stumps after going past Angelo's swipe. 65/5
16.2 to HDRL Thirimanne, connects well with the reverse sweep but hits it straight to Gul at short third man, he takes a sharp catch as he tumbles to the ground, it was a quick doosra from Ajmal just outside off. 89/7

Nuwan Kulasekara301324.33141010
0.1 to Mohammad Hafeez, captain is gone first ball, nothing much in the delivery, widish length ball, he looks to punch-guide it from the crease but finds backward point. 0/1
0.2 to Shakeel Ansar, Dilshan takes another one at backward point, two in two, Ansar has a forgettable debut, could not control the punch-steer again off the widish length ball, a bit of a loose waft in the end, Dilshan pouching another low take at backward point. 0/2
Lasith Malinga301224.00101000
12.2 to Umar Akmal, Akmal has given it away, he went to pull Malinga, the ball got big on him and Kula took the top edge safely at mid off after taking some time to judge it and set himself up. 68/5
16.2 to Umar Gul, deep midwicket almost overran the ball as he came in from the rope but then stopped and took the ball as it came down, Gul had tried to push at the slower one but hit it high in the air. 87/9
Angelo Mathews41822.00201000
3.6 to Khalid Latif, this time there is no doubt, Sanga has pulled off a stunner diving to his right, Latif going for a big drive to a full one that moved away a bit, Mahela appeals, for the fun of it, even as Sanga tumbles down with the ball safe in his gloves. 12/3
9.2 to Shoaib Malik, that is an outstanding catch, just incredible, Perera running across from third man, diving full-length to his right and taking the slash off a wide one from Malik even as he is parallel to the ground in the air. 46/4
Thisara Perera2.402318.6251010
17.4 to Saeed Ajmal, that will be the end of that, Ajmal gets an edge through to Sanga as he backs away and a has a heave to a back of a length ball. 95/10
Kaushal Lokuarachchi201708.5051020
Sachithra Senanayake302026.6681110
13.1 to Shahid Afridi, he's gone second ball, the offspinner has struck, big celebrations, Afridi charged out immediately to a flighted ball, had a huge heave, and the thick edge was taken by a leaping short third man. 70/6
15.2 to Ahmed Shehzad, bowled this time, backing away to a flat and shortish one, trying to dab it to third man, missing and losing his bails. 85/8
