Umar Gul905806.44278100
Sohail Tanvir915115.66304111
7.1 to WU Tharanga, Tanvir strikes. This is a length ball, outside off, lands on the upright seam, holds its line, and takes the edge of the pushing bat. Tharanga walks. 37/1
Shahid Afridi1005015.00304020
30.6 to LD Chandimal, Afridi strikes finally. Slower through the air, and that's what made Chandimal play for the turn here. Pitches on off, and finds Chandimal playing well outside the line as this one slides trhough and raps him on the pad in front of middle and off. Easy lbw decision for the umpire. 154/3
Rahat Ali403408.50105010
Saeed Ajmal1004914.90345100
45.4 to DPMD Jayawardene, bowled'im. MJ shimmies down, plays for an offbreak, looking to go inside out, but this one doesn't turn and hits the top of off. Ajmal shows emotion through a fistpump. 240/4
Mohammad Hafeez813013.75272000
16.1 to KC Sangakkara, and a breakthrough he provides. Who could have guessed this? A flat, straight loosener, Sanga goes back to punch this. Does it stop a bit? Perhaps. Perhaps not. However, he ends up lobbing this off the toe end, back for a soft catch to Hafeez. Don't shake Hafeez's hand any time soon. You might turn to gold. 84/2

Nuwan Kulasekara8.213323.96334000
36.3 to Azhar Ali, he has broken the leg stump into two. How fast bowlers love that sight. Azhar is making room, and Kula bowls the yorker, right at the base of the leg stump. It squeezes under the bat, and ends the innings short of a century. 157/5
46.2 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, slower ball, huge appeal for lbw as he misses a flick, and he is given. Was down the wicket, but that looked straight. Going down as it was an offcutter, but given. That levels the series. 204/10
Lasith Malinga814025.00265000
37.4 to Shahid Afridi, that's a lovely catch from Sanga. That should do it for the game, and should make up for that drop too. It's a slower ball, mind you. Short of a length, Afridi looks to run it down, gets an edge, and it goes not only wide, it is also dying on Sanga. He dives full length, and plucks this one-handed. That's his 300th catch too. Not a bad way to bring it up. 165/6
45.6 to Saeed Ajmal, another short ball, Ajmal backs away and swings again, edges it safely through to Sanga. Better out than injured. 204/9
Angelo Mathews1004804.80334100
Thisara Perera1004464.40345000
10.1 to Mohammad Hafeez, stunning caught and bowled by Perera. Sri Lanka needed some magic, and Perera has produced it. Length ball, driven back at him, Perera's natural reaction to get away from the stumps after delivering, so he fights that motion, and dives full length onto the pitch to grab this one-handed. 48/1
16.5 to Younis Khan, the horse hasn't quite bolted. YK, like life, presents Sanga a second opportunity, and he grabs it with both hands. A loose drive outside off, another edge, and this time - as Bob Willis would say - Sanga makes no mistakes. That was well short of a driving length. 78/2
29.1 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Perera is having a great day. Gets a wicket with the first ball of a spell for the second time. A bit of an offcutter, short of a length, outside off, beats the inside edge, hits his back pad in front of off. The line is not a question here. The only doubt has to be the height, but Paul Reifell has no such doubts. And he has been spot on today. 127/3
33.2 to Umar Akmal, another wicket for Perera, another wicket before the Powerplay, but Umar Akmal can't believe he has been given out. Short of a lenght, looks to run it fine to the right of the keeper, misses, and has been given out. Replays show there is clear flood light between bat and ball. Akmal is not impressed. 139/4
40.1 to Sohail Tanvir, Boy, can he ever? The third time he has taken a wicket with the first ball of a new spell tonight. 170/7
44.4 to Umar Gul, that's his No. 6, a personal best for Perera. Gul is a sitting duck. Stays in the crease, and swings across the length. Misses, and is dead plumb. Couldn't have been plumber. 197/8
