Fall of wickets: 1-30 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 12.2 ov), 2-142 (Kumar Sangakkara, 49.3 ov), 3-154 (Lahiru Thirimanne, 55.5 ov), 4-189 (Angelo Mathews, 68.3 ov), 5-226 (Dinesh Chandimal, 84.5 ov), 6-261 (Kithuruwan Vithanage, 91.2 ov), 7-277 (Dilruwan Perera, 95.2 ov), 8-288 (Dhammika Prasad, 102.6 ov), 9-291 (Kaushal Silva, 104.3 ov), 10-300 (Nuwan Pradeep, 109.3 ov)
12.2 to FDM Karunaratne, Wahab strikes eventually, Karunaratne gone on the pull, sharp pace and bounce from Wahab on a slow wicket, Karunaratne was cramped and hurried into the shot, tried forcing it away on one leg, but underedged it to the keeper. 30/1
49.3 to KC Sangakkara, Wahab strikes, it is the big strike of the great man, a fuller delivery after those couple of shortish ones, tight line just outside off again, Sanga sucked into the drive without a sufficient stride, and lone slip pouches the edge, crucially Wahab has some part of his boot behind the line this time, only a bit, but that is enough. 142/2
68.3 to AD Mathews, the round-the-wicket angle works and Wahab Riaz gives Pakistan another massive wicket, this has nipped in just a bit from a good length, Mathews has only made it harder for himself by playing half forward and well away from the body, and the inside edge has crashed into the stumps. 189/4
84.5 to LD Chandimal, Chandimal has fallen to the arm ball, it had been troubling him, Babar tosses it up on a length, Chandimal lines up for a cut even though it is not quite the length for the shot, but the ball hurries in and bounces to strike the top of middle. 226/5
102.6 to KTGD Prasad, that looks plumb, and Prasad is gone, it straightened from a length, Prasad tried to work it square, missed, it hit him above the knee roll, in front of middle and off, umpire Illingworth gives it right away, Prasad reviews, but replays show that is clipping the stumps. 288/8
104.3 to JK Silva, Silva won't carry his bat, he is gone finally, he's swept his 300th delivery off the back of his bat into the keeper's gloves, it brushed the pad, slowed down to catch the bat as Silva completed his swing, and the ball popped up for a sitter to Sarfraz. 291/9
95.2 to MDK Perera, and Yasir strikes second ball, lovely delivery, tossed up, pitches just outside off, turning away, Perera follows it, and feathers it through to the keeper, nice take from Sarfraz. 277/7
109.3 to N Pradeep, Yasir ends the innings, Pradeep slogs and top-edges, it goes straight up and bowler settles under it. 300/10
55.5 to HDRL Thirimanne, Thirimanne gives it away, Hafeez removes another left-hander, Thirimanne trying to force it over the infield as he stepped out, could not clear mid on, tame catch to the man. 154/3
91.2 to KDK Vithanage, Hafeez has taken out another left-hander, rather soft dismissal, Vithanage jumps out, reaches the flighted ball on the full, but just about, his bat hits the ground as he pushes at the ball and he ends up popping it straight back to the bowler. 261/6

0.6 to Mohammad Hafeez, but he is gone next ball, Prasad pitches it up for the drive, Hafeez goes for it, the ball moves away slightly to take a thick edge to third slip. 2/1
2.4 to Ahmed Shehzad, Prasad has removed the openers, Hafeez survived a similar shout, Prasad has found some movement with the new ball that Pakistan could not, Shehzad has been hesitant to get forward, he is pinned on the crease as this length ball skids in from outside off to strike the pad, umpire Illingworth raises the finger, Pakistan choose not to review, umpire's call, shows ball tracker, with about half the ball hitting leg. 11/2
65.5 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, he's tried one stroke too many and has given away a Test hundred, trying to sweep a fast bowler from several feet outside off, got to the ball just on the full, and only underedged it on to his stumps, he is walking back slowly, placing his bat on his helmet in frustration. 235/6
34.1 to Misbah-ul-Haq, outstanding take from Kumar Sangakkara at first slip, Misbah driving without much of a stride, Pradeep pitches it up and manages a hint of away movement, the edge flies to Sanga's left, he follows it with an instinctive dive and pouches the ball low, in one hand. 96/5
86.4 to Yasir Shah, the short ball gets Yasir, it was travelling down the leg side as Yasir tried to hook, only gloved it for the keeper to dive and take it low. 302/8
9.1 to Azhar Ali, that looks plumb, and Herath has taken a big wicket, Azhar had been playing back, but had survived, he has played half forward now, also shuffled a long way across as Herath tossed it up, the ball did not turn, and Azhar missed with his push, struck right in front. 35/3
27.4 to Younis Khan, and Perera has broken through against the run of play, Younis and Misbah had countered spin by using their feet, but Younis has fallen in that pursuit this time, darted down the track to a tossed up delivery, looking to drive against the turn, there was sufficient turn on this, it drifted in a bit as well, and beat his bat by a long way to strike the top of leg. 86/4
79.3 to Wahab Riaz, Wahab has hung around for some time, but he goes now, charges out and heaves, misses the flighted delivery, and has his middle stump rattled. 273/7
105.6 to Zulfiqar Babar, Sri Lanka end the partnership finally, Babar holes out to long off, skipped out to a full toss, and ended up slicing it high, Vithanage settled under it. 403/9
113.1 to Asad Shafiq, done him in the flight this time, Shafiq walked out a long way, but was still well short of the pitch as the ball drifted away a shade, then spun in sharply to go between bat and pad, bounced at the keeper, who took his time controlling the take, but Shafiq was so far out there was no coming back. 417/10

TOTAL77.1 Ov (RR: 2.66, 341 Mins)206
Fall of wickets: 1-18 (Kaushal Silva, 8.4 ov), 2-63 (Kumar Sangakkara, 19.1 ov), 3-63 (Dilruwan Perera, 21.1 ov), 4-132 (Lahiru Thirimanne, 48.1 ov), 5-144 (Angelo Mathews, 53.2 ov), 6-167 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 61.3 ov), 7-175 (Kithuruwan Vithanage, 65.3 ov), 8-200 (Dhammika Prasad, 72.5 ov), 9-203 (Rangana Herath, 73.4 ov), 10-206 (Dinesh Chandimal, 77.1 ov)
8.4 to JK Silva, Wahab strikes ultimately, Silva falls to the left-armer's angle and change of pace, Wahab rolled his fingers and took pace off this length delivery, Silva went pushing forward, eyeing another drive, but it did not come on and he pops it tamely to third slip. 18/1
48.1 to HDRL Thirimanne, and Wahab Riaz is Pakistan's man again, not the best stroke from Thirimanne, Wahab hits back of a length at pace and gets it to climb, Thirimanne leans half forward trying to push on the up, and the thick edge is snapped up by Younis Khan at slip, goes level with Sunil Gavaskar on 108 Test catches. 132/4
19.1 to KC Sangakkara, and that angle has worked immediately, this breaks in a long way from outside off and bounces more, Sanga is pushing forward, it takes the inside edge on to pad for a sitter to short leg, what a massive strike moments from the close of play. 63/2
21.1 to MDK Perera, and he is in business first ball, top accuracy from the legspinner, Perera has shouldered arms expecting a turning legbreak, but this has been delivered from back of the hand, pitched off on a length, and gone on straight to disturb the stumps. 63/3
53.2 to AD Mathews, Mathews has been given caught at short leg, and reviews immediately, tossed up, drifting in, pitching just outside leg stump, Mathews has to get bat around the front pad with the increased angle, it pops up off the knee roll, has that nicked the inside edge, there is no way to be absolutely certain with only visuals, although there seems to be slight space between as ball passes the bat, and well, well, umpire Illingworth has raised his finger again, a stunned Mathews walks up to have a word with the umpire, and walks away shaking his head, can only be deduced that the on-field decision has been upheld for the lack of sufficient contrary evidence, Mathews can consider himself rather unlucky here. 144/5
61.3 to FDM Karunaratne, and then he gives it away very next ball, jumps out to a flighted ball, which he has been doing all day, but does not look to push softly, instead he has a bit of a heave inspite of not being near the pitch, misses amid sharp turn, and is stumped. 167/6
65.3 to KDK Vithanage, tries to hit his way out and hits it straight to deep backward square leg, flighted ball breaking in from just outside off, Vithanage on his knee for a big sweep, and picks out the man, fifth strike for Yasir, what a spell. 175/7
73.4 to HMRKB Herath, Sri Lanka going down in a heap, now Herath has holed out to deep midwicket, went for the slog sweep to a ball tossed up outside off, and Hafeez makes no mistake in the deep, tumbling forward to take a low catch. 203/9
77.1 to LD Chandimal, Yasir has ended the innings with his seventh strike, Chandimal has jumped out and walked past a flighted legbreak that swerves away outside off to set up a simple stumping. 206/10
72.5 to KTGD Prasad, Babar has broken through right after the unsuccessful review, Prasad has given him a charge and a heave, and missed the flighted ball which has spun away sharply from his reach outside off, Chandimal is disgusted. 200/8
