Dhammika Prasad1324333.30583010
2.1 to Ahmed Shehzad, he is gone! That's a corker. He put a bit more shoulder on this one. It was pitched short of length around off stump, kicked up from the pitch and caught the outside edge. Sanga takes a smart diving catch to his right at first slip - he had to take it almost face high. Shehzad, well he was just stuck in the crease. He neither tried to get away from the line, nor tried to get behind it, in the end, got completely squared up. Poor defence, you could say, but that ball was a testing one. 5/1
15.1 to Azhar Ali, got him! Second one for Dhammika. Another one that has seamed away just a touch, bounced extra too. Azhar is completely squared up and the edge is taken by the keeper. It's not given out and Sri Lanka ask for a review straightaway. Looking at the replays it looks like it's the thigh pad. It has possibly missed the outside edge and flown off the top of that thigh pad. The original decision was not out and there is not much to tell if there was an edge. There were definitely two noises in the real-time replay. But is that enough? Paul Riefell has only sound cues to base his decisions on. He has given him. It's that second noise that has done him. Fair call from the umpire.. 51/2
23.6 to Younis Khan, he is walking! Shortish delivery, Younis tries to drop his wrists but this doesn't get up as much as he though. Just bounces off his gloves and lobs for the keeper. Big big wicket. Prasad is on a roll. 74/3
Angelo Mathews941601.77473000
Dushmantha Chameera1003313.30463005
41.4 to Zulfiqar Babar, played on! Chameera's first wicket has come how we expected it. Babar backs away to the length ball but this one is quick, it hits the under edge and smashes on to the stumps. 124/9
Tharindu Kaushal10.504253.87433102
28.3 to Mohammad Hafeez, ripper!! That is a big turner. It was shorter and Hafeez stayed back, which was fine, but he wasn't expecting it to turn so much. That surprised him, hit the inside edge, hit the pad, and rolled it to the stumps. Tharindu is ecstatic. 89/4
30.3 to Asad Shafiq, A big appeal for lbw. Shafiq has been given out by umpire S Ravi. Shafiq wants to challenge the decision after a chat with Misbah. This looks out. The tracker shows that the ball was crashing into the leg stump. Shafiq has to go and the covers come on... Kaushal's footing is fine. This turns in sharply from outside off on a length, Shafiq goes on the back foot and is rapped on the front pad. 95/5
38.4 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, that's gone! Kaushal has taken another one. Sarfraz is not reviewing this. That was tossed up full and Sarfraz opts for drive rather than sweep! That turned in from a fuller length, took the inside edge, hit the pad and lobbed up for Mathews at first slip. Initially it looked like a shout for lbw but there was a big inside edge involved. 113/7
40.2 to Wahab Riaz, loud appeal for lbw as this one appears to hit the batsman on the full! Sri Lanka will review it. It was a touch quicker and Wahab missed the sweep shot. The umpire takes time before saying it's not out. This one did not turn much though. Did it hit the bat? That's not easy to tell. But the tracker is showing it's hitting the middle of middle stump. Kaushal takes his fourth one. 117/8
42.5 to Yasir Shah, What a catch! Sanga, the man! Five wickets for Tharindu Kaushal. He bowls the doosra wide outside off, Yasir looks to slog it across the line, gets a thick top edge towards long-on.. Sanga, who was at deepish mid-on, has to run back and dive for it. Great effort in the end and Kaushal is the first one to run and thank the senior pro for that effort.. 138/10

Wahab Riaz921902.11442001
Junaid Khan2958913.0613110010
22.1 to FDM Karunaratne, there comes a wicket! Poor shot from Dimuth. He did this in the last innings in Galle as well.. did all the hardwork before throwing it away ... and he reacts in the same way. This was full and wide and swinging away... all day he has been leaving such deliveries but for some reason decides to chase that one, gets a thick outside edge. That's Junaid's 50th wicket against Sri Lanka. 47/1
Zulfiqar Babar3288212.561459000
43.2 to KC Sangakkara, what a waste! Sanga, what have you done! That was sweetly timed after he has stepped out to the flighted delivery, but what was the point of the shot with the long on back at the boundary. Asad Shafiq does well to take an overhead chance. He falls backwards but makes sure he is nowhere near the rope. But seriously? Why, Sanga? He falls 166 short of his double-century. 98/2
Yasir Shah41.359662.3119610000
54.2 to HDRL Thirimanne, no mistake from Azhar Ali at short leg this time! That drop hasn't cost them much. Yasir loops this one in, drawing the batsman forward, gets an inside edge that lobs up for Azhar after deflecting from the pads. The fielder juggles it before completing it. 'Wickets ikatthi aayengi (they will fall in a cluster), ' Sarfraz said just before he delivery... 119/3
76.6 to LD Chandimal, he has got him! What a ball! This one is pushed this one quicker and Chandimal hasn't helped himself by coming down the pitch and yorking himself! That one hits the middle.. 194/5
80.5 to KDK Vithanage, Yassssiir!! He has another one. But look at that shot from Vithanage! Awful. .Once again Sri Lanka's batsmen guilty of throwing it away. It's wide outside off, Vithanage stretches forward to play a reverse sweep! a reverse sweep!!.. But then Yasir gets this one turn big. It spins past the bat, past the body and smashes into the stumps.. 202/6
105.4 to AD Mathews, now Mathews has to go! This one was quicker, stayed low and hit the batsman right in front of the stumps. Mathews was stuck in the crease. The SL captain has asked for a review immediately but there is no bat on that. Unless it's going down the leg side, he is a gonner and I don't think it's going there. It's hitting the middle. Yasir Shah has become the fastest Pakistan bowler to 50 wickets. 275/8
117.2 to PHT Kaushal, another five-for Yasir! The batsman slogs against the line and top edges to mid-off where the Misbah is not going to make any mistake. Second consecutive five-for Yasir. Good reward for his persistence.. 303/9
121.3 to PVD Chameera, six for Yasir! Younis takes a good running catch. Chameera looks to slog it across the line, and gets a top edge that lobs behind the the keeper. Younis runs backward, keeping his eyes on the ball and taking a good running catch. 315/10
Mohammad Hafeez1021911.90441000
104.6 to KTGD Prasad, gone! Pakistan have finally broken through. Hafeez gets his first. That's as plumb as it gets. Prasand plays across the line to a full delivery, misses and is struck on the front pad.. 275/7

Dhammika Prasad29.339243.1112910010
47.1 to Ahmed Shehzad, first ball after tea! What a break for Sri Lanka. Shehzad, he played so well throughout the morning has a big lapse of concentration. He looks to pull one that is not really short, ends up top-edging it for the keeper to take the catch. He did not even try to hit that hard.. looked like a limp attempt at the shot.. 129/2
82.6 to Misbah-ul-Haq, hits him right in front! Misbah is reviewing this call. That looked good live. It was the ball he wanted to bowl last time. Fuller and this one swings back in to Misbah. The batsman is not really pressing forward and is struck just above the knee roll. It's hitting the top of off, so that stays with the umpire. Reward for Dhammika after some excellent bowling. 234/4
108.1 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, gets him first ball! Dhammika strikes again. It was a harmless delivery really but Sarfraz chases it without moving his feet. Faint edge into the hands of Chandimal. Prasad, the man again. Sarfraz's expression says it all. It was completely unnecessary. 301/6
110.2 to Yasir Shah, Beauty from Dhammika! The best bowler of the day keeps making inroads. Superb yorker, this slides under Yasir's bat to hit the stumps. 303/7
Angelo Mathews1151521.36582000
3.1 to Mohammad Hafeez, he is gone! That's the end of the lecture. Please come tomorrow. Sri Lanka have the first breakthrough. Poor shot from Hafeez again. This is a harmless length delivery outside off and Hafeez is sucked into a poke, ends up giving catching practice to first slip. Excellent start for Sri Lanka, not so much for Pakistan. 9/1
69.3 to Younis Khan, he is gone! Finally, Mathews puts Younis out of his misery. Bowls a gentle away swinger that catches the outside edge. Younis comes half forward, but he is pushing down the pitch rather than towards the line of the delivery. He did not look convincing all day. Not a great 100th Test till now.. 202/3
Rangana Herath3478912.611462120
113.4 to Azhar Ali, finally a wicket for Herath! Azhar comes down the pitch, perhaps a bit too early. Herath pulled the length back and got some turn on this, which was enough to beat the outside edge. Azhar finds himself stranded down the pitch and doesn't even bother making an effort to get back. End of an excellent innings from the batsman. 313/8
Dushmantha Chameera18.515332.81812011
98.3 to Asad Shafiq, Strangled down leg. The short one works. Chameera drags it down the leg side, this is much quicker at 140.4ks, Shafiq does not connect with the attempted glance properly. He can only glove it to Chandimal, who moves to his left to snap it up. 274/5
116.2 to Junaid Khan, Chameera gets a wicket! Short and wide, the batsman throws his bat at that, only manages a faint edge to the keeper. Sixth dismissal for Chandimal. 323/9
118.2 to Wahab Riaz, that should be it! Full and fast, hits the batsman in front of leg stump, S Ravi raises his finger. Wahab reviews it immediately. One could see the two stumps and it hits the outside half of the leg stump according to the tracker. So that's it. Wahab's brave little knock ends. 329/10

6.6 to KDK Vithanage, he is gone! he aims for that area at midwicket with another slog sweep, but gets under it too much. Hafeez sets himself up under it at deep midwicket and pouches an easy catch. A useful knock for Sri Lanka, he set the innings in some proper motion. 49/1
Yasir Shah10.305525.23356000
7.1 to KC Sangakkara, he is gone first ball! Yasir has done it. He spins this one from outside off, Sanga doesn't really come forward too far, this hits his glove, then the thigh pad and lobs up for short leg for an easy catch. This is a big big wicket. This is his sixth first-ball duck in Test cricket. Only 102 runs for him this series. 49/2
20.2 to FDM Karunaratne, appeal for lbw as this short one stays low and gets stuck in between the pads. The batsman was shaping for the pull but misses it. S Ravi raises his finger but Dimuth wants a review of that one. They are checking if there was an inside edge. On the first look, it looked like it was going on to hit the stumps. No sign of that edge. So the decision should hold. That turned and stayed low. 121/3
