16.3 to Ahmed Shehzad, this is not the smartest piece of batting. The midwicket is back, the square leg is back, Malinga is bowling short, but Shehzad still goes ahead and pulls limply. There is neither an attempt to keep this down nor is it a full-blooded pull looking for the six. Gives deep midwicket catching practice there. 93/1
Sachith Pathirana1004914.90294001
36.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, slog weep, timed really well too, but he has picked out the man at deep midwicket to perfection. The second Pakistani batsman to pick that man out. Two of three wickets have fallen to a catch at deep midwicket, and the third has run himself out. Hafeez has timed this pretty well, but failed to get the elevation to hit a six. Just a short-arm effort. 196/3

Mohammad Irfan713204.57242011
Anwar Ali502424.80183000
5.4 to TM Dilshan, slower ball does the trick here. It is quite full, a half-volley really, just outside off, but Dilshan has no pace to work with it, and all he manages is a hit straight to mid-off. Good defensive bowling from Anwar, and Pakistan have a big wicket. 33/1
7.5 to MDKJ Perera, Perera is gone. Anwar Ali must love Premadasa. He is doing it with the new ball here again. A big slower ball, should be pretty obvious because he has made a big change-up, but Perera has not picked it and it given it an almighty thump. It means the edge is a healthy one, and Sarfraz pouches it diving it in front of first slip. 42/2
Rahat Ali703515.00213020
30.1 to HDRL Thirimanne, don't captains love those days when a bowling change brings about a wicket first ball? Rahat Ali comes on, bowls short of a length, just outside off, Thirimanne looks to open the face, manages only a loopy edge, and Sarfraraz does the rest. Slower ball it is. 142/6
Shoaib Malik502805.60172100
Yasir Shah1012942.90350010
15.3 to WU Tharanga, lovely stumping from Sarfraz. Good bowling first of all as he flights the ball and gets some dip on it. Tharanga is stranded after jumping out of the crease and getting beaten on the inside edge, but the ball has turned and bounced sharply. Sarfraz is unfazed and makes the collection, and completes the stumping. 82/3
19.3 to AD Mathews, doesn't matter, as Mathews is gone next ball, he charges out and looks to thrash that over long-on, gets the leading edge and that is taken at long-off, is this game over?. 93/4
39.1 to NLTC Perera, and he gets one more wicket. Teases Perera with a slow flighted delivery. Perera's favourite zone is that wide long=on, and he finally goes for that shot. But he is not close to the pitch of the ball, and manages just a massive top edge, which is caught at the boundary. 170/8
39.4 to SS Pathirana, what a piece of brilliance from Anwar Ali to give Shah his fourth and bring this game closer to its end. They have gone to the third umpire but the soft signal is out. Pathirana is down the wicket to hit this flat and low towards deep midwicket, Anwar Ali charges in from his post at the boundary, and he has run in quite a bit, and then dives forward to take this centimetres from the ground. And after watching a few replays, the third umpire has decided there is no evidence to overutrn the soft signal of out. And it looks like a clean catch too. 172/9
Imad Wasim7.102823.90210010
26.6 to LD Chandimal, first wicket for Wasim. He has built the pressure with accurate bowling, and now gets the reward. Chandimal is looking to manufacture the sweep because they haven't hit a boundary for more than 12 overs and there is no man deep behind square on the leg side. But he has moved too far across and exposed the leg stump. Castled as he misses it. 130/5
41.1 to SL Malinga, arm ball to end the match. The debutant does it. This is a length ball on off, Malinga plays for the turn, the ball comes in to beat the inside edge and hits the stumps. 181/10
