Iftikhar Anjum8.214245.04305001
13.1 to DPMD Jayawardene, Gone! Jayawardene's horror run continues, short of a length ball, pitches on off and moves a touch away, Jayawardene feathers it through to the keeper and the complexion of the game has changed in five deliveries. 89/3
34.3 to KC Sangakkara, The big wicket of Sangakkara. His innings is sawed off at 49, as Sangakkara decides to upper cut the ball at the last moment, after intially shaping to let the bouncer outside off go, Salman Butt at backward point dives to his right and completes an athletic catch. 176/6
34.4 to T Thushara, A footwork-free waft, to a short of length ball just outside off, from Thushara ends up in a simple catch to the keeper, the faintest of edges and Iftikhar is on a hat-trick. 176/7
45.2 to BAW Mendis, And that's the end of the innings, Mendis goes for a Hollywood drive, he misses completely as the ball moves in a little and crashes into middle stump.. 219/10
Umar Gul903033.33361010
8.4 to TM Dilshan, He's gone this time, short ball, sat up to be hit, Dilshan pulls it but straight to Salman Butt at fine leg. That's a huge relief for Pakistan and the fans find their voice again. 71/1
12.2 to ST Jayasuriya, Gul strikes again, Jayasuriya is plumb lbw. A very full ball on middle and leg, Jayasuriya was stuck in his crease and he missed it, no doubt at all about that decision, huge wicket for Pakistan. 86/2
44.1 to KMDN Kulasekara, short of a length ball, moving a bit away from the batsmen, Kulasekara is drawn towards it and nicks it through to the keeper, that's another Sri Lankan wicket going down after a stroke which involved no footwork. 211/9
Shahid Afridi1014714.70304030
25.3 to CK Kapugedera, he's gone this time, bowled him, Kapugedera steps out and tries to work a length ball on middle and off towards the leg side, against the spin too, he misses it completely and that's Pakistan's fourth wicket. 143/4
Shoaib Malik601913.16201000
43.3 to MF Maharoof, Maharoof's gone, Sri Lanka seem to have developed a knack of losing wickets just as a partnership is developing, Maharoof sweeps Malik in the air but only manages to find Misbah-ul-Haq at the midwicket boundary. 209/8

43.2 to Younis Khan, Younis Khan goes, full ball on leg stump, Younis was a bit early on the shot, and scoops a simple catch to the mid-on fielder. 205/2
Muthiah Muralidaran1014214.20303001
37.1 to Khurram Manzoor, first wicket down for Pakistan, a flighted delivery, on offstump, Manzoor looks to launch Murali down the ground, but only manages to smash it back to the bowler. 168/1
