Umar Gul37213563.6415920012
4.6 to SM Warnapura, edged and gone! Full outside off, bowled at 136.8 kmph, not quite there to the pitch, goes through with an attempted drive anyway, the ball moves away, takes the outside edge and Misbah at first slip makes no mistake. Pretty straightforward chance, but still well held. Warnapura's aggressive streak costs him his wicket. 16/1
8.4 to NT Paranavitana, what a superb catch!!! Short and wide, cut away powerfully off the back foot, that flew off the bat but Shoaib Malik dived to his left to pull off a blinder, made it look easy there but that was travelling. 35/2
26.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, good length delivery outside the off stump and moving away slightly, Jayawardene coming forward gets the outside edge low down as Akmal dives to his right to take a wonderful catch.. 96/3
135.3 to HAPW Jayawardene, Gul strikes!! Good length outside off and moves away off the pitch, gets half-forward to defend it on the off side, the away movement produces the thinnest of edges and Akmal takes it neatly behind the stumps. 542/6
143.6 to T Thushara, five-for, it was the slower offcutter, bowled on a good length outside off at 129 kmph, he came forward to defend but the ball came back in sharply to bowl him through the gate. 566/7
145.6 to BAW Mendis, superb inswinging yorker to the tail-ender, predictably he fails to get his bat down in time and the stumps take a beating. Gul gets his sixth, it's been an excellent effort. 572/9
Mohammad Talha1708815.176914017
150.6 to M Muralidaran, full and straight and gets the reward this time, Murali has a wild swing at it, though one must say the ball was in the slot, he missed and the middle stump is knocked out. First wicket in Tests for Talha. 606/10
Yasir Arafat20210615.308017004
81.3 to KC Sangakkara, outside off stump, Sanagakkara fishes at it and gets a thin edge and Kamran takes it this time.. 300/4
