Umar Gul2.301626.40112040
19.2 to MDK Perera, another soft dismissal, it's a low full toss on middle and leg, he makes room and clips him down to midwicket, straight to the fielder. 141/9
19.3 to CRD Fernando, they've cleaned them all up! Another yorker and it's too much for Fernando, he tries to flick it to the on side and the ball clips his pad and rolls to the stumps. 141/10
Sohail Tanvir2029014.5033040
Aizaz Cheema403047.5064000
3.2 to WU Tharanga, Didn't take Cheema long to bowl that special delivery! All pace, swinging in and honing in on middle stump, Tharanga barely had time to get his bat down, the middle stump is pegged back. 30/1
18.2 to LD Chandimal, was a bit of a surprise at first when he gave him out, Cheema slid the ball in to the right-hander, on a yorker length almost, he swished at it, failed to make contact, the bat seemed to hit the ground and the ball clipped th edge of his pad in front of the stumps. 138/6
18.4 to NLTC Perera, that's a good catch! Umar Akmal's thrilled with that effort, Perera made room to squirt out a yorker, got a thick outside edge and Akmal swooped to his left and pulled off a good diving catch. 139/7
18.6 to SL Malinga, Timber! That inswinging yorker was a bit too much for Malinga, he made room, exposed the woodwork and Cheema was on target, middle stump is flattened. 140/8
Saeed Ajmal402215.50112000
5.3 to TM Dilshan, the dreaded top-edge! Dilshan stays at the crease and tries to slog him away, gets a thick top edge that swirls in the air and Misbah takes the sitter at short midwicket. 61/2
Shahid Afridi402105.2540010
Mohammad Hafeez302016.6631000
9.2 to KC Sangakkara, that's a very soft dismissal! Sangakkara didn't know how much power to use on the shot and he ended up tamely chipping it back to the bowler, don't know if the ball stopped on him but he was clearly caught in a moment of indecision. 87/3

Lasith Malinga3.303219.1473010
14.5 to Asad Shafiq, the most bizarre dismissal of the day so far! Shafiq makes room to hoick him over the on side, doesn't pick the slower ball, the ball hits his body and dribbles back towards the stumps, Shafiq has no clue where the ball is, looks back to see the off bail on the pitch. 90/4
Thisara Perera402616.50102020
3.6 to Mohammad Hafeez, Perera appeals full throttle this time for a lbw and he gets his man! Nips back in sharply from outside off and traps him at the crease, Hafeez seems unhappy and appears to show his bat, or was it off his follow through, I'm not sure. 31/1
Dilhara Fernando403619.00124200
18.6 to Shahid Afridi, is there a twist here? Fernando pitches it up and Afridi makes room and goes for the slog again, gets a thin outside edge and Sangakkara laps it up. It's amazing how the sound of that edge overshadowed the din here at the stadium. 133/5
Ajantha Mendis302016.6672010
5.3 to Imran Farhat, soft dismissal there! Farhat stayed at the crease and tried to loft him downtown over long-on, didn't get the distance and Perara took the catch several yards in front of the rope. 36/2
Tillakaratne Dilshan20814.0050000
6.3 to Umar Akmal, not too sure what he was trying to do! He gave himself room but played all around it and lost his leg stump, now the game is wide open. 44/3
