Fall of wickets: 1-30 (Ahmed Shehzad, 5.3 ov), 2-54 (Sharjeel Khan, 12.4 ov), 3-70 (Sohaib Maqsood, 16.1 ov), 4-128 (Mohammad Hafeez, 28.3 ov), 5-169 (Misbah-ul-Haq, 38.2 ov), 6-173 (Umar Akmal, 39.3 ov), 7-176 (Abdur Rehman, 40.5 ov), 8-194 (Umar Gul, 45.3 ov), 9-232 (Saeed Ajmal, 49.2 ov), 10-232 (Junaid Khan, 49.3 ov)
28.3 to Mohammad Hafeez, Hafeez's series tally ends here as he will not get four 100s in the series, despite looking good for that today. This one stays low before angling in sharply on off stump, which Hafeez fails to cover for. Probably the only way you could dislodge this player on current form.. 128/4
5.3 to Ahmed Shehzad, Shehzad suffering from Afridi syndrome here as he looks to make it three out of three. Length ball delivery from Lakmal on middle which is hit straight up, with mid-off getting under it to take a simple catch. Shehzad gone for 17, and you have to say, the shot selection was certainly suspect. 30/1
49.2 to Saeed Ajmal, fired in on middle stump as Ajmal plays all around this one to be struck on the pads. They have a review in hand so they have decided to go for it. It looked out on first glance, but lets see what upstairs has to say. This one hits him full, but you can see middle and off, so is the ball creeping down the leg side? This one is shown to clip the leg stump, so Pakistan are officially nine down. 232/9
49.3 to Junaid Khan, going down the leg side as Junaid is struck on his pads as he walks across the stumps. If he hadn't done that, he may have survived. But since Pakistan are out of reviews, and the umpire's finger went up, it is all over.. 232/10
12.4 to Sharjeel Khan, fires in a slower ball yorker on middle which surprises the left-hander, as he ends up popping this straight up in the air, with Malinga running to his left to complete the catch. 54/2
16.1 to Sohaib Maqsood, what a stunner from Dilshan as Maqsood, looking to cut this away through point, hits this one a bit too high in the air as Dilshan takes a smart, low catch to his left. A wicket against the run of play there as Pakistan are now three down. 70/3
38.2 to Misbah-ul-Haq, and would you believe it? the first shot of intent and then he goes ahead and clips one down the leg side (which seems to be the favoured mode of dismissal today throughout world cricket), with Sanga taking a wonderful catch down the leg side. Malinga strikes and Pakistan are now 169 for 5. 169/5
40.5 to Abdur Rehman, strikes him in line of the stumps and Rehman looked guilty as the umpire confirms the decision with the raise of his finger. With that Malinga now has four wickets, which has definitely been his best performance of the series.. 176/7
39.3 to Umar Akmal, and after Akmal survived that, he goes ahead to find the softest of ways to hole out to Dilshan, stationed at short midwicket, who takes an easy catch. Pakistan now 173 for 6, and they still have over ten overs to go and make a competitive total. 173/6

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-75 (Kusal Perera, 12.2 ov), 2-113 (Tillakaratne Dilshan, 24.1 ov), 3-129 (Kumar Sangakkara, 28.5 ov), 4-137 (Ashan Priyanjan, 30.2 ov), 5-166 (Angelo Mathews, 40.2 ov), 6-189 (Kithuruwan Vithanage, 43.4 ov), 7-194 (Sachithra Senanayake, 44.6 ov), 8-195 (Lasith Malinga, 45.3 ov)
30.2 to SMA Priyanjan, back of a length outside off as Priyanjan gets a thick outside edge which carries low to the keeper, who is able to snaffle it. Pakistan slowly coming back into this contest, and the way the run rate has declined, they just need a few more quick wickets to put some serious pressure on the Sri Lankans. 137/4
40.2 to AD Mathews, charges down the track to try and force the issue, but this one inside-edges, or so it seems, onto the pads. Pakistan like it and have gone up for the review. The ball seems to have hit the back leg, but can't say for sure if it has inside-edged. The final decision is out, and to be honest am really surprised by. Mathews is sent on his way, and all of a sudden the match is poised for both teams. 166/5
12.2 to MDKJ Perera, Kusal tries to be cute with a reverse sweep to find the fine leg boundary, but this one raps his front foot/pad on middle and off, and would definitely have hit the stumps. Kusal just threw away a glorious chance to capitalise and take Sri Lanka home with a big score. 75/1
24.1 to TM Dilshan, back of a length and Dilshan takes the bait, skying this high in the air over fine leg, with the fielder not making any mistakes. Ends a good innings from Dilshan. 113/2
28.5 to KC Sangakkara, Junaid fires it at the leg stump as Sangakkara shuffles over to the off side in hopes of working him away through midwicket, but this one was way too far away as the leg stump goes for a holiday. Never seen Junaid scream like that. Almost burst a blood vessel I think. 129/3
44.6 to SMSM Senanayake, goes for the pull through midwicket but the length was not appropriate as he ends up skying this in the air with Hafeez getting under it to take the catch. Sri Lanka now seven down, and it is not looking very rosy for them at the moment.. 194/7
43.4 to KDK Vithanage, Ajmal has the last laugh as he bowls a doosra which bursts through the gate that Vithu leaves open. Huge wicket in the context of the game as Sri Lanka looked to break away here somewhat. 189/6
45.3 to SL Malinga, Malinga goes for the big swing, and who can blame him, as he completely misses this one and gets his off stump knocked back. Ajmal has shown just how special a bowler he can be, especially in these situations. 195/8
