Mohammad Asif1012612.60421010
2.3 to ST Jayasuriya, Great delivery from Asif! swings in from just outside off stump, Jayasuriya beaten all ends up and ball strikes the pads, caught plumb in front and ball would have crashed the stumps. 4/1
Mohammad Sami1004914.90316010
48.2 to SL Malinga, another yorker and this one bursts through the defences of Malinga, who stood rooted to his crease, and uproots leg stump, Sri Lanka are nine down. 215/9
Umar Gul1006136.10428211
15.6 to CK Kapugedera, Slower ball from Gul, Kapugedera tries to loft straight but gets a big inside edge onto his stumps. Clever change of pace from Gul and that does the trick. 61/3
19.1 to DPMD Jayawardene, One more! fuller length ball outside off stump, Jayawardene goes for a big drive and gets a thick outside edge, simple catch taken by Akmal. 72/4
45.6 to HMCM Bandara, that was quick and straight from Gul, 135kmh, Bandara plonks his front foot down the pitch and tries to smash it over the off side, he gets an inside edge and the ball crashes into off and middle stump. 203/8
Abdul Razzaq1005215.20367003
25.4 to TM Dilshan, Five down! length ball on the middle and leg stump, Dilshan tries to flick off his legs and gets a leading edge to mid-on, Gul takes a simple catch. 103/5

Farveez Maharoof814715.87318004
25.5 to Mohammad Yousuf, What a jaffa! Maharoof unleashes a special. Is this Abu Dhabi or is this Lord's? Short of a length, pitched on middle, cutting away viciously and rattling off stump. Yousuf drives but misses it all ends up and can only look back in anguish. That was one lethal blow and Pakistan slipping here. 105/4

Malinga Bandara1016916.90316400
18.5 to Yasir Hameed, That's nailed him. Tossed up beautifully by the legspinner, pitches on leg and spins back, Hameed gets his front foot forward and pushes tamely but is struck on the front pad. Loud appeal and though he's well forward, umpire Mark benson lifts the finger straight away. He was no doubt well forward but that ball was going on to strike off. Bandara gets his reward for persisting with flight. Now then, is there a twist in store?. 84/2
