Ruchira Perera1026706.703511041
Dilhara Fernando1007127.103310031
5.4 to Imran Nazir, first strike! Fernando pitches it fuller and straighter, and Nazir plays all around it as it nipped in a touch. 45/1
49.2 to Abdul Razzaq, cleaned up by yet another slower delivery that pitches on leg stump, as Razzaq swings across the line and loses his leg stump. 308/9
Farveez Maharoof1006536.50318101
38.5 to Shahid Afridi, no boom boom from big man Afridi today! Maharoof gets him to flash his bat at a fuller one outside off stump, draws the leading edge that skies up in the air to deep cover, where Bandara, running in, dives forward and takes a very good low catch! Great effort!. 237/6
45.5 to Kamran Akmal, the fun ends for him this time though, as he slaps a slow full toss outside off stump in the air to Dilshan at backward point, who takes a simple chance. 277/7
48.6 to Mohammad Sami, all over! Sami has another heave at one full on middle stump, fails to connect and hears the rattle of timber behind him, but well played. 308/8
Malinga Bandara1005635.60263101
22.2 to Yasir Hameed, got 'em! Bandara persists with this well looped up deliveries, tossing one out the back of the hand, landing it on about leg stump, and Hameed, after playing so well to get to his half-century, just tamely chips it back to Bandara for the softest of dismissals. 143/2
26.6 to Salman Butt, he strikes again! Like the delivery to Hameed a while back, Bandara perseveres with a tossed up ball on leg stump, and Butt, so fluent all innings, just chips this back in the air to give the bowler his second simple catch. 167/3
32.3 to Shoaib Malik, and he gets a third! Call it a rush of blood to the head, but Malik dances down the track, no doubt eyeing the vacant leg side, Bandara sees him coming, pushes it in a bit faster, beating his charge and the ball thuds into the top of middle and leg, big, big wicket that. 207/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mohammad Asif1005925.903711021
8.4 to SM Warnapura, now Asif joins the fun, dismissing Warnapura on debut with one that's fuller, pitching in line with off stump, and getting it to come in and catch him somewhat deep in the crease in front of middle stump, and umpire Tiffen has little hesitation in raising the dreaded finger. 49/2
35.2 to DPMD Jayawardene, good change to bring back Asif, it would seem, and with that big wicket Sri Lanka's last hope fades! Jayawardene goes for a pull to one that he should've come forward to, missing it completely as it nips in off a good length and knocks back middle stump. 188/7
Mohammad Sami612724.50275001
5.1 to CK Kapugedera, Sami! He strikes with a nasty inswinger, which Kapugedera drives at with zero footwork, and it beats him for pace and movement to shatter middle stump. 37/1
38.2 to MF Maharoof, and he's gone, looping up a well disguised slow, full delivery straight to Butt at cover. 205/8
Umar Gul3.503829.91116102
39.4 to HMCM Bandara, he too falls, pulling Gul straight to Hameed at midwicket, and this match is almost over. 215/9
39.5 to PDRL Perera, and he goes first ball, playing all over a full and straight delivery that crashes into middle stump as Sri Lanka go down by 98 runs. 215/10
Shoaib Malik1004614.60302032
31.4 to TM Dilshan, and the captain gets one, pushing one through faster and extracting sharp turn from the surface, and Dilshan, who's gone back trying to drive, gets hit on the pad in front of the stumps, a very, very loud appeal is upheld. 172/5
Shahid Afridi1003733.70364000
18.4 to WU Tharanga, Tharanga falls, two short of a fifty, sweeping one on leg stump, with a thick top-edge, to Nazir at short fine leg. 113/3
26.3 to LPC Silva, Afridi gets another, forcing Silva to shimmy down the track and chip one straight down Razzaq's throat at long-on, he just went through with the aerial shot and found the man positioned right there. 153/4
32.2 to HAPW Jayawardene, well, if he's not biffing runs, he's getting wickets at Abu Dhabi, is this man Afridi, who gets a third with a ripping flipper that drifts up, and then zooms in to strikeJayawardene on the full in front of middle and leg, and umpire Tiffen agrees with everyone in green who appeals. 176/6
