Mohammad Asif1017617.60259103
44.4 to KS Lokuarachchi, Loku falls. It was full in length, around off stump, Lokuarachchi steps down the track, flicks, in the air and straight to deep midwicket.. 244/6
Najaf Shah1015905.90336111
Iftikhar Anjum1005335.30314130
10.1 to ST Jayasuriya, Gotcha! He has chopped it on to the stumps! Disaster gatecrashes into the Sri Lankan party. It landed on a length, outside off and shaped back in, Jayasuriya went for a cut, was cramped for room as the ball nipped back in, got an inside-edge and on to the stumps.. 62/1
12.2 to WU Tharanga, Anjum is on fire. Teasing line, full and outside off, moving away off the seam and Tharanga is sucked into drive, on the up, but ends up nicking it behind. Big wicket. Tharanga looked in complete command there.. 73/2
18.3 to CK Kapugedera, Anjum takes out another one. Short and well outside off stump, Kapudgedera's eyes lit up at the width offered and he went for an expansive cut but edges it behind and Akmal took a good diving catch to his left.. 101/3
Abdur Rehman1004414.40355010
45.4 to LPC Silva, And now Silva falls. Death by aggression. Charges down the track, and Rehman quickly drags back the length and sends it outside off stump and Silva tried to play it across the line, gets a inside-edge and it crashes into the furniture.. 252/7
Mohammad Hafeez1005525.50211200
41.2 to DPMD Jayawardene, tossed up around the off stump, Jayawardene goes down on one knee and tries to slog sweep over mid-wicket, misses it completely and ball hits the middle stump. 225/4
43.5 to MF Maharoof, Hafeez gets his revenge. Serves a low full-toss, on the stumps, and Maharoof drives uppishly, to the left of Hafeez who dives to take it. SL lose their fifth wicket. 240 for 5.. 240/5

Farveez Maharoof8.504324.86398013
2.2 to Salman Butt, Eary jhatka for Pakistan. Early blow ie. It landed on a length, around the off stump line, Salman initially looked to play but wanted to leave it alone at the last minute. Too late. It collided with the inside-edge and disturbed the furniture.. 5/1
42.5 to Najaf Shah, that's it, Maharoof wraps it up with an lbw that looked like it was missing off stump. 181/10
Lasith Malinga803304.12335001
Dilhara Fernando712032.85323000
13.2 to Yasir Hameed, Fernando strikes, hits the pitch hard and suprises Hameed, who tries to pull, with some extra pace. The ball balloons up in the air and could have been caught by about five people. Sri Lanka are right on top.. 66/3
15.2 to Mohammad Yousuf, out...full-length delivery catches Yousuf on the crease, clever change of length and a good fast delivery. This is turning out to be a really fine spell of bowling from Fernando.. 68/4
15.3 to Fawad Alam, brilliant return catch, taking nonchantly by Fernando in his follow through. Soft dismissal off a low full toss. Pakistan are now in disarray.. 68/5
Tillakaratne Dilshan401904.75131100
Kaushal Lokuarachchi1013223.20370100
28.4 to Abdur Rehman, bowled through the gate as the ball turns back sharply, also bowled a little quicker, going onto hit the top of middle and off stump. Another one bites the dust. 114/7
40.3 to Iftikhar Anjum, top edges an attempted sweep and Prasanna Jayawardene is gifted a simple catch behind the stumps. 166/8
