Hacked out to deep cover! Another breakthrough for UAE, who aren't done yet. Outside off, opened the angles to hoist it into the off side, but scuffed the stroke straight down Kashif's throat

Nibbles the edge and Asalanka has a first-baller! Googly with extra bounce, wide of off but the angle across the left-hander lured him in, and Meiyappan is on a hat-trick!

Hat-trick! Clean through the gate! Oh my! What a stunning way to seal the deal! Sri Lanka's captain propped forward to the googly, perfectly flighted, biting and bouncing past the inside-edge, clobbering the top of the timbers! What an incredible World Cup moment!
