    2.6 bowled'im! Amir roars, a mix of aggression and frustration on his face. And it's Gunathilaka, the in-form batsman. Was a length ball around off, Gunathilaka looks to smash it down the ground, gets an inside edge on to the stumps 24/1
    3.6 length ball around off and drifting in, Samarawickrama was stuck in his crease, looks to flick it on the leg side and misses. Trapped right in front and an easy decision for the umpire. Would have gone on to hit middle and leg 28/2
    4.6 fuller around off, looked like another slower ball, Rajapaksa flicks it aerially towards deep-backward square leg, but a brilliant catch by Asif Ali there at the boundary, takes it overhead and balances himself to stay inside. Dropping sitters and taking blinders, that's Pakistan for you 30/3
    7.6 length ball around off, opens the face to work it towards deep backward point, they are coming back for the second but the throw is flat and Sarfaraz whips off the bails. Perera was dragging his bat but was well short of his crease, as replays confirm 58/4
    not out
    17.6 taken at sweeper cover! Lovely execution of the dive from Fakhar. Short of a length outside off. Looks to carve it through the off side, ends up floating it some ten yards in front of the fielder. He sprints in and to his left before jumping out and grabbing it aerially. Slides neatly to hold on 134/5
    18.6 taken at mid-off! Ifthikar pedals backwards and to his left and keeps his balance nicely. Full ball at the stumps. He looks to lift this straight but the bat turns in his hand and he ends up slicing it just over the fielder 140/6
    19.6 sent upstairs for the run out and this should be out too. Yes it is. Sticks to the pattern, a wicket off the sixth ball! But a lovely ball before that. A yorker right up at middle stump. He can't do more than keep that from hitting the stumps. It rolls near the crease and Shinwari is quickly onto it to hit the stumps with a flick 147/7

    0.1 what a start, what a delivery. Length ball on the stumps, shapes back in to beat the bat, hits the batsman on the thigh before crashing on to the stumps 0/1
    11.6 taken low to his right! Kumara's persistence and consistency has paid off. He's been very disciplined today. Slams this back of a length and just outside off. Babar backs away, makes room, and tries to chop this down to third man. The outside edge dips to Sadeera's right and he hangs on cleanly 76/2
    15.1 you could sense it coming! The wrong'un. Didn't take too much nous to predict Haris would be running down the pitch. Wanindu lands this wide outside off and turns it away from a length. It's also flat, so that languid jump down the pitch is not good enough. Quite a way down the pitch and he isn't coming back in from there 94/3
    17.6 and now he's through him. Sri Lanka's newest star has put them on the brink. Short of a length, googly. Sarfraz static and upright this time - but still playing a slog. It's past the inside edge and tonks the top of off 111/6
    16.4 he's got good bat on this, but he's also picked out long-on to precision. It's another slower ball from Kumara - he cuts down 20-30kphs on those from his average in the mid-140s. This one is floated up full on middle stump. Imad makes a lot of room and drills this over the bowler, flat. Long-on takes it with a reverse-cup with a couple of strides to his right 103/4
    17.1 dragged it straight to long-on! Arguably Pakistan's biggest hitter is gone second ball. This is a googly, but lobbed up very slowly outside off. He stays put in the crease because that's in the zone, but it appears he's too eager to send this a long way. The loopy delivery ends up coming off the toe-end and it's Wanindu again, clogging it up for Pakistan 104/5
