Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
48.5OUTAjmal to Malinga, out Caught by U Akmal!! The doosra does the trick. Malinga swings across the line but gets a thick outside edge. Umar Akmal picks a sharp catch behind the wickets. Ajmal's 4th ends the innings. Malinga c U Akmal b Ajmal 0(5)225/10
48OUTJunaid Khan to Kithuruwan Vithanage, out Caught by Maqsood!! That's a very well judged catch in the deep. Looked like a slower one from Junaid Khan. Vithanage tries to go over the mid wicket boundary but miscues completely. Maqsood kept his cool in the deep and settled under the skier without losing balance, just inside the ropes. Kithuruwan Vithanage c Maqsood b Junaid Khan 27(26) [4s-4]225/9
47DROPPEDAjmal to Kithuruwan Vithanage, no run, catch dropped by Umar Akmal. The slow, doosra from Ajmal. Vithanage looks to drive hard but gets an inside edge. Akmal does not react in time and grasses the chance222/8
46.5FOURAjmal to Kithuruwan Vithanage, FOUR, pushed through quick by Ajmal on middle and leg. Vithanage was trying to sweep it hard and gets a thick inside edge. The fine leg was up in the circle and the ball just sped past him222/8
46.2FOURAjmal to Kithuruwan Vithanage, FOUR, that's another nice reverse sweep from Kithuruwan Vithanage. It was outside off and he plays it with the turn and over the head of the man at point215/8
44.2OUTAjmal to Senanayake, out Bowled!! Ajmal is on a hat-trick! That was beautifully bowled by Ajmal. Floated up from round the wicket, pitching on middle and turning in to go between bat and pad to hit the middle stump. That's just too good for Senanayake and Ajmal bags his 3rd of the game. What a wonderful year he's having Senanayake b Ajmal 0(1)210/8
