65OUTAjmal to Mathews, out Stumped!! Pakistan have finally managed to end Sri Lanka's innings. Ajmal beat Mathews in the flight with this flatter delivery, the batsman was trying to work it on the on-side and gets an outside edge, Akmal doesn't grab it properly but the fact that Mathews was a long way down the track, enabled him to dive forward, pick up the ball again and fire it back onto the stump. End of a great knock from the Sri Lankan skipper. Mathews st A Akmal b Ajmal 91(127) [4s-15]204/10
64.5FOURAjmal to Mathews, FOUR, reverse sweep this time and he makes good contact. Fetches the flighted delivery from outside off and sends it square of the wicket on the off-side204/9
63.4FOURBhatti to Mathews, FOUR, doesn't try to do anything fancy, just hops and uses the pace on this short of length delivery and turns it through backward square leg, it has enough legs to get to the fence199/9
59.4FOURJunaid Khan to Mathews, FOUR, outside edge found but it goes between second slip and gully. Good length delivery slanted across the right-hander, Mathews pushes away from the body and gets a thick edge and goes past the ball-watching fielders at the slip cordon to the third man fence189/9
58.3OUTAjmal to Eranga, out Caught by A Akmal!! Akmal has hung on to a very good catch. Not easy those thick edges. Ajmal finally gets a wicket in the game. It was shortish and wide outside off stump, looked like the doosra as it went further away from the right-hander with the angle from round the wicket, Eranga went for the cut but could only manage a thick outside edge which is safely taken by the keeper. Pakistan have managed to break this record stand. Eranga c A Akmal b Ajmal 14(44) [4s-2]185/9
54.3OTHERAjmal to Eranga, no run, flatter delivery on the leg stump, Eranga looks to whip but the ball brushed the front pad before going on to hit the bat, they review in vain181/8

129.1SIXHerath to Misbah, out Caught by Sangakkara at long on!! Excellent catch from Sangakkara at long on. This was tossed up invitingly by Herath, Misbah was down on his knees, he was looking to heave it over long on, gets a lot of height, but not the distance. Sangakkara settles underneath it and accepts the skier. Pakistan have been bowled out for 383. Misbah c Sangakkara b Herath 135(306) [4s-16 6s-1]389/10
128.5FOURMathews to Junaid Khan, FOUR, short of a length and well outside off, Junaid Khan gets on top of the bounce and steers it past the slip cordon for a boundary383/9
128.3OTHERMathews to Misbah, leg byes, 1 run, short of a length and angling into Misbah, he shuffles across the line and looked to nudge it towards the on-side, misses and is struck on the pads. The height was the only issue. Replays show that the ball was going well over the stumps. Mathews was adamant and asked for another review, a wasted one in the end. They have no reviews remaining now. The original call stands, another good decision from umpire Kettleborough379/9
128.2OTHERMathews to Misbah, no run, on a good length and a hint of shape back into Misbah, he was half forward as he looked to defend, gets struck just above the knee roll, but he had managed to get himself outside the line of off-stump378/9
127.5OUTHerath to Rahat Ali, out Bowled!! That one went through the gate and Pakistan have suddenly found themselves nine down. This was tossed up on off and spins back in slightly, Rahat Ali was way too late in bringing his bat down, the ball went through the gap between bat and pad, crashes into the off-stump. Herath finds himself on a hat-trick. Misbah is in danger of getting stranded. Rahat Ali b Herath 0(1)378/9
127.4OUTHerath to Ajmal, out Lbw!! This was flighted and on middle, Ajmal was lunging forward as he looked to defend, the ball misses the inside edge and hits him low on the thigh pad, the impact was on middle and the ball was crashing into the stumps. A simple call for umpire Oxenford. Ajmal has a chat with his captain before walking back to the hut. Ajmal lbw b Herath 0(9)378/8
