169.3OUTTalha to Dilruwan Perera, out Caught by Junaid Khan!! Oh dear! Perera has thrown away the chance of what could have been a magnificient debut ton. A bit unlucky there too. It was banged short by Talha, Perera goes back and pulls it hard, the ball goes off the top-edge ballooning in the air at fine leg where Junaid takes a good catch. Dilruwan Perera c Junaid Khan b Talha 95(247) [4s-12 6s-2]423/9
169.2FOURTalha to Dilruwan Perera, FOUR, cracking shot! It was a full toss outside off, Perera gets in the stance and drives it on the up to the deep extra cover fence423/8
167.4FOURTalha to Eranga, FOUR, back of a length delivery outside off, Eranga goes after it without moving his feet, the ball takes the edge and flies past the outstretched hands of the third slip fielder416/8
161.3FOURAjmal to Dilruwan Perera, FOUR, Perera is showing his range here, this was short and outside off, Perera goes back and cuts it in front of square on the off-side, the timing takes it to the fence. That brings up the 400 as well401/8
161.1SIXAjmal to Dilruwan Perera, SIX, tossed up outside off, Perera comes down the track and lofts it beautifully over long on, the key to that shot was the extension of the arms, he was not to the pitch of the ball but still went through with the shot395/8
160.5FOURJunaid Khan to Eranga, FOUR, short and outside off, it just sat up there to be put away and even the No. 10 does not miss out, he gets on top of the bounce and cuts it to the sweeper cover fence389/8

This was a good length delivery just a smidge outside off, Azhar Ali backs away and aims for a reckless hoick, the ball grazes the outside edge and carries at a good height to the keeper. Actually, the ball had kissed the top of off before nestling into the gloves of the keeper but the bails did not come off. Azhar Ali c P Jayawardene b Lakmal 103(137) [4s-6]295/5
