48.5OUTMalinga to Bhatti, out Bowled!! 5-fer for Malinga and he is mobbed by his team-mates. Its all over for Misbah's men. Sri Lanka win this thriller. Bhatti backs away and exposes all three stumps, in a quest to flay it through the off-side but Malinga shatters the off-stump with another pin-point yorker. The blone Slinger punches the air and gives vent to his delight. Bhatti b Malinga 18(13) [4s-2]284/10
48.2OUTMalinga to Ajmal, out Lbw!! Malinga dishes out his signature toe-crusher and that turns out to be too hot for Ajmal. Sri Lanka edge ahead in this see-saw clash. This was a searing yorker length ball dipping in, Ajmal looks to jam it out but his effort is in vain as he is struck in front of the leg-stump. The umpire raises his dreaded finger to award Malinga his fourth scalp. Ajmal lbw b Malinga 10(4) [4s-2]281/9
48FOURLakmal to Ajmal, FOUR, pushed through outside off, Ajmal exploits Lakmal's pace and slashes it to the third man fence280/8
47.5FOURLakmal to Ajmal, FOUR, Ajmal tries to pull off a Dilscoop, he is near where near Dilshan's class but manages to clumsily scoop it to the fine leg fence276/8
47.1FOURLakmal to Bhatti, FOUR, rifled to extra cover! This was overpitched and outside off, Bhatti exploits the width on offer as he clears his front leg and crashes it past covers267/8
46.5OUTMalinga to Umar Gul, out Caught by de Silva!! leading edge and Chaturanga de Silva snaffles it. Jubilation in the Sri Lankan camp. This was a length delivery on the stumps, Umar Gul looks to tuck it away to the leg-side, he manages a leading edge that balloons over towards backward point, where de Silva judges it to perfection. Umar Gul c de Silva b Malinga 2(6)262/8
