32.1OUTHerath to Irfan, out Bowled!! Herath needed just one ball to finish off things. Ugly mow from Irfan, this was tossed up and on the off-stump line, Irfan lost his patience, goes for a big heave over mid-wicket and misses. The off-stump is pegged back and Pakistan have been bundled out for 102. Fawad stares at his partner in disgust. Irfan b Herath 5(9) [4s-1]102/10
31.3FOURMalinga to Irfan, FOUR, Irfan gets lucky, Malinga gets the yorker right, at the base of middle, Irfan somehow gets some bat on that and the inside edge races away past the leg stump, brings up Pakistan's 100101/9
30.3FOURT Perera to Fawad Alam, FOUR, nicely played by Alam, makes room to a good short ball, opens the face of the bat at the last moment, uses the pace and runs it past the keeper for a boundary95/9
28.2OUTT Perera to Ajmal, out Caught by M Jayawardene!! Another one falls to the short ball, poor thinking from Ajmal. This was banged in short and just outside off, Ajmal had top-edged one in the previous over, that one went over the keeper, this top-edge goes straight up in the air and is swallowed by Mahela at square leg. Fawad Alam stands forlorn at the other end. Ajmal c M Jayawardene b T Perera 6(15) [4s-1]88/9
26.5FOURT Perera to Ajmal, FOUR, that's handy for Pakistan, Ajmal didn't look convincing though, this was banged in short and on the stumps, Ajmal was looking to help it on its way, gets a top-edge over the keeper for a boundary86/8
24.2OUTT Perera to Riaz, out Caught by Sangakkara!! Pakistan are falling apart here. Riaz isn't one bit happy with the decision, but he can't challenge it either. This was short and held its line outside off, Riaz pokes away from his body. Was there an edge on that? Sangakkara was sure, so was the umpire whose finger went up straightaway. Riaz looks stunned and makes a slow walk back to the hut. Replays aren't conclusive, Riaz might have been unlucky there. Riaz c Sangakkara b T Perera 0(2)77/8

18.2FOURAfridi to Dilshan, FOUR, Sri Lanka win the series 2-1 and Dilshan signs off in style by registering his 38th ODI fifty! Short and just outside off stump, Dilshan cuts it past backward point and takes his helmet off to celebrate104/3
17.5OUTAjmal to M Jayawardene, out Caught by Hafeez!! What a time to get a wicket! Mahela can't believe it! He was actually trying to leave this doosra, but it's gone off the face and straight into the hands of first slip. Well disguised by Ajmal! M Jayawardene c Hafeez b Ajmal 26(32) [4s-3]100/3
14.3FOURRiaz to Dilshan, FOUR, a thick outside but Dilshan won't mind! Full and slanted acros the right-hander, Dilshan went hard at this one and hence the edge went well wide of the man who is wide at first slip89/2
14.1FOURRiaz to M Jayawardene, FOUR, Jayawardene is not missing out on any of the short deliveries. Rocks back, rolls his wrists and pulls it along the ground to the deep backward square leg84/2
12.1FOURIrfan to M Jayawardene, FOUR, short and just outside off stump, Jayawardene gets on top of the bounce and cuts very well through point to pick up four more73/2
9.5FOURRiaz to M Jayawardene, FOUR, wow! Mahela delights the crowd with a lovely square-drive. Overpitched and in the slot, Mahela leans nicely forward and times it sweetly63/2
