4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, wee bit of width. Fakhar Zaman throws his bat at it, sends it roaring through point

4

Fernando to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, he has had enough. Steps down this time, makes room as well. Throws his bat at this length delivery and hits in the air but well in the gap at cover

4

Fernando to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, width again, and it's overpitched too. Zaman squeezes it away through extra-cover

4

Fernando to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, very elegant looking punch down the ground. Didn't go hard at the full ball, just focussed on the timing and offered a dead-straight bat to beat mid-on

OT

to Fakhar Zaman, 1 run, very tight single after pushing the ball to mid-on. He had to put in the dive, but would have still been short had there been a direct-hit

4

Fernando to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, too full, too wide. It lands right under Zaman's bat before he laces it through the covers

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, it's a similar delivery, but Zaman is much smarter this time. He waits on the ball, and then opens the bat-face to run it fine of point. Brilliant timing again, and it runs away

6

Perera to Imam-ul-Haq, SIX, mighty impressive hit. Perera had shortened his length after watching Imam-ul-Haq charge, but he still goes through with the lofted drive over mid-on and connects splendidly. This is an incredible hit

4

Perera to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, gets it away fine for four. Awful delivery pretty far down leg, and Zaman only had to get some bat on it. Pretty well done

4

Perera to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, spanks the pull shot to the deep backward square boundary. At his pace, Perera is just asking for punishment by bowling short. And Zaman is not the one to spare any

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, clears his front leg and whacks the overpitched delivery through extra-cover. He's now looking to finish this off quick

W

to Fakhar Zaman, out Caught by Dickwella!! The moment Fakhar Zaman got an edge, he exchanged a gulilty glance with the keeper. Dickwella though went up instantly and forced his skipper to go for the review for he knows Fakhar Zaman nicked it. A quick skiddy delivery outside off, Fakhar Zaman rocked back and cut late; got the thiniest of edges to the keeper. Fakhar Zaman c Dickwella b 48(47) [4s-7]

OT

to Imam-ul-Haq, 1 run, appeal for run out but Fahim Ashraf was well in. Imam pushed this into the on-side and called his partner through for a quick single, the throw from short mid-wicket was sharp and flat, but Fahim Ashraf put in a dive that helped him get home. All safe

4

to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, short and wide, Imam latches on it with a fierce cut behind point

4

to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, cut away and that's another whitewash for Sri Lanka. Their third time in a calendar year, that's some embarassing record. Pakistan dressing room is filled with refreshingly effervescent images. Skipper Sarfraz takes his side for a stroll across the circumference of the stadium. Their fans are all pumped, hurling every bit of their (happy) emotions with their hands aloft

W

Khan to Samarawickrama, out Bowled!! He strikes early. Samarawickrama's promotion up the order has failed. Pushed away from the body as the ball nipped back in a touch, got an inside edge and it clattered the stumps. What a horrible start for Sri Lanka. Samarawickrama b Khan 0(3)

W

Khan to Chandimal, out Caught by Sarfraz!! Khan is a on a hat-trick now. Two in two for him. Spears it full outside off, the angle takes it further away from Chandimal who fishes for it. Thick edge and Sarfraz dives to his right to take in front of first slip. Chandimal c Sarfraz b Khan 0(1)

4

Khan to Tharanga, FOUR, hat-trick ball has been dispatched to the cover fence. Fuller and outside off. Tharanga leans and cracks it along the carpet

W

Khan to Tharanga, out Bowled!! So what if has not got a hat-trick, at least he has the third wicket of this innings. And of a man who denied him the hat-trick. Angles in and then the ball moves a bit off the deck as well. Tharanga plays all around it, leaves the gap between the pad and the bat. Middle-stump is uprooted and Tharanga walks with his head down. Tharanga b Khan 8(9) [4s-1]

W

Khan to Dickwella, out Lbw!! This is what dreams are made of. Khan has dismantled the Sri Lankan top order in two overs. Another inswinger and it has got rid of Dickwella, who tried to work around a ball that kept coming in. Crashed him well below the knee-roll. The umpire took a while but gave in to the appeal. Dickwella lbw b Khan 0(2)

4

Khan to Thirimanne, FOUR, serves him the width outside off. Thirimanne cracks the drive through cover. No protection in the deep and it races away

4

Ashraf to Siriwardana, FOUR, Siriwardana places this little drive through point. Used the angle across him to effect that with ease

W

Khan to Siriwardana, out Caught by Fakhar Zaman!! Khan has taken a fifer and he has not even completed four overs. This one courtesy a loose shot from Siriwardana who goes after a fuller ball outside off. Does not keep it down and ends up hitting it straight to the fielder at cover-point. Siriwardana c Fakhar Zaman b Khan 6(13) [4s-1]

4

Khan to Thirimanne, FOUR, beautifully driven through the covers. His front foot got across nicely on the shot, and the ball was full enough to be put away

4

Ali to Thirimanne, FOUR, pitched up around off, flicked to the left of mid-on where an extraordinarily clumsy dive from Wasim allows the ball through

W

Ali to Thirimanne, out Caught by Sarfraz!! The little bit of resistance, which this partnership was offering, has now ended. Ali doesn't take long. Back of length just outside off, Thirimanne tries running it down to third man but by presenting just an angled bat, he left himself vulnerable to the edge. It carries around shin height to the keeper. Trademark celebration from Ali. Thirimanne c Sarfraz b Ali 19(31) [4s-3]

6

Wasim to Prasanna, SIX, Prasanna knew what was coming. Lined himself up for the biggie...clears the front leg and slogs it many-a-mile over mid-wicket

4

Ali to Thisara Perera, FOUR, a firm push, that's it... Ali's pace takes care of the rest. Slightly overpitched, Perera pushes with a straight bat face which skims past the bowler and to the left of mid-off

W

Ali to Thisara Perera, out Prasanna Run Out!! Prasanna walks back gutted. Perera tapped this in front of backward point and took off, Prasanna was a bit late to take off and could have gotten away with this had he made some effort to dive. Wasn't to be. He ran casually and didn't ground his bat in time. Shadab's too good a fielder at backward point and he threw it sideways while on the move. Too good a direct hit that. Prasanna run out (Shadab Khan) 16(34) [6s-1]

4

Ali to Thisara Perera, FOUR, driven on the up and to the left of short cover. Got it off the middle and picked the gap to perfection

6

Khan to Thisara Perera, SIX, gets underneath a floaty delivery and dispatches it high and over long-on. Muscled!

4

Khan to Thisara Perera, FOUR, flat. Short. Goodbye. Perera rocks back and butchers it flat over mid-wicket, just a couple of bounces and over the ropes

W

Khan to Thisara Perera, out Caught by Fahim Ashraf!! One shot too many for Thisara Perera, who for sometime now, was going after Khan. Kudos to the bowler for keeping his kill and not backing off from flighting the ball. This one is slightly quicker and goes across Thisara Perera, who swings only to slice it high in the air. Long-off runs in towards extra cover and reverse-cups it. Was running into the direction of sun and did well to keep his eyes on the ball. Thisara Perera c Fahim Ashraf b Khan 25(29) [4s-3 6s-1]

W

Khan to Vandersay, out Lbw!! Googly spun in sharply this time. Vandersay did not read it at all. Was going back to cut with the turn, the ball thudded low on the pad, while evading the bat completely. Sarfraz was a little skeptical going for the review but gave in to his bowler's demands. Sri Lanka's miseries have no end. Vandersay lbw b Khan 2(10)

4

Khan to Chameera, FOUR, fuller ball angled in on off. Chameera throws his bat at it, ends up carving over the point region. Two fielders chase it, not good enough to cut it down

4

Khan to Vishwa Fernando, FOUR, Sri Lanka go past 100. Short ball outside off. Vishwa Fernando waits and slaps it wide of extra cover. Long-off has no chance

W

Ali to Chameera, out Bowled!! Length ball on top of off. Chameera wants to work into the on-side, gets an inside edge that crashes the off-stump. Sri Lanka are done and dusted for 103. Chameera b Ali 11(15) [4s-1]
