9.4 up goes the finger! But Gunathilaka reviews. He looked less than impressed at the initial call, and it may have pitched on and around leg stump as Gunathilaka unfurled the sweep and missed. It is clipping leg on umpire's call! The verdict stands! 84/1
    14.4 a bottom-handed flog to mid-off, and Shadab's shy is pinpoint! Fernando set off for an instinctive single, but was never at the races as the ball reached the fielder too quickly, and the fielder reached the stumps with equal speed! A decent innings, never really got up to full speed. But he's given his side the platform to have a real go now 120/2
    15.6 perfect yorker! It was going to take a special delivery to end an increasingly special innings, round the wicket, roaring into the toes, and up goes the finger as Rajapaksa fails to get his bat down in time. Still, he's made a fine first impression 135/3
    18.1 smashed out to deep long-on, but he's not got hold of this! A flog through the line once more, and there's a collision as Umar Akmal lines up the catch! He's clung on in the end, but that could have been very nasty indeed... instead it's a timely wicket! 153/4
    18.2 cramped for room from round the wicket, and it's two wickets in two balls! A flaccid flapped slog into the covers, comes off the splice and lobs to Shehzad ... suddenly 180 seems a long way away! 153/5

    1.5 there's the riposte from Pradeep! Good length, angling in and straightening away outside off, Babar looks to drive on the up, but Pradeep finds some extra bounce and movement to foil Babar's plans. Nicked off to Banuka the debutant 13/1
    4.2 Chopped on. Low-key returns for both Umar and Shehzad. Shortish and outside off from over the stumps, Shehzad, picked ahead of Fakhar, camps on the back foot. This is neither a punch or a cut. He plays a shot that's somewhere in between and drags a thick inside edge back onto the stumps 22/3
    1.6 Umar Akmal bags a golden duck on return! This looks plumb, and Umar knows it, as he drags himself off the field. Full and angling in, swinging in towards middle, Umar plays all around his front pad and Pradeep traps him. Sri Lanka have separated Umar and Shehzad so very quickly 13/2
    13.2 bowled'em. Sarfaraz has been put out of his misery. This was coming, wasn't it? He marches down the track, goes for a big heave-ho, and does not make any contact. Hasranga nails the stumps with a straighter one 76/5
    11.3 Awful mix-up between the wickets: sort of encapsulates the chase from Pakistan. Near yorker on off stump, jammed away to mid-off's left. Sarfaraz takes off in search of a quick single, but Iftikhar isn't interested. Both batsman are hustling towards the crease at the striker's end. The throw is to the non-striker's end and Udana flips the bails off. Sarfaraz comes first in this little dash at the striker's end, Iftikhar has to exit 68/4
    15.2 liberally tossed up on off stump, Asif Ali aims to launch it downtown. He does not get hold of it though and winds up slicing it in the air. Danushka, SL's first-innings hero, runs across to his left and grabs the catch 87/7
    14.4 Hasaranga pouches it at mid-off. Full-toss outside off, Imad aims to launch it over him, no dice, he simply slaps it to the man there 85/6
    16.4 full-toss on the pads, picked up and hit into the lap of Danushka at deep square leg. Ashraf adds to Pakistan's collapse. The umpires check for a possible front-foot no-ball, but Pradeep is okay on that count as well. Ashraf has to keep going 96/8
    17.3 Shadab holes out to Avishka at deep midwicket. Slower short ball outside off, Shadab, having shuffled across off, slogs this back-of-the-hand variation to the outfielder 101/9
    17.4 That is that! A second-string SL side tramples the No.1 T20I team. Udana sews up an emphatic win for the visitors. Amir makes some swinging room and mis-hits another slower ball into the lap of long-off 101/10
