Commentary

  , Imran Khan to Lakmal, 1 run, it's the inswinger this time, nudged behind square leg for a single
  , Imran Khan to Lakmal, no run, fuller delivery moving away outside off, Lakmal is awfully squared up but manages to get bat to ball
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, 1 run, fuller delivery outside off, Kaushal gets forward and outside off and the outside edge runs down to deep third man
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, no run, good length ball outside off, left alone
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, 2 runs, shortish on off stump, skewers it past the outside edge to deep point. Pakistan have gifted the single to the better batsman to get Lakmal on strike. Except the throw from the deep is a bit too enthusiastic. Hits the stumps and the deflection gives Sri Lanka an extra run
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, FOUR, throws the bat at a fuller ball and the outside edge soars over point. With only two wickets left, that might be the best course of action
  , Rahat Ali to Lakmal, no run, back of a length pins Lakmal on the crease. Now he looks the proper tailender. Late to get in line with a quick delivery. Another strike on the thigh, another leg before appeal. No dice
  , Rahat Ali to Lakmal, no run, mild appeal for leg before, but it's pitched outside leg I think. Oh, actually not. Just enough of it was in line. But it would be bouncing over the stumps. Hit way too high
  , Rahat Ali to Lakmal, no run, back of a length on off stump, Lakmal gets an inside edge onto pad. The swing on offer has lifted Rahat. Running in harder, bending his back more
  , Rahat Ali to Lakmal, no run, full and wide outside off, Lakmal shoulders arms
  , Rahat Ali to Chandimal, OUT, review from Pakistan. Big shout for leg before as Rahat gets the inswinger going again! Seems to have pitched in line, hits Chandimal on the knee-roll of the front pad. Bat is nowhere near the ball. Looks terribly close but umpire's call is not out, remember. So it needs to crash into the stumps and crash it does. Three reds, Pakistan have their man
  , Rahat Ali to Chandimal, no run, good work late in the day. Rahat's inswing is a bit too pronounced for Chandimal to connect. Could have been four byes had it not been for Sarfraz leaping to his left and making an excellent take
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, no run, dug in short at 125 kph, no trouble for Kaushal to get under
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, no run, back of a length on off stump, some shape away as well. Kaushal is squared up as he gets an outside edge to point
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, no run, fullish and outside off, slid off the open face to point
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, no run, goes fuller, but a bit wider outside off. Once bitten Kaushal is twice shy. Leaves the ball
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, no run, more swing away and Kaushal is no match for it. Caught in the crease, hanging his bat out.
  , Imran Khan to Chandimal, 1 run, makes him reach out in front of his body. And away from it as well. Single to deep point, but Imran should be encouraged with that ball - a little movement away
  , Rahat Ali to Kaushal, no run, goes short this time to test the tail ender, Kaushal's held his own so far and as per script, ducks
  , Rahat Ali to Kaushal, no run, fuller delivery outside off, shoulders arms
  , Rahat Ali to Chandimal, 1 run, a deep third man was lurking, but Chandimal isn't worried about him. Upper cuts a short ball outside off and gets a single for his trouble
  , Rahat Ali to Chandimal, no run, back of a length on off stump, blocked into the off side
  , Rahat Ali to Chandimal, no run, full on middle, defended
  , Rahat Ali to Chandimal, no run, a shade shortish and outside off, Chandimal shuffles across and taps it to gully
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, no run, back of a length and outside off, blocked
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, FOUR, well, that's always fun. Getting four runs off a leave. He was looking to poke at a fuller ball outside off, then something kicks in and tells him he can leave the ball. But before his muscles respond, the inside edge is taken and the ball scurries past the keeper's left
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, no run, full on off stump, Kaushal clips it to mid-on. Mild excitement as the ball travels in the air for a little way
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, no run, good length ball outside off, defended with soft hands
  , Imran Khan to Kaushal, no run, the length is fine - full - but the line is poor. Slips quite a way down leg. Kaushal goes for a flick, but it's too far from him
  , Imran Khan to Chandimal, 1 run, fullish and outside off, Chandimal is forward with a block and it skims off the open face to deep point
