Over 13.1 Gulbadin Naib bowls a good length delivery to Dhananjaya de Silva, out D de Silva Run Out!! 1 run completed. This slower ball was glided down to the third man and Dhananjaya was always keen on the second, but his partner wasn't. Tharanga was ball-watching and he had no clue of his partner whereabouts. And while all of this was happening, the throw came in at the striker's end and Shehzad was quick to whip the bails.

Over 19.5 Rashid Khan bowls a tossed up delivery to Kusal Perera, out Bowled!! A quick delivery to start with, it was nicely looped up and dipped under Perera's cross bat slog, the batsman clearly wasn't ball watching and he just took his chances

Over 20.2 Gulbadin Naib bowls a good length delivery to WU Tharanga,  out Caught by Asghar Afghan!! Tharanga bends forward and chips it straight to the man at mid-off and he makes no mistake.

Over 27.1 Mujeeb Ur Rahman bowls a tossed up delivery to Shehan Jayasuriya, out Jayasuriya Run Out!! 1 run completed. Jayasuriya clipped a full ball on the leg through mid-wicket. Mathews ran the first run casually and called his partner for his second run, and then raised his hand to signal no. Jayasuriya was late to spot it and by the time he turned around to make his ground, the bails were dislodged.

Over 34.6 Mohammad Nabi bowls a tossed up delivery to AD Mathews, out Caught by Rashid Khan!! Mathews dances down, fails to reach the pitch of the ball but still goes through with the shot. He neither finds the elevation nor the distance and ends up hitting it straight to Rashid at long-on.

Over 35.3 Mujeeb Ur Rahman bowls a quicker arm ball to Dasun Shanaka, out Bowled!! Shanaka fails to read it off the hands. And by the time, he reads it off the pitch, it was too late. He panics at the last moment, his bat comes down the wrong line and it smashes the stumps.

Over 38.2 Mohammad Nabi bowls a quicker arm ball to Akila Dananjaya, out Bowled!! It was at the stumps, Dananjaya charges down the track and went for a wild heave across the line. There was no contact from the bat and it clatters the stumps.

Over 40.2 Gulbadin Naib bowls a good length delivery to Thisara Perera, out Bowled!! Perera stands tall and looks to swing across the line but the ball beats the bat and hits the middle stump.

Over 41.2 Rashid Khan bowls a quicker arm ball to SL Malinga, out Lbw!! Malinga attempts to sweep this googly but is trapped on the shin right in front of off. The Umpire raises the finger.
