Over 3.6 HMRKB Herath bowls a tossed up delivery to Sami Aslam, out Caught by Karunaratne!!Aslam was prodding forward in defence, doesn't cover for the angle and gets a thick edge - to the left of Karunaratne at first slip, he slides across and gobbles it up

Over 4.3 RAS Lakmal bowls a good length delivery to Azhar Ali, out Caught by Dickwella!! Azhar play across the line, the bat-face closed and the edge flew to the right of the keeper.

Over 10.4 Dilruwan Perera bowls a tossed up delivery to Shan Masood, out Caught by Kaushal Silva!! Masood came down the track, doesn't get close to the ball and then opts to pad it away, the ball deflected off the pads, took a bit of bat and lobbed in the air towards cover. Silva ran across to his right, dives and pouches the catch

Over 16.4 Dilruwan Perera bowls a tossed up delivery to Babar Azam, out Caught by Dickwella!! Azam came forward to defend - playing inside the line. The ball straightened enough to catch the feather. Excellent take by Dickwella.

Over 17.5 HMRKB Herath bowls a tossed up delivery to Asad Shafiq, out Caught by Karunaratne!! Hits one of the cracks and leaps up at Shafiq. He made room to cut - the extra bounce does him. Ends up edging it to first slip.

Over 33.2 HMRKB Herath bowls a tossed up delivery to Sarfraz Ahmed, out Stumped!! Sarfraz was beaten in the flight. After stepping out, he wanted to work it through the on-side. The ball brushes his back pad and Dickwella does the rest

Over 38.1 Dilruwan Perera bowls a tossed up delivery to Haris Sohail, out Lbw!!  Sohail was stuck in his crease. He was neither on the back foot, nor full-heartedly on the front foot. The ball spins away a tad, misses the outside edge and gets hit on the back pad.

Over 39.3 HMRKB Herath bowls a tossed up delivery to Hasan Ali, out Bowled!! Hasan Ali is bowled around his legs.Ali moves across to sweep and misses a full ball that pitches just outside leg and crashes into the stumps.

Over 45.2 HMRKB Herath bowls a tossed up delivery to Mohammad Amir, out Bowled!! Amir was lunging forward on the defensive push, created a small gap between bat and pad, the ball snuck through and rattled the stumps
