  • Stumps Day one

    And that's the day! The home side will be very pleased with their performance today, with centuries from Dilshan and Sangakkara. They will look to kick on tomorrow and set the visitors a mammoth total. Pakistan toiled away without much luck, and almost no help from the pitch. They will look to regroup tonight, and come back firing in the morning. Lets just hope that the airhorn stays at home tomorrow.
  • Over 90 Rehman 0-0-0-0-0-0

    300/2The final over is bowled by Abdur Rehman. But the Sri Lankans are sticking to their guns. Its the great wall of Galle out there!And Stumps
  • Over 89 Gul 0-0-0-0-0-0

    300/2 This is almost a formality now as the batsmen look to leave everything now.
  • Over 88 Kahn 0-0-0-0-0-0

    300/2 With two overs left in the day, the tourists will be desperate for a wicket now. The home side has effectively shut up shop now. Another maiden to prove that point.
  • Over 87 Gul 4-0-0-0-0-0

    300/2 That's the three hundred up for Sri Lanka. It's been a great effort from the batsmen, and the coach will be very pleased with this performance.
  • Over 86 Kahn 0-0-0-0-0-0

    296/2 Now Kahn has a go! He's looked brisk in his firat over back, but with little success. Today has definitely belonged to the home side
  • Over 85 Gul 4-1-0-0-0

    296/2 Gul takes the second new ball as Pakistan look for a breakthrough. A loose delivery first up get carved to the boundary. A good comeback though saves the over.
  • Over 84 Ajmal 1-0-0-1-0-2

    291/2 There's the skippers fifty up! Well played!
  • Over 83 Rehman 1-0-0-0-1-0

    286/2 In fact, its sixty two out of a total 83 overs between them. Its definitely not a pace wicket then.
  • Over 82 Ajmal 1-1-0-0-0-2

    284/2 the spin cycle continues as between Ajmal and Rehman, they have bowled more than half of the overs today.
  • Over 81 Rehman 0-0-0-0-0-0

    281/2 There are a lot of tired bodies out on that field now.There has been no respite for the Pakistan fielders today as the blue machine rolls on. Meanwhile, that's two consecutive maidens.
  • Over 80 Ajmal 0-0-0-0-0-0

    281/2 I fear the Pakistanis may be in a spot here. They need wickets, and fast. There is still a lot of batting to come in this Sri Lankan line up. A good maiden from Ajmal
  • Over 79 Rehman 0-1-0-1-01

    281/2 That his fourth hundred in five tests against Pakistan! What a class act! He now has twenty nine centuries overall.
  • Over 78 Ajmal 2-0-0-1-1-0

    278/2 There it is! Sangakkara brings up his ton! a fine innings from a fantasic player!
  • Over 77 Rehman 0-0-1-1-4-0

    274/2 The Sri Lankans will be very happy with the performance of their batsmen today!
  • Over 76 Ajmal 0-0-0-1-0-0

    268/2 Ajmal is back with some venom! He's bowled one that ended up going through Jayawardene's legs! A good over from him.
  • Over 75 Rehman 2-4-0-0-0-0

    268/2 And he's back. And its not good for him. Sanga puts him away nicely. He's moving toward that hundred, and it's looking more and more bleak for the tourists.
  • Over 74 Hafeez 0-1-1-0-1-0

    262/2 As Hafeez bowls another tidy over, the light starts to fade. There are some tall shadows edging across the field.
  • Over 73 Gul 0-0-0-0-0-0

    259/2 A visual of a very bored looking Misbah has just come onto the screen. He's been banned for a game for having a slow over rate. A little harsh if you ask me. Meanwhile, Gul continues to bowl good areas.
  • Over 72 Hafeez 0-1-0-1-1-0

    259/2 Sri Lanka are firmly in control of this innings right now. A combination of good batting and a fairly benign track have helped them get into a commanding position.
