Zahoor Khan402626.50103000
19.3 to C Karunaratne, holed out to deep cover! This is a magnificent final over, pace off once more, outside off, Karunaratne was deep in his crease, hoping to spring through his drill down the ground, but the ball skewed off an outside edge, and the new man will be on strike, under the new regulations. 150/7
19.5 to P Nissanka, stunning take at mid-off! That's one for the cameras as Nissanka launches through another inside-out slam on the up through the off side. Basil dived with both hands, like a goalkeeper reading the penalty in a shoot-out, and snaffled the fast flat chance horizontal to the ground!. 151/8
Aayan Afzal Khan301615.3371000
15.4 to PWH de Silva, he's not got hold of this one! An attempt to put bat through ball, high down the ground, but long-off has oodles of time to steady himself and swallow the chance. Sri Lanka are officially in freefall now!. 120/6
Aryan Lakra302418.0053000
4.4 to BKG Mendis, Rapped on the pads, and Mendis is gone! Another one that skids on with the arm from Aryan, and Mendis pays the price for staying back. He looks for the cut but is struck on the back pad right in front of off stump. Doesn't even bother reviewing; that was plumb.. 42/1
Karthik Meiyappan401934.75120100
14.4 to PBB Rajapaksa, hacked out to deep cover! Another breakthrough for UAE, who aren't done yet. Outside off, opened the angles to hoist it into the off side, but scuffed the stroke straight down Daud's throat. 117/3
14.5 to KIC Asalanka, nibbles the edge and Asalanka has a first-baller! Googly with extra bounce, wide of off but the angle across the left-hander lured him in, and Meiyappan is on a hat-trick!. 117/4
14.6 to MD Shanaka, hat-trick! Clean through the gate! Oh my! What a stunning way to seal the deal! Sri Lanka's captain propped forward to the googly, perfectly flighted, biting and bouncing past the inside-edge, clobbering the top of the timbers! What an incredible World Cup moment!. 117/5

Pramod Madushan301414.66122010
5.3 to Chirag Suri, Madushan gets in on the act now! The stumps are toppled once more! This was a length ball, and Suri looks to make room. Madushan follows him, and the attempted inside out drive leads to a thick outside edge that sees both middle and off stump flattened.. 21/4
Maheesh Theekshana3.101524.73102000
13.5 to KP Meiyappan, skims past the outside edge, and stumped by a mile! Ran straight past the carrom ball, and didn't even try to regain his ground as Mendis whipped off the bails.. 52/8
17.1 to Junaid Siddique, hacked through the line, Nissanka seals the contest with a comfortable take at long-on!. 73/10
Dushmantha Chameera3.501533.91160100
2.2 to Muhammad Waseem, Cleans him up! Length outside off and Waseem goes for the big drive, but only manages a chunky inside edge on to the base of middle and off stump, uprooting both.. 15/1
2.6 to Aryan Lakra, Bang goes the leg stump! This was just too good for Aryan, who's beaten by good old fashioned pace and seam. Chameera hits a great length and Aryan, with little to no foot movement, goes for a straight drive. Having pitched on leg, it straightens just enough to go through a chasm between bat a pad.. 17/2
4.2 to CP Rizwan, And he's got another one! This time it's a simple catch chipped to wide mid-off. This was 140kph, on a good length, not full enough to drive but Rizwan goes for it anyway and pays the price.. 19/3
Chamika Karunaratne201407.0052000
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva41832.00170000
9.5 to V Aravind, Big appeal, as the googly looks to have struck the front pad on the forward defence. Umpire says not out, but Sri Lanka want to review. This is very close as it looks to have struck the pad just before the bat. And ball tracking shows that indeed it's three reds. What a fantastic review from Sri Lanka!. 36/6
11.3 to Kashif Daud, pinned by the googly, another one goes! Tight lines, shaping into the stumps, Daud lines up a wild pull, misses by a mile and is almost walking as the ball thumps his knee-roll. Would have taken out middle and leg. 42/7
14.6 to Aayan Afzal Khan, best to bypass the fielders! Tosses up the googly, lures the flat wipe, dismantles the stumps. A valiant knock from the young Aayan, but just one to go now.... 56/9
Dasun Shanaka1.10716.0030010
8.2 to Basil Hameed, Oh and it's the softest of dismissals, as the Sri Lankan captain strikes! This was a gentle length ball on the middle and leg which Basil should have little trouble clipping onside. He however only manages a leading edge that loops up high to midwicket.. 30/5
