Herath to Abbas, OUT!, OUT! Wicket no. 400 in Tests for Rangana Herath and SRI LANKA WIN BY 21 RUNS AND GO ONE UP IN THE SERIES! And the celebrations resume in the Sri Lankan dressing room. Herath fires in an arm ball around off, Abbas looks to cut it but is a tad late on that shot. Ends up missing the ball and he gets rapped on the back pad right in front of the stumps. Herath begins his celebration and umpire Nigel Llong upholds that by raising the dreaded finger. Abbas opts to take it upstairs. Replays confirm that there's no bat involved. Hawk Eye returns three reds. Thus the on-field call stays! The wily old fox aptly shuts off the game with his 11th scalp.

D Perera to Shah, 2 run, Tossed up outside off, Shah drives it sweetly through covers for a couple. The crowd is behind the home side.

46.4

D Perera to Shah, 1 run, What drama! Perera does everything right apart from overstepping. A heartbreaking moment for the whole of Sri Lanka. Floated on middle, drifting towards the pads. Shah looks to keep it out but gets it off the inner half of the bat towards Mendis at short leg. The youngster dives full length to his right and takes a stunner. He runs in joy and poses for the camera. The replays show that he has overstepped. The Lankans have to cut short their celebrations and have to resume with their bowling! The shoulders droop for the visitors. How costly will this be?

46.3

D Perera to Shah, 0 run, Uses his feet and works it off the inner half to mid-wicket.

45.3

R Herath to Abbas, 0 run, Tossed up around off, Abbas tries to defend it but misses. The first slip fielder takes it and appeals but the umpire shakes his head. The replays show that the noise was of the bat hitting the pad.

45.2

Herath to M Amir, OUT!, OUT! Rangi, you beauty! 9th 10-wicket haul for Rangana Herath, this is also his 100th Test wicket against Pakistan, the most for any bowler! He has turned the match upside down. Tosses this one nicely outside off and gets it to spin in substantially out of the rough. Amir prods forward, feels he has it covered but the judgement is not good. He has left a big gap between his bat and pad and the ball goes through that to knock the stumps over.

R Herath to Amir, 4 run, FOUR! Brave shot! Tossed up outside off, Amir uses his feet and hits it over the mid off fielder to find the fence. A very crucial boundary this. The hosts need 27 more to win with two wickets in hand.

43.5

R Herath to Amir, 0 run, Fullish delivery, kept out.

43.1

R Herath to Shah, 0 run, Not Out! There is no glove or bat involved and Sri Lanka lose both their reviews! Down the leg side, Shah looks to tickle it past the keeper but seems to have missed it. Dickwella collects it well and appeals vociferously. Herath is confident too. However, the umpire stays put. Chandimal after a chat with his bowler and keeper decides to take the review. Time for the replays. It came off the thigh pad actually. A review in desperation.
