    61.5 Yasir Shah to Oshada Fernando, out, OUT! That is a very good catch by Asad Shafiq and the last recognized Sri Lankan batsman is gone! Yasir strikes but this is more due to the fielder. Landed outside off, Oshada goes back and looks to be a bit cheeky, attempting to run this down to third man. The ball travels quickly but Asad Shafiq at first slip reacts swiftly to pouch it!

    60.3 Naseem Shah to Vishwa Fernando, no run, Oohh… almost a hat-trick! A length ball, right in line of the stumps, Vishwa backs away and looks like he is going to be cleaned up. But at the last moment, he gets his bat down and blocks it in front of short mid-wicket!

  • 10:33 AM IST

    Vishwa Fernando comes in at number 10, replacing Embuldeniya. It is the HAT-TRICK BALL! Three slips, one gully, a leg slip, a leg gully, a silly mid off, a silly mid on and a short leg. What a field!

  • 10:33 AM IST

    60.2 Naseem Shah to Lasith Embuldeniya, out, OUT! There is glove involved and Embuldeniya is caught behind! Good review from Azhar Ali and a terrific snorter from Naseem. Boy, is he pumped up straight away. A short ball to a tail-ender. Right at the body. How does one play that? We have no idea. Neither did Embuldeniya. Pitched around leg stump, Lasith just tries to fend without looking at the ball. The ball rises steeply and goes off something to the keeper. Rizwan straightaway starts to celebrate and so does Naseem but then they realize that Embuldeniya is not going anywhere as he has not been given out. Now, Naseem appeals.

  • 10:33 AM IST

    Caught behind? Drama on the first ball of the morning. Naseem is confident that Embuldeniya has gloved this to the keeper. Umpire Joel Wilson has not given it out though. A confident Naseem has urged his skipper to take the review and Azhar Ali signals the ‘T’. Ultra Edge detects glove!

  • 10:33 AM IST

    The players are out in the middle. Pakistan team gets into a huddle outside the boundary. LASITH EMBULDENIYA has joined Oshada Fernando in the middle. Now, the hosts spread out. Naseem to continue his over from Day 4. Here we go…

  • 10:33 AM IST

    Niroshan Dickwella is having a chat with Roshan Abeysinghe. On his knock last evening, Dikka says that he had a chat with Oshada Fernando and made a plan. Stresses that first he played defensively but missed a couple of balls. Then, he adds that he chose to attack. Feels unfortunate that he got out after the century stand but believes that reverse sweep is his strength and he will not stop playing anything which is his strength. Honestly says that the match went away from Sri Lanka on Day 3 and if someone from his team had batted strongly, they might not have been in this situation. On what different they could have done in the second innings with the ball, Niroshan says that they could have maintained more consistency and intensity.

  • 10:33 AM IST

    From Pakistan’s point of view, they will hope that the young Naseem Shah gets a 5-fer. He has bowled exceptionally well and the way he setup Dilruwan Perera shows the matured head on his young shoulders. He will be raring to bowl fast this morning and clean this up in a jiffy.

  • 10:33 AM IST

    Since Day 2 evening, it has all been Pakistan. Sunday was no different. Barring that one fightback from Oshada Fernando and Niroshan Dickwella, there was nothing much from Sri Lanka. They trail by a mammoth 263 runs and even if they stave off 64 off those, it will be an achievement, considering that only 3 wickets are left.

  • 10:33 AM IST

    That time when you feel should we even go to the ground? Should we even switch on the television sets? Shall we just wait for the inevitable update to come which will read Pakistan win the game? With due respect to Sri Lanka, does not seem like there will be any fightback coming this morning. 3 wickets remaining and they might just hope to delay what is going to be the eventual result. Will we even get an hour of play? Hello and a warm welcome to the final day of Sri Lanka’s tour of Pakistan.

  • 10:33 AM IST

    … DAY 5 …

  • 10:33 AM IST

    What is remaining for Sri Lanka in this Test match? Just hope that there is some solid fight shown. But sadly, there are no batting pairs left. Oshada Fernando is the only recognized batsman remaining and given that three tail-enders are to come, this might not last even 30 minutes on Day 5. Join us at 10 am local (0500 GMT) for the final rites of the match and series. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

  • 10:33 AM IST

    Excellent bowling from Pakistan. On a track where the Lankans toiled and toiled and toiled, struggling to pick wickets for over 2 days, they managed to eke out the edges and got the scalps. Naseem Shah and Shaheen Afridi showed that pace matters as the Lankans were caught hopping in the crease. The 16-year old Naseem will be hoping he gets at least two out of the remaining three wickets, if not all three, for his maiden Test 5-for.

  • 10:33 AM IST

    Another day which has belonged to the hosts. They stamped their authority right from the first ball of Day 4 and hammered 160 runs in the opening session. Then, to everyone’s surprise, they declared during the Lunch break, catching everyone off guard. The result of that was having the Lankans 5 down for 97 but a rearguard 104-run stand between Dickwella and Oshada has taken this into the fifth day.
