2.1

Malinga to Jahurul Islam, no run, thick outside edge towards point as he defends a sharp back of a length ball

2.2

Malinga to Jahurul Islam, no run, pushed off the front foot to mid off

2.3

Malinga to Jahurul Islam, 1 wide, sends the slower one well down the leg side

2.3

Malinga to Jahurul Islam, no run, huge appeal for a catch, Sri Lanka are totally convinced, umpire Reiffel is not, he was in no position to tackle the short ball as it reared up at his head, tried to swat it away awkwardly with a bent knee, before that could happen, it had pinged him on the helmet, and popped up to cover, did not seem to be any bat involved

2.4

Malinga to Jahurul Islam, 1 wide, follows it up with a slow and full one, which goes down leg

2.4

Malinga to Jahurul Islam, no run, alternating between the bouncer and the slower one, Jahurul gets out of the line of this nasty one

2.5

Malinga to Jahurul Islam, no run, another bouncer, well avoided, Jahurul bends his knee, goes low, drops his wrists and allows it go over

2.6

Malinga to Jahurul Islam, no run, that's got to be close, this is fast, furious and testing stuff, a length ball now, comes in and raps him on the pad, appeal for lbw turned down, would have clipped the top of middle, as replays show, too much doubt with the height

Bangladesh 11/1   Jahurul Islam 1* (7b)

3.6

Kulasekara to Jahurul Islam, no run, length ball nipping in to the right-hander, defended

Bangladesh 20/1   Jahurul Islam 1* (8b)

4.3

Malinga to Jahurul Islam, no run, inside edge on to pad as he tentatively pushes at one outside off

4.4

Malinga to Jahurul Islam, no run, the bouncer arrives, on target into Jahurul, who wants to hook, but is beaten

4.5

Malinga to Jahurul Islam, no run, low full toss now, pushed back to the bowler, Malinga smiles

4.6

Malinga to Jahurul Islam, no run, better from Jahurul, he has been tested by Malinga a lot, gets a wide and full delivery, throws his bat at it as he goes for the drive, mistimed to extra cover

Bangladesh 25/1   Jahurul Islam 1* (12b)

5.4

Kulasekara to Jahurul Islam, 1 run, widish one cut away to third man

Bangladesh 31/1   Jahurul Islam 2* (13b)

6.1

Lakmal to Jahurul Islam, no run, fullish one worked to midwicket

6.2

Lakmal to Jahurul Islam, OUT, and Jahurul has thrown it away, with Tamim in such supreme touch at the other end, saw Lakmal pitching it short, went for the pull belatedly, and ended up spooning it to squarish midwicket

Jahurul Islam c Kapugedera b Lakmal 2 (24m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 13.33

Bangladesh 39/2   Jahurul Islam 2 (15b)
