0.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Dilshan, no run, pushed away on the off side

0.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to Dilshan, no run, Dilshan has the width to go after, he gives it a thump but the off side infield is packed, cover fields

0.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to Dilshan, no run, on to the pads with the angle but he can only tuck it to square leg

Sri Lanka 1/0   TM Dilshan 0* (4b)

1.5

Nazmul Hossain to Dilshan, no run, tidy start so far from Nazmul, Dilshan softly defends a pitched up straightish one around off

1.6

Nazmul Hossain to Dilshan, FOUR, but he gives it away off the last ball, overpitched, widish, Dilshan gets front foot out and clobbers it over covers

Sri Lanka 6/0   TM Dilshan 4* (6b 1x4)

2.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to Dilshan, no run, pushed on the off side

2.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Dilshan, no run, pitched fuller, just around off stump, he carefully plays it out towards mid off

2.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to Dilshan, FOUR, crack! more width for Dilshan and more punishment for the bowlers, he allows the length ball to come on, stays beside the line and just sends it scurrying past cover with quick hands

2.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to Dilshan, 1 run, angles it in towards the stumps now, Dilshan is not in control as he leans to force it past the non-striker, mid on cuts it off

Sri Lanka 14/0   TM Dilshan 9* (10b 2x4)

Sri Lanka 27/1   TM Dilshan 18* (18b 3x4)

Nazmul Hossain to Dilshan, no run, the two wickets have made even Dilshan a tad cautious, he sees some width and does not go after it like he usually does, punches to extra cover

Sri Lanka 31/2   TM Dilshan 19* (20b 3x4)

9.1

Nazmul Hossain to Dilshan, no run, coming in from back of a length, punched away to extra cover

9.2

Nazmul Hossain to Dilshan, OUT, oh boy, Nazmul is all over the Sri Lankans, this time Dilshan has played on, he had become a touch wary after those two big wickets, but that is just not his game, this time he tries to force a length ball through the off side, with no foot movement, the ball was not wide enough, and he ends up getting an inside edge on to the stumps, some start for Bangladesh

TM Dilshan b Nazmul Hossain 19 (43m 22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 86.36

Sri Lanka 32/3   TM Dilshan 19 (22b 3x4)
