3.6

Nazmul Hossain to Jayawardene, OUT, he's bowled 'em, what a strike early on for Bangladesh, Mahela is gone with a nothing stroke, length delivery outside off stump, angled in a shade, Mahela leaves a big gap between bat and pad as he ends up wafting tentatively across the line, the ball sneaks through and takes out off

Sri Lanka 19/1   TM Dilshan 14* (12b 3x4)   Nazmul Hossain 2-0-10-1

7.2

Nazmul Hossain to Sangakkara, OUT, oh dear, Sanga has smacked a pitched up delivery straight to extra cover, nothing much in the delivery, it was widish and slanted across Sanga, who got forward and thumped it straight to the fielder, Bangladesh celebrate with glee, Sanga walks off quickly

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

Sri Lanka 32/3   CK Kapugedera 2* (8b)   Nazmul Hossain 4.2-0-20-3

31.6

Abdur Razzak to Thirimanne, OUT, unfortunate, how unfortunate is that for Thirimanne, he has been stumped off Rahim's pads, he missed the nudge as this one went down the leg side, it all happened so quickly that Rahim was in no position to collect the ball, it rolled onto the stumps off his pad with Thirimanne's momentum having taken him outside the crease, Bangladesh breaking through before the batting Powerplay

HDRL Thirimanne st †Mushfiqur Rahim b Abdur Razzak 48 (89m 73b 3x4 0x6) SR: 65.75

Abdur Razzak to Kapugedera, OUT, sharp catch from Shakib, Kapu cannot believe it, he had smashed this full delivery inside-out but it carried low to Shakib at extra cover, the former captain goes low to hold on

CK Kapugedera c Shakib Al Hasan b Abdur Razzak 62 (138m 92b 4x4 0x6) SR: 67.39

Sri Lanka 169/5   WU Tharanga 24* (26b 3x4)   Abdur Razzak 7.5-0-29-2

42.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Kulasekara, OUT, slow left-arm strikes once more, Kula given leg-before as he pushes forward, could there have been an inside edge, if there wasn't he was gone, Shakib getting the flat delivery to skid on, replays show it would have struck middle

KMDN Kulasekara lbw b Shakib Al Hasan 1 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Sri Lanka 183/7   WU Tharanga 31* (34b 4x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 8.2-0-40-2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Malinga, OUT, Mashrafe has been outstanding today, fools Malinga with a slower length ball, he ends up having a slog all around it, off stump is rattled
