Mendis to Shamsur Rahman, OUT, given eventually by umpire Oxenford as Mendis implores a second time, tossed up on middle and leg and hitting him on the pad as he misses with the bat, was that headed down leg? Nope, replays show that hitting leg, umpire's call

Shamsur Rahman lbw b Mendis 39 (67m 57b 6x4 0x6) SR: 68.42

Bangladesh 74/1   Anamul Haque 34* (53b 2x4 1x6)   BAW Mendis 2.2-0-12-1

Mendis to Mominul Haque, OUT, knocked him over, Mominul is rooted to the crease as Mendis tossed this up high, should have been forward really to such a full length, tries to play half-heartedly from the crease, and it spins away from middle and leg to uproot off stump

Mominul Haque b Mendis 1 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Bangladesh 76/2   Anamul Haque 35* (55b 2x4 1x6)   BAW Mendis 3-0-14-2

de Silva to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, they get Mushfiqur now, the captain goes down for a scoop, misses, and is hit on the pad with one that comes in with the angle, umpire Bowden agrees with Sanga's loud appeal, that was hitting middle and leg, replays say

Mushfiqur Rahim lbw b de Silva 4 (10m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Bangladesh 87/3   Anamul Haque 42* (66b 2x4 1x6)   PC de Silva 5.5-0-22-1

Priyanjan to Anamul Haque, OUT, Thirimanne pulls off a cracker of a catch at midwicket, Anamul flicked in the air, Thirimanne jumped and stretched out his hands over his head to reach the ball, but could only parry it behind him, he fell to the ground, recovered quickly enough to rush back and take it low with another dive

Anamul Haque c Thirimanne b Priyanjan 49 (110m 86b 2x4 1x6) SR: 56.97

Bangladesh 106/4   Shakib Al Hasan 11* (24b 1x4)   SMA Priyanjan 0.1-0-0-1

Priyanjan to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, he's gone this time though, tried to repeat the stroke with another dash down the track, this one did not turn though, and the thick inside edge looped tamely to midwicket

Shakib Al Hasan c Mathews b Priyanjan 20 (39m 32b 2x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

Bangladesh 119/5   Nasir Hossain 4* (17b)   SMA Priyanjan 2.2-0-9-2

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, OUT, off stump uprooted, Mahmudullah has been backing away outside leg, tried that again, but Lakmal homed this yorker quick and under the swish of the bat

Mahmudullah b Lakmal 30 (43m 41b 2x4 0x6) SR: 73.17

Bangladesh 174/6   Nasir Hossain 26* (43b 1x4)   RAS Lakmal 7.3-0-25-1

Lakmal to Nasir Hossain, OUT, Nasir's struggle is over, he heaves at a short of a length ball and the mishit sails to Mahela who comes in from long on to take it

Nasir Hossain c Jayawardene b Lakmal 30 (65m 49b 1x4 0x6) SR: 61.22

Bangladesh 183/7   Ziaur Rahman 4* (6b)   RAS Lakmal 8.3-0-29-2

NLTC Perera to Ziaur Rahman, OUT, gone this time, a slower one from the back of the hand, it arrives full at him, but is also dipping and goes past his swinging bat and cuts into off stump

Ziaur Rahman b NLTC Perera 12 (22m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Bangladesh 203/8   Arafat Sunny 2* (9b)   NLTC Perera 7.2-0-29-1

NLTC Perera to Rubel Hossain, OUT, another one, Thisara gets it full at the batsman, Rubel has a heave, inside edges and another one crashes into the stumps

Rubel Hossain b NLTC Perera 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 203/9   Arafat Sunny 2* (9b)   NLTC Perera 7.3-0-29-2
