27,28,29,30 January 2014 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Eranga to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, caught at fine leg! It was short and pulled away, the fielder Lakmal was very close to the rope and he juggled it and caught it, judged it well in the end

Tamim Iqbal c Lakmal b Eranga 6 (40m 28b 1x4 0x6) SR: 21.42

Bangladesh 35/1   Shamsur Rahman 29* (27b 6x4)   RMS Eranga 4.1-1-10-1

Mathews to Marshall Ayub, OUT, gone! Mathews has one now. He pitched this one on a length and got the ball to dart in markedly off the seam. Marshall brings his bat down but way down the wrong line. The ball strikes him around the knee roll on the front foot and the umpire raises his finger. That came in a long way, out of nowhere.

Marshall Ayub lbw b Mathews 1 (10m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Bangladesh 40/2   Shamsur Rahman 33* (30b 7x4)   AD Mathews 2.4-1-6-1

Eranga to Shamsur Rahman, OUT, caught at gully and Bangladesh have lost their third! Shamsur playing away from the body, Eranga pitched this one up and got it to move away, Shamsur went for the drive, big outside edge and Vithanage judges it well diving to his right at gully, clever change of length by Eranga who had peppered him with the short stuff before this

Shamsur Rahman c Perera b Eranga 33 (60m 34b 7x4 0x6) SR: 97.05

Bangladesh 40/3   Mominul Haque 0* (2b)   RMS Eranga 5.4-1-15-2

Lakmal to Mominul Haque, OUT, soft dismissal for Mominul! Lakmal bangs it in short, Mominul was hurried onto the pull, he didn't look in good position to play it, ended up miscuing the shot to short square leg where the fielder actually had to dive forward to take it, the ball dipped before reaching Vithanage

Mominul Haque c Vithanage b Lakmal 8 (31m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Bangladesh 59/4   Shakib Al Hasan 11* (20b 2x4)   RAS Lakmal 4.2-0-22-1

Herath to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, trapped on the sweep! Flighted on off and middle, Shakib was early on the sweep, the ball hits the base of the pad and adjacent to the stumps, easy decision, Bangladesh lose a wicket against the run of play

Shakib Al Hasan lbw b Herath 55 (130m 91b 9x4 0x6) SR: 60.43

Bangladesh 145/5   Mushfiqur Rahim 36* (68b 6x4)   HMRKB Herath 3.1-0-18-1

Eranga to Nasir Hossain, OUT, snorter of a delivery. Dug in short by Eranga, and though Nasir gets into a position to play it, he bails and tries to evade the ball instead. The ball collects glove as it passes through and Eranga is pretty chuffed with that one

Nasir Hossain c †Chandimal b Eranga 4 (6m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Bangladesh 150/6   Mushfiqur Rahim 37* (70b 6x4)   RMS Eranga 14.4-2-42-3

Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, he's been given lbw but Rahim's a bit dazed, could have been an inside edge. To Lakmal's credit, the ball swung back in appreciably from outside off, Rahim was looking to play across the line, struck above the pad, seemed like two sounds and Nigel Llong was quite convinced though

Mushfiqur Rahim lbw b Lakmal 61 (177m 122b 9x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Bangladesh 203/7   Sohag Gazi 27* (46b 4x4)   RAS Lakmal 16.4-2-55-2

Lakmal to Sohag Gazi, OUT, Gazi throws it away! Lakmal bowls it short from over the wicket, Gazi can't help but go for the pull, he ends up swatting it towards mid-on and mistimes it completely, a dolly for Eranga at mid-on

Sohag Gazi c Eranga b Lakmal 42 (77m 56b 6x4 1x6) SR: 75.00

Bangladesh 219/8   Robiul Islam 0* (2b)   RAS Lakmal 17.3-3-60-3

Herath to Rubel Hossain, OUT, through the gate, the arm ball gets Rubel, tossed up and Rubel looked to drive expecting it to turn away but he left a big gap between bat and pad and the ball hit the middle stump

Rubel Hossain b Herath 2 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Bangladesh 222/9   Robiul Islam 1* (5b)   HMRKB Herath 9.5-1-44-2

Eranga to Robiul Islam, OUT, caught at gully! Good length outside the off stump and he looks to slash it away but finds Dilruwan Perera who quickly moves to his right at gully

Robiul Islam c Perera b Eranga 5 (31m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 31.25

Bangladesh 232/10   Al-Amin Hossain 6* (7b 1x6)   RMS Eranga 17.4-2-49-4
