Sri Lanka in Bangladesh T20I Series - 1st T20I

Bangladesh v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 2 runs

2.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to Chandimal, no run, length on the pads, Chandimal turns it straight to short-fine leg, but no time for a single

Sri Lanka 21/1   LD Chandimal 0* (1b)

3.6

Sohag Gazi to Chandimal, 1 run, Chandimal gets off the mark with a single to long on, off a fullish ball

Sri Lanka 39/1   LD Chandimal 1* (2b)

4.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to Chandimal, 1 run, length on off stump. Chandimal squirts this wide of midwicket and hands the strike over to Kusal.

4.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to Chandimal, SIX, Chandi is not content to let Kusal have all the fun. That is a massive strike, first of the match. Having promoted himself, he launches a full delivery over wide mid-on. Will give him some confidence

4.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Chandimal, FOUR, some luck now. Mash pitches it short-of-a-lenghth. Chandi plays a sort of ungainly cut. The ball takes an outside edge and flies where first slip would have been.

4.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to Chandimal, FOUR, super shot. Mashrafe pitches wide and full, Chandi gets low and crashes it through the covers, all along the ground.

4.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to Chandimal, 1 run, fullish again, on the stumps. Flicked to midwicket, who has to do a bit of work, allowing the single

Sri Lanka 56/1   LD Chandimal 17* (7b 2x4 1x6)

5.1

Rubel Hossain to Chandimal, no run, length ball on off stump, crunched straight to cover

5.2

Rubel Hossain to Chandimal, no run, and just as I praise him, he comes down the pitch and plays an ungainly swipe to a short-of-a-length ball. Misses.

5.3

Rubel Hossain to Chandimal, no run, cuts him in half with a short ball. Chandimal doesn't connect with the pull

5.4

Rubel Hossain to Chandimal, no run, good stuff by Rubel. Angled into off stump, length ball. Chandimal is less ambitious, but he can't push it past midwicket.

5.5

Rubel Hossain to Chandimal, 1 run, short, gets the pull this time, but there's a deep backward square-leg to clean up the aerial stroke

Sri Lanka 57/1   LD Chandimal 18* (12b 2x4 1x6)

6.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Chandimal, no run, floated up wide of off stump, Chandi chops down, but it's straight to point

6.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Chandimal, 1 leg bye, slow again, Chandimal comes down the pitch and can't get anything more than pad to it

6.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Chandimal, OUT, he hadn't played a decent shot after I talked him up, and he now perishes, holing out to long off. Chandimal ran down the pitch and tried to smash it for six, but he didn't have enough power in the shot. Fielder at long on leaps and takes it just inside the ropes.

LD Chandimal c Farhad Reza b Shakib Al Hasan 18 (24m 15b 2x4 1x6) SR: 120.00

Sri Lanka 61/2   LD Chandimal 18 (15b 2x4 1x6)
