Sri Lanka in Bangladesh T20I Series - 1st T20I

Bangladesh v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 2 runs

6.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Sangakkara, 1 run, slow again, pitched on middle, straightening. Sanga goes back and pushes it wide of midwicket

Sri Lanka 62/2   KC Sangakkara 1* (1b)

7.1

Rubel Hossain to Sangakkara, 5 runs, oh, so close to being a wicket, but he gets five for that instead. He drove a full ball straight to mid off and took off for a single. Mash at mid off took a shy at the stumps and would probably have run him out if he hit. Instead it goes for four overthrows

7.3

Rubel Hossain to Sangakkara, no run, first bouncer of the day, well directed. Sanga ducks it

7.4

Rubel Hossain to Sangakkara, FOUR, ugly shot, but well worth it for Sanga. A length ball on middle is muscled over straight-ish midwicket, and all the way to the fence. Played that shot a lot in the last Test

7.5

Rubel Hossain to Sangakkara, 1 run, length outside off, Sanga just fends this wide of cover, and this is a comfortable single

Sri Lanka 73/2   KC Sangakkara 11* (5b 1x4)

8.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Sangakkara, OUT, oh what a catch! It takes something special to dismiss Sanga at this ground, and Nasir Hossain provides just that. Sanga rocks back and plays that straight-ish pull that brought him about a billion runs in the Test match here. But this time, Shakib has got a man out there and Nasir sprints full tilt to his right about seven metres in from the fence, then throws himself to intercept the ball mid air.

KC Sangakkara c Nasir Hossain b Shakib Al Hasan 11 (7m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 183.33

Sri Lanka 77/3   KC Sangakkara 11 (6b 1x4)
