0.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to Dilshan, OUT, gone! Ambitious shot when you're not yet off the mark. Dilshan tries to play the over-the-shoulder scoop to Mash, but the bowler has slowed it down. It pitches around middle, Dilshan misjudges the pace, and it crashes into middle and off. Big strike first over. The crowd is delirious.

4.4
