Sri Lanka in Bangladesh T20I Series - 1st T20I

Bangladesh v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 2 runs

10.1

Farhad Reza to MDKJ Perera, 1 run, length outside off, muscled past the bowler for a single and that takes him to a fifty off 32 balls.

10.2

Farhad Reza to Mathews, 1 run, full ball on the stump, whipped away straight of midwicket. Mathews is off the mark.

10.3

Farhad Reza to MDKJ Perera, 1 wide, fired way down leg stump. Wide called.

10.3

Farhad Reza to MDKJ Perera, 2 runs, full and just wide of off stump. Kusal drives it hard, gets it past wide mid off and there's enough space to get two

10.4

Farhad Reza to MDKJ Perera, 1 run, slower ball on middle stump, Kusal chops it away square on the leg side. Just seems to know where every gap is. Great batting.

10.5

Farhad Reza to Mathews, 1 run, length ball on middle, Mathews swats it down the ground for one

10.6

Farhad Reza to MDKJ Perera, 1 run, another single. Kusal knows he has to stick around. Fullish ball, driven to mid on.

Sri Lanka 95/4   Farhad Reza 1-0-8-0

12.1

Farhad Reza to Mathews, 1 run, length ball on off stump, Mathews gets forward and turns it into the gap at midwicket again

12.2

Farhad Reza to MDKJ Perera, 2 leg byes, hit on the pads, but it's pitched ouside leg and probably missing leg as well. The deflection doesn't go far, but Kusal is a livewire between the wickets.

12.3

Farhad Reza to MDKJ Perera, SIX, a beautifully-struck pick up shot. That's just damn good timing. It's a full ball pitched on leg, Kusal whips this square over the leg side, and it lands about a metre beyond the ropes

12.4

Farhad Reza to MDKJ Perera, no run, hits him on the pads with a slower, length ball. But that's pitched outside leg as well.

12.5

Farhad Reza to MDKJ Perera, 1 run, length ball outside off stump. Kusal drives on the up, all the way to long off

12.6

Farhad Reza to Mathews, 2 runs, slower ball again, full on the stumps. Mathews mines that gap at midwicket once more, and Kusal scampers back for two. This is excellent from Sri Lanka after they lost a few quick ones.

Sri Lanka 114/4   Farhad Reza 2-0-18-0
