Sri Lanka won by 3 wickets (with 0 balls remaining)
14 February 2014 - day/night match (20-over match)

Dilshan to Shamsur Rahman, OUT, Shamsur Rahman, after having survived on the previous ball, perishes this time, slapping a catch to midwicket, straight to the man there, takes a chest-high catch, the move to open with Dilshan pays off, Malinga will be a relieved man

Shamsur Rahman c Chandimal b Dilshan 1 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Bangladesh 3/1   Tamim Iqbal 2* (2b)   TM Dilshan 0.5-0-3-1

Kulasekara to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, and another one down, both Bangladesh openers have fallen within eight balls of the start, Tamim skips down the track and moved away from leg stumps, Kula bowls it well outside off, Tamim has to reach across to get to that one, he still tries to force the ball and can't get enough on it, holing out to deep point

Tamim Iqbal c Mendis b Kulasekara 2 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Bangladesh 3/2   Anamul Haque 0* (1b)   KMDN Kulasekara 0.2-0-0-1

Senanayake to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, a classic catch from Kulasekara at long-on, huge wicket as Shakib is gone, Bangladesh have been scoring almost exclusively in boundaries in this frenetic T20 so far, Shakib can't connect well enough though and Kulasekara takes a screamer of a catch, he sprints back from mid-on, keeps his eyes on the ball, and stretches out to pluck a sensational catch while facing the boundary, tumbles over with the momentum, awesome effort that

Shakib Al Hasan c Kulasekara b Senanayake 12 (7m 6b 3x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

Bangladesh 35/3   Anamul Haque 20* (7b 2x4 2x6)   SMSM Senanayake 0.2-0-0-1

Senanayake to Anamul Haque, OUT, wow! I thought Kula's would be the catch of the series, but it isn't even the catch of the past 15 minutes, here's Kusal Perera with an astonishing, diving take at the boundary, Anamul's all-action innings has come to an end, he struck this powerfully towards deep midwicket, Perera wasn't at the boundary, he took a few paces to his right and had to fling himself to take an overhead catch

Anamul Haque c MDKJ Perera b Senanayake 24 (21m 17b 2x4 2x6) SR: 141.17

Bangladesh 41/4   Nasir Hossain 2* (3b)   SMSM Senanayake 1.3-0-5-2

Mendis to Nasir Hossain, OUT, and another one! Nasir holes out to extra cover now, no need for any fielding heroics to get the wicket, this was a simple catch, straight at the man, Chandimal didn't have to move, Nasir Hossain will have to move to the pavilion

Nasir Hossain c Chandimal b Mendis 8 (18m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 61.53

Bangladesh 47/5   Sabbir Rahman 0* (2b)   BAW Mendis 0.3-0-2-1

Kulasekara to Sabbir Rahman, OUT, oh dear, comical running here from Bangladesh, if the crazy shots weren't enough, now both batsmen are at the same end when Mahmudullah is run out, Sabbit taps the ball towards point and takes a couple of paces down the track, Mahmudullah starts sprinting, Sabbir stops, and Mahmudullah has no chance of returning, Dilshan doesn't even need to throw, he runs in to take off the bails

Mahmudullah run out 9 (11m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

Bangladesh 59/6   Sabbir Rahman 3* (10b)   KMDN Kulasekara 1.3-0-12-1

Kulasekara to Farhad Reza, OUT, now he has reason to smile, Reza gifts away his wicket, chipping a catch to short cover, and Bangladesh have lost their seventh, nothing dangerous about the delivery, but it results in a wicket

Farhad Reza c Chandimal b Kulasekara 9 (15m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 64.28

Bangladesh 80/7   Sabbir Rahman 10* (22b)   KMDN Kulasekara 2.5-0-21-2

Malinga to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, the perfect yorker from Malinga, it didn't need as good a ball as that to dismiss Mashrafe given the way he was batting, this time he has moved away miles from the leg stump, he struggles to t reach this yorker which clatters into the base of middle stump

Mashrafe Mortaza b Malinga 17 (10m 10b 4x4 0x6) SR: 170.00

Bangladesh 101/8   Sabbir Rahman 14* (28b)   SL Malinga 2.3-0-9-1

Malinga to Arafat Sunny, OUT, slower one from Malinga, far too good for Sunny, who can only lob a catch to Chandimal at mid-on, easy catch there, the fourth for Chandimal

Arafat Sunny c Chandimal b Malinga 5 (11m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Bangladesh 120/9   Sabbir Rahman 26* (34b 2x4)   SL Malinga 3.3-0-20-2

Malinga to Sabbir Rahman, OUT, length ball outside off, and another smart catch ends this innings, this was sliced towards deep point, Kulasekara takes a low catch after moving in from the rope, Sri Lanka have been superb in the field today, Bangladsh are all out for 120

Sabbir Rahman c Kulasekara b Malinga 26 (61m 36b 2x4 0x6) SR: 72.22

Bangladesh 120/10   Rubel Hossain 0* (0b)   SL Malinga 3.5-0-20-3
