3rd ODI: Bangladesh v Sri Lanka at Dhaka, Feb 22, 2014
Sri Lanka won by 6 wickets (with 15 balls remaining)
22 February 2014 - day/night match (50-over match)

Prasad to Anamul Haque, OUT, and Dammika has a wicket in his first over! It's stack overflow, the blue screen of death, core dump.. as they say it! Anamul played that lovely shot earlier in the over, then started playing loose shots. This one was short of length and rising outside off, the batsman plays a nothing poke away from his body and the outside edge flies waist high to the keeper. Can't say I didn't see it coming..

Anamul Haque c †Chandimal b Prasad 2 (26m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

Bangladesh 17/1   Shamsur Rahman 13* (20b 2x4)   KTGD Prasad 1-0-2-1

Prasad to Shamsur Rahman, OUT, Dammika strikes again! It's a short ball, the first one of the day.. And it was quick too. The batsman was sucked into playing a hook shot and was no way in control of that.. A deep square leg was placed for that exact shot and it just settles into his hands.. He didn't have to move an inch.. It's good when a plan comes together..Shamsur's scratchy stay ends.

Shamsur Rahman c AK Perera b Prasad 25 (68m 44b 2x4 0x6) SR: 56.81

Bangladesh 62/2   Mominul Haque 32* (38b 4x4)   KTGD Prasad 3.2-0-20-2

Priyanjan to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, OUT, he waits for it to turn, tucks it to deep square leg and what do we have here!! A wicket out of nowhere again. Mominul was a touch slow to turn for the second and a great throw from the deep finds him short at the non-striker's end. Direct hit it was.. Sri Lanka have a bonus wicket as Mominul was looking so good. But great work by the fielder- Vithanage - there, he went for the non-striker's end smartly..This was shaping to be such a good innings

Mominul Haque run out 60 (70m 60b 8x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Bangladesh 108/3   Mushfiqur Rahim 17* (23b 1x4)   SMA Priyanjan 3.5-0-25-0

Prasad to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, and Dammika strikes again! And now Rahim is gone! This was short and wide and asking to be hit. Rahim does that part of the job well, but he hits it straight to the man at point. Maybe he wasn't able to control that extra bounce, but unlucky that he found the fielder there. Sena does well to hold on to that as it was hit pretty hard. Another wicket from nowhere. There is an air of unpredictability about how these wickets are falling when you least expect them

Mushfiqur Rahim c Senanayake b Prasad 30 (48m 37b 3x4 0x6) SR: 81.08

Bangladesh 130/4   Naeem Islam 8* (15b)   KTGD Prasad 6.4-0-28-3

Senanayake to Naeem Islam, OUT, and there is a wicket off the last ball of the Powerplay! They had done everything right - not too many runs, but they didn't lose a wicket - but Naeem decides to make the most of the last ball. he charges down the pitch and tries to clear mid-off, but fails to do so. Easy catch in the end

Naeem Islam c Prasad b Senanayake 32 (68m 55b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.18

Bangladesh 184/5   Nasir Hossain 28* (28b 3x4)   SMSM Senanayake 7-0-29-1

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, OUT, Lakmal finally gets something in that last column of his bowling figures! The one time Mahmudullah throws his bat at the length ball, he hits it straight to long on. That pressure was building for a while and it has consumed the batsman. There is a strange uneasy buzz around the ground because the runs have been hard to come by. Mahmudullah tries to break it with one shot and perishes

Mahmudullah c Thirimanne b Lakmal 5 (17m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

Bangladesh 200/6   Nasir Hossain 38* (41b 4x4)   RAS Lakmal 8.1-3-17-1

Lakmal to Nasir Hossain, OUT, another wicket! This is the big one. Nasir Hossain hits the full toss straight to midwicket. It's all falling apart. There had been so many full tosses from Lakmal that Naeem had failed to get away. This time, Nasir shows the right intent, but doesn't manage to beat the midwicket fielder, who takes a head high catch. Some luck with those full tosses for Lakmal, but I guess, you make your own luck by bowling well. That 250-run target is distant now

Nasir Hossain c Priyanjan b Lakmal 38 (71m 43b 4x4 0x6) SR: 88.37

Bangladesh 201/7   Sohag Gazi 1* (1b)   RAS Lakmal 8.4-3-18-2

NLTC Perera to Sohag Gazi, OUT, it's the end of Gazi! He tries to play a dilscoop as the fine leg is up, but he exposes his middle and leg stump. This was straight and quick and once he missed it, it was all over. The arrangement of stumps is disturbed

Sohag Gazi b NLTC Perera 23 (23m 13b 0x4 3x6) SR: 176.92

Bangladesh 232/8   Shafiul Islam 8* (13b 1x4)   NLTC Perera 8.5-0-39-1
