View dismissal WU Tharanga c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mahmudullah 54 110 73 5 1 73.97
26.2 51.6 mph, More to cheer for Bangladeshi supporters as Tharanga is stumped. This is angling down the leg side, and he looks to play it fine of fine leg and makes too fine a contact and Mushfiqur is quick to get down the leg side and take the catch. Instinctively he takes a step down the wicket, and Mushfiqur is quick with the stumping, just in case. I remember them taking at least one couple each over with this shot, and here it has got his wicket 155/2
View dismissal TM Dilshan c & b Shakib Al Hasan 71 63 51 11 1 139.21
15.5 48.6 mph, Dilshan is gone! Leading edge as he looks to work this back-of-a-length delivery into the on side. Simple return catch for Shakib, tame way to end a superb innings 111/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c Shakib Al Hasan b Shafiul Islam 52 99 69 4 0 75.36
39.3 83.7 mph, truth is stranger than fiction, that wide full toss gets Bangladesh a wicket! Sangakkara reaches out for it, and makes a weak contact, and finds cover-point 239/4
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Shakib Al Hasan b Shafiul Islam 43 46 35 6 0 122.85
37.2 83.2 mph, gone! Goes for another inside-out shot, but he has followed him and cramped him, hence a weak shot to cover-point. While walking back, Mahela gestures to Sanga that he should have gone over midwicket with this one 224/3

  Bangladesh innings (target: 313 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Tamim Iqbal st †Sangakkara b Dilshan 51 82 53 5 1 96.22
19.2 51.1 mph, and he is gone, immediately after having played that beautiful shot, and Dilshan has got the big wicket to go with his crazy fifty! Nicely flighted drew him out, enough turn to beat his attempt at an inside-out drive, and Sanga makes no mistake as his foot is dragged over the line 104/3
View dismissal Imrul Kayes c Jayawardene b Kulasekara 3 14 9 0 0 33.33
2.5 78.5 mph, and finally he has himself been netted! Finally that inevitable edge comes as he hangs his bat away from the body, and Mahela takes a neat low catch at second slip 20/1
View dismissal Junaid Siddique c Kulasekara b Muralitharan 38 40 34 6 0 111.76
13.3 52.4 mph, and it works immediately! Kula you beauty, what a lovely catch! Junaid sweeps, gets a top edge towards deep square leg, Kula runs in from fine leg, makes lovely ground, and then dives to get his fingers under it before it can hit the grass 77/2
View dismissal Mohammad Ashraful lbw b Dilshan 9 34 29 0 0 31.03
21.4 57.2 mph, what a bizarre way to end a bizarre innings, but then again you come to expect it with Ashraful! Reverse-sweep, seriously? After not playing an intentful shot for two hours, he goes for a lame reverse sweep, and is beaten and is caught so plumb, Dilshan doesn't even appeal, and then perhaps the thought comes that match referees are not pleasant people to visit and he makes a formal appeal 110/4
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan* b Muralitharan 20 38 26 1 0 76.92
28.4 53.6 mph, another nothing shot costs Bangladesh a wicket, goes back, plays with an angled bat, across the line, and ends up hitting outside the line of a slow offbreak. The off bail is tickled over 143/6
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim st †Sangakkara b Dilshan 6 13 12 0 0 50.00
25.1 53.7 mph, Dilly is having a ball here! nicely tossed up on the pads, dipping, sucking him out of the crease, and then it turns down the leg side, and Sanga completes the stumping. Billy Bowden doesn't even need the TV umpire. Dilly dancing all over the place 126/5
View dismissal Mahmudullah c †Sangakkara b Welegedara 9 38 23 0 0 39.13
35.1 79.2 mph, and gets a wicket right away, another gift really, charging at him and edging a shortish delivery through to Sangakkara. Anyway the innings was not going anywhere, so something had to be done 167/7
View dismissal Naeem Islam lbw b Malinga 15 36 30 2 0 50.00
36.4 87.3 mph, toecrusher, good old toecrusher, Naeem can limp back to the pavilion, reverse swing, chasing that toe like a dog. Beautiful bowling 168/8
View dismissal Mashrafe Mortaza c †Sangakkara b Welegedara 15 17 15 3 0 100.00
39.1 81.9 mph, nine down there, Mash heaves at one too many, making room, and gets a thick edge to a back-of-a-length delivery to the keeper 186/9
View dismissal Shafiul Islam b Malinga 2 16 7 0 0 28.57
40.2 87.7 mph, finally it's all over, finally Malinga bowls one yorker on the middle-stump line, and Sri Lanka have registered a bonus point against Tamim and friends 186/10
