5.6 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.. 17/1

16.2 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. 62/2

23.5 Priyanjan to Mushfiqur Rahim, 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 108/3
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim* c Senanayake b Prasad 30 48 37 3 0 81.08
28.4 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 130/4
View dismissal Naeem Islam c Prasad b Senanayake 32 68 55 1 0 58.18
39.6 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 184/5
View dismissal Nasir Hossain c Priyanjan b Lakmal 38 71 43 4 0 88.37
44.4 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 201/7
View dismissal Mahmudullah c Thirimanne b Lakmal 5 17 12 0 0 41.66
44.1 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 200/6
View dismissal Sohag Gazi b NLTC Perera 23 23 13 0 3 176.92
48.5 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 232/8

View dismissal MDKJ Perera b Rubel Hossain 106 142 124 6 5 85.48
39.2 oh he runs out of luck this time! Possibly he was just tired as he throws his bat at the length ball - played completely across the line - and misses it completely. The off stump takes a beating. But what an innings this has been. He got his maiden hundred on a day his team needed extra responsibility. Well played KJP 198/3
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c Shamsur Rahman b Mahmudullah 18 36 31 2 0 58.06
10.1 a soft dismissal first ball! The crowd roars. He comes round the wicket and Thirimanne just spoons it to short cover. It possibly stopped in the pitch a bit. But a big breakthrough for Bangladesh 44/1
View dismissal KDK Vithanage b Mahmudullah 9 16 15 1 0 60.00
16.1 Mahmudullah strikes again! Lovely delivery this one - flighted and on the middle stump line.. But an equally suicidal shot - he has been going for those slog sweeps and he goes for it again but misses it completely. The middle stump has been flattened. 60/2
View dismissal LD Chandimal c †Anamul Haque b Rubel Hossain 64 98 70 4 0 91.42
41.1 and Rubel gets another one! This was quick, this was pacy, this had extra zip and extra bounce. the batsman wanted to guide it to third man but is surprised by the pace on that, it takes a thick outside edge straight to the keeper. Anamul doesn't show any reaction at all first.. but I guess it was because he was confident that it was out, not the other way 205/4
