    2.3 Three men follow the swirling ball on the leg side. Mushfiq, who has the big gloves, calls for it. Runs after the ball, tumbles, and pouches it safely. This was the cutter again from Mashrafe. Hip-high cutter, going away outside off, 118ks. Danushka does not spot the change-up again. He pulls early and splices the ball over square leg. Mushfiq completes a brilliant catch with the sun squinting into his eyes 18/1
    24.3 high-full toss down leg - beamer - the square leg umpire calls it a no-ball, and there is a direct hit from Mahmudullah. Tharanga is caught short. He has to depart. This is even bizarre: run-out off a no-ball. Lucky break for Bangladesh. Mushfiq dives full-length to his right and deflects the ball to short fine leg. Tharanga dares to rush across to the other end. Mahmudullah, though, attacks the ball and nails a direct hit at the bowler's end 129/2
    37.4 just imagine how hard this must have been hit if the bowler had enough time in the world to run back few steps after being hit hard on his followthrough and then complete the catch. Full, Kusal backed away and picked the bones out of it. Taskin is hit on the left shoulder but the ball pops up. For a second, he isn't sure where the ball is, but recovers, looks up, regains his composure and then runs back to complete the catch. 216/4
    36.4 Sri Lanka have reviewed an LBW decision. S Ravi took a long, long time to raise the finger. Maybe they've gone up just because they thought the umpire wasn't certain. The appeal was a very strong one from the bowler and keeper. This is a length ball coming in from wide of the crease, Chandimal walks across the stumps to help it over short fine but is struck in front of the stumps. There was certainly no bat. The ball was in line with the stumps and would've hit middle and leg 212/3
    49.3 Asela holes out to mid-off. Really full and outside off, Asela drives it in the air. Mid-off is inside the circle, Sarkar times his jump well and holds onto a overhead catch 311/8
    45.4 Having dropped Siriwardana in the last over, Mehedi bowls his man. This was a straight ball from around the wicket. Credit to Mehedi for holding this back and holding his composure. Siriwardana goes for a big slog-sweep and does not make contact. Timbaaah 271/5
    46.4 Mushfiq effects a direct hit and runs out Thisara. The square leg umpire raises his finger. Leg-stump ball, Thisara can't put bat on ball. Grazes the pad and rolls behind to the keeper. Thisara probably thinks it has passed the keeper and strays out of the crease, looking to get to the other end. He has to undo his steps. Mushfiq, removes his right glove, hunts the ball down, and over-arm throws it onto the stumps at the striker's end 280/6
    48.2 Mushfiq effects another direct hit, this time he under-arms it onto the striker's end. Dilruwan premeditates by venturing a long way across the off stump. Mustafiz pushes a yorker wide past him. Dilruwan misses it and searches for a bye. He can't get back in time. The ball might have brushed the pad. Mushfiq swoops down on the ball and boom! He has had a great day with the big gloves 300/7

    49.4 two wickets in two balls. Taskin is on a hat-trick. This is an innocuous full-toss on middle, Lakmal swats or rather flaps it away in the air, midwicket dives full-length to his left and grabs a smart, two-handed catch 311/9
    49.5 Taskin does it. He does a Steve Finn or a Shane Bond. He claims a last-over hat-trick, pulls off a spread-eagled celebration, and sets off on a sprint. Pinpoint yorker, ripping inswinging yorker at 141ks, squeezes under the bat and clatters middle and off. Six wickets in the last five overs 311/10
