    10.5 and gone! Gunathilaka chips his wicket away. He was looking so good. So so good. Plenty of flight outside off, dips late on Gunathilaka, and he can't keep his drive down. Maybe undone by the slowness in the surface. A simple catch for Mahmudullah. Good stuff from Mehedi, kept bowling it full. 76/1
    13.4 goes straight through! Tharanga falls. Fullish delivery around leg, Tharanga is beaten for pace as he plays around the delivery. The ball sneaks through bat and pad and hits middle stump. Another good delivery by Taskin, nice upright seam. 87/2
    36.6 gone this time. Mustafizur strikes. It was going to be the last ball of his spell, but Mendis still sticks to an attempted dab to third man. It's another offcutter, but this one snicks the bat on its way to the keeper. Was a quality fifty from Mendis, but has got out at an inopportune moment. Good discipline from Mustafizur 194/5
    25.5 the bat was plonked inside but he lifted it even as both feet were in the air when the bails were dislodged. Excellent throw from deep point by Taskin, smart work from Mushfiqur. Very poor from Chandimal. Could have so easily just stretched back in. He was ambling down the crease this time. Bangladesh can't believe their luck. Third umpire S Ravi had a look at multiple replays, weighed his options and made the correct decision. Even though he was technically inside the crease, at the point of the bails coming off, both bat and feet were in the air. Rules state that is out. 136/3
    30.3 is that another run-out? Hesitation between the two batsmen. Yup, he's short. Second run-out of the innings. He is actually run out this time. Flat delivery outside off, tapped towards point. Siriwardana sets off, Mendis says yes and no. Siriwardana can't turn quick enough. Sold him down did Mendis. The throw is decent. Mushfiqur takes the throw in front of the stumps and removes the bails in one motion, even while withdrawing his hands to create time with momentum. Lovely work from Bangladesh there. The point fielder didn't muck up. 161/4
    43.3 and gone. So much pressure over the last few overs and Gunaratne throws his wicket away. Gets down towards the pitch and mis-times a slog into the hands of mid-on. Just a full delivery, but he lost all his shape while trying to hit that away. 216/6
    49.5 and taken by short fine leg. Not sure he needed to do that, especially with his power. It's a good full delivery way outside off, Thisara gets right across and scoops the ball to short fine leg. End of a superb innings through. 277/9
    44.5 and another wicket falls. Mustafizur strikes. That's good captaincy again. Another offcutter outside off, Prasanna gives it all he has. The ball skews off the outside half because of the direction of cut. Lobs in the air, and Mahmudullah takes a good reverse-cupped catch at long-off. SL continue their slide. 230/7
    49.2 juggled but taken. Full delivery on off, Dilruwan goes after it but can only mis-time a slog into the hands of Tamim at cover. Juggled, but taken at second attempt. To be honest, that isn't great bowling either. Right in the hitting arc, a better batsman would have done more 275/8

    0.6 leading edge back to Kulasekara. Dolly of a catch, really. Timed his jumped well and took the catch but lost the grip when he was trying to throw the ball up in delight. Grabbed it, swung it around and lost it while in the motion of throwing it up. Fair call in the end, Tamim shakes his head but has to walk off. 4/1
    15.1 superb delivery from Dilruwan. Completely does Soumya in. Drift, and dip. Flat delivery outside off, the ball pitches and rips past the outside edge. Soumya's feet are nowhere, his momentum takes him forward and it's an easy stumping for Chandimal. Fantastic bowling. Almost a no-ball, but he has a smidgen behind. 88/4
    2.6 that really is a horror shot from Sabbir and he's paid the price. This had the width alright, he threw his hands at it with the feet going nowhere. All he managed was a thick edge that was pouched safely by Dinesh Chandimal, who moved swiftly to his right. Sri Lankans don't hold back in celebrating the wicket. The man with whom they've had a few tiffs in the series is gone. 10/2
    3.3 hit on the back pad by a delivery that nips back in to beat the inside edge. The only bone of contention was the height. At the point of impact, the ball didn't have much distance to travel. He was given out on the field, so the decision could have been overturned only if the ball would have completely missed the stumps. On this occasion, ball tracking indicates the ball would have clipped top of middle and so the umpire's call will stay. Sri Lanka are all over Bangladesh like a bad rash. The pacers are turning it on here at the SSC. 11/3
    23.2 and Shakib goes! With that, it seems Bangladesh's hopes are gone too. His back was clearly troubling him, but he took the easy way out. Didn't try and soldier through a tough period. Not very good from the experienced man. Full delivery on off, Shakib stays in his crease and nails a drive straight to Gunathilaka who takes the catch on a second attempt. 118/6
    22.1 and goes straight through Mosaddek. That's a really poor stroke. A flat delivery on middle, Mosaddek mistakes a short length for a bad delivery. And exposes his stumps in a bid to cut. The ball skids on with a bit of turn and beats his extravagant cut to hit the stumps. That's an awful stroke. No room to cut. Put pressure on himself by playing too many dot balls. 111/5
    25.4 and gone. Mahmudullah perishes to a loose stroke. Bouncer down leg, Mahmudullah is through his pull too early and the ball kisses the glove on its way to the keeper. A golden chance for Mahmudullah to press his claim for a higher spot, but he's given it away. Bangladesh sink further 127/7
    44.1 slower delivery outside off, Mehedi takes it on the full but toe-ends it to the man at the edge of the ring at cover. Gutsy knock 209/9
    33.1 lured by the flight, looked to launch him over the ground but ended up hitting it flat to the bowler who took it right in front of his face on the followthrough. Had he missed, the ball would have hit him on the face. Wonder if he has dental insurance. Brings out the 'dab' celebration too. The resistance has ended. 155/8
    44.3 this is a length ball on middle which Taskin looks to mow over wide long-on but ends up getting it on the top half of his bat, which means there's more elevation than distance. The man coming in from the boundary had enough time to stop, settle underneath, then again run forward to complete the catch on the move. Sri Lanka's first win in eight ODIs. Series ends 1-1 210/10
