    0.2 oh that's dropped, no it's taken, and how! Anamul edged the ball outside off straight to second slip where Senanayake dropped it and the ball was going to fall in front of first slip Mathews who jumped forward to got both hands under the ball and Bangladesh are 0 for 1 0/1
    19.4 that's gone high in the air but it's beyond Malinga's reach. Shamsur heaved and the leading edge went beyond the reach of mid-off fielder. But wait, Sangakkara has appealed for a run out because Shamsur's bat got stuck just before he made it to the crease for the second run and Sanga took the bails off. Shamsur had crossed the crease but his feet are in the air, very hard to call if he was out of the crease for sure. The third umpire has to make a call though and he calls it out 114/3
    14.4 oh he has handed it straight to point! Got more room to free his arms outside off, cut it straight into the hands of Dilshan as he failed to find the gap this time 79/2
    37.1 oh Mushfiqur is gone! Mathews pitched this one outside off on length but Mushfiqur went across completely, looking to scoop it fine on the leg side but only manages an edge down leg to the keeper. That's the big wicket SL wanted 162/9
    22.2 oh and another run out chance, or has he made it? Shafiq pushed the ball to point and wanted the single but a flat throw from an agile Malinga helped Sanga take the bails off just in time and a diving Shakib could not make it, he has to go back 119/4
    28.3 Senanayake strikes after building a lot of pressure, het gets Nasir. It was a conventional and flighted offspinner outside off, Nasir stepped forward to drive and handed an edge to Mathews to first slip 133/5
    28.5 oh and one more, now we know why the short leg fielder was there! Mahmudullah played the ball with the turn to the leg side and it went straight to Priyanjan at short leg, he's gone for a duck 133/6
    31.4 and another one falls, Bangladesh are crumbling here! Gazi went for a wild slog for a ball that was coming in and got a leading edge to the cover region and Vithanage ran back towards the boundary to take a very good catch 142/7
    35.3 Mathews strikes now, another twist in the tail. Mathews angled it across, Sunny drove away from the body and got a faint edge which was taken by Sanga easily 161/8
    39.2 there's a mix-up and it's all over for Bangladesh! Rubel clipped the ball to midwicket and they set off for a single but Rubel hesitated and it was too late by then. Al-Amin had crossed him and Rubel ran towards the non-striker's end but Mathews had taken the bails off by then 167/10
