    13.6 plays across a straight ball, which came back in just enough and is struck in front of off stump! Think that might have kept low and he was up on his toes trying to flick it through square leg. Poor shot selection sees him forsake another good start 63/3
    0.4 and just as I type that, Shamsur guides one to the second slip! Another awayswinger again and Shamur was lured into fishing outside his off stump. Regulation edge goes low and to his left, Senanayake, who is nicknamed Jonty, dives and clings on to a very sharp chance. 2/1
    12.2 edged and taken by Sanga, what a ball! what a take! Tossed up and lured him forward and out of his crease. His balance was totally shot and Mominul was looking to play against the turn as he closes the face of the bat and the outside edge is substantial, but Sanga moves fluidly to his left behind the stumps and takes a lovely grab 57/2
    41.6 the extra ball does the trick for Sri Lanka. Mushi's steered it straight to point! He had kept out so many good yorkers, but this time he was searching for a single to retain strike. Tried to guide it to the left of point, but Senanayake dives to his left and snares a good, low catch. MIght well be the end of Bangladesh's chase tonight. Terrific innings from their captain, if only he'd had a little support 220/9
    21.2 holes out at long-off and Shakib is furious with himself. It was an innocuous delivery, tossed up outside off. He just couldn't hold himself back, charges down the track and lofts it straight into the hands of Senanayake. Falling to a part-timer at this stage of the game, that's terrible! 116/4
    28.3 straight to deep midwicket! That is the softest of dismissals. Flighted on middle and leg, he clears his front hip and heaves it away. But there is a man in the deep and he swallows it quite easily. Nasir is distraught, his captain at the other end is even more so. This is terrible batting from Bangladesh. They need partnerships, not big hits 153/5
    29.3 Mahmudullah is gone run-out now! Bangladesh are imploding! Mushi took a few steps forward and then decides no and has sold his partner down the river. Flighted ball on middle and leg, turned behind square. Short fine leg is incredibly quick to the ball and sends a good flat throw to the bowler, who takes off the bails. Mahmudullah had given up, that was how far he had charged out 155/6
    33.1 he's guided it straight into the hands of the keeper! Sanga picks up a good low catch. He was looking to guide the length ball to third man but gets too fine an edge. There was a little question about whether it carried or not, but Sanga claimed the catch and he is right. It did not bounce 170/7
    40.5 so he'll go over midwicket, but he cannot clear the man in the deep. The search for a big hit consumes another Bangladesh batsman. Picks up the one that turns into him and slogs wildly but all he manages to do is drop it down the throat of Thisara Perera 217/8
    not out
    42.6 that's it! Leading edge to cover and so Sri Lanka have swept the tour, winning the one-day series as well! Good length ball turning in on off stump, he had shuffled across to clip it through midwicket, but had closed the face too early and succumbs 228/10
