    29.4 Vithanage has done it! Squirts through his defences and his stumps have been disturbed! Looped up and targets the rough as Tamim strode forward for an expansive drive through the covers, it turns between bat and pad and he's outta here. Magnificent delivery from the part-timer 71/1
    34.3 this time it's the offspinner's turn to rattle the stumps! Gorgeous flight outside off as he lures Shamsur forward to defend. Gets an inside edge which sneaks through, clips his pads and timber! Shamsur has to walk back, with only 10 minutes left for lunch 81/2
    53.5 caught in the crease and he's plumb in front! This is flatter and full on middle. Poor decision to go back to play that because that makes him a little slow to bring the bat down in line of the ball and he's struck quite low on the pads. Easy decision for umpire Llong 151/3
