15.3 caught by cover! Why why why! He again charges out and tries to go inside out over extra cover but ends up hitting it high in the air. Three fielder on the off side converge - two from cover and one from the deep, but it's the fielder from cover who was running outwards who takes an excellent catch with the ball coming from behind him 97/2
    12.5 he has got the batsman with a quicker one. Ash went to the back foot when he should have been forward. The ball pitches around off stump and just turns in to beat the bat and hits Ash right in front. But was there an inside edge? It looks like it from the front-angle, but not very easy to tell. Ash certainly thinks so. But it looked plumb to the naked eye 77/1
    17.6 gone! caught behind! Some sense needed here! He has already had a good over and he charges out to play what?? It was a back of length delivery wide outside off, Jahurul tries to punch it through off, gets a big outside edge straight into the hands off the keeper 119/3
    19.2 gone! madness! Stupidity! Suicide! The batsman drops the ball right in front towards the bowler and they call for a single. It's in the hands of the bowler when Mush is parallel to him trying to get to the other end. He could have taken an aim for 10 seconds and done the job, but Thisara hits it in one go. Gone by miles 126/4
    not out
    21.4 goes! Reverse sweep! Why Mahmudullah Why! It was a straight delivery, pitches in line, hits him in line as the batsman misses his super cute shot! 144/5
    24.4 gone! it was a brute of a delivery, short of length keeps rising on the batsman and just moves a touch away too, the batsman tries to fend it off but gets a faint edge to the keeper, the fielder erupt. 166/6
    24.6 caught at extra cover! The procession continues. It was bowled quick on short of length right over the stumps, Zia moved outside leg stump and tries to slap it over extra cover, but the ball comes too quickly to him and he ends up giving a tame catch which the fielder takes diving forward 166/7
