    43.1 and gets a wicket off the very first ball as he pitches it short. Vandort goes for the pull and does not time it and ends up getting a top edge to Shakib at mid wicket. 121/3
    8.6 first blood. Mashrafe pitches the ball on the off stump and gets the ball to jag back in slightly as Warnapura is caught unaware and just shoulders arms. The ball thuds onto the back foot and Mashrafe, lets the appeal rip. Llong has no objection in giving it and rightly so 24/1
    40.3 fuller on the off stump, Sangakkara comes down the track and can't time the lofted stroke properly as he forces it to Ashraful, who takes the catch above his head at midwicket and lets out a war cry. Timely wicket that 119/2
    46.2 arm ball does it for Shakib as Mahela is playing for the spin and is beaten neck and crop as the ball sneaks into the gap between bat and the pad to hit the top of off stump. Shakib is mighty happy as he yells in approval of the wicket 135/4
    89.4 and thats a five wicket haul for Shakib as he gets Samaraweera to fish at a delivery outside off and manages to elicit the outside edge to first slip, where Junaid fumbles but takes it on the second attempt. Finally the curtains are down on the Lankan innings 293/10
    52.4 gone! this time the straight delivery does the trick as he has Dilshan groping for the spin. Dilshan like his captain earlier is bowled lock, stock and barrel. Well Shakib has these batsmen in a spin now 155/5
    57.1 short on the off stump, Prasanna can't resist the temptation to pull, which he does and gets a top edge to fine leg where Tamim Iqbal does no mistakes and takes the catch. Shahadat is pleased as a punch and why shouldn't he be ? 171/6
    82.4 now thats the wicket Bangladesh was searching for all day and is it late? Mashrafe pitches one on the off stump and gets it to move away a touch as Vaas feathers it to Rahim. Llong took a little time in giving it 270/7
    87.2 there he is weaving his spell on the batsmen, bowls one on the leg and middle line and gets to straighten it a touch. Dammika, comes forward and gets rapped on the front foot, signing good bye to this innings. Bucknor, as usual took some time before lifting the hand 285/8

    12.2 and Murali is away against his favorite opponents as Tamim lunges forward for a defensive stroke. He gets hit on the glove and Warnapura dives to his left at short leg to take the catch 44/1
    19.2 Vaas has his man now! Bowls a short delivery aimed at the ribs and manages to eke out an outside edge to keeper, Prassana. Imrul played well, but had to be there for a long time 68/2
    31.5 doosra does the trick for Murali as Junaid is looking to cut it away but all he manages is to guide it onto the stumps and Murali has wicket number 2 95/4
    25.5 and the packed off side field ploy works as Ashraful goes for the drive and does not manage to keep it down. Dilshan, stationed at cover, takes a catch diving to his left. It's a pity really that he has gone because Junaid is batting well at the other end 90/3
    38.2 beaten for pace and a stunned Raqibul walks off, Prasad lands it on the offstump and really gets it to fizz quickly, the ball hits the top of the offstump before Raqibul can even get his bat halfway down to cover the line 117/5
    48.2 and there's the wicket! outside the off stump, draws Mehrab forward and induces the outside edge to Mahela at first slip. They were wanting this wicket 158/6
    51.3 outside the off stump, comes forward and feathers it to Mahela at first slip. The tail is officially in now 162/7

    51.4 on the middle and straightening, Mashrafe pads it up and Murali goes up in glee thinking he has got the wicket and Bucknor agrees. So it's eight down for Bangladesh 162/8
    57.2 on the off and middle, Shahadat charges down the track and misses. Prassana does the rest as he stumps him and aids Murali in getting his 66th five wicket haul 176/9
    59.6 one over is enough to wrap them up, Murali flights it outside off, draws Alam forward, he doesn't defend properly and the ball brushes his pad after taking the edge and goes straight to Warnapura at forward short-leg 178/10

    7.4 first blood Tamim pushes the ball to cover and sets off for the single. Imrul is little slow in backing up and ends up paying the ultimate price as he is a metre short and Dilshan, runs around wagging his index finger and is back to his fielding position by the time he is done with his celebrations 40/1

    29.3 outside the off stump, Junaid is looking to leave it but the ball does not bounce as much as he expects it to and it kisses the glove on the way to first slip 124/3
    35.4 gone! deceives him with a straight delivery on the off stump, Raqibul is playing for the turn and looks back to see his stumps re-arranged. 144/4
    86.5 huge disappointment for the home fans, Vaas delivers from over the wicket, lands it on middle and leg, Ashraful shuffles a touch and tries to work it to the on side, the ball straightens and hits him low on the pad, Bucknor doesn't ponder over it too much and raises the finger, that was hitting the stumps 292/6
    47.1 Mehrab will not forgive himself for that shot, he decides to take on Murali by stepping down the pitch to cart him with the turn over mid-off but fails to clear Kapugedera, that's a gift for Sri Lanka 180/5
    120.2 what a strike for Sri Lanka and Shakib falls four short of a deserved ton! Prasad drags it full outside off, Shakib fetches that to drive but gets a thick inside edge onto his stumps, that death rattle will continue to ring in his ears for a while 403/7
    125.3 gone! Rahim wants to keep the runs flowing as he takes the front foot out of the way and plays a forceful shot on the leg side. Pity that he does not clear Dilshan, at midwicket but what an innings from the little 'Baby' 411/9
    122.3 edged and Mortaza has to go! Prasad swings it in and lands it on a fullish length, he's drawn forward and gets a thin edge to the keeper, Prasad persists with the appeal and wins it in his favour 409/8
    126.2 and thats tragic in the circumstances as Alam lets go of a booming drive and wants three runs. Unfortunately he slips and cant make it back in time to beat the throw at the keepers end and it's curtains for Bangladesh 413/10
