    52.1 that's a magical bowling change! Ashraful flights it on the pads, the ball doesn't turn and Warnapura tries to turn it away to the on side, he's very lazy on the shot and the ball hits him low on the pad in line with the legstump, Llong raises the finger, Ashraful lets out a war cry much like how he got to his century in Mirpur 194/5
    0.4 what a start for Bangladesh! Mortaza gets one to nip back in off a good length from outside off, it hits him below the knee roll in front of the legstump and he's gone 1/1
    2.4 it's a double-strike for Mortaza and Bangladesh are over the moon, Mortaza pitches it on a length outside off and cramps Sangakkara for room as he tries to drive through the line, he just prods forward and gets a thick inside edge on to the stumps 7/2
    17.3 Bucknor takes an eternity to give it out, Shakib flights it on the corridor outside off and gets it to turn late, Mahela gets his bat very close to the body to defend and it appears as if he edges it, all the fielders were super confident he edged it and Bucknor is hesitant initially, I need to see another replay of that, whatever it if, it's a very good shout and I won't be surprised if there was an edge 39/3
    28.4 timber! Shahadat bowls it outside off and invites the punched drive through the covers, Samaraweera doesn't move his feet much and fails to make contact with the meat of the bat and he only manages a thick inside edge which rolls on to his stumps, you should have seen the anger in Shahadat's face after getting the breakthrough 75/4
    85.2 bowled round his legs and what a wonderful sight for Enamul, he lands it on the rough outside the legstump from round the wicket, Dilshan shapes to work it don to midwicket but gets himself into a tangle, the ball spins back, creeps through the day light between his legs and hits the stumps 367/6
    91.6 Bucknor gives him the slow death, Shakib floats it from outside off and the ball comes in with the angle, Kapugedera gets only a half stride forward but the ball keeps a little low and strikes him low on the pad, Bucknor ponders for a while before giving him out 376/7
    92.1 that's two wickets in as many balls! Mortaza delivers from over the wicket, the ball lands on a good length marginally in line with the legstump and holds its line, Vaas is caught at the crease and expects it to rise a bit more but the ball hits him line with the legstump, umpire Llong is convinced, the height was fine 376/8
    93.5 very similar to the one that got Kapugedera, the ball angles in from outside off and straightens, Murali gets forward to defend but fails to get bat behind ball, the ball hits him low on the pad bang in front of middle and Bucknor has an easier decision to make 384/9

    93.6 Bucknor has an early morning workout, Shakib gets it to angle in towards middle and off, Fernando gets a good stride forward but the ball doesn't bounce too much, it hits him in line with the stumps, Shakib has 4 for 109, he's a dangerous proposition in the first-innings 384/10

    0.6 probes away on the line outside off and induces the mistake, Vaas gets it to move away late off the pitch and Tamim prods across a bit and gets a feather touch, the edges carries at a good height to the keeper 0/1
    8.5 he doesn't offer a shot, Vaas gets this one to jag back in off the pitch, Kayes wants to leave it but the ball hits him above the front pad and in line with the stumps, Bucknor gives him out. In face Vaas set up the dismissal the previous ball and when you don't offer a stroke you're asking for trouble 26/2
    28.1 I don't think Junaid even picked that up, Fernando gets it to swing away late across the left-hander and at a good pace from over the wicket, the ball heads for the base of the offstump but Junaid's too late in getting his bat down to dig it out and the bails are splattered. He was clearly beaten for pace and movement and he looked dazed as he walked back 65/4
    11.6 Mendis strikes in his second over, he gives it a bit of air and cuts back on the pace, it's the straighter ball, he lunges forward to defend and is hit low on the pad and in line with the stumps, umpire Llong raises the finger immediately 33/3
    49.1 well that reverse sweep was bound to get him in to trouble, Murali delivers from round the wicket, Ashraful plays the reverse sweep a little too early and the ball lobs off the toe edge of the bat to Prasanna Jayawardene, they make a quick enquiry to Nigel Llong who immediately raises the finger 122/7
    38.4 that's the zillionth lbw today, it lands in line with the middle stump and straightens, he lunges forward to defend but the ball hits him low on the pad, Bucknor adds another to his lbw tally, he's having a party today 90/5
    38.5 that's two in two! Mendis pitches it fuller on the middle stump and gets it to straighten, Shakib is totally confused how to deal with it and is squared up on the backfoot as the ball hits his back pad, plumb in front of the stumps and Mendis us on a hat-trick 90/6
    52.3 Mushfiqur gives Mendis the charge but fails to read the spin or the length, he drops the length short, he steps down and realises the folly of the shot but it's too late as Prasanna whips off the bails 136/8
    76.2 he tries to heave him for another six - getting on his knees - but this time he fails to get the distance and finds Dilshan at deep square leg 208/10
    57.5 lands it on middle and bowls the doosra, Enamul stays at the backfoot to play it to the on side but fails to pick the variation, he's squared up on the backfoot and Prasanna claims a thin edge 145/9

    17.2 that's a double-strike for Bangladesh! He's trapped on the pads and Nigel Llong is convinced, however the replays showed the ball pitching just outside the legstump line and angling across to the offstump, the ball hits him on the base of the pad, it technically cannot be given out but well, the decision's been made 55/2
    16.5 Ashraful's turning out to be the man with the golden arm here! Prasanna gets across his stumps and tries to chip it on the up with the turn but he ends up playing a very tame shot to Shakib at short midwicket who dives forward and claims a fairly easy catch 55/1
    58.1 I told you before he has the knack of picking up an early wicket, Sangakkara can't believe what's happened, it was a fraction short outside off and turning away, the ball was begging to be hit but the batsman goes back and across and tries to drive through the offside very half-heartedly, the inside edge rolls on to his stumps, Ashraful lets out another war cry and Sangakkara just stands there for a while 165/4
    44.3 Mahela's struggle finally comes to an end, he gets forward very early to drive, the ball sort of stops on him and as a result he tamely chips it straight to Kayes at short cover, Haque delivered that from round the wicket 123/3
    98.3 classical spinner's dismissal and Shakib will want to see at least 50 replays of that, it lands on a good length on middle stump and straightens, the sudden change of angle foxes Samaraweera on the backfoot, the ball hits him in line with the offstump and Bucknor thinks over it for a few seconds, Samaraweera falls for a well-compiled 77 310/5
    115.6 Another classical left-arm spinner's dismissal and it has foxed Dilshan no end, Enamul lands it on the rough from over the wicket, the batsman prods forward to defend but the ball turns and skids through much quicker than expected and it clips the offstump 396/6

    10.1 almost identical to his first-innings dismissal, Vaas gets one to straighten and Tamim gets a half prod forward and gets a thin edge through to the keeper, he wasn't sure whether to play or leave it, Vaas doesn't even have to look back at the umpire 22/2
    7.3 that was quick, Mendis lands it just a shade outside off and gets it to move away with the angle, he pokes his bat forward and gives Mahela catching practice at first slip 18/1
    15.2 as straight as it can get, Mendis drops it on a good length and the ball doesn't deviate off the pitch at all, it hits him on the pads plumb in line with the middle stump as he gets forward and it's an easy call for Bucknor 32/3
    24.5 unplayable reverse swing and Fernando will be proud of that, he gets the ball to curve in very sharply and Raqibul looks helpless as he tries to get his bat down to dig it out, he;s bowled right through the gate and the middle stump is knocked back 52/5
    19.2 loose shot and Bangladesh slide further, Mendis drops it short and bowls very wide of the offstump, Ashraful doesn't pick the googly as he attempts a booming square cut and only manages an under edge to the keeper, Bucknor gives it out immediately, it wasn't a very good ball so Ashraful has himself to blame 42/4
    49.2 paddles it towards fine leg and he pushes had for the second run, Vaas fires his throw to the keeper and Rahim slides, the decision is referred, Rahim unfortunately has his bat raised in the air over the crease and his thumb is on the line when the bails are dislodged, Rahim goes for a fighting 43 and Bangladesh slide to a defeat by 465 runs 158/10
    41.3 Dilshan's having a superb game here! He flights it and draws Shakib forward and he gets a big stride down, he fails to drag his foot back as Prasanna whips off the bails, he walks 144/6
    45.2 Dilshan isn't done for the game yet, he delivers from round the wicket, he tries to sweep and gets hit on the base of the pad, Bucknor reckons that would have hit 154/7
    45.6 the umpires consult on this one, he tries to work it to the on side but the ball appears to strike the back of the bat and lobs to Mahela at first slip, Mahela grabs it handed, falls to his left and ensures the ball stays close to his chest, Bucknor calls for assistance from Nadir Shah the third umpire and after studying the replays for few minutes gives him out 154/8
    47.3 Dilshan can't make a single mistake! He fires this one full and on the stumps from round the wicket, he plays down the wrong the wrong line and is bowled through the gate 156/9
