    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
