    11.2 caught at slip, Fernando pitches the ball short of a length on middle stump and angles it across Tamim who hardly moves his feet and plays with the bat away from the body, he gets a thick edge through to Jayawardene at waist height 45/1
    15.5 it's Nafees' turn to go, the carnage continues, Fernando bowls the heavy ball short of a length and angles it into Nafees, Nafees moves back in his crease and closes the face of the bat to play the ball through midwicket, the ball hits the inside edge and bounced off the thigh pad to Silva at gully 56/5
    11.6 Fernando has two in the same over! He bowls full and straight, Imran takes half a stride across his stumps and is caught on the crease when the ball thuds into pad, Asoka de Silva takes his time but eventually raises the finger 46/2
    12.3 another one goes, Maharoof pitches on a good length on off stump, gets the ball to bounce and angle across Shakib who doesn't move his feet while playing away from his body, Sangakkara gleefully accepts the edge 47/3
    13.6 Ashraful falls, Fernando gives him another short delivery, Ashraful tries to play a pull but mis-times it and gets a top edge that flies somewhere mid-way towards fine leg, Sangakkara and Jayawardene, at first slip, both give chase but Maharoof runs in from the fine-leg fence, slides as he reaches the ball, and takes a well-judged catch 52/4
    22.3 87mph from Malinga, full and straight on off and middle stump, the ball swings back into Aftab who is caught on the crease as he tries to flick and gets hit on the pad plumb in front, Rudi Koertzen doesn't hesitate in sending Aftab on his way 76/6
    35.6 the ninth wicket falls, Bandara pitches it on leg stump inducing Mushfiqur to sweep against the turn, the ball hits the top edge and lobs up to Tharanga who takes a dolly at short fine leg 148/9
    30.4 gone! Reza gets a bit too aggressive this time, attempting to go downtown again against Jayasuriya, but only manages to hole out to a diving Tharanga at long-on 118/7
    33.3 caught and bowled! Bandara bowls it flat on leg and middle stump, Mortaza leans forward and closes the face of the bat, trying to play it to midwicket against the spin, the leading edge lobs up towards silly mid-on and Bandara runs in front of the non-striker and takes an easy catch 131/8
    40.3 that's the end of the match, Rasel moves on to the back foot and nudges towards midwicket for a quick single, Dilshan charges in from midwicket, the pick up is spot on and he fires the throw into Sangakkara who whips off the bails in a flash with Razzak inches short of his crease 164/10
