    5.4 Malinga snares another victim. Cleaned up. Full, swinging in late, on the middle and Tamim tries to drive, the ball curves in late to miss the bat and the furniture is disturbed. The top order is wobbling again. 13/2
    3.4 Malinga strikes. Bangladesh lose early wicket. Again. The story of the summer. It was full and outside off and it curved in a touch. Nafees is caught at the crease, has a stab at it as he tries to run it past the slips and ends up nicking to second slip. Quite a lame poke. 9/1
    14.1 Maharoof strikes, good length delivery angled in...leaves a gap between bat and pad and the ball goes through and strikes the top of the off stump. 26/4
    7.2 What a piece of great action. Malinga gets one to kick up from short of length, almost unplayable lifter around the off stump, Rahim is stunned into a poke, gets a thickish outside edge and Sangakkara flies to his right to take an acrobatic catch. Youtube moment. 13/3
    30.2 Ashraful is gone. It drifts in from outside the off stump, turns a touch, Ashraful tries to play a late cut and ends up guiding it in to Sangakkara's gloves. They appeal. Ashraful stands rooted and suddenly decides to walk as he sees Rudi about to get into action. 87/5
    40.5 Wicket no 298 for Jaysuriya. Floated short of length, on the middle and off, Aftab shapes to pull and ends up swatting it lamely to midwicket. Soft dismissal. Bangladesh teetering on the precipice here. 121/8
    37.3 And he reaps the reward. Flighted full and just outside off, Shakib goes for a sweep shot and plays all over it as the ball turns in to peg back the stump. Another one down. 111 for 6 111/6
    39.5 117 for 7 now. A run out. on the middle, flighted delivery, leans forward to work it past square leg. They rush across for a single, turn for the second but Jayasuriya fires in a accurate throw at Dilshan who grabs at it and the ball slips out of his hands and hits the sticks. The bails are off. It is out. 117/7
    44.2 Wicket no 299 for Jayasuriya. Tossed-up really full, outside off stump, Razzak took his front leg from the line and wanted to swing it to the on side but it was too full to go across and he sent it straight to long off. 128/9

    46.5 That's his 300th wicket! Jayasuriya has done it. He tossed it up outside off, Rasel went for a lofted drive but could not clear mid off. Jayasuriya is chuffed. He gets the ball from the umpire and walks off with it. The crowd are on their feet to applaud him. Trevor Penny and other Sri Lankan players in the balcony, also join in the applause. Congrats Jayasuriya. 137/10

    7.2 Gone! Shahadat gets his revenge. It hit the deck short of length and climbed above waist-high as it slanted across Tharanga who was squared-up a touch and had a fatal poke. 43/1
    15.3 And he is gone now. Similar delivery - short of length and outside off stump - Jayasuriya goes for another cut but does not keep it down and it goes straight to Aftab at backward point. Soft dismissal. 72/3
    10.3 Huge appeal and given out caught behind. Sangakkara doesn't look too happy. It was full in length and well outside the off stump, Sangakkara chased it, trying to force it through the off side. He must have got a thin nick and Rahim took the catch. They went up in appeal. Rudi Koertzen waited. Sangakkara was not going anywhere. Then, the fatal finger came up ever so slowly. Sangakkara was surprised, shaked his head as he went away. The snickometer fails to show any edge. Anyway, that's that. 58/2
    16.3 But he is gone now. Fab catch. Short of length and Mahela mistimes a pull to right of midwicket where Aftab takes a step before flinging himself in the air to take it. 79/4
    30.5 Chamara falls going for the winning shot. It was tossed up, slightly short in length and Chamara went down on the front knee and went for a pull shot but couldn't keep it down. Caught at deep midwicket. Ashraful looks very pleased with the wicket. He pumps his fist and screams in delight. 136/5
