    0.5 edged, and taken! Slinga Malinga is back! Length ball on off stump, and again moving away after pitching. Liton comes slightly forward and then tries to defend, but the ball takes the outside edge and flies straight into the hands of the diving first-slip fielder 1/1
    0.6 flattens his stumps! It's a first-ball duck, and that's a Malinga classic. Full on off stump, and swinging into Shakib's body. He tries to drive towards mid on, but the ball sneaks between bat and pad, and then crashes into off stump. Late swing from Malinga does the trick. A nightmare delivery to face for your first ball. 1/2
    49.3 Mendis takes a screamer! And it needed a catch like that to end a remarkable innings. Full on off, and he drilled it straight over the non-striker's head. Mendis at long on takes a beauty. Bangladesh are all out for 261 261/10
    25.3 Finally a catch is taken good length delivery that probably bounced more than Mithun expected. He wanted to hit across the line to midwicket, but only got a leading edge that went steepling. The 'keeper called for it early and caught it safely. Malinga's fairytale comeback continues 134/3
    26.2 Taken at cover! Wild heave across the line that only got a top edge. Dhananjaya has been Sri Lanka's best fielder and luckily he was the one nearest to the ball. Moved to his left, and dived to grab the ball. 136/4
    27.6 Malinga has four! shortened his length and got it chest high on the legside. He tried to paddle it fine but only got a top edge that looped towards the keeper, who had a fairly easy take. 142/5
    33.4 reflex catch from Lakmal! Slower ball on off, and Mehidy tries to execute the straight drive. Comes off the side of the bat, and Lakmal - on his followthrough - bends his knees and takes a very difficult catch to his left. The ball almost popped out of his fingertips there, but he managed to recover and complete the dismissal 175/6
    38.6 sliced to cover point! Slightly faster one from Dhananjaya, and he bowls this wider than usual. Mashrafe looks to free his arms, but the bat turns in his hand, and the shot pops straight into the safe hands of Upul Tharanga 195/7
    42.4 full around leg stump, and he goes for a wild slog towards the leg side. Hits his front leg, and the lbw appeal is turned down. They steal a leg bye as well, but Mathews wants to review. It's going to be close if the ball pitched in line. Impact and height makes it look like Rubel is out, but where did the ball pitch? We're waiting... and the impact's in line! Three reds, and Rubel must depart 203/8
    46.5 chance of a run out! And Bangladesh are all out three overs before their full quota of overs. It was a full toss on off stump, and he tapped it straight down the ground. Lakmal stops the ball, then the mid-off fielder sees the batsman running down the wicket, and therefore he composes himself and throws at the keeper 229/9

    2.6 chopped on! back of a length on the stumps, coming into the batsman and Tharanga is cramped for room. Wrong choice of shot, he tried to steer it down to third man but only gets the under-edge and the ball crashes into the stumps 28/2
    1.6 loud shout Erasumus doesn't give it, and Bangladesh review. The question is did it pitch in line. Full and on the stumps, struck the right-hander on the pads. And it's pitched on leg-stump. Three Reds - and Bangladesh have their first wicket. Kusal Mendis falls first ball. 22/1
    9.2 that's close And given! Goes a bit wider of the stumps, draws him forward to defend but beats the bat and strikes pad. That looked close and the finger went up quickly. No reviews left for Sri Lanka either 38/4
    4.3 That's a gonner! Ball nipped back in from offstump and struck Dhananjaya flush in front of the stumps. He's been given out immediately but goes for the review after a brief consultation with Kusal Perera. And the review confirms what the naked eye suggested - three big reds, and Sri Lanka have not just lost a batsman, but a review too. 32/3
    17.2 plumb! Rubel strikes in his first over, just as he does so very often. Length ball on off stump angling in, and Mathews misses the leg-side flick. Hits his front leg, and impact's on middle stump. Question marks over the height, but umpire Erasmus thought that was out, and therefore Mathews must go back 63/6
    16.1 harakiri! Out first ball after the break. Full outside off, and spinning into his body. Works it to the leg side, and Shanaka is sent back by Mathews halfway through the run. The throw from midwicket is sharp, and Mehidy breaks down the stumps at the non-striker's. Mathews definitely the one to throw his partner under the bus 60/5
    18.5 sliced to Rubel at point! Tosses this up outside off, and Perera wants to go for the biggie. Tries to slog across the line, and his attempted shot has been top-edged to the infielder 69/7
    34.1 there's the breakthrough! The wrong'un from Mosaddek! Lands wide outside off and spins further away. Thisara misses the drive after coming down the ground, and the wicketkeeper Liton Das makes absolutely no mistake 120/9
    25.2 through the gates! Length ball on middle, and stayed a bit low. He tried to work this across the line, and the ball crashes into the stumps. It's the offcutter from Fizz, actually, and that's wicket No. 8 for Bangladesh 96/8
    35.2 fourth time lucky! Full on off, and the leg-side slog is drilled straight to the sub fielder at mid on. He fumbles a few times, but eventually manages to hold on. Celebrations all around. Sri Lanka lose to Mushfiqur Rahim by 20 runs. On a more serious note... Bangladesh win by 137 runs! 124/10
