    4.5 And Tamim is gone. Vaas gets it to curve away off a length, Tamim tries to dab it to third man but edges it behind to Dilshan. Remember, Dilshan is the 'keeper. Sanga has not taken the field 10/1
    16.5 Nazimuddin is run out now. He just kept running despite Raqibul shouting NO No. It was turned to square leg, Raqibul had taken a step or two but shouted out to his partner to go back but Nazim couldn't stop his charge. 96/3
    11.5 Another pull that goes awry. Tushara picks up a wicket with a short-of-length delivery that skids on to the batsman quicker than he anticipates. Nazim had survived a few times but Ash's pull went straight up and Dilshan got under it. 53/2
    31.2 The doosra does the trick again. It landed just outside off, sucked Raqibul forward and he pushed inside the line and nicked it to Mahela at first slip 158/6
    21.5 got him this time, doosra again, bounced and there was a bit of width, Mushfiqur tries a cute dab which goes straight to Jayawardene at slip 116/4
    25.5 done in by the doosra. It landed on the middle and straightened, Kapali missed the sweep and was caught in front of the stumps. 135/5
    32.6 Mendis picks his first wicket. Flicked a loopy delivery on the middle and leg, Mahmudullah pushed tentatively at it and edged it to leg gully 162/7
    35.1 lands it on the middle stump line, slight turn and Razzak went for the slog sweep and dragged it on to his stumps. The wickets are tumbling at a rapid rate here. The end is nigh. 168/8
    38.3 All over. Charges down the track, has a heave and edges it to Mahela at first slip. Emphatic win for Sri Lanka. Murali and Mendis. What a potent combo. The latter half of Bangladesh couldn't handle the spicy combination. Double Jeopardy. 174/10
    37.6 Murali bags the five-for. Mortaza top edged a sweep to Silva at short fine leg.Murali waits for the catch to be taken, claps in delight and turns back to take the cap from Taufel who breaks into a smile himself. Completely mesmerizing stuff from the magician. 172/9
