    3.6 he's bowled 'em, what a strike early on for Bangladesh, Mahela is gone with a nothing stroke, length delivery outside off stump, angled in a shade, Mahela leaves a big gap between bat and pad as he ends up wafting tentatively across the line, the ball sneaks through and takes out off 19/1
    9.2 oh boy, Nazmul is all over the Sri Lankans, this time Dilshan has played on, he had become a touch wary after those two big wickets, but that is just not his game, this time he tries to force a length ball through the off side, with no foot movement, the ball was not wide enough, and he ends up getting an inside edge on to the stumps, some start for Bangladesh 32/3
    7.2 oh dear, Sanga has smacked a pitched up delivery straight to extra cover, nothing much in the delivery, it was widish and slanted across Sanga, who got forward and thumped it straight to the fielder, Bangladesh celebrate with glee, Sanga walks off quickly 29/2
    39.5 sharp catch from Shakib, Kapu cannot believe it, he had smashed this full delivery inside-out but it carried low to Shakib at extra cover, the former captain goes low to hold on 169/5
    31.6 unfortunate, how unfortunate is that for Thirimanne, he has been stumped off Rahim's pads, he missed the nudge as this one went down the leg side, it all happened so quickly that Rahim was in no position to collect the ball, it rolled onto the stumps off his pad with Thirimanne's momentum having taken him outside the crease, Bangladesh breaking through before the batting Powerplay 120/4
    45.4 important strike, Tharanga goes caught behind, to a full away swinging delivery just outside off, Tharanga bent across, tried to run it away but only managed a thick edge to Rahim 204/8
    40.6 Shakib strikes, Maharoof going for the cut to a tossed up ball that straightened and skidded, gets an edge through to Rahim 175/6
    42.2 slow left-arm strikes once more, Kula given leg-before as he pushes forward, could there have been an inside edge, if there wasn't he was gone, Shakib getting the flat delivery to skid on, replays show it would have struck middle 183/7

    49.1 Mashrafe has been outstanding today, fools Malinga with a slower length ball, he ends up having a slog all around it, off stump is rattled 230/9
    49.5 pull falls short of deep square leg, who lets rid of the ball quickly with a sharp throw to the keeper, Rahim has the bails off before a diving Lakmal can get in 232/10

    19.2 he is gone this time, big wicket, Tamim has cut this shortish ball in the air and point has held on to a sharp catch, tumbling low to his right, still a long way to go for Bangladesh 116/4
    1.4 he was not looking comfortable with the one coming in, and it has got him on the fourth attempt, Kula gets it to jag back in from a good length, Nazimuddin still wants to force it through the off side, ends up playing a loose stroke from the crease, and inside-edges onto the stumps 8/1
    6.2 and Jahurul has thrown it away, with Tamim in such supreme touch at the other end, saw Lakmal pitching it short, went for the pull belatedly, and ended up spooning it to squarish midwicket 39/2
    7.1 massive strike, Kula has bowled Rahim, superb delivery, fullish enough to make him go for the off-drive, and swings in late to go past the bat and hit off 40/3
    23.2 that is close, that is plumb, Shakib is gone, tosses it up, gets it to drift in, lands on middle, does not turn away, skids in with the angle, Shakib is caught on the crease and caught plumb in front, that was taking out leg 135/5
