    29.1 Thirimanne pulls off a cracker of a catch at midwicket, Anamul flicked in the air, Thirimanne jumped and stretched out his hands over his head to reach the ball, but could only parry it behind him, he fell to the ground, recovered quickly enough to rush back and take it low with another dive 106/4
    18.2 given eventually by umpire Oxenford as Mendis implores a second time, tossed up on middle and leg and hitting him on the pad as he misses with the bat, was that headed down leg? Nope, replays show that hitting leg, umpire's call 74/1
    18.6 knocked him over, Mominul is rooted to the crease as Mendis tossed this up high, should have been forward really to such a full length, tries to play half-heartedly from the crease, and it spins away from middle and leg to uproot off stump 76/2
    21.5 they get Mushfiqur now, the captain goes down for a scoop, misses, and is hit on the pad with one that comes in with the angle, umpire Bowden agrees with Sanga's loud appeal, that was hitting middle and leg, replays say 87/3
    33.2 he's gone this time though, tried to repeat the stroke with another dash down the track, this one did not turn though, and the thick inside edge looped tamely to midwicket 119/5
    46.3 Nasir's struggle is over, he heaves at a short of a length ball and the mishit sails to Mahela who comes in from long on to take it 183/7
    44.3 off stump uprooted, Mahmudullah has been backing away outside leg, tried that again, but Lakmal homed this yorker quick and under the swish of the bat 174/6
    49.2 gone this time, a slower one from the back of the hand, it arrives full at him, but is also dipping and goes past his swinging bat and cuts into off stump 203/8

    0.2 he's gone second ball, a nippy back of a length delivery going across, Kusal has a go at it, and edges it through to the keeper 0/1
    23.1 Thirimanne holes out, he's gone for a big hit to a tossed up ball, but hasn't quite got the distance, Rubel has put in a run from long on, and taken a superbly judged catch at the edge of the straight boundary 75/5
    2.1 they have the big fish, Sanga is gone early, reaching out and trying a drive to one leaving him from a good length, and edging to first slip, came in at around chest height, popped out on the first try but was gobbled up on the second 6/2
    3.3 run out chance, and Bangladesh gleefully take it, Mahela is gone for a duck, Thirimanne punches to cover and sets off, Mahela responds with a sprint that takes him more than half way up the track, Thirimanne sees Mahmudullah get to the ball with a dive and abandons the idea of a run, Mahela has no chance of making it back as the throw comes in to the bowler, who does well to gather it on the run and take the bails off 8/3
    14.4 they break through again, beauty from Ziaur, angles it in back of a length and gets it to hold the line and rear up, Priyanjan has to play at it, and manages an edge that the keeper hangs on to with a tumble to his right 47/4

    39.3 he's been given this time, keeper went up as soon as he took this one, umpire Oxenford raises the finger, de Silva has had a big slog at this tossed up ball, there was a sound, the ball seems to have brushed the thigh pad 157/6
    47.1 confusion between the batsmen, and Bangladesh make the most of it, Perera smashed a full one back to the bowler, it hit his hands and went to mid off, they wanted to take the single, then hesitated, then scrambled for it, a direct hit was needed and a direct hit was produced by Rubel, catching Perera way short 193/7

Match Notes

Losing streak

33

With this, Bangladesh have lost 33 out of 37 matches against Sri Lanka. Their four victories have come from chasing. Food for thought?

Big lull

0

No. of boundaries hit by Thisara Perera in his last four innings, off 53 balls. He had hit 10 in 57 balls in an ODI before that

Long time ago

2009

The last time SL were down three wickets for 10 runs, or less, against Bangladesh. That match was also played in Mirpur

Not quite there

239

The average first-innings score at the SBNS in Mirpur

Not too far

25

Wickets by Ajantha Mendis in the Asia Cup, only Muttiah Muralitharan has more (30)

How to beat SL?

2:1

Sri Lanka's win-loss ratio at the SBNS stadium in Mirpur. They are unbeaten in this year's Asia Cup so far
