    5.1 Tharanga loses his patience and gives it all away, Nazmul sprays it wide outside off and tempts the batsman to have a wild swing at it, he stays rooted to the crease and gets a thick outside edge to the keeper, the crowd has gone wild and why not 4/2
    0.1 what a start! He taps it softly towards extra cover and there;s plenty of hesitation in the running, Jayasuriya starts then he's sent back and Shakib flings himself to his left, gathers the ball and hits the target, the batsman was nowhere in the picture 0/1
    43.1 it's THAT man Shakib again! Sangakkara shapes to work him through the on side but plays too early, the leading edge nearly clears the bowler but Shakib leaps up and takes it with his right hand 114/7
    5.3 Mahela's nightmare continues, Nazmul hits a good length outsiede off and gets it to shape away late, a very circumspect Jaywardene pokes at it very lazily and the outside edge flies to Mushfiqur who flings himself to his right and takes it brilliantly 4/3
    6.2 it's 5 for 4 and Mortaza is ecstatic! He pitches it up outside off and gets it to move away, Kapugedera is drawn forward and he ends up tamely edging it to Junaid second slip, Sri Lanka are wobbling and they desperately need some damage control 5/4
    7.6 he hits the timber and noise across the stadium is deafening, Nazmul lands it on a good length just a shade outside off, Thushara shapes to push at it but it is a half-hearted shot and he manages a thick inside edge onto his stumps 6/5
    22.2 suicidal single and Mubarak pays the price, he taps it with soft hands to mid-off and sets off for a very risky run, Naeem Islam gathers the ball and finds Mubarak well short of his ground with a direct hit 51/6
    not out
    43.3 that's a double strike! Shakib lands it just outside off and Kulasekara shapes to cut, he plays a loose drive without moving his feet and the inside edge trickles on to the stumps 114/8
