Bangladesh tour of Sri Lanka, 2007 / Commentary

Bangladesh in Sri Lanka Test Series - 2nd Test

Sri Lanka v Bangladesh

Sri Lanka won by an innings and 90 runs

Overs 0-50

18.4

Fernando to Mohammad Rafique, no run, snorter of a delivery to get first up, superbly-directed bouncer that kept coming at his body. Rafique sways away in the last moment

18.5

Fernando to Mohammad Rafique, no run, full this time and almost nailed him. Speedy and on off, Rafique pokes and gets an inside edge that richochets onto the pads

18.6

Fernando to Mohammad Rafique, no run, back of a length, on middle and leg, tapped away to the off side

Bangladesh 48/7   Mohammad Rafique 0* (3b)

19.2

Muralitharan to Mohammad Rafique, no run, driven to mid-off

19.3

Muralitharan to Mohammad Rafique, 2 runs, offbreak, dangerous glide from Rafique and it's wide of slip. They complete two but it could have easily been another wicket

19.4

Muralitharan to Mohammad Rafique, no run, tapped down the ground back to the bowler

19.5

Muralitharan to Mohammad Rafique, no run, doosra that time and he doesn't read it, lunges forward and pushes his bat, no clue about that one

19.6

Muralitharan to Mohammad Rafique, OUT, That's a dolly! Offbreak turning from leg to middle, Rafique takes a mighty swipe at it but picks out the fielder at deep square leg. Vaas waiting there and snaps up the simplest of catches. Poor stroke considering the field setting

Mohammad Rafique c Vaas b Muralitharan 2 (6m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Bangladesh 51/8   Mohammad Rafique 2 (8b)
Overs 0-50
