Bangladesh tour of Sri Lanka, 2nd ODI: Sri Lanka v Bangladesh at Colombo (RPS), Jul 23, 2007
Sri Lanka won by 5 wickets (with 113 balls remaining)
23 July 2007 (50-over match)

Malinga to Shahriar Nafees, OUT, Malinga strikes. Bangladesh lose early wicket. Again. The story of the summer. It was full and outside off and it curved in a touch. Nafees is caught at the crease, has a stab at it as he tries to run it past the slips and ends up nicking to second slip. Quite a lame poke.

Shahriar Nafees c Jayawardene b Malinga 6 (15m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Bangladesh 9/1   Tamim Iqbal 0* (7b)   SL Malinga 1.4-0-5-1

Malinga to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, Malinga snares another victim. Cleaned up. Full, swinging in late, on the middle and Tamim tries to drive, the ball curves in late to miss the bat and the furniture is disturbed. The top order is wobbling again.

Tamim Iqbal b Malinga 3 (25m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 17.64

Bangladesh 13/2   Tushar Imran 0* (2b)   SL Malinga 2.4-1-5-2

Malinga to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, What a piece of great action. Malinga gets one to kick up from short of length, almost unplayable lifter around the off stump, Rahim is stunned into a poke, gets a thickish outside edge and Sangakkara flies to his right to take an acrobatic catch. Youtube moment.

Mushfiqur Rahim c †Sangakkara b Malinga 0 (7m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 13/3   Tushar Imran 0* (8b)   SL Malinga 3.2-2-5-3

Maharoof to Tushar Imran, OUT, Maharoof strikes, good length delivery angled in...leaves a gap between bat and pad and the ball goes through and strikes the top of the off stump.

Tushar Imran b Maharoof 4 (47m 30b 0x4 0x6) SR: 13.33

Bangladesh 26/4   Mohammad Ashraful 7* (19b 1x4)   MF Maharoof 7.1-3-9-1

Jayasuriya to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, Ashraful is gone. It drifts in from outside the off stump, turns a touch, Ashraful tries to play a late cut and ends up guiding it in to Sangakkara's gloves. They appeal. Ashraful stands rooted and suddenly decides to walk as he sees Rudi about to get into action.

Mohammad Ashraful c †Sangakkara b Jayasuriya 29 (94m 59b 1x4 0x6) SR: 49.15

Bangladesh 87/5   Aftab Ahmed 33* (57b 2x4)   ST Jayasuriya 3.2-0-16-1

Bandara to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, And he reaps the reward. Flighted full and just outside off, Shakib goes for a sweep shot and plays all over it as the ball turns in to peg back the stump. Another one down. 111 for 6

Shakib Al Hasan b Bandara 15 (29m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.69

Bangladesh 111/6   Aftab Ahmed 41* (74b 2x4)   HMCM Bandara 9.3-0-39-1

Dilshan to Aftab Ahmed, 1 run, OUT, 117 for 7 now. A run out. on the middle, flighted delivery, leans forward to work it past square leg. They rush across for a single, turn for the second but Jayasuriya fires in a accurate throw at Dilshan who grabs at it and the ball slips out of his hands and hits the sticks. The bails are off. It is out.

Farhad Reza run out 2 (7m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Bangladesh 117/7   Aftab Ahmed 45* (80b 2x4)   TM Dilshan 0.5-0-3-0

Jayasuriya to Aftab Ahmed, OUT, Wicket no 298 for Jaysuriya. Floated short of length, on the middle and off, Aftab shapes to pull and ends up swatting it lamely to midwicket. Soft dismissal. Bangladesh teetering on the precipice here.

Aftab Ahmed c Jayawardene b Jayasuriya 47 (107m 85b 2x4 0x6) SR: 55.29

Bangladesh 121/8   Abdur Razzak 1* (1b)   ST Jayasuriya 6.5-0-25-2

Jayasuriya to Abdur Razzak, OUT, Wicket no 299 for Jayasuriya. Tossed-up really full, outside off stump, Razzak took his front leg from the line and wanted to swing it to the on side but it was too full to go across and he sent it straight to long off.

Abdur Razzak c Mubarak b Jayasuriya 3 (23m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Bangladesh 128/9   Shahadat Hossain 5* (13b)   ST Jayasuriya 8.2-0-27-3

Jayasuriya to Syed Rasel, OUT, That's his 300th wicket! Jayasuriya has done it. He tossed it up outside off, Rasel went for a lofted drive but could not clear mid off. Jayasuriya is chuffed. He gets the ball from the umpire and walks off with it. The crowd are on their feet to applaud him. Trevor Penny and other Sri Lankan players in the balcony, also join in the applause. Congrats Jayasuriya.

Syed Rasel c Mubarak b Jayasuriya 3 (12m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

Bangladesh 137/10   Shahadat Hossain 9* (18b)   ST Jayasuriya 9.5-0-31-4
