16,17,18,19 March 2013 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Kulasekara to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, immediate impact! big impact. He bowls a full delivery angling in from round the wicket and Tamim plays outside the line, that ball was crashing on to the off and middle stump. Big blow that one. Tamim came forward but not fully. The umpire raised his finger immediately

Tamim Iqbal lbw b Kulasekara 10 (29m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 52.63

Bangladesh 16/1   Jahurul Islam 6* (23b)   KMDN Kulasekara 4-0-10-1

Lakmal to Jahurul Islam, OUT, length delivery on off stump, the batsman dabs it to the leg side for what seemed like an easy single, but a direct hit comes from the fielder at mid-on and things look close now!! Oh my god! Where did that come from. Ashraful is a gonner! He was running that without a bother in the world, the fielder threw it towards the stump without any hope, but he has got Ashraful 6 inches short of the crease. A lightning bolt on a clear day, that's what I call it. Eranga was the fielder

Mohammad Ashraful run out 16 (75m 47b 2x4 0x6) SR: 34.04

Bangladesh 51/2   Jahurul Islam 14* (79b)   RAS Lakmal 3-1-6-0

Eranga to Jahurul Islam, OUT, oh no! He has run out of patience! He tries to cut the length delivery outside off, the length was probably not there for the cut, and he ends up edging it to the keeper. He played away from the body there. The pressure of not scoring at a decent rate was showing on him for the last two overs

Jahurul Islam c †Chandimal b Eranga 33 (172m 129b 2x4 0x6) SR: 25.58

Bangladesh 100/3   Mominul Haque 27* (43b 2x4)   RMS Eranga 8.3-2-22-1

Herath to Mahmudullah, OUT, caught at slip! It's the first forceful shot that Mahmudullah has attempted and it has resulted in his wicket. The batsman saw the fuller length and he went for a big drive, without moving his feet, he edges it to the wicketkeeper, who gets hit on his knee and the ball lobs up towards gully. Angelo Mathews takes a couple of steps and dives full length to take a smart catch

Mahmudullah c Mathews b Herath 8 (39m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.76

Bangladesh 128/4   Mominul Haque 46* (72b 2x4)   HMRKB Herath 11.3-5-15-1

Herath to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, oh no, he has misjudged the length of that delivery completely. He stays back to play that one but he should have gone forward. The ball sneaks between the bat and the pad as he tries to defend it from the crease. The ball was actually quicker too and he should have expected it as he was hurried twice by such deliveries in the previous over. It hits the off stump and it doesn't look great on the batsman's part

Mushfiqur Rahim b Herath 7 (24m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 53.84

Bangladesh 152/5   Mominul Haque 63* (95b 3x4)   HMRKB Herath 14.3-5-25-2

Herath to Mominul Haque, OUT, oh he has got him first ball, this was the slider that is fired across the left-hander, it draws Mominul forward and the ball goes past the outside edge, the keeper immediately goes up in appeal and the umpire is convinced too. But the batsman goes back disappointed as he thought he hadn't touched it. Another big wicket for Sri Lanka

Mominul Haque c †Chandimal b Herath 64 (140m 98b 3x4 0x6) SR: 65.30

Bangladesh 163/6   Nasir Hossain 10* (7b 1x4)   HMRKB Herath 15.1-5-28-3

Herath to Sohag Gazi, OUT, beats the batsman in flight! Gazi comes down the pitch, but this one was bowled slow and Gazi was nowhere near the pitch of the ball, it dipped on him and turned past the outside edge, resulting in an easy stumping for Chandimal. Another one for Herath

Sohag Gazi st †Chandimal b Herath 32 (78m 62b 3x4 0x6) SR: 51.61

Bangladesh 222/7   Nasir Hossain 35* (68b 2x4)   HMRKB Herath 25.4-6-65-4

Kulasekara to Abul Hasan, OUT, caught at second slip! Wicket off the first ball with the new one! It was full, floater, swinging away from the left-hander, Abul Hasan stayed in the crease and limply hung his bat, the ball took a healthy outside edge and Karunaratne makes up for the drop earlier with a smart low catch to his left

Abul Hasan c Karunaratne b Kulasekara 4 (12m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

Bangladesh 232/8   Nasir Hossain 41* (75b 2x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 16.1-2-48-2

Kulasekara to Rubel Hossain, OUT, caught at mid-on! The end is nigh and it's coming fast. Kula bowls a fuller length delivery, swinging in like it always does for him, and Rubel goes for an aerial drive, his bat turns in his hand and he ends up giving a gentle low catch to Herath at mid-on

Rubel Hossain c Herath b Kulasekara 0 (4m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 232/9   Nasir Hossain 41* (75b 2x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 17-3-48-3

Herath to Nasir Hossain, OUT, he takes No. 5! Nasir went for a sweep off a quicker delivery as their was a gap at short fine leg, but he came too far across the stumps and was hit on the thigh pad infront of the stumps

Nasir Hossain lbw b Herath 48 (115m 87b 2x4 1x6) SR: 55.17

Bangladesh 240/10   Robiul Islam 1* (3b)   HMRKB Herath 28.3-6-68-5
