View dismissal Tamim Iqbal b Malinga 0 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 85.2 mph, and that's SL's first. Full and swinging in prodigiously. It was closer to the feet so Tamim was hustled for pace too. Swung back in the air by a stump or two. Tamim struggles to get his feet out the way and the ball sneaks between bat and pad to hit middle and leg stump. Malinga is elated. 0/1
View dismissal Soumya Sarkar c NLTC Perera b Sanjaya 29 20 3 1 145.00
5.5 79.5 mph, Bangladesh lose another. They're falling away. Is that a wise decision? It was good thinking but awful execution. The slower delivery on leg, Sarkar backs away and looks to hit the ball over mid-off, but can only skew the ball down the throat of long-on. He's thrown away a fantastic chance. 57/3
View dismissal Sabbir Rahman run out (Prasanna) 16 14 2 0 114.28
5.1 from Sanjaya, good batting. Full outside off, pushed towards cover. Prasanna runs in and effects a direct hit at the bowler's end. And Sabbir is short. Looked like he was veering away, instead of going in straight lines. And that could have been the margin of a run and a wicket. Out comes the dab from Prasanna. That's not very good running, can't be let down by simple basics at this level. 57/2
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim b Gunaratne 8 9 1 0 88.88
8.2 53.2 mph, misses his shot and is bowled. Another poor shot from Mushfiqur. A slow delivery on off, offcutter. Gets low, looks to paddle a sweep over the keeper but misses the straight delivery. It knocks into off stump. Not an 8.2 overs shot. 70/4
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan c Gunaratne b Prasanna 11 15 0 0 73.33
11.1 52.7 mph, one more. Bangladesh stumbling along. A full delivery from Prasanna. Shakib tries to hit the ball through cover, but can only skew the ball off the outside half to point. No timing at all. 82/5
Mosaddek Hossain not out 34 30 3 0 113.33
View dismissal Mahmudullah b Malinga 31 26 3 0 119.23
18.1 85.4 mph, Malinga's fantastic again in execution. Follows Mahmudullah, who backs away. It's a yorker. mahmudullah tries to do something but carves a guide straight into his middle stump. Just couldn't do much with that. 139/6

View dismissal MDKJ Perera c Soumya Sarkar b Taskin Ahmed 77 53 9 1 145.28
18.1 80.1 mph, taken. Good bowling from Taskin. Back o a length on middle, Kusal backs away, looks to hit the ball straight but can only lob the ball to Soumya at mid-off. One of a very few deliveries Kusal has mis-timed. A special innings from Kusal. 147/4
View dismissal WU Tharanga* c Mustafizur Rahman b Mashrafe Mortaza 24 23 4 0 104.34
6.5 70.8 mph, Tharanga picks out short third man. Good length delivery outside off, gets some lift from the pitch. Tharanga can't keep his guide down. Picks out Mustafizur who dives forward and takes a neat catch. Too late? 65/1
View dismissal EMDY Munaweera c & b Mashrafe Mortaza 8 6 1 0 133.33
8.4 71.2 mph, a soft dismissal. Slower delivery again from Mortaza, Munaweera backs away and chips a simple return catch to Mortaza. Caught in two minds because of that wily line and length. Followed Munaweera, cramped him for room 79/2
View dismissal DAS Gunaratne run out (Sabbir Rahman) 17 18 1 0 94.44
15.3 from Mohammad Saifuddin, why wasn't that out? He may still be out, though. Asela is run-out. A high full toss on middle and leg, Asela misses a flick. But did he get some bat on it. The ball ricochets towards cover. Asela isn't quick across the pitch, maybe because of the body blow he just wore. Labours towards the other end. Sabbir runs in from cover, picks up, turns around and effects a direct hit at the bowler's end to find Asela well short. That's fantastic fielding. 120/3
