View dismissal MDKJ Perera c Anamul Haque b Arafat Sunny 64 61 44 7 1 145.45
13.3 what a catch again. Anamul Haque this time, and it's a huge one for Bangladesh. Kusal dances down and tries to slap Sunny over the midwicket fence, but Anamul jumps high, intercepts the ball above his head and keeps his balance, on one leg, just a few inches from the rope. 116/5
View dismissal TM Dilshan b Mashrafe Mortaza 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
0.6 gone! Ambitious shot when you're not yet off the mark. Dilshan tries to play the over-the-shoulder scoop to Mash, but the bowler has slowed it down. It pitches around middle, Dilshan misjudges the pace, and it crashes into middle and off. Big strike first over. The crowd is delirious. 7/1
View dismissal LD Chandimal* c Farhad Reza b Shakib Al Hasan 18 24 15 2 1 120.00
6.5 he hadn't played a decent shot after I talked him up, and he now perishes, holing out to long off. Chandimal ran down the pitch and tried to smash it for six, but he didn't have enough power in the shot. Fielder at long on leaps and takes it just inside the ropes. 61/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Nasir Hossain b Shakib Al Hasan 11 7 6 1 0 183.33
8.1 oh what a catch! It takes something special to dismiss Sanga at this ground, and Nasir Hossain provides just that. Sanga rocks back and plays that straight-ish pull that brought him about a billion runs in the Test match here. But this time, Shakib has got a man out there and Nasir sprints full tilt to his right about seven metres in from the fence, then throws himself to intercept the ball mid air. 77/3
View dismissal S Prasanna c Nasir Hossain b Arafat Sunny 4 6 4 0 0 100.00
9.5 gone, Nasir gets another catch and Sunny gets a wicket in his first over. Sri Lanka sliding here after such a good start. Sunny gives it some air and pitches on middle and leg. Prasanna goes for a big slog sweep, but can't get enough elevation. Nasir is waiting for it at deep-backward square. Swallows it with ease. 87/4
View dismissal AD Mathews run out (†Mohammad Mithun/Mashrafe Mortaza) 11 23 11 0 0 100.00
14.3 from Rubel Hossain, massive mix up. Mathews is lost somewhere near the non-strikers end. There might be a difficult word or two in the dressing room after this. Mathews drives it to midwicket and sets off straight away, calling Thisara through. But though Thisara responds in the affirmative and takes a few strides down the pitch, he suddenly decides against it and turns back. Only, by now, Mathews is almost at the non-striker's end. He is easily run out and leaves the field, shaking his head 120/6

View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c Shamsur Rahman b Mashrafe Mortaza 31 21 21 1 2 147.61
19.4 slower ball does him in. That's short-of-a-length on the stumps, Kule tries to pull it away but ends up hitting it high, not hard. Man at deep square leg settles nicely under it. 164/7

View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c Mathews b NLTC Perera 30 35 25 6 0 120.00
7.6 top edge, and Mathews takes a very, very good one, running back from midwicket. That should inject some fizz into the fielding effort. Thisara pitches short, Tamim goes for the pull and the ball was always going away from Mathews, but he turns and hares backwards, never taking his eye off the ball. He dives and takes it at a stretch. Those are tough catches to gobble. 64/2
View dismissal Shamsur Rahman c & b Mendis 22 28 15 4 0 146.66
6.1 oho! That's what Mendis can do. Shamsur doesn't pick the legbreak I think. Shamsur tried to push it away on the off side, but is too early on the shot, and possibly playing the wrong line as well. He lobs a simple chance to the bowler. Much-needed breakthrough for Sri Lanka. 52/1
View dismissal Anamul Haque c & b NLTC Perera 58 69 45 7 0 128.88
19.6 Oh! That's unfortunate for Bangladesh. Thigh high full toss. Could have hit it anywhwere, but he miscues it straight up in the air and Thisara Perera settles under the ball to take a catch. Is this a no-ball though? Umpires have sent it upstairs. It looks very tight, but since the on-field umpires didn't call a no-ball the third umpire couldn't definitively call it a no-ball. Could have gone either way, though. 166/7
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan b Kulasekara 26 22 17 2 1 152.94
13.3 and suddenly the Chittagong crowd is silent. Shakib plays the ugliest shot in an innings brimming with ungainly swipes. Kulasekara has bowled this more slowly, and Shakib misses, to turn around and find the leg stump bail has been disturbed. 107/3
View dismissal Nasir Hossain c NLTC Perera b Malinga 16 15 13 0 1 123.07
16.5 is he bowling a definitive over here? Another slower one, and it's full as well. Nasir has a huge swing at it, aiming at that long-on boundary, but he can only get a top edge. The man at mid off runs around and takes a good catch. 132/4
View dismissal Mohammad Mithun c Mathews b Kulasekara 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
17.2 his first ball in T20 international cricket, and Mithun Ali unselfishly swats at that one. Sadly for him it's gone straight to Mathews at a short-ish midwicket. Sri Lanka have made huge gains, thanks to the slower ball. 134/5
View dismissal Farhad Reza run out (NLTC Perera/†Sangakkara) 7 12 5 1 0 140.00
19.3 NLTC Perera to Anamul Haque, dot ball, and this is probably out. Reza was haring down the pitch after Anamul's outside edge dribble away to the keeper. Anamul wants to stay on strike though, and turns his partner back. Sanga lobs it to Perera at the non-striker's end who collects and underarms it at the stumps. Third umpire confirms the Reza was about six inches short. 158/6
