Tri-Nation Tournament in Bangladesh - 3rd match

Bangladesh v Sri Lanka

Bangladesh won by 5 wickets (with 43 balls remaining)

1.4

Mahbubul Alam to Jayasuriya, FOUR, all too easy for the batsman, he slides it wide down the leg side and bowls it short, he has a wild swing at it and gets just enough bat to beat the keeper

Sri Lanka 4/1   ST Jayasuriya 4* (4b 1x4)   Mahbubul Alam 0.4-0-4-0

3.5

Mahbubul Alam to Jayasuriya, FOUR, pitches it up outside off and gives him plenty of room, he gets under it and scoops it high over mid-off, that's typical Jayasuriya

Sri Lanka 15/2   ST Jayasuriya 9* (10b 2x4)   Mahbubul Alam 1.5-0-11-0

5.3

Mahbubul Alam to Jayasuriya, FOUR, he errs by overpitching it outside off and Jayasuriya gets a big stride forward and smacks it over extra cover, that's not the length to bowl to him

Sri Lanka 21/2   ST Jayasuriya 13* (18b 3x4)   Mahbubul Alam 2.3-0-16-0

5.5

Mahbubul Alam to Jayasuriya, FOUR, grants him width again and the length and away movement is enough for Jayasuriya to get across and cut square of the wicket on the off side

Sri Lanka 25/2   ST Jayasuriya 17* (20b 4x4)   Mahbubul Alam 2.5-0-20-0

7.2

Rubel Hossain to Jayasuriya, FOUR, shot, he bangs it in fractionally short, he swivels and clubs it well wide of mid-on

Sri Lanka 36/2   ST Jayasuriya 24* (25b 5x4)   Rubel Hossain 0.2-0-4-0

7.5

Rubel Hossain to Jayasuriya, FOUR, full and wide outside off, it's an invitation for Jayasuriya as he smashes it on the front foot and comfortably clears backward point and cover

Sri Lanka 40/2   ST Jayasuriya 28* (28b 6x4)   Rubel Hossain 0.5-0-8-0

18.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Kapugedera, FOUR, gets a couple of paces down the track and crashes it past extra cover, the ball scorches through the turf and beats both fielders in the deep

Sri Lanka 84/3   CK Kapugedera 5* (3b 1x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 4.2-0-15-0

20.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Jayasuriya, FOUR, he picks the short length early this time, gets on top of the bounce and pulls it past square leg on one leg,he tried the same shot the previous ball

Sri Lanka 95/3   ST Jayasuriya 54* (63b 7x4)   Mashrafe Mortaza 5.4-1-20-2

24.4

Rubel Hossain to Kapugedera, FOUR, angles it on the pads, he shuffles and clips it away down to fine leg, the fielder is too square to cut it off

Sri Lanka 114/4   CK Kapugedera 16* (21b 2x4)   Rubel Hossain 2.4-0-18-0

28.2

Rubel Hossain to Kulasekara, FOUR, he errs by slipping it down the leg side, he shuffles and places it just wide of short fine leg, he bowls the wrong line and Kulasekara makes him pay

Sri Lanka 135/7   KMDN Kulasekara 5* (3b 1x4)   Rubel Hossain 4.2-0-26-1

29.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Muralitharan, FOUR, poor delivery, full and wide outside off and he gets behind the line and crashes it past cover and extra cover

Sri Lanka 145/9   M Muralitharan 4* (5b 1x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 5.5-0-23-0
