0.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to Tharanga, OUT, Mortaza strikes! He gets lovely inswing in to the left hander and lands it on a full length, he shuffles to work it across to the on side, exposes his legstump and he's trapped in front

WU Tharanga lbw b Mashrafe Mortaza 0 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 0/1   ST Jayasuriya 0* (0b)   Mashrafe Mortaza 0.3-0-0-1

2.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Sangakkara, OUT, Mortaza's on fire! Mortaza gets that late inward movement again and cranks up the pace as well, he lands it on a yorker length and Sangakkara is very late in getting his bat down to keep it out and the ball crashes on to the off and middle stumps, the delivery is very similar to the one which claimed Tharanga

KC Sangakkara b Mashrafe Mortaza 0 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 4/2   ST Jayasuriya 4* (6b 1x4)   Mashrafe Mortaza 1.2-1-0-2

Naeem Islam to Jayawardene, OUT, slower through the air and he gives it a lot of flight, Jayawardene bends his knee and slogs him with the turn down to Rubel at deep midwicket

DPMD Jayawardene c Rubel Hossain b Naeem Islam 28 (44b 0x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

Sri Lanka 75/3   ST Jayasuriya 42* (53b 6x4)   Naeem Islam 3.3-0-14-1

20.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to Jayasuriya, OUT, nice reflexes from Mortaza, he cleverly bowls the slower ball which stops on the batsman, he shapes to work it past the bowler but only succeds in tamely chipping it back to him, he dives forward, tumbles and completes the catch

ST Jayasuriya c & b Mashrafe Mortaza 54 (64b 7x4 0x6) SR: 84.37

Sri Lanka 95/4   CK Kapugedera 6* (9b 1x4)   Mashrafe Mortaza 5.5-1-20-3

25.4

Mahmudullah to Mubarak, OUT, he tucks it softly towards short midwicket, pushes the single, he challenges Raqibul who slides to his left and in one motion fires the throw to Mahmudullah who whips off the bails, the third umpire takes a look

J Mubarak run out 10 (14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Sri Lanka 124/5   CK Kapugedera 24* (24b 2x4 1x6)   Mahmudullah 1.4-0-11-0

26.6

Rubel Hossain to Mathews, OUT, he tries to pull a short ball straight over the bowler but it doesn't come off, he gets too early on the shot and the ball hits the top half of his bat and lobs tamely to Mortaza at mid=-on

AD Mathews c Mashrafe Mortaza b Rubel Hossain 2 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Sri Lanka 128/6   CK Kapugedera 26* (27b 2x4 1x6)   Rubel Hossain 4-0-22-1

27.3

Mahbubul Alam to Kapugedera, OUT, the ball skids through and cramps him for room, he tries to cheekily dab it away but gets a thick inside edge on to his stumps, Bangladesh are doing well to restrict Sri Lanka here

CK Kapugedera b Mahbubul Alam 28 (30b 2x4 1x6) SR: 93.33

Sri Lanka 130/7   T Thushara 0* (0b)   Mahbubul Alam 3.3-0-24-1

28.4

Rubel Hossain to Kulasekara, OUT, 125 kph, he hits the deck hard and the batsman hooks him from the line of the offstump and tries to clear deep square leg, the ball seems to dip on Naeem but he falls forward and manages to hang on to it

KMDN Kulasekara c Naeem Islam b Rubel Hossain 5 (5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 135/8   T Thushara 0* (2b)   Rubel Hossain 4.4-0-26-2

28.6

Rubel Hossain to Thushara, OUT, the bowler wins this battle, he bangs it in short of a length outside the offstump, he swivels and tries to hook and gets a thick edge to the keeper, seemed like a soft dismissal

T Thushara c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Rubel Hossain 0 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 141/9   M Muralitharan 0* (0b)   Rubel Hossain 5-0-32-3

30.3

Rubel Hossain to Mendis, OUT, he fires it on a full length on the offstump and Mendis shapes to smash that over the packed off side field but fails to get the desired elevation, he chips it to Ashraful who takes it over his head at short cover

BAW Mendis c Mohammad Ashraful b Rubel Hossain 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 147/10   M Muralitharan 6* (8b 1x4)   Rubel Hossain 5.3-0-33-4
