Tri-Nation Tournament in Bangladesh - Final

Bangladesh v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 2 wickets (with 11 balls remaining)

0.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to Tharanga, OUT, what a start! He taps it softly towards extra cover and there;s plenty of hesitation in the running, Jayasuriya starts then he's sent back and Shakib flings himself to his left, gathers the ball and hits the target, the batsman was nowhere in the picture

ST Jayasuriya run out 0 (1m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

Sri Lanka 0/1   WU Tharanga 0* (1b)   Mashrafe Mortaza 0.1-0-0-0

5.1

Nazmul Hossain to Tharanga, OUT, Tharanga loses his patience and gives it all away, Nazmul sprays it wide outside off and tempts the batsman to have a wild swing at it, he stays rooted to the crease and gets a thick outside edge to the keeper, the crowd has gone wild and why not

WU Tharanga c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Nazmul Hossain 2 (25m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

Sri Lanka 4/2   KC Sangakkara 1* (15b)   Nazmul Hossain 2.1-2-0-1

5.3

Nazmul Hossain to Jayawardene, OUT, Mahela's nightmare continues, Nazmul hits a good length outsiede off and gets it to shape away late, a very circumspect Jaywardene pokes at it very lazily and the outside edge flies to Mushfiqur who flings himself to his right and takes it brilliantly

DPMD Jayawardene c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Nazmul Hossain 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 4/3   KC Sangakkara 1* (15b)   Nazmul Hossain 2.3-2-0-2

6.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Kapugedera, OUT, it's 5 for 4 and Mortaza is ecstatic! He pitches it up outside off and gets it to move away, Kapugedera is drawn forward and he ends up tamely edging it to Junaid second slip, Sri Lanka are wobbling and they desperately need some damage control

CK Kapugedera c Junaid Siddique b Mashrafe Mortaza 1 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Sri Lanka 5/4   KC Sangakkara 1* (17b)   Mashrafe Mortaza 3.2-1-4-1

7.6

Nazmul Hossain to Thushara, OUT, he hits the timber and noise across the stadium is deafening, Nazmul lands it on a good length just a shade outside off, Thushara shapes to push at it but it is a half-hearted shot and he manages a thick inside edge onto his stumps

T Thushara b Nazmul Hossain 1 (8m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

Sri Lanka 6/5   KC Sangakkara 1* (18b)   Nazmul Hossain 4-3-1-3

22.2

Rubel Hossain to Mubarak, OUT, suicidal single and Mubarak pays the price, he taps it with soft hands to mid-off and sets off for a very risky run, Naeem Islam gathers the ball and finds Mubarak well short of his ground with a direct hit

J Mubarak run out 16 (65m 32b 2x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 51/6   KC Sangakkara 28* (71b 3x4)   Rubel Hossain 3.2-2-9-0

43.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Sangakkara, OUT, it's THAT man Shakib again! Sangakkara shapes to work him through the on side but plays too early, the leading edge nearly clears the bowler but Shakib leaps up and takes it with his right hand

KC Sangakkara c & b Shakib Al Hasan 59 (189m 133b 6x4 0x6) SR: 44.36

Sri Lanka 114/7   MF Maharoof 32* (64b 2x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 8.1-1-20-1

43.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Kulasekara, OUT, that's a double strike! Shakib lands it just outside off and Kulasekara shapes to cut, he plays a loose drive without moving his feet and the inside edge trickles on to the stumps

KMDN Kulasekara b Shakib Al Hasan 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 114/8   MF Maharoof 32* (64b 2x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 8.3-1-20-2
