14.1

Lakmal to Raqibul Hasan, no run, short of a length outside off, held its line, lets it go

14.6

Lakmal to Raqibul Hasan, OUT, brilliantly taken by Samaraweera, rose up after landing short on the off, tried to play off the back foot with an angled bat, got a thick edge and it was flying past a widish slip but he hurled himself to his right and plucked it one-handed

18.1

Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, shortish on middle, defended to midwicket from the crease

18.2

Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, bowled it full on the off, driven hard and straight and Lakmal does well to bend low and field it off his own bowling

18.3

Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, short of a length and he punishes it, slashes it wide of a diving Dilshan at point, he may have got a finger to it but it would be unfair to put it down as a drop, races to the ropes

18.4

Bangladesh 83/4   RAS Lakmal 3-1-7-2
20.1

Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, slower bouncer and he doesn't pick it, tried to drag it past midwicket but was too early into the shot, looked pretty ugly

Bangladesh 90/4   RAS Lakmal 4-1-12-2
22.1

Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, the extra bounce and the away movement beats him, short of a good length, trying to dab it to third man, misses

22.2

Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, takes the risk, goes for the pull to that rising delivery and gets the top edge that beats fine leg, Welegedera could have put in a better effort there

Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, hurled it short on the off, steps back and knocks it in front of point

22.4

34.1

Lakmal to Mohammad Ashraful, 1 run, short and wide, and dabbed away for a single to deep point

34.2

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, no run, beaten, moving away from the line of the ball and looking to open the face, and plays inside the line

34.3

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, no run, pitched up this time, Mahmud gets forward and across and shoulders arms

34.4

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, no run, and again, the ball is shorter and he looks to run it down and is beaten. A nothing shot really, because there is a slip waiting

34.5

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, FOUR, this time he goes for the positive full-faced shot and gets much better results. Makes room, takes a back-of-a-length delivery on the up and lofts it over mid-off

34.6

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, no run, is beaten on the pull shot, late into the shot, gets hit on the thigh pad and refuses a leg bye, which could have been risky

Bangladesh 147/5   RAS Lakmal 6-1-24-2
36.1

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, no run, thigh-high fulltoss, Mahmud is a bit surprised and plays back to the bowler. Seems he lost his footing in the run-up

36.2

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, 1 run, short and pulled away to fine leg

36.3

Lakmal to Mohammad Ashraful, no run, yorker, leg-stump line, and played towards midwicket

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, 1 wide, another bumper tried, but misses his line and is wided down the leg side

36.6

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, 1 run, short again, but this one doesn't rise, and is worked away to fine leg

Bangladesh 155/5   RAS Lakmal 7-1-28-2
43.1

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, 1 run, starts off with a yorker, just outside off, and he gets a single to third man

43.2

Lakmal to Mohammad Ashraful, no run, back of a length, tucks Ashraful up, and he can't get it off the square

43.3

Lakmal to Mohammad Ashraful, FOUR, Ashraful finds the boundary again, and gets to his 20th ODI fifty. Short, and at 120ks, it's a gentle bouncer and is pulled away safely to the midwicket boundary. An uncharacteristic, hard-working fifty

43.4

Lakmal to Mohammad Ashraful, 1 wide, another bouncer, this is sharper, but too high

43.4

Lakmal to Mohammad Ashraful, FOUR, this is in the Ashraful region, length ball, perfect length for him to play his pick-up shot over the on-side field. He is looking purposeful now

43.5

Lakmal to Mohammad Ashraful, 1 run, low fulltoss on the pads, he will get just a single to long-on, off the toe end of the bat

43.6

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, FOUR, this fulltoss gets the treatment, though, too much on the pads, and he gets under it and lofts it over midwicket. Superb over for Bangladesh, 15 off

Bangladesh 197/5   RAS Lakmal 8-1-43-2
49.1

Lakmal to Naeem Islam, FOUR, good effective shot, Lakmal is looking for a yorker, ends up bowling a low fulltoss, and he gets across and swipes it over midwicket

49.2

Lakmal to Naeem Islam, SIX, that's a biggie, lovely shot, they are dancing in the aisles in Dhaka, back of a length, and he sits back, waits and pulls it over the midwicket boundary

49.3

Lakmal to Naeem Islam, SIX, ho ho ho, Naeem is on fire here, he has set the crowd into a frenzy, another bouncer, and again he clears his front leg, and pulls, straighter this time, but clears long-on

49.4

Lakmal to Naeem Islam, 2 runs, finally gets the yorker right, but he digs it out towards cover and hares back for two, he doesn't want anyone else to take strike

49.5

Lakmal to Naeem Islam, no run, length ball, outside off, driven powerfully to sweeper-cover, refuses the single, interesting

49.6

Lakmal to Naeem Islam, 2 runs, fulltoss, high, but this time he doesn't connect well enough, yet they scamper through for two to wide of long-on

Bangladesh 260/7   RAS Lakmal 9-1-63-2
