Kulasekara to Imrul Kayes, FOUR, airy, fullish on middle and he presents the full face , driving it uppishly over the outstretched hands of the bowler, who doesn't get his fingers to it, and gets it to the boundary

Bangladesh 7/0   Imrul Kayes 4* (2b 1x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 0.4-0-7-0

Welegedara to Imrul Kayes, FOUR, angling it on the pads and he cashes in, flicking it really fine to beat the fielder at fine leg

Bangladesh 21/0   Imrul Kayes 13* (13b 2x4)   UWMBCA Welegedara 1.5-0-8-0

Welegedara to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, the field is up and he launches that over mid-on, shortish but he went through with the shot, smacking it over the in-field

Bangladesh 32/0   Tamim Iqbal 11* (19b 1x4)   UWMBCA Welegedara 3.1-0-15-0

Welegedara to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, Tharanga misfields after running to his right from a squarish fine leg, whipped off the back foot and he fumbles to allow it through the ropes, the crowd roars

Bangladesh 36/0   Tamim Iqbal 15* (22b 2x4)   UWMBCA Welegedara 3.4-0-19-0

Welegedara to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, a rubbish full toss outside off and is dealt with appropriately as Tamim crashes it through point to beat third man, bigger cheers

Welegedara to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, three in a row, full on middle and leg, in the slot for Tamim who flicks it uppishly over square leg to the ropes

Bangladesh 44/0   Tamim Iqbal 23* (24b 4x4)   UWMBCA Welegedara 4-0-27-0

Dilshan to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, gave it some air and Tamim sensed a chance, rocking forward, bending low and slog-sweeping it over midwicket, the wicket has done nothing to prompt him to slow down

Bangladesh 71/1   Tamim Iqbal 40* (45b 5x4)   TM Dilshan 2.5-0-16-0

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

Bangladesh 83/4   Mushfiqur Rahim 7* (9b 1x4)   RAS Lakmal 2.3-1-7-2

Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, clubbed it, short of a length and smashed it over the bowler's head for a boundary, brave attempt and gave it a mighty swat

Bangladesh 89/4   Mushfiqur Rahim 12* (20b 2x4)   RAS Lakmal 3.5-1-11-2

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

Bangladesh 96/4   Mushfiqur Rahim 18* (28b 3x4)   RAS Lakmal 4.2-1-16-2

Kandamby to Mohammad Ashraful, FOUR, that's Ashraful's first boundary in 37 balls, amazing. Gives himself room, and goes with the spin over extra cover, clean shot

Bangladesh 128/4   Mohammad Ashraful 19* (37b 1x4)   SHT Kandamby 3.2-0-15-0

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

Bangladesh 147/5   Mahmudullah 10* (14b 1x4)   RAS Lakmal 5.5-1-24-2

Randiv to Mohammad Ashraful, FOUR, superb shot, goes inside-out, always good to watch, gets a length delivery, and gets under it, clearing extra cover with ease

Bangladesh 177/5   Mohammad Ashraful 44* (71b 2x4)   S Randiv 7.4-0-28-1

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

Bangladesh 187/5   Mohammad Ashraful 52* (77b 3x4)   RAS Lakmal 7.3-1-33-2

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

Bangladesh 192/5   Mohammad Ashraful 56* (78b 4x4)   RAS Lakmal 7.4-1-38-2

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   Mahmudullah 26* (37b 2x4)   RAS Lakmal 8-1-43-2

Randiv to Mahmudullah, FOUR, full and fast down the leg side, and he gets enough bat on it to beat short fine leg and get four

Bangladesh 210/5   Mahmudullah 34* (41b 3x4)   S Randiv 8.2-0-34-1

Randiv to Mohammad Ashraful, FOUR, good shot, goood shot, the leg-side field is strong, so he makes room crashes it through the extra-cover gap, all along the ground

Bangladesh 232/6   Mohammad Ashraful 69* (91b 5x4)   S Randiv 9.5-0-50-2

Kulasekara to Mohammad Ashraful, FOUR, nice shot, this time he breaches the on-side field, gets across, and scoops a length delivery short fine

Bangladesh 237/6   Mohammad Ashraful 74* (93b 6x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 9.1-1-43-1

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

Bangladesh 244/7   Naeem Islam 6* (4b 1x4)   RAS Lakmal 8.1-1-47-2
