ICC World Twenty20 - 19th match, Group F

Bangladesh v Sri Lanka

9.4

Mahmudullah to Silva, 1 run, short of a length and on the off, a bit of extra bounce and turn there and Chamara Silva can only cut awkwardly to the off side

9.6

Mahmudullah to Silva, no run, flat and on the off, slightly quicker too, defended back down the pitch

Sri Lanka 61/3   LPC Silva 1* (2b)

10.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Silva, 1 run, on the stumps, tossed up a touch, Chamara Silva sweeps but won't get too many

10.4

Shakib Al Hasan to Silva, SIX, Sweet hit! The moment Chamara Silva struck that ball, going down on one knee, you knew it was going far. That came off the meat of the bat and sailed over midwicket

10.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Silva, 1 run

Sri Lanka 71/3   LPC Silva 9* (5b 1x6)

11.1

Mahmudullah to Silva, no run, from round the stumps, seam-up delivery outside the off stump, backs to the leg-side and tries to cut but misses

11.2

Mahmudullah to Silva, 1 run, fuller, outside off stump, lunges forward to drive

11.5

Mahmudullah to Silva, 2 runs, full in length, outside the off stump, Silva goes back to cut it through cover point

11.6

Mahmudullah to Silva, no run, quicker one, goes on straight and past the outside edge. Good variation.

Sri Lanka 77/3   LPC Silva 12* (9b 1x6)

12.4

Shakib Al Hasan to Silva, no run, comes in from outside off, bounces high as Silva goes down on his knee to sweep and the ball hits him on the chest. Rahim screams for a lbw but it was going over

12.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Silva, no run, fuller and again Silva is beaten on the sweep shot. There is a shout for lbw but it was going down the leg side

12.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Silva, OUT, third time lucky. Full and straight, Silva fails to connect with his sweep again and this time is caught in front

LPC Silva lbw b Shakib Al Hasan 12 (10m 12b 0x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 84/4   LPC Silva 12 (12b 1x6)
