View dismissal WU Tharanga c Aftab Ahmed b Mohammad Rafique 26 68 37 3 0 70.27
14.2 superb catch by Aftab at backward point! Rafique drops in a rank short ball outside off stump, Tharanga punches off the back foot but fails to keep it down, and Aftab times his jump to perfection, plucking it in the air with his right hand, losing control, but then bobbing it up and taking in cleanly as he falls to the ground 98/1
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Habibul Bashar b Abdur Razzak 109 159 87 7 7 125.28
47.6 all over, tamely! Jayasuriya comes forward and reverse-sweeps a full delivery, but ends up scooping a catch to Bashar at short fine leg, who holds onto one this time...very, very good innings from the entertainer 300/4
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Aftab Ahmed b Shakib Al Hasan 46 80 70 2 2 65.71
35.3 and he's gone! Jayawardene skips down the ground, gets under it and checks his shot, spooning it high in the air and down to Aftab moving in from wide long-off 202/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Tamim Iqbal b Syed Rasel 56 115 55 3 1 101.81
44.4 this time he goes! Sangakkara comes forward and lofts the ball down to long-on, though he was looking to chip it over the infield, and Tamim takes a simple catch running forward...the drop from Bashar cost two runs 261/3

  Bangladesh innings (target: 311 runs from 46 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c †Sangakkara b Malinga 6 16 7 1 0 85.71
3.4 edged and gone! Malinga responds with a short of a length, moving delivery outside off stump that kicks off the surface, Tamim stands leaden-footed and fishes at it, and Sangakkara snaps up the regulation edge 7/2
View dismissal Shahriar Nafees lbw b Vaas 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
0.5 gone! As expected, Vaas works closer and closer to off stump, getting one to land just in line with the stumps, full and jagging back in, Nafees is caught deep in the crease, in front of off, and the umpire has little hesitation in giving that out! 1/1
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim c Dilshan b Maharoof 6 48 33 1 0 18.18
11.1 and he's gone, freeing the arms and cutting a pretty poor, wide delivery hard to Dilshan at backward point, who moves to his left and holds the catch above his head! 26/4
View dismissal Aftab Ahmed c Jayasuriya b Malinga 12 18 16 2 0 75.00
7.3 gone! Malinga drops short, at a lively pace, Aftab takes his eyes off it as he has a go, pulling off the splice of the bat, the ball goes up in the air and comes down near square leg, two men converge on it, Jayasuriya says dont touch it, thats mine, keeps his eyes on it the entire time and dives forward to pluck it! Not bad for a 37-year-old, eh? 20/3
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan b Muralitharan 4 41 20 0 0 20.00
16.4 the doosra pegs back leg stump! This one was ripped up, landing on middle and spinning in past a clueless, leaden-footed Saqibul to rerrange the furniture 41/5
View dismissal Habibul Bashar* run out (Jayawardene) 18 57 47 2 0 38.29
25.3 Jayasuriya to Mohammad Ashraful, good fielding ! Tossed up on leg stump, Ashraful works it to short fine leg again, sets off for the single, Jayawardene swoops in and flips the ball back onto the stumps, a direct hit, and Bashar is gone! 66/6
Mohammad Ashraful not out 45 69 63 6 0 71.42
View dismissal Mashrafe Mortaza c Tharanga b Arnold 7 12 14 0 1 50.00
29.4 yeah, he's not wasting time! Again he goes after one outside off stump, but the leading edge splices off the edge of the bat and goes up towards backward point, where Tharanga judges it well and takes in behind him as he runs back, no more biffs for Mortaza as Arnold gets a wicket 80/7
View dismissal Mohammad Rafique c Maharoof b Dilshan 7 19 17 0 0 41.17
34.4 short and a fraction wide of off stump, Rafique stands rooted and swings across the line, doesnt time it all and the ball soars up in the air and comes down near the deep midwicket ropes, Murali and Maharoof converge, Maharoof calls for it, Murali wants it, they both collide...looks like Murali really wants to take the catch...but in the end it settles in Maharoof's hands and neither fielder is injured..would've been ugly had they collided hard though 101/8
View dismissal Abdur Razzak c †Sangakkara b Malinga 0 6 2 0 0 0.00
35.5 edged and gone! Malinga lands one on a shortish length around off stump, ball rears and takes the outer edge of the bat through to Sangakkara! Malinga strikes for his third 111/9
View dismissal Syed Rasel run out (Dilshan) 0 5 1 0 0 0.00
36.6 Muralitharan to Mohammad Ashraful, all over! Tossed up on leg stump, Ashraful just drops it at his feet and calls Rasel for the run, a good throw comes in from Dilshan at midwicket and Sangakkara takes it on the first bounce and whips off the bails in one swift movement and Rasel is just short of the crease, despite the full stretch of the bat forward... 112/10
