ICC World Cup - 16th match, Group B

Bangladesh v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 198 runs (D/L method)

14.2

Mohammad Rafique to Tharanga, OUT, 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

WU Tharanga c Aftab Ahmed b Mohammad Rafique 26 (68m 37b 3x4 0x6) SR: 70.27

Sri Lanka 98/1   ST Jayasuriya 63* (51b 5x4 4x6)   Mohammad Rafique 0.2-0-1-1

35.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Jayawardene, OUT, 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

DPMD Jayawardene c Aftab Ahmed b Shakib Al Hasan 46 (80m 70b 2x4 2x6) SR: 65.71

Sri Lanka 202/2   KC Sangakkara 25* (31b 1x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 7.3-0-30-1

44.4

Syed Rasel to Sangakkara, OUT, 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

KC Sangakkara c Tamim Iqbal b Syed Rasel 56 (115m 55b 3x4 1x6) SR: 101.81

Sri Lanka 261/3   LPC Silva 28* (31b 3x4 1x6)   Syed Rasel 9.4-0-56-1

47.6

Abdur Razzak to Jayasuriya, OUT, 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

ST Jayasuriya c Habibul Bashar b Abdur Razzak 109 (159m 87b 7x4 7x6) SR: 125.28

Sri Lanka 300/4   LPC Silva 40* (41b 4x4 1x6)   Abdur Razzak 9-0-81-1
