Vaas to Shahriar Nafees, OUT, 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!

Shahriar Nafees lbw b Vaas 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 1/1   Tamim Iqbal 1* (2b)   WPUJC Vaas 0.5-0-1-1

Malinga to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, 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

Tamim Iqbal c †Sangakkara b Malinga 6 (16m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Bangladesh 7/2   Mushfiqur Rahim 1* (12b)   SL Malinga 1.4-0-6-1

Malinga to Aftab Ahmed, OUT, 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?

Aftab Ahmed c Jayasuriya b Malinga 12 (18m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Bangladesh 20/3   Mushfiqur Rahim 1* (19b)   SL Malinga 3.3-0-10-2

Maharoof to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, 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!

Mushfiqur Rahim c Dilshan b Maharoof 6 (48m 33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 18.18

Bangladesh 26/4   Shakib Al Hasan 1* (8b)   MF Maharoof 1.1-0-5-1

Muralitharan to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, 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

Shakib Al Hasan b Muralitharan 4 (41m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Bangladesh 41/5   Habibul Bashar 8* (22b 1x4)   M Muralitharan 1.4-0-3-1

Jayasuriya to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, 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!

Habibul Bashar run out 18 (57m 47b 2x4 0x6) SR: 38.29

Bangladesh 66/6   Mohammad Ashraful 15* (28b 2x4)   ST Jayasuriya 0.3-0-0-0

Arnold to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, 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

Mashrafe Mortaza c Tharanga b Arnold 7 (12m 14b 0x4 1x6) SR: 50.00

Bangladesh 80/7   Mohammad Ashraful 22* (39b 3x4)   RP Arnold 0.5-0-7-1

Dilshan to Mohammad Rafique, OUT, 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

Mohammad Rafique c Maharoof b Dilshan 7 (19m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 41.17

Bangladesh 101/8   Mohammad Ashraful 36* (52b 4x4)   TM Dilshan 2.4-0-11-1

Malinga to Abdur Razzak, OUT, 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

Abdur Razzak c †Sangakkara b Malinga 0 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 111/9   Mohammad Ashraful 45* (57b 6x4)   SL Malinga 5.5-0-27-3

Muralitharan to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, 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...

Syed Rasel run out 0 (5m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 112/10   Mohammad Ashraful 45* (63b 6x4)   M Muralitharan 9-0-15-1
