Kulasekara to Taskin Ahmed, OUT, this is a length ball on middle which Taskin looks to mow over wide long-on but ends up getting it on the top half of his bat, which means there's more elevation than distance. The man coming in from the boundary had enough time to stop, settle underneath, then again run forward to complete the catch on the move. Sri Lanka's first win in eight ODIs. Series ends 1-1

Taskin Ahmed c Gunaratne b Kulasekara 14 (27b 1x4 0x6) SR: 51.85

Kulasekara to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, OUT, slower delivery outside off, Mehedi takes it on the full but toe-ends it to the man at the edge of the ring at cover. Gutsy knock

Prasanna to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, lured by the flight, looked to launch him over the ground but ended up hitting it flat to the bowler who took it right in front of his face on the followthrough. Had he missed, the ball would have hit him on the face. Wonder if he has dental insurance. Brings out the 'dab' celebration too. The resistance has ended.

Mashrafe Mortaza c & b Prasanna 16 (23b 2x4 0x6) SR: 69.56

Lakmal to Mahmudullah, OUT, and gone. Mahmudullah perishes to a loose stroke. Bouncer down leg, Mahmudullah is through his pull too early and the ball kisses the glove on its way to the keeper. A golden chance for Mahmudullah to press his claim for a higher spot, but he's given it away. Bangladesh sink further

MDK Perera to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, and Shakib goes! With that, it seems Bangladesh's hopes are gone too. His back was clearly troubling him, but he took the easy way out. Didn't try and soldier through a tough period. Not very good from the experienced man. Full delivery on off, Shakib stays in his crease and nails a drive straight to Gunathilaka who takes the catch on a second attempt.

Shakib Al Hasan c Gunathilaka b MDK Perera 54 (62b 7x4 0x6) SR: 87.09

Prasanna to Mosaddek Hossain, OUT, and goes straight through Mosaddek. That's a really poor stroke. A flat delivery on middle, Mosaddek mistakes a short length for a bad delivery. And exposes his stumps in a bid to cut. The ball skids on with a bit of turn and beats his extravagant cut to hit the stumps. That's an awful stroke. No room to cut. Put pressure on himself by playing too many dot balls.

Mosaddek Hossain b Prasanna 9 (20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 45.00

MDK Perera to Soumya Sarkar, OUT, superb delivery from Dilruwan. Completely does Soumya in. Drift, and dip. Flat delivery outside off, the ball pitches and rips past the outside edge. Soumya's feet are nowhere, his momentum takes him forward and it's an easy stumping for Chandimal. Fantastic bowling. Almost a no-ball, but he has a smidgen behind.

Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, hit on the back pad by a delivery that nips back in to beat the inside edge. The only bone of contention was the height. At the point of impact, the ball didn't have much distance to travel. He was given out on the field, so the decision could have been overturned only if the ball would have completely missed the stumps. On this occasion, ball tracking indicates the ball would have clipped top of middle and so the umpire's call will stay. Sri Lanka are all over Bangladesh like a bad rash. The pacers are turning it on here at the SSC.

Mushfiqur Rahim lbw b Lakmal 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kulasekara to Sabbir Rahman, OUT, that really is a horror shot from Sabbir and he's paid the price. This had the width alright, he threw his hands at it with the feet going nowhere. All he managed was a thick edge that was pouched safely by Dinesh Chandimal, who moved swiftly to his right. Sri Lankans don't hold back in celebrating the wicket. The man with whom they've had a few tiffs in the series is gone.

Sabbir Rahman c †Chandimal b Kulasekara 0 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kulasekara to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, leading edge back to Kulasekara. Dolly of a catch, really. Timed his jumped well and took the catch but lost the grip when he was trying to throw the ball up in delight. Grabbed it, swung it around and lost it while in the motion of throwing it up. Fair call in the end, Tamim shakes his head but has to walk off.

Tamim Iqbal c & b Kulasekara 4 (6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66
