Well I hope you all enjoyed the cricket today despite the breaks in between. I certainly did. Mohammad Isam's report will be ready soon and there be more analysis later. This is dreary-eyed Devashish Fuloria signing off. Good night
The biggest Google+ Hangout in cricket's history is happening on Monday, 2:30 PM IST (9:00 AM GMT). Get ready to spend A Day with Dravid.
Angelo Mathews: "We were a bit complacent on the field and a bit wayward with the ball, but we covered it up with our batting. Kushal is absolute pleasure to watch, he has no fear and is a player to watch in the future. We have a young team but we need to persist with the current team. Bangladesh batted brilliantly"
Mushfiqur Rahim: "We played half of the game really well, but we didn't bowl well in the right channel. We scored very well on a pitch that was not easy earlier, but didn't bowl well. Unfortunately, Tamim is out, but we will be ready for the next game."
Dilshan is the Man of the Match: "The ball was coming on really well on to the bat. The first eight overs, we had a great start and we capitalised on that. Young Kushal played a good hand. I have sorted some technical issues in the past few months and it is helping me now."
Nasir Hossain gets an award for hitting three sixes, Tamim Iqbal gets a smartphone for being the smart player of the match, Dilshan gets one award for fastest USB-drive fifty...
Sri Lanka take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series with a very easy win set up by an exhilarating opening stand between Dilshan and Kushal Perera. Dilshan went on to complete his century and was well supported by Sanga, who scored yet another fifty. Bangladesh never appeared to have any control over the batsmen. They also have to now contend with the bad news of losing Tamim Iqbal, who is out of the series. Tamim was the main batsman today and his injury is a serious loss to Bangladesh's chances in the series.
Saimon: "What's the point of selecting genuine bowlers when your allrounders are way better than them? I say, from now on, drop the pacers and play 3 pace bowling allrouders in each game, alongside the two spinners. The idea of 9 effective batsmen doesn't sound bad either."
Karnain: "One Sangakkara or Dilshan should be rested for the next 2 matches. Having said that Sanga needs just 22 to reach 11000 runs in ODIs."
Zara: "Tamim - 112, Dilshan - 113 THAT'S the reason we won :D"
And he doesn't release the ball again, takes the towel from the umpire and wipes it..
Gazi comes round the wicket, a slip in place. He stops twice in his run-up, because the ball is too wet.
Dinesh Chandimal joins Dilshan
jackthelad: "Bit pessimistic, Nazz - look at your bowlers, only four games between them; there's nothing wrong that a little experience won't fix."
Nazz: "Since Tamim is out, Just take nasir and mushfiqur out of the team, this team will get tough time against Canada"
The impressive Ziaur Rahman comes back into the attack
Kartik: "And Bangladesh's chance of performing well in this ODI series have just slipped down 20%"
