    2.5 loose shot by Fernando, was a length ball outside off and Fernando cannot resist chasing it, gets a thick outside edge and Soumya Sarkar takes a well-judged catch at first slip, chest-height to his right 10/1
    14.6 finally the dot-ball pressure gets to Karunaratne who goes for the sweep shot to fuller one around off but gets a top edge and a comfortable catch for Mustafizur Rahman at short fine leg 107/2
    32.4 a soft dismissal to end a scintillating knock. Was fuller on middle and leg, Perera looks to swipe it past short fine leg but doesn't get the timing right and an easy catch for Mustafizur there 207/3
    33.6 short of length outside off, goes for the cut but looks like he missed it. A mild appeal for caught-behind but the umpire is unmoved. But wait, Kusal Mendis is walking! Bangladesh have pulled it back a bit here with two quick wickets 212/4
    48.3 fuller around off, Mathews tries to get under it and clear long-off but doesn't get the required power and Sabbir takes a good sliding catch running in 302/7
    44.3 length ball around off, goes for the pull but not enough power behind it, Soumya takes a comfortable catch, moving to his left, at deep midwicket 272/5
    45.2 no fireworks from Perera here. It's fuller around off, Perera looks to go aerial but ends up slicing it towards deep extra cover, Soumya comes in and takes it near knee-height 276/6
    49.2 fuller on the stumps and de Silva goes aerial but no timing on it and Sabbir takes an easy catch at long-on 309/8

    0.5 welcome to the last chapter! Wow! Malinga has shown up with a classic. Dipping, nasty yorker comes in very very late from a middle stump line. Tamim's reflexive stride across has him locked, and then it's too late to take it out. It's under his bat and it smashes leg stump. Bangladesh's stand-in captain can barely stand up as this craftsman sneaks it past him 1/1
    8.3 see ya! Persistence will do it! He is not hiding his cards tonight. Three yorkers in a row - but what are you going to do about it? Sarkar tries the only plausible method - the good old full face of the bat to try and defend it. But this goes through and hits leg stump anyway, possibly off the inside edge on the way 30/3
    7.3 Mithun reviews the lbw decision. It was a length ball outside off, he was walking across into the off side to try and flick behind square. Struck on the front pad. Outside the line or not? Not! No bat on it either. This is hitting middle and off. Bangladesh lose the wicket and the review 30/2
    38.1 taken down leg side! Mendis moving quickly. Rahim has been limping, his feet weren't as quick as he stepped into the off side to try and ramp this fine. Got bat on it but hardly the connection he wanted. That should be that, surely? 199/8
    11.5 guides it straight to third man! 142kph from Kumara and Mahmudullah can't do more than ramp this. No swinging room at his chest. Third man moves to his left and hangs on to a simple one. Bangladesh crumbling 39/4
    28.2 skips down the track to this length ball outside leg stump, doesn't reach to the pitch of the ball but goes through with the shot anyway, doesn't get the required power and an easy catch for Fernando at deep midwicket 150/5
    33.2 brainfreezes abound! Slow-mo cricket! No-mo cricket if you're Mosaddek. Short ball down leg side, looks to pull but it's past him. Mendis leaps to his left to try and get this. He can only parry it upwards for himself. It appears the batsman thinks the ball is now past the keeper because Rahim is running down at the other end. So he's taking a walk around short-of-a-length whereabouts. Mendis is still juggling the ball. And has almost resigned, because he's REALLY struggling to hold on. Then he sees where the batsman is. Now he has the ball, and his right glove is off. Takes aim for an eternity as Mosaddek turns around and pauses life. Crunch. Ball hits base of stump. 182/6
    34.6 got him! De Silva turning the game vigorously in Sri Lanka's way. Although this is an arm ball. Skidding across the corridor from around the wicket. Mehidy looks for the cute stab past short third. Thin edge and Mendis is probably going to write to us tomorrow to label him a full-time wicketkeeper. What a night he's having 187/7
    38.3 top of off! Pradeep is swarmed by his team-mates who are no doubt telling him to leave on for Malinga. Regulation length ball aimed for top of off. Shafiul defends inside the line and is beaten on the outside edge 200/9

    41.4 goes in style! Lasith Malinga seals the win in another chase. Seals it with a dipping slower ball. Mustafizur backs away and manages to connect again, but he's hit it high and to the right of Thisara at mid-off who does it for everyone in the stadium after some serious balancing 223/10
