    4.3 plumb lbw. Length ball, jagging back in off the seam to bat the bat. Fernando was nowhere near the pitch and was looking to drive through the line, misses and is struck on the back leg, just around off and middle. The umpire had no doubt in his mind 13/1
    20.2 tamest of tame dismissals and the captain has thrown it away! Premeditates the paddle, bowler slows it down, shortens his length a bit, so gets this on top of the bat and it lobs straight up to Mushfiq. With that pace or the lack of it from Taijul, Dimuth was never going to clear short fine leg. 96/2
    21.2 looks for that big biff and only gets the thinnest of edges to the keeper! Bangladesh back in this. Length ball slanting away, Kusal goes for an old-fashioned slog over cover, late on the shot. Poor. 98/3
    41.3 fuller outside off and Mendis has given it his all but lost his shape in the process which meant it got more height than distance, was a slower ball too. Sabbir had to wait for eternity at long-on but pouches it comfortably in the end 199/4
    49.1 fuller and wider outside off once again, Mathews looks to go big, misses and an appeal for caught-behind. The umpire is unmoved but there was some definite sound as the ball passed the bat. Bangladesh want to review this, and yes, there was a spike. Mathews departs for a brilliant 87 284/7
    46.1 fuller outside off, looks to go over the bowler's head but fails to middle, Sabbir once again comes in, this time from long-off, and takes a good catch tumbling forward in the end 251/5
    48.4 fuller outside off, Jayasuriya looks to go big but ends up slicing it towards covers where Tamim settles under it and takes a tumbling catch with fingers pointing upwards 280/6

    49.2 fuller and wider outside off, Akila goes inside out, towards wide long-off. Sabbir once again the man under it and takes it comfortably. But looks like he has hurt his already heavily-strapped hands in the process. Soumya Sarkar is on a hat-trick though 284/8

    7.6 stunning catch! Avishka with the swirler. Had to turn around and run back to take this top-edged flick which he looked to play over square leg. He ran around to his right from midwicket to pluck this. 29/2
    1.3 edged and taken! Tamim looks to flay this on the up but feet nowhere near the ball, it's an ugly waft away from the body and Kusal Perera takes a smart catch shoulder height. 4/1
    31.5 legbreak does the trick. Fuller around off and spinning big to beat the drive, hits the leg stump. Soumya departs for 69. End is nigh 143/8
    11.6 there's the wicket. Chases a wide delivery, looking to flay on the up and gets a thick edge to slip. In-form batsman gone 46/3
    15.4 top-edge and he's gone. Taken on the third attempt at fine leg! Fetching the pull from outside off, surprised by the pace so he gets a top-edge. Shanaka can be a skiddy customer as he's shown here. Why would you want to play that from way outside off to fine leg? I really can't fathom. Kumara never looked settled, but somehow managed to hold on as he trembled left and right while running in. 60/4
    19.4 what a catch! Perera goes one-handed to his right and pouches the outside edge. Was a length ball in the corridor, Mahmudullah pushes at it, not the best choice with a slip in place as well. Perera was first looking to go both hands firsts but realises he better go one-handed and then supports with other after completing the catch 83/5
    24.4 another excellent catch, this time by Dhananjaya de Silva at extra cover, diving to his left - both hands like a goalkeeper. Was a length ball outside off, Sabbir went for the drive but wasn't to the pitch of the ball and hence ended up hitting it in the air. Kumara strikes in his first over, and lifts de Silva in jubilation 105/6
    26.4 short of length outside off, Mehidy was surprised, didn't pick it up and was almost squared up, the ball hits the leading edge on spoons towards extra cover, Dhananjaya de Silva slips a bit there but regains his balance to complete an easy catch 117/7

    33.1 has a big swipe at this, but misses. In doing so, he dragged his back foot outside the crease and Kusal Perera whipped the bails off MS Dhoni style. The third umpire decided to go upstairs but Kusal gave it out and confidently high-fived the bowler. Replays confirm he was right 149/9
    35.6 run out at the striker's end. Turned wide of short fine but the fielder swoops in and fires a rocket throw on the bounce to Kusal Perera who does the rest. Bangladesh have been whitewashed 3-0. 172/10
