0.2 bowled him, that went right through him! What a delivery from the man! It pitched around length outside off, it had swing, it drew Tamim forward and it found the gap between bat and pad to know the off stump over. Tamim looks back at his stumps in disbelief, gone for a duck 0/1
    15.1 SL have messed it up again, or have they? Easy run out chance as Mahmudullah tucked the ball to midwicket and Anamul wanted the single, running down the pitch even though his partner didn't move. Herath was ready to collect the throw behind the stumps, he doesn't collect but replays show it was a direct hit and Anamul is gone. It's time for drinks 84/4
    5.5 he also strikes in his first over! This delivery was angled across the batsman well outside off, Soumya chased without any footwork and edged it for the keeper 40/2
    6.2 he goes this time, caught at slip! Outside the off stump, Mominul chases to get a thick outside edge to first slip where Jayawardene, standing slightly straight, takes a low catch near his knees 41/3
    20.4 Herath is having a good day in the field. Mahumudllah goes. This is short of a length, Mahmudullah tries a swivel-pull, gets a top edge, which is massive and carries almost all the way to fine leg. Herath charges in, almost over-runs it and loses it in the lights, but recovers well to hold on to it 100/5
    31.5 Malinga gets another bite at the cherry, and it's the bigger wicket this time, that of Shakib. Bangladesh's best player charges down the wicket, the ball stops on him a touch, and he ends up playing a check drive, which settles in Malinga's lap at long-on 164/6
    40.2 got 'im, bowled! Slower ball on middle and leg, Mushfiqur made room but didn't know Lakmal had run his fingers over this ball and was beaten by its pace after exposing his stumps 208/7
    46.5 bangs in the short ball, makes Sabbir uncomfortable who gets a glove to it while trying to cover his chin and Sanga runs to his right to complete a good, low catch. Malinga gets his second wicket 240/9
    43.5 beats him and Sanga does the quick work to stump him! Mashrafe came down to slog, missed the ball completely because of the pace and Sanga collected to stump cleanly before Mashrafe could come back 228/8
    not out
    46.6 he's finished it off with a yorker on middle and gets him lbw! Oh hang on, Taskin asks for a review. Taskin, a left-hander, tried to tuck the ball to leg but got his bat nowhere close to the ball and was trapped low and right in front of middle stump. The decision stays 240/10
