4.5 to Tamim Iqbal, And Tamim is gone. Vaas gets it to curve away off a length, Tamim tries to dab it to third man but edges it behind to Dilshan. Remember, Dilshan is the 'keeper. Sanga has not taken the field. 10/1
Nuwan Kulasekara612604.33275000
Thilan Thushara503617.20196011
11.5 to Mohammad Ashraful, Another pull that goes awry. Tushara picks up a wicket with a short-of-length delivery that skids on to the batsman quicker than he anticipates. Nazim had survived a few times but Ash's pull went straight up and Dilshan got under it.. 53/2

38.3 to Farhad Reza, All over. Charges down the track, has a heave and edges it to Mahela at first slip. Emphatic win for Sri Lanka. Murali and Mendis. What a potent combo. The latter half of Bangladesh couldn't handle the spicy combination. Double Jeopardy.. 174/10
Muthiah Muralidaran1013153.10432030
21.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, got him this time, doosra again, bounced and there was a bit of width, Mushfiqur tries a cute dab which goes straight to Jayawardene at slip. 116/4
25.5 to Alok Kapali, done in by the doosra. It landed on the middle and straightened, Kapali missed the sweep and was caught in front of the stumps.. 135/5

35.1 to Abdur Razzak, lands it on the middle stump line, slight turn and Razzak went for the slog sweep and dragged it on to his stumps. The wickets are tumbling at a rapid rate here. The end is nigh.. 168/8
37.6 to Mashrafe Mortaza, Murali bags the five-for. Mortaza top edged a sweep to Silva at short fine leg.Murali waits for the catch to be taken, claps in delight and turns back to take the cap from Taufel who breaks into a smile himself. Completely mesmerizing stuff from the magician.. 172/9
