slower bouncer outside off, Kapugedera misses the pull, and all of Bangladesh celebrates
11.15pm And that is that. Bangladesh join India with two wins, and a good, solid chance of getting into the final. An outstanding performance from them today. Tomorrow's game sees Pakistan taking on UAE. Do join us for that, and keep sending in your feedback. Until then, goodbye!
Mashrafe Mortaza: "T20 we have always struggled a bit. This was a good win for us, going forward. The wicket was pretty good to bat on, 147 you can still fight it out. After a couple of catches missed, we stood up and did our best. Wicket was on the slow side today. Shakib played a big role along with Mahmudullah, but Sabbir was brilliant."
Sabbir Rahman is the man of the match: "It was a good opportunity to come in early. I just rotated the strike and played to my strengths."
Angelo Mathews: "We could have just milked it around after we got the initial start. We just lost our way, and once we hit that 12-runs-an-over mark, we just kept losing wickets. Credit to Bangladesh for bowling and fielding well. We could have taken better options, but we kept losing wickets through the middle section. We have to be patient, it's a learning curve for all of us. It will be hard work, we'll need to beat India and Pakistan to qualify for the final, and we'll try our best."
Dinesh: "Bangladesh 2016 is like Sri Lanka 1996. Full of gutsy players whom the other teams cannot underestimate anymore.."
11.03pm This is the first time Bangladesh have beaten Sri Lanka in T20Is. This was the fifth meeting between the sides.
Mahmudullah says he needs to "talk with Mash", and get to bowl more regularly. He also credits the Sabbir-Shakib partnership for digging partnership out of a difficult situation. "Mustafiz really came good, because it was sticking up a bit, and with the new ball Al-Amin and Taskin were outstanding."
10.57pm What a performance this was from Bangladesh. They lost a heap of wickets at the top of the order, but Sabbir Rahman kept counterattacking, and made an outstanding 80 full of crisp cricketing shots. Still, 147 was only a par score, as Shakib Al Hasan admitted, but the bowlers were brilliant in defending it. Mustafizur wasn't just landing everything exactly where he wanted to, he also seemed to know exactly what the batsman's intentions were, every time. Al-Amin, Taskin and Mashrafe backed him up perfectly, and the spinners were outstanding on a slow deck, slowing it up, making the batsmen create all the power themselves. A disappointing batting display from Sri Lanka, it has to be said.
full on off stump, and that's a clean strike from Kapugedera. All too late, but a good shot nonetheless, clears his front leg and swings through the line to hit straight back over the bowler, to the right of long-off
dug in short outside off, pulled to deep midwicket
love - cricket : "There was a time Bangladesh used to depend heavily on spinners and there were not enough quality pacers. Things have changed!"
Mark: "It comes to something in T20 when you think that you can defend 100, 120 is a good target and 140 is just about impossible to chase. This is T20, but not as we know it, Jim."
Samia: "Best match of the tournament so far, don't you agree?"
full on off stump. Kulasekara plays a whippy lofted hit down the ground, picks out long-on
yorker on off stump, squeezed back past the bowler, down to long-on
low full-toss close to off stump, Shanaka slogs, and the ball hits high on the outside half of the bat, loops up in the air, and straight into short cover's hands
Mustafizur has been absolutely magnificent. Only 19 off his four overs. It leaves Sri Lanka 32 to get from the final over. It's still possible, mathematically... Here's Al-Amin.
full-toss on middle stump, at thigh height. Slogs across the line, misses, and it hits his thigh pad and rolls into the covers
ha. Shanaka steps across his stumps this time, shaping for the scoop over short fine leg. Mustafizur sees it, follows him with the yorker, and slides it between his legs
wide yorker. Looks to squeeze it through the covers, ends up jabbing it back to the bowler off the bottom of the bat
fullish outside off, and he brings his bottom hand into play to whip that to the right of deep midwicket
low full-toss on off stump, swiped to long-on
oh, Mustafiz, superb. Fired full outside off, and Shanaka, looking to make himself room, falls over as he tries to jam his bat down on it. It's past him too quickly
yorker on middle stump, hits the bottom of the bat on the full as Kapugedera jams down to dig it out, back towards the bowler
length ball outside off. Kapugedera plants his front leg across and swats it away through square leg
this one skids through a bit quicker, and he pulls it along the ground, towards long-on
shot, Shanaka! Another shortish ball, this one just sat up, and he pulled it off the front foot, high over the wide long-on boundary
back of a length outside off, not short enough to pull. Misses it, and the keeper goes up for a caught behind appeal. No bat on that at all, and they missed an opportunity to sneak a bye, because Nurul threw that ball high in the air
Here, finally, is Kapugedera, but the batsmen crossed over
length ball wide of off, it leaves the batsman a touch off the pitch. Mathews goes for the big hit over the covers, ends up slicing it high over point. Shakib moves towards the boundary, with the ball dropping down from behind him. Juggles it once, but catches it on the second attempt
Excellent over from Fizzy Mustafiz. Al-Amin comes on now.
makes a bit of room to a full ball on off stump, jabs it down to long-off
this one's full and quick, angling away wide of off stump. Saw Mathews step down the pitch and fires it wide of him. Reaches out to it, can't make contact
The last four came in the seventh over. The last six in the eleventh.
