Dilshan Madushanka402616.50113000
16.4 to Afif Hossain, Picks out the fielder to precision! Slower length ball on middle stump, Afif was looking to go much straighter but loses shape and ends up dragging it to cow corner where Hasaranga pouches a simple catch.. 144/5
Maheesh Theekshana402315.75101100
10.3 to Shakib Al Hasan, Cleans him with a ripper! Flights this one ever so slightly, Shakib as he has done all innings, gives himself room looking to loft over covers. Theekshana though keeps it wicket to wicket as the ball turns just that bit and beats Shakib all ends up. The middle stump takes a beating. Was the conventional off-break from Theekshana and had Shakib deceived. The batter is livid with himself as he walks off.. 87/4
Asitha Fernando4051112.7564300
2.5 to Sabbir Rahman, Edged and taken! The peppering of short stuff gets the desired result! Sabbir goes for another pull, and he's once more late on the stroke. But this time he can only get a thick edge through to the keeper.. 19/1
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva4041210.2584200
6.5 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, And Hasaranga, as he so often does, strikes in his first over! This was a tossed up googly on a length, and Miraz goes across the line with the sweep. He gets nowhere near it though, and he hears that dreaded death rattle as the middle and leg is disturbed.. 58/2
17.1 to Mahmudullah, Hasaranga returns and gets the big fish! Flighted gently on off, was the leg-spinner. Mahmudullah was looking for the slog sweep, but looks like was deceived by the slowness and was into his shot a bit early. Ends up getting a top edge with Chamika Karunaratne at deep midwicket taking a simple catch.. 147/6
Chamika Karunaratne403228.0063000
7.6 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Edged and gone! Back of a length and jagging away having pitched on middle, it has Mushfiqur defending on the back foot as the ball takes a healthy nick through to Mendis behind the stumps.. 63/3
18.1 to Mahedi Hasan, Slower length ball on middle and leg, he looks to work it to the on-side, misses and is caught plumb in front of the wicket. He reviews, but I am guessing more in hope. Yep, the ball-tracker confirms that would have smashed into leg stump.. 159/7

Mustafizur Rahman403218.0083100
14.3 to BKG Mendis, Mendis is finally dismissed! Doesn't get a sixth life. Great captaincy by Shakib to keep the third man back and the trump card strikes. Banged in short outside off, was the slower off-cutter. Mendis ramps it but does not get all of it and Taskin running in from third man, takes it low, diving forward.. 131/5
Taskin Ahmed402426.0093000
8.5 to PBB Rajapaksa, Short and he ramps this straight down third man's throat! Perfect field placement as third man was extremely fine, waiting for that exact stroke.. 77/4
15.3 to PWH de Silva, Another one bites the dust and Sri Lanka are falling quickly. Back of a length on off, Hasaranga gives himself room and looks to flay it away over covers, but the bat turns in his hands and he can only hit it as far as deep cover. Comfortable catch.. 139/6
Shakib Al Hasan403107.7571200
Ebadot Hossain4051312.7583262
5.3 to P Nissanka, Soft dismissal! This was short and Nissanka goes for the pull, but it's on him too quickly. Only manages a gentle top edge to midwicket.. 45/1
5.6 to KIC Asalanka, And Ebadot gets another! This was short of a length outside off, and Asalanka comes down the track and looks to swat this over mid-off, but he can only loop a dolly to the man stationed there.. 48/2
7.4 to MD Gunathilaka, Cracking catch! This was short and Gunathilaka gets a top edge on the pull, that goes hiiigh...Taskin runs in about 20 metres from fine leg and dives forward to hold on to an impressive take. He is absolutely beside himself, as he should be!. 67/3
Mahedi Hasan2.2030112.8524002
17.5 to MD Shanaka, Down the ground and Mosaddek takes the catch! Is this the game? Was in the slot on middle, Shanaka gets a good piece of it but not enough and long on takes a simple catch. he was looking to hit it hard but failed to clear the ropes.. 158/7
