Abul Hasan27411214.1411313134
89.4 to AD Mathews, oh my! What have you done Angelo! It was a harmless delivery on off stump and the batsman tried to manufacture a shot towards leg side, gets a leading edge that lobs up for the bowler to gobble up. Immediate reward for Hasan for some disciplined bowling this morning. The captain ran out of patience in just two overs!! First wicket for Hasan too. He has a bowling average now - 180.00. 367/4
Sohag Gazi50616433.2820517100
8.4 to FDM Karunaratne, Gazi strikes this time! It was a quicker delivery on the middle and the batsman, who was on the back foot, was late in bringing his bat down, it pitched outside off and hit him right in front of the middle. Dimuth Karunaratne's innings has been cut short by a good delivery. 46/0
22.6 to TM Dilshan, caught at mid-off And here comes a wicket! Dilshan charged out again as he has been doing and Gazi makes a subtle change in the direction, tosses it up wide. The batsman gets to the ball, but gets a toe-end to that and it flies low to mid-off, who has come in to the normal position now. The fielder takes a good low catch to send the danger man back. 114/1
37.6 to FDM Karunaratne, Gazi strikes this time! It was a quicker delivery on the middle and the batsman, who was on the back foot, was late in bringing his bat down, it pitched outside off and hit him right in front of the middle. Dimuth Karunaratne's innings has been cut short by a good delivery. 181/2
72.6 to KC Sangakkara, caught at cover! Oh from nowhere, Sanga has given it away! the wicket goes to Gazi - it could only have gone to him. He tossed it up full and wide outside off, the batsman took the invitation and went for the booming drive through cover, but wasn't able to keep it down. The fielder at short cover palm it over his head and then takes it on the second go. Gazi's heart must have been in his mouth, but the wicket as come.. 305/3

Nuwan Kulasekara2739423.4811813001
52.3 to Mominul Haque, caught at first slip! oh no, Mominul's attractive stint in the middle is over. He pushes at one that was angled across the left-hander, the ball just moved enough to catch the outside edge and it gives a simple catch to El Capitano at first slip. He gobbles it up. Good innings by the debutant. 170/3
167.4 to Mushfiqur Rahim, fuller length delivery on the middle and it comes in a touch, the batsman was a little late to get his front foot out of the way and gets hit on the pads right in front.. A loss in concentration? Doesn't matter, Mush has played a brilliant innings and he gets a pat on his back from all SL players too..Well played Mush. 550/6
Shaminda Eranga34412223.5814115006
7.5 to Jahurul Islam, and that is wicket no. 1! It was a quick bouncer and didn't really get up too high as the batsman tried to arch back to get out of the way. The ball followed him, caught his gloves and went straight to the keeper. Eranga has the first strike. He has been working up some serious pace here. 23/1
195.6 to Shahadat Hossain, oh well done Eranga! bowls a brute of a yorker on off stump which comes in a bit with reverse swing. That was a good delivery. 638/10
Rangana Herath621116122.5927812200
53.6 to Mahmudullah, Oh where is your mind! He has just come in and he decided to do an Ashraful! Comes out of the track without watching the ball properly, is nowhere near the pitch of the ball. His bat goes for a mighty swing, the ball spins past it and the keeper does the job. Atrocious shot! What was he thinking really!. 177/4
140.2 to Mohammad Ashraful, caught at first slip! Oh no! There is not going to be that celebration today. After staying patient for a while, the batsman charges out for a wild shot over extra cover (he didn't look in control when he left the crease, a bit like Mahmudullah yesterday), the ball just turned a bit, took the outside edge and the first slip fielder took it head-high..That's it .. It's the end of a dream. Over to El Capitano now. 444/5
Ajantha Mendis36315224.2213018000
23.6 to Anamul Haque, tossed up delivery, tossed up a lot and Anamul, who was not coming on to the front foot, should have gone forward. Instead, he just tries to drive it from the crease, his stance opens up a bit and he leaves a big gap between the bat and the pad, the ball is conventional offspinner and it takes the middle and leg stump. No century on debut, yet, for Anamul. 65/2
176.3 to Sohag Gazi, caught at forward short-leg! bowls the googly and gets the wicket. The ball turned in from around middle and leg stump line, takes an inside edge on to the thigh-pad and lobs up for an easy catch for the close-in fielder. Happy birthday Mendis. Not sure if there was a bat on it though, possibly the glove... 581/7
Angelo Mathews921802.00432000
Tillakaratne Dilshan2657522.881106100
189.4 to Nasir Hossain, caught at midwicket! And Nasir loses concentration as he hits the short delivery straight to the hands of midwicket. He could have hit it anywhere really but just didn't get the elevation.. 618/8
191.2 to Elias Sunny, gets the outside edge with a flat delivery as the ball turns past the forward defence. The batsman didn't really move forward to cover the line of the ball and gets a tickle on the way to Chandimal's gloves. 618/9

Shahadat Hossain913313.66394002
4.6 to FDM Karunaratne, caught at fine-leg! A roar from Shahadat as he surprises the batsman with a quick short one. Dimuth was in all sorts of tangle, he wasn't expecting such a delivery, the ball takes a top-edge as he goes for a hook-shot. Bangladeshi hearts would have been in their mouths as the fielder was Abul Hasan, but he takes it this time.. First strike. 17/1

60.2 to KC Sangakkara, caught at short midwicket! Wake up people, a wicket has gone down! It was a short delivery on off stump, he could have hit it anywhere but he decides to go for a pull and doesn't get the elevation, hits it straight to the fielder at short midwicket, who takes a good sharp catch. 230/2
66.4 to TM Dilshan, caught at deep backward square leg! And another one goes down, this time Dilshan. Mahmudullah bowls a half-tracker down the leg side, the batsman wanted to pull it fine, but he plays it in the air and it goes towards deep backward square leg. The fielder charges in and takes a good catch diving forward. Abul Hasan there, kind of makes up for the missed chance on the first day with that catch.. 249/3
80.5 to KDK Vithanage, no, the dream is over. No century for the debutant..The batsman goes on the back foot to a flatter one around off stump, and tries to play a forceful punch to the offside, but inside edges it to his off stump. Mahmudullah is all smiles as he has got his third, none of which has come off a wicket-taking delivery.. 320/4

1.2 to Anamul Haque, he is chopped it on! It was a good length delivery that darted in and the batsman tried to defend from the crease, he hits the ball off the face of the bat, but the pace on the ball takes it back to hit the off stump. Jittery start by Bangladesh. 2/1
