TOTAL83.3 Ov (RR: 2.87, 353 Mins)240
Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Tamim Iqbal, 6.6 ov), 2-51 (Mohammad Ashraful, 23.6 ov), 3-100 (Jahurul Islam, 39.3 ov), 4-128 (Mahmudullah, 48.3 ov), 5-152 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 54.3 ov), 6-163 (Mominul Haque, 56.1 ov), 7-222 (Sohag Gazi, 76.4 ov), 8-232 (Abul Hasan, 80.1 ov), 9-232 (Rubel Hossain, 80.6 ov), 10-240 (Nasir Hossain, 83.3 ov)
6.6 to Tamim Iqbal, immediate impact! big impact. He bowls a full delivery angling in from round the wicket and Tamim plays outside the line, that ball was crashing on to the off and middle stump. Big blow that one. Tamim came forward but not fully. The umpire raised his finger immediately. 16/1
80.1 to Abul Hasan, caught at second slip! Wicket off the first ball with the new one! It was full, floater, swinging away from the left-hander, Abul Hasan stayed in the crease and limply hung his bat, the ball took a healthy outside edge and Karunaratne makes up for the drop earlier with a smart low catch to his left. 232/8
80.6 to Rubel Hossain, caught at mid-on! The end is nigh and it's coming fast. Kula bowls a fuller length delivery, swinging in like it always does for him, and Rubel goes for an aerial drive, his bat turns in his hand and he ends up giving a gentle low catch to Herath at mid-on. 232/9
39.3 to Jahurul Islam, oh no! He has run out of patience! He tries to cut the length delivery outside off, the length was probably not there for the cut, and he ends up edging it to the keeper. He played away from the body there. The pressure of not scoring at a decent rate was showing on him for the last two overs. 100/3
48.3 to Mahmudullah, caught at slip! It's the first forceful shot that Mahmudullah has attempted and it has resulted in his wicket. The batsman saw the fuller length and he went for a big drive, without moving his feet, he edges it to the wicketkeeper, who gets hit on his knee and the ball lobs up towards gully. Angelo Mathews takes a couple of steps and dives full length to take a smart catch. 128/4
54.3 to Mushfiqur Rahim, oh no, he has misjudged the length of that delivery completely. He stays back to play that one but he should have gone forward. The ball sneaks between the bat and the pad as he tries to defend it from the crease. The ball was actually quicker too and he should have expected it as he was hurried twice by such deliveries in the previous over. It hits the off stump and it doesn't look great on the batsman's part. 152/5
56.1 to Mominul Haque, oh he has got him first ball, this was the slider that is fired across the left-hander, it draws Mominul forward and the ball goes past the outside edge, the keeper immediately goes up in appeal and the umpire is convinced too. But the batsman goes back disappointed as he thought he hadn't touched it. Another big wicket for Sri Lanka. 163/6
76.4 to Sohag Gazi, beats the batsman in flight! Gazi comes down the pitch, but this one was bowled slow and Gazi was nowhere near the pitch of the ball, it dipped on him and turned past the outside edge, resulting in an easy stumping for Chandimal. Another one for Herath. 222/7
83.3 to Nasir Hossain, he takes No. 5! Nasir went for a sweep off a quicker delivery as their was a gap at short fine leg, but he came too far across the stumps and was hit on the thigh pad infront of the stumps. 240/10

Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Tillakaratne Dilshan, 0.3 ov), 2-39 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 9.1 ov), 3-43 (Lahiru Thirimanne, 12.3 ov), 4-69 (Angelo Mathews, 22.5 ov), 5-264 (Dinesh Chandimal, 82.1 ov), 6-280 (Kithuruwan Vithanage, 86.4 ov), 7-316 (Kumar Sangakkara, 99.5 ov), 8-323 (Rangana Herath, 102.2 ov), 9-346 (Nuwan Kulasekara, 110.3 ov), 10-346 (Shaminda Eranga, 111.3 ov)
0.3 to TM Dilshan, oh he takes the big fish! It was a short and wide delivery outside off and Dilshan instinctively goes for a cut shot and gets an outside edge to the keeper, but the umpires are checking for a no-ball. No, it's all good. Bangladesh have taken the big wicket. 7/1
12.3 to HDRL Thirimanne, and it's Thirimanne who falls now, lovely teasing length which draws the batsman into a drive and then it takes the edge to the keeper, but they are checking for a no-ball. No, it was alright, Thirimanne - century in the previous match, duck here - has to go back. 43/3
22.5 to AD Mathews, caught at slip! Oh what a ball! It was tossed up outside off stump, Mathews comes forward to defend, and plays for the turn, but the ball goes on with the arm and takes the edge to disappear in the hands of the first slip fielder. Big blow to Sri Lanka. 69/4
102.2 to HMRKB Herath, he stays on the back foot and expects the ball to turn a little, but that one goes along with the arm and slips through the gap between bat and pad, strikes the off stump and clatter it is. 323/8
110.3 to KMDN Kulasekara, he pushes it this one slightly wide outside off, it goes straight on with the arm, and the batsman tries to defend it off the back foot, gets a feather to the keeper. Kula's resistance ends. 346/9
9.1 to FDM Karunaratne, Dimuth gives it away, it's sort of a mirror-image of Dilshan's dismissal! it was a shot and wide delivery, Dimuth goes for a cut, but it bounces a touch extra and takes a feather en route to the keeper. Bangladesh strike again and this match is just getting interesting. 39/2
99.5 to KC Sangakkara, a loud appeal for caught behind as this one deviates past the bat. It was a full length delivery outside off and the batsman went for a drive, but it changed it's direction and it's not sure whether it was from the pitch or off the bat...there was a similar delivery yesterday too, but this one is much much close. The third umpire is taking a look and I think this is out.. But some camera angles show one thing, other show a different thing. Did it hit a crack and change direction? It is very close to the bat though. Third umpire is checking this a zillion times. Tension, suspense, is the screen stuck or what! it is OUT. 316/7
82.1 to LD Chandimal, oh no! Where did that come from! Rubel has hit the off stump to take out Chandimal. Everyone was surprised, only a cry of celebration from the bowler. It was bowled on short of length and cut in a bit into the batsman, who was a little late to cover the line as he went to the back foot. The ball strikes the top of off to end an excellent innings by Chandimal.. 264/5
86.4 to KDK Vithanage, caught at deep point! Vithanage is not able to curb his instincts and cuts a short and wide delivery in the air, he made no effort to keep it down and hits it straight to the lone-man standing in the deep. He chooses a loose delivery to get out, a give away really. 280/6
111.3 to RMS Eranga, oye! It looked like it was going over the boundary as the batsman gave it a real whack, but Ashraful was patrolling that boundary at wide long-on and he holds on to a good catch right at the edge, manages to keep his balance and stay inside the boundary rope. 346/10

Fall of wickets: 1-91 (Tamim Iqbal, 35.2 ov), 2-96 (Mohammad Ashraful, 40.3 ov), 3-143 (Jahurul Islam, 59.3 ov), 4-143 (Mahmudullah, 59.4 ov), 5-160 (Mominul Haque, 69.6 ov), 6-171 (Nasir Hossain, 73.2 ov), 7-202 (Sohag Gazi, 81.5 ov), 8-228 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 89.1 ov), 9-239 (Rubel Hossain, 96.4 ov), 10-265 (Robiul Islam, 100.4 ov)
40.3 to Mohammad Ashraful, oh my! What a delivery! That one was flatter, quicker, it pitched on off stump and straightened and hit the top of off. Ashraful was rooted to the crease and played inside the line of that one and completely missed it. Excellent start to the session for Sri Lanka. He should have gone forward to that one, but it was the length that deceived him. 96/2
59.3 to Jahurul Islam, game over! Flight, turn and some brain freeze from Jahurul! He was playing so well and so patiently, but he decides to come out of the crease - much like Mahmudullah in the first Test - he is not to the pitch of the ball and it turns past his bat, Chandimal does the rest. He is really annoyed with himself as he walks off, just two short of his half-century. 143/3
59.4 to Mahmudullah, oh my god, this is two in two! This is a similar delivery that did Ashraful..if not better.. It was flatter, grips the surface and turns past the outside edge of Mahmudullah's bat to knock the off stump back..Stunning delivery. 143/4
69.6 to Mominul Haque, some turn and he strikes, caught at short-leg! This one is loopy, but it's not up there to drive, the batsman goes back to defend it, but it turns into him, bounces a touch extra, hits the inside edge on to the thigh pad and lobs up for an easy catch for the short-leg fielder. Big blow in the first over, is it going to be another Herath show then?. 160/5
73.2 to Nasir Hossain, No. 5 for Herath, No. 10 in the Match! An outrageous shot from Nasir. He tosses it up on the stumps, the ball drifts towards the leg stump and it's very full, Nasir, for some reason, goes for an expansive drive through the leg side, plays across the line completely and yorks himself...Then he hears the clatter of stumps behind him...What's up with these batsmen!!!. 171/6
81.5 to Sohag Gazi, caught at long-on! He is gone! He wanted to repeat the previous shot as he came out, but this time he goes aerial and finds the man at widish long-on. He probably wanted to go towards extra cover..Wicket no. 6 for Herath... 202/7
89.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, appeal for catch and lbw! In the end, the umpire gives him out for being caught at slip.. It was a flighted delivery on the stumps, the batsman comes forward, gets a faint nick on to the pads and Angelo takes the catch low to his left at first slip. The bowler went for an appeal immediately for lbw, but Angelo probably had heard the nick and he appealed for the catch..Mush has to depart... 228/8
96.4 to Rubel Hossain, hits off stump! Tossed up delivery from round the wicket and the batsman comes forward to defend that, but plays inside the line as the ball goes straight on and knocks back the off stump. Just at the stroke of lunch... 239/9
35.2 to Tamim Iqbal, oh the changed has made an immediate impact! It looked like a harmless length delivery just outside off stump and Tamim tried to chop it to the off side, it was too close to cut and the ball takes an inside edge and hits the stumps. That was a loose shot to play after a fine innings.. 91/1
100.4 to Robiul Islam, inswinging yorker signals the catering company to ready the lunch, it was full, it was pacy, it slides under the bat and hits the base of off stump.. 265/10

6.5 to FDM Karunaratne, another brain freeze! It was angling in from round the wicket and Karunaratne, very smartly, decides not to offer a shot, that was going to hit something if not all the three stumps, easy decision for the umpire. Karunaratne's bad day gets worse. Surely no cake for him now.. 31/1
27.6 to TM Dilshan, he makes it up with a length delivery that cuts back just a bit, Dilshan goes for an ambitious on-the-up drive through cover, without moving his feet. But this one jags back into him and splays the stumps. Robiul gets some reward for his aggression. 125/2
32.4 to KC Sangakkara, he attempts the same thing again, but this time the ball sneaks under the bat and hits the off stump, finally he falls for something less than a 100 in this series. 135/3
