Suranga Lakmal36148112.2518011003
167.5 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, ok gone this time. Caught behind. What a strange over. This is slightly fuller, tighter into the stumps, and Mehidy plays a drive. It seams away just a touch off the deck, and takes his outside edge. The umpire gives it out straightaway, and the batter doesn't review this time.. 515/6
Vishwa Fernando3599642.7416813011
1.6 to Saif Hassan, big lbw shout. And a deliberation whether to go for the review as it has been turned down by the on-field umpire. Karunaratne takes a while, but ultimately decides to review. This is a length ball from Vishwa, straightening off the deck and hitting Saif's front pad just below the knee roll. That's clearly hitting the stumps, but is it pitching in line with leg stump? The ball tracker says it is! Three reds for Saif, and Vishwa has a breakthrough in his first over.. 8/1
38.3 to Tamim Iqbal, gone, that's a cute shot that probably wasn't necessary. Back of a length in the corridor, and Tamim presses forward and then leans back for a late dab. I guess he wasn't looking to play it as fine as he did, but there's a bit of extra bounce, possibly, and he ends up steering it into the hands of the lone slip fielder at chest height. That extra bounce ensured it hit the outside half of the bat. 152/2
164.1 to Liton Das, Vishwa has been the most threatening bowler this morning, and he gets some reward. But it's a weird shot from Liton. This is pitched on a length, but well wide of the off stump - the ball angled way across the batsman. Liton pushes at it without a lot of footwork, and the outside edge goes straight to gully at belly height. Oshada Fernando, the fielder there, catches it after a brief juggle. Fernandos combining for that wicket. (One on commentary too.). 511/5
170.4 to Taijul Islam, length ball in the corridor, and Vishwa gets his fourth wicket. Taijul wasn't looking very convincing out there, and he goes for a drive away from his body and only manages a thin nick through to Dickwella. The ball may have straightened just a hint after pitching. 524/7
Lahiru Kumara2848813.141216040
124.1 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, and he gets the breakthrough straight away! Return catch. That was 131kph - not quite a slower ball, but perhaps slower than Shanto was expecting. He tries to punch this length ball back down the ground, but is quick on the shot, and pops a catch up straight to Kumara, who takes it pretty easily at round belly height. End of an outstanding innings from Shanto. Misses out on the double, but he's put his team in a commanding position.. 394/3
Angelo Mathews711402.00341000
Dhananjaya de Silva30113014.3311314102
139.5 to Mominul Haque, gone, Dhananjaya has got the centurion. Good ball, this. Enticingly flighted outside off, and he gets Mominul to attempt a drive away from his body with an angled bat. A bit of dip and turn, and all he manages is an edge to first slip at waist height. 424/4

Abu Jayed1927604.00768011
Taskin Ahmed30611233.7312918010
53.3 to BOP Fernando, full, angling down leg, and Taskin has struck! Oshada strangles a catch down the leg side! Looks to glance it fine, ends up playing it too fine, and Liton grabs it with a dive to his left. Excellent footwork first up, a couple of steps to his left, and then the dive to snaffle it with both gloves. Looks like the ball hit bat and then the edge of Oshada's pad. 157/2
153.4 to DM de Silva, gone! DDS has chopped on, and a 345-run partnership has come to a close. This was back of a length outside off, and DDS was very late on the shot - I think a largely defensive prod into the offside. It took the inside part of his bat, hit the ground and then bounced into the stumps. That's the first wicket in 90 overs.. 535/4
155.4 to FDM Karunaratne, gone! Taskin's got both overnight batsmen early. This was a short ball, well wide of off stump, at 141kph. Gets up to almost shoulder height for Dimuth, who tries to fetch it from the off side and pull it over midwicket. He mis-hits it though, and ends up only spooning a catch to the midwicket fielder. End of a fantastic innings from Sri Lanka's captain. He's been batting for 698 minutes!. 544/5
Ebadot Hossain2119914.717811052
159.4 to P Nissanka, gone! Another one. Wickets are tumbling from that end, and it's Nissanka this time, who tries to chop down on a wide-ish, back of a length ball outside off stump from Ebadot, and sends a healthy edge through to the wicketkeeper. Maybe beaten for pace a little bit. That came through at 141kph.. 553/6
Mehidy Hasan Miraz58616112.7724213110
38.6 to HDRL Thirimanne, got him, that is beautifully bowled! Thirimanne has reviewed, though... Lovely, lovely flight, and he gets it to drift into the left-hander and pitch on an off-stumpish line. Thirimanne's front leg ends up going further across than it should, because he hasn't accounted for the drift, and the ball, which continues with the angle, beats the inside edge of his defensive prod, and hits front pad. Strikes him in line with middle stump or thereabouts, and it's hitting leg stump according to ball-tracking. Superb delivery to get Bangladesh their breakthrough right on the stroke of tea. 114/1
Taijul Islam45916323.6218420000
62.3 to AD Mathews, bowled him, Taijul has made this change of angle work! Slightly casual from Mathews there, and probably a misjudgment of length too. Goes on the back foot, looking for a late cut, and leaves a gap between bat and pad for the ball to zip through and bowl him. Regular stock ball turning away from the right-hander, but it pitched fuller than Mathews judged it to have pitched, so he misjudged the extent of turn as well, and it went past his inside edge and hit off stump. 190/3
177.3 to PWH de Silva, bowled him. Quickish, back of a length, and maybe it spins a little less than Hasaranga expects as he opens up to whip it through square leg. Inside-edge, onto the back pad, and into leg stump. 647/8

Suranga Lakmal822122.62342001
4.1 to Saif Hassan, Gone! Saif collects his second modest score of the game. This is a length ball just outside off. There's just the merest hint of shape to this ball, that straightens down the line. Saif prods at it and sends a thin edge to the wicketkeeper. Sri Lanka have a breakthrough.. 21/1
6.3 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, chopped on! Lakmal is giving Sri Lanka a tiiiny bit of hope here, however futile this seems. This is a length ball angled across the batsman, who stays in his crease and seems to want to play a defensive shot. His bat is angled though, and he seems to be a tad late on it, so all he does is chop it back on to his stumps. Out without scoring after his big hundred in the first dig.. 27/2
