0.2 to WIA Fernando, gone! That's what a bit of bounce and carry can do. This is fullish and outside off, and Avishka throws his bat at it, hoping to drive through cover. But again, there is some life in this pitch and it takes the outside edge and on to the keeper. Shoriful is overjoyed. 4/1
4.3 to PHKD Mendis, nailed that shot but straight to midwicket! This was a little back of a length, and outside off. Kamindu plays a cross-batted swipe on the front foot, but it's straight to Sarkar who takes it on one knee.. 37/2
14.4 to BKG Mendis, caught this time! He's hit a couple of sixes down the ground, but is beaten by Rishad's pace this time, and Mahmudullah gets himself nicely behind the shot at long off and takes it over his head, landing about 20cm inside the rope. That's a nicely judged catch.. 133/3

0.3 to Litton Das, And he's edged it now! Another outswinger does the trick! This was another good length wide outside off stump, shaping away. Litton moves well across his crease and looks to whip this through the onside but can only manage a feint nick through. Ideal start for the Lankans. 0/1
4.1 to Towhid Hridoy, And he's got another! Or has he? Hridoy reviews. This though was a poor shot regardless. Charges down the track and has a wild heave across the line. He misses, and there is indeed a spike as the ball passes the edge. Bangladesh are three down and a review down to boot. 30/3
3.1 to Soumya Sarkar, Asalanka judges this excellently and Sri Lanka have their second! Sarkar charges forward, but Binura drags the length back. He goes through the shot anyway trying to launch it down the ground but only gets the height, as Asalanka peddles back from mid-off and holds on well with the reverse cup. 21/2
17.5 to Mahedi Hasan, Partnership ended! It's all down to Jaker now. This was short, slow, into the pitch. Mahedi top edges the pull and Mathews takes it safely at short fine. 180/6
13.2 to Mahmudullah, Sri Lanka have Mahmadullah! Big, big wicket! This was full, in the slot but Mahmadullah just couldn't get under this enough to get the height. Ends up going flat and straight to long-on. The yelps of Sri Lankan joy can be heard in the otherwise pin drop silence of Sylhet. 115/5
19.1 to Rishad Hossain, Rishad goes for the glory and only finds mid-off! Wide yorker-cum-low-full-toss, Rishad reaches for it and gets a toe-end on the drive. Asalanka scrambles to his left and takes a good catch. 195/7
19.3 to Jaker Ali, Jaker is gone! Can you believe it?! This was full on off, Jaker looks to get under it but it's the bottom of the bat. Asalanka is at long-off, and he judges this perfectly. Goes low and forward to his left and holds on under pressure. His scream can be heard in a shell shocked Sylhet. 197/8
8.5 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, Oh dear, oh dear, Shanto throws it away! This was short of a length on off, Shanto decides to take this one on but only ends up top-edging it straight up in the air. Easy take at square leg. This was a beautifully set up wicket by Pathirana, with the short ones earlier in the over. 68/4
