Chamika Karunaratne301214.0080000
7.4 to Shakib Al Hasan, backs away from leg trying to flick over the leg side but Karunaratne bowls the perfect delivery clipping the top of leg stump. He sprints away into the covers making 100% sure to not be anywhere near Shakib after the unsavory incident following the first wicket.. 56/2
Binura Fernando302719.0063100
16.1 to Mohammad Naim, bangs it in the middle of the pitch. Naim goes for the pull but can only top-edge it straight up. Binura moves under it and completes the catch near short midwicket region. 129/3
Dushmantha Chameera4041010.2545002
Lahiru Kumara402917.25104001
5.5 to Liton Das, Liton tries to get a bit too creative and pays the price. And now some spicy exchange after the catch at mid-off! Kumara and Liton have to be separated as Liton was walking off. Naim comes from behind and pushes Kumara to get away from Liton. The umpires have to hustle forward as the players continue making physical contact, pushing, shoving and trash-talking. The NBA/NFL comes to the T20 World Cup! As for the wicket itself, Liton backed away from leg trying to drive a full ball over the ring but picked out mid-off at head height. That's a footnote in the sequence now that. We may have a lengthy match referee report after play.. 40/1

Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Kusal Perera, 0.4 ov), 2-71 (Pathum Nissanka, 8.1 ov), 3-71 (Avishka Fernando, 8.4 ov), 4-79 (Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva, 9.4 ov), 5-165 (Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 18.2 ov)
Nasum Ahmed2.5029210.2341200
0.4 to MDKJ Perera, darts this in flatter and quicker at 100 kph on fourth stump and skids on to beat the slog sweep! Clever change of pace by Nasun and he sets off sprinting to third man in an animated celebration for his first wicket of the T20 World Cup in his first match of the tournament.. 2/1
18.2 to PBB Rajapaksa, bowled 'im! Backs away early and exposes his stumps, allowing the bowler slow it down. Goes for the cut but fails to connect and the ball clatters into the stumps. 165/5
Mahedi Hasan403007.5082120
Mohammad Saifuddin3038112.6654220
9.4 to PWH de Silva, slower ball lands full on the stumps, skies a drive trying to clear midwicket but he's through the shot early on a 112 kph delivery and skies this high to the man coming in off the rope. Too easy for Naim holding on to the chance 15 yards in from the rope.. 79/4
Shakib Al Hasan301725.6680100
8.1 to P Nissanka, who else breaks the partnership but the all-time leader in T20Is?! Flighted full on fourth stump and skids on to beat the sweep. He gave it a little more air this time and threw off Nissanka's timing on the shot. All that experience showing off there by Shakib.. 71/2
8.4 to WIA Fernando, goodness what a momentum swing! To be fair this was an innocuous straight ball that Avishka made look far more challenging than it was. Flighted full on middle and off, Avishka plays around a straight ball that continues on to middle and leg. Another arm ball, or was it just a stock delivery that didn't turn. Either way, that just needed a straight bat but instead Avishka gets too ambitious. Bangladesh won't care though.. 71/3
