Jaydev Unadkat403328.2572120
18.2 to Sabbir Rahman, knocks him over! And Unadkat screams in triumph (nowhere near the batsman, so no demerits). This is a slower ball and it will be filed under the age old "you miss I hit" tactic bowlers regale their grandchildren with over a roaring fire and some marshmallows.. 147/7
18.3 to Rubel Hossain, middle stump takes a beating and it's another slower ball, perfectly in line with the target, and the batsman generously plays all around it. Can't expect much more than a slog from a No. 9. 148/8
Washington Sundar402015.00110100
3.2 to Litton Das, top edge and it's taken! Beautiful work from Washington! All he does is plant the ball on a length, a shade outside off. Liton therefore thinks he has the room to free his arms and goes for the slog sweep. But the trick here is the slowness of pace. And the preciseness of length. It pitches just before the bat swings, and then bounces over the middle to take the edge. Lovely stuff.. 27/1
Yuzvendra Chahal401834.5091000
4.2 to Tamim Iqbal, what a caaaaatch! Shardul Thakur is the man, standing on the very edge of the long-on boundary. The ball is still set to lob over him for six... that is until he leaps up and sticks out a hand and comes down with that little white thing in his clutches! But he's about to overbalance! There's one.. two.. three little skips... with his hands spread out to keep himself within the ropes... and he pulls it off! India's spinners are ruling in Colombo and Tamim's efforts to dominate them sends him back. He tries a brazen loft, coming down the track to instill momentum into his shot. But Chahal, with that uncanny ability to know when a batsman will attack him, shifts his line wider to ensure a mis-hit. 27/2
4.6 to Soumya Sarkar, sweeps straight to square leg! Attacking batting... at it's worst? Sarkar is new to the crease. Chahal is one of India's match-winners. And he takes a length ball on middle and gift wraps it for Dhawan to collect. 33/3
10.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, miscues the slice and it's taken! Beautiful bowling from Chahal, but it's fast becoming his signature now. The loopy, wide delivery - this time it's the googly - that confounds a batsman looking to tear him apart. Mushfiqur is reaching away from his body. He plays the on-the-up slash, gets a top edge, and Shankar, running to his right tracks it down and takes it with a good dive.. 68/4

Shakib Al Hasan402817.00101200
2.4 to S Dhawan, taken at mid-on! Excellent effort from the sub-fielder Ariful, running forward and to his right to cling on to a leading edge. Good on Shakib too, holding this ball back even though he is under attack. Dhawan comes down the pitch, looking to flick it in the air over midwicket. But his timing is all whack thanks to Shakib's genius. 32/1
Mehidy Hasan Miraz1017017.0021200
Rubel Hossain403528.75103200
3.3 to SK Raina, caught behind down leg but the umpire signals wide. Mushfiqur is adamant. He wants a review. And Bangladesh taken it. It's a short ball down leg. Raina shuffles inside the line and gets an inside edge on the pull shot through to the keeper, who moves to his right and takes a regulation catch. India are two down early, in a big chase, in a final. 32/2
9.3 to KL Rahul, top-edges the pull and it lands safely in the hands of deep square leg. Poor cricket from Rahul. This partnership had Bangladesh on the mat and he slides open the door to let them see the light. A short ball, outside off, getting too big for him to yank over to the leg side becomes his undoing.. 83/3
Nazmul Islam403218.0073110
13.2 to RG Sharma, taken at long-on! Rohit's gone and Bangladesh have pulled ahead in this final! India's captain has been timing them like a dream all night. But this time, going for a slog sweep at a ball that doesn't really give him enough room, he skews it high rather than long. 98/4
Mustafizur Rahman412115.25122000
17.6 to MK Pandey, taken at long-on! What an over from Mustafizur! He's the game-breaker! Continues bowling full and wide outside off. Pandey does manage to get bat to it, but his slog has no timing. Wicket maiden from Mustafizur in the 18th over. 133/5
Soumya Sarkar3033111.0044110
19.5 to V Shankar, taken, it's taken, Bangladesh have a wicket, and it comes despite one man dropping the catch. Long-on runs in to get under the ball. He gets both hands to it but the ball pops out. Luckily, Mehidy has also come running in from long-off and he takes the rebound beautifully.. 162/6
