Taskin Ahmed3040113.3362320
14.6 to LD Chandimal, Sabbir grabs his third catch in two overs. There was a fine stop at mid-off in between. This was the slower ball on middle, Chandimal closes the bat face and spoons a leading edge in the air. Sabbir throws himself to his left and completes an excellent overhead catch. 150/4
Mustafizur Rahman4048312.0064231
4.3 to MD Gunathilaka, Mustafiz sneaks through the gate of Danushka with a slower cutter. Full and breaks in outside off, breaks through the defences, Danushka did not spot the change-up. He was too early into the drive and had his stumps rattled. Much-needed respite for Bangladesh. 56/1
19.2 to MDKJ Perera, Mushfiq settles under this skier. Cutter from Mustafizur. The length is shortish and line is outside off. Kusal wants to slog it over midwicket. Instead, he top-edges it behind to the keeper. 205/5
19.4 to NLTC Perera, Banged in short and angling away outside off, Thisara can't get on top of the ball. He pulls early and does so against the angle. He top-edges it to Nazmul Islam at deep square leg. 206/6

Nazmul Islam2020010.0010100
Soumya Sarkar1011011.0032020
13.2 to BKG Mendis, Mendis goes for another six, this time he can't clear midwicket. This offbreak bounces more than Mendis expected it to. He can't control a slog-sweep. He top-edges a catch to Sabbir Rahman. Mahmudullah: golden arm. 141/2
13.5 to MD Shanaka, Mahmudullah has taken two wickets in four balls. This was another half-tracker on middle, Shanaka swings so hard that he loses his shape and gets more height as opposed to distance. He picks out Sabbir at deep midwicket too. Golden arm indeed. 142/3

Dushmantha Chameera4044111.0053210
17.3 to Mahmudullah, Kusal Mendis charges in from deep square leg, dives forward, and snags a sharp catch. Slower offcutter, shorter in length, on off, Mahmudullah is way too early into his leg-side swing and holes out. 193/4
Akila Dananjaya3036012.0073310
Nuwan Pradeep403729.2592300
5.5 to Litton Das, Pradeep provides Sri Lanka with the breakthrough! This was full and straight. Liton plays all around his front pad and is pinned in front. Very adjacent. Soft end to a punchy innings. 74/1
14.2 to Soumya Sarkar, Pradeep returns and bounces out Sarkar. Chest-high short ball on off, Pradeep rolls his fingers over the ball and messes up with Sarkar's pull. He skies it to the short midwicket region, where Pradeep himself settles under this skier. 151/3
Danushka Gunathilaka2022011.0053100
Thisara Perera3.403619.8172131
9.3 to Tamim Iqbal, Thisara has Tamim Iqbal chipping a return catch. He bowls a heavy ball. Back of a length on off stump, tucks up Tamim for room. The batsman is in no position to hook it away. His head falls over and Thisara clings onto the return catch. If Thisara doesn't get you with the bat, he'll get you with the ball. And mind you, Bangladesh don't bat very deep. They have only six batsmen and Mehidy Hasan Miraz. 100/2
