Shakib Al Hasan20914.5071010
2.1 to MD Gunathilaka, taken! Shakib strikes in his comeback. It's flat and straight, Gunathilaka backs away, looking to hit the ball straight. But his timing is off, and all he can do is chip the ball to the fielder at long-on, who runs to his right and takes a smart catch.. 15/1
Rubel Hossain4041110.2556000
19.2 to NLTC Perera, a juggled catch by Tamim. A slower ball around off, Thisara swings but the ball takes the leading edge towards cover. Tamim runs forward, towards mid-off, and juggles the catch.. 154/7
Mustafizur Rahman413929.75112320
3.6 to BKG Mendis, taken at midwicket! A short delivery from Mustafizur, short and hurrying Kusal Mendis on the pull. He can't quite time his pull, picks out the fielder. A fantastic over from Mustafizur, culminates with a wicket.. 22/2
5.4 to MD Shanaka, edged and gone! Sri Lanka are now four down for 32 in a semi-final. Stunning delivery, it's the same offcutter that has made him the bowler he is today. Pitches outside off, lulls the batsman into a stroke and then rips away. Shanaka prods, gets a thick outside edge and it's caught behind. Big trouble for Sri Lanka.. 32/4
Mehidy Hasan Miraz401614.00121000
8.1 to BMAJ Mendis, taken at short fine leg. Sri Lanka continue to go nowhere. It's another attempted sweep, the ball flies to short fine leg via the leading edge and SL sink further. Tried to roll his wrists on the ball and hit it behind square, failed to do so.. 41/5
Soumya Sarkar2021110.5031110
18.2 to MDKJ Perera, caught on the deep midwicket boundary. Full, quick and accurate down leg. Kusal struggles to time his flick, the ball takes the leading edge and travels all the way to Mehidy. Sensational counter-attacking innings from Kusal, bided his time early and then launched.. 138/6

1.4 to Liton Das, tossed up wider than normal, full and wide outside off, Liton chips a catch to mid-off. He had to reach out for that and so was in no control of that shot. All he can do is bunt his catch away.. 11/1
3.5 to Sabbir Rahman, stumped! Beautiful bowling, you could sense panic from Kusal Perera keeps his composure. Slow outside off, the ball finds a big gap between bat and pad, and goes through to Kusal. The ball snakes around in his lap, then his arm. Eventually, it sticks in his left arm. And he whips off the bails with his right hand. Don't think the umpires are checking. Nothing wrong with the bowling though, lulled him forward with that loop and found a big gap between bat and pad.. 33/2
Amila Aponso301916.3362000
12.3 to Mushfiqur Rahim, straight to cover! Mushfiqur runs down to the pitch, looks to go over cover but the ball is slightly quicker than he expected, all he can do is muscle the ball straight to cover. 97/3
Thisara Perera2020010.0032000
Danushka Gunathilaka302418.0061030
13.6 to Tamim Iqbal, edged and taken! Sri Lanka are fighting back. Tamim comes down, looking to drive over cover but the ball is quicker.A thick edge, a big deflection, the ball bounces off the glove into the air. Kusal keeps his composure and takes the catch.. 105/4
Jeevan Mendis402416.0080100
14.5 to Soumya Sarkar, inside edge into the pad, and to Kusal Perera. A googly outside off, clipped into the pad, the ball then somehow lobs back to Kusal off the top of the pad. And the keeper keeps his eyes on the ball and takes another juggled catch. Bangladesh collapsing here.. 109/5
Isuru Udana2.502619.1742100
17.6 to Shakib Al Hasan, Shakib picks out fine leg. No one can believe that, Shakib is in disbelief, Udana is relieved. Full down leg, all Shakib can do is flick the ball straight to fine leg. Out comes the snake dance celebration from Dananjaya, this rivalry is heating up.. 137/6
