Shehan Madushanka3039013.0075220
Danushka Gunathilaka201618.0041010
3.6 to Zakir Hasan, Danushka bowls Zakir for 10. Full, straight ball on middle, from around the stumps, Zakir aims to slog-sweep it across the line. He plays all around it and has his stumps in a mess. 49/1
Isuru Udana4045111.2544150
18.2 to Mahmudullah, tries the scoop, but doesn't come off! Taken by short fine leg. Full outside off, and the captain walks across to the off side to paddle it away. Can't execute it, as the ball comes off the bat's top half. Comfortably taken by Dananjaya. A smart innings comes to an end. 173/4
Thisara Perera403619.0073021
19.3 to Sabbir Rahman, pays the price for being too cheeky! Yorker on leg stump and Sabbir's cheeky paddle doesn't come off. Barely clips leg stump, but that's good enough for the W. 186/5
Akila Dananjaya403208.0062110
Jeevan Mendis302127.0061100
10.1 to Soumya Sarkar, Jeevan strikes first ball! Pays the price for the reverse sweep. It's the straighter one on leg stump, impact's outside leg stump as well and Sarkar's caught in all sorts of trouble. Seems to have pulled a muscle somewhere as he misses the swipe and crashes onto the floor. Hops out of the ground with the help of his team-mates. Was in no position to play that shot. Unlucky for Sarkar, though, since impact was clearly outside leg stump.. 100/2
10.3 to Afif Hossain, smart work from the keeper! And that's disaster for the debutant. It's a full ball on leg stump, turns across Afif as it hits his thigh, but the ball takes the back of his bat as it comes down. Very unlucky, as the ball lobs up off the back of his bat, and Dickwella takes a sharp diving catch in front.. 100/3

Nazmul Islam402526.25112110
4.5 to MD Gunathilaka, Mushfiqur thinks he has his man stumped. Yes, Mushfiq dismisses Danushka. Maiden international wicket for Nazmul. Nice drop in pace. He held this back though he did not find much turn. Danushka stretches out for an ambitious slog-sweep but only collects fresh air. He can't ground his back leg in time. Swift, nifty work from Mushfiq, and Mirpur roars in approval. 53/1
8.3 to WU Tharanga, pushed through on middle, Tharanga gets under it and lifts it straight into the lap of Afif at the midwicket boundary. It's the day of the debutants in Mirpur. Sri Lanka slipping after a rousing opening stand. 92/3
Mohammad Saifuddin2033016.5017010
Rubel Hossain3.4052114.1856230
11.4 to N Dickwella, top edged, and taken by fine leg! Short once again, and Dickwella was ready to pull. But comes off the bat's edge, and it's an excellent catch in the deep. The ball was swirling in the air, but Saifuddin remains calm at deep fine leg. Composes himself, and then dives forward to pocket that catch.. 129/4
Mustafizur Rahman3032010.6675110
Afif Hossain2026113.0042210
7.5 to BKG Mendis, Debutant Afif has half-centurion Mendis holing out to long-off. Sri Lanka had already collected 13 off the over, and Mendis wants another six. He skips out, gets too close to the pitch, and miscues a loft to Sarkar. 90/2
