Fall of wickets: 1-23 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 7.5 ov), 2-66 (Oshada Fernando, 21.2 ov), 3-158 (Kusal Mendis, 56.1 ov), 4-183 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 65.2 ov), 5-319 (Dinesh Chandimal, 113.1 ov), 6-323 (Niroshan Dickwella, 113.5 ov), 7-328 (Ramesh Mendis, 116.2 ov), 8-328 (Lasith Embuldeniya, 116.3 ov), 8-375, 9-390 (Asitha Fernando, 148.5 ov), 10-397 (Angelo Mathews, 152.6 ov) • DRS
7.5 to FDM Karunaratne, that's the breakthrough! Quicker one, fired in around off, Dimuth, late on the ball, played back to the trajectory and not the length to be struck seemingly in front, the umpire took his time but raised the dreaded finger. Dimuth reviews as there was some bat involved but it clearly hit the flap of the pad first. The decision stands. 23/1
21.2 to BOP Fernando, Huge appeal and the umpire raises his finger. However, Fernando reviews this immediately. Probing line outside off, he looks to defend and the balls goes to the keeper which is followed by a vociferous appeal from the fielders. The bat definitely hits the ground. Oh, looks like there is a spike on the ultra-edge when the ball is next to the bat. That is surprising, considering how quickly Fernando went for the review. There was a feather of an edge but enough to send Fernando back. Huge wicket for Bangladesh and Nayeem is pumped. He has definitely deserved this, has looked the best of all bowlers today. Sri Lanka lose a review, minutes before lunch.. 66/2
113.1 to LD Chandimal, that's the breakthrough after a long, long partnership. Chandimal went for the reverse sweep to that ball on off stump but missed. It looked marginally outside the line but the umpire thought otherwise. Chandimal went for the review. There was no bat involved, the impact was in fact in line and it was hitting the wickets so the decision stands. Sri Lanka lose their review, Nayeem gets his third. 319/5
113.5 to N Dickwella, what's happened there? Has he chopped that on? Looks like he missed that completely and was beaten for length and Bangladesh are back in this. It was a length ball on middle, fired in, Dickwella was looking to cut but didn't have the room, the ball skidded through and crashed into the stumps. 323/6
148.5 to AM Fernando, Got'em! Bowls this slightly quicker on middle stump, the ball turns and he plays inside the line of it and sees his stumps splattered. Five-wicket haul for Nayeem Hasan, his third in Test cricket, and he has fully deserved it.. 390/9
152.6 to AD Mathews, Oh, heartbreak for Mathews. He is out on 199. He looks to slog it over the on side, does not get anywhere near the pitch of it and ends up spooning a simple catch to square leg, where Shakib completes the catch. Six wickets for Nayeem, who has bowled his heart out. 6 for 105, his best figures in Test cricket.. 397/10
56.1 to BKG Mendis, what a cracking start for Bangladesh and against the run of play. It was a rank short ball, Mendis went for the pull but couldn't keep the ball down and departs after being comfortably taken at midwicket. An innocuous delivery he could have hit anywhere but a dream start for Bangladesh, a bonus wicket there. 158/3
65.2 to DM de Silva, length on middle, Dhananjaya prods forward uncertainly, seems to take the inside edge onto the pad before ballooning to first slip who puts in a dive and pouches it. The umpire turns down the appeal so Bangladesh review. The replay shows a spike with the ball next to the bat and the umpire has to overturn that5 decision. Massive wicket for Bangladesh, and it's that man, Shakib al Hasan who has delivered the blow. 183/4
116.2 to RTM Mendis, Gets him straight away! Arm ball fired in and Mendis is beaten all ends up. Flatter and shorter on the stumps, Mendis goes for the pull, but the ball kept low and his stumps are left in a mess. Big wicket and Bangladesh will look to end this quickly.. 328/7
116.3 to L Embuldeniya, Two in two! Flatter, quicker on the stumps, and Embuldeniya is hit on the back pad. A vociferous appeal follows and the umpire raises his finger. Embuldeniya discusses with Mathews and goes for the review. Did the ball him him just outside the line? No, umpire's call on replay and it's hitting the off stump. Terrific ball Shakib, who is now on a hattrick.. 328/8

48.5 to Mahmudul Hasan Joy, that's the breakthrough! The leg stump line from around the wicket works. Slightly unfortunate for the batsmen. It was a length ball outside leg, Mahmudul Hasan followed it instinctively and got a glove on it by the look of it to be safely pouched by the keeper. 162/1
146.1 to Shakib Al Hasan, And Shakib loses his patience! There was a warning in Asitha's last over, and the short ball finally pays dividends. Shakib again goes for the ramp over the shoulder, but this time he can only manage a top edge that lobs up to the keeper.. 421/6
169.2 to Taijul Islam, But he can't resist this time! Short again, and Taijul goes for the hook, but he's not in control of it and it goes straight to the man at fine leg, who only has to take a few steps forward to complete an easy take.. 465/9
157.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, bowled 'em! It's the sweep that's brought about Mushfiqur's downfall. It was full on leg stump, Mushfiqur couldn't get any bat on it and was bowled around his legs. Gone for 105. 439/7
163.6 to Nayeem Hasan, gloved and a sharp catch taken at short-leg. It was a length ball around off, he lunged forward to defend but the ball bounced awkwardly and was nicely taken at short-leg. 450/8
54.4 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, edged and taken! Rajitha strikes in his first over. full outside off, drawing the batsman forward, holds its line and induces the nick from an uncertain prod, safely pouched by the keeper. 172/2
60.5 to Mominul Haque, My goodness, that's cleaned him up! Dream dismissal for Rajitha here, who has been peppering that outside off channel, on a length. Mominul has been content defending stoutly, but this time Rajitha gets a hint of inward movement off the seam, and it's through Mominul's defences, crashing into off stump. World class bowling from the concussion sub.. 184/3
bowled 'em! Tamim can't add to his score. Fullish delivery angled in from around the wicket, bursts through the gap between bat and pad as he attempts an expansive drive and stumps are splattered. Rajitha is on a hat-trick here. 220/3
134.1 to Liton Das, edged and taken! It was an innocuous warm-up delivery, short and wide of off, Litton went chasing after it and only managed a nick to the keeper.Third wicket for Rajitha. Great start for Sri Lanka. 385/4
134.2 to Tamim Iqbal, bowled 'em! Tamim can't add to his score. Fullish delivery angled in from around the wicket, bursts through the gap between bat and pad as he attempts an expansive drive and stumps are splattered. Rajitha is on a hat-trick here. 385/5
Short, wide and this is wild attempted heave by Shoriful, who misses completely. But he's on the ground immediately after that shot. This is not looking good.. 465/9

Fall of wickets: 1-36 (Oshada Fernando, 11.5 ov), 2-39 (Lasith Embuldeniya, 17.1 ov), 3-106 (Kusal Mendis, 31.2 ov), 4-110 (Angelo Mathews, 35.6 ov), 5-143 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 47.1 ov), 6-161 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 56.2 ov) • DRS
56.2 to DM de Silva, that's the 6th and Shakib's into the act. It was a short ball on middle, Dhananjaya looked to pull it but couldn't get enough elevation to clear midwicket or keep it down, mistimed it straight to the fielder. 161/6
17.1 to L Embuldeniya, What an absolute peach from Taijul! This spins from miles outside off, going through Embuldeniya's defences, to rattle middle and leg! There's not much room between bat and pad, but my word doesn't Taijul find it. He will be chuffed with that, and Bangladesh end the day on a high.. 39/2
31.2 to BKG Mendis, And he's bowled him! Taijul with an absolute beauty! This is flighted on a good length on middle and off, draws Mendis into the forward defence, and beats him on the outside edge. Initially, everyone thinks it's through to the keeper, but then the realisation dawns that it's clipped the off peg. Mendis has to go, two short of his fifty.. 106/3
35.6 to AD Mathews, And Taijul strikes again! This is a cracker of a return catch. Angelo was getting frustrated and he takes this one that's tossed up and leathers it back towards Taijul. It's at head height over his left shoulder and the bowler reacts swiftly to hold on to this with both hands. That was travelling at a fair clip.. 110/4
47.1 to FDM Karunaratne, Taijul gets the big fish Dimuth Karunaratne. It was full outside off, Dimuth skipped down the wicket, didn't get right to the pitch of it and turned the face, but he couldn't keep it down and the midwicket pouched it gleefully diving to his right. Fourth wicket for Taijul and Bangladesh well and truly on top. 143/5
