Mashrafe Mortaza1826723.72857027
8.6 to SM Warnapura, first blood. Mashrafe pitches the ball on the off stump and gets the ball to jag back in slightly as Warnapura is caught unaware and just shoulders arms. The ball thuds onto the back foot and Mashrafe, lets the appeal rip. Llong has no objection in giving it and rightly so. 24/1
82.4 to WPUJC Vaas, now thats the wicket Bangladesh was searching for all day and is it late? Mashrafe pitches one on the off stump and gets it to move away a touch as Vaas feathers it to Rahim. Llong took a little time in giving it. 270/7
Mahbubul Alam1945602.949210010
Shahadat Hossain1625523.43717011
43.1 to MG Vandort, and gets a wicket off the very first ball as he pitches it short. Vandort goes for the pull and does not time it and ends up getting a top edge to Shakib at mid wicket.. 121/3
57.1 to HAPW Jayawardene, short on the off stump, Prasanna can't resist the temptation to pull, which he does and gets a top edge to fine leg where Tamim Iqbal does no mistakes and takes the catch. Shahadat is pleased as a punch and why shouldn't he be ?. 171/6
Shakib Al Hasan28.447052.441338100
40.3 to KC Sangakkara, fuller on the off stump, Sangakkara comes down the track and can't time the lofted stroke properly as he forces it to Ashraful, who takes the catch above his head at midwicket and lets out a war cry. Timely wicket that. 119/2
46.2 to DPMD Jayawardene, arm ball does it for Shakib as Mahela is playing for the spin and is beaten neck and crop as the ball sneaks into the gap between bat and the pad to hit the top of off stump. Shakib is mighty happy as he yells in approval of the wicket. 135/4
52.4 to TM Dilshan, gone! this time the straight delivery does the trick as he has Dilshan groping for the spin. Dilshan like his captain earlier is bowled lock, stock and barrel. Well Shakib has these batsmen in a spin now. 155/5
87.2 to KTGD Prasad, there he is weaving his spell on the batsmen, bowls one on the leg and middle line and gets to straighten it a touch. Dammika, comes forward and gets rapped on the front foot, signing good bye to this innings. Bucknor, as usual took some time before lifting the hand. 285/8
89.4 to TT Samaraweera, and thats a five wicket haul for Shakib as he gets Samaraweera to fish at a delivery outside off and manages to elicit the outside edge to first slip, where Junaid fumbles but takes it on the second attempt. Finally the curtains are down on the Lankan innings. 293/10

Chaminda Vaas1143323.00556000
19.2 to Imrul Kayes, Vaas has his man now! Bowls a short delivery aimed at the ribs and manages to eke out an outside edge to keeper, Prassana. Imrul played well, but had to be there for a long time. 68/2
25.5 to Mohammad Ashraful, and the packed off side field ploy works as Ashraful goes for the drive and does not manage to keep it down. Dilshan, stationed at cover, takes a catch diving to his left. It's a pity really that he has gone because Junaid is batting well at the other end. 90/3
Dhammika Prasad1306114.695010000
38.2 to Raqibul Hasan, beaten for pace and a stunned Raqibul walks off, Prasad lands it on the offstump and really gets it to fizz quickly, the ball hits the top of the offstump before Raqibul can even get his bat halfway down to cover the line. 117/5
Tillakaratne Dilshan20201.00100000
Muthiah Muralidaran2284962.221083200
12.2 to Tamim Iqbal, and Murali is away against his favorite opponents as Tamim lunges forward for a defensive stroke. He gets hit on the glove and Warnapura dives to his left at short leg to take the catch. 44/1
31.5 to Junaid Siddique, doosra does the trick for Murali as Junaid is looking to cut it away but all he manages is to guide it onto the stumps and Murali has wicket number 2. 95/4
51.3 to Shakib Al Hasan, outside the off stump, comes forward and feathers it to Mahela at first slip. The tail is officially in now. 162/7
51.4 to Mashrafe Mortaza, on the middle and straightening, Mashrafe pads it up and Murali goes up in glee thinking he has got the wicket and Bucknor agrees. So it's eight down for Bangladesh. 162/8
57.2 to Shahadat Hossain, on the off and middle, Shahadat charges down the track and misses. Prassana does the rest as he stumps him and aids Murali in getting his 66th five wicket haul. 176/9
59.6 to Mahbubul Alam, one over is enough to wrap them up, Murali flights it outside off, draws Alam forward, he doesn't defend properly and the ball brushes his pad after taking the edge and goes straight to Warnapura at forward short-leg. 178/10
Rangana Herath1212912.41512000
48.2 to Mehrab Hossain jnr, and there's the wicket! outside the off stump, draws Mehrab forward and induces the outside edge to Mahela at first slip. They were wanting this wicket. 158/6

Mashrafe Mortaza2145922.80895022
8.6 to MG Vandort, classic delivery and Mortaza should be proud of that, he gets it to swing in sharply and at good pace, Vandort shapes to work it to the on side but fails to cover the inward movement and leaves a lot of daylight between bat and pad, the ball crashes onto middle and leg stumps. 18/2
84.6 to TT Samaraweera, fuller in length outside the off stump and coming in. Samaraweera goes for the drive and is beaten by the movement as his stumps are re-arranged. 291/4
Mahbubul Alam1716213.64739002
7.2 to SM Warnapura, lands just short of a good length on middle stump and comes back in, Warnapura's about a foot outside the crease as he tries to work it to the on side but is struck just above the knee roll, Nigel Llong takes his time before giving it out, it was heading for the legstump but the question was the height. 16/1
Shakib Al Hasan401013413.3517012300
101.2 to TM Dilshan, and there's the wicket! Shakib pitches it short on the middle stump. Dilshan, is looking to steer it away but only manges an outside edge back to the keeper Rahim. 386/5
Shahadat Hossain1416604.71578004
Mehrab Hossain jnr1003723.70353000
51.5 to KC Sangakkara, finally Bangladesh have a wicket as Sangakkara looks to turn a delivery away pitched on the leg stump and Sangakkara feathers and Rahim does the rest. 153/3
102.4 to DPMD Jayawardene, and thats the wicket! Mahela goes for the reverse sweep and is caught by the first slip as he gets a top edge. 388/6

Chaminda Vaas2557412.961109002
86.5 to Mohammad Ashraful, huge disappointment for the home fans, Vaas delivers from over the wicket, lands it on middle and leg, Ashraful shuffles a touch and tries to work it to the on side, the ball straightens and hits him low on the pad, Bucknor doesn't ponder over it too much and raises the finger, that was hitting the stumps. 292/6
Dhammika Prasad25.2510534.1410113101
14.2 to Tamim Iqbal, another promising innings goes to waste, Prasad bangs ut in short down the leg side, Tamim can't resist the pull and feathers an edge to Prasanna Jayawardene, they all go up in appeal and Bucknor doesn't ponder over it for too long. 72/2
120.2 to Shakib Al Hasan, what a strike for Sri Lanka and Shakib falls four short of a deserved ton! Prasad drags it full outside off, Shakib fetches that to drive but gets a thick inside edge onto his stumps, that death rattle will continue to ring in his ears for a while. 403/7
122.3 to Mashrafe Mortaza, edged and Mortaza has to go! Prasad swings it in and lands it on a fullish length, he's drawn forward and gets a thin edge to the keeper, Prasad persists with the appeal and wins it in his favour. 409/8
Muthiah Muralidaran48914142.9321118000
29.3 to Junaid Siddique, outside the off stump, Junaid is looking to leave it but the ball does not bounce as much as he expects it to and it kisses the glove on the way to first slip. 124/3
35.4 to Raqibul Hasan, gone! deceives him with a straight delivery on the off stump, Raqibul is playing for the turn and looks back to see his stumps re-arranged.. 144/4
47.1 to Mehrab Hossain jnr, Mehrab will not forgive himself for that shot, he decides to take on Murali by stepping down the pitch to cart him with the turn over mid-off but fails to clear Kapugedera, that's a gift for Sri Lanka. 180/5
125.3 to Mushfiqur Rahim, gone! Rahim wants to keep the runs flowing as he takes the front foot out of the way and plays a forceful shot on the leg side. Pity that he does not clear Dilshan, at midwicket but what an innings from the little "Baby". 411/9
