2.3 to Junaid Siddique, this time Sangakkara hangs on and shows brilliant reflexes, Junaid pokes forward at a delivery which shapes away from him and gets a thick outside edge, Sangakkara flings himself to his left and takes it one-handed in front of first slip, one for the album. 8/1
4.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mushfiqur's miserable tri-series continues, he prods forward to defend but the ball comes back in from outside off, he manages a thick inside edge which cannons on to his off and middle stumps. 12/2
14.2 to Tamim Iqbal, Tamim tries to repeat the shot off the previous ball and pays the penalty, he makes room, gives him the charge and tries to mow him over the on side but the ball clips the toe edge of the bat and Sangakkara takes his second brilliant catch of the morning, he flings to his left and takes it one handed in front of slip. 42/4
Thilan Thushara722012.85313000
18.5 to Shakib Al Hasan, and Bangladesh slide further, Thushara gets it to curve in through the air, Shakib shapes to slash it square of the wicket and plays away from the body, he gets a thick edge to Sangakkara, he tried the same shot a couple of balls earlier. 54/5
Farveez Maharoof803314.12354130
11.5 to Mohammad Ashraful, Maharoof gets his reward after squaring up the batsman just a couple of balls before, he pitches it on a good length and gets it to shape away from the offstump, Ashraful hangs his bat out to steer it away but only succeeds it getting a thick edge to Sangakkara. 34/3
Ajantha Mendis9.402432.48401010
47.4 to Naeem Islam, decides to give him the charge but this time he fails to check his stroke and ends up chipping it tamely to mid-off, he didn't get the elevation either, that ends Naeem's stubborn resistance, he dives to his right and takes it neatly. 151/7
47.6 to Mashrafe Mortaza, pitches it up on middle and leg, Mortaza helps himself to a slog sweep but he fails to clear deep square leg, it goes down Kapugedera's throat. 151/8
49.4 to Rubel Hossain, flights it on middle and off, he slogs him across the line but fails to get the desired elevation, he finds Kapugedera at deep square-leg. 152/10
Muthiah Muralidaran1013323.30413050
32.2 to Mahmudullah, fires it flat and quick from round the wicket and the ball really skid through, he's cramped for room to defend it away and a thick inside edge rolls on to the stumps. 98/6
48.2 to Nazmul Hossain, fires that quicker through the air, he gets down to heave him across the line too early and the ball turns and hits his thigh plumb in front, Enamul Haque gives him out. 151/9

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mashrafe Mortaza1011811.80450010
6.2 to CK Kapugedera, it's 5 for 4 and Mortaza is ecstatic! He pitches it up outside off and gets it to move away, Kapugedera is drawn forward and he ends up tamely edging it to Junaid second slip, Sri Lanka are wobbling and they desperately need some damage control. 5/4
Nazmul Hossain1033033.00454000
5.1 to WU Tharanga, Tharanga loses his patience and gives it all away, Nazmul sprays it wide outside off and tempts the batsman to have a wild swing at it, he stays rooted to the crease and gets a thick outside edge to the keeper, the crowd has gone wild and why not. 4/2
5.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, Mahela's nightmare continues, Nazmul hits a good length outsiede off and gets it to shape away late, a very circumspect Jaywardene pokes at it very lazily and the outside edge flies to Mushfiqur who flings himself to his right and takes it brilliantly. 4/3
7.6 to T Thushara, he hits the timber and noise across the stadium is deafening, Nazmul lands it on a good length just a shade outside off, Thushara shapes to push at it but it is a half-hearted shot and he manages a thick inside edge onto his stumps. 6/5
Shakib Al Hasan1022222.20470100
43.1 to KC Sangakkara, it's THAT man Shakib again! Sangakkara shapes to work him through the on side but plays too early, the leading edge nearly clears the bowler but Shakib leaps up and takes it with his right hand. 114/7
43.3 to KMDN Kulasekara, that's a double strike! Shakib lands it just outside off and Kulasekara shapes to cut, he plays a loose drive without moving his feet and the inside edge trickles on to the stumps. 114/8
