Full commentary

Presentation for the first ODI of the decade

Kumar Sangakkara "I've seen dew before, but never like this. I wouldn't want to field in conditions like this, my bowlers wouldn't want to bowl in these conditions. The difference is, literally, day and night. Perhaps we need an 11am start, and finish the games before 6.45pm types. Talks are on, everybody has to like the idea, including the TV network." Cheeky Kumar there, but an issue certainly worth a thought in the coming six matches. Cheers

Tillkaratne Dilshan is the Man of the Match, but because of his hamstring injury he can't come out to accept the trophy.

Shakib Al Hasan "We batted really well, but the dew came in at 6pm, so it hampered us. We have four spinners, so it hurt us. Some of our middle-order batsmen didn't click today, but we are moving in the right direction."
