    8.1 Tamim has chopped on! Shortish and wide outside off - possibly wider than a set of stumps outside off - Tamim is drawn to the width like a magnet. He throws his hands at the ball with his feet nailed to the crease. He can only drag a thick inside edge back onto the stumps. Udana and Sri Lanka won't mind this one bit. One can't force shots on this sluggish track 31/2
    5.4 Soumya misses a full-toss has been given out lbw by umpire Hannibal. Wide of the crease, full-toss, slanting in from round the wicket, Soumya plays all around it and is pinned on the front pad in line with middle. This would have crashed into leg stump and Soumya has to exit. Soumya pondered over a review, but rightly decided against it in the end 26/1
    14.3 Welcome back, Akila Dananjaya! Dangled up outside off, full, breaks in, dips, creating distance between the bat and the pitch of the ball. Mithun can only pop it in the air to Kusal Mendis at straight midwicket 52/3
    not out
    18.6 Got him!! He went back looking for the cut due to the flatter trajectory and the line outside off, but it spun back sharply and took the top off much to Sri Lanka's elation. Bangladesh in trouble but this pitch is already playing tricks 68/4
    24.3 What's happened there? Looks like we have a run out, yes he's short of his ground, just short, but should really have been run out by a mile. Pushed towards point and he takes off with the shot for a non existent run, Mushfiqur says no but it's too late, except the fielder from slip who hared across to pick the ball up sends the throw back in blind, on the turn and the keeper does superbly to first collect it and then drag it back on to the stumps just in the nick of time 88/5
    31.5 another short one and he tries to help it along past the keeper as he had couple of balls ago but this one bounced a little extra, was also the slower ball, which meant he was though the stroke too early, just kissed the edge of the bat through to the keeper and Bangladesh are really staring down the barrel now 117/6
    45.3 Spliced into the lap of mid-off. Slower variation from Pradeep, legcutter from the back of the hand, Mehidy has a big slog at it, but gets it high on the bat and pops a catch to Dimuth 201/7
    49.2 lifter outside off from around the wicket, Taijul wants to slug it over midwicket, but does not touch it. Mushfiqur hares across for the bye, but Taijul is ball-watching and is late to respond. Kusal gathers the ball and passes it to Pradeep, who nails the stumps with an overarm throw to catch Taijul short by an inch or two. Mushfiqur is seething and gives the departing Taijul and earful 231/8
