    29.1 Has Dananjaya broken through? Umpire Rahman shakes his head and shoots down the caught-behind appeal. The keeper had also whipped the bails off but think the appeal is for the catch behind the wicket. Dickwella insists a review. Dananjaya dangles it up around off and gets it to break away in the corridor. Tamim wafts away from the body with no feet. Has he nicked this? Ultra Edge detects a spike, and Tamim has to exit. Dickwella was so confident that he did not bother consulting with his captain Chandimal for a review. He himself called for it. Umpire Rahman's on-field not-out call has been reversed. Dananjaya and Dickwella are pumped. Sri Lanka needed this opening. No hundred for Tamim, and the Mirpur crowd has been hushed into silence 170/2
    14.5 good take by Dickwella. Anamul has had his share of chances but he still backs himself to hook this short ball despite the complete lack of room. Bounces more than to his liking and gets a top-edge that is taken sharply by Dickwella leaping up and to his left. Stretches out full length and takes it with both hands 71/1
    37.5 ah, what a frustrating end to an innings! It was a nothing delivery, just short and Shakib backs away and slaps it straight back. Hit extremely hard but Gunaratne cups his hands in front of his face 227/3
    46.3 bowled him. Good delivery. A yorker on middle. Rahim gets down for a slog and makes no contact as he is tucked up and the ball cuts in late to clatter into leg stump 284/5
    45.1 fullish, sliding into his pads and Mahmudullah is slightly tucked up. Slower ball as well, not picked by the batsman and Mahmudullah lofts it into the air. Thisara Perera runs forward from long-on, takes a while to settle under it, and it remains in the air for a long, long time. But Perera has judged it perfectly for a superb catch 277/4
    not out
    47.6 seemed like a six but this one's been plucked at the deep square leg boundary. Another short ball but slower again and Mortaza hammers a pull, Dananjaya runs to his left and takes it reverse-cupped in front of the boundary. Made it look easy but it was anything but 297/6
    48.2 yorker, angles in towards middle and Perera goes up in appeal as the ball's squeezed out towards point. Perera thinks it's pad first, and they take the review. And he's right. It's hit him flush on the boot. Question is if it's in line with the stumps.The angle was pretty sharp. Ho, that's hitting the middle part of middle stump. Just straightened down that channel 298/7

    2.1 Mashrafe gives Nasir another over, and he rewards his captain with the wicket of Kusal. This is a poor shot to be honest. Straight ball on middle from around the wicket, the batsman jumps down the track, gets too close to the pitch, and has a big whoosh at it. Kusal only collects thin air while Nasir rattles the middle stump and celebrates 2/1
    9.4 ...and right after switching the angle to Tharanga, the batsman steps out for a lofted hit over mid-off. He is nowhere close to the pitch of the ball and winds up scooping a catch to Mahmudullah at mid-off 43/2
    13.4 Mashrafe, into his seventh over, puts Mendis out of his misery. He couldn't find the gap, he couldn't hit over the top, he was peppered by a volley of bouncers and even copped a jarring blow on the helmet. His hamstring probably wan't in great shape either. Mendis now dares to step down the track and launch it over the bowler's head. Mashrafe smartly pulls his length back and a drop in pace also foxes Mendis and he eventually simply chips it in the air to mid-off. Nineteen runs off 34 balls at a strike-rate of 56 in a 321 chase? Not good enough I'm afraid 62/3
    18.4 keeps low. It's all working against Sri Lanka now. A short of a length delivery, keeps a little low but not like the batsman isn't to blame at all. DIckwella is caught on neither foot rooted to the crease and simply swipes with the ball cutting into him. Gets under the bat and flattens the stumps 85/4
    24.2 oh, that doesn't matter. Because Chandimal has been run out. Punches it away to long-off and sees a regulation single.Just doesn't account for the sharp, powerful throw from the deep. Shakib charges in and swoops down to fire a direct throw with a stump to aim 106/5
    25.4 that's as soft a dismissal as any you'll see. Short, wide, slapped straight into the hands of backward point. SL tumbling at an alarming rate 117/6
    29.5 turns away from him, Perera gets down for a slog against the turn and skews a skier off the outside of the bat to long-off 150/8
    25.5 and another one bites the dust. Gets down for a big slog but it's to the wrong length. It's not full enough and he skews a top-edge. Rahim shifts to his left from behind the stumps and snaffles it 117/7
    32.2 full-toss on middle stump, Dananjaya clears his front leg and aims to muscle it straight over the bowler's head. Instead, he splices a catch to mid-off. Bangladesh win by 163 runs - their biggest margin of victory in ODI cricket 157/10
    30.5 yorker on middle, gets underneath the bat and flattens leg-stump. That's the perfect delivery to the tailender. An inswinging yorker 152/9
