4

Perera to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, edged but it bisects the keeper and the lone slip fielder. Spun from outside off and took the edge of Soumya Sarkar's defence. The keeper was a little late to react, stuck his right hand out but the ball had one past him by then. Races to the third man fence

4

Perera to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, skips down the track and whips this one over mid-wicket. Did not have much height on the shot but managed to evade the leaping man in that region

W

to Soumya Sarkar, out Caught by Tharanga!! The captain strikes. How lethal he becomes on a 5th day pitch. Soumya Sarkar is caught at mid-off. This wicket has been produced by what happened on the previous ball. Soumya Sarkar, wary of the ball doing so much, steps down and decides to unsettle the birthday boy. It is a slower one that dips on him. Soumya Sarkar's swing loses the shape and the ball takes the outer part of the toe of the bat before sailing in front of long-off. Upul Tharanga is not going to let that go. Sri Lanka are on the board and the test begins for Bangladesh. Soumya Sarkar c Tharanga b 10(26) [4s-2]

W

to Kayes, out Caught by Gunaratne!! Two in two. is delighted. Kayes is caught at slip. It was a quicker delivery, did not turn at all. The new man pushed at it with hard hands, gets a thick edge that goes to the right of the fielder in the cordon, easy one for him. Lankans are going wild out there. In the process, some of them run on the pitch and are asked by umpire Aleem Dar to not do so. What an over from . Has paved the way for a win for his team. Kayes c Gunaratne b 0(1)

4

Silva to S Rahman, FOUR, gets across and takes it on the half-volley before helping it with a lap to the fine leg fence

4

to Tamim, FOUR, flatter ball. Tamim stays back and punches past the man at cover. No one in the deep and it races away

4

Perera to Tamim, FOUR, excellent use of the feet. Makes room a touch as he comes down to meet the pitch of the ball and crash it through the covers. Splits the gap on the off-side to perfection and gets a boundary

4

Perera to S Rahman, FOUR, cheeky from Sabbir. Sees the width and reverse paddles it fine towards third man fence. His second boundary in the innings so far

4

to Tamim, FOUR, now its Tamim's turn. Width on offer outside off, he os quick to reverse his hands and sweep it fine towards fine leg. No chance for the man in the deep

4

to S Rahman, FOUR, wow!! Excellent looking shot from Sabbir Rahman. Leans onto the front foot and caresses it through the cover. Kept his eyes right under the ball as he picks the gap through covers

4

to S Rahman, FOUR, good positive use of the feet. Comes down the pitch and meets the ball full. Uses his wrists to whip it to the on-side

OT

to Tamim, 2 runs, excellent knock from Tamim. His 22nd Test fifty. Bangladesh stand up to applaud the effort. They kow how important this knock is. Tamim tickles it down to fine leg and collects a brace

4

to Tamim, FOUR, Tamim is picking well. Picks his back of the hand googly and thumps it wide of mid-on. The fielder had no chance of getting his hand anywhere close to that as it flies over him

4

to S Rahman, FOUR, follows it up with a full delivery outside off, Sabbir drills the drive wide of short cover. No chance of stopping that once it beats the in field. Good looking shot that

4

to Tamim, FOUR, Tamim is looking so confident. Comes down the track and goes inside out over extra cover. It was a tad too full and he gets his bat under the ball to get the elevation to get it over the field

6

to Tamim, SIX, wow!! This is even better. The googly this time and Tamim is down the wicket to thump it over long-on fence. The ball sails deep in the stands

4

to Tamim, FOUR, poor delivery from . Tamim stands tall and whips it to deep mid-wicket. There is no one in the deep to stop that and the ball crashes to the fence

OT

Perera to Tamim, 2 runs, 100-run partnership comes up for this pair. Dabs it wide of slip and gets a brace

4

to Tamim, FOUR, driven handsomely through the covers. Tossed up delivery outside off and Tamim gets to the pitch of the ball and leans onto to it superbly

W

Perera to Tamim, out Caught by Chandimal!! Tamim has thrown in away. But is it too late for the Sri Lankans? Sees the tossed up delivery and comes down the track to go big. He loses shape on the way and the mistimed shot skies over Chandimal at mid-on, who keeps his eyes on the ball and takes a good catch running back. Is this the opening Sri Lanka wanted? Tamim c Chandimal b Perera 82(125) [4s-7 6s-1]

4

to Shakib, FOUR, Shakib starts from where he left. Gets a big stride forward and drives it against the turn. Beats mid-off and races away to the fence

W

Perera to S Rahman, out Lbw!! LBW appeal! Denied. Sri Lanka want it to be sent upstairs. Legal ball. No bat there. Ball tracking: Pitching in line, impact in line and hitting the stumps. Decision reversed! Is there a twist in the tale? Umpire Ravi's horrid match continues. Coming to the ball: It was pitched up on leg from round the wicket and Sabbir went for the sweep. The ball scoots under his bat and hit low on the pad. The umpire was not convinced but the hosts reviewed it. They had to and they got it right. S Rahman lbw b Perera 41(76) [4s-5]

OT

to Shakib, no run, reviews! Appeal for a caught behind as Shakib misses the sweep. Seems off the elbow. It has missed the bat for sure. But they are checking if there was some glove. Sri Lanka lose the review. Bangladesh swallow their hearts back, which must have been in the mouth. It was tossed up around off and Shakib tried to fetch the sweep from there, got it off the elbow that popped towards Dickwella

4

to Rahim, byes, FOUR, sharp turn outside off and Rahim lets it go. It beats the keeper and runs to the third man fence

W

Perera to Shakib, out Bowled!! Wait! What's that? Shakib seems to have chopped on. Not sure whether it came off the keeper's pad. Dickwella appealed and the umpires converse to go upstairs. Replays: It did touch the off-stump. Shakib is bowled. He has played on. Big wicket! He is gone. It was a flatter ball outside off. Shakib went back to cut but chopped on. For a moment, we thought it deflected on the stumps off the keeper's pad but replays showed otherwise. This match is in no mood to settle. Another twist. Shakib b Perera 15(43) [4s-1]

OT

Perera to Rahim, no run, Umpire Ravi takes forever and adjudges Rahim lbw. He has referred it. Legal delivery. No shot played so we will go to ball tracking... despite it being an impact well outside off. Missing the off-stump. Ravi's decision reversed. I am surprised. Umm, not really! It was turning in from outside off and Rahim padded it away. The umpire took some time but raised his finger. Rahim could not believe his luck and reviewed to save his wicket

4

to Mosaddek, FOUR, he is feeling the nerves. Only human to do so. Such a big match and it happens to be his debut. Steps down and mistimes the big swing, does not come off the meat of the bat but gets it wide of deep extra cover. A couple of bounces and into the fence

4

Perera to Rahim, FOUR, another miscued hit. But this too has gone in the gap. Rahim goes down the track and the bat turns in his hand on the swing, the ball goes over the man at mid-on and trickles down to the fence

4

to Mosaddek, FOUR, another wild heave across the line after stepping down the pitch. Goes against the spin, does not quite get off the meat of the bat. But manages to put it over the man at short mid-wicket. Runs down the fence

W

to Mosaddek, out Caught by Dickwella!! Turn and bounce and Mosaddek wants to guide it. Does not control and gloves into the hands of the keeper. But it's a little too late for Sri Lanka. Bangladesh need just two to win. Mosaddek c Dickwella b 13(28) [4s-2]

4

Hasan to Tharanga, FOUR, full ball that is wide as well, allows Tharanga the space to free his arms; he does so and drives through cover

4

Roy to Karunaratne, FOUR, Karunaratne waits for this length delivery and opens the face of the bat on the defence and runs it between backward point and gully

4

Roy to Karunaratne, FOUR, Roy is not helping his side by being too short outside off. Once again there is some space for Karunaratne, who waits and punches between gully and point; races away in no time

4

Hasan to Tharanga, FOUR, Bangladesh are leaking runs. Short and wide outside off. Tharanga cuts well and gets in the gap through backward point

4

to Tharanga, FOUR, fortunate! Tharanga goes for the cut to a ball that is not wide of him to make it a smooth process, underedges; almost chops on! Almost. Races to the fine leg fence instead

4

to Karunaratne, FOUR, steps down the track and takes it on the full. Cracks past the bowler and races to the long-on fence

4

to Tharanga, byes, FOUR, Tharanga tries to pad it away. It does not hit his pad and scoots between the keeper and the slip fielder before racing away to the third man fence

W

Hasan to Tharanga, out Bowled!! Dream delivery for any off-spinner. Pitches on middle and spins past the blade of Tharanga to uproot the off-stump. Tharanga couldn't do much with this peach of a delivery. He can't believe it as he walks back shell shocked. Hasan is delighted with the breakthrough and his teammates give him a big hug. Tharanga b Hasan 26(40) [4s-3]

4

to Kusal Mendis, FOUR, controlled steer down to deep backward point. It was angled away outside off, Kusal Mendis gets forward and opens the bat face to guide it past backward point

4

to Karunaratne, FOUR, short delivery outside off, enough width for Karunaratne to throw his hands at that. He decides late to go after it and hits it to the right of deep backward point. The ball beats the fielder and races into the fence

4

Islam o Karunarane, FOUR, slipping on he legs from a shorish lengh. Karunarane goes back and ucks hrough mid-wicke

OT

Islam o Karunarane, 1 run, fify for Karunarane. Wais for he quicker delivery and guides i o deep backward poin

4

Roy to Karunaratne, FOUR, well played! Gets a bit of space outside off and moves back in the line to punch past cover. No one in the deep and it races away to the fence

4

Hasan to Kusal Mendis, FOUR, slog sweeps and finds the gap through backward square leg. Things change, and how quickly

4

to Karunaratne, FOUR, excellent timing from Karunaratne. Turns into the left-hander, Karunaratne whips it wide of mid-wicket and helps himself with a boundary

W

to Kusal Mendis, out Caught by Rahim!! delayed appeal for caught behind. S Ravi turns it down. Bangladesh have taken a review. Front foot is well in and the third umpire asks for splitscreen to spot the edge. Don't think there is anything to overturn the decision. He asks for more replays. The gaint screen flashes OUT. Not sure what Marius Erasmus spotted to overturn the decision. Coming to the ball. It was a length delivery that straightens a touch. Might have taken the slightest of nicks through to the keeper. There was some sound when the ball passes the bat, which helped Marius Erasmus to rule it OUT. Kusal Mendis c Rahim b 36(91) [4s-2]

4

to Karunaratne, FOUR, fuller in length on off-stump. Karunaratne punches it down the ground with a full bat face and beats the diving mid-on fielder for a boundary. Excellent shot that

6

to Karunaratne, SIX, brilliant use of the feet from Karunaratne. Comes down the track in a flash and nails it over long-on fence for a maximum

4

to Chandimal, FOUR, tries to attack the stumps and slips it down the leg, Chandimal helps it with a flick down to fine leg. Beats the fielder as he was a bit squarer

W

to Chandimal, out Caught by Rahim!! Poor shot from Chandimal. Rahman's patience has been rewarded. He kept bowling in that fifth stump channel. Chandimal pokes at it this time and gets a thick outside to the right of Rahim. He dives and takes it with both his hands. Not much herioics from Chandimal in this innings and Sri Lanka are now effectively 36 for 3. Chandimal c Rahim b 5(13) [4s-1]

4

to Gunaratne, FOUR, driven beautifully to get to his first boundary. Leans onto the front foot and creams it past cover. The man in the deep couldn't get anywhere close to the ball to stop that

W

to Gunaratne, out Lbw!! That was flirting with danger. Not the ideal delivery to let go. It was always going to come back in with the arm. Gunaratne decides to pad it away to the off-side. The impact was just outside off-stump, but since he didn't offer a shot, goes up for an LBW. Aleem Dar had no doubts in mind as he rules him out. Gunaratne doesn't bother to check with his partner for the review and he walks back to the pavillion. Bangladesh are right on top here. Gunaratne lbw b 7(15) [4s-1]

W

to de Silva, out Caught by Rahim!! Half the side is back in the hut now. Rahman gets his third. The length was too full outside off. de Silva pushes at it without any feet movement and gets a thick outside edge to Rahim, who pouches it comfortably. Sri Lanka are in a spot of bother as the scorecard reads 48 for 5. de Silva c Rahim b 0(7)

4

to Karunaratne, FOUR, edged and runs between the keeper and the lone slip fielder, runs to the third man fence and earns him a well-deserved ton. He continues to pile runs in the second innings

OT

to Dickwella, no run, Reviewed. LBW appeal against Dickwella. Aleem Dar was confident of his call but wanted to check. It's a sweep shot that did not get any bat to it. Delivery is a legal one. Impact can be an issue! 'I have got no bat there,' says the man upstairs. Ball tracking now: Impact is umpire's call and Bangladesh lose a review

W

to Dickwella, out Caught by Rahim!! What a brilliant piece of keeping from Rahim. Anticipated the shot from Dickwella and moved to his right. Was ready to grab the lap sweep from the batsman. It came off the face of the bat but the keeper was ready, grabbed it with ease and Sri Lanka are staring down the barrel. Dickwella c Rahim b 5(15)

4

to Karunaratne, FOUR, short delivery outside off, Karunaratne makes room and cuts it in front of square on the off-side. No need to run for those. This is also the first boundary for Sri Lanka in 18 overs

OT

to Dilruwan Perera, no run, Bangladesh take the LBW case upstairs. Front foot is fine. Definite pad first and they are now waiting for the ball tracking. Pitches in line, impact in line, but the wickets are missing. Coming to the ball, Dilruwan Perera gets a big stride forward to defend. He hides his bat as he looks to defend. Aleem Dar shakes his head and wanted to take the review. Bangladesh have now lost both the reviews

W

to Karunaratne, out Caught by Soumya Sarkar!! What a time to get a wicket. It's the new ball that has done the trick. Al Hasan fires it outside off. The new ball doesn't turn and gets Karunaratne playing down the wrong line. He pushes at it with hard hands and gets a thick outside edge to the slip. Soumya Sarkar takes a smart catch. roars in delight. Karunaratne c Soumya Sarkar b 126(244) [4s-10 6s-1]

OT

to Herath, no run, This looks plumb and is given OUT! Herath takes the review. Front foot is fine. Looks like there is no bat involved. He asks for more replays. Pitches in line, impact in line but wickets missing. What a review this is for Sri Lanka. Gets it to overturn. Herath looks to play across and misses a straight delivery. The ball hits him on the flap of the back leg. HawkEye confirms the wickets were missing and Herath survives. Not a great Test match for S Ravi. Yet another decision that has been overturned

W

Islam o Herah, ou Lbw!! LBW given! Herah reviews sraighaway, has o. Was here some inside edge? I have sopped rusing my eyes, so I will raher wai for he replays. Legal delivery, his ba go suck in his fron leg as he ried o work wih he urn. Here is he ball racking: Oh, he is ou. hree reds. I was relaively fuller and Herah should have been on he fron foo o negoiae ha. He wen back and he ball urned in. o accenuae his miseries, Herah's ba hudded on o his fron leg and he ball pinged he kneeroll. Umpire Aleem Dar was convinced. Even Herah knew his fae bu decided o review i. Herah lbw b Islam 9(32)

4

Islam o Lakmal, FOUR, wih so many men under his eyes, Lakmal decides o use his fee and wris his one hrough mid-wicke. here is a big gap in ha region and he ball races o he fence

4

Roy to Lakmal, FOUR, bouncer! An attempted one. Does not rise enough and Lakmal, the tall guy that he is, pulls through mid-wicket

4

Hasan to Dilruwan Perera, FOUR, short ball. Dilruwan Perera goes for the pull and inside edges to the fine leg fence. Welcome four

4

Hasan to Dilruwan Perera, FOUR, tossed up delivery. Dilruwan Perera misses the drive. In fact gets off the toe of the bat and it foxes the keeper. Did not have the bounce to help Rahim's job, races to the third man fence

OT

to Lakmal, no run, What was that? So appeal for a catch at FSL! Bangladesh are confident. Umpire Aleem Dar nods but almost immediately says it's not out. And then Bangladesh go upstairs. It has hit the thigh pad of Lakmal. But the question is did it brush the face of the bat? Audio does not have much to offer. They have zoomed in now. Without UltraEdge, these calls become so difficult to give. "Aleem, I have nothing conclusive to overturn your decision so you can stay with your decision," says the third umpire. Lakmal wanted to tuck off the back foot and missed. The ball popped to FSL. The umpire nodded for a second but soon after gave it Not Out. Bizarre! Tough to explain what he was thinking. That will be stumps

4

to Lakmal, FOUR, luck going Sri Lanka's way. Lakmal slashes at a wide delivery and gets a thick outside edge that flies over the gully fielder. Into the third man fence

4

to Lakmal, FOUR, what a shot to bring up 150 lead. Fuller length delivery outside off, Lakmal gets forward and drives it on the up. Finds the deep cover fence and collects his second boundary of the over

4

to Dilruwan Perera, FOUR, angles it on the pads, clipped down to fine leg and collects another boundary. Bangladesh are leaking runs

4

to Dilruwan Perera, FOUR, tosses it outside the leg-stump, Dilruwan Perera gets low and sweeps it down to fine leg. Four more

OT

to Dilruwan Perera, 1 run, review for LBW. Given not out on field by S Ravi. Fair delivery says the man upstairs. There is a huge inside edge before the ball thuds the pad. So the decision will stay and Bangladesh lose both their reviews. Fizz tried to attack the pads, Dilruwan Perera flicks it and gets a thick inside edge onto the pad. Would have been a goner had he not got bat to that

4

to Dilruwan Perera, FOUR, more runs for Sri Lanka. Width produced from Fizz. Dilruwan Perera steers it along the ground and splits the gap between slip and gully to run it down to third man fence. These are frustrating runs for Bangladesh

4

Islam o Dilruwan Perera, FOUR, ickled fine o fine leg. he fielder pus in a dive and sops he ball, bu is on he ropes as he does ha. Four more runs added o he ally

OT

Hasan to Dilruwan Perera, 1 run, what a knock this is for Sri Lanka. The crowd are up on their feet. Play it with soft hand and gets the outside edge roll towards short third man. His 4th Test fifty. Raises his bat to the crowd and soaks in the applause

W

Hasan to Dilruwan Perera, out Dilruwan Perera Run Out!! Have Bangladesh got themselves a wicket here? Yes they have. Out flashes on the screen. A mix-up has cost Sri Lanka a wicket. It was tucked straight to square leg. Subashis Roy fumbles and allows the duo to go for the run, but he was quick to correct his mistake as he gets to the ball quickly and throws it to the bowler's end to catch Dilruwan Perera well short of the ground despite his dive. Hasan does well to collect the throw as well. All in all, Bangladesh have managed to break this 80-run partnership. Dilruwan Perera run out (Subashis Roy/ Hasan) 50(174) [4s-6]

W

to Lakmal, out Caught by Mosaddek!! Lakaml decides to hit it out of the park. Comes down the wicket and tries to lift it over long-off. Doesn't get it off the meat of the blade and the ball skies under Mosaddek Hossain, who settles under it to take a good catch. Lakmal c Mosaddek b 42(48) [4s-4]

4

Perera to Tamim, FOUR, what a shot! 4th over of the innings and Tamim decides to skip down the track and then go inside out with the turn. The only thing cautious with the shot was that he went with the turn, picks up a four to the deep cover fence

4

Perera to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, excellent shot from Soumya Sarkar. Sees the tossed up delivery and leans on the front foot to cream this through covers. No chance of stopping those once it beats the in-field

4

to Tamim, FOUR, cracking cover drive from Tamim Iqbal. Half-volley outside off and Tamim gets to pitch of the ball to drive it past cover. Excellent shot that

4

to Tamim, byes, FOUR, tries to attack the pads and slips it way down the leg side. Tamim can't get close with his flick. Dickwell too is nowhere near the ball and it runs down as four byes

4

to Tamim, FOUR, top shot that!! Gets forward and drills it straight back past the bowler. had no chance of stopping that in his followthrough

4

to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, width on offer and Soumya Sarkar throws the kitchen sink at that. Gets forward and crashes it to deep extra cover

4

to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, driven straight down the ground. Herath runs to his right and puts it a dive. The ball sneaks under him and races away to the fence

4

to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, poor shot from Soumya Sarkar fetches him a lucky boundary. tosses it up well outside off. Soumya Sarkar reaches out for the drive and hits it uppishly just wide of diving point fielder

4

Perera to Tamim, FOUR, full and on the pads, Tamim whips it to deep mid-wicket and collects a boundary

4

to Tamim, FOUR, nicely done by Tamim. Got the width and did not rush into the shot, waited and dabbed behind point. Timed it well to beat the fielder to the fence

4

Perera to Tamim, FOUR, some timing on this one. Was on the legs of Tamim and he worked it with the spin and found the gap at mid-wicket

4

to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, short ball. is struggling to get his length right. Soumya Sarkar has all the time in the world to rock back and pull to the deep mid-wicket fence

W

to Tamim, out Lbw!! Finally Sri Lanka review, for an lbw against Tamim. Two noises (that's what we heard). Legal delivery. Looks close. No bat. The sound was from the bat hitting the ground. Ball tracking: Pitched in line, impact in line. Hitting. Decision reversed! Tamim is gone. It was a full ball on the stumps and Tamim tried to work across the line, missed it. Once it was clear that there was no bat involved, it was going to be tough for Tamim. That will be tea. Tamim lbw b 49(91) [4s-6]

4

to Kayes, FOUR, 100 up for Bangladesh. Streaky way to get there, but they will take it. The arm ball goes straight and takes the outside edge of Kayes' front foot push. The ball runs down to third man and hits the fence before the fielder puts in a dive to save any runs

4

to Kayes, FOUR, won't mind this. Kayes bring out the reverse sweep out and hits it well. No chance for the fielder at point as the ball hits the third man fence in a hurry

OT

Perera to Soumya Sarkar, 3 runs, dangerous shot with a slip in place. Just a bit short and turns away outside off. Soumya Sarkar opens the bat face and dabs it wide of the diving slip fielder. Runs three and gets to his fifty. His teammates applaud the effort

OT

Perera to Kayes, no run, third umpire has been pressed in for a stumping chance. Dickwella was quick to whip the bails off, but is Kayes' foot outside the line? Doesn't seen to be. He has planted his back foot back in time. Spins across the left-hander and Kayes gets beaten on the outside edge. It was very well bowled as Perera drew Kayes forward with the loop and got it to grip and turn past the edge

4

Perera to Kayes, FOUR, shot of the day so far. Gets and hits it inside out over extra cover. The key here was he hit it through the line. Hits the fence in a jiffy

4

to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, now it's Soumya Sarkar, who goes inside out. Comes down the track and thumps it over the cover fielder. There was protection in the deep, but the fielder couldn't get to the ball in time

W

to Soumya Sarkar, out Bowled!! He's done him with a wrong 'un. The umpire check for the no-ball and it's fine. He will have to make his way back to the pavillion. Soumya Sarkar wasn't picking the googlies from the hand of . He tries to get to pitch of the ball and plays all over it as the ball sneaks through the bat-pad gap to shatter the middle stump. Soumya Sarkar fails to convert it into a hundred again. Soumya Sarkar b 61(121) [4s-6]

4

to S Rahman, FOUR, width on offer and Sabbir drills the cover drive. What a way to get off the mark. Shows his class with a that

4

to S Rahman, FOUR, thrown down the leg-side and Sabbir is not going to miss out. Goes for the sweep and connects well to pick up a boundary to the fine leg fence

4

to S Rahman, FOUR, there is not much space to play this shot. But Sabbir does not miss out, sees that the length is a bit on the shorter side and takes his chance on the cut, manages to put in the gap past the man at point

D

to Kayes, 1 run, dropped! Chandimal at deep square leg has dropped a sitter. Was a short ball and Kayes went for the pull, that was aerial. Chandimal took a few steps in and had it covered. But the ball popped out as he tried to close his palms

4

to S Rahman, FOUR, that's poor from the man at deep backward square leg. He got to the ball moving to his left but let it sneak through. It was a risky shot from Sabbir who went for the sweep on a full ball, was lucky to have put bat to that

4

to S Rahman, FOUR, too short and Sabbir helps himself with a cut that races to the deep point fence in no time

OT

to S Rahman, no run, Herath consults his keeper and reviews for an lbw. Front foot is fine. Sabbir is the man in question. There's no bat. Pitched in line, impact in line... but missing so the decision stays. Sabbir prodded forward to block but the ball straightened and beat his bat before thudding into the pad

4

to Kayes, FOUR, having beaten him quite a number of times, the idea to float this one to Kayes was not a bad one from . Just that it was too full outside off and Kayes cracked the drive, beating a dive from Lakmal, who gave it all running to his left at sweeper cover

W

to Kayes, out Lbw!! Full, full and then this short ball that comes in. The googly that turned sharply. Kayes could have been a little patient with only a few overs to go for stumps. But he thought of pulling it, the ball beat his bat and hit him on the back leg. Dead in front. The umpire did not hesitate and so did the batsman, who knew his fate was sealed and not wasted the review. Kayes lbw b 34(78) [4s-4]

W

to T Islam, out Lbw!! Reviewed! Given not out for lbw. But it looked mighty close. Seems a legit one to me. Let's see what we have here. Legal delivery. Googly that is far away from the bat on Taijul's forward defence. Ball tracking: Impact in line and hitting. What a horrid day S Ravi is having. One cannot blame T Islam for what he did. He was new to the crease. As a tail-ender you want to get on the front foot to a spinner. He did so, but failed to read the turn on it. The googly beat his bat and hit him low on the kneeroll. The move to send a nighwatchman bites the dust. Hat-trick ball coming up. Decision reversedT Islam lbw b 0(1)

4

to Shakib, FOUR, hat-trick ball? Oh, who cares? Shakib fetches the sweep from outside off and sends it to the deep mid-wicket fence. Would not have thought that he will bat today but now that he is here, he needs to concentrate hard for these couple of overs

W

to S Rahman, out Caught by de Silva!! And there it is. The same old problem of throwing the start. Short ball and Sabbir goes for the pull that takes the top edge and goes low to the man at leg-gully. A fine catch taken there. Bangladesh have lost three wickets in no time. 3 wickets in the last 7 balls. What is happening there? S Rahman c de Silva b 42(54) [4s-5]

4

to Shakib, FOUR, Shakib is looking positive. Sinks low and sweeps it along the ground to deep mid-wicket. No chance of stopping those

4

to Shakib, FOUR, fielder in the deep makes a mess at that one. Shakib goes for the sweep again. This time he doesn't bother to keep it down and he hits it in the air. The deep square leg fielder misjudges it and palms it over for a boundary

4

to Shakib, FOUR, top shot!! Leans on the front foot and drives it handsomely through the covers. The fielder there had no chance of stopping that

4

to Rahim, FOUR, top shot! Sees the opportunity and leans onto the front foot to drive. Creams it past mid-off and collects a boundary

4

to Rahim, FOUR, similar line, Rahim is in a good position this time as he flicks it along the ground wide of mid-wicket. Mid-on fielder's chase goes in vain

4

to Rahim, FOUR, runs are coming thick and fast for Bangladesh. Rahim sinks low and sweeps it to deep backward square leg. Lakmal there, makes a mess of it and allows it to go through his leg for a boundary

4

to Rahim, FOUR, tosses it outside off, Rahim skips down the track and drives it handsomely through the covers. The ball rockets to the fence

4

to Rahim, FOUR, sweeps a full ball. That's full of danger but as long he puts bat to it. Sends it wide of the man at deep square leg and fetches a four for himself

4

Perera to Rahim, FOUR, 50 off 66 balls. Fluent drives have been a regular feature in this innings and showcases one once again. Is light on his feet to meet the pitch of the ball and then thread the gap through extra cover

OT

to Rahim, no run, Reviewed! LBW call that went against Lanka. Rahim is the man in danger. Legal delivery. It's a full ball and Rahim has missed the sweep. Seems no bat to me. There's no bat - confirmed by the splitscreen. Impact can be an issue. We are waiting for the ball tracking... Impact is umpire's call so Aleem Dar can stay with his decision. Everything else was right with that appeal. Just that the impact was marginal and it went in favour of the batsman

W

to Rahim, out Bowled!! This! New ball has done this. Rahim goes for the drive, is not much feet from him. Leaves a lot of space between his pad and bat. The ball nips back in a long way and shatters the stumps. Sri Lanka sniff a comeback here. Rahim b 52(81) [4s-6]

4

to Mosaddek, FOUR, well floated on off. Mosaddek drives and finds the gap through cover

4

to Shakib, FOUR, short ball and Shakib clears the man at deep square leg with the pull. One bounce and into the fence. But why was the fielder standing so inside the fence? Had he been on the fence, it would have gone straight into his palms

OT

to Shakib, 1 run, fifty for Shakib. Well paced. Short ball and he get on top with the pull to square leg to get there

6

to Mosaddek, SIX, where did this come from? Out of nowhere he has decided to step down the track and loft over 's head for a maximum

4

to Mosaddek, FOUR, top shot!! Leans onto the front foot and caresses it through the cover region. It was class written all over it

4

to Mosaddek, FOUR, gets the lead in style. Pulls the short delivery well wide of the man in the deep. They now lead by 3 runs

4

to Mosaddek, FOUR, two in a row. Width on offer and Mosaddek opens the bat face to steer it down to third man. Collects his fourth boundary with that

4

to Mosaddek, FOUR, too full and width on offer. Mosaddek gets a big stride forward and drills the drive past covers. The fielder in the deep escorts the ball to the ropes

4

to Mosaddek, FOUR, gives just a bit of flight and is enough for Mosaddek to jump down the track and go inside out. Connects well and splits the gap in the deep to perfection to fetch himself a boundary

4

Perera to Shakib, FOUR, turning outside off. Shakib waits and cuts it late to beat the man at short third man

4

to Shakib, FOUR, width on offer outside off. Shakib waits and cuts past short third man. Plays it ever so late to find the gap through that region

OT

to Mosaddek, 1 run, throws it full outside off. Mosaddek pushes to cover and sets off for a run

OT

to Mosaddek, 2 runs, fifty on debut for Mosaddek, got a tossed up delivery and eased it to the right of sweeper cover

4

to Shakib, FOUR, muscled! Tossed up and Shakib cracks it back to the bowler, he got hands to it. But the ball was travelling and it raced away to the fence. 400 up for Bangladesh

4

Perera to Shakib, FOUR, his 5th Test hundred. Everyone in the Bangladesh dressing room and Mosaddek on ground celebrate more than him. While Shakib is just having a chat with his partner. As if it's no big deal. Wants to continue for sure. It was a slider down the leg-side and Shakib helped the sweep to the fine leg fence to get to the milestone

4

to Shakib, FOUR, he looks in complete control when he plays the sweep shot, even when it is on a full ball like this one, that was fetched from well outside off and sent through the gap at mid-wicket

W

to Shakib, out Caught by Chandimal!! Finally! Shakib's patience gives up. With minutes to go for tea, this was not the shot one would have played. But Shakib does things differently. Steps down and takes on. With mid-on in the ring, it was on. But he did not get the elevation, ended up hitting it in the lap of the man stationed there. Big relief for Sri Lanka. Shakib c Chandimal b 116(159) [4s-10]

4

to Mehedi Hasan, FOUR, loose delivery outside off. Mehedi Hasan waits and cuts off the back foot to the deep backward point fence. Gets off the mark as well

4

to Mehedi Hasan, FOUR, Mehedi Hasan's eyes lit up with this wide delivery outside off. Slashes hard at it and collects a boundary towards deep point

W

to Mehedi Hasan, out Lbw!! Given OUT LBW straightaway. Oh hang on!! Mehedi Hasan has asked for a review. Front foot looks fine and the third umpire asks for the ball tracking. Three reds on the screen and Mehedi Hasan has to make his walk back. It is his 999th scalp in first class cricket. Tosses it up on middle and gets it to spin across the right-hander. Mehedi gets squared up as he looks to defend. The ball beats the outside edge and thuds his back pad. Dead in front of off and middle. Mehedi Hasan lbw b 24(50) [4s-2]

W

to Mustafizur, out Lbw!! Didn't take him long to reach 1000 from 999. Took him just one ball. Pitches on the rough and spins into the left-hander. Mustafizur prods forward to defend. The ball beats the inside edge and pings him on the pad. Umpire S Ravi had no doubts in mind. Raises his finger in a flash, much to the delight of the Sri Lankans. Mustafizur didn't bother to review as it appeared to be so plumb in front. is on a Hat-trick. Mustafizur lbw b 0(1)

OT

Perera to Mosaddek, no run, driven down to mid-on

OT

Perera to Mosaddek, no run, Mosaddek has been given out on-field. Takes the review straightaway. Front foot is well inside the popping crease. HawkEye shows the wickets missing. What good review this from Bangladesh. Turns in and Mosaddek looks to play across the line. Misses and the ball pings him on the front pad. A loud shout from Perera and is given out by Aleem Dar. Gets it overturned with a review

4

Perera to Mosaddek, FOUR, goes over the top. The field is in for the final delivery and he sees the opportunity. Perera fires it in on middle, Mosaddek clears his front foot and lifts it over mid-on for a boundary

6

Perera to Mosaddek, SIX, huge! In the zone and he gets low on his knee to slog sweep it over the cow corner fence. Lands deep into the stands

W

to Mosaddek, out Stumped!! All over. Mosaddek runs out of patience. Was batting with the tail and trying to add as many runs as possible. Otherwise, he could have nudged around for a hundred for sure. Nonetheless a well played knock. Sees the flight and steps down to send it out of Colombo. The ball dips and turns away and Dickwella does the rest. Mosaddek st Dickwella b 75(155) [4s-7 6s-2]

4

Roy to Karunaratne, FOUR, streaky but Karunaratne won't mind as he gets off the mark. A good length delivery jags away just outside off, Karunaratne has a tentative prod, but made sure he played it with soft hands. So, the outside edge rolled along the ground in the gap between third slip and gully to the third man fence

W

to Karunaratne, out Caught by Mehedi Hasan!! Gone! Fizz gets the reward for some disciplined bowling. Brilliant stuff, again hurls it full and tempted Karunaratne after drawing him forward. The ball tails away late, Karunaratne didn't cover for the movement, his feet was nowhere close to the ball and his hands were eager to feel the ball. Feeds an outside edge which flew to gully, Mehedi takes it reverse-cupped in front of his face. Smart catch, must say as the ball was travelling. Karunaratne c Mehedi Hasan b 7(32) [4s-1]

4

Hasan to Kusal Mendis, FOUR, what a shot. Sees the ball tossed up above his eyeline, Mendis goes low and slog-sweeps it over mid-wicket

4

to Tharanga, FOUR, doesn't miss out this time. Smidgen short and wide of off, Tharanga reaches out and spanks it through extra cover

OT

to Tharanga, no run, Tharanga has been given OUT lbw but he reviews straightaway. Fair delivery. No bat involved. What's HawkEye saying? Pitched - in-line. Impact - Umpire's call and wickets - missing. Excellent review by Tharanga. Spearing in from a length, eludes Tharanga's defensive blade and strikes him on the pad - just above the knee role. The appeal lacked conviction but umpire S Ravi raised his finger in a flash. Tharanga reviewed and the decision came in favour of him

W

Hasan to Kusal Mendis, out Stumped!! Hasan strikes. A big wicket for Bangladesh. Brilliant ball from , saw the batsman step out, so he gives more air and gets the ball to dip in front of Mendis. He wasn't to the pitch and hence misses his prod. Rahim does the rest behind the stumps. Bangladesh are over the moon. Perhaps, he was playing for the turn and there wasn't any. Kusal Mendis st Rahim b Hasan 5(6) [4s-1]

4

Roy to Chandimal, FOUR, and now when Roy has come close to the batsman, he is too full. Chandimal, thus, has it easy in the drive as he caresses it through covers

W

Hasan to Tharanga, out Caught by Soumya Sarkar!! What a ball. Loops on off, inviting Tharanga to come forward. The latter was not looking to drive, just a mere push - a defensive one. But could have done better by keeping his hands soft. Did not and the ball turned away to take a decent edge. Carried low to the fielder but carried and that is what matters. Hasan is having a field day so far. Tharanga c Soumya Sarkar b Hasan 11(40) [4s-1]

4

Islam o Chandimal, FOUR, in he air off he op edge as Chandimal ries he sweep. Forunaely for him, goes over he keeper and races away o he fine leg fence

4

Hasan to Chandimal, FOUR, once again Chandimal gets too low and across and that helps him fetch the sweep from outside off, sends down to the fine leg fence

4

Hasan to Gunaratne, FOUR, well bowled but equally well played. Sees a flighted delivery outside off and cracks the drive through cover

W

Roy to Gunaratne, out Lbw!! What a move this turned out to be. To get Roy into the attack before the lunch. He has caught Gunaratne in front. Check for the no-ball and it is fine. Fuller ball that veers in. Gunaratne falls over on the flick and misses by some margin. The ball, though, hits his front pad. A big appeal is then acknowledged by Mr Dar. Gunaratne lbw b Roy 13(39) [4s-1]

4

to de Silva, FOUR, just about clears the infield and rolls over the long-on fence. de Silva comes down the track and chips it off the toe end of the bat. Just over the leaping mid-on fielder for a boundary

4

Roy to Chandimal, leg byes, FOUR, short ball. Chandimal tries to duck but the ball brushes his helmet and deflects over the keeper's head. Free runs for the Lankans

4

to de Silva, FOUR, full on off and look at de Silva; he has played a pristine straight drive. Presents the full face of the bat and beats the bowler in his followthrough

OT

to Chandimal, no run. Reviewed! Caught at slip. Chandimal is the man in question. It has hit his front pad before going to the slip but the question is did it brush some part of the bat as well? was very confident in the appeal. The on-field call is out, remember. But had made it clear that he was going to refer it if the decision did not go in his favour. Tough call that. Is there enough to overturn the on-field call? Kohli's lbw call in the recently concluded Test in Bangalore could not be overturned due to lack of evidence. So no bat for sure, and it is sliding down as well. Not Out! The decision has been overturned. Coming to the ball, Chandimal pressed forward to defend. The ball brushed his pad and carried to the slip fielder. He was given caught but replays made it clear that the ball did not touch any part of his bat

4

to de Silva, FOUR, nicely done by de Silva. Judged the length well and slipped back to tuck through mid-wicket

4

Hasan to de Silva, FOUR, surprise surprise. de Silva gets out the reverse sweep and connects it perfectly. Hits it wide of the diving slip fielder and the ball races down to third man fence

4

to de Silva, FOUR, short delivery down the leg, de Silva takes it on and pulls it off the top edge down to fine leg. Races away fine from the fielder in the deep

OT

to Chandimal, 2 runs, tucked to fine leg and gets to a fifty. Continues from where he left in the previous game. A customary raise of the bat to the crowd to soak in the applause. de Silva gives him a pat on the back

W

Islam o de Silva, ou Bowled!! aijul Islam has broken his parnership. de Silva depars afer geing a sar. I was pushed hrough on middle, de Silva read he line wrong and goes on he back foo o pull. he ball skids on he surface and shaers he middle sump before de Silva could ge ino posiion. de Silva b Islam 34(54) [4s-5]

4

Hasan to Dickwella, FOUR, Hasan starts his new spell with a poor delivery. Short and wide outside off, Dickwella had all the time in the world to pick the spot on the off-side. Goes for the cut and helps himself with a boundary

OT

Hasan to Dickwella, no run, Bangladesh have taken the review for LBW! Given notout on field. Front foot looks fine and there is no bat involved. Pitches in line, impact is umpire's call and wickets missing. So S Ravi can stay with his decision. Bangladesh have lost a review. Hasan comes from round the wicket and angles it on the pads, Dickwella goes for the sweep and misses. The ball was going down leg with the angle

4

Roy to Dickwella, FOUR, sublime timing from Dickwella. Just stands tall and extends his hands into a firm push, such is the balance and timing that it races away to the fence in a jiffy

4

Roy to Dickwella, no ball, FOUR, short and offers ample width, Dickwella pays his thanks with a rasping punch through point. Gets it where he intended and collects a boundary. Roy has overstepped as well

4

Roy to Dickwella, FOUR, Roy's radar goes a bit wonky. Spills it on the pads, Dickwella gets behind the line and tickles it fine

4

Roy to Chandimal, FOUR, that's bread and butter for Chandimal. A juicy half-volley on the pads, Chandimal gets across and whips it firmly past mid-wicket

W

to Dickwella, out Bowled!! Dickwella has sabotaged his wicket. Beautifully bowled, the 6-3 field has done the trick for Bangladesh. Dickwella tried to be ambitious and brought out his pet shot - the reverse sweep. Not the ideal shot to play to a very full ball, misjudges it completely and has to fetch it from outside leg. Misses it and the ball sneaks under his willow to crash the leg-stump. Dickwella b 34(37) [4s-4]

6

Islam o Dilruwan Perera, SIX, Perera breaks he shackles. Pus on he dancing shoes, mees he pich and lifs i sraigh down he ground for a maximum. A mighy blow!

W

to Dilruwan Perera, out Caught by Soumya Sarkar!! Another one bites the dust. Rahman comes back and provides the breakthrough in his new spell. The sucker ball, wooes Perera into a drive with a full ball outside off, Perera took the bait and goes hard on it. Induces an edge that went through to first slip, Sarkar won't drop those. Could've easily left it alone but he had other ideas. Rahman is delighted. Dilruwan Perera c Soumya Sarkar b 9(20) [6s-1]

OT

to Herath, no run, Herath reviews. Adjudged OUT lbw on-field. Fair delivery. Ooops! I can spot an inside edge there. Yes, Erasmus confirms that the ball pinged his glove and then deflected onto his pad. Herath survives. A full ball on the stumps, Herath goes low to play the reverse sweep and drags it off his glove and then onto his pad. appealed and Dar raised his finger. However, DRS came to the rescue of Herath and the on-field call was overturned

4

to Herath, FOUR, lucky runs for Herath. A well directed yorker from Rahman. Herath gets his bat down just in time o squirt an inside edge down to fine leg. Beats fine leg fence and crashes into the fence

4

Islam o Herah, FOUR, op sho from he skipper. Sinks low and connecs he sweep righ of he middle of he blade. he fielder in he deep had no chance of sopping ha as i raced away in a hurry

W

to Herath, out Caught by Soumya Sarkar!! A juggler would be proud of Sarkar. Took his time but finally manages to cling on to the edge at slip. Herath was drawn into the drive and went hard at this one, the ball left him and took a thick edge. Was a bit high - near the chest area - to cup that. But Soumya did well to hand Bangladesh their first wicket of the day. Herath c Soumya Sarkar b 25(91) [4s-2]

4

Roy to Chandimal, FOUR, Chandimal moves closer to his hundred. Short ball that does not rise enough to trouble Chandimal. He goes back and pulls through square leg

4

to Chandimal, FOUR, he is in 90s. But he is working with the tail and his team needs runs. So what does he do? He goes for a high risk reverse sweep and gets it past the man at backward point to move to 99

OT

Islam o Chandimal, 1 run, he helme is off. His 8h es hundred. 4h agains Bangladesh. Drives hrough cover o ge o he milesone. Wha an innings his has been. Go his eam ou of he rouble iniially and now looks se o ake hem o a posiion of srengh

4

to Chandimal, FOUR, absolutely smacked it. Was too full on the stumps and Chandimal cracked it past the man at mid-on. Went to the fence in no time

6

to Chandimal, SIX, another delivery on the pads, Chandimal flicks it on its way. The ball lands into the deep square leg stands for a huge six

4

Hasan to Chandimal, FOUR, low full toss outside off, Chandimal gets low and drives it wide of mid-off for a boundary. Bangladesh won't mind that as they get to bowl to Lakmal the next over

4

to Chandimal, FOUR, rank long hop from . Chandimal goes full monty and hits it over the infield. Collects a boundary

4

Hasan to Chandimal, FOUR, more air this time and Chandimal skips down the track in a flash. Gets under the ball and thumps it over the bowlers head for a one bounce boundary

W

Hasan to Chandimal, out Caught by Mosaddek!! Finally Bangladesh break this 55-run stand. Top knock from Chandimal comes to an end. Hasan tosses it up on middle and leg, Chandimal fails to get elevation on the slog sweep and get it off the toe end of the bat straight to mid-wicket.
