Commentary (Sri Lanka innings)

Sri Lanka will be a disappointed lot after posting such a good total on the board. Bangladesh, on the other hand, will be the happier lot as one thing is certain that they cannot lose the series from here. Rain has played spoilsport for the hosts as they had a good chance of winning it. We head to Colombo from here for the final match of the 3-match ODI series. It takes place on 1st April at 0930 local (0400 GMT). Until then, goodbye and take care. Cheers!

Update 2045 local - The worst we feared has happened and the rain does not seem to be stopping. The umpires walk out on the ground and sees water all around. Unfortunately, THE MATCH HAS BEEN CALLED OFF. It is never a good thing for anyone who loves cricket.

Update 1955 local - The rain has gotten heavier now and it's not a pretty sight. The overs will start getting docked from now. Let's hope something good happens and that too soon. Stay tuned for further updates.

Update 1855 local - Well, some bad new for you folks. It has started to rain and the covers have been brought on. The umpire is seen walking out with his umbrella as the groundsmen are going about their business. And it seems it's coming down at a steady rate too. We're in for a delay. Stay tuned for further updates.

A flurry of wickets in the end will make the Bangladeshis happy and they will be happy to carry the momentum into the chase. Taskin Ahmed got a hat-trick at the fag end of the innings and ended with figures of 8.5-0-47-4. The skipper Mashrafe Mortaza also bowled well but was unlucky to only get one wicket to his name. All the other bowlers got hammered all round the park. With a big target set, Bangladesh will want to start off really well with the bat to chase it down. Join us for the chase in a while.

Kusal Mendis looked dangerous once he crossed the 50-run mark as he took his game to a different level altogether with Dinesh Chandimal at the other end ticking along. Milinda Siriwardana and Asela Gunaratne, with their cameos ensured that the hosts cross the 300-run mark. They have posted a really good total on the board and the home side will want its bowlers to win the game now.

A terrific comeback by Bangladesh at the death but Sri Lanka have still posted a good total on the board. They had an aggressive approach from the start when Gunathilaka kicked things off. He soon departed but a vital 111-run partnership between Upul Tharanga and Kusal Mendis laid the platform for the hosts. The former departed soon after his fifty but the latter kept marching on and registered his maiden ODI hundred.

49.5 T Ahmed to N Pradeep, OUT! YES, YES! Taskin gets the hat-trick. Yorker, right on the money. Pradeep cannot get his bat down in time and the ball smashes into the timber. A brilliant delivery to end the innings. SRI LANKA ARE BOWLED OUT FOR 311! 311/10

Nuwan Pradeep is the next man in. Taskin Ahmed is on a hat-trick. Can he strike?

49.4 T Ahmed to S Lakmal, OUT! Full toss does the trick! In the line of the stumps, Lakmal swats it away towards mid-wicket but Mustafizur Rahman dives to his right and takes a stunning catch. 311/9

Suranga Lakmal is the next man in.

49.3 T Ahmed to A Gunaratne, OUT! Ahmed gets his man! Full and wide outside off, Gunaratne tries to go over the mid off fielder. Fails to get the elevation as he does not connect well. The ball goes straight to the fielder at mid off. Sarkar takes an easy catch and Gunaratne's cameo comes to an end. 311/8

Some comic relief amidst all the tension in the middle. There is a slight delay in play as a stray dog has come on to the field. Mehedi Hasan is seen trying to shoo it off with his cap by chasing it around.

49.2 T Ahmed to A Gunaratne, FOUR! Good shot! Full toss on the pads, Gunaratne smacks it through the square leg region for a boundary. 311/7

49.1 T Ahmed to N Kulasekara, Driven towards the mid off region. They pick up a single. 307/7

Nuwan Kulasekara is the new man in for SL.

48.2 M Rahman to D Perera, OUT! Rahim is brilliant again behind the stumps! Fuller delivery way outside off, Perera tries to play a premeditated paddle shot but fails to make contact. The ball goes towards Rahim and the batsman is totally unaware where the ball is. Rahim hurls a throw at the striker's end seeing Dilruwan take off for the run and he hits. The umpire has no problem to rule that out. Even if he had missed, Mustafizur would have reached the stumps and took the bails off if needed. 300/7

Mustafizur Rahman is back.

Taskin Ahmed to bowl again now.

46.6 M Mortaza to A Gunaratne, SIX! Good shot! Asela should thank the fielder there in the deep for not knowing where the boundary is. Full length delivery into the body, Asela slogs it over the mid-wicket region for a biggie. Had the fielder been at the edge of the rope, it would have been an easy catch. 287/6

The ball rolls away towards the keeper after hitting his pads. The batsman goes for a run but the non-striker sends him back. Rahim sees Perera halfway down the track and affects a run out at the striker's end. The square leg umpire raises his finger up as Thisara Perera was not even in the frame. 280/6

46.3 M Mortaza to T Perera, FOUR! Brilliant timing! Angling across off, Perera shuffles across and whips it through the mid-wicket region. The fielder in the deep tries to cut it off with a dive, gets his hands to it but fails to keep it from crossing the rope. 280/5

Thisara Perera walks into the middle next to bat.

45.4 M Hasan to M Siriwardana, OUT! Siriwardana departs! Floated around off, Milinda Siriwardana stays in his crease and goes for a slog sweep. He fails to make contact there and the ball smashes into the timber. Siriwardana has to walk back. 271/5

44.5 M Mortaza to M Siriwardana, IN THE AIR... AND THAT'S DROPPED! It was a difficult chance but he'd be a little disappointed, especially as he did so well to get his hands to the ball. Back of a length on the stumps, Siriwardana backs away and gets a big top edge on his pull. It balloons towards mid-wicket where Mehedi Hasan runs in from the deep and dives forward, only to spill it in the end. Two runs are taken. 266/4

Mashrafe Mortaza says that he wanted to bat first as well. Feels that this might be the best Bangladeshi team for a while as they have players who have been playing for the last ten years and also have a good bunch of youngsters. Ends by saying that they would want to play the perfect match like they did in the last game.

Upul Tharnaga, who is playing in his 200th ODI for Sri Lanka, feels that it looks like a really good wicket. Says that the tinge of grass makes it look like a 270-280 run wicket. Adds that they need to focus on the game and give it their best.

Pitch Report - Russel Arnold doing the pitch report reckons that he expects some dew in the evening session. Says that it won't turn that much as the deck is quite hard. Feels that the toss won't have much of an effect on the game. Expects it to be a 270 wicket.

Hello and a warm welcome for the 2nd of the 3-match ODI series between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. After an emphatic victory from the visitors, they will be keen to carry on with the momentum and seal the deal today itself. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will want to bounce back and make things even as they have never lost an ODI series against Bangladesh till date. With so much at stake, we are certain of an exciting encounter. Stay tuned for the toss.

37.4 T Ahmed to K Mendis, OUT! Great awareness from Taskin Ahmed! Slower and fuller delivery around off, Mendis stays in his crease and smacks it back to the bowler. Ahmed just tries to get his hand to it but gets hit on the shoulder. The ball balloons high in the air after hitting the shoulder, Taskin searches for the ball and reacts well to go behind a couple of steps behind him to take a fine catch. Mendis' brilliant knock comes to an end. 216/4

36.4 M Rahman to D Chandimal, OUT! Rahman outfoxes Chandimal! Length delivery angling into the stumps, Chandimal shuffles way across and sits down to play a scoop on the leg side. He misses the ball completely and the players appeal. Chandimal goes for a leg bye and the umpire after thinking a lot rules it out. Strangely Mendis is quick to opt for the review from the non-striker's end. Replays show that there was no bat involved. Ball Tracker shows that the ball was pitched outside off, impact was in line and the ball was going on to hit the top of middle stump. So that gets three reds and the umpire's decision stands. Mustafizur strikes and Chandimal has to walk back to the hut. 212/3

Dinesh Chandimal has been given out for an lbw decision. The umpire took a lot of time to think about it and then raised his finger. Surprisingly, Kusal Mendis, seeing this, was quick to ask for the review. It's gone upstairs now...

33.5 M Mortaza to D Chandimal, Chandimal clips it through the square leg region for a single. 194/2

33.4 M Mortaza to D Chandimal, NOT OUT! Angling in from a length outside off, Chandimal prods forward and tries to defend it with the full face of the bat. He misses the ball completely and gets rapped on the pads. The players appeal and the umpire thinks a lot but says no. Mashrafe Mortaza is quite confident as he goes for a review after consulting Rahim. Replays show that there was no bat involved. Ball Tracker shows that the ball pitched outside off, impact was in line but the ball was just clipping the bails. Which means that the umpire's decision will stand. Chandimal is lucky and Bangladesh lose their review. 193/2
