36.2 OUT! Caught (Sub). Shakib Al Hasan to Amila Aponso. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on. nnBangladesh have comprehensively beaten Sri Lanka in the opening match of the Asia Cup in Dubai. The men in green had to do it the hard way, however, after losing two wickets in the first over of the match and then shortly afterwards seeing Tamim Iqbal suffer a broken hand. That meant they were effectively three wickets down with just two runs on the board, as Lasith Malinga returned to international cricket with a bang. Mushfiqur Rahim and Mohammad Mithun rescued things for the Tigers in a swashbuckling partnership of 131 runs, with the former going on to score a sensational career best 144. Sri Lankas sloppy catching and fielding quickly translated into lazy batting, with the top order collapsing in a heap to some questionable strokeplay. When Angelo Mathews was pinned LBW the result was never in doubt, although Sri Lankas lower order added a few lusty blows to delay the inevitable. Well be back tomorrow when Pakistan take on Hong Kong.

35.1 OUT! Stumped. Mosaddek Hossain to Dilruwan Perera. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track pushing, missed to wicketkeeper, by Das. Easy as you like, Dilruwan stuck in the middle of the pitch and can only turn in time to see Liton whip the bails off. Mosaddek gets himself a wicket as Bangladesh close in on the win.

Lakmal has done his best to add a bit of respectability to the total but he was never going to be able to get Sri Lanka close. The Fizz returns to the attack to clean him up, crashing into off stump via the inside edge.

21.1 SIX! Mehedi Hasan to Suranga Lakmal. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Given plenty of flight and Lakmal cant resist a full swing of the willow. He has nothing to lose in this situation and manages to just clear the fence by a few inches.
Over 20. 2 runs. Bowler: Rubel Hossain. Sri Lanka: 7-71(rr 3.55)

19.5 OUT! Caught. Mehedi Hasan to Thisara Perera. Off break length ball, outside off stump backing away slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to gully, by Hossain. Thisara aims an agricultural heave over the legside but the ball softly skews to the man running in from point. Another terrible shot, another batsman has to trudge off. This time there is a loud call by someone in the field and the catch is safely taken. Bangladesh are charging towards a massive victory.
19.4 APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Mehedi Hasan to Thisara Perera. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to cover for no runs, fielded by Mortaza, appeal made for L.B.W. This is perhaps the worst review in the history of international cricket. It comes straight off the bat and goes to cover, and for some reason the bowler thinks it is LBW. The umpire just laughs, what a waste.
19.3 Mehedi Hasan to Thisara Perera. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Das.
19.2 Mehedi Hasan to Dilruwan Perera. Off break length ball, off stump down the track working, hit pad to leg gully for 1 run, fielded by Das.

18.6 FOUR! Rubel Hossain to Thisara Perera. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Sri Lanka need plenty of this if they are going to have any chance in this match. Thisara is capable of special things with the bat on his day, perhaps this is a sign of things to come.
18.5 Rubel Hossain to Thisara Perera. Length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Mortaza.
18.4 Rubel Hossain to Dilruwan Perera. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to third man for 1 run.
18.3 Rubel Hossain to Dilruwan Perera. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly point for no runs.
18.2 OUT! L.B.W. Rubel Hossain to Angelo Mathews. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to. Rubel strikes with just his second ball, and its the massive wicket of Mathews. Sri Lanka are surely out of this contest now with Bangladesh on fire in Dubai. Rubel is bang on the money with pace and hostility, pinning the Sri Lankan skipper on the back foot as the ball cannons into his pad.
18.1 Rubel Hossain to Thisara Perera. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Mahmudullah.

17.2 Mehedi Hasan to Angelo Mathews. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Saikat.
17.1 OUT! Run Out. Mehedi Hasan to Angelo Mathews. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track working, to short mid wicket, fielded by Al Hasan, by Miraz. Calamity, Sri Lanka arent doing themselves any favours here. This is a disaster for the men in blue and Mathews has to take the blame for this one. He sets off for a non-existent single and then changes his mind, leaving Shanaka stranded in the middle of the pitch. Shakib relays the ball back to the bowler, who does well to collect and keep his cool as he dislodges the bails. Sri Lanka sinking quickly in this chase.
Over 16. 2 runs. Bowler: Shakib Al Hasan. Sri Lanka: 4-60(rr 3.75)
16.6 Shakib Al Hasan to Angelo Mathews. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Hossain. Time for drinks in Dubai. Sri Lanka are really struggling in this chase, but they will always have a chance while Mathews is out there. Bangladesh have started impressively with the ball.
16.5 Shakib Al Hasan to Angelo Mathews. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to point for no runs.
16.4 Shakib Al Hasan to Dasun Shanaka. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep point for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

15.3 Mehedi Hasan to Dasun Shanaka. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Al Hasan.
15.2 Mehedi Hasan to Dasun Shanaka. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to point for no runs. Oh my word, that is an atrocious piece of fielding by the sub. The ball hangs in the air for an age, he has plenty of time to settle underneath it but he ends up letting it hit the floor. Some miscommunication has gone on somewhere there. The fielding today has been pretty terrible. Sri Lanka get away with one.
15.1 Mehedi Hasan to Angelo Mathews. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Mahmudullah.

10.2 OUT! L.B.W. Mehedi Hasan to Kusal Perera. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to. The finger is raised, not what Sri Lanka needed as they lose their fourth wicket before the end of the powerplay. Kusal Perera had just been bogged down for a while and now he misses a straight one, a strange innings from him. Mehedi fired it in with a round-arm action and the umpire had no doubt it was smashing into middle stump. Replays suggest Sri Lanka are a bit unlucky there, it seems there was a little inside edge.

5.3 OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Mashrafe Mortaza to Dhananjaya de Silva. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. Another one, Mashrafe has two wickets in four balls to leave Sri Lanka in tatters. Dhananjaya looks sheepish as he signals for the review, he is clearly not confident at all but takes a punt anyway. Replays show why, he is absolutely stone dead plumb in front. Mashrafe gets rewarded for another delivery that nips off the surface, the floodlights just bringing a bit of life to the white ball.
5.2 Mashrafe Mortaza to Dhananjaya de Silva. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Saikat.

4.3 FOUR! Mustafizur Rahman to Kusal Perera. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Whipped with insouciance, that is Kusal Perera at his best. He loves to take advantage of the powerplay.
4.2 Mustafizur Rahman to Kusal Perera. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Al Hasan.

Over 3. Power Play Fielding. 6 runs. Bowler: Mashrafe Mortaza. Sri Lanka: 2-28(rr 9.33)
3.6 OUT! Bowled. Mashrafe Mortaza to Upul Tharanga. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, inside edge to. Chopped on, what a response by the skipper. Mashrafe finds the perfect line to the left-hander, cramping him for room with the ball coming back in. Tharanga wanted to jab it down to third man for a single but it came off the inside edge and onto the sticks. Delight for the men in green, they are well on top now.
3.5 Mashrafe Mortaza to Upul Tharanga. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid on for no runs.
3.4 FOUR! Mashrafe Mortaza to Upul Tharanga. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. In the previous over there was too much width, now Mortaza over-corrects and strays onto the pads. Tharanga just needs to get a bit of willow on it and the ball zips away.
3.3 APPEAL! Mashrafe Mortaza to Kusal Perera. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to extra cover for 1 run, direct hit by Mahmudullah, appeal made for Run Out.

Over 2. Power Play Fielding. 9 runs. Bowler: Mustafizur Rahman. Sri Lanka: 1-22(rr 11.00)
2.6 OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Mustafizur Rahman to Kusal Mendis. In-swinging half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, hit pad to short leg. That looks to be a decent shout but the umpire doesnt think so. It was very full from Mustafizur with the right-hander whipping across it, so Mathews signals for a review. The only question is where the ball has pitched, and ball tracking says it was bang on leg stump. This will be overturned, Mendis departs first ball.
2.5 Mustafizur Rahman to Upul Tharanga. Short, outside off stump on the back foot dropped, to short leg for 1 run, fielded by Rahman.
2.4 FOUR! Mustafizur Rahman to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs. Slashed over the covers, this is extraordinary batting to get Sri Lanka off to a flier.
2.3 FOUR! Mustafizur Rahman to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Tharanga isnt going to hang around in this chase. He has silenced the Bangladesh support with an array of early boundaries.
2.2 Mustafizur Rahman to Upul Tharanga. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Saikat.
2.1 NEW BALL. Mustafizur Rahman to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Al Hasan.

1.5 Mashrafe Mortaza to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Saikat.
1.4 FOUR! Mashrafe Mortaza to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. You cant bowl there to most left-handers, and definitely not Tharanga. He loves width, he loves the cut shot, its four more to Sri Lanka.
1.3 Mashrafe Mortaza to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep backward point for 2 runs, fielded by Hossain.
1.2 SIX! Mashrafe Mortaza to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. What a way to get off the mark, Tharanga just leans into this and sends it rocketing away. Graceful destruction from the left-hander.
NEW BALL. Mashrafe Mortaza to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Mahmudullah.
1.1 Start of Sri Lanka Innings.
Over 50. 12 runs. Bowler: Thisara Perera. Bangladesh: 10-261(rr 5.22)
50.3 OUT! Caught. Thisara Perera to Mushfiqur Rahim. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Mendis. Taken in the deep, a fantastic grab diving forward to finish off the innings. Mushfiqur gets a standing ovation as he leaves the field, thoroughly deserved for his best ODI innings. nn That was a really interesting innings, Bangladesh could have been dead and buried early on if Sri Lanka couldve held their catches. Lasith Malinga struck twice in the first over, and then Tamim Iqbal broke his wrist and had to retire hurt. But Bangladesh built momentum first through Mohammad Mithun, and then through the majestic Mushfiqur Rahim, who struck a career best 144. No other batsman could really get going, but still the men in green were able to post an impressive total that will be difficult for Sri Lanka to chase.
50.2 SIX! Thisara Perera to Mushfiqur Rahim. Length ball, off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. Waits for this deep in the crease and then swings the kitchen sink at it. The ball disappears into the night sky for yet another maximum.
50.1 SIX! Thisara Perera to Mushfiqur Rahim. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep extra cover for 6 runs. Clears the front foot and then hammers this over extra cover. Unbelievable hitting from the little man.

49.1 FOUR! Dasun Shanaka to Mushfiqur Rahim. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. In the slot and given the punishment it deserves. Mushfiqur is struggling with fatigue but hes still able to find the ropes with ease.
Over 48. 15 runs. Bowler: Thisara Perera. Bangladesh: 9-244(rr 5.08)
48.6 Thisara Perera to Mushfiqur Rahim. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Tharanga.
48.5 SIX! Thisara Perera to Mushfiqur Rahim. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Bludgeoned into the stands, the crowd goes absolutely wild as Mushfiqur starts to kick things into fifth gear.
48.4 FOUR! Thisara Perera to Mushfiqur Rahim. Half volley, off stump moves in front Scoop, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. Audacious batting, the revere-scoop flies past the keeper and away for four more valuable runs.

48.2 FOUR! Thisara Perera to Mushfiqur Rahim. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Clobbered over the bowlers head, Bangladesh are charging towards a decent total now.

Over 47. 7 runs. Bowler: Suranga Lakmal. Bangladesh: 9-229(rr 4.87)
47.6 Suranga Lakmal to Tamim Iqbal. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, to square leg for no runs, fielded by de Silva.
47.5 OUT! Run Out. Suranga Lakmal to Mustafizur Rahman. Full toss, to leg on the front foot driving, to silly mid off, fielded by Mendis, by Perera. An awful mix up, Mustafizur thinks there is an easy single but he is completely wrong. By the time he realises hes stranded in the middle of the pitch so that will be that. Oh wait, this is amazing. Tamim is coming out to bat with his broken wrist.
47.4 FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Mustafizur Rahman. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Thats an ugly hack but it does the job, the crowd enjoyed that one.

Over 44. 7 runs. Bowler: Suranga Lakmal. Bangladesh: 8-210(rr 4.77)
44.6 Suranga Lakmal to Mustafizur Rahman. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.

44.3 FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Slightly too straight and Mushfiqur tickles it fine. Deafening roars come from the crowd to greet the arrival of the landmark. Mushfiqur looks to the sky in relief, he didnt think he was going to get there a moment ago when there was a review. Fantastic knock, under real pressure he has held Bangladesh together.
44.2 Suranga Lakmal to Mustafizur Rahman. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Aponso.
44.1 Suranga Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim. Half volley, off stump on the front foot working, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

43.5 APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Dhananjaya de Silva to Mustafizur Rahman. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Huge shout, Sri Lanka are convinced but the umpire doesnt think so. It was speared in with a round-arm action, and ultimately that wouldve taken it down the legside with not much turn on offer. Mustafizur survives, much to the delight of Mushfiqur.
43.4 OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Dhananjaya de Silva to Rubel Hossain. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot flick, hit pad to. This time the review works against Rubel. The only question is whether this pitched in line with the leg stump as Dhananjaya is coming around the wicket. The umpire didnt think so but after a look at ball tracking Rubel is plumb. Mushfiqur looks distraught.
43.3 Dhananjaya de Silva to Rubel Hossain. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by de Silva.

42.3 APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Lasith Malinga to Rubel Hossain. Yorker, to leg on the front foot defending, inside edge to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Given, Malinga has five and Bangladesh are on the verge of being bowled out. Or are they? Wait a moment, we have a review. It seems that Rubel was happy to accept the decision and walk off but a furious Mushfiqur has intervened. You can see why he is so angry as well, this clearly hits the inside edge. Bizarre, but Rubel survives in the end.
42.2 Lasith Malinga to Rubel Hossain. Slower ball full toss, middle stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Shanaka.
42.1 Lasith Malinga to Rubel Hossain. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

34.4 OUT! Caught & Bowled. Suranga Lakmal to Mehedi Hasan. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed back to bowler, fielded by Lakmal. What a grab, amazing reflexes by Lakmal to gobble this up low in his follow-through. Mushfiqur can only watch on as he loses yet another partner to an aggressive stroke. Mehedi popped this back, unable to get the desired timing, and it was beautifully clutched at ankle height. Sri Lanka keep chipping away.

31.5 FOUR! Amila Aponso to Mushfiqur Rahim. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

28.6 OUT! Caught. Lasith Malinga to Mosaddek Hossain. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Perera. Malinga too hot to handle, the big man has been sensational today. Four wickets to his name after six superb overs. Mossadek looks to take on the short ball but its onto him quicker than expected, so it balloons off the glove providing a simple chance. Bangladesh are losing their way now after the big partnership earlier. Mushfiqur is still there though, he will hold the key from here.

27.2 OUT! Caught. Amila Aponso to Mahmudullah. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot slog sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by de Silva. Thats a terrible stroke, a gift of a wicket for Sri Lanka. Mahmudullah wanted to make an early statement but its rash in the circumstances, and the ball goes straight up. Bangladesh have lost a couple quickly and now this match is right back in the balance.
27.1 Amila Aponso to Mahmudullah. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by de Silva.

26.3 OUT! Caught. Lasith Malinga to Mohammad Mithun. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Perera. Malinga strikes, the dangerous Mithun has to trudge off after trying to take on the legendary quick. After going up through the gears, Mithun was keen to carry on the aggressive approach but it was always going to be tough against Malinga. This hangs in the air for a lifetime before settling in the keepers gloves safely to end that majestic partnership.
26.2 Lasith Malinga to Mohammad Mithun. Length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Perera.
26.1 Lasith Malinga to Mohammad Mithun. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to gully for no runs, run save by de Silva.

15.6 FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Mohammad Mithun. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Crunched into the gap, three boundaries in a row and now Bangladesh have all the momentum.
15.5 FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Mohammad Mithun. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Delightfully sliced behind square - first power and now touch from Mithun.

14.6 Thisara Perera to Mushfiqur Rahim. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep backward point for 2 runs, fielded by Malinga. Time for drinks after a fascinating start to this match. Sri Lanka have been on top thanks to a devastating opening spell by Lasith Malinga, but it could have been so much better if their fielding was up to scratch. Both Mushfiqur and Mithun have been dropped as they seek to rebuild for Bangladesh.

13.5 FOUR! Amila Aponso to Mohammad Mithun. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Expertly improvised, Bangladesh look like they want to be very positive against Aponso. Its working very well so far.

Over 11. 12 runs. Bowler: Amila Aponso. Bangladesh: 2-36(rr 3.27)
11.6 SIX! Amila Aponso to Mohammad Mithun. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Hit hard and flat, all the way for a maximum. That was a dangerous stroke with a fielder lurking on the long off fence, but he backed himself to clear the man and did so with room to spare.
11.5 Amila Aponso to Mohammad Mithun. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Aponso.
11.4 Amila Aponso to Mushfiqur Rahim. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to cover for 1 run, fielded by de Silva.
11.3 FOUR! Amila Aponso to Mushfiqur Rahim. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

10.2 Thisara Perera to Mushfiqur Rahim. Half volley, to leg on the front foot working, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to square leg for no runs, dropped catch by Perera. Another chance goes begging, this is pretty shoddy by Sri Lanka. Mushfiqur tamely chips the ball to square leg where a regulation catch is inexplicably spilled. Bangladesh have been let off the hook.
10.1 Thisara Perera to Mushfiqur Rahim. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Lakmal.

8.6 FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Its taken some time but finally we have the first boundary of Asia Cup 2018. There has been nothing loose at all in this opening spell until now, Lakmal just drifting a tiny bit too straight and Mushfiqur able to whip it into the gap. Huge cheers from the crowd, plenty of Bangladesh support there today.

5.6 No ball Lasith Malinga to Mohammad Mithun. Slower ball beamer, middle stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Aponso. Another drop, this time at fine leg. But the umpire has called this a no-ball for height, it wouldnt have counted. Drama in Dubai.

5.3 Lasith Malinga to Mohammad Mithun. Out-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to mid on for no runs, dropped catch by Mathews. Spilled by the skipper, thats a big let off for Mithun. He was looking to turn the ball square but it popped up off the leading edge and Mathews made a hash of it diving forward. That should have been a third wicket for Malinga.

2.6 Suranga Lakmal to Tamim Iqbal. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, Gloved to square leg for no runs, fielded by de Silva. Tamim is really struggling after that blow to the hand. Its hit him in an awkward part of the glove where there isnt much protection. Hes going to have to go off and have the physio take a proper look at it. Disaster for Bangladesh.
2.5 Suranga Lakmal to Mushfiqur Rahim. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Malinga.

1.6 OUT! Bowled. Lasith Malinga to Shakib Al Hasan. In-swinging half volley, off stump no foot movement flick, missed to. Timber, Malinga you absolute legend. He is on fire in Dubai to light up the Asia Cup in its very first over. This is full, fast and swinging to leave Shakib completely clueless with his feet stuck in the crease. The ball crashes into off and middle stump to spark wild celebrations. What an amazing start to this tournament.
1.5 OUT! Caught. Lasith Malinga to Liton Das. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by Mendis. Malinga is back with a bang. Its almost like hes never been away. This is a beauty, squaring up the right-hander by getting the ball to shape nicely and kissing the edge. Mendis comfortably scoops it at first slip and Sri Lanka have a big early breakthrough to put the men in green under pressure.
Lasith Malinga to Liton Das. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Malinga.
