Angelo Mathews

They [Dilshan and Sangakkara] were brilliant, they batted us through and Dilshan was amazing. It was a calculated effort and it was a clinical performance. I won't say clinical because we were slightly sloppy on the field, we could have done better. But once we got the runs bowlers got to bowl freely. It's important to peak at the right time and when it comes to the QFs, we'll take it one match at a time.


Mashrafe Mortaza

Fielding cost us but our bowlers were up to the mark and next match we will try to come up with good things. Dilshan and Sangakkara are great players, they showed us today. Without a win you can't think anything and I hope this is our worst game in the tourname

Tillakaratne Dilshan

Really happy today because in last game I got out on first ball. I'm enjoying every single moment in the middle and try to enjoy every ball there with the youngsters. Sanga is a great man, no doubt. With him I've had more than 14-15 hundred partnerships.

With him I discussed how to build the partnership and the Powerplay. I also dropped one catch and it's part of the game, but I'm very happy how we came back and Malinga bowled well. We bowled and fielded well.


Bangladesh all out for 240 in 47 overs. Sri Lanka win 92 runs.


Over 47: Bangladesh 240 for 10: Rubel Hossain 0 (5)

Malinga is bowling his ninth over and starts with a dot ball. Sabbit flicks toward deep mid wicket and gets a couple. He moves to 49. A short pitch delivery from Malinga and Sabbir places it towards fine leg for a boundary. That brings his 50.

Another short pitch delivery and this time it outside off stump. Sabbir gives a simple to Sangakkara and that is the end of his innings. Sri Lanka are one wicket away from a victory. Taskin Ahmed is the new man in the middle and he gets out for a golden duck.

That's the end of the match as Sri Lanka win by 93 runs.


WICKET...!!! Sabbir Rahman 53 (63) c Sangakkara b Malinga


Bangladesh are looking to play full 50 overs in order to reduce the impact on the net run rate, which could decide a team's fate in making it to the next round of the World Cup.


Over 46: Bangladesh 234 for 8: Rubel Hossain 0 (5), Sabbir Rahman 46 (55)

Over 45: Bangladesh 233 for 8: Rubel Hossain 0 (1), Sabbir Rahman 46 (55)

Mathews continues with six overs left in the match. Sabbir wants a single, but stopped by a fielder. It is followed by another dot ball. The game is more or less won by Sri Lanka and it's just mere formalities now.

Sri Lanka players have realised it and so does Bangladesh batsmen in the middle. Also the respective fans in the stadium know the outcome of this game. Only a miracle can change it.

Sabbir clear the mid off fielder as the ball races towards for four runs. He then places to third man and takes a single to finish the over.


Over 44: Bangladesh 228 for 8: Rubel Hossain 0 (1), Sabbir Rahman 41 (49)

The square leg umpire refers it upstairs and the third umpire after reviewing with the help of replays suggests it's not out. Sabbir then takes a quick single. Dilshan bowls another wide, this time it is way towards second leg slip.

Mortaza comes out and misses the ball, Sangakkara dismantles the bails even before Mortaza can keep make the ground. Taskin Ahmed is the new man in the middle and he finishes the over with a dot ball.

Lakmal continues even after the powerplay. Mushfiqur just flicks towards the fine third man for a boundary. He tries to play going away from the wicket and misses the ball, as the ball hits the stumps. That's the end of Mushfiqur.

Mashrafe Mortaza replaces Mushfiqur and gets off the mark with a single. Sabbir smashes towards deep midwicket and gets four runs as he beats the fielder comfortably. He then places towards third man and the fielder had to dive to save the ball going towards the boundary. Sabbir gets two more runs.
