Graeme Swann

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

On England's next game against Sri Lanka in Wellington on Sunday: "Sri Lanka have an incredible record against England in Sri Lanka - outside Sri Lanka, they don't travel particularly well. But after today, I'm rather concerned for England - Dilshan batted very well, Sangakkara's in great nick so I'm worried about how many runs Sri Lanka will get, and I'm worried England haven't adopted a more aggressive approach."

Captain's view

Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews: "Dilshan and Sangakkara were brilliant, they batted us through, took calculated risks and it was a great effort by the three batters. We were slightly sloppy in the field and could have done better, but once you've got 300 on the board your bowlers can take chances. We're all ready for the England game."

Captain's view

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza: "Our bowlers weren't up to the mark and hopefully in the next match we will improve. They [Sri Lanka batsmen Dilshan and Sangakkara] played well and showed their character today. I hope our next game will be our best in the tournament."

Graeme Swann

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"I was quite caught up in all the hype about the game - Bangladesh's record against Sri Lanka is poor but I thought they might do better. This game has followed the other two played at the MCG - teams batting first have piled on the runs and won by a country mile. When you're chasing 300, you either get very close or nowhere near, and when their only firecracker batsman Tamim Iqbal was back in the hutch after two balls of the innings, it was all over."

Man of the match

Tillakaratne Dilshan has been named man of the match for his 161 not out and 2-35. Here is what he has just had to say about his side's win: "I am really happy with today's innings after getting out first ball in the last game.

"I am enjoying my cricket and when I cross the line I don't think about my age.

"I dropped a catch and it is all a part of the game. But I am happy with our performance and we are getting back to a rhythm. This was a good game for us before we move on to the bigger games."

Bryce McGain

Ex-Australia leg-spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"Sri Lanka have a very experienced line-up, they set a good blueprint with the bat to keep wickets in hand and accelerate in the last few overs. It was an emphatic batting performance - some of the guys didn't get a hit, but if the batters at the top keep doing the job, so be it."

Bryce McGain

Ex-Australia leg-spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"Sabbir's wringing his hand, looking at his finger - the last thing you want is to lose a player to a hand injury, but it was a brute of a delivery. Malinga's release point is so difficult to pick up, but it was a good catch by Sangakkara. He's been an amazing cricketer."

Ahmed lbw Malinga 0 (Ban 240 all out)

Malinga quickly wraps things up by trapping Taskin Ahmed bang in front with a full ball. The finger goes straight up and a review - more out of hope than belief - cannot save Ahmed or his team. It is a 92-run victory for Sri Lanka, who have dominated this game from start to finish. England beware.

Just two balls after bringing up his 50, courtesy of a flick down leg for four, Sabbir goes as the bowler digs one in a bit shorter and catches the batsmen on the gloves before Sangakkara claims.

"After that stumping, Dilshan has 99 one-day international wickets, to go with his 9,586 ODI runs."

Ban 234-8 (Sabbir 47, Rubel 0)

Dilshan continues and a pulled single gives new man Rubel Hossain a chance to show what he can do. And this consists of knocking back the four deliveries he faces.

Ban 233-8 (runs required 100)

The game is gone but Sabbir offers at least one moment of genuine positivity during Mathews' over, courtesy of a launched drive past mid-off for four. Other than that it was all very conservative.

"It's always disappointing when a one-day match pootles out like this because a side thinks they can add 0.001 to their net run rate or something."

Bryce McGain

Ex-Australia leg-spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"Dilshan bowled the most horrendous delivery in international cricket which flew down the leg side - he could bowl left-arm better than that - and then he gets a wicket next ball."

WICKET

Mortaza st Sangakkara b Dilshan 7 (Ban 228-8)

Dilshan claims the wicket of Mortaza, who is beaten by the ball and stumped by Sangakkara, in the middle of a crazy over that featured an awful mis-field at point to concede four runs, a reviewed stumping (given not out) and possibly the worst ball you'll see at this tournament, which Dilshan planted near his own feet.

Scorecard

Ban 222-7 (Sabbir 36, Mortaza 7)

Perera is back on, but his return lasts just two balls (the second of which is pummelled through mid-on for four by Mortaza) before he signals an injury (in his back it would seem) and leaves the field. Mathews takes over and prevents any further boundaries, with both batsmen claiming a single apiece.

Ban 216-7 (Mortaza 1, Sabbir 35)

Herath delivers a neat over to end his spell for the concession of just one further run, courtesy of a turn to leg from Mortaza. The spinner ends with 0-43 from his 10 overs.

Jonathan Agnew

BBC Test Match Special

"He always looks a friendly chap, Herath. I've never had the pleasure of meeting him, but he looks like he could be a village postmaster."

Ban 215-7 (runs required 118)

This is a thankless task for Mashrafe Mortaza, who comes in to join Sabbir at the crease. Sabbir takes responsibility by getting inside a short ball and pulling for four before guiding one down to third man for two. It's all going to be in vain, though.

"We've increasingly seen some of the better teams take their powerplays earlier, when they're in good positions, so the opposition have to burn up their good bowlers and they've got nowhere to go later on. I rather like that."

Mushfiqur b Lakmal 36 (Ban 208-7)

Mushfiqur slices Lakmal's first ball for four but the bowler gets immediate revenge with a slower ball that totally outfoxes the batsman and sets the stumps flashing red and the Sri Lankan fans to their feet.

Ban 204-6 (Mushfiqur 32, Sabbir 29)

Mushfiqur knocks one to leg for a single that brings up 200 for Bangladesh from Malinga's third ball, before Sabbir finally records a powerplay boundary by guiding one down through third man. 10 overs remain, 129 runs to score.

Ban 199-6 (runs required 134)

We've now had four overs of the batting powerplay and we've not had a boundary. If Bangladesh were to pull this off, this was their window to try and do it in. Lakmal's seventh over, which goes for just two singles, is another nail in their coffin.

Ban 197-6 (Sabbir 24, Mushfiqur 30)

Both of these batsmen are set now and should be primed to accelerate. Easier said than done against Malinga, who pounds in and delivers at pace to give Sabbir nothing to swing at. The Bangladesh batsman steers another ball down to third man for two and flicks one to leg for a single to retain strike. Bangladesh creep toward 200 but remain well short of their target.

Ban 193-6 (runs required 140)

Lakmal is back and rattles through his sixth over for the concession of seven runs thanks mainly to a Sabbir pull to mid-wicket and a steer to third man by the same batsman, both of which brought a couple of runs apiece.

Graeme Swann

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"I was on tour once with England in India with Samit Patel, who was quite a portly chap but somehow thought he was Usain Bolt. He said he'd race anyone for money, so we put him up against Ravi Bopara, who really was quick. We set up a 100-yard dash in Indore, Samit lost by about 42 yards and couldn't really understand it."

Ban 186-6 (need 147 off 84 balls)

Malinga is back for the powerplay and tries one of his slower, dipping yorkers, which beats Sabbir but is a few inches wide of off stump. It is the closest he gets to a wicket as the Bangladesh pair claim four singles from the over. That doesn't help either side in their immediate goal.

Ban 182-6 (Mushfiqur 26, Sabbir 14)

Herath pins Bangladesh down again until Sabbir takes a stride down the track and powerfully drives one through cover that beats the diving Chandimal near the rope. They are going to need a few more of those in the next few overs to resurrect their challenge. They've got 151 runs to get and 15 overs to get them in. My basic maths ability tells me that is just a smidge over 10 an over.

Ban 176-6 (Sabbir 9, Mushfiqur 25)

We're back in single territory as Mushfiqur and Sabbir work the ball around the circle to claim three of them, with Dilshan helping them out by angling a ball down the leg side for a wide. However, the required run-rate is now very close to 10 an over.

Ban 171-6 (runs required 162)

Mathews return is short-lived as Herath come back for some more spin. Sabbir looks to keep up the momentum established by Shakib with a sweep for four off the last ball of the over.

Bryce McGain

Ex-Australia leg-spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"Long-off and long-on had gone back, Shakib went to chip it dead straight and didn't get it as precise as he wanted to. Maybe his bat's too good - it came off the middle and it went straight to long-on. They need maybe 10 an over, but it's not as daunting now they play so much T20. But the boundaries here at the MCG are more vast then maybe they're used to."

Ban 165-6 (Sabbir 1, Mushfiqur 23)

Dilshan removes the danger man to further boost his man of the match credentials. The new man is Sabbir Rahman, who gets off the mark with push to cover for one.

WICKET

Shakib c Malinga b Dilshan 46 (Ban 164-6)

Malinga makes no mistake this time as he steadies himself to successfully claim a catch offered by Shakib's chip to mid-on off Dilshan. Briefly, Bangladesh had hopes of pulling off a miracle, but that is surely now a line drawn under such lofty optimistic aspirations.
