    Double-click for thousand

    Bangladesh had competed superbly for the first two days of the Chittagong test against Sri Lanka. Thanks to Ashraful, Bangladesh scored 300 runs on day one, the first time they'd done it. They then had Sri Lanka in a fair amount of trouble at 178/5, but Maharoof and Samaraweera took the score to nearly 300 and then the tail collapsed.

    Bangladesh were thus only 19 runs behind in the first innings, and started their second innings well. Then somehow they found the button labelled 'Double click to self-destruct' and followed the instructions. Now they're all out for a pitiful 181, thanks mainly to some biffing by Mohd. Rafique. Murali ended up with 6/54, taking his 1000th international wicket, Khaled Mashud caught by Dilshan. Reaching the milestone of 1000 wickets, in his 100th test. Nice symmetry there.

    Sri Lanka thus need 162 to win, which they shouldn't have any problem getting.
