Commentary

5:38 AM IST That is it from this tour. The trophy has been handed over to Dhananjaya de Silva. Bangladesh will be disappointed. Just the ODI series they clinched. A lot of work to be done for them. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. Make sure to check the upcoming schedule. Till then, goodbye and cheers!
5:38 AM IST Kamindu Mendis wins the Player of the Match award and the Player of the Series award. He says he has been working hard with the staff to improve his cricket. Tells he is confident to bowl with the right-arm and got wickets as well.
5:37 AM IST Najmul Hossain Shanto says they didn't play well, bowlers showed character but the batters were not upto the mark. Adds batters got set but missed out on big scores. Tells they have to prepare for any situation and play more first-class cricket.
5:37 AM IST Dhananjaya de Silva says it was brilliant to win on a dead wicket. Adds the batters played well in both games. Tells there was not much for the spinners but all the bowlers were on the spot. Reckons they are looking forward to the future matches.
5:35 AM IST ...Presentation next...
5:34 AM IST Mehidy was the star for them but the target was way too much. For Lanka, Kamindu Mendis and Lahiru Kumara were excellent. They picked 7 in total and have given their side a massive win yet again.
5:32 AM IST In the second innings, it was a good effort from the Bangladesh bowlers to pick wickets at regular intervals but despite that, Sri Lanka's massive lead always meant they were well ahead in the game. They set a target of over 500 for the hosts which was always going to be a big task but they put up a really good batting display.
5:28 AM IST In reply, it was yet another sorry display from the hosts with the bat as they finished with below 200. Asitha Fernando was the pick of the bowler with a four-fer but he was well-supported by the rest too. They managed to get a massive lead and chose to bat yet again.
5:25 AM IST Yet another easy win for Lanka and they have completely outplayed the hosts in this series. First it was a combined batting effort from them in the first innings where both the Mendis scored 90s to take their side over 500-run mark.

3:25 AM IST Just the three wickets is what Lanka need. Bangladesh, well, they'll be hoping to show some fight. Mehidy Hasan has done well and Taijul has been gritty so far. They'll be hoping to delay the inevitable for as long as possible. Lanka on the other hand, will be eager to finish this quickly. Stay tuned for what could be the last session of the game.
3:23 AM IST ... DAY 5, SESSION 1 ...
11:38 AM IST Sri Lanka won't mind much. They know the victory is just around the corner. Just 3 wickets is what they needed and maybe a fresh bowling attack will help them achieve the target. Their bowlers were relentless. They were not much help from the pitch but all of them bowled really well. Prabath Jayasuriya and Kamindu Mendis ended with two each while Lahiru Kumara got two wickets as well. The win looks inevitable for Sri Lanka and the first session on Day 5 could be the last. Join us at 9.30 am IST (4 am GMT) and earlier for the build up. Cheers.
11:36 AM IST Bangladesh have successfully managed to take the game to Day 5. They batters have shown a lot of character in the chase but at the moment the victory looks far from achievable. All the batters got off to a start but none tried to hang in around and play a big innings. Mominul Haque scored a quick fifty but he too fell. Shakib and Das were dismissed in their 30s. Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan have been aggressive with their approach and have done well to stitch a partnership still they need another 243 runs to make it count.

8:42 AM IST Tea Break! The umpire takes off the bails and the players head out after another eventful session. Bangladesh lost 4 wickets in this one. They built a few good-looking partnerships but gave away their wickets as well. Prabath Jayasuriya got the opening breakthrough for the Lankans with the wicket of Mahmudul Hasan Joy. After that, we saw some disciplined bowling and good field placements. Vishwa Fernando and Lahiru Kumara got rid of Zakir Hasan and Najmul Hossain Shanto. Just when Mominul Haque was looking dangerous, Prabath Jayasuriya sent him back to the dugout. At the break, the visitors will be the happier team and they will be planning on replicating the same performance in the final session of the day as well. Join us at 2.30 pm IST (9 am GMT) for the final session of the day. Both team will be fighting hard.
