Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Commentary

4:00 PM IST ...Presentation...
4:00 PM IST Sri Lanka wouldn't have thought that this match will go down to the wire with more than 200 runs on the board. They bowled well in the start but a couple of bowlers really let them off. Matheesha Pathirana, Binura Fernando and Dasun Shanaka all went for runs and looked nervy too but a wonderful last over from Shanaka saw them get over the line. Still, they wouldn't be much happier as they could have done a lot better after the start they got. Earlier, some incredible knocks from Kusal Mendis, Sadeera Samarawickrama and Charith Asalanka got them over 200. It turned out to be just enough for the visitors.
3:54 PM IST Sri Lanka have done it! Pin-drop silence in the stadium and even in the Bangladeshi camp. WOW! What a match to witness. These two teams always put on a show and today was once from the top drawer as well. You feel for Bangladesh though. It was just about two players for them. First, they lost three inside the Powerplay but Mahmudullah came with intent and played some breathtaking strokes. He single-handedly kept the fight alive. Once he fell, many thought it was all over but then Jaker Ali came in to find light in a dark tunnel. He right till the last over kept the hopes alive. Bangladesh needed 12 off 6 with the momentum their side but it was Ali's wicket that put all things to an end.

Dasun Shanaka to Taskin Ahmed, 1 run

Just the one! IT IS SRI LANKA WHO WIN! This is full and outside off. Ahmed looks to swing but gets an inside edge onto the pads. This rolls on the off side for one.


Dasun Shanaka to Shoriful Islam, 1 run

An appeal but not given! Review is taken but that is a waste of a review. NOT OUT! That is missing off. A poor review. More in desperation we feel. Islam moves right outside off. Shanaka bowls it outside off. He swings but misses. It hits the pad and rolls on the off side. A leg bye taken. Four to tie, five to win for Bangla. Another other than that, it is Lanka.


Dasun Shanaka to Shoriful Islam, 4 runs

FOUR! Islam is not going down without a fight. 6 needed in 2 now. Fuller and outside off. This is slammed through covers and the ball races away.

3:46 PM IST Shoriful Islam walks to the middle. 10 runs needed in 3 balls.

Dasun Shanaka to Jaker Ali, no run

OUT! TAKEN! Straight to the fielder! Pin-drop silence here in the stadium. Heart break for Ali. What a knock by him, he held the key for his side to get over the line. Shanaka though gets him and Lanka are ecstatic. Goes full and outside off. Ali looks to go over long off but since this is quite full, he does not get the elevation and holes out to the fielder there.
