A five-fer from Nuwan Thushara in the third, made the visitors lift the trophy here at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. What's next? The two sides will face each other in the 50-over format in the three-match series. The first one will be on Wednesday, the 13th of March, at 1.30 pm IST (8 am GMT).

12:50 PM IST Stay tuned for the Presentations...
12:43 PM IST Earlier in the game, Sri Lanka opted to bat first and lost early wickets but recovered well with a solid partnership between Kusal Mendis and Wanindu Hasaranga. Mendis played aggressively to score a fifty and continued to dominate, reaching 86 runs before falling out to Taskin Ahmed. Despite some failures in the middle order, Dasun Shanaka's quick cameo helped Sri Lanka reach a competitive total of over 170 runs. The Bangladesh bowlers, led by Rishad Hossain and Taskin Ahmed, picked up crucial wickets, with Shoriful Islam and Mustafizur Rahman also contributing with a wicket each.
12:41 PM IST Well, well, the Lankan bowlers spat fire from the very first ball. They never let the Bangladesh batters settle into the game. Dhananjaya de Silva drew the first blood for the Lankans in his very first delivery, who came in as a replacement for the injured Angelo Mathews. Nuwan Thushara, though, was the star of the show, picking up a hat-trick in his first over, which was a maiden as well. They had a slight hiccup with dismissing Rishad Hossain, but once that was done, they got the game back under their control. Nuwan Thushara ended up with a five-fer. The skipper, Wanindu Hasaranga picked up two while Dasun Shanaka, Maheesh Theekshana, and Dhananjaya de Silva chipped in with one.
12:39 PM IST Chasing 175 was never going to be an easy task but Sri Lanka made it even worse for the home side. Bangladesh were under the pump from the word go. None of their batters were able to find their groove at the start and were dealt with some massive damage. Rishad Hossain and Taskin Ahmed showed intent and played a brilliant knock but they couldn't recover from the damage done to them earlier. Taskin Ahmed scored 31 off 21 while Rishad Hossain smashed 7 sixes on his way to 53. He missed one off Theekshana and with his wicket, the visitors took control of the series. Nevertheless, the side will surely take the lessons from this enthralling series back.
12:37 PM IST What a thrilling game! Sri Lanka dominates the series decider away from home and will keep their hands on the trophy here. Bangladesh, courtesy of a brilliant half-ton from Rishad Hossain and Taskin Ahmed's quickfire cameo, did present some fight after a very poor start. However, once Rishad Hossain departed, things were beyond the reach of the home side.
