Match Highlights

September 4, Bangladesh vs. Sri Lanka, 3rd ODI

Sri Lanka 106-4 beat Bangladesh 108 by six wickets (D/L method)

After a bright start, Bangladesh collapses to 108 all out at the end of 38.2 overs in a rain reduced over (48) match. Another downpour early on during the SL innings sets them a target to score 106 in 46 overs which they easily achieved with the loss of four wickets.

September 2, Bangladesh vs. Sri Lanka, 2nd ODI

Sri Lanka won by 75 runs

Sri Lanka rode on Upul Tharanga's maiden century to clinch a one-day series against Bangladesh with a 75-run victory in the second of the 3-ODI series. Bangladesh, who lost the opening game of the three-match series by 88 runs on Wednesday, finished at 220-6 to concede the series to Sri Lanka. Opener Shahriar Nafees top-scored with 51, while skipper Habibul Bashar (41 not out) and super-sub Tushar Imran (31) put on 71 for the sixth wicket but their efforts were not enough to stop Sri Lanka.

Match Reports:
SL Innings

Sri Lanka was made to bat first by Habibul Bashar and the home team posted a respectable 270, aided in no small part by an ordinary day in the field from Bangladesh. Syed Rasel had a memorable debut, capturing two wickets and bowling tidily in general. But the Bangladeshi top order failed once again and the match was practically over before the halfway mark of Bangladesh innings. Khaled Mashud batted out the rest of the overs with tailenders only to delay the obvious.
