Indeed a disheartening loss for Bangladesh as they lost the contest by 21 runs. Once again it was their batting that let them down. Except for Towhid Hridoy, no other batter could really get going and adapt to the challenging conditions.
In pursuit of Sri Lanka’s 257-run total, Bangladesh’s innings got wrapped in 236 runs. The openers provided a decent start with a fine fifty-run partnership between them. But as soon as the first wicket fell, the incoming batters just couldn’t resist and gave theirs too.
The fifth-wicket partnership between Mushfiqur Rahim and Towhid Hridoy did some good work to keep the chase alive, but that too couldn’t do much as Dasun Shanaka got rid of the former batter at a crucial moment. Again the opening was made and it was Sri Lanka’s time to seal the game for themselves.
Towhid Hridoy played a gritty innings of 82 runs in 97 deliveries but he couldn’t take his side home.
Sri Lanka, in the first innings, also felt the same shocks, thanks to Bangladesh’s bowling prowesses. The island nation scored 257 runs in 50 overs, which was a decent total given the surface was tricky. Opener Prathum Nissanka scored 40 runs, while wicketkeeper Kusal Mendis registered his half-century and Sadeera Samarawickrama played a memorable innings of 93 runs in 72 deliveries.
On a surface, where most of the batters felt difficulty in get going, Sadeera Samarawickrama aced his game and took Sri Lanka to a respectable and confident total.
Samarawickrama’s fine knock followed by Lankan bowlers’ smart tactics helped them clinch the game against Bangladesh by 21 runs. With the win, Sri Lanka moved up in the Asia Cup 2023 Points Table.
