Sri Lanka beat Bangladesh by 2 runs

SL cricket

Sri Lanka beat Bangladesh by 2 runs in the first Twenty20 played at Chittagong yesterday.  Thisara Perera removed Anamul Haque off the final ball for Sri Lanka to gain a dramatic two-run victory.

 

Sri Lanka, the world’s top-ranked Twenty20 side, made 168-7 after being sent in to bat and then restricted Bangladesh to 166-7 to take the lead in the two-match series.

 

With Bangladesh needing 17 runs from the final over, Anamul smashed 14 runs off the first five deliveries, but then gave Perera a return catch with the last ball. Anamul made 58 runs off 45 balls with seven boundaries, including three in the final over.

 

Sri Lanka’s left-handed opener Kusal Perera top-scored with 64 off 44 balls.  Kulasekara was the next highest scorer who made 31 off 21 balls with one four and two sixes.

 

Sri Lanka were without frontline batsman Mahela Jayawardene, who is missing the entire limited-overs series of two Twenty20 games and three one-day internationals due to a hand injury.

 

Sri Lanka is the No.1 Twenty20 team under ICC ranking and Bangladesh is in the 10th position.

 

The second Twenty20 game also will be played in Chittagong on Friday.
