Bangladesh edged past arch-rivals Sri Lanka in a tight hard-fought tussle at the Grand Prairie Stadium in Texas in match number 15 of the 2024 T20 World Cup.

Here’s the timeline of how BAN vs SL panned out in Texas:

BAN vs SL Highlights: Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Subdue Sri Lanka’s Flying Start

Being put into bat first by Bangladesh captain Najmul Hossain Shanto, Sri Lanka’s top-order got off to a flier, racing to 53 runs by the end of the opening powerplay despite losing two key wickets.

Senior fast bowler Taskin Ahmed made the first strike for Bangladesh by knocking over Sri Lankan opener Kusal Mendis in the third over of the match. In the final over of the powerplay, Mustafizur Rahman got into his groove by getting rid of dangerman Kamindu Mendis.

BAN vs SL Highlights: Rishad Hossain Plunders SL Further With Three Quick Wickets

Pathum Nissanka, having raced to a 28-ball 47, threw away his wicket at 70-3 with a nothing shot to become Mustafizur Rahman’s second wicket of the evening.

Amidst a brewing partnership between Charith Asalanka and Dhananjaya de Silva, Bangladesh leg-spinner Rishad Hossain (3-22) scalped both well-set batters as well as Sri Lankan captain Wanindu Hasaranga in a quick three-wicket burst in the middle overs.

BAN vs SL Highlights: Sri Lanka Manage Just 15 From Final Four Overs

In his return spell, Mustafizur Rahman got rid of Maheesh Theekshana for a duck to finish with figures of 3-17 from his four overs. Bangladesh’s new-ball speedster Tanzim Hasan Sakib also got himself into the wickets column in the final over by dismissing a well-set Angelo Mathews to restrict Sri Lanka to just 124-9.

As it turned out, the collective brilliance of Bangladesh bowlers prevented Sri Lanka from flourishing at the death, as they managed just 15 runs from their final four overs of the innings.

BAN vs SL Highlights: Dhananjaya, Nuwan Thushara Lead Sri Lankan Fightback

Sri Lanka’s experimental new-ball spinner Dhananjaya de Silva deceived Bangladesh opener Soumya Sarkar for a two-ball duck in the first over of the run-chase.

T20I specialist and right-arm fast bowler Nuwan Thushara also struck in the opening over of his spell to get rid of Tanzid Hasan before dismissing Najmul Hossain Shanto as Bangladesh slipped to 28-3 in 5.2 overs in a run-chase of 125.

Thereafter, number three batter Litton Das (36 off 38 balls) and Towhid Hridoy (40 off 20 balls) shared 63 runs in the subsequent six overs to lead Bangladesh’s brief recovery before Sri Lankan captain Wanindu Hasaranga curtailed their threatening resistance in quick succession.

BAN vs SL Highlights: Mahmudullah, Tanzim Overcome Late Wickets As BAN Clinch Thriller

Nuwan Thusara added a couple of more wickets to his tally to finish with figures of 4-18, as Bangladesh slipped to 113-8 despite having gained momentum at one stage of their run-chase.

Regardless, all-rounder Mahmudullah held on to some tense overs with the bat alongside Tanzim Hasan Sakib to steer Bangladesh with two wickets and an over to spare.
