SL vs BAN: Bangladesh Win A Thriller Against Their Arch-Rivals

Bangladesh have won the battle of nerves. They won the toss and invited Sri Lanka to bat first. Sri Lanka had a good start to their innings. However, they lost their plot in the last five overs and could manage only 124/9 in their 20 overs. 

In the chase, Bangladesh were given a rude shock by Sri Lanka with some early wickets. However, Towhid Hridoy and Litton Das stitched a 63-run partnership and got Bangladesh going towards a win. But Sri Lanka were not ready to go down without a fight. Wanindu Hasaranga and Nuwan Thushara picked up a few wickets towards the end and the match was in the balance. 

But the fact, that Sri Lanka did not have a recognised bowler for the last two overs hurt them. In the end, Bangladesh held their nerves and won the match by two wickets with six balls remaining in the game.

SL vs BAN Live Score: Sri Lanka restricted to a below part total

The Bangladeshi bowlers have done a brilliant job and have kept Sri Lanka to a below par total. Pathum Nissanka looked good and it appeared that Sri Lanka will get to a good total by the end of the innings. At the half-way stage Sri Lanka were 74/3 and it looked like they will get a 160 plus total. 

However, things fell apart from there. Bangladesh conceded only 50 runs in the last 10 overs and picked up six wickets. Rishad Hossain was the star in the second half of the innings with his leg-spin. He picked up three wickets and changed the complexion of the game. 

Sri Lanka have managed only 124/9 in their 20 overs. It looks like they are at least 25-30 short of a par total. But Sri Lanka do have a good bowling attack. Can they make a fight out of this? Let us see as we return in a short while.
