Sri Lanka Legends (SL-L) continued their winning streak on Thursday (September 27) as they defeated Bangladesh Legends by a whopping margin of 70 runs in their final league game of the Road Safety World T20 Series to set-up a semi-final date with West Indies Legends (WI-L) on Wednesday (September 28).
Once again, it was their batters who did all the heavy lifting as they smashed the helpless Bangladesh attack to the tune of 213/5 in 20 overs.
Openers Mahela Udawatte (43 off 27) and Sanath Jayasuriya (37 off 25) got Lanka off to a sensational start with a 56-run stand in 6.2 overs.
The former opener smashed 7 fours and 1 six to race his way to a 30-ball 51. Dilshan added 63 runs for the 2nd wicket with Udawatte before adding another 46 with Chamara Silva (34* off 24).
