Nidahas Trophy: Bangladesh win toss, put Lanka to bat first

Share

The third T20I Tri-nation Series of Nidahas Trophy 2018 is between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh which is scheduled for today.

Sri Lanka entered the game high on confidence, having comfortably beaten India in the tournament opener and their recent record against Bangladesh gave them the edge. Liton had smashed five sixes and two fours.

Bangladesh and Sri Lanka looks as opposite ends of the confidence scale as the visiting side could not register win in any worldwide match since January 23, since the Tigers lost two ODIs, two Tests and three T20s on the trot at home. But Mushfiqur launched a mighty six over mid-wicket to bring the equation down to nine runs off the final over.

Dasun Shanaka and Dinesh Chandimal fell cheaply but Upul Tharanga helped Sri Lanka score 17 runs in the 17th over with the help of two boundaries and a six. When his time to bat came, Mushfiqur slammed four sixes and five boundaries during a smashing knock.

Bangladesh have recently lost the T20I home series 2-0 against Sri Lanka last month and moreover, they have not won an worldwide match since January 23. Then Kusal Perera, who walloped India's attack in the opening night with a match winning half-century (66), and Kusal Mendis cashed in on hapless Bangladesh.

The openers, Kusal Mendis and Danushka Gunathilaka, began well but failed to make a substantial contribution, something they will look to change on Friday. Liton Das, in particular, was very aggressive during his 19-ball stay at the crease.
