Nidahas Trophy 2018: Sri Lanka will battle against Bangladesh

India v Bangladesh

Hosts Sri Lanka will aim to continue their recent domination against a beleaguered Bangladesh when the two teams meet in the Nidahas Twenty20 Trophy in Colombo on March 10. The keeper-bat broke into what's known as the "Naagin Dance". That was Thisara's 50th wicket in T20 Internationals. Sri Lanka bowled as many as 4 overs less in the stipulated time.

Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah (2-15) got Mendis out with his off-spin as he struck twice in his very first over to check Sri Lanka's surge.

Mendis smacked five sixes in his 30-ball blitz and Perera top-scored for the hosts with 74 off 48 balls.

The openers, Kusal Mendis and Danushka Gunathilaka, began well but failed to make a substantial contribution, something they will look to change on Friday.

Nuwan Pradeep, in his four overs, took two Bangladeshi wickets for an expensive 37 runs. That the visitors persisted with bowling short despite getting smacked, too helped Sri Lanka's cause. He hit four sixes and five fours. The well-settled Mendis hoiked Nazmul Islam over square leg for a six to break the shackles.

Chandimal will return for the final of the competition, should Sri Lanka - who now lead the standings - qualify.

After Soumya was gone, skipper Mahmudullah (20 off 11) was out when the team was 22 runs away from the victory.

Captain Dinesh Chandimal has been suspended from Sri Lanka's upcoming two T20Is after being found guilty of a serious over-rate offence in Saturday's defeat to Bangladesh. For Bangladesh Mustafizur took three wickets so far. Meanwhile, Perera continued his onslaught on the Bangladesh bowlers, and was mostly dealing in boundaries.

With a collective approach, the Bangladesh batsmen overcame the demons of their showing against India when they had played 55 dot balls as they posted the second-highest Powerplay score of 74 runs in chase of a mammoth 215, eventually registering the fourth-highest successful chase in the shortest format and the highest by a team from the subcontinent.
