Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Live Cricket Score - 1st ODI Match - Summary

End of Over : 35.2 SL: 124/10

Okay! A not so Super Saturday as Bangladesh crush Sri Lanka in a one-sided affair. We will not promise for a Super Sunday either but definitely hope for one as Hong Kong take on Pakistan in the second game at 1530 local (1130 GMT). Do join us then. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

OUT! Dropped, dropped, dropped, dropped but eventually caught. Sri Lanka's misery is over. Bangladesh have thumped them by 137 runs. Flighted outside off, Aponso comes down the track and looks to go over mid on but the ball goes off the toe end of his bat. It loops towards the substitute Nazmul Hossain Shanto who fumbles quite a number of times before finally holding on.

Summary

It will be Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh in the Asia Cup 2018 tournament opener, in Dubai, on September 15. Both the teams have had some really close matches in the recent past and the contest on Friday would be nothing less than a firecracker. The close-finishes in the Nidahas Trophy, earlier this year, is a testimony to the fact how intense their rivalry has become.

 

The absence of Akila Dananjaya, Dinesh Chandimal and Danushka Gunathilaka will surely dent Sri Lanka’s chances by a bit. Skipper Angelo Mathews will have to step up and lead the side from the front to avoid any mishaps.

 

As for Bangladesh, their key players would be Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, and Mushfiqur Rahim. The team would want the senior pros to fire on the match day, in order to bolster their chances of winning the match.

 

Both the sides would be looking nothing less than a win, as in their group, Afghanistan pose a serious threat to be a contender for Round of 4. Come Saturday, both Sri Lanka and Bangladesh would be looking to begin their 2018 Asia Cup campaign with a win.

 

Sri Lanka Squad: Angelo Mathews (c), Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis, Upul Tharanga, Thisara Perera, Dasun Shanaka, Dhanajaya de Silva, Akila Dananjaya, Dilruwan Perera, Amila Aponso, Kasun Rajitha, Suranga Lakmal, Dushmantha Chameera, Lasith Malinga, Niroshan Dickwella, and Shehan Jayasuriya.

 

Bangladesh Squad: Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Mohammad Mithun, Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim, Ariful Haque, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mehidy Hasan, Nazmul Islam, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Hider Rony, Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Mominul Haque.
