So, a good performance by the Bangladeshi side as they now take on Pakistan in their next game.

Chandimal top scored for Sri Lanka with a run-a-ball 37, but none of the other batsmen could really pose a challenge. Jayasuriya looked threatening, but was cleaned up smartly by Shakib.
...
Al-Amin was the best bowler for the hosts picking up 3 wickets, while Shakib picked up two. Mustafizur, Mortaza and Mahmudullah picked up one wicket a piece.
...
Good bowling performance by the Bangladeshi bowlers. 58/7 off the last 10 overs is what Sri Lanka could get. Speaks volumes about the way the Bangladeshi bowlers bowled. When Chandimal and Jayasuriya were batting, it looked like Sri Lanka would make it, but their departures opened the floodgates for Sri Lanka.
