Bangladesh were set a target of 215 runs and it did not look an easy one. But the openers Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das took their score to 74 in 34 ball before the latter was dismissed for 47. Bangladesh kept going. They lost two more wickets but kept the scoring rate above the required rate and now Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah are batting at the death overs as Bangladesh look in control of the chase. Sri Lanka were 98/1 after first 10 overs and took 116 in the next 10. Kusal Mendis and Kusal Perera scored fifties as Sri Lanka ended with 214 for 6.
