Tanzim Hasan Shakib, who was used as the third seamer, claimed 3-44 to give Sri Lanka early trouble, before Shoriful Islam (3-51) and Taskin Ahmed (3-60) took over for the Lankans. Came to the party to wreak havoc.

Zenith Liyanaz scored the highest 67 runs for the team with the help of three fours and two sixes in 69 balls, while captain Kusal Mendis scored 75 runs with the help of five fours and one six and scored a total of 59 runs.

After electing to bat first, Sri Lanka flew high with Pathum Nissanka and Avishka Fernando displaying aggressive batting and blasting the Bangladesh bowlers.

The duo put on a partnership of 71 runs in just 59 balls, before Tanzim took the wicket of Fernando, who scored a run-a-ball 33.

Tanzim then gave double happiness by taking the wickets of Nissanka, who scored 36 off 28, and Sadira Samarawickrama in two consecutive overs to leave the visitors at 84-3 in 13.1 overs.
