Moments and records of this match…

1. Tushara bowled Tanjid
After a poor show with the bat, Sri Lanka got off to a great start in bowling and dismissed Bangladesh openers cheaply. After Dhananjaya de Silva dismissed Soumya Sarkar in the first over, Nuwan Thushara picked up the wicket of Tanjid Hasan in a brilliant fashion. After giving away two singles off his first three balls in the second over, Thushara bowled a full-length in-swinger. Tanjid could not read it. He was completely baffled by the pace and swing. The ball hit his off stump. His dismissal caused concern in the Bangladesh camp as the team lost 2 wickets for just 6 runs.

Tanjid Hasan was out after scoring 3 runs in 6 balls.

2. Teeksha takes a diving catch
Sri Lankan player Mahish Theekshana took a brilliant diving catch at third man to send Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan back to the pavilion. Bangladesh was trying to chase their target when Tauhid Hridoy took the lead by hitting three consecutive sixes off Wanindu Hasaranga. Hridoy’s wicket gave the team a breather. However, Bangladesh still had the upper hand as they had the experience of Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah at the crease. After 16 overs, the Bangla Tigers were 108-5 and Pathirana was brought in to bowl his final over. The right-arm pacer bowled the second ball short, which Shakib played over third man with a cut shot on the top of the bounce. Theekshana, stationed at deep, came in quickly and took the catch while running and diving.
