Sri Lanka dash Bangladesh hopes

Sports Reporter, Dhaka

Bangladesh Under-23 team were knocked out of the ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup 2018 final’s contention by Sri Lanka Under-23 when the tournament hosts posted a four wickets victory against Nurul Hasan’s team in semifinals at R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo yesterday.

Sri Lanka won the toss and opted to bowl first and got off to a good start as Bangladesh’s opening batsman Zakir Hossain gave away his wicket to Chamika Karunaratne. Bangladesh’s batsmen were their usual self and kept giving away wickets early in the match.  Mizanur Rahman top scored with 72 runs of 95 balls while Yeasir Ali (66) and Mosaddek Hossain (39) added some decency to the total. Bangladesh were all out in 49.1 over with a total of 239 runs.

Sri Lanka also stumbled in the beginning of their chase. Pacer Shafiul Islam gave Bangladesh, the perfect start they needed by taking the wicket of Sri Lankan opener Hasitha Boyagoda in the first over. Sri Lanka prematurely lost two more wickets but an eccentric hero came forward for Sri Lanka in the form of Kamindu Mendis, who played an exceptional innings of 91 runs of 88 balls not out.

Mendis smacked a boundary to cross the target and concluded Sri Lankan innings at 241 in 48.2 overs, sparing four wickets.

Sri Lanka will now face India in the December 15 final.
