Earlier in the day, Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bat but had a shocking start to the match, losing the two big wickets of Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan to Dushmantha Chameera in the second over of the match.

At 15/2, Mushfiqur joined Liton Das as the duo attempted to revive Bangladesh’s innings. The pair combined for 34 runs, ensuring they didn’t lose another wicket before the first powerplay.

On his first delivery of the match, Sandakan got the breakthrough for Sri Lanka making Liton cut the ball straight to the fielder at a backward point. Sandakan added to Bangladesh’s pressure sending Mosaddek Hossain back to the pavilion for just 10 runs. The loss of wickets did not put a stop to Mushfiqur Rahim’s knock as he went on to reach his second fifty of the series.
