Chasing a huge target of 290 runs in the 2nd OD1, Bangladesh were all out for 228 runs in 43 overs, despite of a captain’s knock of 79 runs off 83 balls by Mushfiqur Rahim with that featured five fours and two sixes.
Besides, opener Anamul Haque (42), all rounder Shakib Al Hasan (24), middle order Nasir Hossain (22), lower order Mashrafe Bin Mortaza (17) and one down Mominul Haqu (15) were other notable scorers for Bangladesh reaching the double figures.
Sachithra Senanayake, Thisara Perera, Ajantha Mendis and Lasith Malinga captured two wickets each conceding 33, 40, 43 and 45 runs respectively.
Earlier, a brilliant 17th century by Kumar Sangakkara guided Sri Lanka to score a comfortable 289 runs for 6 in stipulated 50 overs against hosts Bangladesh in the 2nd match of the three-match ODI series.
