With the sudden change of momentum, Sri Lanka milked 106 runs in the last 10 to finish on 294, and the pressure came upon the Bangladesh batters
At the end of the 43rd over, Sri Lanka were batting on 208 runs for the loss of four wickets and Bangladesh seemed to be in good control of the opposition.
However, in a quick turn of events, the host pressed the gas to add 86 runs in the last seven overs of the innings.
Right-arm pacer Shafiul Islam bowled three overs during this time and gave away 41 runs, while in his first seven he had conceded only 27.
Medium pacer Soumya Sarkar bowled two overs, the 44th and the 50th and leaked 13 and 11 respectively for two wickets.
@BCBtigers' ambition of revival through the short tour of @OfficialSLC finished on a nightmare Wednesday.https://t.co/IEvteH6cdy#BCBTIGERS #BCB #TIGERS #BANGLADESH #CRICKET #BANGLADESHCRICKET #SRILANKA #SLC #SRILANKACRICKET #BANGLADESHTEAM #SRILANKATEAM #SRILANKACRICKETTEAM— Dhaka Tribune Sports (@Sport_DT) July 31, 2019
With the sudden change of momentum, Sri Lanka milked 106 runs in the last 10 to finish on 294, and the pressure came upon the Bangladesh batters.
Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam ended up being the most economical for Bangladesh, giving away only 35 in his quota of 10, including a maiden and one wicket.
However as it was in the previous game, Taijul missed a partner at the other end to make use of the crunch situation that he had created.
