The thrilling second unofficial ODI of the three-match series between Bangladesh Emerging Team and Sri Lankan Team saw a pulsating finish at BKSP as the host struck two sixes in the last over to win by two wickets Wednesday.

Right-arm medium pacer Yeasin Arafat hit sixes in the second and third ball of the final over to take his side to 274/8 chasing Sri Lanka’s 273.

Host’s captain Nazmul Hossain Shanto and Yasir Ali made a big partnership of 120 for the third wicket and they were cruising before the skipper got out for 77.

Yasir, the man of the match, continued with Afif Hossain but just when the match was heavily tilting in their favor he perished for 85 leaving his side an equation of scoring 47 runs off 44 balls. 

But the host lost few quick wickets and needed 13 off the last over before the Shahin heist. 

With the win, the host leveled the series 1-1 after a 186-run loss in the first match. 

Earlier on the day, the Lankan side made a combined effort to put a challenging total. 

Kamindu Mendis and opener Pathum Nissanka made fifties, scoring 65 and 55 consecutively. 

Jehan Daniel made a rapid 43 to accelerate later in the innings. 

Opening bowler Shafiqul Islam got three wickets while his new ball partner, off-spinner Nayeem Hasan, who made his Test debut last year, grabbed two.
