Liton dropped two catches and they were normal, regulation opportunities considering his standards in the outfield

Bangladesh were in control during the middle period of the game against the Lankans while defending 171 as Sri Lanka lost their fourth wicket in the 10th over when the score was 79.

Pressure was mounting on Sri Lanka as the asking rate was going high.

In the 13th over, Liton dropped a crucial catch of Bhanuka Rajapaksa in Afif Hossain’s over and the left-handed batsman was batting on 14 then. He eventually scored 51 off 33 balls.

Liton also missed another crucial catch, this time off Mustafizur Rahman’s bowling in the 15th over.

The batsman - Charith Asalanka - was well set on 63.

Asalanka remained unbeaten on 80 to steer Sri Lanka home eventually. 

Rajapaksa and Asalanka formed a 86-run partnership for the fifth wicket and took the game away from the Tigers.

Liton dropped both their catches and they were normal, regulation opportunities considering Liton’s standards in the outfield. 

Catches win matches and similarly dropped catches lose games.

And the later one happened for Bangladesh in their first match against Sri Lanka.
