Sri Lanka's Chandimal receives two-match suspension for slow over-rate

Sri Lanka's coach Chandika Hathurusingha speaks with captain Dinesh Chandimal during a practice session on the eve of their clash against Bangladesh. AFP

Rahim, who failed to take "The Tigers" home when they needed only two off three balls in the 2016 T20 World Cup Super 10 match against India in Bengaluru, made sure he was right there till the end to guide them to a famous win at the Premadasa Stadium. If Sri Lanka are found guilty of another offence of similar nature in a T20I in the next 12 months with Chandimal as captain, he will receive between two and eight suspension points.

Mendis (57) shared a 56 run stand with Danushka Gunathilaka (26) before putting on 85 for the second wicket with Perera. The live streaming of Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh 3rd T20I can be seen online at JioTV.

Chasing 215 to win, Bangladesh got off to a superb start as Liton Das and Tamim Iqbal amassed a 74-run partnership before Liton was trapped lbw off the bowling of Nuwan Pradeep for a 19-ball 43, which included two boundaries and five sixes.

Sri Lanka will not only be confident having defeated India but at the same time, the hosts will be angry after losing to Bangladesh by five wickets in a high-scoring affair on Saturday night. Bangladesh had a breakthrough but not before Mendis sent a Mahmudullah delivery soaring over deep mid-wicket for another maximum. Among rest players, Tharanga remain not out with 32 runs so far. It is also a must-win game for Bangladesh as another loss will make it very hard for them to make the final on March 18. Soumya Sarkar struggled to get runs on a flat pitch, scoring 24 off 22 balls but it seemed that the Lankan bowlers would pull things back.

Captain and part-time spinner Mahmudullah Riyad checked the run flow with two wickets in an over, claiming Mendis and Dasun Shanaka (0), both batsmen caught by Sabbir Rahman.

On the bowling front, Jaydev Unadkat needs to be more consistent.

"It was fantastic to see and good inspiration for us".

Mushfiqur Rahim was awarded the Man of the Match for his superb knock of 72 runs.
