Bangladesh couldn't execute the ideal game as Sri Lanka skiped back from two losses with a persuading 97-run win in the third and last ODI at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur yesterday.
Captain Kusal Perera's brilliant hundred aided the sightseers post a battling all out of 286 for six preceding a lady five-wicket pull from youthful pacer Dushmantha Chameera packaged out the hosts for 189 in 42.3 overs.
Having lost the arrangement effectively, the guests had rolled out four improvements aside while the hosts went in with one change, left-hander Naim Sheik supplanting Liton Das at the highest point of the request.
Notwithstanding, the change didn't deliver any profit for the hosts as Naim oversaw just one run prior to turning into the main casualty of Chameera. The lean quick bowler proceeded to get two additional wickets soon – Shakib Al Hasan (4), who couldn't have an effect all through the arrangement, and Tamim Iqbal (17) – as the Tigers were diminished to 28 for three.
Player-of-the-arrangement Mushfiqur Rahim and Mosaddek Hossain attempted to construct an association, adding 56 runs for the fourth wicket, yet Mushfiqur's excusal for 28 flagged the beginning of the end for the Tigers.
Mosaddek and Mahmudullah scored fifties yet it was never enough for Bangladesh with the necessary run rate climbing constantly.
Captain Tamim, at the post-match meeting, said that in spite of winning the arrangement the Tigers should improve a ton in the coming days.
"I would say we were adequately fortunate to win the initial two games. Our batting hasn't been sufficient and we need to chip away at this viewpoint. Our bowling was acceptable in the initial two games yet indeed we needed consistency with the ball and were insecure in our getting and handling in the third game. So there is still a great deal of work to be done," Tamim said.
For Sri Lanka, however, it was the best exhibition in general and captain Perera drove from the front by scoring his 6th century in the wake of choosing for bat first.
Perera, close by Dhanushka Gunathilaka, scored 82 runs for the initial wicket, and regardless of Gunathilaka's flight for 39 off the bowling of Taskin Ahmed, Perea kept the scoreboard ticking.
The left-hander was dropped multiple times and utilized those let-offs. He was first dropped on 66 by Mustafizur Rahman off Shakib Al Hasan prior to being dropped on 79 by Afif Hossain. The most straightforward possibility, however, was grassed by Mahmudullah at mid-on off the bowling of Rahman, with the batsman one shy of his century.
Perera was ultimately excused by Shoriful Islam for 120 off 122 balls – his innings highlighting eleven fours and a six. Bangladesh figured out how to get wickets at normal stretches however the early stage laid by the openers assisted the guests with continueing the force. Dhananjaya de Silva's unbeaten 55 off 70 balls guided the guests to the large aggregate.
Taskin was the pick of the bowlers for the hosts with four wickets for 46 runs in nine overs.
