The Sri Lankan team won the toss in the match and invited Bangladesh to bat. In that team opener Shabbir (5) failed but another opener Miraj (38: 2×4, 2×6 off 26 balls) played aggressively. Shakib Al Hasan who came next (24: 3×4 off 22 balls) also looked in good touch. But Mushfiqar Rahim (4) was also dismissed along with these two in consecutive overs. With that, Bangladesh seemed to be limited to a low score.
But in the middle overs, Mahmadullah (27: 1×4, 1×6 in 22 balls) and Afif supported the team. In the end, Hussain (24: 4×4 off 9 balls) and Taskin Ahmed (11 not out) also batted. With that.. Bangladesh managed to score 183 runs. Asita Fernando who bowled the last over gave a total of 17 runs with a six and two boundaries. It is known that the same Bangladesh team was limited to 127/7 against Afghanistan last Tuesday.
