Bangladesh Beats Lanka - Well Done Shakib

Bangladesh recorded their second ODI victory over Sri Lanka with a thrilling five-wicket win at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium. This was must-win game against most powerful team in this touranment. Shakib Al Hasan scored a sparkling 92 not out as Bangladesh chased down Sri Lanka's total of 147 with all of seven overs in hand. The match was reduced to 31 overs after heavy fog delayed the start in Mirpur. But once play got underway, Bangladesh made immediate in-roads in to the Sri Lanka innings. Mashrafe Mortaza removed opener Upul Tharanga for a duck with the third delivery of the day, while Kumar Sangakkara also fell without scoring in his next over.
