Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka, 10th ODI Match, Asia Cup, 2014

Commentary

Sri Lanka won by 3 wkts | Bangladesh Vs Sri Lanka Live Score, 10th ODI Match

Expectedly, Mathews is the Man of the Match for his unbeaten 74.
Right then, we are done with the league stages of the Asia Cup. Do join us for the summit clash when the hitherto unbeaten Sri Lanka clash with the defending champions, Pakistan, day after tomorrow. Cheers for your company. Goodbye for now.
Mathews: 'I was a under pressure to be honest. I had to consolidate. We had to build partnerhsips. Chaturanga batted really well. He is our find of the tournament. All the bowlers bowled brilliantly. We wanted to try out a few things. We wanted to chase anyway and see how we go about things. We lost early wickets but the boys put up a good show. I am sure Mahela will come back, score and win matches for us.'
Expectedly, Mathews is the Man of the Match for his undefeated 74.
Rahim: 'We fought well in all four games. We worked hard. We dropped some catches. The batsmen have thrown away starts. It is really disappointing. There were some injury concerns. But that is not an excuse. We just wanted to play for the fans. Hopefully, we will come hard in the T20 World Cup. Thanks for the support.'
Al-Amin Hossain scuppered Sri Lanka's chase, snaring Kusal Perera and Sanga early. Things went from bad to worse when Thirimanne sold Mahela a dummy. But then, Angelo Mathews, borrowing the calmness of sufi saints, anchored the chase to perfection, helping Sri Lanka survive the Bangladesh scare and with it maintain their unbeaten streak in the run-up to the Asia Cup final. The spunky Chaturanga de Silva was unlucky to miss out a fifty of his own but proved the ideal foil for his skipper. Do stick around for the presentation and quotes from both the captains.
