Sri Lanka won by 3 wkts | Bangladesh Vs Sri Lanka Live Score, 2nd T20I

Right then, the trophy is handed over to Chandimal's boys.
Kulasekara: 'Both games were exciting. It was a pleasure to win the matches. But we have to improve in a few areas. Bangladesh have got better and bettwe with each game. Looking forward to the ODI series.'
Nuwan Kulasekara is the Player of the Series for his 4 wickets with the ball in addition to 33 runs with the bat.
Thisara Perera: 'After the fall of the 6th wicket, I wnated to show who I was. I just wanted to support Sanga. Thanks to the SL crowd for all the cheer and support.'
Thisara Perera is the Man of the Match for his impactful 28-ball-35
Chandimal: 'Credit goes to the bowlers. They restricted Bangladesh to 120. We lost early wickets but Thisara and Sanga batted superbly. As I said, it was a good opportunity to play in the same venue before the World Cup. We have to do some homework, especially the batsmen. We have to pick up the peices and be ready for the World Cup. I thank the crowd for coming down and supporting us.'
Mortaza: 'Yeah ,we won the toss and batted first. Our batsmen did not do well. But the bowling and fielding was good. There was nothing to lose. We wanted to give our 100 percent. So many posives to gain from this series. A lot of young players have come through and peformed. All the supporters have been with us. Hopefully, they will keep supporting us.'
With the game hurtling to another nail-biting last gasp finish, Senanayake showed uber calmness to finish things off with a boundary with the upshot being Sri Lanka zooming to a 2-0 series win. The hosts' bowlers were on the money but it was not sufficient to mask their batsmen's profligacy. Do not stray too much. Presentation coming at you in a jiffy.
Just when it seemed Sri Lanka would seal the chase with ease, the hosts battled back strongly to shred Sri Lanka's top order. Mortaza led from the front, turning the game on its head with a decisive double strike. Ever the fighter, Sangakkara lifted Sri Lanka from the gloom and put them back on track, sharing a 46-run stand with Thisara Perera.
Phew! What a thrilling finish again.. Time to catch our collective breaths now. Bangladesh, resorting to ugly hacks, heaves and swipes, crashed to 120 all-out after batting first. Debutant Sabbir was the lone ranger in Bangladesh's profligate batting effort. Another striking feature of the first session was Sri Lanka's impressive fielding.
End of over 20, 11 runs (1 2 2 1 1 4 )
SL: 123/7
Sachithra Senanayake - 12(9) This over: 9 runs
Thisara Perera - 35(28) This over: 2 runs
Farhad Reza

19.6 Farhad Reza to Sachithra Senanayake 4
FOUR, Sri Lanka win and sweep the series 2-0! Yet another last ball finish. This was a shabby delivery, shortish and just outside off, Senanayake pulls it away behind square leg
2 required off the last ball.. The crowd are on their feet. Senanayake looks calm though in the face of pressure. Backward square leg moves into mid-wicket
19.5 Farhad Reza to Thisara Perera 1
1 run, back of a length and just outside off, T Perera slaps it away to deep mid wicket
Yet another discussion, this time between the bowler and Mortaza.
19.4 Farhad Reza to Sachithra Senanayake 1
1 run, length delivery on off, Senanayake clears his front leg and heaves it away to long on
