Mahela Jayawardene’s poor form continued as he was dismissed for 14 by Aghanistan bowler Mirwais Ashraf, who claimed his second wicket in their Asia Cup 2014 match at Shere Bangla Stadium in Mirpur on Monday.

Sri Lanka reached 88 for three from 23 overs and Kumar Sangakkara once again has the responsibility of bailing his side out of trouble.

Jayawardene faced 14 balls to score as many runs, during which he hit two boundaries. He added 33 runs for the third wicket with Sangakkara.

Earlier, Kusak Perera, who batted well for his 33, studded with four boundaries and a six got an inside edge off Ashraf on the first ball of the 16th over.  The left-handed batsman, known for his identical batting style with Sri Lankan legend Sanath Jayasuriya, played some attractive strokes during his stay at the crease.

Sri Lanka lost their first wicket in the sixth over, when Shapoor Zadran found a gap through the Sri Lankan opener Lahiru Thirimanne bat and pad to knock down his middle stump on the fourth ball of the sixth over in the match.

Perera hit a boundary on the penultimate ball of the fifth over off Najibullah Zadran to get into the groove.

Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat against Afghanistan in the seventh game of the tournament.
