Sri Lanka won the second One-Day International (ODI) against Bangladesh by 61 runs and took an unassailable lead in the three match ODI series at Dhaka.

Earlier in the day, veteran Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara scored a scintillating hundred, ably supported by Ashan Priyanjan and Angelo Mathews to propel the visitors to 289 for six.

It was always going to be an uphill battle for the hosts after losing opener Shamsur Rahman in the first over of the innings, lead by Lasith Malinga’s devastating opening spell.

Anamul Haque shrugged off the early hiccups and played some sparkling shots. It was however captain Mushfiqur Rahim’s strokeplay that was the best thing to have come out for Bangladesh in this ODI.

Shakib Al Hasan and Nasir Hossain also played good cameos down the order but with Bangladesh losing wickets at crucial junctures of the game, the target looked out of sight. All the Sri Lankan bowlers chipped in with wickets and Bangladesh could have made a match of it had they stringed a couple of big partnerships up the order. Mushfiqur’s fighting 74 showed a lot of graft and panache but ultimately it was Bangladesh’s sloppy efforts on the field that cost them the match and the series.

Brief scores:

Sri Lanka 289 for 6 in 50 overs (Kumar Sangakkara 128, Ashan Priyanjan 60, Angelo Mathews 56*; Rubel Hossain 3 for 76, Arafat Sunny 1 for 44) beat Bangladesh 228 (Aminul Haque 42, Mushfiqur Rahim 74, Shakib Al Hasan 24; Thisara Perera 2 for 40, Ajantha Mendis 2 for 42) by 61 runs.

Man of the Match: Kumar Sangakkara
