Anamul Haque’s heroics were unable to get Bangladesh across Sri Lanka’s 168 as they fell short by two runs in the first T20 International at Chittagong.


The onus was on Anamul to chase 16 off the last over. The Bangladesh batsman struck three fours of the over and the home team needed 3 off the last ball. Perera bowled a high full toss and Anamul mistimed it straight to the bowler to end a thrilling contest.
