    COMMENTARY

    That's it from us. This emphatic win sees Bangladesh take a vital lead in the series. The next game is extremely important for both teams for different reasons. It takes place at the same venue on 28th March at 1430 local time (0900 GMT). Do join us for it. Till then, it's goodbye!
    Bangladeshi skipper, Mashrafe Mortaza says that it is very important to start a 3-match ODI series with a victory. States that they played the perfect game today and it is tough to lose after playing so well. Applauds his senior players for stepping up. Adds that they have the perfect mix of experience and youngsters in the team. Applauds Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan and Sabbir Rahman for their batting. Praises Mosaddek Hossain and Mahmudullah for their brilliant cameos in the end as well.
    Sri Lankan skipper, Upul Tharanga thinks now he should have batted first. States they controlled the game well in the middle with the ball and were good in the field as well but gave away 30-40 runs extra towards the end. Adds chasing big totals, it is essential somebody bats through and gets a big score. Ends by saying he will talk with his team about all these things and try to do better in the next game.
    Man of the Match, Tamim Iqbal says that he is not impressed with his conversion rate. Adds that he wants to improve his average and also help his team. Opines that Sri Lanka were bowling well at times but he got support from Shakib in the middle overs when required. Ends by saying that 300 was always on their mind and it was the heat which made life even difficult for him towards the end.
    Sri Lanka were absolutely toothless today, both with bat and ball. They were taken for runs earlier in the day by the Tigers to all parts of the park and now, fell prey to some good bowling. Winning the toss never really worked in their favour. Barring Dinesh Chandimal and Thisara Perera, nobody really put up a fight for them. Losing early wickets and then nobody really holding one end proved to be their undoing in today's game. It'll be something they'll especially want to look at for the upcoming games.
    One of the most comfortable wins Bangladesh will ever enforce on anybody. It's a testament to their hard work that they've done it on their opposition's soil. They put up a massive score on the board first courtesy a sublime ton from Tamim Iqbal and a couple of fifties from Sabbir Rahman and Shakib Al Hasan. Setting a target of 325, they continued that good work with the ball and cleaned Sri Lanka up for less than 250. Almost all the bowlers chipped in with the wickets and that will please skipper Mashrafe Mortaza more than anything else.

    Mehedi Hasan to Upul Tharanga, no run, NOT OUT! The benefit of the doubt goes to Upul Tharanga! It's flighted on a driving length just around off, invites Upul Tharanga forward to defend but the away turn beats the outside edge. Rahim collects the ball, whips the bails off in a flash and appeals instantly. The square leg umpire, who is standing at point, isn't sure and so, he goes upstairs. The third umpire has a look at it multiple times and after taking his time, signals it as not out. From one angle it looked like Tharanga is gone, but from another, he appears to be safe. The TV umpire probably didn't have conclusive evidence and in fairness, that's the right call to make in such a situation. But terrific stuff from Mushfiqur Rahim nonetheless, that was some really swift glovework.
    The umpire has gone upstairs for a stumping appeal against Upul Tharanga. Rahim seems confident. Has he pulled off something special?

    2.1
    Mashrafe Mortaza to Kusal Mendis, no run, NOT OUT! A rather poor review in hindsight, even to the naked eye that looked like it was going down leg. Angling in on a length on middle and leg, raps Kusal Mendis on the pads as he attempts to flick. Mortaza appeals but the umpire is unmoved. After a long hard talk with his teammates, he decides to review it. It goes upstairs and it shows the ball to be going down leg. Mendis survives.
    Bangladesh have gone upstairs to check for an LBW appeal against Kusal Mendis. Seems pretty close to the naked eye.

    Mashrafe Mortaza to Danushka Gunathilaka, out, OUT! MORTAZA STRIKES IN THE VERY FIRST OVER! A dream start for the away side, and the skipper has got the breakthrough early on. Bowls it on a back of a length on leg, it's going away first but then comes back in. Raps Gunathilaka on the pads and the umpire raises his finger within no time for the lbw appeal. Bangladesh celebrate but Danushka after talking to his captain, decides to review it. It goes upstairs and replays show the ball to be clipping the bails and so it's the umpire's call. The decision stays and that's the first wicket down for the Islanders.

    COMMENTARY

    End of over

    SL234-all out (45.1 Ovs)

    Sri Lanka have had a disappointing outing in the field today. Were quite inconsistent and poor with the ball and some sloppy efforts in the field did not help their cause either. The injury to Suranga Lakmal was an added blow to them. But, in today's time, a score of 300-plus is not so difficult to chase down. A good start for them and with the dew coming in, things could very well get interesting. Join us shortly for the run chase.
    A phenomenal batting display from the Bangladesh side. Scoring 324 runs, that too after losing the toss, is not an easy feat by any means. But, in Bangladesh's defense, Mortaza anyway wanted to bat first. Tamim Iqbal stepped up today with a big hundred. He first got things going with Sabbir Rahman, who scored a brisk fifty, and made a brilliant 90-run stand, and then put on a mammoth partnership of 144 with Shakib Al Hasan, who really took the attack to the Lankans as the veteran showed his class. Some late hitting from Mosaddek and Mahmudullah towards the end was enough to put more than a good score on the board.
    49.6

    45.3
    Suranga Lakmal to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, Back of a length delivery in the line of the stumps, Tamim mistimes his pull towards the fielder at long on for a single.

    Mashrafe Mortaza says that he would have wanted to bat first. Praises his guys for playing really good cricket. Adds that the players should be used to the conditions as most of them played the Tests as well. Ends by saying that they will want to have a really good start.
    Upul Tharanga says it looks a very good wicket and thinks the dew will come into play later. Mentions the surface looks quite dry right now. On never having a set playing XI, he says his players need to be prepared for whatever happens and can't think about the selection process. When asked about the record at this venue in the last few matches, he states he didn't notice anything of the sort and chose to field because of the conditions. Adds the one place they need to focus on is that they need to convert their starts into big scores.
    TOSS - SRI LANKA WIN THE TOSS AND ELECT TO BOWL FIRST! They have several changes in their side, the most noticeable of them would be that of Kusal Perera, who is missing out through injury. Bangladesh have more or less the same squad, so will have players already acclimatized to the conditions. Mehedi Hasan makes his ODI debut for the visitors.
    Pitch report - Russel Arnold doing the pitch report says that the deck is a hard one and on the drier side. Also feels that there are quite some cracks on the surface. Observes that there is no wind blowing. Opines that there should be dew later in the match. Ends by saying that he would put the opposition to bat first after winning the toss.
    Hello and a warm welcome to the coverage of the first of the 3-match ODI series between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in Dambulla. The visitors after their dream win in the second Test will want to emulate the same form as they head to the 50-over format and their favourite one as well. Sri Lanka, on the other hand will want to seek revenge with a comparatively inexperienced side. But the Lions in their own den, in the ODIs, can roar against any team in the world. Promises to be an exciting game of cricket. Stay tuned for the toss.

    End of over

    SL234-all out (45.1 Ovs)

    That's it from us. This emphatic win sees Bangladesh take a vital lead in the series. The next game is extremely important for both teams for different reasons. It takes place at the same venue on 28th March at 1430 local time (0900 GMT). Do join us for it. Till then, it's goodbye!
    Bangladeshi skipper, Mashrafe Mortaza says that it is very important to start a 3-match ODI series with a victory. States that they played the perfect game today and it is tough to lose after playing so well. Applauds his senior players for stepping up. Adds that they have the perfect mix of experience and youngsters in the team. Applauds Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan and Sabbir Rahman for their batting. Praises Mosaddek Hossain and Mahmudullah for their brilliant cameos in the end as well.
    Sri Lankan skipper, Upul Tharanga thinks now he should have batted first. States they controlled the game well in the middle with the ball and were good in the field as well but gave away 30-40 runs extra towards the end. Adds chasing big totals, it is essential somebody bats through and gets a big score. Ends by saying he will talk with his team about all these things and try to do better in the next game.
    Man of the Match, Tamim Iqbal says that he is not impressed with his conversion rate. Adds that he wants to improve his average and also help his team. Opines that Sri Lanka were bowling well at times but he got support from Shakib in the middle overs when required. Ends by saying that 300 was always on their mind and it was the heat which made life even difficult for him towards the end.
    Sri Lanka were absolutely toothless today, both with bat and ball. They were taken for runs earlier in the day by the Tigers to all parts of the park and now, fell prey to some good bowling. Winning the toss never really worked in their favour. Barring Dinesh Chandimal and Thisara Perera, nobody really put up a fight for them. Losing early wickets and then nobody really holding one end proved to be their undoing in today's game. It'll be something they'll especially want to look at for the upcoming games.
    One of the most comfortable wins Bangladesh will ever enforce on anybody. It's a testament to their hard work that they've done it on their opposition's soil. They put up a massive score on the board first courtesy a sublime ton from Tamim Iqbal and a couple of fifties from Sabbir Rahman and Shakib Al Hasan. Setting a target of 325, they continued that good work with the ball and cleaned Sri Lanka up for less than 250. Almost all the bowlers chipped in with the wickets and that will please skipper Mashrafe Mortaza more than anything else.

    Mehedi Hasan to Upul Tharanga, no run, NOT OUT! The benefit of the doubt goes to Upul Tharanga! It's flighted on a driving length just around off, invites Upul Tharanga forward to defend but the away turn beats the outside edge. Rahim collects the ball, whips the bails off in a flash and appeals instantly. The square leg umpire, who is standing at point, isn't sure and so, he goes upstairs. The third umpire has a look at it multiple times and after taking his time, signals it as not out. From one angle it looked like Tharanga is gone, but from another, he appears to be safe. The TV umpire probably didn't have conclusive evidence and in fairness, that's the right call to make in such a situation. But terrific stuff from Mushfiqur Rahim nonetheless, that was some really swift glovework.
    The umpire has gone upstairs for a stumping appeal against Upul Tharanga. Rahim seems confident. Has he pulled off something special?

    2.1
    Mashrafe Mortaza to Kusal Mendis, no run, NOT OUT! A rather poor review in hindsight, even to the naked eye that looked like it was going down leg. Angling in on a length on middle and leg, raps Kusal Mendis on the pads as he attempts to flick. Mortaza appeals but the umpire is unmoved. After a long hard talk with his teammates, he decides to review it. It goes upstairs and it shows the ball to be going down leg. Mendis survives.

    0.3
    Mashrafe Mortaza to Danushka Gunathilaka, out, OUT! MORTAZA STRIKES IN THE VERY FIRST OVER! A dream start for the away side, and the skipper has got the breakthrough early on. Bowls it on a back of a length on leg, it's going away first but then comes back in. Raps Gunathilaka on the pads and the umpire raises his finger within no time for the lbw appeal. Bangladesh celebrate but Danushka after talking to his captain, decides to review it. It goes upstairs and replays show the ball to be clipping the bails and so it's the umpire's call. The decision stays and that's the first wicket down for the Islanders.
    Danushka Gunathilaka has gone upstairs to review an LBW decision against him.
