After the India win, captain Dinesh Chandimal said the players are feeling good about their game and also gave credit to coach Chandika Hathurusingha, who was earlier with Bangladesh. Invited to bat after a drizzle delayed the toss by 15 minutes, Sri lanka were off to a flying start with Mendis putting on 56 runs for the opening wicket with Danushka Gunathilaka (26). The off-spinner struck again in the same over, dismissing Dashun Shanaka (0). If Sri Lanka are found guilty of another offence of similar nature in a T20I in the next 12 months with Chandimal as captain, he will receive between two and eight suspension points. But Rohit's form remains a cause of concern for India as he made a total of 49 runs including a couple of ducks in his last five T20Is. For Bangladesh Mustafizur took three wickets so far.

Riding on Mushfiqur Rahim's 72 not out, the visitors achieved the target of 215 runs with two balls remaining.

Needing nine off the last over, Mushfiqur slashed Thisara Perera for a boundary to inch closer to victory. Soumya Sarkar struggled to get runs on a flat pitch, scoring 24 off 22 balls but it seemed that the Lankan bowlers would pull things back.

The former captain was criticized by the fans and experts alike after he had resorted to a premature celebration in the final over of the game against India.

On the bowling front, Jaydev Unadkat needs to be more consistent. The pacers bowled alright and Rubel Hossain stood out with two wickets. They will have to come up with a fresh strategy against the Lankans.

Mahmudullah was over the moon to have won, and said: "I think it was a game of quite a bit of nerves".

"To be honest, from the beginning we thought we could win".

Skipper Mahmudullah had also repeated Tamim's message following Bangladesh's defeat at the hands of India.

"It was wonderful to see and good inspiration for us".
