In a roller-coaster 6th T20I, the visitors managed to held on their nerves and beat the hosts by 2 wickets.

On this occasion, Kusal Mendis was seen to yell at the Bangladesh players and gesture animatedly, while Tamim Iqbal put an arm around his shoulder and attempted to calm him down. He bowled well against Sri Lanka as well.

For Bangladesh, pacer Mustafizur Rahman scalped two wickets. He first got rid of Liton Das for a duch, and then got Sabbir Rahman stumped for 13. They needed 12 runs in the last over and he got them over the line.

Sri Lanka: 1. Danushka Gunathilaka, 2.

With required run rate creeping up, Soumya Sarkar and Mahmudullah found themselves in the middle. Dasun Shanaka, 7. Jeevan Mendis, 8.

Shakib was expected to miss the entire Nidahas Trophy tri-series, as he recovered from a finger injury suffered in the finale of an ODI tri-series in January.

He then beckoned Mahmudullah and Rubel Hossain off the field, only the batsmen appeared very reluctant to follow those instructions, and ambled half-heartedly towards the boundary as numerous Sri Lanka fielders took their places. The victor of Friday's match will face India in that finale - but if the game is washed out by weather, Sri Lanka will get the nod to face India due to a superior net run rate. This was followed by high-intensity drama, with a livid Shakib calling his players off the field.

The final round robin match came to a tantalising close with Mahmadullah smashing a six off the penultimate ball to reach 160-8 to claim the two-wicket win, but the victory came in the wake of a dispute that almost cost them the game.

After the matters were sorted out, Mahmudullah hit the third ball of the final over for a boundary and then hoisted Isuru Udana for a six to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

Chasing 160 after Sri Lanka had staged a recovery thanks to fifties from Kusal Perera (61) and Thisara Perera (58), Tamim got off in grand style by crashing a short ball from Nuwan Pradeep to the deep backward point boundary and straight-driving the bowler to the long-off fence. The Pereras added 97 for the sixth wicket. Thisara and Kusal batted brilliantly.

Mahmudullah, was was Man of the Match, agreed that it was the no-ball that set things off.
