Sri Lanka wins 1st T20 over Bangladesh easily

After winning the Tri-Nation ODI series and Test series in the Bangladesh tour, the Sri Lankans continuing their domination over the home team with a convincing 6-wicket win in the first T20I.

Sri Lanka (From): Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Dinesh Chandimal (c), Niroshan Dickwella (w), Thisara Perera, Dasun Shanaka, Akila Dananjaya, Jeffrey Vandersay, Isuru Udana, Shehan Madushanka, Amila Aponso, Kusal Mendis, Jeevan Mendis, Asitha Fernando. The much-vaunted Sri Lankan strokemaker has been rejuvenated since being promoted to open the innings in Test cricket, making 196 and 68 against Bangladesh across the two recent Test matches, and he was dominant again here, striking eight fours and two sixes before, having taken 13 already off Afif Hossains over, holing out to long-off going for a third.

The demerit point will remain active for a rolling five-year period and if during this five-year period the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium reaches the threshold of five demerit points, then it will be suspended from staging any worldwide cricket for 12 months.

Five Bangladesh bowlers conceded over 10 runs per over and only one of the four debutants, left-arm spinner Nazmul Islam, was impressive with figures of 2-25.

Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah Riyad felt they were few runs short despite their record score.

Soumya Sarkar hit his first T20 half-century before he was out while Mushfiqur was unbeaten at 66 runs. "We have to try many things at that time", he added. Mendis may have alighted on his ideal position in the order, and across all formats. Sri Lanka's previous-best T20 chase of 176 came against Australia.

The second match of the series will be held in Sylhet on Sunday.
