Batting first, Sabbir Rahaman's 54-ball-80 helped the home team reach a competitive 147 for seven in 20 overs.

In reply, Sri Lanka looked like chasing the target easily till the first 10 overs but suffered a dramatic batting collapse as they could only score 124 for eight in the end.

Mustafizur Rahaman (1/19 in 4 overs) again bowled brilliantly at the death using all the variations in his armoury to help his team notch up their second win in the tournament. Skipper Mashrafe Mortaza kept three overs of his best bowler at the back end which proved to be really useful.

Spinners Shakib Al Hasan (2/21 in 4 overs) and Mahmudullah Riyadh (1/14 in 2 overs) complemented Mustafizur well as their six overs produced only 35 runs and also got them three wickets.

The loss of four wickets for 16 runs in between the end of 11th and 15th over was the turning point for the 'Tigers', as the home team is fondly referred to in this part of the world.
