  • So that is it from this game! Sri Lanka have sealed the series with a game to go. Bangladesh though still have pride to play for. The third and the final ODI of the series is played on the 31st of July at 0230 local (0900 GMT). Till then, goodbye and take care!
  • Sri Lanka skipper, Dimuth Karunaratne, says they did really well and they are happy they won a series after a long time. States he wanted to bat first but he can't control the toss and he needed to do well in the game. Mentions the pacers did well and the spinners too were very good. Further adds Akila Dananjaya did really well on his comeback. Ends by saying the lines and lengths he bowled was very good and he built the pressure and that is exactly what they wanted.
  • Bangladesh skipper, Tamim Iqbal says they wanted to bat and added a spinner as they knew this wicket was going to spin. Admits that 270 would have been a good score for on this wicket as it was not a 300 pitch. Further admits that it has been a disappointing series for them. Feels they have had their moments and adds that the 15 members that are here they have full confidence in them and he does not want to talk about players that are not here. Tamim feels that they have not been able to capitalize when they were on top of the game.
  • MAN OF THE MATCH, AVISHKA FERNANDO. On the change in batting position, Fernando says that he is happy to bat wherever the team requires him to. Admits that he is disappointed to miss out on a hundred but hopes to get it in the final ODI. On the pitch, Avishka tells that it got slower as the game progressed.
  • Mathews is now down for an interview. On being asked how it feels after winning a home series after so long, Mathews admits that they have not played good cricket for the last couple of years and further admits that they have disappointed the fans. Thanks them for still coming out in numbers and supporting them. On being asked what was the talk between him and Mendis out in the middle, Angelo tells that they had lost three wickets and the plan was to bat till the end as they knew they had a lot of time.
  • Earlier in the day, it was the Lankan bowlers who set up the victory. They bowled with a lot of discipline. Akila Dananjaya was the pick as he finished with a two-fer. For Bangladesh, it was Rahim's effort which single-handedly took them to 238 but it proved to be an easy chase for Lanka.
  • Bangladesh needed early wickets if they were to defend this total but they did not get any. Their bowlers were guilty of bowling either too short or too full which did not help them get assistance from the surface. Mehedi and Rahman did pick 1 and 2 respectively but it was after the damage was done. Overall, the Bangladesh players will not be happy with their bowling performance not only in this game but in the last one too.
  • The new ball was going to be crucial as the wicket was said to get slower as the game progressed and the Lankan openers came out all guns blazing. Especially Fernando, who hit the bowlers at will. The two added 71 and provided the ideal start. Perera then came in and kept the good work going with Fernando. The latter fell 18 short of a ton but he surely did his job. Perera too soon followed but Mathews and Mendis, with a 96-run stand, took Lanka over the line. Angelo Mathews got to yet another ODI fifty.
  • That was too easy for Sri Lanka! Two games and both have been won by them quite convincingly. In the first one they batted first and defended with relative ease and in the second one, they chased a total which many believed was under par.

It is around off, Fernando looks to flat bat it over mid off but he ends up slicing it to the right of the man there. Bangladesh skipper, Tamim Iqbal there moves to his right and takes a simple catch. End of a brilliant knock from the young Avishka.

  • 19.5Overthrow! Shorter and outside off, Perera looks to guide it down towards third man but it goes off the gloves. A single is not taken. The fielder though scores a needless direct hit at the striker's end. The ball deflects away from the fielder backing up and a single is taken.

  • 19.2Flatter and on off, Perera looks to defend but it goes off the outer half through point for one.

Perera comes forward and slogs it towards deep mid-wicket where the ball flies just above the fielder's head and the ball goes for a four. It has been a good partnership for the Lankans and would want to continue to see them throughout the end.
  • 18.6An appeal but it is an ambitious one! This is shorter around leg pole. Fernando looks to flick it over the leg side but misses to get hit on the pads. 117/1
  • 18.5One more single as Perera pushes it to mid off.
  • 18.4How easy was that? A cutter outside off, Fernando waits for it and gently guides it down to third man for one.

  • 17.1WIDE! Strays down the leg side. Perera tries to flick but cannot put bat on it and it is given a wide.
  • Change of ends for Taijul Islam.
  • Drinks Break! Sri Lanka are cruising along here. They are looking strong at the moment and they need 134 runs off 198 balls with 9 wickets in hand. Bangladesh need to pick wickets here. There is good amount of spin and grip available on the deck but they need to correct their lines. Only wickets can pull this game in their favour here.
  • 16.6On middle and leg, AF flicks it but straight to mid-wicket. 10 runs came off the over. 105/1
  • 16.5FOUR! Poor stuff from Mosaddek. It was a loopy delivery on leg stump and Avishka moves towards off side and sweeps it past the fine leg fielder for the second boundary of the over.
  • 16.4Shorter in length and outside off stump, Perera cuts towards cover and gives Avishka the strike.

  • 15.1Floated on off, Kusal defends it off the front foot.

  • 11.6Turn and bounce on this one. Flighted around off, Kusal plays it with the spin towards point. Good over for Bangladesh. 4 runs off it but more importantly a wicket off it. 73/1
  • 11.5Floated on middle, Avishka strokes it to long on for one.
  • 11.4Perera is off the mark straight away. Flatter on off, Kusal punches it to the left of mid off and takes a single.
  • Kusal Perera is the new man in. He scored a ton in the last game and anything similar would see Sri Lanka win.
  • 11.3OUT! Bowled! Bangladesh have their much-needed breakthrough here. The ploy to replace Mustafizur with Mehedi has worked. Mehedi comes around the wicket and bowls a quicker one on middle and leg, Karunaratne hangs back and looks to play it off the back foot. The ball though skids onto him and deflects off his pads onto the stumps. This might just be the opening Bangladesh wanted. 168 needed in 231 balls now.

  • 10.3Slower through the air on off, Fernando plays it late but finds short third man. Avishka wanted a single but that was never existent there.
  • 10.2Another loopy delivery, Fernando plays it back to the bowler.
  • 10.1Loopy delivery on middle, Avishka drives to cover for a dot ball.
  • Powerplay 2 time now! 4 fielders can be placed outside the 30-yard circle now till the 40th over. The way Sri Lanka are batting, Bangladesh needed to spread out the field.
  • 9.6Length ball on off side, Fernando just guides this one towards the third man region and keeps the strike. Sri Lanka end the first powerplay in dominating fashion as they have scored 69 with both of their openers still at the crease and going strong. Bangladesh need to take some quick wickets here. 69/0
  • 9.5Length ball on middle and off, Fernando plays it towards point.
  • 9.5WIDE! Bouncer but way too high. This is bowled on middle and leg, hitting it hard on the deck. Maybe just too hard as the ball goes way over the head of Fernando to the keeper.

  • 8.6Once again it is on the pads, Avishka looks to paddle it but the ball goes wide of the keeper off his pads and they take a leg bye. 57/0
  • 8.5On the pads, AF flicks it but finds mid-wicket.
  • 8.4FOUR! Beautiful from the batsmen this time. Tossed up on off, Fernando comes down the track and lofts it inside out over extra cover for a boundary.
  • 8.3Beauty! Absolute beauty from Islam! Flighted around leg. It spins in to the right-hander. Fernando looks to defend but misses and the ball hits him on the thigh pad of his back leg. There is a huge appeal but the umpire turns it down. They think about the review but opt against it. Height seemed to be an issue and Hawk Eye later on confirms that.

  • Another change in bowling. Tamim has given the ball to his strike bowler, Mustafizur Rahman.

The ball is pitched just outside off and nips back in after pitching, Dimuth plays at it but just outside the line of the ball. Shafiul is interested in taking the review but the skipper, Tamim Iqbal refuses straight away. The replays also show that there was an inside edge on the ball. Overall a good decision by the umpire as well as skipper Tamim Iqbal.
