Sri Lanka T20 Team

Driven by Kusal Mendis’ 55-ball 86 and Nuwan Thushara’s fifer, Sri Lanka enrolled a determined 28-run prevail upon Bangladesh in Sylhet to seal the three-match T20I series 2-1, on Saturday.

The Mendis show

Put in to bat, the early piece of Sri Lanka’s innings was overwhelmed by Kusal Mendis as the other hitters neglected to offer adequate help. Dhananjaya de Silva, after a sluggish beginning, expanded a catch to mid wicket in the fourth finished. Kamindu Mendis excessively succumbed to a run-a-ball 12, toe-edging a success to long off. By the thirteenth over, Mustafizur Rahman represented the excusal of Wanindu Hasaranga, on a 13-ball 15, whose lap shot fell in the possession of the third defender.

Through this, Mendis conveyed Sri Lanka along without any assistance. He began by putting a short and wide conveyance by Taskin away for a limit in the second finished. He then hurled Mahedi Hasan for a limit over mid off and afterward followed up swiping Muzstafizur for a four. And afterward the sixes began to rain. Rishad Hossain was flung over the long off limit while Taskin’s short ball was pulled over in reverse square leg. Mustafizur’s more slow conveyance was pulled over fine leg. Not long after raising his 50 years, he crunched Mustafizur for one more greatest straight down the ground.

Indeed, even after Hasaranga’s excusal, Menids kept his butchery on, pursuing Mahedi and Shoriful Islam – the last option excused Charith Asalanka inexpensively. Be that as it may, after two or three prohibitive overs, Mendis fell while hoping to go for a top dog, getting rushed by Taskin and top-edging a draw to mid wicket.

What occurred after his excusal?

Dasun Shanaka moved the force along by crunching several limits and a six in the passing overs, yet neglected to track down help from the opposite end, with Sadeera Samarawickrama and Angelo Mathews unfit to speed up. Shanaka’s 9-ball 19 demonstrated helpful as Sri Lanka posted 174 for 7.

How did Bangladesh get moving in the pursuit?

Not excessively well. Indeed, even before they could settle themselves, they had lost around 50% of the side inside the powerplay. The breakdown might have been set off by Dhananjaya de Silva – who had Litton Das top-edging a swipe to mid wicket – however it was Thushara who caused the genuine harm. Najmul Shanto was pushed over by an approaching conveyance and Towhid Hridoy was tidied up by an away going conveyance. He then, at that point, caught Mahmudullah legbefore with an away pleasure seeker to pack a full go-around in the fourth over of the pursuit.

Before sufficiently long, he pushed over Soumya Sarkar with an approaching conveyance and left Bangladesh reeling at 25 for 5 toward the finish of the powerplay.

Was there any restoration from that point?

There was. In any case, not really early. To exacerbate the situation, Wanindu Hasaranga had Jaker Ali caught legbefore in the principal bundle of the 10th over. The restoration accompanied Roishad pursuing the spinners. He smoked consecutive sixes on the on side off Hasaranga in the eleventh over and afterward cleared Theekshana for one more six in the following over.

Mahedi Hasan endeavored to move the assault along in the following over by crunching two limits off Shanaka yet his innings was cut shot in the following over by Hasaranga. Taskin likewise furnished a few firecrackers with the bat, yet it was Rishad pursuing a solitary fight. He crushed three additional sixes off Theekshana in the fifteenth over, yet it was too tall an errand for him. He raised his lady T20I fifty with another six yet his 30-ball 53 littly affected Bangladesh’s destiny. Taskin made a blustery 21-ball 31, however Bangladesh continued to lose wickets as they were in the end packaged out for 146.
