Live scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Shakib Al Hasan’s powerhouse batting and inspired bowling performances from vice-captain Mashrafe Mortaza and debutant Rubel Hossain ensured Bangladesh beat Sri Lanka in the third match of the tri-series and, more importantly, secured a place in the final on Friday, where they will face the same opposition again.

In a must-win match for them, reduced by bad light to 31 overs each, Bangladesh restricted Sri Lanka to 147 before Shakib’s 92 off 69 balls completed the win. They were reduced to 11 for 3 at one stage but a fourth wicket stand of 91 between Shakib and captain Mohammad Ashraful helped them end the hopes of Zimbabwe, the third team in the competition, who missed out due to an inferior run-rate.
