Asia Cup: How bowlers led Sri Lanka to a comfortable win over Bangladesh


A clinical all-round bowling performance was followed by a mature Sadeera Samarawickrama and Charith Asalanka 78-run stand as Sri Lanka eased past Bangladesh in the Asia Cup Group B game in Pallekele on Thursday. Marred by injuries, a depleted Lankan bowling attack produced a top quality performance, putting the focus away from the absence of their star bowlers Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera. The 20-year-old Matheesha Pathirana starred for the co-hosts of the tournament as Bangladesh folded for a lowly 164 in the 43rd over.
