Over 10 || Score 66/1 (Chandimal 34; Jayasuria 19); Target 148
A quite little period of consolidation from either side. Sri Lanka have added 14 runs in the last three overs, without losing a wicket, to keep themselves a good sight of the target.
82 runs required from 60 balls.
But, Bangladeshis will also be happy with the ever increasing asking rate. But they need wickets.
Over 7 || Score 52/1 (Chandimal 25; Jayasuria 14); Target 148
Busy over. Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza finally brought himself into the attack, and soon found himself in a spot of bother with Dinesh Chandimal welcoming him with a four, through the backward point area.
It was followed by four singles.
Sri Lanka need 96 runs from 13 overs.
