Sri Lanka wins bilateral series after 44 months

The Sri Lankan cricket team has not been able to perform well at the international level in recent years as a number of off-field controversies and fitness issues in the team have not let them put up consistently substantial performances.

After having a miserable World Cup campaign in England this year, the Sri Lankan side has come back strongly in the bilateral series against Bangladesh at home. The Islanders have won the 3-match ODI series after winning the first 2 games against the quality Bengal Tigers. This is Sri Lanka’s first series victory in 44 months i.e., since September 2015.

Avishka Fernando starred for the home side as he scored a match-winning 82 off 75 balls, helping Sri Lanka chase down the target in the 45th over. In the bowling department, pace bowlers excelled as they took 4 wickets while limiting the flow of runs on a batting friendly pitch.
