Bangladesh v Sri Lanka : tri nations Final : Dhaka : 16-1-09

Sri Lanka 4-3 chasing 152

Their batting really is struggling these days
 
Tri-Nation Tournament in Bangladesh - Final - Bangladesh v Sri Lanka

Thought this deserves its own thread rather than the Aus-SA game. Especially since the Bangladeshi bowlers and fielders are doing a fantastic job of making a a game out of it.

Bangladesh made a poor 152, but they have responded well in the field to have SL in a spot of bother at 3/5 in 6 overs.
 
Make that 4/5 in 6.2 overs ... unbeleivable batting here from SL.
 
Whoops I just created a thread too ... mods can we merge the two
 
Thushara and Sangakarra need a bit of a rescue act to get SL rolling.
 
Bangladesh is on their way to make history. Winning a tri series. This will be the first time ever to beat a recognized Test nation two times in a row. If Bangladesh blows this one up that's it.

You would have to say they are in the driving seat at the moment. Sangakarra is the key really!
 
And Thushara is out ... unbeleivable scorecard this is reading!!!

Never. This will be their first time. SL is going to be humiliated. No doubt about that.
 
lol there weren't any thread for this match a moment ago..guess u're all jumping in bd team bandwagon now huh
 
sangakara still there..and he's due...crapinfo reported he's out for a moment and got me all excited...alas it was other guy =(
 
Unbelivable stuff from Nazmul. I though he was the worst bowler in Bangladesh. I rated him lower than Farhad Reza. Thanks for proving me wrong son.

and this is why i dont rate SL !!!


SL is domestic bully. But even by their standard it is well pathetic. Don't worry. They will rediscover their form against us. Last time when SL played in India they were thrashed 6-1. This time they come with better bowling resource. But their batting is shockingly out of form.

In seconds two threads were created
 
5/15 after 10 overs ... Sangakarra hit the first boundary of the innings last over!
 
Current partnership - 9 runs. Highest partnership of this innings so far.
 
SL used to dispatch minnows with ease in one dayers. If Jayasuriya retires they will start losing more one dayers than they used to win.
 
At one point Bangladesh was not even going to make the final. Now they are about to win. It is going to be a fairy tale ending.
 
Still not over yet boys ... Sangakarra still the key (I thought he was out but cricinfo had him mixed up with Thushara). And Mubarak just was dropped.
Current partnership 12 runs.
 
I think Srilanka has to take a crash course from Salman Butt to play against Bangladesh :p
 
The ODI series against SL is looking more and more like it should be a stroll in the park for Pakistan.

BCCI must be wondering what they have wasted their money on!
 
Maharoof is next in and then its a long tail with Kulasekara, Mendis and Murali.

Murali is a pleasure to watch when he's hitting his unorthodox shots :p
 
Couple of boundaries to Mubarak in this over ... time for a change ... 5/30 in the 14th over.
 
sri lanka 30/5, they can still win this. they need to get sangakkara and mubarak now, otherwise i don't think it'll happen
 
Got a feeling it is slowly getting away from Bangla ... they need another wicket soon, and will be interesting to see if the new bowler coming in can maintain the pressure.
 
Good counter-attack from Mubarak. 15 off 16 balls. SL looking a bit more stable at 5/35 after 16 overs.
 
Why isn't Dilshan playing? After he destroyed Bangla in the tests you'd figure he'd be a shoe-in...

Weird right. Actually seems like Dilshan was not in great form before this series hence he was excluded from the squad. But his performance in BD has earned a recall for Pakistan tour.
 
31st over Sangakkara 38 not out. SL 71 for 6 .. amazing contrast between this match and One dayers we have these days.
 
Bangla need a wicket, only 59 runs required and 4 wickets in hand.
 
SL taking this to the end ... SL need 44 from 49 with 4 wickets in hand. Though SL should prob win it from here.
 
42.2 Naeem Islam to Sangakkara, no run, big appeal! Comes round the wicket, he traps him on the pad on the forward prod, the ball holds its line, that was very close
Could that have been it!
 
Bangla probably back on top now with Kulasekara and Maharoof out there now!
 
Was the match fixed? Still no power play. Maharoof is taking first ball single lol what the heck is going on.
 
India's slaves really struggling against the B'Deshis!

35 needed off 30 balls / 2 wkts remain
