Tigers made a review blunder
Everything was going to Bangladesh’s favour until thing started getting bad for them with a review blunder against Sri Lanka on Friday. After reducing Sri Lanka to 41-5 in the second ball of the ninth over Bangladesh wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim thought bowler Mahmudullah hit Kusal Perera on his pad and made a loud appeal for an lbw. He convinced skipper Sakib al Hasan to ask for a review, which later proved to be blunder. The replay showed that the ball never went close to Perera pad and only hit by his bat. The third umpire did not even ask for ball tracker or hot spot before upholding the decision of on-field umpire.

SL suffers Pradeep setback
Sri Lanka suffered a major setback while defending 160 runs as they lost pacer Nuwan Pradeep In the fourth ball of the third over. Tamim Iqbal swept away a low full toss of Amila Aponso towards short fine leg and Pradeep, who was fielding at that region, started to cramp straightway while trying to stop the ball. The 31-year old was carried off the field by the physio and substitute Suranga Lakmal, leaving Sri Lanka one bowler short. Pradeep could bowl only one over in the innings.

Nurul loses his calm
Bangladesh substitute fielder Nurul Hasan lost cool after the acuminous match that was nearly turned into turmoil after umpires had denied Bangladesh two no-balls in the final over. While Bangladeshi players were celebrating their dramatic two-wicket victory Nurul got involved in a heated exchange with Sri Lanka’s Thisara Perera. Other Bangladeshi fielders, however, intervened immediately to separate the duo and avoid a skirmish thereby.
