In the second game of the ongoing Asia Cup 2023 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Sri Lanka easily defeated Bangladesh by five wickets.

With two points and a respectable run rate of +0.951, the Dasun Shanaka-led team now holds the top spot in Group B’s points standings.

Bangladesh lost their first three batters while batting first for just 25 runs. Shortly after, Shakib Al Hasan returned to the pavilion.

With 89 runs off 122 balls, Najmul Hossain Shanto maintained his position as Bangladesh’s top performer. Matheesha Pathirana took four wickets for Sri Lanka.

After losing three wickets for a total of 43 runs, the co-hosts also struggled to get going, but fifty-plus scores from Sadeera Samarawickrama and Charith Asalanka helped the team reach the target with 66 balls remaining.
