Sri Lanka's Chandimal handed two-match ban for over-rate offence

As two suspension points equate to a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is, whatever comes first for the player, Chandimal has been suspended from his side's March 12 and 16 fixtures against India and Bangladesh respectively. I think they executed their plans, they expected what Sri Lanka's bowlers would do.

The wicketkeeper-batsman built crucial partnerships after openers Tamim Iqbal, who hit 47, and Liton Das, who made 43 off 19 balls, set up the chase with a brisk start.

Danushka Gunathilaka fell for 26 but a brisk 85-run partnership between opener Kusal Mendis (57) and next man in Kusal Perera laid the foundation for a 200-plus total. Along with the host team Sri Lanka, two guest teams Bangladesh and India have taken part there.

Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah has been fined 20 per cent of his match fee, with the rest of the side docked 10 per cent, after they were deemed to be one over short.

On the batting from, the two Kusals - Kusal Mendis and Kusal Perera are in fine form for Sri Lanka. Soumya Sarkar struggled to get runs on a flat pitch, scoring 24 off 22 balls but it seemed that the Lankan bowlers would pull things back.

Sri Lanka's charge was then briefly checked as Bangladesh introduced Mehedi Hasan Miraz in the seventh over that went for only three runs. The second leg of the tournament will begin of Monday now as the similar thing can happen again as the net run-rate will come into play. Later, it was Mushfiq's unbeaten 72 that steered Bangladesh to the shore and keep the competition for a final place open for all the three teams. When his time to bat came, Mushfiqur slammed four sixes and five boundaries during a smashing knock. Following Thursday's defeat against India, their captain Mahmudullah had spoken about batting "fearlessly".
