The dressing room stands up to applaud Kusal Mendis’ half-century. It’s been a fine innings but the right-hander has had his fair share of luck. It has come at a crucial time for the islanders as Ebadot Hossain wreaked havoc on Sri Lanka early into the chase. He bagged his third wicket in his second over, pitching it short as Danushka Gunathilaka mistimed one, only for Taskin to come in running from fine leg to take an excellent catch. The Bangladeshis in the crowd went absolutely berserk after Hossain’s twofold strike.
