Bhanuka Rajapaksa peeled off four fours and a six in his 14-ball 31 and nearly everyone from the Sri Lankan batting unit contributed with crucial hits right through. Eventually they get over the line against Afghanista with five balls to spare in the Super 4 stage. While Bhanuka Rajapaksa was going strong at one end, Danushka Gunathilaka too reverse sweept Rashid for a boundary and then got into a war of words with the bowler. Rashid had the last laugh though, getting him bowled for 33. But Sri Lanka remained in the hunt heading into the final three overs with just 20 needed.
