Asitha Fernando chaperoned Sri Lanka's attack on the final day with a Player of the Match performance, his brilliant six-wicket haul in the second innings of the Dhaka Test guiding the visitors to a 10-wicket win against Bangladesh, helping secure crucial ICC World Test Championship points. The Bangladesh lower order offered no mitigation after Liton Das and Shakib Al Hasan showed the stomach for a fight. The hosts lost their last five wickets for just 13 runs, ending their innings on 169, setting Sri Lanka a measly 29 runs to chase.
