Strong Start: Sri Lanka’s Innings at 279

Sri Lanka’s final score of 279 might not immediately grab attention when compared to the preceding matches at this venue. However, a keen observer would note the significant movement for the pacers during this game, setting the stage for an engaging contest.

Asalanka’s Masterful Performance Rescues Sri Lanka

Despite facing a challenging situation at 135/5 and the untimely dismissal of Mathews, Charith Asalanka exhibited an exemplary display of skill and determination. His exceptional century not only salvaged his team’s precarious position but also highlighted his confidence from the outset. Even with the loss of key wickets early on, Asalanka remained undeterred.

Exquisite Shots and Display of Intent

Asalanka’s calculated aggression was evident in his shot selection. Notably, his two lofted shots over mid-off off the bowling of Shakib were exquisite, showcasing his impeccable timing and technique. Similarly, the well-timed six off Tanzim over long-on revealed Asalanka’s ability to read the ball early, a testament to his exceptional form. Remarkably, his aggressive approach was apparent from the beginning, even when he was at a mere score of 1, reflecting his unwavering determination.

Bangladesh’s Resilience and Efforts

While Sri Lanka’s recovery was commendable, Bangladesh’s performance deserves acknowledgment. Taskin’s impressive display with the new ball, despite not securing any wickets, set the tone early on. Shoriful’s successful pursuit for wickets reflected the team’s resilience, while Shakib and Mehidy’s disciplined bowling during the middle overs ensured a tight contest. However, Tanzim’s relatively expensive spell might have raised some concerns for the Bangladesh side.

In conclusion, Sri Lanka’s Charith Asalanka’s stellar performance not only led his team to an impressive recovery but also underlined his potential as a rising cricket star. While Bangladesh’s efforts were commendable, Asalanka’s brilliance on the field remains the highlight of this engaging encounter.

Charith Asalanka: It’s always good feeling when you are getting a hundred and I’m feeling happy now. (On Mathews’ timed out dismissal) My point of view it’s not good for the spirit of the game. After that, Dhananjaya came and we had a good partnership. I love to have a partnership with Dhananjaya because he is a right-hander and I’m a left-hander and he always scores quickly. Credit should go to the pitches, because we can hit the ball through the line. When I was batting, I was looking for 300 but unfortunately, I got out in the 49th over. But, I think we have got enough.
