Twenty20 World Championship 2007

Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka beat Bangladesh by 64 runs

Sri Lanka Cricket team Bangladesh Cricket team Sri Lankan batsmen failed to fire, but the bowlers responded to the call and helped them post a 64 run win against Bangladesh in the Super Eights 'Group F' match of the Twenty20 World Cup.
Bangladesh bowlers' did well to restrict the explosive Sri Lankan batsmen to a modest 147 for 5 and gave themselves a good chance of winning the game, but their batsmen could not complete the task and were bundled out for just 83 runs in 15.5 overs. In 'Group F', Pakistan has won both their Super Eights matches and are through to the semifinals. They have a game at hand against Bangladesh. Australia and Sri Lanka have won one and lost one match and their face-off on Thursday will decide the second semifinalist from the Group. After being sent in, Sri Lanka lost their way against some tight and disciplined bowling from Bangladesh. But their bowlers stood counted and gave no sniff of victory to Bangladesh.
Chaminda Vass (2-14), Dilhara Fernando (2-21) and Sanath Jayasuriya (2-5) all chipped in with the ball. Bangladesh batsmen went down to some reckless hitting, and with wickets falling in heaps, they were never really in sight of a victory. In the end, it turned out to be a one-sided affair.
Aftab Ahmed (18) and Shakib-al Hasan (18) were the top scorers for Bangladesh. Fernando and Vass did not allow Bangladesh a good start and scythed through the top-order. Vass struck in the very first over and trapped Nazimuddin in front. Tamim Iqbal tried a big shot but was caught at the third man region by Lasith Malinga off Fernando. Aftab Ahmed and skipper Mohammed Ashraful tried to hit their way out, but did not succeed and Bangladesh were soon down to 4-31. Sri Lanka also fielded well and executed two run-outs as wickets kept falling at regular intervals.
Earlier, Bangladesh bowlers kept Sri Lanka on a tight lease and restricted them to a modest 147 for 5. Sri Lankan batsmen never got a chance to open up in the face of some disciplined and accurate bowling by Bangladesh. Mohammad Mahmudullah's four overs went for a mere 19, while Syed Rasel conceded just 26.
