Choosing to bat first in the two-match T20 series, Bangladesh started poorly before Soumya Sarkar and Sabbir Rahman steadied the ship. However, multiple wickets thereafter rocketed the ship and Bangladesh never really got the momentum for a big score from then on. Mosaddek Hossain and Mahmudullah scored 30-plus scores each. With 156 runs to chase, Sri Lanka were never really perturbed with Kusal Perera scoring strongly from the word go. Despite late hiccups, hosts went over the line with six wickets left and seven balls to spare. With the win, Sri Lanka have taken an unassailable 1-0 lead in the series.
