Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka (BAN vs SL) 2nd ODI Highlights: Bangladesh beat Sri Lanka by 103 runs (DLS method) to take a 2-0 lead in the three-ODI series. Earlier Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal won the toss and opted to bat first at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. Bangladesh made two changes to the squad which won the series-opener by 33 runs, giving left-arm fast bowler Shoriful Islam a debut and picking all-rounder Mosaddek Hossain to replace Mohammad Mithun. However, Taskin Ahmed walked in as concussion replacement in the second innings.

Batting first, Mushfiqur Rahim’s 125 helped the hosts post a total of 246 on the board. Chasing 247, Sri Lanka suffered a major batting collapse as they could only manage to post 141/9 after 40 overs. Mehidy Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman picked up three wickets each.

Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI Highlights:

21:35 (IST)25 May 2021
Bangladesh win big

Isuru Udana provided some late fireworks hitting two sixes off Shoriful Islam. After the DLS revision, Sri Lanka required 119 runs from two overs which was earlier 121 runs from 12 overs. Bangladesh register an unassailable lead by 2-0 beating Sri Lanka by 103 runs by DLS method. SL 141/9 after 40 overs

21:03 (IST)25 May 2021
Covers come off

Bangladesh will be looking to wrap this up early and register a big win. It will be interesting to see whether DLS comes in to play here or not. 

20:39 (IST)25 May 2021
Rain plays spoilsport again

With just one wicket to win, rain has played spoilsport again. There is no way Sri Lanka are coming out on top here with 121 runs needed from 12 overs but we will have to wait for the rain to stop or the cut-off time. SL 126/9 after 38 overs

20:31 (IST)25 May 2021
Mustafizur preys on tail

Mustafizur Rahman is preying on the tailenders now. Lakshan Sandakan hands an easy catch to Tamim Iqbal at mid-on. The Bangladesh skipper has taken three catches so far. Bangladesh will be looking to wrap this up quickly. Dushmantha Chameera in the last batsman in. SL 122/9 after 37 overs

20:23 (IST)25 May 2021
Quick wickets for hosts

Wanidu Hasaranga and Ashen Bandara fail to revive the run chase as they lose their wickets to Mehidy Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman in successive overs. Hasan finishes with three wickets from 10 overs. This run chase is all but over now. Sri Lankan tailenders will try to reduce the margin of loss now. SL 118/8 after 35 overs

19:58 (IST)25 May 2021
Shanaka departs

The situation has turned bad to worse for Sri Lanka. Dasun Shanaka plays a reckless slog sweep to lose his wicket. Mehidy Hasan takes his second wicket, Shanaka departs for 11 from 19 balls. SL 106/6 after 30 overs

19:51 (IST)25 May 2021
100 up!

Dasun Shanaka hits a six off Shakib Al Hasan. Sri Lanka need a big partnership here to get the run chase back on track. Wanidu Hasaranga's brilliant hitting in the previous game will give the visitors some confidence to take the game deep. Isuru Udana is capable of scoring rapidly as well. SL 102/5 after 28 overs

19:37 (IST)25 May 2021
Shakib strikes again!

Shakib Al Hasan is the perfect man for Bangladesh to operate in the middle overs. Dhananjaya de Silva stays deep in the crease and pays the price for it. He departs after scoring 10 runs from 21 deliveries. Sri Lanka suffer a middle-order batting collapse. The required run rate is now well over 6 runs per over. SL 90/5 after 25 overs

19:29 (IST)25 May 2021
Another departs

Bangladesh are on top now. Mehidy Hasan has managed to trap Kusal Mendis in front of the stumps. Mendis is out for 15. Ashen Bandara is the new batsman in and he gets off the mark with a boundary. SL 81/4 after 22 overs

19:21 (IST)25 May 2021
SL's top order fails

Sri Lanka are clearly struggling in this run chase. Pathum Nissanka was unable to rotate the strike or find boundaries at regular interval and the left-arm spinner capitalises on the pressure put on him. Nissanka goes for a big shot but top edges it. An easy catch for Tamim Iqbal though he juggled for a bit. He departs for 20 from 36 balls. Kusal Mendis and Dhananjaya de Silva are the two batsmen in the middle now. SL 73/3 after 20 overs

18:51 (IST)25 May 2021
Mustafizur strikes

Mustafizur Rahman gets the better of Dansuhka Gunathilaka. The opener hits it straight into the hands of Shakib Al Hasan who was fielding deep in the off side. Gunathilaka falls for 24 from 46 balls. Both the openers are now back in hut. Bangladesh will like to slow down the scoring rate here and try to force Sri Lankan batsmen into playing reckless shots. SL 53/2 after 14 overs

18:34 (IST)25 May 2021
Gunathilaka struggles to score

Danushka Gunathilaka's scoring rate has suffered after the first wicket fell down. Meanwhile, Pathum Nissanka has got off to a good start having hit two boundaries already. Sri Lanka would like to keep wickets in hand here otherwise after a modest start it will be a tricky run chase. SL 38/1 after 10 overs

18:12 (IST)25 May 2021
Islam strikes

Kusal Perera tries to take the aerial route but finds Tamim Iqbal at mid-off. Shoriful Islam strikes for Bangladesh in his third over. Perera departs after scoring 14 runs from 15 deliveries, not the ideal start Sri Lanka would have wanted. Earlier, Danushka Gunathilaka got a second chance as Bangladesh fielders did not appeal for a caught behind off Taskin Ahmed's bowling. SL 24/1 after 6 overs

17:58 (IST)25 May 2021
Openers hit boundaries

Concussion replacement Taskin Ahmed gets hit for a boundary by Danushka Gunathilaka in his first over. In the next over, Kusal Perera finds the fence too. SL 16/0 after 4 overs

Sri Lanka's run chase of 247 is now underway. So far, it has been just singles for the Sri Lankan openers in the first two overs. Meanwhile, Taskin Ahmed has been named Saifuddin's concussion replacement as he was hit on the helmet during his 30-ball 11. 

17:23 (IST)25 May 2021

Mushfiqur Rahim's 125 helps the hosts cross the 200-run mark in the second ODI. Bangladesh are all out for 246. Sri Lanka need 247 runs off 50 overs to level the series.
