Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka (BAN vs SL) 3rd ODI Highlights: Sri Lanka avoided being swept by Bangladesh in their one-day international series when it won the third match by 97 runs with a Kusal Perera century and Dushmantha Chameera’s maiden five-for on Friday.
Perera struck a 122-ball 120, including 11 fours and one six, to lead Sri Lanka to a respectable 286-6. The fast bowler Chameera then took 5-16 to undermine the reply by Bangladesh, which was all out for 189 in 42.3 overs.
The victory marked Sri Lanka’s first in the ODI Super League. “Badly needed win, but we lost the series,” captain Perera said. “My innings, I took calculated risks in the first 10 overs. Fifty, sixty (runs) is not enough for the team, so once I got set I changed gears to try and bat long. Our bowling department did a really good job.”
