Camaraderie was a big part of the Bangladesh versus Sri Lanka Asia Cup contest. Bangladesh’s coach Chandika Hathurusingha and his assistant Ruwan Kalpage got congratulatory hugs from the opposition bench after his team’s 23-run win. The two Sri Lankans while masterminding the downfall of their own country had helped Bangladesh rise in stature in the limited-overs format.

With five overs left, the asking rate had soared above nine per over. The slow-going in the middle overs was understandable, given that Umar Akmal and Shoaib Malik had to do a major repair work, chasing 130 for victory. At 17/3, Pakistan’s reputation was at stake.
