Sri Lanka thrash Bangladesh by 8 wickets in 1st ODI

Sri Lanka beat Bangladesh by eight wickets on the Duckworth/Lewis method in the 1st ODI.

Tillakaratne Dilshan cracked an unbeaten 113 as Sri Lanka thrashed Bangladesh by eight wickets in the first of three one-day internationals on Saturday.

Sri Lanka required 238 to win in 41 overs under the Duckworth/Lewis method after a lengthy stoppage because of a floodlight failure at Mahinda Rajapaksa Stadium. The hosts reached the target with more than five overs to spare.

Dilshan hit 11 boundaries in scoring his 15th ODI century. Kumar Sangakkara made 63.

Tamim Iqbal smashed an entertaining 112 and Nasir Hossain cracked 73 not out to lift Bangladesh to 259-8 after being sent in to bat first.
