TL;DR: Ice-cool Mahmudullah drives Bangladesh to final

Bangladesh eventually beat Sri Lanka by 2 wickets to set up the final vs India

But India won all three matches that followed, including a defeat of Bangladesh on Wednesday that sent them to the tri-series championship match.

Sri Lanka were 41 for 5 in the ninth over and they were staring at a meagre total but Thisara and Kusal had other ideas as the duo flayed the Bangladesh bowlers at the later stages of their innings.

Bangladesh's players may want to forget it, but you can be sure the International Cricket Council, especially Chris Broad, the match referee, will be taking a long, hard look at events.

Sri Lanka had came out to bowl with momentum on their side.

Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan gave the first breakthrough by claiming opener Danushka Gunathilaka (4).

The Bangladeshis - led by Mahmudullah - then pulled off mission impossible. Eventually, Shakib relented and play was allowed to resume after the fracas had eaten up several minutes.

The agency's chief, Pierre Kraehenbuel, said expectations in the region were high that donors would step up. Refugee women protest against the USA for withholding $65 million from Palestinian aid programs.

However, Sri Lanka fought back to get a few quick wickets and put Bangladesh in a spot of bother. This time it was Kusal Mendis - generally a composed and easy-going player - that was furiously pointing and yelling at someone in the Bangladesh group.

"The improvement is coming but probably not quick as we would have liked."It is different conditions and they are trying to get it right."Walsh, who has been working with Bangladesh's bowlers since 2016, was assigned coach for the tri-series after Chandika Hathurusingha quit". He believed that one of the on-field umpires had initially called a no-ball when Udana delivered the second bouncer of the over, but had then reversed his decision. Sri Lankans are great friends.

"Washington has been courageous to take the ball from me, not afraid to flight the ball, and he's very clear on what he wants to execute". We saw the leg umpire signalling a no ball and that's why we were complaining. We are all human, we should take it in the chin and move forward. "Many things happened that shouldn't have happened". I was overjoyed. Excitement was there.

"I knew the new batsmen would find it tough". I will be careful. The confusion was because it was the first bumper, but we should forget it, happens in the game,"he said after the match". The two boards have great relations. I don't want to discuss on this anymore.
