Mushfiqur leads from front in Bangladesh's record win

Nidahas Trophy 2018: Sri Lanka will battle against Bangladesh

Preview: Hosts Sri Lanka will aim to continue their recent domination against a beleaguered Bangladesh when the two teams meet in the Nidahas Twenty20 Trophy in Colombo on Friday.

Nuwan Pradeep trapped Das lbw to earn a breakthrough for Sri Lanka but Mushfiqur, who hit four sixes and five fours, batted with goal to force an outcome which meant all three teams in the tournament have one win each. The second match is between India and Bangladesh where Bangladesh lost the match.

Sri Lanka were asked to bat first after Mahmudullah won the toss but that decision proved costly for Bangladesh as home openers Kusal Mendis and Dhanushka Gunathilaka took them to past 50 quickly.

Team Bangladesh is not as one of the top rated team in T20I competition but they are good in ODI format and placed on 7th position on ICC ODI ranking.

Germany backs European Union decision to respond to United States steel tariffs-spokesman
President Donald Trump's decision to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, with most urging the United States to reconsider. Mr Trump said the tariffs, which will come into effect after 15 days, will not initially apply to Canada and Mexico.

The tournament, timed to commemorate the host island's 70 years of independence, stays alive with all three teams having won a game each. Sri Lanka is hoping to win this match.

Dasun Shanaka and Dinesh Chandimal fell cheaply but Upul Tharanga helped Sri Lanka score 17 runs in the 17th over with the help of two boundaries and a six.

The openers, Kusal Mendis and Danushka Gunathilaka, began well but failed to make a substantial contribution, something they will look to change on Friday. He the fourth ball of the final over towards midwicket and ran a single, limping. Tamim and Liton gave us a good start.

Mustafizur Rahman (3/48) and Mahmudullah (2/15) were the most successful bowlers for Bangladesh. Tamim Iqbal made 47 off 29 deliveries. And Mushfiqur played a knock of his life, unbeaten 72 off 35 balls, to lead Bangladesh to that win and then dance which was a delight for everyone at the stadium. Rahim was briefly supported by skipper Mahmudullah who scored 20 as the asking rate came down to 7 an over. Basically Mushfiqur Rahim played very well.
