CWC 2015 - SL Demolish Bangladesh To Regain Form

#SriLanka v #Bangaladesh, #MCG
26th Feb 2015

Touted as the #AsianBattle between the Lions and Tigers, the match did not live up to its expectations. SL clearly the better side and won the match comfortably by 92 runs.

#TilakratneDilshan and #KumarSangakarra stroked beautiful centuries to muster a mammoth 332 for 1 in their 50 overs. Dilshan being the more dominant partner of the two. All bowlers taken to the cleaners by these two outstanding batsmen.

The Banglas were never in the run chase really.
#TamimIqbal was bowled in the first over and they never really looked like being in the game after that. Some late order hitting by #ShakibAlHasan, #MushfiqurRahim and #SabbirRahman only delayed the inevitable for a while. #LasithMalinga came back to form with 3 wickets. Lakmal and Dilshan plucking 2 each.

An all round performance from Dilshan earned him the man of the match award.
Well done!
