India the penultimate over, Bangladesh needed 16 off 8 balls when he hit one rows back into the stands and his six turned the game into Bangladesh's favour. This was the fourth highest run chase in T20Is and Bangladesh's best.

Earlier, Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das had given the Tigers a solid platform by putting on 74 for the opening wicket. That was the moment of the match from the Bangladesh player after he had played stunning knock to help his team chase down 215, a record chase for them. Kusal Perera and Mendis scored half-centuries as Sri Lanka posted 214 for the loss of five wickets.

The Nidahas Trophy tri-nation Twenty20 tournament involving Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and India.

Ever since their win in Bangladesh across the three formats, they looked like a revitalized camp.

A single win would quell worries, Tamim had said after the first practice session in Sri Lanka. It was a day/ night competition where Bangladesh won the toss and made a decision to bowl first.

In the previous two matches of the tournament, the teams who won the tosses sent the rivals to bat first.

The local team Sri Lanka started the match very destructively and dominated the Tigers bowlers completely. Sri Lanka piled up 70 runs off the first six overs, including 22 runs off Taksin Ahmed's second over, but could not continue the momentum in the middle overs. They needed 51 off 26 balls, nearly two runs per ball.

Captain and part-time spinner Mahmudullah Riyad checked the run flow with two wickets in an over, claiming Mendis and Dasun Shanaka (0), both batsmen caught by Sabbir Rahman.

Upul Tharanga provided the late assault, smashing 32 not out in 15 balls to help the hosts post the highest score in a Twenty20 worldwide at the venue before Bangladesh bettered that mark. Tamim and Liton gave us a good start.

Skipper Mahmudullah took two wickets in as many overs by giving 15 runs.
