Bangladesh needed 12 from the final over but Mustafizur Rahman (2) was given run out in the second ball which triggered a wave of wild protests both from Mahmudullah and the team bench beyond the ropes. "I think we are trying to focus on our processes and routines, that has given us good results till now".
They will be more wary of the Bangladeshi players, particularly after Shakib's re-entry.
Yes, ugly. Bangladesh cricketers are lucky to get away with minor punishment for collectively showing grievance against umpire's decision and nearly walking off the park.
Sri Lanka skipper Thisara Perera was disappointed to not able to defend 160, which he felt as a reasonable target. I was telling them to play.
Cousins pairs with Vikings with titles in mind
But after Griffin's career got derailed by injuries, Cousins gained steam as Washington's starter. Not every situation is like that. "That's what I did and it worked out well for me".
Karthik wary of Bangladesh power in sub-continent: India's wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik Saturday said Bangladesh are always a tricky opposition and that his team would bring high intensity to the Twenty20 tri-series final between the two sides on Sunday. Karthik thus, touched upon rotating the strike and how important a role it would assume on the final day as well. Odd ball turns while some balls go straight. It has a massive effect on fielding in the second match we played. Washington Sundar has been a blessing in disguise for India and the way he is bowling in powerplays that saw him dismiss Liton Das, Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim the other night will be a decisive moment in the game once again. With terrible performances throughout the triangular series, captain Rohit Sharma took centre stage in the 5th match against Bangladesh. If you see there are so many Sri Lankan players who play in our leagues, in the BPL too, we have some very good relations with them. Sri Lanka were 41 for 5 in the ninth over but Thisara (58) and Kusal (61) had other ideas as the duo flayed the Bangladesh bowlers at the later stages of their innings, and put on a crucial 97-run stand. They are quite experienced, so we will try not to make it comfortable for them. The reason behind the celebration has its roots in an incident that took place earlir this year.
"The second match that we played, I thought we fielded the poorest, against Bangladesh".
"We've set a certain benchmark for ourselves and we need to keep hitting that benchmark every time we step on to that field". They celebrated it by doing the famous 'cobra dance'(Which is so much popular in Indian Weddings), and Shakib took his shirt off in happiness to a win he was about to call off a few minutes ago. "India have been extremely impressive after their wobbly start and Bangladesh have battled really hard and shown their experience at critical times", wrote Jayawardene.
