In the second one-dayer against Sri Lanka in Dhaka, Mushfiqur Rahim scored 125.

Bangladesh knocked Sri Lanka out of the 3-match ODI series with a 103-run victory.

With an emphatic 103-run win in the rain-affected second one-day international, Mushfiqur Rahim guided Bangladesh to their maiden series victory over Sri Lanka in all formats. Having been given the choice to bat first, the Bangladeshi wicketkeeper-batsman turned what could have been a 74-4 defeat into a full victory for his team after the match at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka was finished. In the revised chase, the Sri Lankan side managed to post only 141 runs in the last 40 overs. This puts them at a comfortable 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

Shakib Al Hasan got the final two wickets, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Mustafizur Rahman each took three.

“A fortuitous circumstance: Winning two games. It is possible that we have not yet played the perfect game “Tamim Iqbal said, “I’m captain of the Bangladesh national team.”

“With many wickets lost in the middle, and the target of 200 increasingly difficult, Mahmudullah and Mushy helped guide us to victory.”

A stand of 87 between Mahmudullah Riyad and Mushfiqur Rahim resulted in Mushfiqur Rahim becoming the hero as he scored his eighth ODI century and set up a 97-run partnership with Mahmudullah Riyad, who made 41.

In his first over as a bowler, Dushmantha Chameera got the batsmen out two times, leaving Tamim to score 13 and Shakib Al Hasan to have zero.

The Bangladeshi innings ended in 48 overs when Mushfiqur ran out Chameera in the 49th over after he had scored his eighth ODI century following another rain delay.

In the previous match, Mushfiqur, who scored a match-winning 84, stood firm alongside Mahmudullah to keep the attacks coming.

However, after registering 54 in the opening ODI, Mahmudullah continued to display his form but fell short of the fifty when Lakshan Sandakan returned figures of 3-54.

Mushfiqur went for another innings total of 48, in the eighth wicket stand with Mohammad Saifuddin, who was run out on 11.

After Saifuddin took a hit on the helmet, Taskin Ahmed replaced him as the team’s concussion sub.

Bangladesh, who dominated on day one by scoring 33 runs more than their opponents, were always in the lead once their new pace bowler, Shoriful Islam, removed their captain, Kusal Perera, from the game in the sixth over of the innings.

In their first encounter, opening batsman Danushka Gunathilaka made 24 runs for the side that was already one down while fellow opener Pathum Nissanka made 20 for the side that had never lost to Bangladesh in any bilateral series.

As a result of the rain, the game was halted for approximately 40 minutes, at which point the match officials made a revised D/L target of 121-9 in 38 overs.

Shoriful got hit for two sixes in the final two overs, which allowed Sri Lanka to cut their defeat by only 20 runs.

“It’s extremely disheartening. As a result, our middle order crumbled, and the lack of recent experience weighed heavily on us. We must have a serious discussion, “The Sri Lankan captain said, “My name is Prasanna.”

The conclusion of the final round is set for Friday at the same location.
