A no-ball at the end and a dramatic ending to the game! #SL 184/8 after 19.2 overs | #SriLanka win by 2 wickets! 
Sri Lanka are into the Super 4s
Bangladesh are out of the Asia Cup

That was a suicidal run! Chamika Karunaratne is run out! He was running for everything and Shakib hits the bulls eye. SL: 171/8 in 18.5 Overs
The heat is getting to the players and now Ebadot, who has five balls left in his over, is cramping up. He does resume bowling but concedes a boundary on the third ball of the over. 17 needed of 9 balls. No its even worse– its a no ball. Its a free hit. Oh dear! Karunaratne on strike and he gets two. So 14 off 9

Mahedi does the trick! Shanaka is gone and Sri Lanka are seven down. Score after 18 overs, SL: 159/7 | Sri Lanka need 25 runs in 12 balls
Image
Sri Lanka need 34 off 18 with 4 wickets in hand. Mustafizur has bowled out. Shanaka is still batting. Bangladesh have one over of Ebadot and two overs of spin, let’s see how Shakib uses his bowlers.
There was one fielder in the deep and Hasaranga has managed to pick him out. SL 141/6 after 16 overs| They need 43 from 24 to win. The match is getting interesting.
Yet another stellar catch from Taskin. Kusal Mendis is gone for 60 (37). Mustafizur picks up the wicket. BAN: 131/5 in 14.3 Overs
The 50-run stand between Kusal and Shanaka comes with a six
Image
Rajapaksa is gone as he went for the ramp over third-man but hit it straight to the throat of third-man. SL: 80/4 after 10 overs. Sri Lanka still need 104 runs from the final 10 overs.
Taskin takes a stunning catching running about 20 metres infield, Danushka Gunathilaka falls. Sri Lanka 67/3 in 7.4 overs
Image
Ebadot Hossain strikes twice in one over. Asalanka and Nissanka are back in the dugout. Score after 6 overs, SL: 48/2
Image
Mushfiqur has put down a sitter. Mendis gets an outside edge which flies to the right of the keeper and Mushfiqur dives to take the catch, the ball hits his fingertips and pops out. Poor! Score after 2 overs, SL: 9/0
Nissanka and Kusal Mendis are at the crease. Nissanka is on strike. Mustafizur will open the attack. Remember, the Highest target successfully chased down in T20 Internationals in Dubai 180 by Afg vs UAE in 2016
Bangladesh have posted a solid 183/7 in their 20 overs. Will be tough for Sri Lanka to chase this down. Srilanka need 184 runs to qualify for super four’s. Terrific start from Miraz. Afif maintained the run rate in the middle order and Mosaddek Taskin with the final flourish. Taking pace off the ball looks like the way to bowl in this pitch.

There has been a bit of a pre-game heat between the two teams Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. The first shot was fired by the Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shank who said, “Afghanistan has a world-class bowling attack. We know Fizz [Mustafizur Rahman] is a good bowler. Shakib [al Hasan] is a world-class bowler. But apart from them, there is no world-class bowler in the side. So if we compare with Afghanistan, Bangladesh is an easier opponent.”
That obviously didn’t go well down in the Bangladesh camp. The fiesty former player and current team director Khaled Mahmood took a swipe a day before. “I don’t know why Dasun made that comment,” he said. “Definitely Afghanistan has a better squad. He said we have only two bowlers in our line-up, but I don’t see any bowlers in Sri Lanka. At least Bangladesh has world-class bowlers like Mustafiz and Shakib. They don’t even have that.”
Bangladesh made a very good 183 to walk the talk of Khaled Mahmood. Can Sri Lanka chase down to back up their captain Shanaka’s big words?
Afif Hossain departs as Sri Lanka breaks the half-century stand. Afif Hossain – 39 off 22 balls. Dilshan Madushanka finishes his 4 over spell for just 26 and the wicket of Afif Hossain. BAN: 144/5 in 16.5 overs
It was the shot of the innings. Mahmudullah’s inside-out gorgeous beauty against Hazaranga. It’s a shot he plays very well. The mind goes to a 2010 series in Bangladesh when as a newcomer he unfurled it against the legspinner Amit Mishra to make everyone sit up and notice him. This and the wonderful slog sweep that he plays, quite reminiscent in style to Hansie Cronje’s version. He unfurled that slog sweep too, just a ball before the inside-out four in fact. Like Mushfiqur Rehman, Mahmdulllah  is also on his last lap, there has been criticism in Bangladesh about his continuing presence but with BPL, their T20 league, failing to throw up fresh exciting names, he has got a chance to perhaps bow out with the T20 world cup. If he can keep pulling out the slog sweeps and the inside-out drives, and turn back the clock, he might well get a good farewell. Time will tell.
Like our man at the ground in Dubai Sandip G wrote couple of days back about the way he went down to Afghanistan’s Mujeeb-ur-Rehman, “ Shakib himself did not learn from the old mistakes as he was yet again terminated by his carrom-ball in an identical manner,” he continues to combust in familiar ways. Tonight, against Dheekshana, yet one of those spinners who squeeze out the ball in various ways, he fell in a familiar way. It was an off spinner that floated in from round the stumps, and Shakib made room for a big inside-out hit over wide mid-off region – thinking it won’t turn. But then, it did to fall on the stumps. We have seen that before from Shakib, a sense of pre-determination pushing him into mistakes that a batsman of his quality can avoid. Before he fell, though, there was a lovely counter-attack against Karunaratne, lapping him for two successive fours. Pity about how he continues to find old ways to fall.
