  • November 06, 2023 21:54
    Bangladesh wins by 3 wickets

    Tanzim comes in at nine and takes Bangladesh just seven away from a win as he chips one straight over the bowler’s head for a four

    Tanzim shuffles across his stumps but Theekshana adjusts it accordingly and bowls to his legs, it takes a deflection off his pads and runs away for yet another FOUR! Just three needed

    On the pads and Tanzim just guides it past the keeper for a FOUR and THAT’S IT, BANGLADESH WINS BY 3 WICKETS! It’s highest succesful run-chase against Sri Lanka in ODIs

  • November 06, 2023 21:49
    BAN -268/7 in 40 overs; Theekshana gets Miraz

    Hridoy from one end has been accelerating scoring at a constant pace while Miraz is finding it difficult to middle it. Bangladesh needs just 13 from 61 balls and a loss here means Sri Lanka will have no chance of making it to the semifinal

    Shortly after, Miraz lofts one straight into the hands of Asalanka! Theekshana strikes for the second time!

  • November 06, 2023 21:41
    Theekshana gets Mahmudullah

    GONE! THEEKSHANA GETS the danger man MAHMUDULLAH! Can Sri Lanka turn the tables? Mahmudullah was cleaned up with a surprise quick yorker from Theekshana

  • November 06, 2023 21:36
    Madushanka strikes

    Madushanka gets his third victim. This time it’s Mushfiqur, who chops it onto his stumps. Towhid Hridoy is in at seven and he gets into action right away as he smacks Madushanka straight for a SIX!

  • November 06, 2023 21:24
    BAN 224/4 in 35 overs; Bangladesh in control despite double setback

    The new entrants are keeping Bangladesh’s momentum going. Within a span of three overs, they’ve managed to score a six and a couple of fours

    Mahmudullah, the leading run-scorer for Bangladesh in the tournament, slaps two fours off consecutive deliveries. Bangladesh well on course to chase this!

  • November 06, 2023 21:11
    Heartbreak for Shanto

    Shanto reaches 90 with a single off Theekshana’s ball. A World Cup ton within arms reach for the 25-year-old


    Shanto b Mathews 90 off 101 (4s-12)

    Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim are the new pair in the middle

  • November 06, 2023 21:03
    Shakib departs

    SHAKIB WALKS BACK! MATHEWS GETS HIS REVENGE! Celebrates the wicket pointing fingers at his wrist as a symbolic gesture of “your time’s up”. Shakib gets a leading edge on what looked like a cutter and perished in the end as Asalanka completes a very good catch

    Shakib c Asalanka b Mathews 82 off 65 balls (4s-12 6s-2)

  • November 06, 2023 20:55
    150 partnership between Shakib and Shanto; BAN 206/2 in 30 overs

    A 140-ball 146 partnership between Shanto and skipper Shakib to keep Bangladesh very much in contention to chase down the target of 281. Just as we speak, Shanto closes in on his ton as he slaps Rajitha for a FOUR. And that makes this partnership worth 150 off just 140 balls

    Shanto gets a quick single after that four and now, Shakib gets into the back with three consecutive boundaries, the first one was a massive six over square leg and the next two he drove it straight to collect a couple of fours! Proper demolition job this from the Bangladesh duo

    Shakib: 81* off 60 balls; Shanto: 86* off 93 balls
  • November 06, 2023 20:32
    Shanto-Shakib keep the scoreboard ticking

    Shanto keeps the run-flow in tact as sweeps de Silva’s ball towards short fine for a FOUR! Seven came from that over

    A drama-filled game: First, there was a confusion on whether the game will be played due to Delhi’s dangerous amount of pollution. That was followed by Mathews’ controversial dismissal. And now, the Sri Lankans have surrounded the umpire demanding a new ball because of the amount of dew present!

  • November 06, 2023 20:26
    BAN 161/2 in 25 overs; Shakib smashes 50

    Another short ball against Shanto and once again, he picks the length early. Thumps it away for a four and that is his fifty. Brilliant knock from the left-hander.

  • November 06, 2023 19:40
    BAN 81/2 in 15 overs

    Chameera goes short and Shakib brings out a spectacular pull shot. Almost behind the keeper. SIX DEEP INTO THE STANDS!!! Full on the off side and Shakib slices it and it goes over point for a four.

    Away from the pitch, Shanto and Sadeera exchange a few words. Things are heating up at the Kotla.

    Chameera goes full and Shanto and smack it straight back for a four. Sri Lanka will be worried by their slow over-rate.

  • November 06, 2023 19:13
    BAN 57/2 in 10 overs

    Shakib is the new batter for Bangladesh and he receives quite a reception from the Sri Lankan players. Angelo Mathews is there at short cover to have a word.

    Shakib and Shanto take their time to get into the game. The run-rate is in their favour, for the time being.

  • November 06, 2023 18:59
    In an otherwise inconsistent campaign for Sri Lanka in this edition of the World Cup, Dilshan Madushanka has been a stand-out performer

    Dilshan Madushanka - a bright spot in Sri Lanka’s lacklustre World Cup 2023 campaign

    Being associated with Sri Lanka cricket for years as a coach, Chaminda Vaas first saw Dilshan Madushanka as a net bowler at the U-19 level and was impressed by his skills.

  • November 06, 2023 18:55
    Madushanka strikes!

    Short from Rajitha and Litton tonks it away for a six. Rajitha goes length and Litton dances down to smack it over mid off for a six. Litton needs medical attention with what seems like a cramp. But he is back to the crease soon.

    Madushanka continues his spell. Fiery in-swinging yorker catches Litton off guard. No hesitation for the umpire to give it out LBW.

    Litton Das lbw b Madushanka 23 (22b 2x4 2x6)

    Tanzid starts on the front foot. Clips Madushanka over covers for a four. Then chips one straight back for another four.

    Litton too gets into the act. Hits Theekshana for a four in the spinner’s first ball of the day.

    But Tanzid’s stint is quickly wrapped up. Wide from Madushanka and Tanzid chases after it. Easy catch for Nissanka.

    Asalanka continues to slaughter bowlers, this time Tanzim is his victim. Back of the length delivery, Asalanka waits and smacks it over deep square leg for a SIX

    SL 213/6; De Silva falls

    200 up for Sri Lanka as Asalanka gets a quick single. Shortly after, De Silva switches gears with a huge six off Shakib. Wonderful fightback from Sri Lanka

    de Silva has to walk back! Miraz strikes! A good cameo comes to an end as the batter attempts to come down the track and misses to read the turn. Mushfiqur stumbles behind the stumps but manages to uproot it before de Silva could do anything. Maheesh Theekshana comes in at eight

  • November 06, 2023 12:23

    The floodlights burned bright at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Sunday night. The smog, a scourge for the residents of the Indian capital at this time of the year, was visible.

    Under lights, the beleaguered Sri Lankan players were getting ready for a training session ahead of their World Cup clash with Bangladesh. Earlier, in the day a Bangladesh fan, who had flown to India to follow his team, wanted to know: “Is the weather gloomy?”

    It was his first time in Delhi, though he had followed his team in other cities like Kolkata and Mumbai, so he was astonished to find that the fogginess in the afternoon was caused by poor air quality.

    The air quality here is so terrible and hazardous that it has become a cause of concern and debate on the eve of the match between these two struggling Asian sides.

    Bangladesh has just two points on the table, having lost six matches in a row. Its only win was against Afghanistan in the opening match seems like ages ago.

    Although the Lankans have one extra win, they may not be in a great space of mind after getting thrashed by India by 302 runs in their previous match. But then, they aren’t the only ones who have been shoved aside by Rohit Sharma’s troops.

    With the top seven teams – and the host Pakistan – qualifying for the Champions Trophy, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have still something to play for, apart from pride. Both teams should be keen to put their poor shows behind them.

    The Islanders must be hoping the impressive young left-arm seamer Dilshan Madushanka continues his form as one of the leading wicket-takers of the tournament, and Sadeera Samarawickrama delivers with the bat again.

    As for Bangladesh, it needs to up its game considerably in all departments to arrest the slide.
