Series review

Bangladesh's all-round brilliance continued in a rain-hit second ODI after comfortably thumping the visitor in the first ODI. Mushfiqur Rahim who is in red-hot form, led his side once again from a collapse to smash a 127-ball 125, helping his side post 246 on the board. The Sri Lankan side then tottered in the chase, with none of its batsmen crossing the 25-run mark.

New world no.2 bowler, Mehidy Hasan and pacer Mustafizur Rahman picked three apiece as the Lankans were bowled out for 141, handing the host a mammoth 103-run victory.
