Taskin brought back into the attack. He starts with a swinging yorker, forcing Nissanka to jam it out. Nissanka closes the over with a double, with a cut shot which evades point.
- September 09, 2023 15:48SL 55/1 n 11 overs
Shakib continues and Kusal Mendis gives him the charge. Picks him over mid wicket for a four. This has been a strong start from Sri Lanka.

Spin from both ends now for Bangladesh. Nasum with the ball now. Mendis takes a single to start the over. He gives away just two more runs in the over.
- September 09, 2023 15:42SL 48/1 in 9 overs
Shakib into the attack for Bangladesh. He starts with a string of dot balls. Sharp stuff from the skipper. There is spin on offer in this pitch.
- September 09, 2023 15:39SL 47/1 in 8 overs
Hasan continue to trouble Lankan batters with his late movement. He provokes a play-and-a-miss from Nissanka. The batter responds with a silky cover drive which races away for a four.
Hasan goes full and Nissanka attempts another drive. It is uppish, but it runs away for four.
- September 09, 2023 15:35SL 39/1 in 7 overs
Kusal Mendis is the new batter and he defends against Shoriful for four balls, before whacking him straight back for a four.
- September 09, 2023 15:28WHasan scalps Karunaratne
Karunaratne gets into the act. First he carves Hasan to the midwicket fence with an on-drive. He follows it with a flowing straight drive.
But Hasan has the last laugh. He pitches one on middle and leg and swings it away from the left hander. Karunaratne can only nudge it to the keeper. Unplayable stuff from Hasan.
- September 09, 2023 15:26SL 26/0 in 5 overs
Taskin offers some width and Nissanka goes after it. It is uppish, but lands safely beyond the covers. Three runs taken there. It is an otherwise decent over from Taskin.
- September 09, 2023 15:20SL 21/0 in 4 overs
Hasan replaces Shoriful straight away. He gives Karunaratne room down the off side. It is slashed away for a couple.
Hasan too gives away a wide. On the good length next up. Under edge from Karunaratne and it lands short of the keeper.
- September 09, 2023 15:15SL 18/0 in 3 overs
Taskin too starts with a wide. He brings the line back in, forcing Karunaratne to defend with a straight bat. He takes a single and Nissanka is now up against Taskin.
The Bangladeshi pacer goes wide of the off stump and Nissanka is happy to leave them.
- September 09, 2023 15:11SL 16/0 in 2 overs
Shoriful starts with a wide. He then goes onto Karunaratne’s pads and he clips it away for his first four of the day. A single brings Nissanka back on strike. The right-hander is troubled by Shoriful’s left-arm pace, but he survives the over.
- September 09, 2023 15:05SL 8/0 in 1 over
Karunaratne and Nissanka begin the innings for Sri Lanka.
Taskin with the new ball. First ball - He angles one in from good length. Nissanka can get only an inside edge, which runs away for a four. Another inswinger from Taskin and this time it hit Nissanka on the pad. Umpire gives it out and Sri Lanka reviews. Looks a tad too high and it is missing the stumps. Nissanka survives. He celebrates his life with a crunching cover drive for a four. Eventful first over.

The smell of fresh paint and the blaze of the welding machine in the media box ahead of the Asia Cup Super Four match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo are ciphers for the eleventh-hour confirmation of the venue following heavy rains in the capital city last week.
And even though the skies cleared on the eve of the game, the teams lock horns under the shadow of the announcement of a reserve day for the India versus Pakistan clash on September 10, which left coaches of both sides surprised.
Bangladesh, however, will have little time to dwell on the politics of sport as it faces the host for the second time in just over a week in a must-win game.Read More
