Bangladesh restricted Sri Lanks to 124 for the loss of 9 wickets after they won the toss and elected to field first in their first game of the T20 World Cup 2024 being played in Dallas, Texas.

Sri Lanka appeared on course for a strong total at 100-3 in 14 overs. However, successive breakthroughs by Bangladesh’s bowlers limited them to a modest score.

Leg-spinner Rishad Hossain and pacer Mustafizur Rahman stood out, each taking three wickets.

For Sri Lanka, opener Pathum Nissanka was the top scorer with 47 runs off 28 balls, featuring seven fours and a six.

Bangladesh captain Najmul Hossain Shanto said at the toss that the pitch looks dry.

“We would like to bowl first as we expect some seam and swing early on. Very important especially in this format, the top four have been doing a lot of hard work in the last few days,” he added.


Sri Lanka (Playing XI): Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis (w), Kamindu Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Wanindu Hasaranga (c), Angelo Mathews, Dasun Shanaka, Maheesh Theekshana, Nuwan Thushara, Matheesha Pathirana

Bangladesh (Playing XI): Tanzid Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Litton Das (w), Najmul Hossain Shanto (c), Towhid Hridoy, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Rishad Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Tanzim Hasan Sakib
