Cobra Mushfiqur snatches victory for Bangladesh record chase against Sri Lanka

Mushfiqur Rahim has put up a magnificent show in scoring 72 runs off 35 balls in Bangladesh’s record successful chase of 215 to win over Sri Lanka in the third T20 match of the Tri-Nation NIDAHAS Trophy Tournament.

Kusal Mendis’ 74 off 48 after Kusal Perera’s 57 off 30 followed by a late 32-run cameo of Upul Tharanga helped the hosts amass the huge total of 214 for six at R Premadasa International Cricket Stadium in Colombo on Saturday.

Mushfiqur took the winning run in the last over with two balls remaining. He hit five boundaries and four sixes to become the Player of the Match.

Bangladesh opened their innings flying with a 74-run stand with Liton Das’ 43 off 19.

Pressure mounted on the Tigers in the chase of the huge total when they lost the other opener Tamim Iqbal (47 off 30).

Soumya Sarker helped Mushfiqur ease the pressure with a steady 24 off 22.
