After angry outburst, Bangladesh beat Sri Lanka to play India in final

  • Bangladesh defeat Sri Lanka after nearly forfeiting in umpiring controversy

Sri Lanka would want to avenge their loss against Bangladesh where the visitors chased a massive score of 215 runs to win the first game.

With Sri Lanka out of the final, a relatively empty stadium is likely to greet both the finalists tomorrow and Karthik said crowd presence makes massive difference in a player's performance.

Skipper Shakib, miffed by the on-field incidents, helped raise quite a few eyebrows when he signaled Mahmudullah and non-striker Rubel Hasan to get back to the dressing room even as four balls were left to be bowled. A Bangladesh substitute who had come on to the field with drinks had become involved in an argument with the Sri Lanka players.

The duo was fined 25 percent of their match fees and received 1 demerit point each, the ICC announced on Saturday. "I understand that it was a tense and an edge-of-the-seat match with place in the final on the line, but the actions of the two players were unacceptable and can not be condoned as they clearly went overboard", ICC match referee Chris Broad said. Rahman, along with Mushfiqur Rahim, stabilised the innings with a 35-run stand for the fourth wicket in 5.1 overs.

WHAT AN OVER! It is Rohit Sharma all the way as he smacks two sixes and one four in this over.

A confident Team India takes on a resilient Bangladesh in the final of the Nidahas Twenty20 tri-series, here on Sunday.


Meanwhile, Shakib al Hasan has not made any changes to the Bangladesh team, and are playing the same eleven which beat Sri Lanka by two wickets recently. "We must move forward from this", Shakib told reporters. If you don't think about pressure, it is not pressure.

"You can t expect more than that in a T20 game, so much excitement, emotion", said Shakib after the win. After six matches, we are all set for the final between India and Bangladesh at R Premadasa. "Rather, let's think about a bat versus ball contest".

This is the second time India and Bangladesh are squaring off in a tournament final.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has warned its players the unsavoury scenes which marred their Nidahas Trophy win over Sri Lanka on Friday were "unacceptable". "In sub-continent conditions, (Bangladesh) are a very good team", Karthik said. Although it was a tough game, at last, we won it. What are you doing?' I'm sure that's going to be there. In fact, tension between the two teams had been high throughout the series, owing partly to the "nagin" (cobra) dance - a kind of celebration that begun during Sri Lanka's tour of Bangladesh earlier in January.

"The second match that we played, I thought we fielded the poorest, against Bangladesh. India have been extremely impressive after their wobbly start and Bangladesh have battled really hard and shown their experience at critical times", wrote Jayawardene.
