Bangladesh beat Sri Lanka to Reach Finals of Nidhas Trophy

Not just 'reading' the batsman's mind there is a lot more to Washington Sundar's success as an off-spinner

Mahmudullah blasted Bangladesh into the Nidahas Trophy final with a magnificent innings in a highly-charged finish to seal a dramatic two-wicket win and knock hosts Sri Lanka out in Colombo.

Bangladesh stormed into the final in the Nidahas Trophy tri-nation T20I tournament eliminating hosts Sri Lanka by two wickets with one ball remaining in the 6th match at R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Friday.

Emotion was in the air in the last over of the virtual semifinal to a point that Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladesh skipper who was returning from an injury, nearly called off his batsmen in protest to an umpiring decision.

Opener Tamim Iqbal led Bangladesh's reply with a fluent 50 but they lost wickets in quick succession until Mahmudullah took responsibility to get them over the line.

There was further tension on the field and Bangladesh coach Courtney Walsh called for calm as his side celebrated setting up a showdown with India on Sunday.

Fuming Shakib Al Hasan felt two bouncers were bowled in the final over which were both over shoulder height, neither of which were given.

Sri Lanka had came out to bowl with momentum on their side.
