Sri Lanka A 312 (Shehan Jayasuriya 142, Shammu Ashan 60, Sunzamul Islam 4-104) beat Bangladesh A 167 (Zakir Hasan 42, Prabath Jayasuriya 3-12, Shehan Jayasuriya 3-47) and 107 (Soumya Sarkar 28, Malinda Pushpakumara 6-46) by an innings and 38 runs

Malinda Pushpakumara's six-wicket haul blew away Bangladesh A by an innings and 38 runs within three days in Sylhet. Sri Lanka A finished 1-0 winners in the three-match series after the first two matches were drawn.

Left-arm spinner Pushpakumara finished with nine wickets but it was his second-innings haul that wrecked Bangladesh, who were bowled out for 107 on the third morning. They started the day on 57 for 1, trailing by 88 runs, but lost Mizanur Rahman in the second over of the day. Soumya Sarkar too fell soon after, stumped for 28, leaving the side 61 for 3. The other batsmen didn't offer much resistance as Bangladesh lost their last eight wickets for 49 runs.

Shehan Jayasuriya was the Man of the Match for his 142 off 155 balls, which had 15 fours and four sixes in Sri Lanka's first-innings 312. Bangladesh had been bowled out for 167 on the first day.

Jayasuriya also took five wickets in the game with his off-breaks.
