The two captains share the ODI trophy. Mohammad Isam and Andrew Fernando will dissect the match in their post-match pieces, but I am done with my duty. It's been a pleasure. Devashish Fuloria signing off. Ciao ciao.
Mushfiqur Rahim: "It's a huge win for us, it was a challenge for us to do well against big teams, so very happy with the effort. We have not been in such situations before and that's why the boys were panicking, but we pulled it off. Nasir is one for the future and he showed it again."
Angelo Mathews: "We were disappointed as we had runs on the board. The bowling let us down today, we batted brilliantly even though we lost out way in the middle. Senanayake has been brilliant, Kula had an off day today, but he is a great bowler for Sri Lanka."
Dilshan is also the Man of the Match and the Man of the Series:"I am in great form since the Test matches, but today being in the losing side has hurt. I like this pitch, I think this is the best wicket in Sri Lanka. Marvan has helped me tweak some issues in my batting and that has helped me in my batting."
Thirimanne gets an award for hitting two sixes, Dilshan gets a prize for fastest fifty, Abdul Razzak wins a smartphone for being a smart player, Nasir wins an award for being Bangladesh's MVP
What a thriller here! If not for Nasir, I think this match was going very quickly towards Sri Lanka. Bangladesh have won the match by three wickets and this is their best result in a bilateral series in Sri Lanka. It didn't look like it was going to get this close an hour ago when they needed 105 off 80 balls. Bangladesh started frantically and then, they started giving it all away. But for Nasir's 33, it could have been a very different story. So Bangladesh share the ODI trophy after the second match was washed out. All in all, that rain-break actually spiced up the contest and I was shaking here while watching it, so apologies if I had got carried away..Stick around for the presentation ceremony please.
Shad: "a very pakistan-esque victory there. taking a commanding position and turning it into a heart stopping, mad, nonsensical display of panic. glad they came up winners though."
zak: "I am recommending Nasir as BD batting coach!!"
uza fazzy: "Tissara Perera is well tested under pressure with his bowling and we witnessss.. :("
Orko: "Congrats BD!! Doesn't matter how you win so long as you win right? Still I feel most of us would have preferred for this win to be cleaner. This alone says how much BD has improved, we fans now want them not just to win but win well!"
chaminda: "Credits to Pallekele grounds staff not Thisara, remember B'desh !"
Mahtab Alam: "Funny how good things happen to BD team when Tamim is left out. First test drawn and this match won with the exclusion of Tamim. Either Tamim is bad luck or Mominul is good luck."
Omer: "Took late lunch at NY to watch what happens after the rain..totally worth it !!!"
Ron: "See why I was so happy to see you Devashish, you commentated in two Tournaments(ODI) and BD did wonders in both... thanks buddy"
AJ: "Nasir Hossain for BD President!"
8 off 10... This is now in control, or at least this is what I think is in control. You never know what the batsmen are thinking
12 off 11...
17 off 12, Nasir on strike, Gazi has joined him.. Thisara is the man
Last ball of the over, can he take out another one...?
Animesh Pai: "Malinga has bowled such an over that it has pushed both teams equally closer to a win."
Two dot balls in the over. Ziaur takes strike
Mid-on, mid-off up in the circle
naleef: "Spin is working for SL, Can some one tell Angelo to bring Jeven Mendis to the attack?"
23 off the last three. One of which will be bowler by Malinga. Here comes Malinga now, this is a crucial over
Zakir: "Nasir, take my 1 year salary......"
