10.51pm That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo. Tomorrow, Pakistan play Hong Kong, and we'll hope to find your company there as well. On behalf of all of us here, this is Sreshth Shah and Saurabh Somani signing off. Hope you enjoyed today's game. See you and goodnight!
10.45pm Time for the presentation.
Mashrafe Mortaza, the winning captain says: "Thanks to Mushfiqur and Mithun. Losing two wickets early is always pressure, but the way they batted it's nice to see. I think the word for Tamim is that 'people should always remember him', the way our seniors are performing, it's really promising. I think we can improve a lot, the way we lose wickets, hopefully we'll look after this very well. And also Mithun was out at the wrong time, and we could've made 280-290 if he wasn't out. The fielding has to be better as well. I want to speak in Bangla with the fans. The way you have come to UAE to support us, the victory is for you. Thanks to all Prabashi Bengalis (Non-resident Bangladeshis)."
Mushfiqur Rahim is the Man of the Match. "Thanks to almightly Allah. It's really important to win the first game, and the boys were really geared up. We didn't get the start we wanted, but credit to Mithun for taking the pressure away from me. And after that I just took my chances and it paid off. When Tamim came out to bat, it boosted me that I should do something for him and for my country. Probably the best I've batted because it's difficult to concentrate with the heat and the running between the wickets as well. We've been in great nick, but I haven't been able to convert my starts into big innings. So that's paid off."
Atiq: "Now the worrying part for Bangladesh is who will open from next match. Mominul should be given chance. "
Dilip: "Being a big fan of matthews just want him to step down as a captain. Cant see him always speaking for other 10 players who always let him down. Cant see him taking all the blame and feeling the guilt always.Plz Plz publish this comment and let others know the truth. Big fan of matthews from india..."
S m rashid: "In 1988 i was a student of class six. BD participated in Asia Cup as a host nation. From 1988 to 2004 we have seen disappointing cricket. Now everything have been changed. Congrats BD Cricket Team. Keep continue your good cricket...BD fan from 1988...."
Mano Sivam: "Did Bangladesh players do Nagin dance? please say no. " -- no they did not!
Mahneel Musa: "Mushfiqur Rahim, one of the great modern day batters, massively overshadowed by his rather controversial on field antics. "
10.34pm And that's how the opening day of the Asia Cup comes to an end. It finished as a no-contest really, as Bangladesh's bowlers combined superbly to bowl Sri Lanka out for 124. All six Bangladesh bowlers took a wicket each, so it was really a team effort with the ball for the winners. This is also Sri Lanka's lowest ODI total versus Bangladesh. Credit to Mashrafe and Mehidy at the start of the second innings to give Bangladesh the early breakthroughs, but if it wasn't for Mushfiqur Rahim's brilliant 144, this game may have had a very different ending. Stick around for the presentation.
Here's the losing captain, Angelo Mathews: It was a pretty bad effort from the whole team. We let them off the hook by dropping too many catches, and Mushi batted extremely well. When we batted, we made a lot of bad decisions. It was a good batting surface."
Tushar: "At last there is a wicket for Shakib. "
syed haque: "Pls no nagin dance. I find it very disrespectful. A Bangladeshi fan."
