'We all need to take responsibility' - Mathews

Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews was disappointed with the performance of his side after they lost to Bangladesh by 23 runs in the Asia Cup

  • Sabbir's cool head and fast hands

    Being involved in a run out can frazzle the mind of the batsman who survives, but the maturity of Bangladesh's No. 3 came to the fore as he responded with a stirring counterattack

  • Sabbir's one-man act too much for Sri Lanka

    After they ran into early trouble, Sabbir Rahman scored more than half of Bangladesh's runs. Their bowlers followed it up by squeezing Sri Lanka in the 148-run chase, eventually picking up their second win in the Asia Cup by 23 runs
