That ends Bangladesh's tour of Sri Lanka, and that is time for us to say good bye. Good bye.

Dinesh Chandimal: "As captain, I am happy about my first win. Kusal Perera gave us the start and we continued after that. We put up a good total, that is why we won. Malinga and Mathews gave me a lot of advice. I could not come up with a good performance but I am happy with the win as captain."

Mushfiqur Rahim: "We gave 20 runs more. That makes a difference. We achieved a lot of positives in the Test and ODIs, but still lot of scope of improvement. One of our goals was to play consistent cricket."

Kusal Perera is the Man of the Match. Kusal: "Enjoyed my knock. Little pace and bounce earlier, after that it came on very nicely. I am not copying anyone, but people say I bat a bit similar to Sanath Jayasuriya. First six overs, I am always trying to hit boundaries with the field restrictions."

Bangladesh falling short by 17 runs. They conceded 19 wides to Sri Lanka's five, leaked 56 runs from overs 17 to 19 in Sri Lanka's innings, and Ashraful got a poor decision.

Sri Lanka stay at the top of the ICC T20 rankings. Victory for Chandimal in his first game as captain. He has Kusal Perera, Jeevan Mendis and Thisara Perera to thank

Orko: "Well they never gave up, must give that to the BD team... I liked the fighting spirit... The pace attack needs to improve drastically; it's all that this comes down to..."
