Full commentary

6.45pm There it is. Bangladesh secure their second successive bonus-point victory in the tri-series - this is their biggest win in ODI cricket. It was set up by the batting might of the the big three - Shakib, Tamim and Mushfiq. Chasing 321, Sri Lanka then unravelled quickly with Shakib in the spotlight again. He was on the brink of a hat-trick at one point, and ultimately finished with 3 for 47. Mashrafe and Rubel, the seamers, complemented him by taking two wickets each. Sri Lanka keep lurching from one defeat to another. And Mathews' injury has shaken up their balance further. I will bring you the presentations shortly.

Dinesh Chandimal: "Actually, we are really disappointed with our performance. In ODI cricket, we're going through a bad patch. Bangladesh played outstanding cricket, credit to them. It is tough to come out of this. Injuries... To keep the right XI in tough. If we win one, we can get things in place. Still we have a chance, and we are in the tournament."

Mashrafe Mortaza: "If you look at recent past, this is one of the best wins for us. The way the boys played was really good and we have to keep it going. There is always something to learn if you win or loss. Tamim could have got a hundred, the batting was up to the mark though nobody got a hundred. Bowling side, we were struggling in South Africa. Back to home, we are up to the mark. Sabbir's role is to finish the innings. He is good to bat at No. 6 or 7, and he feels positive there. It is suiting him. We are still finding one more batsman who can hit like Sabbir. Once Shakib bats at No.3, he looks like a cool and calm customer. Tamim is hungry for the runs and Bijoy batted well for us. This top five has to bat 40 or 45 overs and they did that today"

Shakib Al Hasan, Man of the Match: "With that everyone contributed. Tamim played the way he has been playing for two or three years. Mushfiq played well and other chipped in. I thought we bowled really well - and it was a better performance from the last game. Everyday you need to improve and there is healthy competition in the team, and you can't relax. Three more matches to come, and hopefully we can keep going. We need to do a lot of things right. In five days, we have to play three games, but playing at home in Mirpur is an advantage."

That's a wrap of this match. Thanks for your company and comments. This is Deivarayan Muthu signing off on the behalf of Akshay Gopalakrishnan. Cheers

sydee: "Records in this match- Tamim reached 11000 international runs and Sakib 10000. MahmudUllah took his 50th ODI catch.BD got their biggest win in ODI by the margin of runs.Lots of positives in a match"
