Scorecard
Bangladesh handed Sri Lanka their first defeat of the tri-series to set up a virtual semi-final clash against Pakistan on Saturday. Sri Lanka, who had won three games in a row, were routed for 67, a target which Bangladesh chased with six wickets in hand and 111 balls to spare.
Bangladesh used four bowlers, all of whom picked up wickets. Panna Ghosh struck the first blow, trapping Chamari Polgampola lbw in the fifth over, and Shamima Akhter bowled Hiruka Fernando to reduce Sri Lanka to 25 for 2. Sri Lanka were dealt a body blow when two of their middle-order batsmen were run out after which the tail folded meekly, four of the last five batsmen were out for duck.
The hosts' chase began badly when Shatira Jakir was lbw to Polgampola for a 13-ball duck but steady contributions from Ayesha Akhter, who top scored with 24, Ghosh and captain Salma Khatun secured the victory.
Sri Lanka have already qualified for the final of the tournament and will be joined by the winner of tomorrow's contest between Pakistan and the hosts, both of whom are on five points each.
