Scorecard summary
Bangladesh124/10(31.1 overs)
Sri Lanka126/0(21.1 overs)

Sri Lanka have taken maximum points A quick win and Bangladesh do need to look at their batsmen as they came out playing their shots even before getting a look at the ball The star of the day was Chamida Vaas, picking up 6 for 25 and 3 for Muralitharan then followed a tremendous unfinished partnership by the SL openers who nver gave a chance to the Bdesh bowlers SL look to be in fine shape and must be well satisfied with their performance in the World Cup so far So with a 10 wicket win for SL we move to the presentations Bdesh skipper says he was disappointed with the performance but hopes they will do well, says he is trying his best

Thinks Kapali is a goog player Sanath, liked Vaas' performance and is happy with his form too Says someone needs to get out to let the other batters a chance to bat The MoM to get watch R12,000 and its naturally Chaminda Vaas Says he is happy and wants all the boys to perform well, boys are playing well With that we say goodbye and hope you will be here for tomorrows
