Some poor bowling from the hosts had them end up on the losing side.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is believed to be hampered with a busy calendar with the Indian Premier League (IPL) consuming nearly two months and most T20 leagues in the southern hemisphere being held in December-January.

Join us for the toss and teams in a bit.

Batsmen displayed great aggression on Thursday which helped Sri Lanka reach home with 20 balls to spare.

Despite a disappointing start to the series in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka fought back brilliantly to win the ODI tri-series also involving Zimbabwe, then the two-match Test series 1-0.

But Shanaka and Perera, who was unbeaten on 39 off just 18 balls, ensured no further hiccup in the Sri Lankan innings.

After an indifferent 2017, Sri Lanka were desperate for a change of fortune.

Nazmul later picked the wicket of Upul Tharanga, for four, before fellow debutant Afif Hossain removed Mendis with his off spin.
