The second ODI between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh was called off due to incessant rain in Dambulla.

Play was called off at 8.45pm, an hour and 15 minutes before the cut-off time. It was an anti-climax after the game was shaping up to be an intense contest.

Kusal Mendis' maiden ODI hundred took Sri Lanka to a formidable 311, but Taskin Ahmed's hat-trick in the last over capped off a fine last 10 overs for Bangladesh.

A win for Bangladesh would have given them their first bilateral ODI series win over Sri Lanka, but that was always going to be tough given no side had ever chased down over 300 to win in Sri Lanka.
