Sri Lanka totalled 210 for 4 in their 20 overs in the second and final T20I against Bangladesh.

Kusal Mendis made 70 off 42 balls. He added 98 runs for the first wicket with Dhanushka Gunathilaka. He scored 42 off 37 balls.

Thereafter lusty blows by Thisara Perera (31 off 17 balls), Upul Tharanga (25 off 13 balls) and Dasun Shanaka (30 not out off 11 balls) helped the visitors to swell their total to a formidable one.

Earlier in the day, Bangladesh's stand-in captain Mahmudullah won the toss and opted to bowl.

Tamim Iqbal's return from a bicep injury was among four changes for Bangladesh.

Seamer Abu Jayed and allrounder Mahedi Hasan were given their T20I debuts while batsman Mohammad Mithun also returned to the XI.

Afif Hossain, Zakir Hasan, Sabbir Rahman and Rubel Hossain were left out.

Sri Lanka made one change with left-arm spinner Amila Aponso making his T20I debut in place of wicketkeeper-batsman Niroshan Dickwella.
