Sri Lanka clinched the ODI series against Bangladesh with one game to spare yesterday, which is also their first home series win in 44 months.

The Lankan bowlers put together a great team effort and won the second ODI by 7 wickets, subsequent to Bangladesh’s 238 for 8 after deciding to bat first.

It is Sri Lanka's first series win at home in three-and-a-half years, and it came via a combination of young and experienced players.

Avishka Fernando's stunning 82 came off 75 balls, including nine fours and two sixes, and he gave Sri Lanka the perfect start in their chase.

He added 71 for the first wicket with Dimuth Karunaratne and 58 for the second with Kusal Perera, before Angelo Mathews and Kusal Mendis steered Sri Lanka home with an unbroken fourth-wicket stand of 96.
