Sangakkara, Dilshan Tons Help Sri Lanka Thrash Bangladesh

Batting first after winning the toss, Kumar Sangakara and Tillakaratne Dilshan shared a 210 run partnership. Both the veterans slammed their centuries and it was Dilshan's 21st hundred and Sangakkara 22nd playing his 400th match. Having lost just one wicket of Thirimanne who scored 52, complimented with dreadful fielding from Bangladesh, Sri lanka set up a total of 332.

While chasing, Bangladesh lost opener Tamim Iqbal of the second ball of the innings when he was bowled by Malinga. And the batting was similar to their fielding -- sloppy and erratic. Only Shakib Al Hassan and Shabbir Rahman took on the challenge.

But Malinga took 3 wickets, while Lakmal and DIlshan claimed two wickets each wrapping up the Bangladeshi innings at 240.
