Dhaka – Bangladesh on Thursday beat Sri Lanka by 45 runs in the second Twenty20 to draw the series 1-1 in Colombo.
Captain Mashrafe Mortaza elected to bat first as Bangladesh seek a series-leveling win to end his T20 international career, and an impressive tour of Sri Lanka.
The visitors made two changes – one forced and one voluntary. The offspin of Mehedi Hasan has been preferred to the seam bowling of Taskin Ahmed, while back pain sees Tamim Iqbal cede his place to Imrul Kayes.
Sri Lanka have not changed their winning XI from Tuesday, three frontline quicks in Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Kulasekara and Vikum Sanjaya, alongside three slow-bowling allrounders, according to espncricinfo website.
