Bangladesh defeated Sri Lanka by 3 wickets

Bangladesh defeated Sri Lanka by 3 wickets. In the 38th match of the ICC ODI World Cup, Bangladesh defeated Sri Lanka by 3 wickets. In the match played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi, Bangladesh won the toss and decided to field.

Sri Lanka scored 279 runs against Bangladesh while batting first, the Sri Lankan team got out after scoring 279 runs on the third ball of the 50th over.

On behalf of Sri Lanka Charath Asalanka played an innings of 108 runs, apart from them Sudira Samara Wickrama scored 41 runs and Nissanka stood out by scoring 41 runs. De Silva played an innings of 34 runs and Mahesh Thekshana played an innings of 22 runs.

Angelo Mathews of Sri Lanka was dismissed without playing a ball, the first time in the history of international cricket that a batsman has been dismissed on appeal by the opposing team after a time-out.

According to the report, Angelo Mathews came into the field with a broken helmet, after which the Lincoln cricketer tried to convince the field umpire in the match, but he did not allow it.

The players, including Bangladesh captain Shakib-ul-Hasan, appealed for a time-out, and the umpire dismissed Angelo Mathews on the basis of the time-out.

According to ICC rules, any player has to face the ball within 2 minutes after a batsman is out or leaves the crease, meaning any player has to face the ball within 2 minutes of the fall of the wicket, but Mathews did so. The umpire declared him out.

Mathews is thus the first player to be ruled out due to a timeout.

On behalf of Bangladesh, Rasghan Hasan took 3 wickets and Sharif-ul-Salam and Shakib-ul-Hassan got 2 wickets.

Bangladesh achieved the target of 279 runs in the 42nd over.
