Mushfiqur Rahim came in to bat at number three and joined Sarkar in the middle. Sarkar departed after scoring 15 runs in the 9th over. 

Sabbir Rahman with Rahim built a 111-runs partnership and helped the team to get past the 150-run mark.

Lower-order failed to add runs on the scoreboard and the side lost wickets in regular intervals. Rahim held the one end strong and scored 67 runs before he was departed by Nuwan Pradeep. For Sri Lanka, Malinga and Pradeep bagged three wickets each.

Since his 2004 debut against the United Arab Emirates, Malinga has played 225 ODIs and his unusual slingy action and an ability to bowl yorkers have made him a formidable bowler in limited-overs cricket. The right-arm paceman, a sought-after player in Twenty20 leagues, has also played 30 tests though he quit the long format in 2011 after battling a nagging knee injury.
