    As it happened: Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh, 1st ODI

    Live updates from the first ODI between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh at Hambantota.

    Sri Lanka innings:

    End of over 35.4: Sri Lanka 238 for 2: Sri Lanka have finished the match in style and with that they have gone ahead in the series. Dilshan remained not out on 113. Sangakkara fell just before the game ended as he got out after scoring 63.

    End of over 31: Sri Lanka 202 for 1: Tillakaratne Dilshan has raised his 15th ODI hundred in a great manner. On the other side Sangakkara is playing the second fiddle as he is on 44. Sri Lanka need 36 runs in 10 overs.

    End of over 26: Sri Lanka 167 for 1: Kumar Sangakkara and Tillakaratne Dilshan are making it a very simple task for Sri Lanka. After a blistering start, both the batsmen are taking that forward with more matured approach. They know victory is very much within their reach as they need 71 runs in 15 overs. Lack of penetration in the bowling department is hurting Bangladesh badly.

    End of over 18: Sri Lanka 136 for 1: Sri Lanka are still going on a high note but in last few overs Bangladesh have managed to pull things back a little. Dilshan is batting on 66 off 56 balls and Sangakkara is 15 after facing 17 balls. Sri Lanka still need 102 runs in 23 overs which should be a bed of roses for them.

    End of over 13: Sri Lanka 110 for 1: After a brilliant opening stand, Perera edged a out going delivery of Sohag Gazi and Nasir Hossain made no mistakes in the slips. Kumar Sangakkara has joined Dilshan.

    End of over 8: Sri Lanka 83 for 0: Sri Lanka are carrying the momentum and putting huge pressure on Bangladesh. Boundaries are coming easily and that too thick and fast. Sri Lanka just need 155 runs to win in 33 overs.

    End of over 5: Sri Lanka 60 for 0: Blistering start from Sri Lanka, especially from Tillakaratne Dilshan. Dilshan is simply hammering all the bowlers to all corners of the park. He is batting on 39 off 19 and Perera is on 18 off 11. Bangladesh are already under huge pressure.

    End of over 2: Sri Lanka 25 for 0: After a long delay due to power cut in the stadium the match has finally started. Sri Lanka have raced to 25 in just 2 overs. The match is reduced to 41 overs and in D/L method Sri Lanka now need 238 in 41 overs. Kushal Perera is on 9 and Dilshan is on 16.

    Bangladesh Innings:

    End of over No. 50: Bangladesh 259 for 8. Tamim Iqbal scored 112 while Nasir Hossain stroked 73 off 59 balls to give Bangladesh innings the momentum it needed to reach a challenging total. Malinga and Mathews took two wickets each.

    End of over No. 49: Bangladesh 250 for 8. Malinga cleans up Abul Hasan, who missed a straight full toss to lose his off stump, but this is already a challenging total now.

    End of over No. 45: Bangladesh 211 for 7. The visitors continue to falter in the death overs as Sohag Gazi is nicely taken at point by Dilshan off Malinga. Three wickets have now falled in seven runs.

    End of over No. 42: Bangladesh 186 for 4. Players have walked off as one of the light towers has gone blank, and the umpires reckon it's too dark to continue. Tamim Iqbal is on 102 with Nasir Hossain on 27.

    End of over No. 41: Bangladesh 176 for 4. Tamim brings up his fourth ODI century with an outside-edged boundary off Mathews, but he needs to stay the length if Bangladesh were to reach 250.

    End of over No. 40: Bangladesh 169 for 4. Tamim Iqbal is into his nineties and he, along with Nasir Hossain, has added 40 runs for the fifth wicket. With wickets in hand, expect some fireworks in the death overs.

    End of over No. 36: Bangladesh 151 for 4. Tamim Iqbal is 16 short of a century as the visitors try to take full toll of the batting Powerplay.

    End of over No. 34: Bangladesh 144 for 4. Nasir Hossain (7*) has joined Tamim Iqbal in the middle, but it's really up to Tamim to take Bangladesh to a challenging total.

    Mahmudullah c Sangakkara b Mathews 29 (51)

    End of over No. 27: Bangladesh 119 for 3. Tamim (67*) and Mahmudullah (26*) came together at 63 for 3 and have raised the 50-run stand to allay fears of a collapse.

    End of over No. 23: Bangladesh 97 for 3. Tamim Iqbal completes his half century in 65 balls with a nice tuck off his hips to deep backward square leg. But the scoring rate remains pedestrian 3.90.

    End of over No. 20: Bangladesh 82 for 3. Tamim Iqbal has been the steady influence after those three wickets fell in succession. He is on 47*. Giving him company is Mahmudullah on 12*.

    End of over No. 13: Bangladesh 63 for 3. The visitors continue to stutter after a steady start as Mushfiqur Rahim becomes the third batsman to fall within a space of 19 runs as Angelo Mathews traps him in front in his first over.

    End of over No. 11: Bangladesh 59 for 2. Sri Lanka strike again within the space of 13 runs, this time with Nuwan Kulasekara who removes Mohammad Ashraful with help from Kushal Perera's brilliant catch at mid-off.

    Mohammad Ashraful c Perera b Kulasekara 0 (5)

    End of over No. 8: Bangladesh 44 for 1. Thisara Perera strikes in his second over to remove Anamul Haque who stays back on a length delivery and chops it onto his stumps.
