Mushfiqur Rahim's superb hundred complemented by a collective effort from the bowlers saw Bangladesh thrash Sri Lanka by 137 runs despite Lasith Malinga's brilliant international comeback in the Asia Cup 2018 opener on Saturday. Speaking after the match, Sri Lanka skipper Angelo Mathews stated that his side were let down mainly by the batting as the target in hand was gettable, even if the fielding left a lot to be desired. Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza, meanwhile, believed this was a good way to get the tournament started and also thanked the crowd for their support.
