Lions punish sloppy Tigers
Bangladesh had a bad day during fielding against Sri Lanka during the 18th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 at Melbourne today.
The first over of the day from Masrafe Mortaza saw an easy catch spilled by Anamul Haque in the slips when Lahiru Thirimanne was yet to open his account.
The Lankan opener made Bangladesh pay with a half-century to his name.
Things went worse as three catches, two run outs and an easy stumping chance were missed by Bangladeshi side.
The Sri Lankan batters were the real beneficiaries of missed opportunities by Bangladesh as they piled up 332 losing only one wicket in 50 overs.
Kumar Sangakkara rode his luck and smashed unbeaten 105 runs from only 76 balls.
Tillakaratne Dilshan made full use of a missed stumping and a run out to score 161 runs from 146 balls and remained not out.
