All thanks to Mahmudullah, who maintained his calm amidst the enthralling chaos that lit up in the final over of the match, as Bangladesh shocked Sri Lanka to enter the Nidahas Trophy finals. Both players earned a demerit point. But when umpires interfered, play was resumed and Mahmudullah pulled Bangladesh out of troubled waters and helped them seal the match by two wickets.

Bangladeshi players' skills don't match their zeal always but there will be no inches given when the likes of Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim or Mahmudullah step onto the field.

The visitors contested the call of the leg-umpire, saying it was a no ball due to its height.

Nurul Hasan, one of the reserve players who was sent to the field with a message from the Bangladesh dressing room, was also involved in a spat with Thisara Perera, the Sri Lankan skipper. I was telling them to play.

Their joint statement said there was "no plausible alternative explanation" to Russian Federation being to blame for the attack. When Moscow finally made its announcement Saturday, it went slightly beyond strictly reciprocal measures.

The run out triggered a dispute with the umpires since they did not award Bangladesh a no-ball as Udana exceeded the solitary bouncer allowed per over in Twenty20 cricket. For India, Washington Sundar (1/20) also had a good outing but Shankar (0/48) and Thakur (0/45) gave away 93 runs in eight overs. "That's the tricky part about this wicket and that's why you see a lot of dot balls being played", Karthik reckoned. The batsmen stayed put, however, and Mahmudullah steered the Tigers to a thrilling win with a six off the penultimate ball.

Bangladesh managed to make it to the final after a tough battle with Sri Lanka.

"India may be missing some of their top senior players, but they have already shown that they have great depth of talent right now in all departments", wrote Jayawardene, who played 448 ODIs, 149 ODIs and 55 T20Is. "It depends on how you see it", Shakib told reporters.

"I'm sure everyone is relaxed", he said. If we think it is a big final against India, then it is pressure. "So, the good thing to do against spinners is to have a positive mindset and look to score runs in every ball rather than trying to survive", Karthik said. Skipper Rohit Sharma's team was the first to book its place in the final after winning three of its four games at Colombo's R. Premadasa Stadium.

Bangladesh managed a stunning two-wicket victory over Sri Lanka under dramatic circumstances in the sixth T20 match of the Nidahas Trophy 2018 at Colombo on Friday to set up a clash against India on March 18, media reports said.

"The Bangladesh team members have been reminded of their responsibility in upholding the spirit of cricket at all times. Other guys came up to me and believed that we'll do it".

After losing to Sri Lanka in the opener, India are favourites to lift the title as they have registered three consecutive wins here, including two against their final's opponent.
