Mushfiqur Rahim picks ton against Sri Lanka in 2nd ODI

Bangladesh ace batsman Mushfiqur Rahim picked up his eighth ODI hundred against Sri Lanka on Tuesday afternoon.

He scored 125 off 127 balls striking 10 fours.

The host country have handed a debut to Shoriful Islam, by leaving out Taskin Ahmed and Mosaddek Hossain replaces Mohammad Mithun. Sri Lanka are unchanged.

The Tigers are currently 1-0 up in the series after winning the opening game by 33 runs that also ended their 10-match winless streak across format on Sunday.

The victory in the first match meant the hosts now have two opportunities to complete their first-ever ODI series win against the Sri Lankans, which they couldn’t do in their previous eight bilateral ODI series (six defeats, two draws).

Bangladesh: 1 Tamim Iqbal (capt), 2 Liton Das, 3 Shakib Al Hasan, 4 Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 5 Mosaddek Hossain, 6 Mahmudullah, 7 Afif Hossain, 8 Mohammad Saifuddin, 9 Mehidy Hasan, 10 Shoriful Islam, 11 Mustafizur Rahman

Sri Lanka: 1 Danushka Gunathilaka, 2 Kusal Perera (capt & wk), 3 Pathum Nissanka, 4 Kusal Mendis, 5 Dhananjaya de Silva, 6 Ashen Banara, 7 Dasun Shanaka, 8 Wanindu Hasaranga, 9 Isuru Udana, 10 Lakshan Sandakan, 11 Dushmantha Chameera
