The uncapped Wicketkeeper Jaker Ali has been injured while fielding during the third ODI match against Sri Lanka. He attempted to catch the ball on Pramod Madushan’s strike in Taskin Ahmed’s bowling, where Jaker Ali and Anamul Haque collided after which Jaker was taken on a stretcher.

Jaker Ali came in as a substitution for Soumya Sarkar who had a neck injury after striking the advertising board in an attempt to stop the ball.

Meanwhile, Mustafizur Rahman suffered severe cramps during the match. He bagged two wickets for 39 runs in 9 overs he bowled on March 18. During the 42nd over, he was seen uncomfortable with his stomach and fell to the ground after completing the over.

He was set to bowl the 48th over but was unable to complete it due to which Soumya Sarkar came to his place. This was his first match in the series after he replaced Tanzim Hasan Sakib in the lineup.

Batting first Sri Lanka scored 235 runs with Janith Liyanage being the highest scorer smashing 101 runs on 102 deliveries. Tasking Ahmed picked three wickets while Mustafizur and Mehidy Hasan Miraz bagged two wickets each.

With the target of 236 runs, Bangladesh started their innings where Tanzid Hasan was the highest scorer for Bangladesh hitting 84 runs on 81 deliveries including 9 fours and 4 boundaries.

Rishad Hossain smashed 48* runs while Mustifiqur Rahim scored 37 runs in the match. Towhid Hridoy and Mehidy Hasan are the other scorers in the match. Lahiru Kumara bagged four wickets while Wanindu Hasranaga bagged two wickets.

Despite Lahiru Kumara’s efforts, Bangladesh bagged the series win 2-1. Both sides will engage in another clash in a long format where the first test is set to begin on March 22 at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, Sylhet.
