Mathews, Shanaka star as Sri Lanka complete whitewash

Colombo: Dimuth Karunaratne won the toss and elected to bat first in the third ODI on Wednesday.

After losing opener Fernando so early (13/1), skipper Karunaratne and Kusal Parera took hold of the situation and made 83-run partnership for the second wicket.

The same was followed by Kusal Medis and Angelo Mathews as both of they build a solid partnership of 101 runs.

This took Sri Lanka towards a decent total.

Kusal Medis got out for 54 off 58 balls. Angelo Mathews made 87 off 90 balls before he departed in the 50th over.

A quick 14-ball 30 from Danus Shanaka also helped the team to reach close to 300.

Brief scores:
Sri Lanka 294 for 8 (Mathews 87, Mendis 54, Soumya 3-56) beat Bangladesh 172 (Soumya 69, Shanaka 3-27, Rajitha 2-17) by 122 runs

Bangladesh faltered in their run chase yet again, with Soumya Sarkar (69) the only batsman to put up any sort of resistance.

Taijul Islam (39) came up with a brave effort at the end, but it was too little too late as Sri Lanka won by 122 runs to claim a 3-0 series whitewash.
