That was the moment of the match from the Bangladesh player after he had played stunning knock to help his team chase down 215, a record chase for them.

Nuwan Pradeep trapped Das lbw to earn a breakthrough for Sri Lanka but Mushfiqur, who hit four sixes and five fours, batted with goal to force an outcome which meant all three teams in the tournament have one win each.

Each team in the tri-series now has one win apiece though India have played just two games whereas Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have played three. They lost 13 of their last 14 T20Is and will need to find ways to get back to their form.

Mushfiqur Rahim could not control his emotions after hitting the winning runs against Sri Lanka.

Bangladesh: Mahmudullah (C), Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Imrul Kayes, Mushfiqur Rahim, Sabbir Rahman, Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Abu Hider, Abu Jayed, Ariful Haque, Nazmul Islam, Nurul Hasan, Mehidy Hasan, Liton Das.

Perera shared a 55-run partnership with former captain Upul Tharanga to take Sri Lanka's total beyond 200. The way Liton and Tamim set it up for us was outstanding. Tamim scored 47 runs as well.

Mendis and Danushka Gunathilaka had given Sri Lanka a blazing start with the fifty coming in the fourth over. Perera returned to the pavilion with four balls to spare in their innings top edging to wicket-keeper but by then he had shared 55 for the sixth wicket with Tharanga who remained unbeaten on 32 of 15 balls with four boundaries and a six.
