Rain had the final say in the one-day series between Bangladesh A and Sri Lanka A as the third match met an early end in Sylhet. The series ended tied at 1-1 after the umpires called off the match at 4:20pm after play was stopped at 2:55pm due to heavy rain.
Sri Lanka A reached 240 for 9 in 45 overs, with the innings being disrupted once due to a shower. Sadeera Samarawickrama and Ashan Priyanjan struck 75 and 53 respectively, and shared a 130-run second wicket stand. Later, skipper Thisara Perera made a run-a-ball 44 as the home side fought back through Sunzamul Islam’s four-wicket haul.
In reply, when the Bangladesh A openers had taken the score to 12 for no loss in the fourth over, heavy rain arrived at the Sylhet Stadium. Perera was named the player-of-the-series.
Sri Lanka A had earlier won the three-match unofficial Test series 1-0.
