Opener Kusal Mendis and one-down Kusal Perera contributed together 85 runs before Kusal Mendis was caught at the midwicket by Sabbir Rahman off Mahmudullah Riyad when Sri Lanka’s score was 141 for the loss of two wickets.

Kusal Mendis hit a stormy 57. His 30-ball innings was belted with five fours and two sixes.
