Sri Lanka has taken the one-day worldwide and test series, and needs one more win in its last tour match on Sunday to sweep up all three formats. Sri Lanka won the Test series 1-0 and will now be eyeing to emulate their performance in game's shortest format. He scored a solid 49 in that game as Sri Lanka managed their first win of that series before going on to win the series. The BAN vs SL 1st T20I will be telecast live on Star Sports Select 2/HD.

The match is scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m. Sri Lankan time.

Bangladesh recorded their highest ever T20 score, but a team effort helped Sri Lanka chase the target of 194 with 20 balls to spare in the first T20 on Thursday.

Legspinner Jeevan Mendis, with 2-21, stalled Bangladesh's progress but Mushfiqur and captain Mahmudullah shared 73 runs for the fourth wicket to keep the side on track. In his absence, Mahmudullah will be leading the team and he will be well-served if senior members Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim step up and deliver.
