Sri Lanka has maintained a perfect record for the finals of the Asia Cup by beating hosts Bangladesh by three wickets in the final league match of the tournament in Dhaka on Thursday.


The four-time champions, who will meet defending champions Pakistan in the final on Saturday, restricted Bangladesh to 204-9 with some tight bowling and resilient batting before overcoming early jitters to chase down the target in 49 overs.

According to Sport24, captain Angelo Mathews made an unbeaten 74 and he, along with Chaturanga de Silva (44), lifted Sri Lanka from a perilous 75-5 with a sixth-wicket stand of 82 runs.

The report mentioned that Bangladesh, who were runners-up to Pakistan in the last Asia Cup in 2012, finished the event with four defeats in as many matches while five-time champions India lost two of their four matches and Afghanistan recorded one win and three defeats.
