Sri Lanka's Chandimal handed two-match ban for over-rate offence

Chandika Hathurusingha took charge as head coach of the Sri Lanka cricket team in December last year

In the hearing ICC on Sunday, Sri Lankan skipper Dinesh Chandimal will miss the next 2 matches of the Nidahas trophy 2018 against India and Bangladesh as International Cricket Council (ICC) has charged him in a serious over-rate offence against Bangladesh on March 10.

Their recent record against Bangladesh is impressive, having beaten them in the away Test and T20 series besides the final of the tri-series, which also included Zimbabwe.

All the three teams - India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh - have played two matches and won a match each and Monday's match gives both the teams the opportunity to move to the top of the table. On the bowling front, pacer Dushmantha Chameera stood out while the Indians struggled to read the leg-spin of Jeevan Mendis.

It was not a ideal start for India's second string squad in the tournament as they lost against the hosts in the tourney opener before bouncing back with a win against Bangladesh.

"This is all about transferring confidence from the Bangladesh series".

Richards won that race handily with 78 percent of the vote. "It's Trump. That's 20 points more than the 40% that went to Democratic candidates.

"It was wonderful to see and good inspiration for us". That was one of the reasons to promote Liton and that plan worked for us.

However, the worry for India has been the form of fellow opener Rohit, who has scored only 39 runs in the past five T20Is.

India chased down 140 easily with Bangladesh spinners not posing any threat to India by bowling flat more often than not.

Blazing half-centuries by Kusal Mendis and Kusal Perera had powered Sri Lanka to a formidable 214 for six after Bangladesh opted to bowl. It was then the turn of the other Kusal - Perera - as he smashed Mehidy Hasan for a six and four, helping Sri Lanka race to 111 for one at the end of 11th over.

Liton cashed in on the left-right combination he and Tamim formed; the former striking the first of his five sixes by coming down the track to Dhananjaya and smashing over the mid-wicket region before going on to hit a 19-ball 43.
