Dasun Shanaka hit a rapid 86 off 63 balls inclusive of six sixes but was upstaged by a steady knock of 91 off 100 balls (11 fours, 1 six) by Mohammad Mithun as Bangladesh began their short tour of Sri Lanka with a comfortable five-wicket win over a Sri Lanka Board President’s XI in a one-day warm-up match played at the P Sara Oval yesterday.

Bangladesh will be looking to put behind them a disappointing World Cup campaign and start afresh the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka under stand-in captain Tamim Iqbal.

Sri Lanka will concentrate on improving their overall ODI rankings in the three-match one-day series against Bangladesh that commences at the R Premadasa Stadium on July 26, chairman of selectors Ashantha de Mel said.

The process of selecting the new Indian coach has started and even though the incumbents have been given an extension of 45 days, a new management will be in place before India’s home series against South Africa which starts in September. Also, members of the existing panel can reapply for the different positions it is quite likely that the Indian team could see a new head coach come September.
