For the first time in four years, Sri Lanka managed to win a series. A very good series for the hosts which witnessed legendary Lasith Malinga setting the tone with a virtuoso performance in his swansong match. It was followed by two convincing wins, with today's victory serving as a dedication to recently retired Nuwan Kulasekara. A happy post-World Cup tournament.
For the visitors, the absence of star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and skipper Mashrafe Mortaza all but ended their chances to dominate the Lions.
Today, Angelo Mathews won the man of the match for his cool 90-ball 87 runs which helped Sri Lanka post a big total of 298/8. Then, Dasun Shanaka took three wickets as Tigers could manage only 172 in 36 overs.
