The occasion was the first Bangladesh missed Mustafizur in an ODI since the tri-nation series in Ireland in April-May this year.
Bangladesh in their fourth game of the series, against Ireland, had rested Mustafizur given the hectic schedule the side had back then.
Mustafizur in the two matches played against Sri Lanka notched four wickets, bowling 18 overs, and conceded 125 runs.
