Bangladesh A cricket team prevailed in a thriller as they brought parity in the three-match one-day series against their Sri Lankan counterparts after winning the second and penultimate game by one wicket at R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo Thursday.

In the process, the second string Bangladesh side leveled the series 1-1 with the third and final match scheduled to be held Saturday at the same venue.

Chasing 227, the visiting side reached their destination in the last ball of the innings, largely thanks to opener Mohammad Naim, who laid the platform for victory with a fine 59-ball 68, featuring nine fours.

He was ably supported by captain Mohammad Mithun, who chipped in with 52 off 87 deliveries, including three fours and a six.

Sri Lanka A’s Ramesh Mendis bagged three wickets while Shiran Fernando, Chamika Karunaratne and Ashan Priyanjan took two wickets apiece.

Earlier, the home side posted 226 losing nine wickets in their stipulated 50 overs, one-drop batsman Kamindu Mendis (61) and No 5 batter Priyamal Perera (52) leading the way with half-centuries.

Bangladesh A’s Abu Haider Rony, Ebadat Hossain and Sanjamul Islam bagged two wickets each while Abu Jayed, Saif Hasan and Afif Hossain notched one apiece.

The two teams earlier played out a 0-0 draw in the two-game four-day series, following which the Lankans won by seven wickets in the first one-dayer Wednesday.

2ND ONE-DAYER

BANGLADESH A 227/9 (Naim 68, Mithun 52) beat SRI LANKA A 226/9 (Mendis 61, Rony 2/42) by one wicket
