Sri Lanka recorded one of their most memorable victories after beating Bangladesh in a real cliffhanger at the Dubai International Stadium in Asia Cup 2022. Emotions were running high in the game as captain Dasun Shanaka and Bangladesh team director Khaled Mahmud had exchanged a war of words with regard to the world-class bowlers on each side in the press conference before the game commenced.
While Shanaka had a line of thought that Bangladesh had only two world-class bowlers in their team, Mahmud countered to it and said that there are none in Sri Lanka. Former Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene, earlier, tweeted before the start of the match to spice things up stating,
“Looks like it’s time for @OfficialSLC bowlers to show the class and batters to show who they are on the field.” and posted a video of Mahmud’s interview.
Following the victory, Jayawardene gave it back to the Bangladesh side by coming up with another Tweet which stated about the world-class performance.
