In the final match of the series, Sri Lanka batted first and managed to put up a competitive total of 235 runs on the board, thanks to Janith Liyanage’s stellar century, scoring an unbeaten 101 runs off 102 balls. Bangladesh’s Taskin Ahmed shone with the ball, taking three crucial wickets and bowling a maiden over.

Facing a target of 236 runs for victory, Bangladesh’s batting lineup faced early challenges. However, resilient batting performances from Tanzid Hasan, Rishad Hossain, and Mushfiqur Rahim helped turn the game in Bangladesh’s favor.

Mushfiqur Rahim’s Controversial Celebration

In the 41st over of the match, Mushfiqur Rahim’s composed batting saw Bangladesh through to victory, securing a series win with a score of 2-1. Following the win, during the post-match celebrations, Mushfiqur Rahim’s actions sparked controversy. He was seen holding a helmet and mimicking Angelo Mathews’ helmet malfunction incident from the World Cup 2023. This gesture drew attention on social media and became a topic of discussion among cricket enthusiasts.

Angelo Mathews’ dismissal during the World Cup 2023 match against Bangladesh had stirred controversy. He was declared out due to being ‘timed out’, becoming the first batsman in international cricket history to suffer such a fate for failing to reach the crease within the allotted time.

While Rahim’s celebration amused his teammates, it likely upset Sri Lankan fans, especially considering their team’s loss in the series. The playful imitation of Mathews’ unfortunate incident might have added salt to Sri Lanka’s wounds.
