A glittering allround show from Shakib Al Hasan and some deft bowling display from Mustafizur Rahman have propelled Bangladesh to a series-levelling 45-run win in the last Twenty20 against Sri Lanka to give Mashrafe Bin Mortaza a victorious send-off in the format.
Shakib smashed a decisive 38 to capitalise on a strong base and help Bangladesh post a competitive 176 for 9 at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Thursday evening.
The allrounder dealt early blows to the Lankan top order, returning 3-24 while young Mustafizur took 4-21 to bowl Sri Lanka out for 131 with two overs to spare, as the series ended 1-1.
