Sri Lanka 208-7 (Mathews 74no) beat
Bangladesh 204-9 (Priyanjan 2-11) by 3 wickets
Asia Cup game 10, Mirpur
The final group game of the Asia Cup 2014 proved to be a low-scoring affair won by Sri Lanka, who beat Bangladesh by three wickets to make it four wins out of four ahead of Saturday's final against Pakistan.
Angelo Mathews led his side to victory with an unbeaten 74 in 103 balls after they were asked to chase 205 by Bangladesh.
At 47 for four and 75 for five, they were struggling but Bangladesh, not for the first time in this tournament, were unable to capitalise on their strong position.
They had earlier posted 204 for nine with Anamul Haque top scoring by hitting 49 while four Sri Lankans took two wickets.
The defeat means that Bangladesh finished the tournament in fifth place in the table, behind Sri Lanka and Pakistan, who meet in the final, as well as India and Afghanistan.
