DHAKA: Shehan Madushanka became the fourth bowler in history to claim a hat-trick on debut as Sri Lanka crushed Bangladesh by 79 runs to win the tri-nation One-day International tournament in Dhaka on Saturday.
The 22-year-old pacer claimed Bangladesh’s last three wickets before finishing with 3-26 as Sri Lanka defended their modest score of 221 runs by bowling out Bangladesh for 142 in 41.1 overs.
Madushanka took the wickets of Rubel Hossain and Mashrafe Mortaza in the last two balls of his sixth over before he removed Mahmudullah Riyad in the next over to complete his hat-trick.
Mahmudullah staged a valiant fight for Bangladesh with 76 off 92 balls but he lacked support from the Bangladesh side, which missed the batting of all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan due to a finger injury he suffered in the game.
Medium pacer Dushmantha Chameera and spinner Akila Dananjaya claimed two wickets each for Sri Lanka.
Earlier, fast bowler Rubel claimed four wickets to help Bangladesh dismiss Sri Lanka for 221 runs on a sluggish pitch at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.
Hossain, who returned figures of 4-46, was ably supported by fellow paceman Mustafizur Rahman (2-29).
Upul Tharanga top-scored with 56 off 99 balls while skipper Dinesh Chandimal added 45. Niroshan Dickwella made 42.
