SL v BAN, Asia Cup 2008: Sangakkara's century helps Sri Lanka beat Bangladesh

Kumar Sangakkara's eighth ODI century Wednesday powered defending champion Sri Lanka to a 131-run win against Bangladesh in a Group A match of the Asia Cup.
Sangakkara hit 16 boundaries for 101 off 91 balls while Chamara Kapugedera (74) and Sanath Jayasuriya (72) also put up strong batting displays in Sri Lanka's total of 357-9. Bangladesh never looked to challenge the experienced bowling attack of Sri Lanka and preferred to play out 50 overs and were restricted to 226-7.
Mushfiqur Rahim let Bangladesh with 44 while Mashrafe Mortaza remained unbeaten on 34. Despite the defeat, Bangladesh is expected to advance to the Super Four stage as it defeated United Arab Emirates by 96 runs Tuesday.
Sri Lanka takes on United Arab Emirates in the last group match Thursday and is likely to finish on top of Group A with two victories. Bangladesh captain Mohammad Ashraful's decision to bowl first after he won the toss backfired as Jayasuriya and Sangakkara put on 116 runs off 89 balls. Left-arm spinner Abdul Razzak had Jayasuriya clean bowled but not before the left-handed hard-hitter had hit 10 boundaries and three sixes off 47 balls. Captain Mahela Jayawardene struggled for six before he too was bowled by Razzak.
However, Sangakkara hit five boundaries in Dolar Mahmud's one over before he was caught by Tamim Iqbal off Mahmudullah soon after completing his century in the 28th over. Kapugedera then played a polished innings of 74 off 67 deliveries with five boundaries and two sixes before Bangladesh hit back in the last eight overs and claimed five wickets.
Razzak had the best performance of the Bangladesh bowlers with 3-55 while Mortaza (2-53) and Shahadat Hossain (2-62) both struck late in the innings.
SL v BAN, Asia Cup 2008: Sri Lanka 357 for 9 (50.0 overs) beat Bangladesh 226 for 7 (50.0 overs) by 131 runs
