Tamim Iqbal (82, 125b, 4x7, 6x1) put on a strong performance with the bat as he did in the first innings but Soumya Sarkar (10, 26b, 4x2) who scored 61 in the first innings failed to deliver. Bangladesh had a slight batting collapse as Imrul Kayes (0, 1b) got out for a duck and Al Hasan (15, 43b, 4x1) also failed to deliver after his score of 116 in the first innings.

Despite loss of wickets in quick succession, Iqbal's 82 and Shabbir Rahman's 41(76b, 4x5) proved to be enough for Bangladesh. Mushfiqur Rahim (22, 45b 4x1) and Mosaddek Hossain (13, 28b, 4x2) along with Mehedi Hasan Miraz (2, 2b) managed to score the remaining runs as Bangladesh reached the target with relative ease.

Perera and Rangana Herath were the only two bowlers for Sri Lanka to pick up wickets in the second innings and both claimed three wickets each.
