Visiting Bangladesh A overcame an adrenaline-pumping moment to level the three-match series against second-string Sri Lankan side as they sealed a nervy one-wicket victory in the second game at R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Thursday.

After losing the first game by seven wickets, this was a must-win game for the second string Bangladesh side, who held the nerve in the nail chewing moment to seal the deal in the last ball of the innings.

Being sent to bat first, Sri Lanka A was restricted to 226-9 with Kamindu Mendis top-scoring with 61. Priyamal Perera was the other notable scorer with 52.
Fast bowlers—Abu Haider Rony and Ebadat Hossain and left-arm spinner Sunjamul Islam grabbed two wickets apiece for Bangladesh A.

The hosts clawed back into the game after Bangladesh A made a decent start thanks to opener Mohammad Naim and captain Mohammad Mithun, who both struck half-century to keep the side on course.

Naim hammered nine boundaries to make 59 ball-68 while Mithun hit 52 off 87. But their dismissal in a short space sparked the collapse as Bangladesh lost wickets at regular interval to be left needing 9 runs in last over with two wickets at hands.

Sunzamul Islam held the nerve and scored 11 including a crucial boundary in the dramatic last over. However, Sri Lanka still got a glimmer of hope when they took out Ebadat Hossain in the fifth ball of the last over, leaving Bangladesh a need of one run in last ball. Sunzamul however scored the winning run to help the side reach 227-9 and kept the series alive.

The third and series-deciding match between the two sides is on October 12.
