The Asia Cup in Bangladesh actually turned out to be a rather interesting two weeks, with four Test-playing sides and Afghanistan providing oodles of entertainment, some surprises, and some exciting individual efforts.
Sri Lanka won the Asia Cup final by five wickets in Dhaka on Saturday, beating Pakistan with nearly four overs to spare thanks to a fine century from Lahiru Thirimanne as they reached the 261 required.
Captain Angelo Mathews delighted in Sri Lanka's three-wicket success over Bangladesh in Wednesday's important Asia Cup fixture in Mirpur, Dhaka.
Sri Lanka maintained their unbeaten record at the Asia Cup, but only just, as they beat Bangladesh by three wickets and one over to spare thanks to skipper Angelo Mathews' unbeaten 74.
Sri Lanka recorded 253 for six in their Asia Cup match against Afghanistan, a middling batting effort, but managed to defend that as they won by 129 runs and bowled the crowd favourites out for 124 to reach the final.
