Sri Lanka lose final of South Asian Games to Bangladesh

Soumya Sarkar and Co. clinched gold, defeating Sri Lanka by seven wickets in the T20 cricket final of the 13th South Asian Games at Kirtipur today.

Openers Soumya and Saif Hassan gave the team a solid start in chase of Sri Lanka’s 122. Soumya had a good tournament so far but this time failed to capitalize on his good start, falling to Kamindu Mendis after scoring 27 in the eighth over. Saif signaled his intent, hitting two back-to-back sixes in the 11th over but he lost his wicket next over to a run out after scoring 33.
