Sri Lanka U19s clinched the 5 match series against the visiting Bangladeshis when they won the 5th ODI by 19 runs on the D/L method.
With plenty of rain around in Katunayake, the visitors opted to field first at the Marians Cricket Grounds. They seemed to have a strangle hold on the Sri Lanka U19s with Sajid Hossain picking up two wickets for the visitors.
Sonal Dinusha who has been in decent form throughout the series made 28 runs while Ravindu Rasantha chipped in with 22, but it was the class of the stylish left handed Kamil Mishara that helped Sri Lanka U19s go pas the 200 run mark on a tricky surface.
Mishara who has been struggling for form throughout the series finally came good as he hit a controlled 83 with Sri Lanka U19 making a competitive 205/7 in their allotted 50 overs.
Sri Lanka U19 205/7 (50) Kamil Mishara 83, Sonal Dinusha 28, Ravindu Rasantha 22, Sajid Hossain 2/39
