Rohan Damle starred again following his impressive performance on the opening day, as he had the much fancied Sri Lankan batsmen in all sorts of trouble at the SSC grounds in Colombo today(24).

Damle who captured four wickets on the opening day of the competition against Bangladesh followed it up with top figures of 4/10 as Sri Lanka were bundled out for 105 in the 18th over.

Malindu Maduranga and Dinuk Wickramanayake who made identical scores of 32 were the only batsmen to put up some resistance for the hosts.
