Dhaka: Runs continue to leak from Tillakaratne Dilshan's bat as the dashing opener struck a composed 104 to steer Sri Lanka to a comprehensive seven-wicket win over Bangladesh in the opening match of the tri-series in Mirput on Monday.
Chasing 261 to win, the Lankans cruised to the win with 5.1 overs to spare as their top order batted well to ensure they make a winning start to the tournament.
Dilshan's knock, his sixth one-day century, came off 122 balls with 12 boundaries as he almost batted through the innings. He fell when Lanka needed just 19 runs to win.
It was Dilshan's third hundred in the last six innings he has played and sounded a warning for India against whom the Lankans will play the next match of the tournament on Tuesday.
