Bangladesh is one of the rising cricket teams in the shortest format of the game and is currently placed at the number 9th position in the ICC T20 team ranking. The team has achieved some good success in the last couple of years and has often shown improvement in their performance. Bangladesh achieved the record of their highest run chase in the match against Sri Lanka at Colombo (RPS) on 10 Mar 2018 where they successfully achieved the target of 200+ runs and made 215.
While batting first, Sri Lanka batters showed some awesome performance and added 214 runs on the scoreboard. Sri Lanka cricket fans thought that they had the upper hand in the match but Bangladesh batters replied to them very loudly, especially Mushfiqur Rahim who struck match-winning 72 runs from just 35 balls. After getting a good start from their opener Tamim Iqbal and Litton Das, who contributed 74 runs in a pair for the 1st wicket, Mushfiqur Rahim at the number 4th position did the rest of the work and thus Bangladesh achieved the target and made 215 runs as their highest chase in T20 by Bangladesh.
