Bangladesh won the opening match of Asia Cup bowling out Sri Lanka for 124 runs to record their biggest win on foreign soil, making a giant leap towards the Super Four round.

Bangladesh will face Afghanistan in their second match of the tournament in the United Arab Emirates on Thursday.

A win for either team will help them finish the group stage with 100% record.

Bangladesh will begin their super 4 leg on Friday against India, and the tight schedule may result in some players to be rested for the game.

Bangladesh will have to do without the services of Tamim Iqbal, forced out of the Asia Cup with an injury, while Mushfiqur, who played a blazing 144-run knock seemed to have been carrying a niggle and is likely to be rested.
