NOTTINGHAM, England: Former Sri Lanka skipper Mahela Jayawardene top-scored with 43 to lead his team to a tense four-wicket win over Bangladesh in a World Twenty20 warm-up on Tuesday.

After Tillakaratne Dilshan and Sanath Jayasuriya put on 34 for the opening wicket, Jayawardene looked poised and powerful in his innings, even hitting Mahmudullah for 15 in the eighth over.

Earlier, Mushfiqur Rahim and Raqibul Hasan rescued Bangladesh with a 70-run sixth wicket partnership to help their team post 151-6. Bangladesh were 17-2 by the third over with openers Tamim Iqbal, who took three boundaries off Farveez Maharoof’s first over, and Junaid Siddique back in the pavilion. Raqibul finished unbeaten on 38 while Mushfiqur hit 34. Mashrafe Mortaza struck two straight fours to get the score above 150.
