In a thrilling T20I decider between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, Litton Das showcased his brilliance behind the stumps, reminiscent of the legendary MS Dhoni. The match began with Bangladesh winning the toss and opting to bowl first.

Despite Litton’s spectacular run-out of Dasun Shanaka, Sri Lanka posted a formidable total of 174 runs, largely propelled by Kusal Mendis’s explosive innings of 86 runs off 55 balls, including six boundaries and six maximums.

However, Bangladesh’s chase faltered early on as they lost key wickets to Sri Lankan pacer Nuwan Thushara. Litton Das, opening the innings, failed to make a significant impact, leaving Bangladesh reeling at 32 for 6.

Despite valiant efforts from Rishad Hossain, who smashed 53 runs off just 30 balls, and Taskin Ahmed’s contribution of 31 runs, Bangladesh fell short by 28 runs, losing the match and the series 1-2 to Sri Lanka.

Litton Das’s no-look run-out drew comparisons to MS Dhoni, known for his lightning-fast reflexes and game-changing wicketkeeping skills. His moment of brilliance provided a brief spark in an otherwise disappointing outing for Bangladesh, who struggled to match Sri Lanka’s dominance throughout the series.

With the T20I series concluded, both teams will now turn their focus to the upcoming ODI and Test matches, aiming to bounce back and seize control of the bilateral tour. As cricket enthusiasts reflect on Litton Das’s Dhoni-esque run-out, anticipation builds for the remaining contests between these two Asian cricketing rivals.
