Bangladesh sends in Sri Lanka

Bangladesh won the toss and sent Sri Lanka in to bat Wednesday at Dhaka's Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in the third match of a triangular limited-overs international series that also features Zimbabwe.
The match was reduced to 31 overs per team and was scheduled to start at 0615 GMT, after heavy morning fog delayed the start by three and a quarter hours.
Bangladesh, which must win the match to make Friday's final, replaced Nazmul Hossain with rookie seamer Rubel Hossain, 19, who makes his international debut. Middle-order batsman Mahmudullah Riyad was also recalled in place of Mehrab Hossain.
Sri Lanka went with the same team that trounced Zimbabwe by 130 runs in the second match Monday.
Zimbabwe beat Bangladesh by 38 runs in the opening match.
