Bangladesh scored 41 for one in the Powerplay in their opening Super 12 match of the T20 World Cup against Sri Lanka at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium today.

Naim was batting on 22 off 21 deliveries while Liton Das got dismissed for 16 off 16 deliveries as Bangladesh put up their second highest Powerplay score of the tournament, the highest being 45 for one against Papua New Guinea in their last first round match.

This 40-run opening partnership was by far Bangladesh's best opening partnership of the current T20 World Cup, the previous best being 11 against Oman.
