Dambulla, June 16 -- In the 2nd ODI of the Asia Cup being played in Dambulla, Bangladesh, after winning the toss and electing to bat first, have started off quite well, garnering 59 runs for te loss of one wicket in the first 10 overs. Openers Tamim Iqbal and Imranul Kayes gave their team a brilliant start with 35 runs being scored within the first 3 overs, before Tamim was dismissed off the bowling of Praveen Kumar in the 3rd over, after scoring a quickfire 22 from just 12 balls. Earlier in the day, Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan won the toss and opted to bat at Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium.
