# Chanaka Welegedara, with five wickets at 21.00 runs apiece, is the leading wicket-taker in the competition.

# Tharanga (118 not out) has recorded his third century against Bangladesh - his eighth in ODIs.

# Tharanga has registered six hundreds for a winning cause. His unbeaten 118 is his highest innings in Bangladesh and his second highest -- his career-best being the 120 against England at Lord's on June 17, 2006.

# Tharanga has got his sixth Man of the Match award in ODIs -- his third against Bangladesh.

# Tharanga and Jayawardene were involved in a stand of 215 for the first wicket, which is a record for the first wicket against Bangladesh in Bangladesh, obliterating the 143 between Herschelle Gibbs and Graeme Smith for South Africa at Chittagong on March 9, 2008.

# The 215-run partnership is a first-wicket record for Sri Lanka against Bangladesh, bettering the 201 between Sanath Jayasuriya and Kumar Sangakkara at Karachi on June 30, 2008.

# The partnership is the highest for any wicket against Bangladesh in Bangladesh, outstripping the 205 for the third wicket by Pakistan pair, Ijaz Ahmed and Moin-ul-Atiq at Chittagong on October 29, 1988.

# Jayawardene (108 off 117 balls) recorded his 12th century in ODIs -- his first against Bangladesh. He has posted nine hundreds on foreign soil and three in Sri Lanka.

# Jayawardene enjoys an excellent record -- all his twelve

hundreds have resulted in the victories.

# Both the openers scoring hundreds for Sri Lankan against Bangladesh in the same innings -- a feat happened for the second time - the first occasion was the 2008 Karachi ODI when Sanath Jayasuriya (130) and Sangakkara (121) had made hundreds.
