Aggressive bodily contact, shoving, agitated yelling, pointed fingers and a shattered dressing room door, all marred the finish and the immediate aftermath during the 6th T20 international of the Nidahas Trophy 2018 between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in Colombo.
The shattered door was the doing of somebody inside the Bangladesh dressing room. An outward-facing camera caught a number of Bangladesh players racing down the steps in front of their dressing room as bits of glass were strewn on the stairs, the door probably having been shattered in those moments.
Match Referee Chris Broad has seen the footage and spoken to some of the catering staff who have named the player they believe to be responsible, but Broad had suggested that those statements could not necessarily be taken as fact for the purposes of his work and has asked for footage from the outside looking in.

Bangladesh’s team management is understood to have offered to pay for the damage.
Earlier, during the match, Mahmudullah finished the game with a maximum as Bangladesh defeated Sri Lanka by two wickets to reach the final of the T20 tri-series where they will meet India for the trophy on Sunday.
