Tillakaratne Dilshan hammered an unbeaten 113 to fire Sri Lanka to an eight-wicket win over Bangladesh in the first one-dayer, marked by a power failure and bees' invasion on Saturday. 

Sri Lankan cricketer Tillakaratne Dilshan (L) plays a shot as Bangladesh cricket captain Mushfiqur Rahim looks on during their opening one-day international (ODI) match at The Suriyawewa Mahinda Rajapakse International Cricket Stadium in Hambantota on March 23, 2013. Dilshan hammered an unbeaten 113 to fire Sri Lanka to an eight-wicket win over Bangladesh.

The opener hit 11 fours in his 15th one-day century as Sri Lanka, chasing a revised target of 238 in 41 overs following the outage, won the day-night match in Hambantota with 32 balls to spare for a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
