Sri Lanka on top after Day 1 of second Test

by Sahir Usman Nov 30, -0001 • 00:00 AM

Mushfiqur Rahim hung around for a rather fortuitous 22-ball 1, but his luck finally ran out when he shouldered arms to Lakmal only to see his off-stump splattered. 

At that time, Bangladesh were 12/3, but Imrul Kayes and Das staged a brief revival with a 33-run partnership for the fourth wicket. However, late in the day, Kayes was trapped in front for 19 off Perera, and Sri Lanka walked back in the happier side.

Brief Scores

Sri Lanka 1st innings 222 (Kusal Mendis 68, Roshen Silva 56; Abdur Razzak 4/63, Taijul Islam 4/83) vs Bangladesh 1st innings 56/4 (Liton Das 24 not out, Imrul Kayes 19; Suranga Lakmal 2/15).
