Sri Lanka 4-612 at lunch vs Bangladesh

Sri Lanka 4-612 at lunch vs Bangladesh

The visitors took a 200-run lead thanks to centuries from Dhananjaya de Silva, Roshen Silva and Kusal Mendis before declaring at tea on Day 4 and sending Bangladesh to bat.

De Silva made an unbeaten 104 while Mendis hit 83 not out, guiding Sri Lanka to 187-1 at stumps on the second day.

It has been in so many occasions that Bangladesh crumbled under self-inflicted pressure in their second innings after stupendous performance in their first essay.

Scores in the match going into Saturday's fourth day are: Bangladesh 513; Sri Lanka 504-3. Having resumed the day shy of the Bangladesh first innings total by nine runs, they declared at 713 for 9.

Silva's hundred came off 197-balls, with six boundaries and a six, before he was dismissed trying to cut off-spinner Mehidy Hasan (3-173) in the 156th over to end a 115-run partnership with Chandimal.

Imrul Kayes (19) and Tamim Iqbal (41) enjoyed a positive start in making 52 for the first wicket but that good work was undone as the former attempted an ill-advised ramp shot to Dilruwan and was held by leg gully, who had just been moved to that position. The duo shared 135 run stand for the fourth wicket before Mehedi Hasan (3-174) had Roshen caught behind.

Chandimal closed in on his 11 Test century and fifth against Bangladesh to remain unbeaten on 87 at the break.

Suranga Lakmal, the medium pacer, and Rangana Herath, the left-arm spinner, finished with three wickets each.

The loss of Tamim soon after, edging behind off the left-arm wrist-spinner Lakshan Sandakan, came as a bitter blow, and the unfortunate dismissal of Mushfiqur Rahim to Herath for just 2, the ball bouncing off his boot and into the hands of Kusal Mendis at silly point, rounded off a miserable day for the hosts.
