The wicket at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium lived up to its pre-match billing of being a result pitch as Bangladesh veteran left-arm spinner reminded all and sundry of the dangers he can pose on a responsive Mirpur wicket by prising out three of the four Sri Lanka wickets to fall before lunch.

The West Indies will hold their first-ever day-night Test match when they face Sri Lanka at the Kensington Oval in Barbados on June 23, according to a release by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC).

Bangladesh have included batsman Sabbir Rahman for the second Test against Sri Lanka to strengthen their batting in the absence of injured all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, a team official said on Monday. Bangladesh brought back Razzak for this game for his first Test in four years, while Dananjaya became the 145th Sri Lankan to play Test cricket. They cashed in on the loose deliveries from Mehidy and Razzak, who were guilty of bowling short on several occasions.

Mendis and de Silva had laid a good platform with their partnership approaching the half-century mark and Bangladesh had to find a way to unsettle the visitors again. That ended a 47-run second-wicket stand and also separated the pair - Kusal Mendis and De Silva - that put on 308 runs in the first innings in Chittagong. One such shot, a slog-sweep for a six off Taijul, helped Mendis bring up an 81-ball fifty. Whereas Sri Lanka have won both their Test matches played at the venue.
