Sri Lanka dismiss Bangladesh for 110 to take big lead

Sri Lankan batsman Kusal Mendis left bats during the first day of the second and final cricket test against Bangladesh in Dhaka Bangladesh Thursday Feb. 8 2018

The Sri Lankans scored 222 in its first innings after winning the toss and deciding to bat.

"For me, I think we were 30 runs short".

The Sri Lankan however said that he did not quite understand why Tigers built such a wicket and compared it to roads in Sri Lanka. We bowled them out for 100 and we wanted to get more than 300-plus runs (as a target) actually.

Bangladesh allrounder Mehidy Hasan believed his side could pull off a record chase.

"We have the belief".

Every run Sri Lanka could get would be valuable with the pitch showing no signs of let up for the batsman. "On Sri Lanka's soil it is always tough to chase something like 200, so when we can chase nearly 200 in Sri Lanka why can't we chase 300-plus in our own backyard?"

The visitors will look to strike early on the second day and secure a good first innings lead.

It has therefore to accept all the rules and the obligations until the end of the transition. However, Michel Barnier gave a blunt assessment of the situation in Brussels earlier today.

"They", Mehidy said, "put the ball in right areas more consistently that we do".

Sri Lanka were in trouble at 105 for four at the interval after captain Dinesh Chandimal elected to bat in the final Test of the series at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

Opening batsman Dimuth Karunaratne, who had survived till this point, scored 32 runs before he was caught by Imrul Kayes at midwicket off the bowling of Mehidy.

Sri Lanka handed Akila Dananjaya a Test debut for Lakshan Sandakan and bolstered their batting by bringing in Danushka Gunathilaka for pace bowler Lahiru Kumara.

Resuming Friday on 4-56, Bangladesh lost 5-3 in three overs to give Sri Lanka a big lead on a pitch offering turn and bounce.

Mehedi Miraz, who was sent in as nightwatchman on day one, remained unbeaten on 38 - the highest score in the Bangladesh innings.

The session belonged to Dananjaya, who is playing his first Test after 19 one-day internationals and nine Twenty20 games, returning impressive figures of 3-20 with his off-spin.
