Day 1 Round-up: Sri Lanka hit back with four wickets after being bowled out for 222 as bowlers led by Bangladesh spinner Abdur Razzak dominated day one of the second Test in Dhaka on Thursday. Razzak, making a Test return after four years, and fellow left-arm spinner Taijul Islam claimed four wickets each to wrap up the Sri Lankan innings shortly after tea. Sri Lanka paceman Suranga Lakmal then picked up two wickets to leave the hosts tottering at 56-4 at stumps. Liton Das, on 24, and nightwatchman Mehedi Miraz, on five, were batting at close of play. Lakmal drew first blood after taking a return catch off his own bowling to remove Tamim Iqbal for four in just the third ball of the Bangladesh innings. But it was Mominul Haque's run out in the very next over that left the hosts in trouble. Haque, who scored centuries in both innings of the drawn first Test in Chittagong, returned without scoring. Lakmal then bowled Mushfiqur Rahim for one before Dilruwan Perera ended the brief resistance of Imrul Kayes, who made 19. "I think the game is still balanced because we have to take another six wickets, we have to bat another innings and we have to bowl them out in another innings," said Sri Lanka batting coach Thilan Samaraweera. "For me, I think we were 30 runs short. Normally, on a Dhaka wicket 240, 250 is a very good score," he said. Earlier 35-year-old Razzak returned impressive figures of 4-63 to land the opening punch for Bangladesh after the visitors elected to bat first. Taijul complemented Razzak's effort and claimed the final wicket of Roshen Silva, who made 56 after Kusal Mendis top-scored with 68 for the Sri Lanka. Silva was involved in two dogged partnerships with Perera (31) and Akila Dananjaya (20) against a persistent Bangladesh bowling attack. "I think it is definitely a result-oriented wicket and the match, given its current state, may not go in to the fifth day," Razzak said after opening day's play. "It wasn't an unplayable wicket in a larger sense. This type of turn is evident in a lot of places. It wasn't stopping or keeping low," he said. Razzak, who played the last of his previous 12 Tests in 2014, struck three times in the morning session including getting skipper Dinesh Chandimal for a first-ball duck. Mendis brought up his 50 in 81 balls with a six off Taijul but Razzak rocked Sri Lanka with two wickets in two balls.

Commentary (Bangladesh innings)

That's all we have from this game. The action between these two sides isn't over here. They will now lock horns for a 2-match T20I series starting from 15th of February at 1700 Local time (1100 GMT)at the same venue. Before we leave, just reminding you. There is a T20I game going to happen between Australia and England and then later in the evening South Africa and India will clash for the 4th ODI. So suit up and tuck in there if you wish. Until then, goodbye and take care. Cheers!

The trophy is handed over to Chandimal who walks towards the stage and gives to the youngsters. A lot of smiling faces and they thoroughly deserved this, especially with the drubbing hat they had got at the hands of the Indians recently. But all that is past, they have kicked off the new year with a bang. Were down and out at the start of the Tri-Nation Series but then came back in a stunning fashion to win it. And then have continued the winning momentum to have their hands on the Test series as well. Well played, Sri Lanka.

Smiling Lankan skipper, Dinesh Chandimal is all smiles. Starts saying both the games was a nightmare - first one for the bowlers, second for the batters. Is happy to come out on top here. Informs they knew they are going to get a turning track in the second Test but opines they had experienced spinners in their armory to counter it. Lauds Roshen Silva for the way he has put his hands up. Has a word for Akila Dananjaya who had a dream debut and thanks the support staff as well. Ends saying it was a collective team effort from everyone.

Man of the Match and Series, Roshen Silva thanks the Almighty first and is happy that his side won the all-important toss. Feels the wicket was really difficult to bat on but he says he didn't think about that much and just played his natural game. Credits the lower-middle order (Lakmal, Herath and Dananjaya) to not its wicket away. States they hung in out there and added crucial 20-30 runs with him which is gold on such a surface.

Bangladesh skipper, Mahmudullah is really disappointed with their batting effort. Adds they knew the pitch will force a result but rues to not give a fight. Further adds on such kind of pitches it's important to do well in the first innings which unfortunately they couldn't and that is where they lost the game. Appreciates his bowlers for the way they have bowled. Appreciates Mominul Haque and reckons he is a good player of the spin. Ends by saying there are a lot of positives to take from this game and hopes they do well in future.

With over 5 sessions to go and the pitch starting to spit venom, the result was certain. Bangladesh needed 339 to win and had their backs firmly against the wall. Agreed, they were already under the pump but going down without a fight is something you don't expect from the team that has shown promising signs, especially at home in the recent past. Tough loss for Bangladesh but rejoice for Sri Lanka. Stick with us for the presentation...

In reply, Bangladesh got steamrolled at the blink of an eye. From 107/5, they got folded for a scanty 110. The fact that Mehidy Hasan remained unbeaten on 38, tells us how less their batters could contribute. Lakmal, yes, the pacer was the one to start the downfall and then Perera and Dananjaya took over. This gave Sri Lanka a massive 112-run lead and all they had to do was to stretch it like elastic. It wasn't a good show from their batsmen on a spinning surface but they managed to stand there for a while. Roshen Silva once again stole the show and marshalled the lower order, only to remain stranded on 70.

After a docile pitch in Chittagong where the game ended in a tame draw, the story was completely contrasting in Dhaka. Chandimal won the all-important toss but his batters could just amass 222 on the board, with Kusal Mendis and Roshen Silva scoring fifties. Abdur Razzak, the comeback man, was the star for the hosts as he ran through the Lankan batting line-up along with Taijul Islam. Both the spinners bagged 8 wickets between them.

What a thumping win for the Lankans to seal the series. All it took for them was just 177 BALLS today to wrap the hosts up. The veteran, Rangana Herath was kept quiet in the first essay but boy, he came out breathing fire to dismantle the opposition. He led the charge from the front, picking up a 4-fer and then debutant Akila Dananjaya applied the finishing touches by having some more fun. He ruled the roost and made his debut game a memorable one as he now holds the record for most wickets on debut by a Lankan.

29.3 R Herath to Islam, OUT! In the air... taken! Rangana Herath becomes the highest wicket-taker amongst left-arm bowlers. What a feat! goes past Wasim Akram. He is congratulated by his mates as SRI LANKA BEAT BANGLADESH BY 215 RUNS! Tossed up outside off, Islam gets down and plays the slog sweep. Gets good connection but Gunathilaka at deep mid-wicket stays calm and takes a well-judged catch before the celebration begins. 123/10

29.2 R Herath to Islam, FOUR! Islam is having some fun out there! Tossed up outside off, Taijul gets down and nails the reverse sweep through backward point for a boundary. 123/9

29.1 R Herath to Rahman, Bye! Slower through the air, landed outside off, Taijul gets down to play the big slog but the ball goes under his bat and through the legs of the keeper to fine leg. A bye taken. 119/9

28.6 A Dananjaya to Rahman, Another wild slog sweep, mistimed to deep mid-wicket. A single taken. 118/9

28.5 A Dananjaya to Rahman, FOUR! Up and over. Some fun now. Full and outside off, Mustafizur swings and swings hard to get it over mid on for a boundary. 117/9

Mustafizur Rahman walks out to bat as the innings fizzes out to a close.

28.4 A Dananjaya to Hasan, OUT! Forget the drop, this one is a catch! Variation from Akila. He bowls the leg spinner, outside off and Mehidy does not pick it. Just lunges to defend and gets a thin outside edge to the keeper behind. Another wonderful catch and AKILA DANANJAYA NOW HAS THE BEST BOWLING FIGURES IN A MATCH BY A SRI LANKAN ON TEST DEBUT. 113/9

28.3 A Dananjaya to Hasan, DROPPED? Perhaps. Full and around off, Hasan lunges to defend but the ball goes off the gloves to short leg. Kusal Mendis comes forward for the catch but is unable to hang on. 113/8

28.2 A Dananjaya to Hasan, SIX! Just over the man! For a moment one felt the fielder had it covered. Mehidy came down the track and looked to play the slog. He made good connection but seemed to get more height than distance. Danushka Gunathilaka at the mid-wicket fence came running in initially, then went back. Leapt but the ball eluded him, beyond the ropes. 113/8

28.1 A Dananjaya to Islam, Full and on leg stump, pushed towards mid on for a quick single. 107/8

27.6 R Herath to Hasan, The batsman fails to get bat on that one and is hit on the pad. 106/8

27.5 R Herath to Hasan, That's hit the batsman on his pads. 106/8

27.4 R Herath to Islam, Played to the point region by the batsman. One run added to the total. 106/8

27.3 R Herath to Islam, The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 105/8

27.2 R Herath to Islam, Full and outside off again, watchfully defended. 105/8

27.1 R Herath to Hasan, Full and outside off, Mehidy looks to defend but the ball goes off the inside edge, past the off stump to fine leg. A single taken. 105/8

26.6 A Dananjaya to Islam, Forward defense to end the over. 104/8

26.5 A Dananjaya to Islam, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 104/8

Taijul Islam in at number 10.

26.4 A Dananjaya to Razzak, OUT! The foot is on the line! Why weren't you confident, Dikka? Razzak has his name registered in the sheet as well - the train out of Dhaka. The 7 before him look like confirming it last evening itself. Full and outside off, Razzak gets down and attempts the slog sweep again. He misses and the keeper whips the bails off. He appeals towards the square leg umpire more out of habit, keeps looking at where Razzak's foot is but does not seem confident. Replays show that Razzak's foot went out of the crease, came back, but could not cross the line. What a debut for Dananjaya. 104/8

Number 8? There is a stumping appeal, though Dickwella does not look all that confident.

26.3 A Dananjaya to Razzak, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 104/7

26.2 A Dananjaya to Razzak, Ohhh.... nearly! Full and straight, skids low, Razzak looks to play the almighty slog sweep but the ball hits the inside edge and scoots past the leg stump to fine leg! Two runs taken. 104/7

Abdur Razzak walks in now. What role can he play in the wicket fest?

26.1 A Dananjaya to S Rahman, OUT! One more. Number 7 for Bangladesh and number 7 for Dananjaya in this Test. This is landed outside off and Sabbir comes down the track to defend. The ball lands, bounces, takes the inside edge, deflects onto the pads and then lobs to short leg. Thanks for coming. 102/7

Mehidy Hasan walks in at number 8, replacing Rahim.

25.6 R Herath to Rahim, OUT! Number 6 goes too! Must be some train leaving from Dhaka. Every batsman is in a hurry. The option of coming down the track far too often has gone against Rahim. Herath lands it on the rough outside off and Mushfiqur is not to the pitch of it. Is beaten comfortably and the ball spins off the rough, goes past the outside edge and Niroshan Dickwella whips off the bails in a flash. WICKET NUMBER 414 FOR HERATH IN TESTS, joint-most with Wasim Akram in terms of dismissals by left-arm bowlers. 102/6

25.5 R Herath to Rahim, The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot. 102/5

25.4 R Herath to Rahim, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 102/5

25.3 R Herath to Rahim, Quicker ball, the arm ball, defended from the crease. 102/5

25.2 R Herath to Rahim, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 102/5

25.1 R Herath to Rahim, Full and outside off, watchfully defended. 102/5

24.6 A Dananjaya to Rahim, Outside off, chopped down to backward point for a single. 25 overs - top half gone. How many overs before the bottom half departs? Don't think Bangladesh could play their 'full' quota of 50 overs. 102/5

24.5 A Dananjaya to Rahim, Full and outside off, watchfully defended. 101/5

24.4 A Dananjaya to M Rahim, Comes down the track this time and pushes it towards mid on. 101/5

24.3 A Dananjaya to Rahim, Oohhh... too much fancying. Gets across his stumps, tries to paddle but misses it completely. Luckily for him, the ball misses the leg stump. 101/5

24.2 A Dananjaya to Rahman, Full and around off, swept powerfully past short leg, behind square leg for a single to get off the mark and pair. 101/5

Sabbir Rahman is the new man in at number 7, replacing his captain. On a pair, is Sabbir.

24.1 A Dananjaya to Mahmudullah, OUT! Oh dear... half the side gone now! Mahmudullah comes down the track once again but perhaps a second early. Dananjaya sees that and bowls the ball just a bit wider, which means the captain has to reach out to defend. Manages to make contact with the ball but it is off an edge. Straight to first slip. 100/5

23.6 R Herath to M Rahim, FOUR! Very dangerous. The arm ball, skids on after pitching, Rahim goes back to cut and almost takes it from the off stump. Gets it behind point and raises the BANGLADESH 100. 239 more needed. The partnership is now worth 22 from just 19 balls. 100/4

23.5 R Herath to Rahim, FOUR! Rahim into the attack. Comes down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball and lofts it over cover for a boundary! 96/4

23.4 R Herath to Rahim, Very full, another smothering defense. 92/4

23.3 R Herath to Rahim, On off, pushed back to the bowler. 92/4

23.2 R Herath to M Rahim, EDGED, BUT SHORT! All happening out here. Full and outside off, Rahim pushes forward to defend but the ball spins away and takes the outside edge. However, Rahim's luck causes the ball to land short of a diving second slip. 92/4

23.1 R Herath to Rahim, Full and outside off, pushed towards cover. 92/4

22.6 A Dananjaya to Mahmudullah, FOUR! Nicely done. Comes down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball, converts it into a full toss and drives it through the covers for a quadruple of a single. 92/4

22.5 A Dananjaya to Rahim, Pushes this past the bowler towards long on for one. 88/4

22.4 A Dananjaya to Mahmudullah, The batsman rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball for a run. 87/4

22.3 A Dananjaya to Mahmudullah, The batsman has edged that one. 86/4

22.2 A Dananjaya to Rahim, The reverse sweep being employed, towards point for a run. 86/4

22.1 A Dananjaya to Mahmudullah, Outside off, tapped to point for a single. 85/4

21.6 R Herath to Rahim, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 84/4

21.5 R Herath to Rahim, FOUR! Controlled sweep. Full and around off, Rahim gets down and gets it over mid-wicket for a boundary. 84/4

21.4 R Herath to Rahim, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 80/4

21.3 R Herath to Mahmudullah, DROPPED? Nope. Outside off, Mahmudullah looks to drive and the ball shoots low, beating the outside edge. Dickwella gets low but cannot collect. A bye taken. 80/4

21.2 R Herath to Mahmudullah, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 79/4

21.1 R Herath to Rahim, Driven through mid off by the batsman. One run added to the total. 79/4

Rangana Herath gets a change of ends.

20.6 A Dananjaya to Mahmudullah, That's hit the batsman on his pads. 78/4

In walks the captain. Mahmudullah needs more than a captain's knock.

20.5 A Dananjaya to L Das, OUT! This time Chittagong and Dhaka unite to connect bat and ball! This is happening all too quickly. Dananjaya has struck in his first over. He lands the ball outside off and Das goes back to defend. But there is extra bounce on that and the wicketkeeper batsman can only fend it straight to short leg. 6 more wickets for a big win. 78/4

20.4 A Dananjaya to Das, Comes down the track to defend but misses and is hit on the pads. The ball lobs to short leg and Dickwella is already appealing even before the catch is taken. The distance between bat and ball could be that of between Chittagong and Dhaka. 78/3

20.3 A Dananjaya to Das, A touch wide outside off, Das lunges and blocks. 78/3

20.2 A Dananjaya to Das, Full and outside off, pushed towards mid off. 78/3

20.1 A Dananjaya to Das, Full on middle, clipped through mid-wicket where Dhananjaya de Silva dives to his right and stops it. 78/3

Akila Dananjaya into the attack now.

19.6 D Perera to Rahim, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 78/3

19.5 D Perera to Rahim, A mild appeal for LBW, but turned down. Landed outside off, Rahim goes back to defend but misses and is hit on the pads. Too high. 78/3

19.4 D Perera to Rahim, Around off, Rahim goes back and blocks. 78/3

19.3 D Perera to Das, A tad short, Liton goes back and works it behind square leg for a single. 78/3

19.2 D Perera to Das, Full and outside off, Das reaches out and steers it through the covers for a couple. There is definitely some urgency in the running. Aggressive cricket does not always mean boundaries. 77/3

19.1 D Perera to Das, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 75/3

18.6 R Herath to Das, Driven through mid off by the batsman. They pick up a single. 6 runs from that over but risk-free. Much better cricket from Bangladesh. 75/3

18.5 R Herath to Das, Comes down the track and works it wide of mid on for a brace again. 74/3

18.4 R Herath to Das, Full on middle again, Liton lunges to defend but the ball goes off the inside edge past short leg. Two runs taken. 72/3

18.3 R Herath to Das, Full on middle, pushed back a bit uppishly towards the bowler. 70/3

18.2 R Herath to Das, Landed outside off, spinning away, Das lunges to defend but misses. 70/3

18.1 R Herath to Rahim, Outside off, pushed through point for a quick single. 70/3

17.6 D Perera to Rahim, Ahhh... Landed outside off, Rahim lunges to play the flick but gets a leading edge which goes behind point. A run taken. 69/3

17.5 D Perera to Das, Similar shot, this time it is played wide of mid-wicket, towards long on for a single. 68/3

17.4 D Perera to Das, Comes down the track now and pushes it towards short mid-wicket. 67/3

17.3 D Perera to Das, Very full outside off, almost a yorker, dabbed back to the bowler. 67/3

17.2 D Perera to Das, Fuller, Das comes forward, pushes it wide of mid off, calls 'Two! Two! Two! Two! Two!' and gets them. 67/3

17.1 D Perera to Das, Landed outside off, spinning in, defended towards short mid-wicket. 65/3

16.6 R Herath to Rahim, Stays back in his crease and defends. 65/3

16.5 R Herath to Rahim, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 65/3

16.4 R Herath to Rahim, Comes forward and dead-bats it. 65/3

16.3 R Herath to Das, Pushed to the cover region by the batsman. One run added to the total. 65/3

16.2 R Herath to Das, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 64/3

Liton Das walks in next, at number 5, to face the music.

16.1 R Herath to Haque, OUT! Who is waiting till 1210 IST? Mominul is out of here. Number 3 goes. And boy, Herath is pumped up. Full and outside off, Mominul pushes at it and misses. Doesn't seem like there is an edge but my colleague Jazzy B is confident that he has heard a noise. Sure enough. Herath and Dickwella go up and the umpire agrees! Mominul does not wait to challenge and walks off. Snickometer shows a tiny spike. Wow. A wicket quickly after the break. Either there is too much wax in my ear or Jazzy B has a wonderful hearing capacity. 64/3

15.6 D Perera to Rahim, Very full, on middle and leg, flicked towards short mid-wicket but short leg gets a leg to it. 64/2

15.5 D Perera to Rahim, Similar shot, gets it past leg gully but does not take the single. 64/2

15.4 D Perera to Rahim, Goes back and works it towards leg gully. 64/2

15.3 D Perera to Rahim, The batsman has attempted to put bat on ball - but fails. 64/2

15.2 D Perera to Rahim, Full and outside off, Rahim comes forward and flicks it straight to short mid-wicket. 64/2

15.1 D Perera to Haque, The batsman has flicked the ball off his pads. One run added to the total. 64/2

Dilruwan Perera to continue from the other end.

14.6 R Herath to Rahim, Short and outside off, slow away turn, Rahim looks to cut but is beaten. 63/2

14.5 R Herath to M Haque, Full and outside off, Mominul looks to defend but the ball goes off the outside edge, past slip to third man. A run taken. 63/2

14.4 R Herath to M Rahim, Another inside edge. MR lunges to defend again and the inside edge goes behind square leg. A single taken. 62/2

14.3 R Herath to M Rahim, 'AIYOOOO!' laments Niroshan Dickwella. Close, very close. Landed outside off, Mushfiqur comes forward to defend. But the ball comes in a touch, takes the inside edge and hits the pads. It then rolls back but just misses the off stump! 61/2

14.2 R Herath to Rahim, FOUR! Up and over. No waiting game. This is just the second ball of the session but Rahim is taking Herath on. Comes down the track and smashes this over the top for a boundary. 278 more runs needed. The stand moves to 12. 61/2

14.1 R Herath to M Rahim, The arm ball to start the session, on middle and off, Rahim looks to defend but the ball skids on and goes off the inside edge. Lands in front of short leg. 57/2

The players are out on the field. Rangana Herath to start off proceedings to Mushfiqur Rahim. Here we go.

Welcome back. 7 sessions, 32 wickets. By that calculation, Bangladesh could be 6 or 7 down by Tea. Can they stall the wicket flow? Keep the Lankans wicketless for one session at least? The pitch is not the most difficult to bat on but the home side is making it look like a minefield.

... DAY 3, SESSION 2 ...

One can understand Bangladesh's thinking - attack initially so that the bowlers, especially the spinners, are taken off their lengths and bowl short. But there has to be some proper choice of shots. Cannot attack every ball. Mominul Haque is showing how to play on this pitch and it is nowhere near to the Imrul Kayes' method. Join us back at 1210 local (0610 GMT) for the second session.

Sri Lanka won't mind. The bowling has been excellent so far, being stump-to-stump, with the only complaint being that of Dinesh Chandimal being too defensive with his field placements. As many as 5 of his fielders are protecting the boundary.

Bangladesh did the right thing this morning, wrapping up the Lankan tail for not too many runs. But then, they have come out with an attitude which suggests that they want to chase down 339 tonight itself. Almost every ball, a stroke is being attempted, just to push the fielding captain into being defensive. And the result is that they have lost 2 wickets in 14 overs. Could have lost more, had the Lankans held on to their catches.

Another exhilarating session of cricket. 83 runs, 4 wickets, 25.5 overs. The striking rate with both, bat and ball has been excellent.

13.6 D Perera to Haque, The batsman works it down the leg side. LUNCH ON DAY 3! 57/2

13.5 D Perera to Haque, Outside off, punched off the back foot. 57/2

13.4 D Perera to Haque, The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 57/2

13.3 D Perera to Haque, Full and outside off, watchfully defended. 57/2

13.2 D Perera to Rahim, The batsman has played it to the point region for a single. 57/2

13.1 D Perera to Rahim, NOT OUT. No inside edge. Snicko confirms. Cannot blame the Sri Lankans. Almost every ball looks like it will produce a wicket. A tad short, around off, spinning in, Rahim goes back to flick but he misses. The ball goes off something and Kusal Mendis at short leg dives to take it. The Lankans appeal for the catch but the umpire shakes his head. Mendis is confident and Chandimal immediately goes for the review. However, Snickometer does not detect any spike when the ball is near the bat. Review lost by Sri Lanka. 56/2

Is that out? Sri Lanka are confident that they have another. The umpire does not think so and the visitors are taking a review against a caught decision.

12.6 R Herath to Haque, The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 56/2

12.5 R Herath to Haque, Full on middle, pushed straight to mid on. 56/2

12.4 R Herath to Haque, Played to the mid-wicket region by the batsman. 56/2

12.3 R Herath to Haque, Another LBW appeal. Full and down the leg side, Mominul looks to defend but misses and is hit on the pads. Going down the leg side. 56/2

12.2 R Herath to Rahim, The batsman charges down the wicket. One run added to the total. 56/2

12.1 R Herath to Haque, Driven towards the mid on region. The batsmen have run through for a single. 55/2

11.6 D Perera to Rahim, FOUR BYES! Full and down the leg side, Rahim looks to play the reverse sweep but misses. The ball goes down the leg side, beats the keeper and also beats the leg slip to the fine leg fence. 54/2

11.5 D Perera to Rahim, Full and outside off, watchfully defended. 50/2

11.4 D Perera to Rahim, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 50/2

11.3 D Perera to Rahim, The batsman works it down the leg side. 50/2

11.2 D Perera to Rahim, Outside off, Rahim looks to play the reverse sweep but misses it by a long distance. 50/2

11.1 D Perera to M Haque, Full and outside off, driven through the covers for a single. 50/2

10.4 R Herath to Rahim, The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 49/2

Mushfiqur Rahim walks in at number 4, replacing Kayes.

10.3 Herath to Kayes, OUT! Brilliant catch! And the veteran has his first in the game. You can never keep him out of the contest. After a wicketless first innings, Herath has struck in his third over in the second. Full and outside off, Kayes pushes at it and gets a thin outside edge. This time Niroshan Dickwella reacts in a flash to take the catch and immediately leaps in jubilation. The dropped catch earlier does not count much. Kayes never looked comfortable - today, day before yesterday or even in the first Test. 49/2

10.2 R Herath to Kayes, SIX! BRUTAL! Full and outside off, Kayes comes down the track and lofts it down the ground for a biggie! 49/1

10.1 R Herath to Kayes, Full and around off, Kayes looks to defend but the ball goes off the inner half of the bat towards short leg. 43/1

8.5 R Herath to Kayes, Now the reverse sweep comes out, played through point for a single. 40/1

8.4 R Herath to Haque, ANOTHER EDGE, ANOTHER DROP! Sri Lanka look like picking up a wicket every ball. This is pitched outside off, Mominul looks to defend but the ball spins away a touch to take the outside edge. The ball goes onto Niroshan Dickwella's pads, then deflects towards Dimuth Karunaratne at first slip, who is not able to hang on again. 39/1

8.3 R Herath to Haque, Full and around off, worked towards short leg. 38/1

7.1 D Perera to M Haque, FOUR! Lucky again! Bangladesh are flirting with danger. Outside off, Mominul looks to cut but the ball is too close for that shot to be played.

Here comes the senior citizen. Wicketless in the first innings. Revenge in the second? Rangana Herath on to bowl.

5.6 D Perera to Kayes, EDGED? DROPPED! Oh dear... could have been two down. Beautiful from Dilruwan. Tosses it up outside off, Kayes looks to flick but the ball lands on middle, then spins away, takes the outside edge and goes to the right of first slip. But Dimuth Karunaratne cannot hang on. 24/1

5.4 D Perera to Haque, Full and just around off, watchfully defended. 23/1

5.1 D Perera to Haque, Full and outside off, pushed towards cover. 23/1

4.5 S Lakmal to Kayes, Shot, but a dot. Full and outside off, Kayes plays a glorious-looking cover drive but finds the fielder in that position. 23/1

3.4 D Perera to Kayes, FOUR! Ok... time for some fun. Out of nowhere, Kayes comes down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball and lofts it over cover for a boundary. 319 more to win. 20/1

3.3 D Perera to Kayes, Very full, smothered to the leg side. 16/1

2.3 S Lakmal to Haque, The batsman chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump. 12/1

1.2 D Perera to Haque, Played to the mid-wicket region by the batsman. They manage to come back for the second. 5/1

Mominul Haque walks in to face the hat-trick ball. Dilruwan had taken a wicket on the last ball of the previous innings.

1.1 D Perera to Iqbal, OUT! Umpire's call stays and Tamim has to depart! One down, 9 more to go. Pretty straight ball, Tamim gets forward to defend, thinking he has covered the line but misses. Is hit right in front of the sticks and the Lankans go up in an LBW appeal. The umpire raises his finger quickly enough and Tamim asks his partner about the impact. One guesses Kayes would have said the impact is outside off because the camera focuses on Tamim who signals for the review. Naked eye seems to show that the impact is outside off but the Hawk Eye shows it to be umpire's call. Ahh.... tough luck. The review is retained but Bangladesh would wish Tamim could be detained at the crease. 3/1

HOWZZAAAAAAAATTTTT????? Gone! Oh wait... Tamim has asked for an LBW review.

Dilruwan Perera to bowl from the other end.

0.5 S Lakmal to Iqbal, Played to the point region by the batsman. 2/0

0.4 S Lakmal to Iqbal, Half-hearted appeal for caught behind. On a length outside off, TI feels for it but misses. The ball comes back in a long way and Sri Lanka appeal, without any conviction though. 2/0

0.3 S Lakmal to Iqbal, Full and way outside off, Iqbal keeps his bat behind the pad and lets it go. 2/0

0.2 S Lakmal to Iqbal, Outside off, left alone. 2/0

0.1 S Lakmal to Iqbal, Down the leg side, flicked through the leg side for a couple. Bangladesh and Tamim are up and running straightaway. 2/0
