Slow bowlers did the trick for Bangladesh
In the second innings, Sri Lanka began their proceedings in a promising manner. It was Dimuth Karunaratne (126) who led the second innings for Sri Lanka. The left-handed batsman put up a second wicket partnership of 87 runs with Kusal Mendis (36) before getting knocked out in a Shakib Al Hasan delivery.
Sri Lanka was 146 runs with the loss of two wickets at that time, but from then islanders witnessed a colossal fall, as Shakib and Mustafizur Rahim picked three wickets each and broke the spine of the Sri Lankan batting line-up.
Bangladesh will be trying to knock out the host's second innings before the morning tea session so that they can chase down an assailable total with ease. On the other hand, the major aim of Dilruwan Perera is to extend the Sri Lankan battle till the score reaches 350 to put up a decent fight.
