14 wickets fall on bowlers dominated day one in Dhaka

14 wickets fall on bowlers dominated day one in Dhaka

Roshen Silva (58 not out), however, fought hard and kept Sri Lanka ahead with Suranga Lakmal (7 not out) for company at the close of play.

Bangladesh's highest successful fourth-innings chase was 215 in 2009 against the West Indies.

The Tigers lost their last five wickets in the space of just three runs, as Mehidy Hasan Miraz saw his fellow batsmen tamely surrender before the Lions. Haque, who scored centuries in both innings of the drawn first Test in Chittagong, returned without scoring.

Every run Sri Lanka could get would be valuable with the pitch showing no signs of let up for the batsman.

In one of the more comical cricket moments of late, Bangladeshi batsman Mushfiqur Rahim inside-edged one onto his pad, the ball looped into the air and Dickwella inexplicably grassed it, summing up an awesome first day's play that saw 14 wickets fell. However, Taijul was too much to handle for the middle order while Mustafizur Rahman (2-17) also picked two wickets as Sri Lanka were bowled out for 222.

He hit nine fours in his nearly chanceless knock, facing 94 balls as his teammates struggled in the middle.

After Bangladesh was dismissed for 110, opener Dimuth Karunaratne gave Sri Lanka a solid start with Dhananjaya de Silva, who made 28.

Sri Lankan wicket-keeper Niroshan Dickwella had a moment to forget during their Test match against Bangladesh as he dropped one can only be described as a clanger.

Silva combined with captain Dinesh Chandimal, 30, for 51 runs to extend their dominance.

Akila Dananjaya took 3-20, Lakmal 3-25 and Dilruwan Perera 2-32.

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.
