Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka, 2nd Test, Sri Lanka in Bangladesh 2014

Commentary

Match drawn | Bangladesh Vs Sri Lanka Live Score, 2nd Test

The Sri Lankan players pose for the photographs with the trophy. Significant moment for Mathews' men.
Mathews: 'The bowlers did a good job on a flat wicket. There was not much help. I was not really suprised by Bangladesh's fightback. They kept on improving as the game went on. The declaration was not late, not really.'
Sangakkara: 'I think the wicket was good to bat on. That (scoring runs) is my job really. The other batsmen contributed as well. Well it is my first triple, that is special. As a batsman you cannot complain about this track. Hopefully, I will get a few more Tests under my belt, few more matches to win for Sri Lanka and then I will call it a day (when asked of his future plans).'
No prizes for guessing, Kumar Sangakkara is the Man of the Match. He is the Player of the Series as well for his aggregate of 499 runs that included a triple ton, a ton and a fifty.
Rahim: 'Yeah, it was disappointing in the first Test. We had to bat well here in the first innings. Shamsur, Imrul, Shakib all played well. It was not easy to bat on in the final day but I was proud of the way Mominul batted. He applied well in the second innings. Hopefully the boys will put up a good show in the T20s and ODIs which are coming up. I will be going for an X-ray tomorrow. Hopefully, I will be ready for the ODIs.'
Mominul was ably backed up by Shakib, who remained unbeaten on a solid 43. Sri Lanka's spinners exploited the wicket efficiently in the first session. But then Bangladesh got out of jail as the bowlers experienced exhaustion. The hosts' technique and temperament was also quite impressive. Presentation coming at you in a jiffy..
In a nutshell, Sangakkara owned this Test, following up his maiden triple ton with an equally ravishing ton. Just when one thought that it was going to be one way traffic all the way, Bangladesh summoned a gutsy performance to earn a draw. If it was the Shamsur- Kayes show in the first innings, then, Mominul, defying his age, played a battling innings to tame the Sri Lankan spinners and with it erase the chances of defeat that loomed large after the lunch break.
There is a mini conference on the field. The offical word is that both captains have agreed to call it a stalemate. So, Bangladesh salvage a fighting draw but the series falls into Sri Lanka's lap by virtue of their victory in the first Test
84.4 Nuwan Pradeep to Mominul Haque 1
1 run, 3rd Test ton for Mominul! What a gritty knock from the youngster. The fans are up on their feet to salute his effort. His mates in the dressing room are chuffed as well. Mominul reaches the landmark by whipping this length delivery off his pads behind square leg
100 runs for Mominul Haque
84.3 Nuwan Pradeep to Mominul Haque 0
no run, on a length on the stumps, defended to mid-wicket. He has been stranded on 99 for 8 deliveries. Nerves getting the better of Mominul?

no run, fullish and on off, Mominul shapes up for the off-drive but inside edges it to the left of Pradeep
84.1 Nuwan Pradeep to Shakib Al Hasan 1
1 run, length ball on the hips, Shakib looks to heave it to deep mid-wicket but only manages an inside edge that trickles away in front of square leg
