Bangladesh finished Day 4 of the second Test at Chittagong finishing at 12 for no loss, chasing a mammoth target of 467 set by Sri Lanka.

 

Earlier in the day Ajantha Mendis gave Sri Lanka a substantial first Innings lead after polishing off the Bangladesh tail cheaply, finishing with a six wicket haul.

 

Sri Lanka were in the pursuit of quick runs and lost a couple of wickets early in their innings but the first innings triple-centurion  Kumar Sangakkara continued piling the runs with able support from the out-of-from Dinesh Chandimal at the other end. Sangakkara became only the second batsman in Test history to score a triple-century and a century in the same match.

 

Chandimal used this opportunity to score a century to return to run-scoring ways while skipper Angelo Mathews was in a punishing mood against the hapless Bangladesh attack, playing a fine cameo towards the end. Declaring their second innings at 305 for four, Sri Lanka set the hosts an improbable target of 467. Openers Tamim Iqbal and Shamsur Rahman started cautiously and finished the day’s play with the score on 12, needing a further 455 runs.

 

Sri Lanka are in pole position to wrap up a 2-0 series win barring a stiff resistance from Bangladesh, as witnessed by their top order in the first innings.

 

Brief scores:

 

Sri Lanka 587 (Kumar Sangakkara 319, Mahela Jayawardene 72, Ajantha Mendis 47; Shakib Al Hasan 5 for 148) and 305 for 4 decl. (Kumar Sangakkara 105*, Dinesh Chandimal 100*, Angelo Mathews 43*; Mahmudullah 2 for 46) lead Bangladesh 426 (Shamsur Rahman 106, Imrul Kayes 115; Ajantha Mendis 6 for 99)  and 12 for no loss (Tamim Iqbal 7*, Shamsur Rahman 4*) by 455 runs.
