Sri Lankan spinners Ajantha Mendis and Dilruwan Perera rocked Bangladesh on Day three after Shamsur Rehman and Imrul Kayes held fort earlier in the day.

Resuming at 289 for four in the final session of the day’s play, Mushfiqur Rahim perished rather tamely off the bowling of Perera for 20. In came Nasir Hossain and like the top order batsmen, wasted no time in getting off the blocks and looked in very good nick.

Shakib Al Hasan looked solid and struck a flurry of boundaries to reach his half-century but holed out to Dimuth Karunaratne soon after; Perera was yet again the wicket-taker.

With the support of Mahmudullah, Hossain briskly went about with his business and got Bangladesh safely past the follow-on mark.

Almost immediately, Hossain was adjudged caught behind by umpire Paul Reiffel rather controversially off Mendis. He made 42 and Sohag Gazi was trapped plumb in front to put Mendis on a hat-trick. Mahmadullah scrapped around to see off the day without the loss of further wickets with Al-Amin Hossain.

Brief scores:

Sri Lanka 587 (Kumar Sangakkara 319, Mahela Jayawardene 72, Ajantha Mendis 47; Shakib Al Hasan 5 for 148, Nasir Hossain 2 for 16) lead Bangladesh 409 for 8 (Shamsur Rahman 106, Imrul Kayes 115, Shakib Al Hasan 50; Ajantha Mendis 4 for 84, Dilruwan Perera 3 for 119) by 178 runs.
