Sri Lanka fought back in the last leg of the first session after Bangladesh seized control earlier in the day thanks to Shamsur Rehman and Imrul Kayes‘s brilliant hundreds.

Rehman and Kayes totally dominated the first session’s play, putting the tame Sri Lankan attack to the sword and both batsmen completed their hundreds shortly into the second session of the Day’s play.

The Bangladeshi duo looked set to break Bangladesh’s all-time record partnership but Rehman threw his wicket away; bowled trying to heave Ajantha Mendis out of the park to draw curtains on the 232 run stand. Rahman made 106, his maiden hundred coming in only his second Test match.

Mominul Haque didn’t last long and was out leg before to the bowling of Dilruwan Perera for 13 and the other centurion Kayes also threw his wicket attempting to clear the ropes of Mendis. Kayes, again was bowled and the Bangladesh batsman needed the help of his fellow teammates to head back to the pavilion after hurting his hamstring.

Shakib Al Hasan and captain Mushfiqur Rahim steered Bangladesh to safety at tea with the score on 289 for four. The cheap dismissals after all the hard work earlier in the day might just prove costly for Bangladesh.

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 289 for 4 (Shamsur Rahman 106, Imrul Kayes 115; Ajantha Mendis 2 for 62 ) by 298 runs.
