Bangladesh have indeed had a good first day with the score at stumps being 374 for 4. Monimul Haque is playing a major hand in Bangladesh’s big score as he is unbeaten on 175 at stumps. Haque and Mushfiqur Rahim added 236 to the third wicket partnership. Rahim missed out on a well deserved 100 by eight runs. Suranga Lakmal, Sri Lanka’s strike bowler picked up 2 for 43 in his 17 overs which included a golden duck.

The Test series will be shown on Star Select HD 2 and Star Select 2. The live streaming of the match will be available on hotstar.com. In Bangladesh, the streaming will be available on gazitv.com, along with the live telecast on Gazi TV.

Haque will look to convert his knock to something big tomorrow, whereas Sri Lanka will try hard to not let the first innings score get carried away.
