Veteran Sri Lankan batsmen Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene put the Bangladesh attack to sword to end the second session of Day One of the second Test in Chittagong at 196 for two.

Sri Lanka lost their openers cheaply after electing to bat first on a wicket that was slow and a Bangladesh attack that was determined to save face after the humiliating innings defeat in the first Test in Mirpur.

Sangakkara and Jayawardene negotiated the first session patiently but went berserk post-lunch, amassing 125 runs between them.

Jayawardene played the sheet anchor role while Sangakkara went after the bowling in his typical finesse and ended the session four runs short of yet another century. Jaywardene meanwhile reached his half-century and the duo are looking good to post big scores.

Brief scores:

Sri Lanka 196 for 2 (Dimuth Karunaratne 31, Kumar Sangakkara 96*, Mahela Jayawardene 54*; Al-Amin Hossian 1 for 34) vs Bangladesh.
