Kumar Sangakkara added yet another feather to his cap after reaching a scintillating double-hundred against Bangladesh in the first session of Day two of the second Test in Chittagong.

The Sri Lankan great continued from where he finished on Day one unlike his teammates, many of whom got off to decent starts but failed to capitalise against the weak Bangladesh bowling although it has been a major improvement from the 1st Test in Mirpur.

Kithuruwan Vithanage, who has made a great start to Test cricket oozed the same confidence that was seen in the first Test en route his century but Nasir Hossain trapped him in front for 35.

Sri Lanka’s pursuit of quick runs saw Dilruwan Perera going back to the pavilion soon after and the inspiring Shakib al Hasan this time removing yet another Sri Lankan batsman for leg before, it was the fourth leg before out of seven dismissals.

Ajantha Mendis gave the former Sri Lankan captain able support in the last leg of play before lunch and baring fatigue, Sangakkara’s insatiable appetite for runs looks set to continue to stumble on more milestones in the next session.

Brief scores :

Sri Lanka 440 for 7 ( Kumar Sangakkara 223*, Mahela Jayawardene 72, Kithuruwan Vithanage 35; Shakib al Hasan 3 for 90)
