The Lankans were 314 for five at stumps on Day One.
Sangakkara’s masterful hundred saw Sri Lanka gain the upper-hand on the opening day. Mahela Jayawardene may have missed a ton of his own but he did play the supporting role to perfection.
The spin-heavy Bangladesh attack took some sheen off Sri Lanka’s dominance by snaring late wickets but they have a stiff task ahead with Sangakkara in the mood for a big one. Kithuruwan Vithanage, fresh from a ton in Dhaka oozes talent as well.
Sri Lanka 314 for 5 (Dimuth Karunaratne 31, Kumar Sangakkara 160*, Mahela Jayawardene 72; Shakib al Hasan 2 for 70) vs Bangladesh.
