Galle: Mar 10, 2013

Bangladesh were 224 for 4 in their first innings at lunch in reply to Sri Lanka‘s 570 for 4 declared on the third day of the opening Test in Galle on Sunday.

Mohammad Ashraful was unbeaten on 107 at the break with skipper Mushfiqur Rahim (25*).

Earlier, Ashraful struck an unbeaten half-century to guide Bangladesh to 135 for two at the end of second day’s play against Sri Lanka at Galle on Saturday.

Ashraful forged a stable 70-run partnership with Mominul Haque for the third wicket to rescue the visitors after they were reduced to 65 for two.

Bangladesh were in trouble after they lost their opener Jahurul Islam soon after Sri Lanka declared their innings at 570 for four.

Islam gloved a beautiful incoming delivery by Shaminda Eranga to the wicketkeeper with the score on 23.

Lahiru Thirimanne and Dinesh Chandimal struck their maiden Test tons to propel the hosts to 570 for four. Both were unbeaten when skipper Angelo Mathews declared the innings with a few overs left to play before Tea on Day Two.
