Bangladesh, set a target of 467 runs to record a series-levelling win, were 204 for three at tea on the fifth day of the second and final Test against Sri Lanka in Chittagong on Saturday.

 

Mominul Haque was unbeaten on 71 and Shakib Al Hasan was on 13, the pair having added 53 runs for the fourth wicket.

 

Sri Lanka have one more session to claim the remaining seven wickets and sweep the series after winning the first Test by an innings and 248 runs in Dhaka.

 

Earlier, Bangladesh lost two wickets in a tense morning session on the fifth day as Sri Lanka looked on course to win the second and final Test.

 

Tamim Iqbal and Shamsur Rahman put on 71 for the first wicket, before both openers fell in the space of 10 runs.

 

Tamim made 31 when he was bowled by leg-spinner Kithuruwan Vithanage, who was bowling for the first time in his short four-Test career.

 

Rahman, a century-maker in the first innings, looked in fine touch during his knock of 45 when he was bowled by off-spinner Dilruwan Perera.

 

Sri Lanka have two more sessions to claim the remaining eight wickets and sweep the series after winning the first Test by an innings and 248 runs in Dhaka last week.

 

Perera was Sri Lanka’s most impressive bowler, conceding just nine runs in 13 steady overs for one wicket.

 

Brief scores:

 

Sri Lanka 587 & 305 for 4 decl. (Kumar Sangakkara 105, Dinesh Chandimal 100*, Angelo Mathews 43*; Mahmudullah 2 for 46) lead Bangladesh 426 & 204 for 3 (Shamsur Rahman 45, Mominul Haque 71*; Dilruwan Perera 2 for 36) by 263 runs.
