    To be honest, the game just moved about a very slow speed. The 5th day was probably the most exciting one but 4 before were quite dull. After electing to bat, Sri Lanka put on a good competitive total courtesy Mathews’ 199. They looked set to score a lot more but the Bangladesh spinners bowled brilliantly to keep them under the 400-run mark.

    So, the game finally ends in a draw! It was quite difficult to force a result on a wicket which remained good for the batters throughout. Bangladesh did keep hopes alive by picking wickets at regular intervals earlier in the day but the pair of Dimuth Karunaratne and Niroshan Dickwella showed great grit and determination to ensure there is no surprise.

    The skippers are shaking hands! That means this is the end of the game. One might be wondering, how have they shook hands with 17 overs to go. Well, with Sri Lanka declaring, two overs have been deducted which means we have just the 15 overs left in the day and hence, both the skippers can decide to call it off and that is what they do.
