Sri Lanka secures Bangladesh after 50 Dickwella – SABC News

Guardian Niroshan Dickwella and Dinesh Chandimal infuriated Bangladesh and helped Sri Lanka draw a sketch and an opening test on Chattogram on Thursday.

Supporting the 68-run first innings, Sri Lanka started the day at 39-2 and looked to be 161-6 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.

Dickwella and Chandimal formed a 99-point alliance for the seventh undefeated wicket to undermine Bangladesh’s hopes of victory.

Dickwella made 61 hits while Chandimal did not win and 39 while Sri Lanka reached 260-6 when the draw was confirmed.

Skipper Dimuth Karunratne made 52, while Kusal Mendis (48) and Dhananjaya de Silva (33) also joined the bat for the tour.

“If you had taken the first innings, we would have done well,” Karunratne said at the show.

“As a side, we would have put a big mark. Unfortunately we could not do that.”

Sri Lankan player Angelo Mathews is known as a one-man athlete for 199 with his first innings.

Left-wing Taijul Islam claimed 4-82 but Bangladesh rejected the offer pace bowler Shoriful Islam who was expelled in the process from an injury sustained while hitting.

“We really lost Shoriful, but we managed to cover it up,” said Bangladeshi President Mominul Haque.

“Taijul knows his job… he is very beautiful. We will continue to get better, we will continue to get better. “

Mushfiqur Rahim became the first bat from Bangladesh to give 5000 tests during his 105 hit.

The second and final test will begin in Mirpur on Monday.
