SL v BD features today – First rocket test day five at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chittagong (Bangladesh) Sunday fourth February 2018. Bangladesh batted so well in their first innings with scoring 513 runs however Sri Lankan youths crushed every single Bangladeshi bowler in their first innings and scored 713 keeps running with nine down in 199.3 overs then their chief LD Chandimal pronounced their group first innings. Recently (Day 4) Bangladesh scored 81 keeps running with three wickets down in 26.5 overs and trail by 119 keeps running with 7 wickets remaining. BKG Mendis scored 196 keeps running off 327 conveyances, he crushed 22 4s and two 6s in his lovely innings, when his wicket expelled then it was 104.3 a shocking catch from Mushfiqur to end Kusal’s innings on 196! I think about whether tea drawing closer had anything to do with that stroke, it was full outside off, yet Kusal came running after, hoping to flick the ball over midwicket – most likely the wrong shot choice, thinking of it as was against the turn, yet he has done it so effectively that lack of concern may have sneaked in. Mushfiqur keeps his eyes on the ball directly through its direction, till when it’s in his grasp. Made noteworthy ground on his right side from mid-on, great plunging get 415/3.
DM de Silva scored 173 keeps running off 229 balls, he finished his innings with the assistance of 21 limits and a most extreme, when his wicket taken then it happen this way: 82.5 taken by the guardian and a 308-run stand closes! The new ball has worked. A short conveyance is calculated over the batsman, Dananjaya gets over, hoping to swivel into a maneuver into the leg side, however the ball takes the main edge. The attendant gets crosswise over and takes the weight get. End of a fantastic innings, struck at more than 75. 308/2. ARS Silva scored 109, LD Chandimal (c) 87, N Dickwella † 62, MDK Perera 32, HMRKB Herath 24 and RAS Lakmal 9. Taijul Islam took four Sri Lankan batsman’s wickets, Mehidy Hasan Miraz took three, Sunzamul Islam and Mustafizur Rahman these two took one wicket each of them.
The fall of three late Bangladesh wickets loaned trust the Chittagong Test may yet deliver an outcome, after Sri Lanka had secured a first-innings lead of 200, storing up 713 for 9. Roshen Silva finished a guaranteed hundred, Dinesh Chandimal a deliberate 87 and Niroshan Dickwella a fast 62, however it was Sri Lanka’s spinners who really revived the amusement. Discovering turn with the nearly new ball, Dilruwan Perera, Lakshan Sandakan and Rangana Herath struck once each in the last 12 overs of the day. With both Mushfiqur Rahim and Tamim Iqbal among those expelled, the Bangladesh center request is presently accused of conveying them to security on day five. They are as yet 119 keeps running behind. The late wickets came after the hosts had started their second innings with such certainty. Tamim Iqbal was not exactly as aggressive as he had been in the principal innings, however he was all things considered positive, stroking Herath through midwicket at a very early stage in his innings, previously lusciously flicking Suranga Lakmal through square leg in the fourth finished. Sri Lanka raised some great lbw yells, yet batting still showed up a generally uncomplicated exercise. Imrul Kayes was calmer than Tamim however scarcely appeared to battle.
It was in the over that Imrul was expelled that the vibe changed. Tamim was beaten twice by turning Dilruwan Perera conveyances before he at long last figured out how to get himself off strike off the fifth ball. Imrul at that point by one means or another figured out how to get the toe-end of his bat to an endeavored incline shot, and the ball circled out towards the square leg defender, who finished a simple take. The staying 11.5 overs were tense; just two limits were struck before stumps. Tamim was generally to fault for his expulsion – goading at a Sandakan ball that was not debilitating the stumps, just to send a thin edge to the wicketkeeper. Mushfiqur, in any case, can see himself as extremely unfortunate. He got forward to safeguard a full conveyance from Herath, just for the ball to hit his bat and ricochet off his shoe. Kusal Mendis took a decent low catch at senseless point. Sri Lanka’s walk to their tremendous score was, it must be stated, totally dreary survey, regardless of whether it might end up being in administration of a Test win. The morning session was another dotted with Sri Lanka breakthroughs – Roshen and Chandimal raising the third-century remain of the innings previously Roshen finished a capable lady Test ton. Later in the session, after Roshen had been gotten behind off a Mehidy Hasan conveyance, Sri Lanka furrowed on past 600. Bangladesh’s bowlers were at this point in different conditions of exhaustion, and their four cutting edge bowlers had all yielded more than 100 runs each.
Where there had been direness in the advance of Dhananjaya de Silva and Kusal Mendis on day three, Chandimal had generally been substance to crawl along, hitting three limits off the 185 conveyances he confronted. Had he scored 13 more runs, he would have had a fifth Test century against Bangladesh, however not long after lunch, he permitted a straight Taijul Islam conveyance to wriggle amongst bat and cushion. The evening was charged, if just gently, by Niroshan Dickwella’s hostility and Mehidy’s rocking the bowling alley. Dickwella’s ranges and turn around clears kept Sri Lanka’s score rolling – the most amazing of those shots the level invert clear against Taijul that seared to the limit before square. Mehidy flighted the ball pleasantly and read the batsmen’s goals well, regularly terminating it quick and level on the off chance that he detected his rival would make a progress down the pitch. For his continuing strength, Mehidy was remunerated with Dickwella’s wicket – the batsman top-edging a silly switch clear against the turn, to a ball that pitched well outside his leg stump. In the past session, Dickwella had survived a lbw yell against Mehidy that could have decently been given out, however the not-out choice would not have been upset on audit either. Dilruwan Perera contributed a to a great extent uneventful 32 to the score, however when three brisk wickets fell either side of tea, Chandimal chose Sri Lanka had batted sufficiently long. All up, they had kept Bangladesh in the field for 199.3 overs, which was just three balls less than the longest extend in the field a Bangladesh side had ever persevered. Taijul’s workload was enormous – he had knocked down some pins 67.3 overs in the innings.
