Resuming on 65/1 with opener Navod Paranavithana (35*) and skipper Nipun Dananjaya (5*) unbeaten at the crease the first wicket of the day fell adding just 10 runs. Within a few overs, early on in the day, both the overnight batsmen were dismissed for 40 and 11 respectively.

Sri Lanka U19s start well after Bangladesh compile 309

Then the best partnership of the Sri Lankan inning took place. The right-hand left-hand combination of Mohammad Shamaz and Sonal Dinusha, added 90 valuable runs for the 4th wicket.

After Shamaz’s dismissal for 31 when the team total was 168, of the Sri Lankan batting line-up didn’t really support Sonal as he battled alone to take Sri Lanka to a respectable total.

Sonal Dinusha facing 202 balls scored a magnificent century as he fell as Sri Lanka’s 8th wicket with the score on 270. The left-hander played a wonderful anchoring role to hold the whole Sri Lankan inning together. Ashien Daniel batting at 9 also chipped in with 21 runs. Sri Lanka was bowled out for 288 runs in 113 overs.

Bangladesh takes honours on opening day
