The schedule of Bangladesh ‘A’ team’s 20-day long tour in Sri Lanka has been forced to be revised due TO………….

The series finally saw a beginning today after a 45-minute delay in the morning as the visiting skipper, Test Cap Mominul Haque won the toss and elected to bat first. Sri Lanka’s playing XI featured two pacies in Vishwa Fernando and Asitha Fernando while Malinda Pushpakumara led the spin attack which composed all-rounders Ramesh Mendis, Kamindu Mendis and skipper Ashan Priyanjan.

Ramesh Mendis finished as the pick of the bowlers for Sri Lanka today as he picked up 2 wickets in quick succession to jolt the Bangladeshi batting order after a superb opening stand of 90 between Jahurul Islam and Shadman Islam was broken by Priyanjan. The innings was however brought back on track by Mohammad Mithun together with Jahurul.

The duo added 137 runs for the 4th wicket as they guided their team to a strong position. Jahurul scored 90 while Mithun top-scored with 92 before Ashen Bandara’s brilliance in the field got the better of him providing a crucial breakthrough for the Lankans.

The two pacies who didn’t have much success throughout the day, ended the day sharing two wickets between them to leave the visitors 6 wickets down when bad light forced the game to be stopped 15 minutes ahead of schedule causing the loss of 5 overs.
