Gritty Navod Paranavithana shines on opening day

674

A tame opening day of the 2nd U19 Test saw Sri Lanka U19s reach 219/9 in 90 overs against the visiting Bangladeshis at the FTZ grounds in Katunayake.

The hosts who won the toss and batted first were troubled right throughout their innings by Shain Alam who went on to capture a miserly 5/37 as the Sri Lanka U19s run rate barely got close to three runs per over throughout the day.

The Sri Lanka U19s lost their skipper, Nipun Dhananjaya, for a duck before Kamil Mishara and Navod Paranavithana looked in full flow while resurrecting the innings from the early loss.

Sri Lanka U19s fall short by 13 runs in thriller

Sri Lanka U19 were bowled out for 123 runs in their chase of 137 against the touring Bangladesh U19s today at the NCC…

The duo added 115 valuable runs for the second wicket before Mishara(52) fell just after reaching his half century.

Paranavithana continued to fight against some quality bowling while Sri Lanka continued to lose wickets at regular intervals.

Towhid Hridoy also joined in the party for Bangladesh U19s as the hosts continued to stumble, including the dismissal of Navod Paranavithana for 79 off 153 balls.

The hosts who were 122/1 at one stage lost 8/73 to be reduced to 195/9 before their last pair batted them to safety with an unbroken stand of 24*.

Tomorrow is day two of the four day Test and Bangladesh U19s lead the series 1-0 after a tense win last week.
