Angelo Mathews superlative knock of 199 helped Sri Lanka take control on day two of the 1st Test against Bangladesh at Chattogram.  

Mathews posted his 2nd highest score in Tests as Sri Lanka posted 397 runs in 153 overs. He unfortunately missed out a double century dismissed by off spinner Nayeem Hasan one short of a second double century.

Off spinner Nayeem Hasan was the pick of the bowlers for the hosts as he grabbed 6 wickets for 105 runs.

In reply, Bangladesh opening pair Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudul Hasan Joy got them off to a solid start, putting on 76 runs in 19 overs at the end of second day’s play.

Earlier in the day, Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal built a 136-run partnership for the 5th wicket, setting the foundation for a solid score for the visitors.

Mathews and Vishwa Fernando also put on a crucial gritty 47-run partnership for the 9th wicket in post-lunch session for the visitors.
