Sri Lanka beats Bangladesh by 215 runs

With the first Test at Chittagong drawn on Sunday, Sri Lanka looks set to record a 16th win in 20 tests against Bangladesh, as early as Saturday.

Sri Lanka was 87 for three to extend its lead to 199 runs against Bangladesh at tea on the second day of the second cricket test on Friday.

Dananjaya was the wrecker-in-chief with eight-wicket haul in the match and he was ably supported by experienced Rangana Herath (4/49). No other Sri Lankan took more than seven wickets on Test debut.

Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam bowled Lakmal for 21 to end the partnership before he trapped Herath leg-before off the next ball to wrap up the Sri Lanka innings. Roshen Silva (70 n o, 145b, 10×4), who had struck 56 in the first innings, led the scoresheet in the second essay, adding 48 runs with fellow overnight batsman Suranga Lakmal (21) for the ninth wicket to extend their lead on a hard pitch at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

Ballard wasn't the only one angered by McDaniels, whose agent, Bob LaMonte , chose to quit in the fallout. The Patriots and Colts haven't had a rivalry since Josh McDaniels was the head coach of the Broncos.

Imrul Kayes (17) and Mominul Haque (33) did a bit for the second wicket, adding 46, but Herath ended Kayes' resistance inducing an edge to stumper Niroshan Dickwella.

Sri Lanka began their victory push as Dilruwan Perera removed opener Tamim Iqbal for two in just the second over of the innings.

Haque looked good while he lasted, at least in terms of his attitude, but Mushfiqur Rahim (25) followed the Kayes template in trying to go for his shots, attempting two reverse sweeps even before he had opened his account.

The visitors were 8-200 at stumps, after taking a 112-run lead on the first innings.
