Bangladesh's Uphill Task

With a monumental target of 511 runs to chase down, Bangladesh faced an uphill battle to avoid defeat. Despite their efforts, they ended the day still 243 runs shy of victory, with only three wickets remaining.

Mehidy Hasan showed resilience with an unbeaten 44, while Taijul Islam contributed 10 not out, but their resistance seemed insufficient against Sri Lanka's relentless bowling onslaught.


Mominul Haque's Gritty Fifty

Bangladesh's Mominul Haque provided some resistance with a gritty fifty, but his dismissal for 50 dealt a significant blow to Bangladesh's hopes of staging a comeback.


Sri Lanka's Commanding Position

Earlier in the day, Sri Lanka extended their second innings, with Angelo Mathews playing a crucial knock of 56 before declaring at 157-7. Mathews' innings, along with Jayasuriya's unbeaten 28, bolstered Sri Lanka's lead and put them in a commanding position.

Sri Lanka's dominant performance throughout the match, including their first-innings total of 531, has underscored their supremacy in the contest.


Final Day Showdown

As the match heads into its final day, Sri Lanka stands on the brink of victory, while Bangladesh faces a daunting task to salvage a draw. With the outcome hanging in the balance, cricket fans can expect an enthralling conclusion to the second Test between these two cricketing nations.
