SL vs BAN Bangladesh Tour of Sri Lanka 2nd Test Match Preview:
The first Test match of the series ended in a draw and both the teams would be eyeing a series win by gaining a victory in this game.
Bangladesh won the toss at Pallekele and decided to bat first on what looked a batting-friendly track. The batters of Bangladesh went on to pile 541 runs on the board in the first innings before they declared. Young batting sensation Nazmul Hossain Shanto was the leading run-scorer from their side as he scored 163 runs followed by 127 runs from the skipper Mominul Haque.
Tamim Iqbal stacked 90 runs while Mushfiqur Rahim scored an unbeaten 68 to his name. Vishwa Fernando was the pick of the bowlers as he hunted 4 scalps while Suranga Lakmal, Lahiru Kumara, and Dhananjaya de Silva picked a wicket each.
In response to 541 from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka heaped 648 runs in their first innings for the loss of 8 wickets. Skipper Dimuth Karunaratne scored a double-century (244) while Dhananjaya de Silva smashed 166 runs. Taskin Ahmed grabbed 3 wickets with the ball while Taijul Islam picked 2, and Ebadot Hossain and Mehidy Hasan hunted a wicket each. Bangladesh could add just 100 runs for the loss of 2 wickets in their second innings before the game was declared drawn.
The surface at Pallekele had very little for the bowlers on offer and that made the first Test an uninteresting one. The second Test will be played at the same venue and it will be interesting to see how the pitch behaves this time.
