BD v SL highlights today – Second rocket test day two from Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur, Dhaka (Bangladesh) Friday 9th February 2018. On the first day, Sri Lanka scored 222 runs in their first innings with 65.3 overs all out. The opener of the team BKG Mendis smashed ten 4s and a maximum, he scored 68 runs off 98 deliveries, when his wicket dismissed then it was 31.2 what a kippah! It’s the length that traps Mendis. He has to come forward to it, but Razzak does not let him get anywhere near the pitch. That means the batsman has to predict how much it will turn. Mendis underestimates as he tries to defend. And the ball skips past the outside edge to crash into the off stump 109/5.
Sri Lanka won the toss and batted first.
