Watch SL v BD highlights today – second test day three from P Sara Oval, Colombo (Sri Lanka) Friday 17th March 2017. Sri Lanka scored 338 runs by facing 113.3 overs all out in their first innings. LD Chandimal scored 130 runs, he smashed ten 4s and a maximum in his beautiful innings. When his wicket dismissed then it was 105.6 86.3 kph, looks to swing this over midwicket, but holes out to the man at the edge of the ring. Didn’t get the elevation because he didn’t get underneath the flight and only managed to toe-end it. End of a super knock from Chandimal. Walks off to a standing ovation. Mehedi is pumped, but he’d later realize this should have come much earlier. 305/9.
Captain of the team HMRKB Herath scored 25 runs, When his wicket down then 91.1 91.7 kph, there’s the first of them. A couple of juggles and a fine take by Soumya at slip. Shakib bowls this full outside off, the ball drifts away from touch. Herath doesn’t account for that, looks to drive and get a thick edge that is pouched nicely. Relief for Bangladesh 250/8. RAS Lakmal scored 35 runs and he was the second most runs scorer from Sri Lankan 1st innings.
Mehedi Hasan Miraz took three wickets, Mustafizur Rahman, Subashis Roy and Shakib Al Hasan these three BD bowlers took two wickets each of them and Taijul Islam dismissed one SL batsmen.
