Sri Lanka's record-breaking run flood

Dhananjaya and Mendis have also written their names in the record books with centuries in both innings. This is the third time that two batsmen scored centuries in two innings of the same Test. Greg Chappell and Ian Chappell achieved this feat for the first time against New Zealand in 1974. Misbah-ul-Haq and Azhar Ali scored centuries in two innings against Australia in 2014. Apart from this, Dhananjaya became the first Sri Lankan captain to score a century in two innings of the same Test.

Had the fielding been better, the story could have been different. Dhananjaya was caught by Liton Das in the second ball of the 72nd over of the innings by Mehdi Hasan Miraj. He was playing at 94 then. After that, Bangladesh once again missed the opportunity to get Dhananjaya out. This time in the 81st over of the innings, Nahid Rana caught Khaled Ahmed's ball at mid-on.

In the end, Mendis was caught at mid-wicket by Mirage. 108 runs from 179 balls came from his bat before getting out. It had 9 fours and 2 sixes. Kamindu is unbeaten with 100 runs off 171 balls. Accompanying him is Prabat Jayasuriya, who is playing for 13 runs.
