The Dhananjaya-Mendis pair took Sri Lanka's lead by 300

by endroar

Khaled did not let Biswa Fernando, who came down as 'Nightwatchman' at the end of the previous day, last long today. In the third over of the day, Biswa was caught at third slip by touching the ball outside the off-stump of Khaled. Mehdi Hasan Miraj got down and took a great catch. Biswa returned with 4 runs off 24 balls.

Bangladesh's success in the first session is this one wicket. The pacers did not look very effective as the ball was old. The spin was not catching. Lankan captain Dhananjaya de Silva once again shined under the cloudy sky in Sylhet.

He was accompanied by Kamindu Mendis who scored a century in the first innings. Dhananjaya continued towards the century with an 82-ball fifty, Mendis's fifty came quicker (69 balls). Sri Lanka is heading for another big run courtesy of the duo's unbroken 107-run partnership.
