tea Sri Lanka 210 for 4 (de Silva 30 *, Matthews 25 *, Shakib 2-38, Ebadot 2-54) Trail Bangladesh 365 (Mushfiqur 175 *, Litton 141, Rajitha 5-64, Asitha 4-93) 155 runs
Heavy rain, which ended five balls early in the first session, washed away the second play session on the third day of the second test in Milpool. The downpour was interrupted, but its strength and lack of sun to dry the outfield made it impossible to play shortly before noon. However, it seems that it is expected that play will be seen in the evening because the shower has passed.
However, the two ticket gates mean that the team remains evenly distributed in the test. Sri Lanka has a lot of blows to come, with two calm men in the fold. However, the surface is now beginning to show signs of wear. Shakib’s delivery to dismiss Carna Ratne was evidence of a dangerous turn, often seen on the back end of most Milpool tests. The quick bounce also fluctuated, resulting in some inner edges passing through the stump.
Both deliveries to Bangladesh ticket gates were spectacular. Evadot angled the ball towards the radiator, then moved the ball away from the deck, hit the outer edge, and hit the stump. It was a delivery that might have had a much better batter in trouble.
Shakib’s deliciously thrown ball to Karunaratne was somewhat opposed to the execution of play as Kaurnaratne began to look comfortable at the creases. However, Shakib, who hit the darts several times before, seduced the batter to push a big drive forward, dip the ball, spin between the bat and the pad, and put it in the central stump. Karunaratne added only 10 to his overnight score of 70.
Matthews was very pleased to challenge and defend the two boundaries with his 76-ball stay. He paid particular attention to Eva Dot and Shakib, who bowled the most probing lines in this session.
de Silva was more ambitious. He whipped the second ball (off Karido Ahmed) with a four-through square leg and respected Eva Dot early on, but he continued to actively look for a run. But just before lunch, he hit Eva Dot with a three-force over. Two of those boundaries were the result of good timing-through square legs and covers. The other was from a thick outer edge that worked well with a short third man.
