Bangladesh v. Sri Lanka

Bangladesh v Sri Lanka Test Series 2014

Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chittagong: Tuesday 4 February 2014 09:30 (day 5 of 5)

Toss: Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat.

Result: Match Drawn

Bangladesh 2nd innings

End of Over 85 (2 runs)
Bowler: Nuwan Pradeep
Bangladesh: 271-3 (rr 3.19)

84.4
One Run
Fernando to Haque. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal.

There we have it, Mominul tucks that into the leg side to pick up his third Test match century off 167 balls. Mathews thinks enough is enough and decides it's time to shake hands and Bangladesh have salvaged the draw.

It was always going to be difficult to force a result on such a flat pitch. Other than a bit of uneven bounce there was never really much in the pitch for the bowler, as can be seen from the high scoring nature of the match. Kumar Sangakkara oozed class making his maiden triple century in the first innings, followed by a century in the second innings to take the man of the match award.

Shamsur Rahman, Imrul Kayes and Dinesh Chandimal all notched up centuries and Ajantha Mendis picked up 6-99 in other notable performances.

Sri Lanka take the series 1-0.
