Lunch, Day One

Sri Lanka 61/2 (Mendis 19*, Chandimal 1*, Miraz 1/6  Subashis 1/15)

Rangana Herath won the toss and decided to bat first. Subasish Roy struck on his first over and gave Bangladesh a good start at the early morning. Tharanga was clean bowled by Subasish before scoring 4. Subasish could pick up another wicket on the very next ball which was denied by the no-ball.

Other opener Karunaratne and the new batsman Mendis played carefully and repaired the early damage. Three pacer Taskin, Mustafiz and Subasish all bowled well and tested the both batsmen.

Skipper Mushfiqur Rahim brought spinner Mehedi Hasan Miraz for the first time in the 18th over. Miraz removed Karunaratne in his third over who scored 30. Karunaratne was looking for cut the ball from outside off stump but it got a big inside edge and hit the off stump.

Sri Lanka finished the first season at 61/2 after 24 overs as the umpires called for early lunch.
