Mushfiqur showing the way


Lunch, Day Three

Bangladesh 1st Innings: 213/6 (Soumya 71, Tamim 57, Mushfiqur 22*, Mehedi 11*, Lakmal 1/32)

Bangladesh stumble in the morning session after losing four wickets in quick successions in the third day of Galle Test.

Soumya Sarkar was the first man to be dismissed in the morning. He was trying to pull the short ball from Suranga Lakmal but it got a top edge and the fielder at fine leg didn’t miss the chance.

Next batsman Shakib Al Hasan started aggressively. But Lakshan Sandakan trapped him with a wrong on. Shakib scored a quickfire 23 from 19 balls. Soon Mahmudullah and Liton Das followed him which put Bangladesh in some sorts of trouble.

Mushfiqur Rahim and Mehedi Hasan passed the rest of the time without any  further trouble.

Bangladesh are on 213/6 after 71 overs at the lunch.
