Bangladesh eye to level the series in historic Test

0

Second and the last Test between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will start from tomorrow at the P. Sara Oval Stadium, Colombo. It will be a historic match for Bangladesh as they are gearing up for their 100th Test. After a disappointing loss in the st Test, Bangladesh will look forward to level the series.

Bangladesh have played 3 Tests here and lost all of them. In 2001, Mohammad Ashraful registered as a youngest ever batsman to score a hundred in Test cricket at this ground. Still Bangladesh lost the match by innings and 196 runs. After 4 years, Bangladesh played their 2nd Test here and lost by innings and 69 runs. Despite some fight back from Mohammad Ashraful and Mushfiqur Rahim, Bangladesh lost their last Test here by innings and 90 runs.

Bangladesh made only one change ahead of the 2nd Test and added Imrul Kayes to the squad. Match will start at 9:30 am local time.
