Tigers sniff a rare victory
Sri Lanka has stretched their lead to 139 runs thanks to century by Dimuth Karunaratne.
But Bangladesh, playing in a landmark game of their own, can rightfully consider themselves in control of the contest after picking up eight wickets on Saturday.
The day ended on a sour note for Bangladesh after umpire Aleem Dar first seemed to nod yes to an appeal, as if to suggest Suranga Lakmal had got a faint inside edge to short leg off the last ball bowled by Mosaddek Hossain.
Replays, however, didn't indicate an edge but it was yet another example of tough this Test has been for the umpires, reports Espncricinfo.
Shakib Al Hasan took three wickets including that of Karunaratne in the final session for 126.
Mustafizur Rahman also claimed three wickets for the visitors.
