Bangladesh v Sri Lanka, Colombo Test: Day 5

Bangladesh have bowled Sri Lanka out for 319 in their second innings and will chase 191 for their first Test victory against the islanders, reports bdnews24.com.

Tail-enders Dilruwan Perera (50) and Suranga Lakmal (42) continued to frustrate the Tigers’ bowlers with an 80-run stand for the eighth wicket in the morning after they resumed on an overnight 268 for 8 at the P Sara Oval in Colombo on Thursday.

Perera was eventually run out after his fourth Test half-century. Lakmal soon followed him back when he holed out at long-off to give Shakib Al Hasan his fourth wicket.
