Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka (730/6d)
Sri Lanka dominated the first day of the first Test against Bangladesh in Mirpur, bowling their visitors out for 232 and then striving to close the day on 60 without being dismissed. Bangladesh got off to a bad start, thanks to four wickets from Shaminda Eranga, followed by half-centuries from Mushfiqur Rahim (61) and Shakib Al Hasan (55). The only additional players to score twice were lead role opener Shamsur Rahman and Sohag Gazi, who ended up scoring 33 and 42 runs, respectively. Suranga Lakmal took 3 wickets, Rangana Herath two, and Angelo Mathews one, but openers Kaushal Silva (30 not out) and Dimuth Karunaratne (28 not out) managed to remain unbeaten at stumps. Sri Lanka won the toss and made good early major breakthrough after opting to bowl first.
Bangladesh vs New Zealand (715/6d)
BJ Wattling has broken Adam Parore’s New Zealand record of 201 Test layoffs. But that only scratches the surface of what a resounding win this has already been. Bangladesh scored 663 runs in the game but were vanquished by an innings and 51 runs. Kane Williamson’s double century was the highlight of New Zealand’s sole innings, but big hundreds from Jeet Raval and Tom Latham also opened the way for their big score of 715/6 declared. Bangladesh had a total of three legionaries. Tamim Iqbal bounced back gallantly in the initial innings, while Soumya Sarkar and Mahmudullah both reached double figures in the third.
Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka (648/8d)
Dimuth Karunaratne led Sri Lanka to 229-3 at wickets on the third day of the initial test, trailing Bangladesh’s massive 541-7 by 312 runs. When Sri Lanka finally started their rebuttal, Bangladesh fast bowlers posed little threat, but two bowlers — Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan — were praised for their tight bowling. Sri Lanka’s best spin bowler, Karunaratne, has effectively countered the threat, but his team requires at least two additional major coalitions. Karunaratne batted for over 5 hours for his 85-run stand on day three, as play was prolonged to make up for several hours dropped due to poor illumination. Angelo Mathews was penalised 25 yards for amateurish movements. The seasoned campaigner flubbed Taijul’s full delivery, which he should have managed to play on the front foot. The ball got away from the bat and landed on the stumps.
