A single wicket has fallen thus far in the Sri Lankan innings though Dimuth Karunaratne has been in trouble against Taijul Islam. Ebadot was the wicket-taker after Oshada Fernando got to his fifty. Under an hour of play remains and Bangladesh will be happy if they can snap up a couple more wickets. Earlier, it was the visitors who came out on top as they removed the final wicket after 20 deliveries via a run out that left Mushfiqur stranded on 175*.

Brief scores: Sri Lanka 84/0 (Oshada Fernando 52*, Dimuth Karunaratne 31*) trail Bangladesh 365 (Mushfiqur Rahim 175*, Liton Das 141; Kasun Rajitha 5/64, Asitha Fernando 4/93) by 281 runs
