Match Ended   
397&260/6d (90.1)
Bangladesh drew with Sri Lanka
Right then. That’s it from the coverage of this game. Both teams share the spoils in their first outing, but that’s not all from the series. The two will meet again for the second Test match on 23rd May 2022 at 0930 IST (0400 GMT). But as you all know you can join us in advance for the build-up. Till then take care and goodbye!
Angelo Mathews win the Man of the Match award for his incredible knock of 199. He says it was disappointing to not get to a double ton. States it was a good wicket to bat on but Bangladesh bowlers bowled well and they had to work really hard for their runs. Adds without partners one can't get to that score and he thanks for the support.
Mominul Haque, the captain of Bangladesh is in for a chat. He says he always smiles as he loves smiling. Adds they did well with the bat here, it was a combined effort by the team. Adds Shakib Al Hasan and Taijul Islam bowled really well, Nayeem Hasan was the star in the first innings and they did miss Shoriful. Adds Taijul Islam knows his role and he knows the conditions too. Ends by saying you need to improve in every game and he is looking forward for the next game.
Dimuth Karunaratne, the skipper of Sri Lanka says they could have scored more in the first innings and they should have put Bangladesh under more pressure. Mentions the pacers did a very good job and the spinners did well in patches and hence, they could not restrict them to a low score but the spinners will learn. Adds they always play to win, they needed to play positively but the shot selection was not the best and they need to learn from that. Credits the way Dickwella and Chandimal played and says they know what to do in such situation.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
The approach though was extremely slow by the batters from both the sides and that meant, there needed to be a collapse if there was to be a result. Bangladesh did bowl really well in the first two sessions of Day 5 but eventually it ended in a draw.
In reply, Bangladesh managed to get a lead of over 50. Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim were the heroes with the bat for the hosts as both scored tons. Those efforts took Bangladesh into a position from where they could not lose the game.

Mahmudul Hasan Joy To Niroshan Dickwella
On middle, defended.
To be honest, the game just moved about a very slow speed. The 5th day was probably the most exciting one but 4 before were quite dull. After electing to bat, Sri Lanka put on a good competitive total courtesy Mathews’ 199. They looked set to score a lot more but the Bangladesh spinners bowled brilliantly to keep them under the 400-run mark.
So, the game finally ends in a draw! It was quite difficult to force a result on a wicket which remained good for the batters throughout. Bangladesh did keep hopes alive by picking wickets at regular intervals earlier in the day but the pair of Dimuth Karunaratne and Niroshan Dickwella showed great grit and determination to ensure there is no surprise.
The skippers are shaking hands! That means this is the end of the game. One might be wondering, how have they shook hands with 17 overs to go. Well, with Sri Lanka declaring, two overs have been deducted which means we have just the 15 overs left in the day and hence, both the skippers can decide to call it off and that is what they do.

The final session is set to begin. Bangladesh players make their way out on the field. Followed by Niroshan Dickwella and Dinesh Chandimal who walk to bat for Sri Lanka. Khaled Ahmed to start with the ball.
… Day 5, Session 3 …
Yet another session filled with excitement comes to an end. In this session 77 runs were scored with the fall of 2 wickets. Bangladesh bowlers picked things up from where they left off after the Lunch break. Taijul Islam got the prized wicket of Dimuth Karunaratne. Once he fell Bangladesh had the game by the scruff of the neck, but Niroshan Dickwella and Dinesh Chandimal displayed grit and determination in their potentially match-saving stand of 44 runs. They are still in the middle with their swords and Sri Lanka would hope they can stick around for a little longer. Sri Lanka have performed really well whenever they have been on the back foot in this Test match. The way their players have turned up, they surely have some fight left in them. Can the Sri Lankan batters continue to frustrate the opposition bowlers to take some points from this match? To find out, join us at 1430 IST (0900 GMT).

The second session is set to begin. The Bangladesh players stride out to the middle. Followed by Dimuth Karunaratne and Dhananjaya de Silva who walk out to bat for Sri Lanka. It will be Shakib Al Hasan to start with the ball. Here we go...
... Day 5, Session 2 ...
It could have been Sri Lanka's session but Taijul Islam had other ideas. Islam started the day by leaking a lot of runs. Although, he came back stronger to struck right after the drinks break. Soon, he removed Mathews as well. There is surely some assistance for the spinners with the ball gripping. Bangladesh would be eyeing to take the remaining wickets as quickly as possible to keep the possibility of a victory alive. An enticing session awaits. Which team will have an advantage after the second session? To find out, join us at 1210 IST (0640 GMT).
Sri Lanka could not keep their feet on the ground! Kusal Mendis and Dimuth Karunaratne started the morning session briskly. They stitched a solid stand of 67 off 88 deliveries. Although Mendis slipped out on 48, which did unbalance the ship for the visiting side. Angelo Mathews also followed suit by going back on a duck. Sri Lanka were put on the back foot, but Dimuth and de Silva managed to see off the morning session without any more wickets. Sri Lanka lead by 60 runs, they have just 6 wickets in hand.
What an entertaining session this has been. Wouldn’t have asked for a better start to the final day of the first Test match. Sri Lanka started the session aggressively, but Bangla Tigers roared back louder to get take the advantage off the Islanders.

Taijul Islam To Kusal Mendis OUT!
OUT! BOWLED! This is excellent bowling from Taijul Islam. Slower on middle, gets just enough turn on off, Kusal Mendis tries to defend it but misses. The ball hits the off stump, as it turns away enough off the deck to get the first wicket of the day. Kusal Mendis looks back in surprise. Just the man Bangladesh wanted and they now have a chance to pressurize Sri Lanka.

Drinks! It has been all about Sri Lanka in the first hour of the morning session. Kusal Mendis and Dimuth Karunaratne have scored at a brisk rate and their side would hope these two can remain unscathed till Lunch. Bangladesh though have not been able to ask the right questions at the beginning, but Shakib Al Hasan and Taijul Islam have managed to squeeze the run flow here as they bowl in tandem. Can Bangladesh find a wicket in the remaining part of the first session?

The morning session on Day 5 is set to begin. The Bangladesh players make their way out to the middle. Followed by Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis, the new batsman who walk out to bat for Sri Lanka. Taijul Islam to continue with the ball and complete his over. Here we go...
Litton Das is in for a chat. On being asked about the slump back in 2020 he says that he changed his mindset, remained patient and he is enjoying the success in the recent years. Mentions that his side accepts him as a valuable asset to the squad.
Even though the most likely result is still a draw, Bangladesh would be hoping for a great start to the morning session. A couple more wickets and the pressure would be on the visiting side. Sri Lanka though have some great batters under their ranks who can bat throughout the day to make sure they take some point out of this match. An enticing session of Test cricket awaits. Stay tuned...
Hello and a warm welcome to Day 5 of the first Test match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Bangladesh clearly held the upper hand after the morning session on the previous day. Although Sri Lanka fought back harder to all-out Bangladesh with just a lead of 68 runs. Nevertheless, Sri Lanka would be a tad disappointed after losing two early wickets.
... Day 5, Session 1 ...
Earlier in the day, Bangladesh batted, batted and batted. They managed a lead of over 50 courtesy of good innings from Litton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim. Credit to Sri Lanka though, they fought back exceedingly well. But they will be disappointed with how things ended on Day 4. The lead is not a big one but could be a decisive one. Day 5 promises to be an exciting one and one would not want to miss. Also, let us hope we get all the allotted overs on Day 5 as we have already missed out on quite a few. The action on Day 5 begins at 9:30 am IST (4:00 am GMT). But our build-up will begin in advance. Do join us then. For now, goodbye and take care!
Sri Lanka on the other hand, will probably need a good session or a session and a half and they’ll be safe. However, they’ll need the likes of Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, and Dimuth Karunaratne to show great character. Despite the experience they have, it is going to be a real test and it will be interesting to see if they do get through it.
Bangladesh still leads by another 29 runs and they’ll hope they can take a couple more before that deficit is wiped off. The wicket has started to play tricks. It is turning and there is variable bounce so it is not going to be easy for the batters on Day 5. The spinners have to play a big role and will have to be at their best game if the hosts are to force a result.
Big smiles on the faces of the Bangladesh players as they make their way off and rightly so. It seemed like Sri Lanka would head into Day 5 with all 10 wickets intact but two wickets at the end have just given hope to all that there maybe a chance of a result.

OUT! CLEANED HIM UP! Taijul Islam has his man! He did trouble him in his previous over but he gets him this time. That is a cracking delivery. Tosses it up, fuller one on off and turning it inside. Lasith Embuldeniya leans forward and tries to defend it but he misses it. The ball sneaks past his inside edge and goes on to hit the stumps. What a way to end the day. Sri Lanka are two down as Lasith Embuldeniya walks back in disappointment. That will be Stumps on Day 4!
