SL beat B'desh in 2nd Test to win series

Bangladesh claimed three wickets in the second innings but Sri Lanka stretched their lead to 199 in the second Test in Dhaka on Friday.

And Dananjaya, playing his first Test, returned the best match figures by a Sri Lankan on debut with 8/44, his 5/24 in the second innings a masterful exhibition of control more than anything else.

Dananjaya was the wrecker-in-chief with eight-wicket haul in the match and he was ably supported by experienced Rangana Herath (4/49).

With the comfort of a huge target to defend, Dananjaya ran through the Bangladesh line-up, taking 5 for 24 on his Test debut.

Previously, Herath became the first left arm spinner to cross the 400 wicket mark, and the fifth spinner behind legends such as Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne and the Indian pairing of Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh.

Roshen Silva was unbeaten on 70 runs.

All-rounder Mahedi Hasan and U-19 vice-captain Afif Hossain are among the five uncapped players, named in the 15-man Bangladesh squad for the first T20I against Sri Lanka, beginning February 15 at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. Taijul Islam (4/76) bowled well for the hosts.

110 - Bangladesh's first innings total of 110/10 is their lowest in a Test innings at home in over 14 years. Paceman Suranga Lakmal also claimed three wickets while off-spinner Dilruwan Perera picked two to flatten the Bangladesh batting.

Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam bowled Lakmal for 21 to end the partnership before he trapped Herath leg-before off the next ball to wrap up the Sri Lanka innings.
