Another impressive opening stand helped Sri Lanka extend the lead past 250 after an excellent bowling performance towards the end of play on Day 3 of the 1st Test against Bangladesh at the Galle International Stadium. At lunch, the hosts are well in control with 87 runs on board for the loss of just 1 wicket.
Kusal Mendis’ impressive knock stabilized the Sri Lankan players, allowing them to execute their plans without a hassle.
The spinners, especially Dilruwan Perera bowled with great intent, picking up important wickets at regular intervals.
However, the visitors did their very best to avoid follow on, posting 312 on board.
As it stands, the Sri Lankans are on course for another home win but the weather can play around towards the latter part of the last two days.
