Lachlan: "I have no idea why Bangladesh did not play an extra pace bowler. On any pitch, you need at least three pace bowlers and they have too many spin bowlers. If they wanted an extra spinner they should have brought in Shuvo from the domestic competition. He is a better bowler than Haque and he can bat, and Bangladesh would have won the last test if they had a tail that could bat."

Shakib got some really sharp turn from the area outside off, he drew Mahela forward and by the naked eye appeared as if it deflected off something, could have been the outside edge, the ball was a little too quick for Rahim, another replay will be handy

That's lunch. A very difficult session for Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have done well to keep them in check. Mortaza did the initial damage before Shakib created the pressure. This pitch is much slower than the one in Mirpur and runs will be hard to come by. I think Mendis will be deadly once he comes on.

Importantly, Bangladesh have picked up Jayawardene and Sangakkara. Expect more overs from the spinners in the second session. Join us at 12.10 local time.
