Scorecard

Legspinner Seekkuge Prasanna's four-wicket burst on the second day led Sri Lanka Academy's fightback as they restricted their Bangladeshi counterparts to 441 in the first innings. Bangladesh collapsed after having begun the four-day game strongly, with Shamsur Rahman's 125 helping them to 340 for 5 on the first day.

Farhad Hossain and Suhrawadi Shuvo, the overnight batsmen, added 57 for the sixth wicket before Shuvo was trapped leg-before by Prasanna. Wicketkeeper Ashiqul Islam scored 12 before he too was out lbw to the legspinner. Prasanna had tailender Ziaur Rahman bowled, and made it six for the innings when he took a return catch off Farhad, who scored 54.

There was some resistance from No. 10 Mahbubul Alam, who made a brisk 28 and was unbeaten as last-man Rubel Hossain was run out. Alam opened the bowling for the visitors but Bangladesh only bowled four balls before play was called off.
