Tigers trail Sri Lanka by 361 runs after Day-2
Team Tigers trail Sri Lanka by 361 runs with 8 wickets remaining in their first innings of the first Test against Sri Lanka at the Galle International Stadium in Sri Lanka today.
Soumya Sarkar was batting on 66 and Tigers skipper Mushfiqur Rahim on 1 when the players left the field at stumps on day-2. The last session of day-2 produced 102 runs in 36 overs while Tigers lost two important wickets.
Tamim Iqbal and Mominul Haque were the wickets to fall for Bangladesh. Tamim made 57 from 112 balls. Mominul was out for seven. Dilruwan Perera took a wicket for 32 runs in 13 overs.
Mominul Haque became the second wicket to fall for Bangladesh when he was trapped in front for 7 to leave the tourists at 127 for 2 after 40.3 overs.
Mominul ploy of playing on the back foot backfired. After he missed the good length ball on off from Dilruwan Perera and was struck in front, the umpire raised his finger without much hesitation. It was plumb!
