9 AM IST: Horror Start
Bangladesh made a horror start after winning the toss. They lost their top five batsmen (24 for 5) inside the first hour and were looking at the prospect of crashing below their lowest-ever Test score (53 all out against South Africa at Kingsmead, Durban in April 2022) till Mushfiqur Rahim and Litton Das started the rescue act.
9:05 AM IST: Old Is Gold
During their marathon innings, Litton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim also broke the record for the highest sixth-wicket partnership in Test cricket. Incidentally, Mushfiqur was involved in the previous record partnership (191) with Mohammad Ashraful, which also came against Sri Lanka in 2007.
Pacers Kasun Rajitha (3/43) and Asitha Fernando (2/80) used the new ball to good effect but Lanka's spinners were largely ineffective on Monday. The visitors are playing three specialist spinners and left-arm orthodox Praveen Jayawickrama had the longest spell of 29 overs but made little impression.
