What an important win by Sri Lanka in Dhaka. The Islanders get 12 World Test Championship points and also go above Pakistan in 2023 WTC table. If Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Mathews were the stars for Sri Lanka on Day 4, Asitha Fernando’s 6/51 did the magic on the final day. Starting the day at 34/4, Bangladesh lost Mushfiqur Rahim early, Shakib Al Hasan and Litton Das forged a 100-plus stand to revive the innings with both scoring fifties. But once the partnership was broken, it was a matter of time for Sri Lanka to wrap up Bangladesh’s innings and get the winning runs in just three overs. Asitha also finished the match with a 10-wicket haul. The first Test ended in a draw. Get here Day 5 highlights of BAN vs SL.
