Dananjaya takes five as Sri Lanka clinch series


Akila Dananjaya and Rangana Herath shared nine wickets between them as Sri Lanka dismissed Bangladesh for 123 in the final innings to complete a 215-run victory in the second Test in Dhaka to take the series 1-0.

Chasing an improbable 339 runs for a win on a track that was conducive to spin, only Mominul Haque (33) and Mushfiqur Rahim (25) showed some resilience but with Herath (4-49) claiming the top order, the variations of Dananjaya (5-24) were too much to handle for the lower and middle order as the home side were bowled out for 123.

In the process, Dananjaya completed a five-wicket haul while Herath surpassed Wasim Akram’s tally of 414 to become the leading wicket-taker among the left-arm bowlers.

Roshen Silva was named the man of the match as well as the man of the series as Sri Lanka start their stint under new coach Chandika Hathurusingha on a positive note.
