SriLanka vs Bangladesh, 1st Test, Day 3

Sri Lanka managed to take an 182-run lead in the first innings by bowling out Bangladesh for 312. Mushfiqur Rahim and Mehedi Hasan Miraz looked comfortable in the middle and helped Bangladesh avoid the follow-on but once the Bangladesh captain fell for 85, Bangladesh could not resist more. Bangladesh was 312-9 when bad light stopped play and Tea were taken early. After the break, Sri Lanka needed only two balls to end the innings. The visitors were at one stage slumped to 192/6 but the 106-run stand between Mehedi and Mushfiqur ensured they avoided the follow-on. No play was possible in the final session as rains hit Galle. Play will start 15 minutes early on day four.
