Bad luck for Subhashis Roy and Bangladesh cricket team also. Shuvashis could get two wickets in 2 balls, but one no-ball turned the match. On that, no ball Shuvashis Roy got the most valuable wicket of Kushal Mendis, but the third umpire called that ball as an illegal delivery. That delivery helped Kushal Mendis to get the century. His incredible batting performance is going to change the result of the match. In the very first day of the first test match, Bangladesh started very well.
Bangladeshi bowlers made Sri Lankan bowlers disappointed several times. Srilanka lost their three wickets very early, and that was a great plus point for Bangladesh to keep them on pressure. But that didn’t last for a long time. Kushal Mendis changed that momentum. He got a chance and used that correctly.
In the first session Bangladeshi bowlers took three wickets too early, but by the end of the day Srilanka survived and scored very well by depending on Kushal’s bat. His extraordinary performance helped his team to end the 2nd day with a high position. Now it will be so hard for Bangladeshi bowlers to take all wickets of Sri Lanka and stop them from making a huge total. All bowlers of Bangladesh tried to break the wicket of Kushal Mendis, but they failed every time.
Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman remain unsuccessful in showing their best performance. Though Mustafiz got one wicket, he deserved a lot. Economy rate of Mustafizur Rahman is the best yet. Taskin Ahmed and Mehedi Hasan Miraz tried a bit, but Kushal Mendis is staying under the spotlight because of this extraordinary performance. By the end of the 2nd day, Sri Lanka is staying ahead because of their enormous 1st innings total.
