Kusal Mendis scored 196 runs while Dhananjaya de Silva made 173 runs as Sri Lanka cut the deficit to just nine runs in reply to Bangladesh's first inning total of 513. "Three wickets are too many", he said. "There were some deliveries on good areas, which gave them the three wickets". "There is a lot to think, and a lot not to think about", Taijul said.

He made 109 off 230 balls before becoming the first batsman dismissed on the day.

Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam claimed the wicket of Dinesh Chandimal for 87 with a straight delivery in the first over after lunch to prevent the skipper from being the fourth Sri Lankan batsman to score a hundred in the innings.

Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka, 1st Test Day 4 Live cricket score: After a run feast on day 3 at Chittagong we are now back in action for a crucial day 4. "It is a batting wicket, but we didn't bowl to that level", Taijul said. As Sri Lanka mercilessly compiled 713/9 in Chittagong before declaring shortly after tea, Bangladesh were kept in the field for 199.3 overs, the second-longest innings in their history.

Sunil Joshi, Bangladesh's spin bowling coach, said that the spinners could have bowled with more consistency and shown more patience.

They will hope for better luck tomorrow as they try to avoid going 1-0 down in the two-Test series. "They could have had more consistency", Joshi said. And it will be a big test for them to survive the final four sessions of a Test match when they come out to bat for a second time. The biggest obstacle they need to overcome is their self-destructive mindset rather than the wary wicket, which is still to offer any considerable turn and bounce to assist the spinners.
