What will celebrate ‘timed out’, Sri Lanka is not able to spend ‘time’ on the field

Although not stated in plain language, the indication was clear, if Sri Lanka wins the Test series, it will appear with ‘timed out’ again. But in the first session of the first Test in Sylhet, Sri Lanka’s dream of winning the series has moved away. The team’s batsmen are not able to survive on the wicket.

Sri Lanka is shaking in front of the pace of Bangladesh. Khaled Ahmed and Shariful Islam pressed the Lankans using the condition and fresh wicket. Sri Lanka scored 92 runs after losing 5 wickets in the first two hours.

Sri Lanka lost five wickets in the 17th over of the innings. The visitors could have lost 6 wickets in the very next ball if Mahmudul Hasan did not take the catch. In the first session, the ball was not given to the two spinners of Bangladesh, the pacers of Bangladesh showed so much power.

Bangladesh hit in the second over of the day. However, Nishan Madushka’s contribution is more. The Lankan opener (2) caught while driving the ball well outside the offstump. The visitors were only 3 runs away. The pair of Kushal Mendis and Dimuth Karunaratne handled the blow. However, the way Mendis was batting, it looked like he would be out anytime.

That time came in the 12th over. But not to hit, Mendis caught while leaving the ball. At the end of the over, Khaled struck again. Bowled from round the wicket favored Angle, with extra swing. As a result, his team found gaps in Karunaratna’s solid defense. Sri Lanka lost 3 wickets for 41 runs at the end of 12 overs.

Angelo Mathews, the host of the timed out controversy, is also out, according to Khaled. Dinesh Chandimal pushed his ball to cover for a run. But Nazmul Hossain Shanter’s throw broke the stumps before Mathews could reach safety. Chandimal departed after the Lankans lost their fourth wicket in 47 balls and picked up 10 wickets.

Shariful said on the hip. While playing it at fine leg, Chandimal caught Mirage at short fine leg. Kamindu took the catch at slip. But Joy could not hold the catch at third slip.

The two veteran pacers got wickets but the anointed Nahid Rana was at a cost. Dhananjaya de Silva attacked him late on and picked up runs at ODI pace and is unbeaten in 25 off 24 balls.
