Sri Lanka beat Bangladesh in the 2nd Test
Following five intense days of cricket, Sri Lanka triumphed over Bangladesh by a commanding 192-run margin on Day 5, securing victory in the second and final Test at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. Defending their formidable total of 510, Sri Lanka managed to bowl out Bangladesh for 318 on the final day’s play, despite a resilient unbeaten knock of 81 by Mehidy Hasan Miraz. Lahiru Kumara showcased his prowess with the ball, claiming four crucial wickets. This victory sealed a comprehensive 2-0 series win for Sri Lanka, marking a resounding whitewash.

Formidable Sri Lankan batting sets the stage​

In the contest, Sri Lanka set a formidable score after opting to bat first, amassing a total of 531 runs. Although, despite six batters crossing the 50 runs mark, the absence of individual centuries was notable. Bangladesh’s response fell short as they were bundled out for 178, with Asitha Fernando leading Sri Lanka’s bowling attack with four wickets. Although Zakir Hasan managed a fifty, Bangladesh’s innings lacked substantial partnerships. Sri Lanka showed resilience in their second innings, declaring at 157/7, with veteran Angelo Mathews playing a pivotal role by contributing a brisk 56 off 74 balls.

Lahiru Kumara’s bowling brilliance leads Sri Lanka’s charge​

In Bangladesh’s chase of 511, they displayed determination but ultimately fell short, managing 318 runs. Mehidy Hasan was their standout performer with an unbeaten 81, although he lacked support from his teammates. Kumara’s pace troubled the Bangladeshi batters as he claimed four crucial wickets for Sri Lanka.

Kamindu Mendis shines bright against Bangladesh​

Kamindu Mendis, whose unbeaten 92 in the first innings was instrumental, also made significant contributions with the ball as he picked three wicket later on, earning him the Player of the Match award. His exceptional performance throughout the series, which included twin centuries in the first Test, led to him being named the Player of the Series.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:​

Magnificent series win @OfficialSLC Did lot of things right and was ruthless right throughout. All 4 Fast bowlers and Kamindu was the stand out of all. Others also chipped in when mattered the most. Looking forward to head back home after a while tomorrow to my family👍 #BANvSL

A test win is special. But two consecutive test wins spearheaded by fast bowlers in subcontinent conditions away from home is like a splash for cold water under the scorching sun. Brilliant from Vishwa/Kumara combo. Asitha stood tall above his stature as always. Brilliant 🇱🇰 pic.twitter.com/rbbztf07Yg

If Bangladesh showed this batting effort during the first innings most likely these mongs would’ve saved this test . An extra 150 runs in first innings would’ve made the difference. Absolutely pathetic performance at home & should be ashamed about themselves #BANvSL

Sri Lanka whitewashed Bangladesh 2-0 in the test series in Bangladesh! 🔴

Bangladesh's top order batting is in a bad state. As we saw in the first match, there is no noticeable change in the second match. How much longer like this?
