Sri Lanka v Bangladesh: Draw in first Test

Last Updated February 04 2018, 12:59Cricket

Mominul Haque struck his second century of the match as Bangladesh comfortably batted out for a draw in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Chittagong.

The hosts began the day 119 runs behind at 81 for three but endured few concerns to reach 307 for five before the captains shook hands on a draw.

Haque, who hit a first-innings 176, then struck 105 as he put on 180 with wicketkeeper Liton Das (94) for the fourth wicket.

After Haque and Das fell in quick succession, captain Mahmudullah and Mosaddek Hossain ensured there were no further alarms in the final 18 overs.
