Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test Day 3 Live score Sri Lanka took a commanding lead on Day 2

Dhaka: Off-spinner Akila Dananjaya (5/24) claimed a five-wicket haul in an innings on debut as Sri Lanka thrashed Bangladesh by 215 runs in the second Test to win the two-Test series 1-0 here, Saturday.

The spin trio of Dananjaya, Dilruwan Perera and Rangana Herath shared all the Bangladesh second-innings wickets.

Roshen Silva - named the player of the match and series - finished unbeaten on 70 for Sri Lanka as they set Bangladesh a huge total on a bowler-friendly wicket at Shere Bangla National Stadium.

Winter Olympics opening ceremony sees Intel use record 1218 drones
The drones are lightweight and are the only ones of their kind, built specifically for outdoor light shows, according to Intel. The 2018 Winter Olympics Ceremony opened with a bang, literally.

Previously, Herath became the first left arm spinner to cross the 400 wicket mark, and the fifth spinner behind legends such as Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne and the Indian pairing of Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh. They were bowled out under 125 in both the innings of this Test. Bangladesh never made below 130 at home since 2009.

Haque looked good while he lasted, at least in terms of his attitude, but Mushfiqur Rahim (25) followed the Kayes template in trying to go for his shots, attempting two reverse sweeps even before he had opened his account.

Similar to its first-innings' collapse when it lost 5-3, Bangladesh lost 5-23 in its second innings to make it an easy victory for Sri Lanka inside three days.

Hong Kong Bus Accident Claims Lives

Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam bowled Lakmal for 21 to end the partnership before he trapped Herath leg-before off the next ball to wrap up the Sri Lanka innings. K'ratne c Kayes b Mehedi 32 K. Mendis lbw Razzak 7 D. De Silva b Taijul 28 D.

Dow turns 567-point loss into 567-point gain as stocks rally
