Shakib ton leads Tigers

Online Desk | Update:


Shakib Al Hasan slammed his fifth Test century while skipper Mushfiqur Rahim and debutant Mosaddek Hossain hit fifties as Bangladesh took a lead on the third day of the Colombo Test.

The Tigers are 418 for 6 now, leading Sri Lanka by 80 runs.

Shakib and Mushfiq added 76 runs on Friday morning, but the latter was bowled by Suranga Lakmal soon after he reached his fifty. Mushfiq made 52 thanks to six fours.

Shakib was a changed batsman, not repeating the previous day’s madness, and his ton will certainly prove to be significant. He is unbeaten on 113 while Mosaddek is not out on 53.
