I had to take a lunch break on the third day of the second Test 5 balls earlier. The reason was rain. The second session of the Bangladesh-Sri Lanka Test could not be resumed after the lunch break due to heavy rains. Finally, the third day of the session was washed away by the rain. The rain has stopped in Mirpur till the latest news is received. Field preparation work is also going on. Observations were made once at 3 pm. The umpires will announce the start of the match after the last observation at 3:30 pm. The probable start time of the game is 4:15 p.m.
In the first innings before the break, the Lankans collected 210 runs for 4 wickets in 60.1 overs. They are 155 runs behind Bangladesh.

After that, Shakib deprived Sri Lankan captain Dimuth Koranaratne of a century. He was bowled for 70 runs in a great delivery. Angelo Mathews and Dhananjaya de Silva repaired the rest of the innings. Mathews is batting for 25 runs in the unbroken partnership of 47 runs for the fifth wicket, Dhananjaya for 30 runs.
