SL want to end Tigers innings under 500

Sports Reporter, Ctg

After being pummeled by Bangladeshi batsmen throughout the first day, Sri Lanka aimed to get the line and length right on day two to resist Bangladesh’s confident march.

To be precise, Sri Lanka batting coach Thilan Samaraweera said, they want to prevent Bangladesh scoring from 500 plus total, which is highly likely give the hosts scored a 374 for four, at a staggering run rate of 4.15 per over. The score is highest for Bangladesh on a single day, eclipsing 365 for eight against West Indies in 2012 in Khulna.

“I think the last two wickets were big. We have to put more pressure on Bangladesh in the first session tomorrow, and keep them under 500. I think that’ll be a good effort,” Samaraweera said.

“First half is crucial tomorrow. We have to build pressure. We have given away 30-40 runs more today.”

From the experience, Samaraweera understood, it would be pretty good wicket till the day three before giving the bowlers some assistance.

“It is hard to say. We still have to bat to know how this pitch behaved. I think this is a pretty good batting wicket. Then again It is hard to say because this is the first day. I feel till day three this is a good pitch. It will turn but slowly from then on.”

Once the batting coach of Bangladesh, Samaraweera hailed Mominul Haque’s knock, saying his approach against spinners was nice to see.

“Mini (Mominul) batted really well. His approach against spin was really well,” he said.
