The Islanders were left red-faced when Pakistan chased down 302 in 57.3 overs on a fifth-day pitch to score a series-levelling win in the final Test in Sharjah last Monday.

Commentary (Bangladesh 2nd Innings)

Mahela Jayawardene is declared the Man of the Match for his unbeaten double hundred. That will be all from us. Do join us for updates on the next Test between these two that starts on Feb 4th.

Kaushal Silva, Mahela Jayawardene and Kithuruwan Vithanage scored hundreds with Jayawardene carrying his bat through for a double hundred. With a mammoth lead 498, Sri Lanka once again bundled out the hosts for just 250, a humbling that is sure to dent their confidence further. Nothing much to brag about for the home side as they surrendered rather meekly to the might of the Lankans.

A landslide victory for Sri Lanka then and with that, they go 1-0 up in the series. A thorough mugging for the home side as they lose by an innings and 248 runs. Sri Lanka dominated the game since day 1. Winning the toss, they put Bangladesh in and bowled them out on day 1 itself. After that, the marathon started for Bangladesh as they were kept in the field for more than two days.
