Bangladesh win

Nelson Mail - - SPORT -

Bangladesh have se­cured their maiden test win against Sri Lanka, and their sec­ond against a ma­jor test-play­ing na­tion in the last five months, with an event­ful four­wicket vic­tory in their 100th test in Colombo. The tour­ing side chased down their tar­get of 191 in the fi­nal ses­sion of the test yes­ter­day to level the two-match se­ries at 1-1. Bangladesh had lost 15 tests and drawn two of their pre­vi­ous 17 matches in the five­day for­mat against Sri Lanka and the vic­tory was un­doubt­edly their best away from home after they beat Eng­land in Dhaka last Oc­to­ber.
