Centuries by Lahiru Thirimanne and Dinesh Chandimal extended Sri Lanka's domination on the second day, allowing for a declaration at 570, for the loss of only four wickets.

 

Having been on the field for four and a half sessions, Bangladesh had the better part of the afternoon to regroup and script their reply, and ended the day on a satisfying 135 for 2 with a set Mohammad Ashraful at the crease.

 

Though the visitors had a long way to go, they had the platform to go about their first target of going past the follow-on mark.
