Abdur Razzak rips through Sri Lanka

Bangladesh left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak took three wickets for 24 runs in his comeback match to help restrict Sri Lanka to 105-4 at lunch on the first day of the second and final cricket test on Thursday.

Playing in his first test since 2014, Razzak troubled the Sri Lankan batsmen on a Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium pitch offering turn and bounce.

Opener Kusal Mendis, who scored 196 in the first test, was 64 not out at lunch, with Roshen Silva on 5.

Razzak removed opener Dimuth Karurantne, who was stumped on 3. Mendis and another first-test centurion, Dhananjaya de Silva (19), appeared set to form a big partnership before left-arm spinner Taijul Islam had de Silva caught at first slip, ending a 47-run partnership.
