Moments of the day, 1st Test, Day 5: Horrible first hour and Herath's record

Horrible first hour

Bangladesh started day five on 67 runs without loss. Opening batsman Soumya Sarkar was batting well on day four and Bangladesh needed a good start from their opener in the morning session on Saturday in order to save the Test match. However, Soumya got out in the second ball of the day and from thereon in, the downfall started. Soumya was nearly dismissed in the first ball of the day when he played a half-hearted forward defensive shot. Mominul Haque and Tamim iqbal also departed quickly to heap more pressure on Bangladesh. Later, Shakib al Hasan and Mahmudullah were also dismissed and suddenly from 67/0, Bangladesh were stuttering on 194 for nine wickets.

Herath, highest wicket-taking left-arm spinner

Sri Lankan slow bowler Rangana Herath took six wickets in the second innings, in the process clinching his 29th five-wicket haul in 79 Tests. He also created history on Saturday as he became the highest wicket-taking left-arm spinner when he bagged the wicket of Liton Kumar Das in the 51st over of the second innings, surpassing New Zealand’s Daniel Vettori (362). With nine wickets in the first Test against Bangladesh, Herath’s wicket tally has now gone up to 366.
