SL vs BAN 1st Test Day 5: Karunaratne, de Silva, Najmul and Monimul score big as the first Test ends in a draw- 

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal played a mature inning to help his side draw the first Test against Sri Lanka on Sunday here at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Kandy. The third session could not take place due to rain and both the teams agreed to a draw. For hosts, Suranga Lakmal picked two wickets.

Earlier, on Day 4 Sri Lanka skipper Dimuth Karunaratne hit a double ton while Dhananjaya de Silva scored an unbeaten 154 as the hosts didn’t lose a single wicket on day four of the opening Test against Bangladesh on Saturday before bad light stopped play.

It was a wicketless day for Bangladesh with Karunaratne (234*) and De Silva (154*) sharing an unbeaten 322-run stand as Sri Lanka went to stumps with 512 runs on board.

The hosts are still trailing by 29 runs with seven wickets in the bag as the Test moves towards a draw. Sri Lanka had ended day three on 229/3 after Bangladesh declared their first innings at 541/7 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on Thursday.
Meanwhile, de Silva completed his half-century as Sri Lanka went past the 300-run mark before the completion of the first session.

In the second session, de Silva converted his fifty into a ton as he hit his seventh Test century. Karunaratne and de Silva added 252 runs at the end of the second session as the duo extended their solid stand to 252, piling further misery on Bangladesh bowlers.
In the third session, de Silva went past 150 while Karunaratne hit his first double ton as Sri Lanka crossed the 500-run mark before umpires called stumps.
