Mominul slams unbeaten 175 as Bangladesh amass 374 on day one

Abdur Razzak returns to Bangladesh after four years for Sri Lanka Tests

Mushfiqur Rahim missed a century by eight runs, being out on 92 toward the end of the day's play, but he and Mominul combined for a national record of 236 runs for the third wicket.

Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who regained captaincy of the country's test team in December, will miss the first test against Sri Lanka starting on January 31 due to an injury, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said. Mominul Haque has struck two boundaries since coming on and Kayes in his innings of 29. Opener Tamim Iqbal chipped in with 52.

Off-spinner Dilruwan Perera bowled Tamim with a lovely delivery that pitched outside off-stump and spun sharply to beat the batsman and clip the bails. Together with Mushfiqur, he kept Sri Lanka frustrated throughout the second session. They surpassed the 157-run stand between Mominul and Tamim against New Zealand in 2013.

Tigers are off to a good start at Chittagong as Tamim Iqbal has played some fine shots early on in the innings.

Tamim launched Bangladesh's innings in aggressive style, hitting pace bowler Lahiru Kumara for three boundaries in succession in the second over of the day.

Mominul hit an unbeaten 175 as the hosts reached 374-4 at stumps after electing to bat first at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. Skipper Mahmudullah Riyad is captaining the side in absence of Shakib AL Hasan, who is out of the first Test due to an injury.

After almost four years since his last Test match, left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak has been recalled to Bangladesh's squad for the first Test against Sri Lanka. Mosaddek Hossain is also back in the Test fold after he was dropped following the tour of Sri Lanka.

Mominul's authoritative batting came at his favourite ground after Bangladesh had lost both openers, Tamim and Imrul Kayes, in the morning session despite starting strongly.
