Taijul finished with 4-76 taking his tally to eight wickets in the match but Bangladesh were always in the back foot once they started their second innings on a massively turning wicket.

Roshen Silva's steady innings helped Sri Lanka stretch the lead before the visitors struck twice to leave Bangladesh with an uphill task on Day 3 of the second Test in Dhaka on Saturday (February 10).

Dananjaya would take over from there, claiming the best match figures (8-44) by a Sri Lankan on debut, as Bangladesh crumbled, losing their final six wickets for just 23 runs to suffer a series defeat.

The spin trio of Dananjaya, Dilruwan Perera and Rangana Herath shared all the Bangladesh second-innings wickets.

Herath became the highest wicket-taker in Tests as a left-arm bowler, eclipsing Pakistan fast bowler Wasim Akram's 414 wickets. Sri Lanka's second innings came to an end at 226, with Silva scoring an unbeaten 70, to set the hosts a hefty target of 339.

Off-spinner Perera struck in the second over of Bangladesh's chase, dismissing opener Tamim Iqbal for 2. Herath took four wickets in the second innings after going wicketless in the first as the Lankans beat the hosts by a whopping 215 runs to clinch the series 1-0. Bangladesh had scored 110 in its first innings.

Earlier, with the pitch providing plenty of help for the bowlers, Bangladesh began the day with Mehidy Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman operating in tandem.

Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam bowled Lakmal for 21 to end the partnership before he trapped Herath leg-before off the next ball to wrap up the Sri Lanka innings.
