Tea Bangladesh 250 for 2 (Mominul 107*, Mushfiqur 47*)v Sri Lanka
Mominul Haque – free and flowing – sailed to a rapid hundred in the second session, while Sri Lanka toiled – wayward, wicketless, and already struggling in the Test.
Even in the periods in which Sri Lanka bowled well to Mominul, he made precise adjustments with his feet, and manufactured the room that allowed him to play profitable strokes. Throughout his 103-ball innings, which has yielded 107 runs so far, barely an angry stroke was played. Timing and placement defined this innings, and on the rare occasions in which Mominul got himself into difficult positions, his excellent eye bailed him out.
