The first cricket test between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in Kandy has ended in a tame draw.

After not a single wicket fell yesterday, there was some action today.

Sri Lanka lost five wickets before they declared their first innings closed on 648 for the loss of eight wickets. That gave them a first innings lead of 107.

Bangladesh were then restricted to 100 for two before rain brought a premature end to the test match.

The second test of the two match series will be played at the same venue and starts on Thursday.
