No sooner than Sri Lankan skipper Dinesh Chandimal won the toss in the series deciding second Test against Bangladesh, the visitors decided to bat first. At the end of the day, the decision quite positively paid out for the opposition, the home team is in the poorer side amidst 14 wickets shuffled in the first day.
Still trailing by 166 runs from the paltry first innings total of Sri Lanka, Bangladesh have just 6 wickets left in hand with prime batters like Tamim Iqbal, Mominul Haque and Mushfiqur Rahim all back to the pavilion.
Attending the day end press briefing at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, veteran spinner Abdur Razzak reckoned the high probability of Bangladesh to get back into the game.
“I think it’s not right to say so in Test cricket; here every session contains different scenarios. A team may get upper hand in a session and in the next, it might be the other team,” he said.
He further said, “In Test cricket, there are time to recover from such conditions. If you point out to our position in this Test match, I say, it is very much possible for us to make a comeback although we lost several wickets more than usual.”
Therefore, Razzak strongly denotes the availability of results in this particular match.
“The first innings of the match is already over and the second innings is half way through. A result is inevitable here, I think the match will be over before five days,” Razzak said. 1 of 1
