Sri Lanka Hoping to Win Against Bangladesh


Sri Lanka coach Graham Ford believes his side is still capable of securing victory in Galle, despite a day of toil for his bowlers on a placid track. Bangladesh made 303 runs on the third day, for the fall of two wickets, with Mohammad Ashraful and Mushfiqur Rahim remaining unbeaten at stumps with 189 and 152 respectively. The visitors trail by 132.

“We’re certainly not in the position tonight, where we thought we had to be in,” Ford said. “When we came to the ground this morning, we were hoping for a better day. All credit to Bangladesh and those two batsmen (Ashraful and Mushfiqur). They batted superbly and played Bangladesh into [a] pretty strong position. It’s up to us to break this partnership early in the morning, and if we can get a couple of wickets, the game can change quite quickly.”
