Sri Lanka 92-5 at lunch following Khaled strikes
Khaled Ahmed claimed three early wickets.

Khaled Ahmed was able to capture three early wickets for Bangladesh during the first session of the first Test at Sylhet today, Friday, which led to the collapse of Sri Lanka's top half. Sri Lanka was at 92-5 at lunchtime, with Kamindu Mendis at 11 and captain Dhananjaya de Silva fighting to keep their innings together at 25 runs.

Khaled returns Dimuth Karunaratne with a brilliant delivery.

On a green field, Khaled agreed with captain Najmul Hossain Shanto's decision to bowl first. As a result of this choice, Mehidy Hasan caught opener Nishan Madushka (two) at third slip in the second over.

For the second wicket, Kusal Mendis and Dimuth Karunaratne combined for 37 runs. But when Mendis edged the ball to Zakir Hasan at gully, Khaled took another wicket.

Bangladesh team rejoice after taking a wicket in the first session.

Mendis left the field on the 16th, and in the same over, Khaled bowled Karunaratne with an in-swinger for 17. Najmul then ran out Angelo Mathews for only five with a direct throw, worsening Sri Lanka's early troubles.

Shoriful Islam added to the pressure by dismissing Dinesh Chandimal for nine, with Mehidy taking his second catch of the morning at leg slip.

Mahmudul Hasan gave Kamindu a lifeline on the next ball, and he concluded the session with De Silva.

Against Bangladesh, Sri Lanka has played a perfect Test series. On March 30, the series' second and final game is scheduled to take place in Chittagong.
