With four wickets left, Bangladesh trails by 92 runs following Vishwa's dismissal.
Against Sri Lanka, Bangladesh was knocked out for 188 runs in the first innings.

On the second afternoon of the first Test in Sylhet, Vishwa Fernando spearheaded the Sri Lankan bowling attack, taking four wickets and helping to knock out Bangladesh for a score of 188 runs. Additionally impressive were Lahiru Kumara and Kasun Rajitha, who each claimed three wickets.

In their opening innings, Sri Lanka was 19-1 after limiting the hosts to 188. Just before tea, Nahid Rana removed Nishan Madushka for ten, with Dimuth Karunaratne remaining at the wicket.

With a career-high 47 runs, nightwatchman Taijul Islam was Bangladesh's highest scorer. He batted with Mahmudul Hasan, the opener, when Bangladesh resumed at 32-3.

 Mahmudul Hasan was dismissed by Kumara with his opening delivery of the innings, and Dhananjaya de Silva caught him at second slip. After going undefeated for nine hours, Mahmudul was out for twelve.

Despite Shahadat Hossain's aggressive blows, he was again dismissed by Kumara's bowling, edging to Dhananjaya de Silva at second slip for eighteen runs.

Before Kumara struck once more, Taijul and Liton Das managed to put up 41 runs for the sixth wicket. With four boundaries to his credit, Liton was bowled by a late swinger that struck his middle stump and forced him back to the pavilion for 25.

Rajitha dismissed Taijul as he nicked the ball to wicketkeeper Kusal Mendis behind the stumps. 

Mehidy Hasan was removed by Rajitha for 11, leaving the last players to attempt to close the gap. Fernando shattered the relationship between Khaled Ahmed and Shoriful Islam by getting rid of Shoriful for a 15. After that, he got rid of Khaled for 22 to end Bangladesh's innings.

On the opening day, Sri Lanka amassed 280 runs in their first innings, with 102 runs apiece going to hundreds for de Silva and Kamindu Mendis.

In a Test series, Bangladesh has never defeated Sri Lanka.

On March 30, the series' second and last game is scheduled to take place in Chittagong.
