Nayeem's massive bowling took 6 wickets in the 1st innings
Offspinner Nayeem Hasan enrolled his career-best 6-105 as Bangladesh wrapped up Sri Lanka for 397 in their first innings of the first Test at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium on Monday, May 16th.
Nayeem’s six-wicket pull, which was his third five or more wicket pull, included Angelo Mathews who got out as the last batter for 199. This was heartbreaking for Mathews who carried his side astutely amid the Bangladeshi bowlers' disciplined bowling on day two.
Shakib Al Hasan claimed 3-60 to complement the effort of Nayeem, who was playing his first Test since February last year. Aside from Mathews, who missed out on his second double century, Dinesh Chandimal scored 66 and Kusal Mendis made 54.
