News Desk: On the last day, thanks to the fight of Taizul Islam, Bangladesh started to see the hope of victory. However, the Sri Lankan batsmen Niroshan Dickwella and Dinesh Chandimal did not allow the hosts to live up to that expectation. The Chittagong Test ended in a lifeless draw against them. Sri Lanka, who finished the fourth day with 39 runs for the loss of 2 wickets in 18 overs, started the day with positive cricket. He scored 60 runs in the first ten overs of the day. Sri Lanka 100 touches in 26 overs. However, Kushal Mendis left shortly after. Angelo Mathews, the centurion of the previous innings, could not last long after his departure for 108 runs. He goes to Sri Lanka at lunch break with a little discomfort. The day before, Taizul had run out Oshada Fernando in a direct throw. He also picked up the next three wickets. But then Chandimal and Dickwella resisted. The unbeaten 99-run partnership of the two took the match out of reach of Bangladesh. As a result, the two teams accepted the draw long before the scheduled time.
