       Good afternoon
       Hello and welcome back to Colombo
       It is pouring down here in Colombo.
       It is monsoon time and it pours when it rains in this part of the
        world
       The ground-staff are having a tough time to keep the covers in
        place, stiff wind blowing across the ground.
       We will be back as soon as play resumes.
       The latest from P. Saravanamuttu Stadium in Colombo: The good news
        is that it has stopped raining.
       There is a great deal of water all around, the Super Soppers are at
        work, getting rid of all the water deposited on the covers.
       The ground-staff are working hard. It will take some time though,
        for the moment - it looks like we might have some cricket later in
        the day.
       There is a stiff breeze blowing across, which would help the drying
        process, the super soppers have a great deal of work to do.
       Another spell of rain could undo all the good work done so far,
        there are some grey clouds hanging around in the distance.
       So that is the news we have for you at this moment. We will be back
        - hopefully with some good news.

Match State: Stumps - Day 1

       Good Morning for the second days play in the Bangladesh v Sri Lanka
        test at Colombo
       Yesterday we saw Bangladesh tumble from a respectable 107 for 2 to
        be winkled out for 161
       Shortly before lunch Jayasuriya trapped Sarkar lbw with his first
        delivery of the day, ending a 57 run partnership for the third
        wicket with Habibul Bashar (24), Bangladesh's most consistent top
        order batsman.
       Minutes later Bashar was also trapped lbw, this time by
        Muralitharan, and the tourists went into lunch on 111 for four
       Then torrential rain curtailed play for 102 minutes in the
        afternoon, before Sri Lanka's bowlers, mostly Muralitharan started
        to assert themselves on the inexperienced tourists, four of who
        are playing their first game
       A disappointing end to their innings followed as Bangladesh lost
        their last five wickets for 13 runs
       Muralitharan ended up with 5 for 39 ably supported by the Sri
        Lankan pacers
       In fading light Sri Lanka openers started off a bit streakily in
        the intial overs but Atapattu and Arnold played out 7 overs and
        play ended with the hosts nicely poised at 20/0
       Today we expect lots of runs for Sri Lanka but the Bangladesh
        bowlers will be trying their best to grab some early wickets in
        the usual heavy morning atmosphere here
       The umpires (Messrs Shepherd and Bucknor) are out there and play
        about to start
       We hope to have some extra overs today, 105 are scheduled
       Talha Jubair on to start
   7.1 Talha Jubair to Arnold, two runs, an inside edge to fine leg
   7.2 Talha Jubair to Arnold, no run, defends it back off the front foot
   7.3 Talha Jubair to Arnold, one run, nicely turned to mid wicket
   7.4 Talha Jubair to Atapattu, OUT: Wow! the much needed early break, an
        inswinger, went through the bat and pad gap and of course onto
        middle stump

  78.6 Alamgir Kabir to Jayasuriya, FOUR, Shot! Stand and deliver, waits

        express pace by any means, just the good line and length, de Silva

  83.2 Talha Jubair to de Silva, FOUR, this is outrageous cricket, short
        and wide outside the off, not a convincing square cut, hit in the
        air, past gully and down to third-man, there is a fielder charging
        across, stops and attempts a sliding tackle, kicks it over the

       Sri Lanka win by an innings and 196 runs.
       So as expected Sri Lanka win well within three days of a five day
        Test match
       Bangladesh have to go a long way to challenge the likes of Sri
        Lanka in a Test match. But, then, this is all in the learning
        curve as they say.
       Apart from a few performances- fifties by Hannan Sarkar and Al
        Sahariar, and a fighting knock by skipper Khaled Mashud,
        Bangladesh has had no notable performances.
       As for Sri Lanka, Aravinda de Silva hit a double hundred,
        Jayasuriya helped himself to a century.
       Mahela Jayawardene made a duck!
       And... as always Muttiah Muralitharan picked up a lot of wickets
       5/39 in the first innings and 5/58 in the second.
       That is all we have for you from the P.Saravanamuttu Stadium in
        Colombo
       Thanks for being with us. Cheers!
