The tourists had finished Day 1 on 60 for 0 after 19 overs and they picked up where they left off on Tuesday, but were aided by Bangladesh's poor performance in the field.

A shaky morning session, which saw Bangladesh take the wicket of Dimuth Karunaratne and threaten to take more, was soon forgotten as Sri Lanka bounced back after lunch.

They added 98 without the loss of another wicket as Kaushal Silva claimed his first Test ton. Kumar Sangakkara also added a half-century while Mahela Jayawardene and Dinesh Chandimal both contributed to the scoreboard.

The patient batting approach of Silva really put Sri Lanka in control:

Silva, the star of the show, eventually bowed out for 139 and shared century stands with Sangakkara and Karunaratne, which will likely go a long way to sealing Bangladesh's fate.

Jayawardene remains at the crease on Wednesday on 42, while Angelo Mathews, Kithuruwan Vithanage and Dilruwan Perera are still to bat.

Sangakkara hit a half-century for Sri Lanka.

After taking two wickets late in the day, Silva and Sangakkara, Bangladesh's only hope will be to skittle through the remaining batsmen and produce an unlikely fightback over the remaining three days.

The wicket of Sangakkara was an important one:

However, if Sri Lanka are able to continue their command of the Test then they may only need to bat once, and with Jayawardene still in situ the hosts will have to up their game.
