Last Updated 16 March 2013, 18:22 IST

Left-arm spinner Rangana Herath completed a five-wicket haul as Sri Lanka dismissed Bangladesh for 240 runs in their first innings on the opening day of the second and final Test on Saturday. 

Herath took full advantage of the visitors' inability to score on the sluggish outfield to finish with 5-68, his 15th five-wicket haul in Tests, while paceman Nuwan Kulasekara grabbed 3-54 as Mominul Haque top-scored with 64.
