    As it happened: Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka, 1st Test, Day 1

    (For ball-by-ball commentary, scroll down to the bottom of the page.)

    Sri Lanka will look to bounce back after an embarrassing setback last week as Angelo Mathews' tourists begin a two-Test series against an equally inconsistent Bangladesh from Monday.

    The Islanders were left red-faced when Pakistan chased down 302 in 57.3 overs on a fifth-day pitch to score a series-levelling win in the final Test in Sharjah last Monday.

    Playing XIs:

    Sri Lanka: Kaushal Silva, Dimuth Karunaratne, Kumar Sangakkara(w), Mahela Jayawardene, Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Mathews(c), Kithuruwan Vithanage, Dilruwan Perera, Shaminda Eranga, Rangana Herath, Suranga Lakmal

    Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Shamsur Rahman, Marshall Ayub, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim(w/c), Shakib Al Hasan, Nasir Hossain, Sohag Gazi, Robiul Islam, Al-Amin Hossain, Rubel Hossain
