Cricket: Sri Lanka bat against Bangladesh in second Test

Sri Lanka's captain Angelo Mathews won the toss and elected to bat in the second Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong on Tuesday. Sri Lanka were without frontline left-arm spinner Rangana Herath and seamer Shaminda Eranga, who were both ordered to return home due to injuries. They were replaced by off-spinner Ajantha Mendis and paceman Nuwan Pradeep, the only changes from the side that won the first Test in Dhaka by an innings and 248 runs last week.
