"This was a really good series".

Silva's fourth half-century in just his third Test held together the Sri Lanka second innings as the Bangladesh bowlers struck regularly on a pitch offering turn and bounce aplenty. Playing against Bangladesh in the second Test at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka; Herath was only 4 wickets away from this milestone mark.

Taijul finished with 4-76 taking his tally to eight wickets in the match but Bangladesh were always in the back foot once they started their second innings on a massively turning wicket.

With his four-wicket haul, Herath (415) also surpassed Wasim Akram (414) for most Test wickets by a left-arm bowler.

Earlier, Sri Lanka were all out for 226 in their second innings, securing a lead of 338 runs.

Mehidy Hasan scored an unbeaten 38, the highest score for Bangladesh, while Liton Das made 25.

Herath got rid of Imrul Kayes before the lunch break as wicketkeeper Niroshan Dickwella took a catch, just a ball after he hit the left-arm spinner for a six.

Sri Lanka complete the tour with two Twenty20 Internationals, the first of which is in Dhaka on Thursday. This was after debutant spinner Akila Dananjaya led an inspirational attack to dismiss Bangladesh for 110 in the morning session.

"I thought this wicket was hard so I just wanted to keep it simple - I just played my normal game", said the 29-year-old, who scored his maiden hundred in the first test in Chittagong.
