Sri Lanka’s convincing 328-run win over Bangladesh in the first Test at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium propelled them up the World Test Championship (WTC) rankings. This victory, achieved in their inaugural Test at the venue, showcased Sri Lanka’s prowess in all facets of the game, securing an unassailable 1-0 lead in the series.

Following their win, Sri Lanka earned 12 points in three games, elevating their points percentage to 33.33, placing them alongside Bangladesh in the sixth position.

The first Test outcome triggered shifts in the rankings, with the West Indies ascending to the fifth spot, sharing the same points percentage as Sri Lanka and Bangladesh but with a higher points tally of 16. Pakistan also saw an improvement, moving to the fourth spot with a points percentage of 36.66 and a points tally of 22.

Day 4 Action

Despite Mominul Haque’s resilient batting display for Bangladesh, Sri Lanka’s formidable bowling attack proved too much to handle.
