The records stacked up and so did the individual milestones. After the captain Mushfiqur Rahim became the first Bangladesh batsman to score a double-century, Nasir Hossain brought up his maiden century to help Bangladesh pass their previous highest Test score of 556, ending with 638. Bangladesh finished with a lead of 68, also taking a psychological advantage against tired Sri Lankan outfit unaccustomed to spending so much time in the field in their favourite home venue. With four sessions left in the Test, Sri Lanka saw through the first comfortably, losing just one wicket and leading by 48.
It was the first instance of three or more Bangladesh batsmen scoring centuries in an innings. Mohammad Ashraful fell ten short of a double century, showing remarkable composure till his dismissal for 190. Mushfiqur achieved what Ashraful couldn't and that it came from the captain was all the more special. Nasir has been one of Bangladesh's best emerging players, scoring four fifties in six Tests coming into this game. He finally converted one of his half-centuries, adding to Sri Lanka's woes.
