Boult ruled out
of 2nd Test
WELLINGTON---Left-arm fast bowler Trent
Boult has been ruled out of New Zealand's line-
up for the second cricket Test against South
Africa because of a leg injury.
Boult sustained the groin or hip injury during the
drawn first test at Dunedin and has been ruled unfit
for selection for second match starting Thursday
at the Basin Reserve.
Tim Southee will return to the starting XI after
missing the first test in which New Zealand elected
to play two spinners.
Matt Henry will likely return to the New Zealand
lineup to form a three-pronged seam attack with
Southee and Neil Wagner at the expense of one
of the spinners, Jeetan Patel or Mitchell Santner.
Meanwhile, 33-year-old batsman Neil Broom
will make his Test debut in place of injured Ross
Chandimal's unbeaten 86
leads Sri Lanka to 238-7
scored an unbeaten 86 to help Sri
Lanka reach 238-7 at stumps on
the opening day of the second Test
against Bangladesh yesterday.
Bangladesh bowlers dominated the
first session of what is their country's
100th Test match and took wickets
at regular intervals. Left-arm seam-
er Mustafizur Rahman (2-32) and off
spinner Mehedi Hasan (2-58) were the
most successful bowlers for the visitors.
Sri Lanka won the toss and elected
to bat first, but Bangladesh bowlers
restricted the hosts to 70-4 at lunch.
Sri Lanka would have been bowled out
cheaply if not for two crucial partner-
ships involving Chandimal.
After lunch Chandimal led the first
recovery with a 66-run partnership
with Dhananjaya de Silva (34). Sri Lanka
slumped again after de Silva was bowled
by left-arm spinner Taijul Islam and
lost seven wickets for 195 before Chan-
dimal combined with captain Rangana
Herath for an unbroken 43-run part-
nership for the eighth wicket.
Herath was batting on 18 when bad
light stopped play. Chandimal spent
more than five hours at the crease and
faced 210 deliveries and hit just four
Niroshan Dickwella also scored 34.
Earlier in the morning session, Bang-
ladesh bowlers bowled tight lines and
put the Sri Lankan openers under
Dimuth Karunaratne (7) slashed away
from his body to a ball from left-arm
seamer Rahman and was caught at gully
by Hasan with the total on 13. Hasan
(2-32) then dismissed Kusal Mendis (5),
stumped by captain Mushfiqur Rahim,
and had Upul Tharanga (11) caught at
slip by Soumya Sarkar.
Both Mendis and Tharanga had
scored centuries in Sri Lanka's win in
the first Test.
Seamer Subashis Roy trapped Asela
Gunaratne lbw at the stroke of lunch.
Bangladesh made four changes to the
lineup which lost the series-opener,
leaving out Mahmudullah Riyad, Mo-
minul Haque, Taskin Ahmed and Liton
Das from the first Test.
Mossadek Hossain, who has played
limited-overs international cricket, was
handed a first Test cap. Batsmen Imrul
Kayes, Sabbir Rahman and Islam have
all been recalled to the starting XI.
Sri Lanka left out fast bowler Lahiru
Kumara because of injury and added an
extra batsman in de Silva.
Sri Lanka leads the two-match series
after a 259-run win at Galle last week.
