Dilhara Fernando had a fine day with the ball for Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka paceman Dilhara Fernando took seven wickets in a day to leave Bangladesh facing a possible innings defeat in the second Test in Colombo.

Bowled out for 191 in their first innings and reduced to 131-4 as they followed on, the tourists were still trailing by 135 runs after day two.

Fernando took 5-60 and then had 2-25 as Bangladesh's specialist batsmen generally failed in both innings.

The only half-century was provided by Shahriar Nafees' 51, a personal best.

Nafees, playing his second Test, put on 75 in 21 overs with Mohammad Ashraful before falling to a fine slip catch just before stumps.

Thilan Samaraweera scooped the chance to give Muttiah Muralitharan his fourth wicket of the match.

Ashraful, the top-scorer in the first innings with 42, was unbeaten on 21 at stumps.

Captain Habibul Bashar made scores of 18 and 10, Fernando removing him on each occasion while the equally experienced Javed Omar managed 18 and nine.
