Murali cashes in with six wickets
Third Test, Kandy, day two (close): Sri Lanka 30-0 v Bangladesh 131

M Muralitharan
It was all rather easy for the brilliant Muttiah Muralitharan

Sri Lanka's Muttiah Muralitharan cashed in with four further wickets to finish with 6-28 as Bangladesh were bowled out for 131 on day two of the Kandy Test.

On another rain-hit day, the tourists failed to launch a recovery from their precarious overnight score of 72-4.

Muralitharan, playing in his home town, took his career tally to 694, just 14 short of Shane Warne's world record.

In reply, Sri Lanka reached 30-0 at stumps, with Michael Vandort unbeaten on 25 at the Asgiriya Stadium.

Left-armer Sujeewa de Silva took the first wicket of the day when Mahela Jayawardene held a straightforward slip catch off a loose drive from Tushar Imran.

Skipper Mohammad Ashraful was then caught behind off De Silva for 26, effectively ending any hopes of a reasonable score.

Muralitharan got stuck in with two caught-and-bowleds - the first a fine one-handed efforts - and then picked up numbers 10 and 11 for ducks via bat-pad catches.
