Mominul hit his second century of the game to secure a draw for the hosts.

Mominul Haque became the first player from Bangladesh to score a century in both innings of a Test as he steered his side to a draw in the opening match against Sri Lanka on Sunday. Bangladesh batted out three sessions on the fifth and final day on Sunday (February 4) to ensure a draw, finishing with 307 for 5 when the captains made a decision to shake hands with the game only headed one way in Chittagong.

Sri Lanka declared its first innings on 9-713, taking a 200-run first-innings lead over Bangladesh.

The victory followed an impressive display in the third Test , and India now have two successive victories away from home. Part of his confidence also stemmed from his knock in India's second innings in the Johannesburg Test.

But a steady 180-run stand between batsmen Mominul Haque and Liton Das brought the Tigers through safely.

Das was first to raise his bat as he went to 50 with a crisp cover drive to the boundary just after lunch, and 14 overs later Mominul wrote his name into the history books with his fifth century, the milestone coming off 154 balls.

Sri Lanka's slower bowlers could extract a bit of turn, but it wasn't anything that posed a threat to the Bangladesh batsmen per se.
