Najmul hits maiden Test century

Youngster Najmul Hossain Shanto hit the maiden century of his Test career against Sri Lanka in the first match of a two-match Test series at Pallekelle International Cricket Stadium in Kandy on Wednesday.

The elegant left-hander carved out 102 runs off 236 balls as Bangladesh scored 252 runs for two wickets in the third session of the first innings on Day 1.

He hit 12 fours and a six in his brilliant innings.

Earlier, Tamim Iqbal was close to completing his 10th Test ton, but fell 10 runs short of the target in the second session.
