Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque won the toss Monday and elected to bat in the second cricket test against Sri Lanka.
The hosts made two changes from the drawn first test, with allrounder Mosaddek Hossain and pace bowler Ebadot Hossain replacing off-spinner Nayeem Hasan and paceman Shoriful Islam. Nayeem, who took six wickets in the first innings of the series-opening match last week, and Shoriful were ruled out with injuries.
Sri Lanka also made two changes, with left-arm spinner Praveen Jayawickrama and fast bowler Kasun Rajitha replacing Lasith Embuldeniya and Vishwa Fernando. Rajitha was a concussion substitute for Fernando during the first test.
