The two-day warm-up game between visiting Sri Lanka and BCB XI ended in a draw after rain allowed only 18.2 overs over the two days at the BKSP-3 ground.

The Lankan side, however, reached 50-1 when umpires finally called off the day two game.

Oshada Fernando was batting on 26 with Kusal Mendis on 22. Captain Dimuth Karunaratne was the only batter to be out on 2 on day one when pacer Mukidul Islam Mugdho forced him to edge a delivery behind the wicket.

Unable to practice for the first two-match Test series, which starts on May 15 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram, the Sri Lankan side spent the day indoors at BKSP.

Only 8.3 overs were possible on day one before Sri Lanka elected to bat first. They reached 14-1 on that day.

The Lankan side, however, will travel to Chattogram tonight to take Bangladesh in the first Test. Bangladesh however had already started their practice session in Chattogram.
