After the fourth-day game was finished between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka it is pretty evident that the match will be ending in a draw as something magnificent happened on the fourth day as only one wicket fell on the fourth day as the Lankans ended the day with a score of 512 runs at the loss of three wickets and they are trailing behind 29 runs and looking at the current situation it is clear that Bangladesh bowlers are struggling.
Coming into the fourth day’s play, overnight batters Dimuth Karunaratne and Dhananjaya de Silva had a massive task at hand to bail their team out of jail.
In the first session itself on the fourth-day skipper Karunaratne scored 100 from 247 balls and his innings reflected huge composure and character.
On the other end De Silva scored his ton from 153 balls and when the tea happened on the fourth day Karunaratne was batting on 184.
When the last session of the day came Karunaratne notched up his double century on 387 balls.
Reacting to his epic knock right from ex-cricketers and fans expressed their opinion on social media. Here are some of the best Tweets described below to describe his epic knock.
The only time Bangladesh players smiled today so far was when umpires stopped the play due to bad light. #SLvBAN pic.twitter.com/GEIPIeNtUf

Dimuth Karunaratne has spent 24 hours and three minutes (1443 minutes) on the field in this match.
Captaining/fielding on days 1,2 and 3, and batting on 3 and 4. Still not done.
