Tillakaratne Dilshan and Prasanna Jayawardene hit half-centuries before Sri Lanka's tour game against the Bangladesh Cricket Board XI was drawn in Savar.

After the first day was washed out and the Board XI side was bowled out for 88 on day two, the Sri Lankans rallied after being reduced to three for two to post 316 all out.

They were 94 for five when Mahela Jayawardene was dismissed for 43 but 88 from Dilshan and 70 from wicket-keeper Prasanna Jayawardene revived their innings before leg-spinner Raihanuddin Arafat picked up three wickets to wrap up the innings.

The first Test between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka begins on December 26th in Mirpur.
