Sri Lanka were without frontline left-arm spinner Rangana Herath and seamer Shaminda Eranga, who were both ordered to return home due to injuries.

They were replaced by off-spinner Ajantha Mendis and paceman Nuwan Pradeep, the only changes from the side that won the first Test in Dhaka by an innings and 248 runs last week.

Bangladesh, seeking a series-levelling win, brought in batsman Imrul Kayes, all-rounder Mohammad Mahmudullah and left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak in place of Marshall Ayub, Rubel Hossain and Robiul Islam.

Bangladesh - Mushfiqur Rahim (capt), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Shakib Al Hasan, Nasir Hossain, Mominul Haque, Shamsur Rahman, Mohammad Mahmudullah, Abdur Razzak, Sohag Gazi, Al-Amin Hossain.

Sri Lanka - Angelo Mathews (capt), Dinesh Chandimal, Dimuth Karunaratne, Kaushal Silva, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Kithuruwan Vithanage, Dilruwan Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Nuwan Pradeep, Ajantha Mendis.
