Chittagong: Sri Lanka set Bangladesh a daunting target of 467 runs to record a series-levelling win in the second and final Test in Chittagong on Friday.

The tourists, who led by 161 runs on the first innings, declared their second knock at 305-4 in the final session of the fourth day`s play at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury stadium.

Kumar Sangakkara followed his 319 in the first innings with 105 in the second, joining Englishman Graham Gooch as the only batsmen to score a triple-century and century in the same Test.

Gooch made 333 and 123 against India at Lord`s in 1990.

Dinesh Chandimal remained unbeaten on 100.

The tourists are looking to sweep the short series after winning the first Test by an innings and 248 runs in Dhaka last week.
