The Tigers must have felt confident in their chances having posted 513 batting first but, after the heroics of Kusal Mendis and Dhananjaya de Silva on days two and three, Roshen joined the party by reaching three figures for the first time in Tests on Saturday.
Bangladesh spinner Taijul Islam said their approach was to score off the bad balls, but their focus will remain on saving the Test. Taijul bowled 67.3 overs, the most in an innings for a Bangladesh bowler, and conceded 219 runs, the most for a Bangladesh bowler. De Silva and Mendis dominated the Bangladesh bowlers for almost two sessions after Sri Lanka resumed their innings on 187-1. Dilruwan (32) and Herath (22) added further trouble to the Bangladesh bowlers as Sri Lanka reached 713 runs before the declaration came.
He made 109 off 230 balls before becoming the first batsman dismissed on the day. He prevented the skipper being the fourth Sri Lankan batsman to score a hundred in the innings.
Hasan ended Silva's impressive innings when the right-hander edged a low delivery to wicketkeeper Liton Das. De Silva faced 229 balls and hit 21 fours along with a six in his fourth test century and the second in as many Tests.

US : 7.9 Magnitude Earthquake Shook Gulf of Alaska
Alaska's Kodiak Island felt the effects of a 7.9 magnitude quake early Tuesday morning which was recorded 175 miles off shore. At 1:03 a.m., APD answered with another alert: "There is no TSUNAMI Warning for the Anchorage area and Vicinity".
Kayes will look back with disappointment at the stroke which brought about his downfall, attempting a ramp shot off the off-spinner Perera but only succeeding in toe-ending a catch to Chandimal at square leg.
Dickwella signalled his intention with three successive fours off Taijul, who did enjoy some respite in cleaning up Chandimal three balls after the lunch break.
Roshen fell to Mehedi Hasan in the morning session but the captain Dinesh Chandimal (87) and wicket-keeper Niroshan Dickwella (62) piled more misery on the hosts.
