He was made to do it.                    English Language Tips 2: Write `law-and-order situation`, NOT `law and order situation`, When you write simply `law land order`, there is no need for using hyphen, as there is no need to make it a compound word. In the first instance, law-and-order is made into a compound word to create an adjective to qulify the noun situation. In the second, the phrase law and order is not followed by any such NP and so you need not use such hyphenated compound as adjective.                    English Language Tips 1: Write `adviser to the prime minister`, NOT `adviser of the prime minister`.                    Write `adviser of the government`, NOT `adviser to the government`.

Bangladesh tigers made history in cricket as they won their centenary Test by four wickets against Sri Lanka at Colombo’s P Sara Oval Sunday, level ling a two-match series at 1-1.

A brilliant knock of 82 from Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal and the third-wicket stand with Sabbir Rahman of 109 enabled the Tigers to beat the Lions for the first time in Test cricket. Bangladesh recorded their ninth win in 100 Tests with this victory.

Dilruwan Perera and Rangana Herath took three wickets each to peg back Bangladesh. Dilruwan captured 3-59 in 22 while Herath took 3-75 in 24.5 overs.

Shakib Al Hasan had a splendid show with six wickets and a hundred during their first innings of 467. Mustafizur Rahman seemed to be getting back to his best and captured five wickets in this match. Mosaddek Hossain was the sixth wicket to fall for Bangladesh.
