    OUT! Caught. Ravichandran Ashwin to Nuwan Pradeep. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed to mid on, by Dhawan. And there is the victory for India as Pradeep is the last wicket to fall. Sri Lanka will be encouraged by their second innings effort on a very tricky pitch at times, but the first innings will disappoint them massively. Jadeja (5-152) and Ashwin (2-132) continuously troubled the batsmen with the sharp turn and bounce, while Pandya (2-31) kept things tight with his off cutters. Karunaratne (141) and Mendis (110) kept India at bay for a while but it was never going to be enough. India have now taken the series win with one Test to spare with the teams moving onto Kandy on Saturday.

    APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Ravichandran Ashwin to Nuwan Pradeep. Carrom ball half volley, down leg side on the front foot working, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Ashwin, appeal made for L.B.W. Ashwin persuades Kohli to use a review and it's a poor one. The ball pitches outside leg stump so can't be given out.
