  • 102.6

    Ravichandran Ashwin to Niroshan Dickwella. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Sharma.

    Handshakes all round. Sri Lanka have done it, they batted the whole day while only losing two wickets to save the Test even though they were behind the eight ball for the majority of the game. Great fight from the visitors on what has been a tough tour. Credit has to go to Dhananjaya de Silva who scored an unbeaten 119 while Roshen Silva, on debut, finished with a maiden half century.

    Virat Kohli though will rue the opportunity to not be able to finish off the game and on another occasion they might have declared earlier. On that note though the pitch was very placid so it might not have made a difference in the end.

    Both teams now turn their heads to the ODI series which starts on Sunday. Join us then.
