Sri Lanka were going strong against India on Day Three of the third and final Test at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi on Monday. Despite facing breathing troubles on Day Two owing to alarming levels of pollution in the city, the Sri Lankan batsmen did not show any major symptoms on Monday, as Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal struck centuries each to help Sri Lanka avoid a follow on. However, it was following their dismissal, the Sri Lankan batsmen started to collapse like a pile of cards, as they are reeling at 356 for the loss of nine wickets at stumps, while trailing by 180 runs. the inability of the incoming middle-order or tail-ender batsmen to hold the innings has certainly irked Mathews.

On Sri Lanka’s collapse in post-tea session on Day 3

“Little bit disappointed the way we ended up. We could have had a few more wickets in hand, specially going in to Tuesday. It was a good wicket, yes there was the odd ball taking turn but no real danger. Obviously it will start turning a little more as we go into the fourth and fifth days. They [India] kept at it and we had to work extremely hard to get the runs. We made the bowlers work very hard,” said Mathews during the post-day press conference.

“It was not the most fluent innings, but I had to work extremely hard. Had a bit of luck as well, end of the day, runs matter. “I knew I was hitting the ball well, it’s just that I was disappointed at not converting my starts. Once I got in, I told himself here that I’ll carry on. As cricketers and as batsmen, you’re always under pressure. There’s no game where I haven’t been under pressure. I like those challenges, you have go out there and enjoy yourself.”
