Northampton: Jun 6, 2014

 

Northamptonshire were 146 for five in reply to Sri Lanka’s first innings 558 for eight declared, a deficit of 412, at stumps on the second day of four at Northampton on Friday.

 

Rob Keogh was 26 not out and Matthew Spriegel 11 not out, with Northamptonshire requiring a further 263 runs to avoid the follow-on.

 

Dhammika Prasad had been Sri Lanka’s most successful bowler thus far with two wickets for 29 runs in five overs.

 

This is Sri Lanka’s final match before next week’s first Test against England at Lord’s on Thursday.
