Angelo Mathews was dismissed first ball of the day on the fifth and final day of the second Test between India and Sri Lanka at P Sara Oval, Colombo. Umesh Yadav started the proceedings and struck with his first ball to get the outside edge from the bat of Mathews and KL Rahul took a brilliant catch to set the tone for India. They need seven more wickets. Sri Lanka are 72 for three after 22 overs with Dimuth Karunaratne and Dinesh Chandimal batting for the hosts. Karunaratne has a good second innings average and will be hoping to fight out for a draw for the hosts. It will be interesting to see how Chandimal plays here.

India set Sri Lanka a target of 413 when they declared after scoring 325 runs losing eight wickets. India’s main contribution came from the 140-run stand between Murali Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane. Vijay missed out on his ton while Rahane ensured that he notched up his fourth Test ton to help India build a solid base. The lower order chipped in with handy runs as Tharindu Kaushal and Dhammik Prasad both finished with four wickets each. Sri Lanka were reduced to 72 for 2 at stumps. Kaushal Silva did not last long but it was Kumar Sangakkara whose dismissal led to an emotional breakdown for the Sri Lankan fans as he was out for mere 18 in his final Test innings.
