A dramatic period of play after tea saw India get bowled out for 274, adding 40 runs after tea with Ravichandran Ashwin scoring 58. Sri Lanka will now have to chase a record 386 to win the third Test at Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC), Colombo.. However, the real action came just before the final wicket fell, with Ishant Sharma and Dhammika Prasad being involved in a tense few minutes of play. Dhammika bowled bouncer after bouncer, while Ishant evaded them and taunted him. The clash saw certain Sri Lankan fielders get involved as well, while Ashwin himself had words with the umpire. The tense eight-ball over culminated in Ashwin’s wicket, which was probably for the best. India will feel they have a massive chance of winning the match and thereby winning a series in Sri Lanka for the first time since 1993.
