    COMMENTARY

    This has been an epic Test series for the hosts and the whole country will be celebrating with them. However, the disappointed Aussies will have a chance to fight back in the ODI series. The Islanders will still hold the advantage of familiar conditions but a revamped Australia will be keen to make their comeback. Do join us on the 21st of August at 1430 IST as we dive into the fast-paced action to follow! Until then... Cheers and take care!
    Victorious Sri Lankan captain, ANGELO MATHEWS says that it is a fantastic moment to stage a comeback from 26/5. (On the final Test match) Dhananjaya de Silva and Dinesh Chandimal got them through the 2nd and 3rd sessions and, of course, Rangana Herath was fantastic for his side. He thanks everyone for their help - the selectors, support staff, team and most importantly, the fans. He says that the Australians gave them a hard fight even if it didn't go their way and wishes them the very best for the ODI series.
    Australian captain, STEVEN SMITH says that he had a tough series. For him, Sri Lanka played very well and his team was disappointed to lose. He adds that Sri Lanka got off to a good start and it was all downhill from there for his side. (On the ODI series) For him, it is a different format and new people will come in to his team. He adds that it is going to be more competitive. (On the fans that came to support Australia) He apologizes profusely for the team's performance and hopes the ODI series will be better.
    Man of the Match and Series, RANGANA HERATH says that hard work pays off and one is rewarded for it. He says his experiences have made him a better player and has taught him a lot. (About the challenges the team has faced) They have had a tough seven or eight months but they stayed together and wanted to continue their performance from the first Test. (On not playing in the ODI series) He says that it is good to get a break and spend time with family. (On his future) He looks at things series-by-series but hopes to play in the next one.
    Rangana Herath has been awarded as the Man of the Match.
    Earlier in the match, both the sides showed stomach to fight as both the teams had centurions, bowlers with 5-wicket hauls but in the end it was Sri Lanka who were worthy for the title. For Sri Lanka, the champions were Dinesh Chandimal, Dhananjaya de Silva, Kaushal Silva and Rangana Herath. It was pure team work to win a famous series here. Australia have failed once again to chase a target of 250-plus in Asia, a record they would like to change. Stay tuned for the presentation...
    From 100/ 2 to be bowled out on 160 shows the tumble of the Australian side and the brilliance of the Sri Lankan bowling. The hosts used only three bowlers in this innings to send the Kangaroos packing. With this loss, they have now lost their No.1 Test ranking too. For Australia, David Warner was the lone warrior with his 21st Test fifty as others failed to contribute.
    Sri Lanka win by 163 runs and have also won the series 3-0 and it is a whitewash. What a great turnaround by the hosts in this match after being 26/5 on day 1. What a game of cricket after putting a target of 324 for the tourists. The hosts didn't bowl well in the first session as the Aussies really negotiated well in the first session. It was Dilruwan Perera who took the valued wicket of Shaun Marsh just at the stroke of lunch. And after that, it was all about Rangana Herath. The vintage bowler went on to register his 26th Test 5-fer and completed 13 wickets in this match with his magical arm.
    44.1
    Rangana Herath to Nathan Lyon, out, OUT! HERATH COMPLETES THE WHITEWASH! The crowd goes wild when their favourite reappears. He takes his short run up and lands it on middle and off. Lyon looks to sweep it yet again, misses and the ball goes on to rap his pads. The fielding side scream their appeal, the umpire raises his finger and pandemonium ensues. Herath has already pulled a stump and the fielders meet in the middle. Lyon is curious and decides to take the review but the celebrations are already underway. The ball is a fair one and goes on to hit the pads plumb in front of the stumps. That spells the end for Australia as SRI LANKA WIN THIS MATCH BY 163 RUNS AND TAKE THE SERIES 3-0!

    Welcome to the afternoon session. DAVID WARNER and STEVEN SMITH to bat and DILRUWAN PERERA will finish his over.
    ... Day 5, session 2 ...
    From the moment Australia came out to bat, however, the tables were turned and they were all over the Lankans this time. The pair of Marsh and Warner came out swinging, setting up a 77-run stand. Moments before lunch, however, Sri Lanka made a breakthrough. Marsh was caught by Mendis at forward short leg to end the session on a very interesting note. With 247 to win and 61.2 overs minimum remaining, things are poised at a very delicate stage. Join us at 1240 IST for what promises to be another great session.
    What a morning session it has been! If this keeps up, then this day looks to be very eventful indeed. Sri Lanka were true to their game plan, scoring quickly to set an imposing target of 324. Australia, meanwhile, played against the clock, taking frequent drinks breaks and slowing down play.
    21.4
    Dilruwan Perera to Shaun Marsh, out, OUT! Perera draws the first blood! Tossed up ball on middle and leg, Marsh looks to defend it to the leg side but the ball hurries on to him and it goes off his gloves. Mendis at FSL gets his hands on it but cannot hold it as he gobbles it first and takes it in his second attempt. What a catch and a crucial wicket at the stroke of lunch. Australia are one down for 77. Marsh cannot believe it as he has thrown away his wicket. Though, the umpire checks it upstairs if the ball hits Mendis' helmet before being caught and it looks all fine. The opening stand has been broken and Sri Lanka will have something to take from this session. With that the umpire calls for LUNCH ON DAY 5!
    The umpire refers it upstairs to see if it was a clean catch.

    COMMENTARY

    End of over

    SL 347/8 (99.3 Ovs)

    Now Australia would look to redeem themselves with the bat. They have made a couple of changes to their team and will hope that it pays off. Stay tuned as we begin with second innings in a short while.
    What a comeback it was by Sri Lanka! Centuries from Dhananjaya de Silva and Dinesh Chandimal did the revival job and took them to a strong position. Starc again proved lethal to the home side as he picked his 7th fifer. Herath had to depart unfortunately after getting hurt off Hazlewood's delivery. Surprisingly, Australia were poor in the field with their skipper dropping two decent chances.
    141.1
    Mitchell Starc to Suranga Lakmal, out, OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! Length delivery outside off, Lakmal tries to defend but gets a thick outside edge. The ball goes towards gully where Mitchell Marsh takes a safe catch. Yet another 5-wicket haul for Mitchell Starc, his 7th in Tests. Superb bowling by the pacer, he's on a roll. His last three innings - 5/63, 6/50, 5/44. SRI LANKA FINISH ON 355!

    ... DAY 2, SESSION 2 ...
    Dinesh Chandimal, however, kept one end tightly and reached his first Test century against Australia. Soon after that he offered a chance to the visiting team but Steven Smith failed to grab the catch at first slip. Sri Lanka are just one run short of the 300-run mark and given the way the pitch is behaving, if they manage to add another 50 runs to their total, it will test the Aussies. Do join us in a short while to find out how the afternoon session pans out...
    Another good session of Test cricket! Sri Lanka scored 85 runs in it while Australia managed to pick up a couple of wickets. The hero of Day 1, Dhananjaya de Silva, didn't add much to his overnight score and fell to Lyon, while Dilruwan Perera in an attempt to score quick runs departed cheaply.

    Russel Arnold says that it is nothing different from Day 1, the cracks are evident as usual but the ball hasn't misbehaved yet. There will be a lot of activity near the footmarks of the bowlers. The batsmen will have to trust their defense to succeed and will have to defend by keeping the bat in front of the pad and not besides it. Ends up saying that defending solidly is the key.
    Welcome everyone! After the Sri Lankan collapse of wickets in the first session like dominoes, they went on to make sure they didn't lose any other wicket thanks to the pair of Dinesh Chandimal and Dhananjaya de Silva. Australia will hope that the first session of Day 2 goes the same way as yesterday's and clean up the home side in a hurry. So stay tuned as all the action on Day 2 is about to start in a short while.
    ... DAY 2, SESSION 1 ...
    The visitors will like to go to their hotel, take some rest and then come out fresh tomorrow to bowl and pick up the rest of the Sri Lankan wickets. The current pair of de Silva and Chandimal will look to add on some more runs and take Sri Lanka to a strong position. So, tune in tomorrow at 1000 IST for all the action of Day 2. Till then, take care everyone!
    73 runs were scored in the last session. Dhananjaya de Silva got to his maiden Test century. The young lad made a statement with this unbeaten knock. He was well supported by his vice captain who is still out there with him on 64. The Aussie bowlers faded away in the end but when they were about to make some breakthroughs, their fielders didn't give them the support at crucial times which frustrated them, and that reflected it in their bowling.
    What a turnaround by Sri Lanka. From being 5 down for 26, Chandimal and de Silva added an unbeaten 188 runs for the 6th wicket to ensure that the day gets claimed by Sri Lanka. They saw off the second and the third session without the loss of a single wicket. After starting the day on top, Australia must be very disappointed to walk back in such a position.

    ... DAY 1, SESSION 3... Players are back in the middle. Dinesh Chandimal and Dhananjaya de Silva will take their place in the centre. Mitchell Starc will once again begin the proceedings of a new session.
    The Aussies did bowl well but couldn't pick up any wickets. Two dropped chances will certainly be rued, but those chances could very well be termed as difficult ones. The wicket is evening out and becoming better for batting. The bowlers will have to innovate if they are to break this partnership. The last and final session of the day will be coming up shortly so don't go anywhere.
    A solid comeback from the Lankan side. After reeling on 55/5 at Lunch, Dhananjaya de Silva and Dinesh Chandimal have pulled it back amazingly well. 84 runs have been scored in this session without the loss of a single wicket, although both batsmen were given a reprieve so some luck did go their way. They've stitched a partnership of 115 so far and are looking good, with de Silva making his maiden Test fifty.

    Players are out in the middle. DIMUTH KARUNARATNE and KAUSHAL SILVA will take the place in the centre. MITCHELL STARC will start Day 1's proceedings.
    TOSS - Sri Lanka win the toss and elect to bat. They bring in Suranga Lakmal in place of Vishwa Fernando. Australia on the other hand have made a couple of changes, Moises Henriques and Shaun Marsh replace Usman Khawaja and Joe Burns.
    Russel Arnold starts with saying that the players will feel the heat as the weather is very hot compared to the earlier venues. The pitch is very dry and the cracks are already evident plus the sun shining over the shoulders will widen the cracks. Seamers will be in the game if they bowl wicket to wicket but moreover, it will favour the spinners. Ends up saying that it will all come down to the batsmen's approach of playing spin and the team will have the upper hand in the match if they score around 275-300.
    A warm welcome to everyone! It's the start of the third and final Test of Australia's tour to Sri Lanka which awaits us. It is going to be an excellent day for cricket as the current number one Test side is down under and will look to bounce back to save themselves from the embarrassment of a whitewash. Sri Lanka on the other hand would look to dominate again to gain the bragging rights. Stay tuned as the match will begin in a while.

    End of over

    SL 347/8 (99.3 Ovs)

    It is going to be interesting last few overs of the day. Stay tuned as the third innings is about to begin.
    Sri Lanka would like to complete a whitewash over the visitors and would come out to bat in that fashion.
    Earlier in the innings, Shaun Marsh and Steven Smith went on to make centuries, which got the visitors going as they went on to make a humongous 246-run partnership. They now lead by 24 runs. The home side will firstly have to see off Starc and Co. without losing any wickets and then build up on their start tomorrow. Because it will be difficult for Australia to chase a big total on the 5th day against Herath and company in this sort of form.
    Sri Lanka whizzed through the Australian lower order. Adam Voges departed soon after the Tea break. After that Mitchell Marsh-Peter Nevill stand steadied the Australian ship which helped them go past Sri Lanka's first innings total with the former completing his half-century. Herath once again proved to be the wrecker-in-chief picking up 6 wickets. He was well supported by Dilruwan Perera who picked up 2 wickets.

    Welcome back for the mid-day session. Shaun Marsh and Steven Smith will continue to bat. Dilruwan Perera to start off the proceedings. Here we go...
    ... Day 3, Session 2 ...
    Talking about the hosts and their bowling, they weren't a threat at all. Apart from a dropped catch early in the morning session, they didn't look penetrative enough to create a breakthrough. The spin duo of Herath and Perera was dealt with ease and so was Sandakan. The Sri Lankan side needs to buck up and bowl better after the break to stop the Australian charge. Do join us in a bit for the post-Lunch session.
    The Australian side takes another session in their kitty. From being on 141/1 at the start of day's play to 235/1 at lunch, they are only 120 runs behind the Lankan's total now. Marsh and Smith have certainly converted their starts into centuries and are amidst a record double century stand at the moment. They were determined to play their strokes but were watchful at the same time as well.

    Russel Arnold says just pitching in good areas and hope that the pitch does the magic is not going to work for Sri Lanka. They will have to work harder. It is going to be more of a mental battle for both the sides. Fitness will be one of the important factors as it is a very hot and humid day. He ends up saying that the players will have to fight the demons in their head because they aren't any present on the pitch.
    The hosts will have to pull up their socks with the ball this morning as the Aussies are looking determined and have played spin bowling better. It promises to be yet another cracking day of Test cricket.
    Hello and warm welcome for day 3 of the third Test between Sri Lanka and Australia at Colombo. The visiting side has shown a great comeback on day 2 with a team total of 141/1. The skipper has led from the front with his fifty alongside an able partner in Shaun Marsh who has also scored an unbeaten fifty. The duo is at the crease with a partnership of 120 and will look to go strength to strength to lessen the deficit of 200 plus runs.
    ... Day 3, Session 1 ...
    Australia batted superbly today but then that's past now and they will have to start fresh again tomorrow morning. The deficit is still in excess of 200 and they cannot afford to relax. The Aussies will hope for the current partnership to prosper and bat for as long as possible. Sri Lanka on the other hand will try harder on Day 3 and will wish for more assistance from the pitch. Do join us at 1000 IST for all the action. Cheers!
    Sri Lanka bowled well but have to say that the Australian batsmen batted better. Apart from a few deliveries misbehaving here and there and a couple chances going down, there wasn't much to trouble the Aussies. A lot of credit should be given to Steven Smith and Shaun Marsh for the way they dealt with the Lankan spinners. Also for the first time in this series, Australia have two batsmen scoring fifties in an innings and this has provided them a solid beginning.
    Finally a fightback by Australia with the bat in the series! It didn't start well for them when they lost David Warner cheaply but then the pair of Smith and Marsh batted sensibly against the Sri Lankan spinners to form a partnership. A stand which is worth 120 runs at the moment, only the second 50-plus stand for the visitors in the series.

    ... DAY 3, SESSION 3 ...
    Stay tuned as we have an action packed session to follow as the Sri Lankan bowlers would look to hunt down the Aussie batters. While the latter would looks to fight them back with a spirited performance with the bat which they have lacked this series. Third session to follow...
    Australia came in to bat and was served a juicy full toss first up. But suffered again as they lost Warner within the first few overs. Now, Smith and Marsh are out in the middle and will look to stay as long as possible. Sri Lanka even without their main man Herath out injured produced a break through de Silva and would be overly joyous with the this.
    83 runs scored for the loss of 3 wickets in this session! This session also was dominated by the home side. Post lunch Sri Lanka came in and scored 56 runs with the help from a partnership from Chandimal and Herath. Chandimal fell in the process to up the run rate. As soon as he fell, so did the tail. Herath couldn't complete his batting as he got retired hurt.
