December 04, 2017  11:31

SL 192-3 (65 ovs) vs India 536-7d | Scorecard

Mathews paddles Ashwin fine on the leg side for a four to continue his positive approach against the off-spinner, whom he attacked on Day 2.

Jadeja from the other end as the pacers get a well deserved rest with lunch around the corner.

He keeps it simple, bowling it full and on the stumps as Chandimal defends the over.

Mathews looks to glance Ashwin on the leg side but there is some extra bounce and the right-hander somehow manages to evade the fielder leg gully, for a single.

Jadeja testing Mathews's patience with a few dot balls before the Sri Lankan comes down and has a wild swing but is lucky that it falls safely on the off-side.

Chandimal seems to have already shut shop as he plays out a quiet over from Ashwin.

Mathews is nearly done in by Jadeja as the spinner gets one to turn and bounce and is hit on the gloves but it falls safely.

Mathews takes one to take his score to 90 before Chandimal defends the last two balls to end the morning session.
