Mathews hits century to drive SL forward
December 04, 2017  13:55

SL 253-3 (96 ovs) vs India 536-7d | Scorecard

Shami continues to trouble the batsmen with bouncers as Mathews awkwardly pulls it on the leg side for one and Chandimal clips it square for another run.

India seem to have lost a bit of focus. Chandimal taps it on the off-side and steals a quick single to Dhawan inside the circle at covers to keep the scoreboard ticking.

Ishant comes in to replace Shami as pacers continue from one end, while Ashwin gets ignored yet again.

Jadeja has bowled miserly but has not created enough chances after the lunch interval. He has bowled 33 overs so far and conceded just 53 runs, including 11 maidens.

Ishant bowls a short ball down the leg side as Chandimal glances it fine for a boundary. Two balls later, he steers a wide delivery past point for two runs as Sri Lanka cross the 250-run mark, in the 96th over.
