December 05, 2017  16:44


SL 31-3 (16 ovs); Target to win: 410 | Scorecard


The umpires call for stumps after checking on the light meter as Sri Lanka finish Day 4 on 31 for three in 16 overs, still needing another 379 runs for victory on the fifth and final day.

Dhananjaya de Silva is unbeaten on 13 with Angelo Mathews at the other end.

Jadeja bowled a good spell and was rewarded for his persistence with two wickets in the final over of the day. Shami was too to handle for opener Sadeera as he ended up gloving a bouncer to the gully fielder.

Earlier, India declared their second innings on 246 for five, setting Sri Lanka 410 for victory.

Shikhar Dhawan (67) and Virat Kohli (50) and Rohit Sharma (50 not out) hit half-centuries before they declared in the post-tea session.

Sri Lanka were bowled out for 373 in their first innings in the morning session with Ishant taking the final wicket, that of Dinesh Chandimal, who perished for a career-best 164.
