India vs Sri Lanka 3rd Test Day 5 Live Cricket Score ad Updates:
1035 hrs IST: Chandimal and Dhananjaya have Sri Lanka moving. Gingerly. Slowly. But that would be the objective to be fair.
0957 hrs IST: Oh.. that one was a no ball from Jadeja. He had overstepped but Joel Wilson failed to spot that. India wouldn’t mind. As it shows on the big screen, crowd lets out a little cheer
0955 hrs IST: Amid all talk of India letting chance go in the slips, worth pointing out when they do hold on – like Rahane there. One of the best slip fielders in the side and he provides an example of that. Takes a sharp catch after moving to his right. That was travelling after taking the edge and he made it look so easy
0950 hrs IST: GONE! Angelo Mathews departs and Ravindra Jadeja picks his third of the inning. That’s the big wicket right there. Gets the ball to pitch outside off, it spins away from him and Mathews expects it to maintain its line. Takes the outside edge and taken by Rahane at first slip.
0930 hrs IST: Right here we go. Mathews and de Silva walk down to the middle for the fifth day’s play. Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja share the ball…
0915 hrs IST: Pitch report: It looks good for a Day 5 pitch, there are some footmarks which can be exploited by Ashwin and Co. It is still a very good batting surface. Play each ball on its merits, do not plan too far ahead, suggest Sunil Gavaskar and Russel Arnold
0900 hrs IST: Hello and good morning in our live coverage of the India-Sri Lanka Test series. We’ve reached the last day of the Test series and India have a real chance of making it 2-0 today and rounding off the domestic season in the longest format with yet another series win. Unless protagonists from the first innings – Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Mathews produce something similar.
