NEW DELHI: Starting the day at 31 for three, Sri Lanka faced an uphill task ahead on day five in order to save the third and the final Test at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi. And it was an ominous start for the visitors as they lost first innings centurion Angelo Mathews to Ravindra Jadeja in the sixth over of the day, when the left-armer tossed up a wide one and Mathews tentatively prodded at that, only managing an edge. Ajinkya Rahane took a sharp catch at slips.
31 overs were bowled in the session with SL losing just one wicket and scoring 88 runs with Dhanajaya taking nine boundaries en route to his third Test fifty. Chandimal also started off tentatively with Jadeja finding enough purchase from the track. However, Ashwin looked lackluster and the lack of support for Jadeja meant that pressure was built from only one side.
