2nd Test: Sri Lanka v India at Colombo PSS, Aug 3-7, 2010

Colombo, Day 5: India beat Sri Lanka in third Test to level series IND-SRL:1-1(3)

India beat Sri Lanka by five wickets in the third and final test to level the series 1-1 at P.Sara Oval on Saturday. VVS Laxman top scored with an unbeaten 103 in India's chase of 257 and shared a crucial 109-run, fifth-wicket partnership with Sachin Tendulkar to set up the victory. Resuming on 53 for three, India lost an early wicket on day five when nightwatchman Ishant Sharma was caught at midwicket off Suraj Randiv for four. That was the only wicket India lost in that session as VVS Laxman and Sachin Tendulkar (54) carried India to lunch with 145 for four in 38 overs, still needing another 112 runs for victory.
Colombo, Day 5: India 436 (Sehwag 109, Raina 62, Randiv 4-80) and 258/ 5 (Laxman 103*, Tendulkar 54, Randiv 5-82) beat Sri Lanka 425 (Samaraweera 137*, Sangakkara 75, Ojha 4-115) and 267 (Samaraweera 83, Mendis 78) by five wickets

Colombo, Day 4: Randiv gives Lanka upper hand

Suraj Randiv picked up three top-order Indian wickets - after Ajantha Mendis and Thilan Samaraweera's exploits with the bat - to put Sri Lanka in a favourable position at stumps on day 4. After frustrating the Indian bowlers for a long time, Sri Lanka were finally dismissed for 267 runs in their second innings, in post tea session on the fourth day of the third and final cricket Test against India in Colombo.At the close of the day's play, Sachin Tendulkar on 11 and night watchman Ishant Sharma on two were in the middle. India require another 204 runs to win the Test and level the series 1-0.
Colombo, Day 4: India 436 and 53/3 (Vijay 27, Randiv 3-20) need another 204 to beat Sri Lanka 425 and 267 (Samaraweera 83, Mendis 78)

Colombo, Day 3: Sehwag grabs 2 wickets as Sri Lanka under pressure‎

Virender Sehwag took two wickets to put Sri Lanka under pressure on 45-2 in its second innings against India at stumps on the third day of the third Test. The hosts quickly overcame an 11-run first-innings lead to India, which was dismissed for 436, but by the end of Thursday led by only 34 with eight wickets in hand on a P. Sara Oval pitch helping the spinners with sharp turn and bounce.Earlier, Sehwag's quickfire century and some resolute batting by the tailenders helped India post 436 in their first innings and take a slender 11-run lead.
Sehwag slammed 109 from 105 balls, inclusive of 19 boundaries, before he was caught at cover off Suraj Randiv, who took four for 80. For India, Suresh Raina (62) and VVS Laxman also scored vital half-centuries (56), putting on 105 runs for the fifth wicket. Abhimanyu Mithun and Amit Mishra made sure India took the lead, scoring 46 and 40 respectively.
Colombo, Day 3: Sri Lanka 425 (Samaraweera 137, Sangakkara 75, Ojha 4-115, Ishant 3-72) and 45/2 (Sehwag 2-11) lead India 436 (Sehwag 109, Raina 62, Laxman 56, Randiv 4-80) by 34

Colombo, Day 2: Virender Sehwag leads India's reply‎

Virender Sehwag led India's bold reply to Sri Lanka's first innings of 425 with an unbeaten 97, with 17 fours, on the second day of the third and final test as India reached 180 for two. Sachin Tendulkar, making a record 169th test appearance, is unbeaten on 40. Earlier, Thilan Samaraweera eased to a 12th test hundred and was unbeaten on 137 when Sri Lanka's final wicket fell. Sri Lanka lost their last four wickets for 44 runs after lunch with spinner Pragyan Ojha taking 4-115.
Colombo, Day 2: India 180/2 (Sehwag 97*, Tendulkar 40*) trail Sri Lanka 425 (Samaraweera 137, Sangakkara 75, Ojha 4-115, Ishant 3-72) by 245 runs

Colombo, Day 1: Sri Lanka takes advantage‎

A good opening day in the third test for hosts Sri Lanka has put them in the box seat in their series against India.
Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara has top-scored with 75 to lead the hosts to 293-4 after day one of the third test against India in Colombo. Mahela Jayawardene made 56 and Thilan Samaraweera remains unbeaten on 65 for the home side. Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha was the pick of the Indian bowlers, collecting two for 78.
Sri Lanka need only a draw to clinch the three test series 1-nil.
