Dilruwan Perera to Abid Ali. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Perera. Lunch is called on the final day. The morning started with Dhananjaya getting through to his sixth century before Sri Lanka made a quick breakthrough. Ever since then though batting has looked easy and Abid Ali along with Azhar Ali have picked off the runs at will. Probably will be more of the same after lunch before the two captains decide to shake hands and call it a draw.
