commentary

Both skippers walk out, awkwardly to share the trophy. It's one of those times you just don't know how happy to feel. But then it's been one of those pleasantly surprising tours - one you expect to get bored with, only for the contest to be so damn equal. That's all we have for you from out here .. this is Vineet Anantharaman signing off on behalf of Sriram AS, Rishi Roy, Varun Dikshit and our scorer Shashikant Singh. Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did in bringing it to you. Ta ta!!

Shane Dowrich | MoS: Good performances right through the series, but it would have been good to sign off with a win. Credit to the Sri Lankans, they bowled really well to pull it back. This gives me a lot of confidence going forward and I'll look to take that into the next series which is starting shortly. As I said, their bowlers really took it away from us in the second innings. I have been struggling with an injury to my back, but I have a week for rehabilitation.

Suranga Lakmal | Winning skipper: I am very happy, my first Test match as a captain and it is a good opportunity to lead. Three fast bowlers and a spinner did well and the entire team worked very hard right through the series.

Jason Holder | Losing skipper | MoM: Obviously not the ending we were looking for. Credit to Sri Lanka, they played an outstanding game last night. Their opening bowlers Lakmal and Kumara pushed us back but we just did not have enough runs in the second innings. It put our bowlers too under pressure to come back. But still we should be proud of the way we fought. I think we lost in the second innings with our batting performance, we just didn't put enough runs on the board. Even when we gave them 140-odd we thought we were in the game and our new ball bowlers too picked up early wickets. We missed a few chances in the field, and no-balls are an area we need to improve on. But again, the second innings batting performance let us down. It has been a tough Test match and a tough Test series for me personally, but we have to turn it around quickly between this series and the one against Bangladesh coming up next week. Lots of positives - Shannon Gabriel bowled brilliantly, Shane Dowrich too. Roach needs to be mentioned too. But we needed more people to stand up. A few good top-order partnerships too should put us in good stead.

The first two days were more like cricket in the rain breaks. And that cricket too meant mostly wickets. But the Windies turned it around snatching a huge 50-run lead in the context. But the Lankans made the twist hairpin bend like with the new ball under lights to skittle the batsmen out for 93. And then this partnership, killing any suspense there could be .. umm, we've had enough. Stick around for the 'official' presentations.

Chandika Hathurusingha, Sri Lankan coach: Really great feeling for the boys. Lot of ups and downs in the series, so to come back and level the series is a great feeling. We were under pressure from the start, I felt Jason led them really well and we responded really well. We won the match in the second innings when we took their 7 wickets for just 50 odd runs. Suranga had a talk with the boys before the start of the innings, and that worked. He led from the front, that spell in the second innings proved to be decisive. This is a young team without our senior players. This will give young players a lot of confidence. We will feel really confident after this victory. Kusal Mendis is an outstanding player. We made him bat at three different positions and he responded really well. He is a great player, one for the future.

Dilruwan Perera: Really happy to finish the game like this. We thought if we could bat longer, we could achieve the target. We knew the wicket was a little uneven so it would be hard, and if we could bat positively, we could get the runs. We (Kusal and I) both play for the same club and we know each other. We managed to pile up the runs slowly. And this is the first time I've batted this way, so it was pretty hard for us, and I'm happy we managed to achieve it. I expected the seamers to do the job but when I am given the ball, I look to take wickets. He (Lakmal) has good experience of leadership and has won a domestic event as captain, so congratulations to him.

15:53 local: Injuries, bans, more injuries - Mathews, Gamage, Herath, Chandimal - but Sri Lanka have unleashed that defiant character of theirs. They needed to win to draw the spoils, and the two Pereras did it in style. Kusal, after almost ruling himself out with his suicidal dive into the ad hoardings at the boundary, returned with a counter-attacking blitz. And Dilruwan hung around, played many, missed many more, but hung around. When Mendis fell in the first over, it required the West Indians only one more wicket to get into the tail. Not to be. Have a read, interviews lined up.

Miguel Cummins [4.0-1-12-0] is back into the attack

Gabriel to Dilruwan Perera, no run, more evidence of the two-paced nature of this track. This length ball, scooted low after hitting the deck. Makes life difficult for Dilruwan Perera, who tried to shift his weight down but in vain. Inches away from kissing the off-stump

27.1
4

Holder to Kusal Mendis, out Lbw!! Mendis is pinned in front. Up goes the finger and up goes Mendis's hand with the 'T' sign. Review taken. Let's go through the process. Holder has his foot behind the line. UltraEdge shows that it has missed the bat by some margin. What's HawkEye saying? Three reds. Marching orders has been passed to Mendis. All hail the messiah - Jason Holder. Fifer for the skipper, his second in Tests. What a fabulous start for Windies, nipping out the dangerous Kusal Mendis in the very first over of the day. It was slightly fuller, tailed in sharply and didn't bounce much as well. The batsman made a blunder by staying back to which he had to be forward. The Dukes skids on, raps him flush on the back leg and is caught plumb in front. Ian Gould's finger went up straightaway, Mendis challenged the call but in vain. The HawkEye showed that it was crashing onto the off-pole. Kusal Mendis lbw b Holder 25(44) [4s-4]

Holder to Kusal Mendis, THAT'S OUT!! Lbw!!

0
Holder to Kusal Mendis, no run, begins with a harmless back of a length delivery outside off, Mendis realizes he needs to hang back in his crease to bunt it into the off-side

Almost set for the start of what could also be the final session of the Test. Kusal Mendis and Dilruwan Perera to face the music again. Bright sunshine. Looks all bright for the hosts. Jason Holder is ready with the pink cherry. Two slips and a gully bracing up to prey on any uncertainty from Mendis.

Thilan Samaraweera, Sri Lanka's batting coach: I think the pitch is a bit challenging because we are playing for four hours under lights and it is a bit two-paced. But we have to credit the bowlers from both sides for the way they have bowled. As a batsman you have to control only what you can and not worry about what happens from the other end. You have to score runs on loose balls and at the end of the day what matters is how many runs you score. The biggest thing is that we can't think about the outcome, because all we need to do is get two partnerships, however difficult it may be. The good thing is that Kusal Perera is fit, he did some throwdowns and is looking good. They outplayed us in the first game, the second game was even and I am a bit disappointed about our middle-order in this game. But we were brilliant in the way we fought back.

Not all is lost for Sri Lanka yet, they need to believe. They have the talented Kusal Mendis and experienced Dilruwan Perera still at the crease. Some sensible batting from the duo should help them get over the line; and also, Kusal Perera, who injuried himself crashing into the ad hoardings, will be available to bat if required which should spur them. Although, the task in front of them is extremely tough, especially with the pitch cracking up every minute. Plenty at stake then. Should be an exciting day. Live action coming up in a bit.

Day 3: Hello. Morning all. Are you ready, are you ready for this? Are you hanging on the edge of your seat? A juicy pitch, a series to win/save, a target that will barely get any less tricky even as it shrinks. Here's the equation: Sri Lanka need 63 runs, Windies need five wickets. Three results are possible, a draw is out of the question. You can take your fight of the Century, this is the sort of bout Test cricket fans want to see. It was bowlers' day out yesterday with as many as 19 wickets snapped up by the pacers. Having reduced the visitors to 81/5, Windies enter Day 3 as the overwhelming favourites to seal series.

****

Now then, Sri Lanka need to ensure they don't do what Gunathilaka or Dickwella did to get out. They now have a not-so-new ball and good hot afternoon batting conditions. The Windies have to ensure they take their catches, and try keeping that bowling foot behind certain lines. Finishes are rarely this close as tomorrow promises to be, with a series on the line too. Do tune in, ta ta!!

Kemar Roach: We're definitely into the game today. Not ideal, what happened with the bat today. But under lights, if we just landed it in the right areas, we knew it'll be hard for the SL batsmen so we kept hitting our lengths consistently. The pink ball's seam is hard to pick up so it was hard for them as well, so we tried to bowl as full as possible, and make them play as much as possible. I would love a promotion (about his batting). It's coming off with the bat and I'm happy with that. Holder led from the front as skipper, and he's up for it and he really wants to win the game. We gotta come here tomorrow morning and give it our best shot.

And stumps -- 22:34 local: -- Things couldn't have been set better. It's followed a pattern, just when a side threatens to take things away, trust the other to claw back. The one day when it doesn't rain, it rains wickets. 20 wickets in the extended day, with Holder claiming eight, knocking the likes of Sobers and Walsh out to claim the best figures by a Windies' skipper in the Caribbean. That can't take anything from the effort the Lankan bowlers put in too, skittling out Windies cheaply after giving out a vital 50-run lead. What could come back to haunt them though is the ninth-wicket stand they allowed to prosper between Cummins and Roach. Talking about Roach, here he is, talking ..

Holder to Dickwella, out Bowled!! Through him. Oh Dickwella what were you thinking? This one is full, angling into the stumps and he tries to whip against the line. Ends up playing all around, lets the ball sneak in through the swishy bat and the pad and make an absolute mess of the stumps. Quite the last thing Sri Lanka needed at this stage, but try telling that to Holder, who's pumped, jumping, celebrating. Dickwella b Holder 6(15) [4s-1]

Holder to Dickwella, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!

16.3
0
Holder to Kusal Mendis, no run, has that been put down or is it a case of bump ball? Oh, tell you what. It's a chance for Windies that has been shelled by Shai Hope. Second drop of the innings and this should hurt Windies. With not enough runs on the board, you cannot afford to drop catches like these. Very full outside off, Mendis jams his bat at it, gets a faint edge and it goes low to Hope's right. Dived across sticking his right glove but fails to cling onto the offering
16.2

Holder to Kusal Mendis, FOUR, short at the body and Mendis deals it disdainfully. Not enough spice to trouble him, gets back and twirls his wrists to place the pull along the ground in front of square on the on-side

Holder to Dickwella, no run, phew. Nearly sneaked through Dickwella's defences. This length delivery from round the wicket, shoots low and skids off the deck putting Dickwella in a spot of bother. Tried to bring his body weight down, but the low bounce defeated him. Rolls to the keeper

Niroshan Dickwella, left handed bat, comes to the crease

Holder to Roshen Silva, out Caught by Devon Smith!! Edged and taken. Holder is turning it on for Windies. Sri Lanka are on the verge of another collapse. Short of a length outside off and moving just a bit after pitching. Roshen Silva with an ill-advised flirt, hanging his bat out to dry. Geninue outside edge is induced and flew straight to Devon Smith at second slip. Third wicket for Holder and seventh in the Test so far. Brilliant! Roshen Silva c Devon Smith b Holder 1(7)

Holder to Roshen Silva, no run, another shout from Holder and co. Umpire Ian Gould shakes his head. This length delivery, deviates off the pitch and opens up Roshen Silva like a bottle of can. Plays down the wrong line and raps him on the back thigh before nestling into the keeper's glove

Miguel Cummins to Kusal Mendis, no run, Windies go up for a caught-behind, Cummins is pretty confident. They have a chat, Holder joins in and they take the review. Front foot is fine. Woah! One of the poorest reviews you'll ever see. There is a day-light between bat and ball. "Horrible review" terms Daren Ganga on air as well. On a shortish length outside off, climbed sharply outside off. Mendis with a gentle feel for the ball but missed it by a long way

Holder to de Silva, out Bowled!! Boooom! Off-stump goes for a cardio-training. Holder with the destruction, continues his dream run in this Test. Wonderful delivery, tad shorter than the previous delivery. Swung back in menacingly as de Silva without covering for the late zip and movement, leaves it all alone. The pink cherry tails back in and shatters the off-stump. Holder is ecstatic, so does the Kensington Oval crowd. de Silva doesn't add much to the tally despite the lifeline granted to him earlier. Sri Lanka quaking a bit in pursuit of 144. de Silva b Holder 17(29) [4s-4]

Holder to de Silva, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!

Miguel Cummins to Kusal Mendis, FOUR, every run for Sri Lanka from here is gold. They would be happy to take however it comes. Good length delivery, nipping across the right-hander: Mendis with a defensive poke with hard hands, outside edge is produced and it flies past a teasing third slip fielder to the third man fence

Miguel Cummins to Kusal Mendis, 2 runs, back of a length outside off, shuffle across, and a dying edge through gully towards square third man for a brace. Some lousy and lazy work from Bishoo in the deep, and they manage to scamper across for two. Sloppy

Holder to Gunathilaka, out Caught by Devendra Bishoo! Holder is on a hat-trick! Perhaps the most convoluted hat-trick ball after Merv Hughes many years ago and Jermaine Lawson against Australia in 2003. A short one outside off, Gunathilaka made the cardinal sin of trying to drag it into the on-side with a pull, but that's what the round the wicket angle does. Gets a top-edge and it goes high into the night sky. Bishoo back-pedals and manages to take it over his head. The pink marshmallow must have great contrast with the night sky. Gunathilaka c Devendra Bishoo b Holder 21(30) [4s-4]

Holder to Gunathilaka, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

It's out for sure, but they're waiting for the no-ball check. Nope, comfortably behind.

Jason Holder, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack

Roach to Udawatte, out Lbw!! Roach draws first blood. This one nipped back in sharply. Udawatte did not expect the sharp movement and he was pinned to the crease. Ball raps him on the pads. Umpire Ian Gould had no hesitation in raising his finger. Udawatte challenges the decision of umpire but was proved wrong within a minute. Udawatte lbw b Roach 0(6)

Roach to Udawatte, THAT'S OUT!! Lbw!!

Review time: Udawatte was almost walking off but he makes an eye contact with his partner and decides to take a review. No-ball-check. Fair delivery. No bat involved confirms ultraedge. Impact is in line and it is hitting the stumps. Three reds means Udawatte will have to depart. They also lose the review.
