This one is a Day/Nighter.

Will those crazy Wackies rebound? or will they be Herathed again?

With these two teams, anything can happen. The night factor adds more fizz to the clash.

What the hell is going on? Karunaratne has allegedly scored a century.

Still not lost any wickets. This is clearly just a simulation that's being reported as a match...

Think Lakmal should go down as one of those "better than his stats" bowlers. Not that he's near being a world beater... but definitely better than the bowling average of 45.

5-34!! Fortunately they have 220 to add by virtue of their 1st innings lead.

Given the way this series as gone, Pak are a chance of chasing down 320 to win the Test.

They're likely to fall well short, but this is some partnership between Shafiq and Sarfaraz. Must say that this has been a rather enjoyable series, turgid batting notwithstanding.

Closer already than expected, and another Test moving towards a decision on day 5 (would already be a draw under the planned shift to 4 days).

Can the last 5 wickets scrape 119 runs together? I'm going for Pakistan here, although I'm superstitiously concerned that my support added onto JGKs big woof two days ago dooms them irretrievably.

What a fantastic turnaround and series. Chandimal definitely has to stay on as captain. Shown more in 2 matches than Mathews did in 2 years.

Collapses in each of their second innings is worrisome, but they at least showed that they could bat for long periods in each of the first innings.

Congrats to the Lankans.

With the lowest winning target setting score (3rd innings) since 1902.
