When the Sri Lankan top orders came into bat it seemed that are fully prepared and ready for any challenge put forward to them, when the match began it seemed the Xerox copy of the first innings or we can say the wickets were falling even at a faster rate.


The top three batsmen of the Sri Lankan team contributed just 11 runs for their team. Then came in the magical batsmen of today’s match and the heartthrob of Sri Lankan team Kusal Mendis and scored a tremendous 169* and is still fighting for his team to get a strong grip in the match against the extremely talented and proven Australian team.


Sri Lanka is leading the match with 196 runs with 4 wickets remaining and Kusal Mendis on the crease is always going to be beneficial for the team.
If we go through the score card we won’t find any interesting knocks on the board from any side except Kusal Mendis and 2nd innings of Austalian batting to spare.


We hope to see some lively action packed performances in the coming 4th & 5th day of the match.
