Sri Lanka have been bowled out for 313, setting Pakistan a daunting 377 run victory target on day four of the third and final test currently underway at the Pallekelle International Cricket stadium.

Sri Lanka skipper Angelo Mathews reached his fifth test century on day four against Pakistan. Mathews’s previous test tons were against Australia, Pakistan and twice against England.

This is incidentally his second test ton at home, which he reached in 221 balls. The Lankan skipper walked out to bat when his team was in danger at 35 for 3.

Earlier in the day, Dinesh Chandimal was dismissed for lbw to the bowling of Imran Kahn, for 67 runs. He and Mathews put on a 6th wicket partnership of 117 runs. The three match series is currently leveled at 1-1.
