Last Wicket: A Mishra 15(36)

Over 50.0  

Angelo Mathews: What an absolute turnaround it was. I am speechless. It was a poor performance from the batting unit in the first innings, but Chandimal was brilliant with the bat in the second innings. Rangana was outstanding with the ball as well. We just thought we should give our best shot. The spinners were outstanding. They have three spinners and the wicket was turning a lot, so we had to be aggressive. My rib is fine.

Virat Kohli: We got no one to blame, but ourselves. Credit to Angelo (Mathews) and his team for playing good cricket today. We failed to capitalise after taking the first five wickets and Sri Lanka dominated from there. One bad session and things can turnaround quickly. Credit to Hearth for the way he bowled, he's a world-class bowler. The pitch behaved strangely. Angelo chose to bat, I would have done the same, but the ball started spinning on the first day, Ashwin came into the game. But it played really nicely for us in the second innings. We thought the wicket would be more difficult to bat, but credit to the way Chandimal and the rest batted. They really kept Sri Lanka in the hunt
