Sri Lanka continues resistance at tea on Day 5 

After losing the experienced Angelo Mathews early in the day, Sri Lanka’s uphill task of saving the match looked even more daunting. But the pair of Dinesh Chandimal and Dhananajaya saw off the first session and put their heads down to negotiate the second. The duo put on 112-run stand for the fifth wicket in 199 deliveries and even after the departure of the skipper, Dhananjay battled hard to reach his third Test hundred, before walking off just before tea. SL had reached 226 for five, with one more session of play to go.
