Over 103 Sri Lanka 299/5/No

So that's it from us for the Test series. Sri Lanka would be glad with the final 1-0 result, especially after being whitewashed at home by India earlier this year. All the pre-series talks, too, revolved around the hosts steamrolling them. But they have done really well to lose just the solitary game in the series. That's not all from this Sri Lankan tour, though. It is time for the colored-clothing games to take precedent now. The ODI series begins first. Will the tourists put up a good show then? Or will the home side continue their recent domination on the away side? The first game of the series will be played at Dharmashala on the 10th of December, 2017. Join us then at 1130 local time (0600 GMT). We look forward to your company for that game. Till then, adios, take care!
VIRAT KOHLI, the Indian captain is adjudged as the Man of the Match as well as the Man of the Series for his stellar run in the series. He admits that it was a good series for him personally. Adds that he was hitting the ball well and it was a revelation for him that he could play Tests like he does in the limited overs games. When he wasn't the captain of the side, milestones drove him, but now he realizes that it is about the team. He works on things that benefit the team. States that the team looks upon Rohit Sharma as a game changer and someone who can bat in the lower middle order. Is glad that the batsman grabbed his chance in the couple of games that he played in. He is happy with how his batsmen have shaped up and have scored runs. It isn't a satisfying feeling to not bowl out the opposition and finish the game, he adds. Yet he credits the opposition and feels that their batters applied themselves well and sailed to safety. Feels that the pitch also had its role there as it got tired towards the end. Reckons that if they would have got more runs in the first innings things could have been different but quickly adds that this game isn't about ifs. Asserts they need to work on their slip fielding. About not having Rahane in the slip cordon, he feels that since Ajinkya has been fielding at gully since his initial days, the team trusts him there. Adds that position is the most difficult one to perfect your reflexes. Mentions that they have recognized the personnel who will man the slip cordon and will continue to work on that. Feels that it is a welcome break for him. Adds that last time he took rest it was difficult to handle but now his body needs it as the past couple of years have taken a toll on him and he can't play with low energy levels. Ends saying this is a perfect time to rest and be refreshed before the series against South Africa.
Well, this wasn't the presentation. It was Sanjay Manjrekar catching up with the last Sri Lankan pair that was at the crease at the time of the match being called off. Presentation coming up...
Roshen Silva agrees that he was under pressure in the first innings. His aim was to impress the selectors and he thinks he has done that. Adds that the opposition bowlers tough to face and of good quality. His thought process was of attacking the spinners and putting them on the back foot. He had a talk with Dickwella when he walked out to bat and decided that they will play their normal game. About coming good in this innings, he states that it wasn't easy and their batting coach said that if you score runs here the whole world will rate you high. He played on that lines and was confident of his performance as he had done well with the A team and also in First-Class cricket. Ends saying that he wants to do well henceforth and grabs his chance.
So were India a little too over confident after the loss of the two early wickets the previous day? Having bowled out oppositions on previous occasions many a times when being in this position. On another given day they would have wrapped up the Sri Lankan innings by Tea but some solid defense by the latter's saved the match.
The pitch didn't help the Indian spinners on the final day as they didn't get much purchase from it. They picked up the wicket of Mathews early but Dhananjaya de Silva and his middle order stitched up good partnerships to remove all doubts about another collapse. Indian bowlers tried their best were unable to get the better of the Sri Lankan batters. They had their opportunists with a stumping gone begging and Jadeja's extended stride which caused a no ball.
Sri Lanka played well especially the partnership between Angelo Mathews and their skipper Dinesh Chandimal. They never changed the tide towards them but psychologically really changed their approach. India came out with a positive approach in the following day but it really didn't click. They didn't score as quickly as per their liking. They declared their innings and gave Sri Lanka a target of 409 to win. India picked up a couple of wickets at the close of day 4 and would really believe that they could go all the way to win the game from there.
Day 1 belonged to India where we witnessed a big hundred from Vijay and a double hundred from Virat Kohli. India went on to score a massive 536/7 after what we can say was a absurd decision - not because of the playing conditions but because of the environmental conditions. The Sri Lankan players were seen wearing masks while taking the field while few of them were also seen throwing up on the field. They cannot be blamed as the conditions were also not up to the mark. Day 2 was a little more media catching for the wrong reasons.
Sri Lanka would be very pleased with their batting on the last day. They will believe that they have won the game even though the results say likewise. Starting with Dhananjaya de Silva, they believed in themselves and carried on throughout the day.
Dickwella walks down to the non-striker's end. It at first seems that it is some sort of time wasting tactic. Well, hold on! The batsmen are asking the dressing room about calling off the game... And the signal from the dressing room comes in the affirmative! So it has ended in a DRAW! A moral victory for Sri Lanka nevertheless.

BindaasBunty - Maybe bad light could be the reason behind Shami not being brought into the attack. @BindaasBunty - If that is the case, the match would rather be called off than carrying on for no reason.
