Commentary

2.55pm All over. Stumps are drawn early in Pallekele. Depressing stuff all round. And to think we have one more day of this ahead of us. Join us at 9.45am tomorrow and we'll take it from there. On your way out, add @ESPNcricinfo to your twitter feed for cricket updates faster than light. Plenty of football action coming up this weekend and you can find it all on ESPNsoccernet. This is Nitin Sundar, signing off amidst the deluge. Cheers.

1.45pm Andrew Fernando: "The crowd is emptying slowly. What a disappointment for them. Heavy drizzle coming down now. Likely to be the status quo for the next couple of hours."

1.09pm It's sheeting down now. Not looking good, friends.

12.51pm The covers come back on. Dilshan is chuffed - he doesn't want a wet pitch, considering he may be facing soon. This is beyond frustration. This is.. I am out of words. Rain stops play again, meanwhile here is Andrew Fernando's lunch bulletin.

Lakmal to Roach, no run, this one slides down the leg side, Roach thinks of glancing it along the ground but that's too far down the leg side.

Drizzle is back on.

Lakmal to Benn, 3 runs, that's timed well. Over-pitched on middle and off, Benn swings across the line through midwicket and it scurries off the meat of the bat. Easy three.

Lakmal to Benn, no run, bouncer outside off, angling across as Benn looks to swivel pull. Makes no contact.

END OF OVER:
103 | (maiden) | WI: 300/8

Herath to Roach, no run, stifled appeal as Roach gets some pad on it with his forward press. Safe though

Herath to Roach, no run, straightens from middle and leg, defended sedately down the pitch

Herath to Roach, no run, comes in with the arm from off stump, Roach's forward defensive covers it easily
