6.09pm That will be stumps on this wicketless fourth day. What an extraordinary day for Sri Lanka! They have ground New Zealand into the dust, staving off their attack for an entire day without losing a wicket. Nevermind the surface: this has been a stellar effort and nothing can take away from it.

New Zealand tried their best. Wagner bent his back without any luck. His usually menacing bouncers were kept out with minimal fuss on a slow surface. Equally memorable from today's play were the celebrations of Mathews after reaching his century - marking the occasion with push-ups and a flex of his biceps, almost as it to say to the selectors that he has plenty left in the tank.

Anyway on that note, that will be a wrap of this classic, grinding, attritional day of Test cricket. There is a 90 percent chance of rain tomorrow, but irrespective of how the weather plays out, Sri Lanka have an excellent chance of holding onto a draw. Will have been some effort if and when they get there. We'll catch you then. For now, it's goodbye from Shashank and myself. Thanks for your company and comments.
