MATCH NOTES
General
  • MS Atapattu 223: Highest Test score (prev. 108 v India at Mohali, 1997-98). Highest Test score by any batsman at the Asgiriya ground (prev. 143, DW Hookes for Australia, 1982/83).
  • Start of play was delayed 45 minutes on Day Three due to wet outfield, resulting from heavy overnight rain.
  • M Muralitharan's match figures of 12 for 117 are the best by any Sri Lankan bowler in Test history.
