The third and final Test match of the series between India and Sri Lanka ended in a draw after a gritty effort by the visitors on the fifth day. Resuming the day at 31/3, Sri Lanka needed to bat the day out to deny India 2-0 series win. The Dinesh Chandimal-led unit was struggling at 147/5 before Roshan Silva and Niroshan Dickwella combined well and put on an unbeaten 152-run stand at the Feroz Shah Kotla. Dhananjaya de Silva too hit a hundred but was retired hurt.
With the draw, India sealed the series 1-0 and continued with their domination at home. Skipper Virat Kohli has been in sublime form and even scored a couple of double tons and a half-century in this series. India won the Nagpur Test by an innings and 239 runs after the rain-hit Kolkata game was drawn.
