So Sri Lanka still trail by 130 runs and have 8 wickets in their kitty. Will they be able to clear the deficit or will England be able to wrap up the innings quickly? All questions will be answered on Day 4 tomorrow. Do join us at 0945 local (0415 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!
Joe Root is down for an interview. He starts by saying that he is happy with his knock. Adds that it was a good partnership with Jos Buttler. Mentions that it was a calm and composed knock from him. Praises Kane Williamson for his purple patch. Credits Paul Collingwood and Jacques Kallis for his improved batting. Root also says that they will look to take the remaining wickets quickly. Further says that there is enough turn and bounce on the track.
England bowlers bowled good line and lengths with Broad being at his miserly best. Curran was lucky to get the wicket of Perera. Wood too tried hard with his short ball stuff, but didn't get any wicket. The spinners Leach and Bess bowled well in patches, with the former getting rid of Mendis with a beautiful ball. They would look to exploit the conditions on offer in a better way tomorrow and would like to run through the Sri Lankan batting order.
After conceding a lead of 286 runs, Sri Lankan openers came out to bat with a positive mindset. Both Kusal Perera and Lahiru Thirimanne negated the early threat of Broad and then went on to play the spinners with ease. Soon after completing his 7th half ton, Perera threw his wicket away to a very poor ball. Kusal Mendis, coming off from 4 consecutive ducks stitched a nice 54-run stand with Thirimanne for the 2nd wicket, but was out to Leach at the fag end of the day. Thirimanne, meanwhile is still batting on 76 and would like to continue the same tomorrow.
Earlier in the morning, England started off the day with the duo of Jos Buttler and Joe Root scoring at a brisk rate. Root completed his 4th double ton and batted brilliantly for his 228. The tailenders didn't do much damage as Sri Lankan bowlers did make a comeback after a change of ball and restricted England for a total of 421. Dilruwan Perera was the pick of the bowlers for them as he took 4 wickets and got good support from Embuldeniya who got 3 and Asitha Fernando who got 2.
Well it is Stumps on Day 3! A good day of cricket comes to an end. Sri Lanka are still trailing by 130 runs but have done well throughout the day overall to still stay in the game. The last session saw 66 runs being scored by Sri Lanka with the loss of 2 wickets.
The light meter is out and the umpires have decided that the light is not good enough for play to continue. The players walk off the field.

DRINKS! Sri Lanka have done well to not lose many wickets after Tea. Kusal Perera was unlucky as he got out to a poor ball. Thirimanne has looked solid and has completed his 7th half ton. Kusal Mendis is spending his time at the crease after some poor form of late. Curran got the breakthrough for England whereas Broad has kept his line and lengths very tight. Will be interesting how the Sri Lankan batters approach as the last hour of the day remains.

Jack Leach To Lahiru Thirimanne
NOT OUT! Missing the wickets! Tossed up delivery on middle and leg, Thirimanne looks to defend but gets hit on the pads. The bowler appeals for lbw but the umpire shakes his head. England review it. Ultra Edge shows there is a flat line when the ball passes the bat. Ball Tracker shows that it is missing the stumps. Thirimanne survives!
Review time! England review this for a LBW against Thirimanne. Replays are in. Waiting for the Ultra Edge here.. No bat there as shown by the Ultra Edge. Ball Tracker coming up now.. and its wickets missing. The original decision stays.
