But, Chandi­mal held on stub­bornly to re­main on 49 at the end of the day with Karunaratne who had com­pleted his seventh Test cen­tury at 133.

Though there were many the­o­ries about the pink ball and be­hav­iour, the Lankans who were com­pletely new to this ver­sion of the game have taken up the chal­lenge with a lot of au­thor­ity. This is the sixth day- night Test with a pink ball since Aus­tralia and New Zealand played the first such con­test at Ade­laide in De­cem­ber 2015.
