73.6 - J Leach to M Pushpakumara

Stock ball yorker, middle stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to silly mid off, by Leach. What a fitting way for the match to finish. Very full from Leach and it almost looks like a bump ball but Pushpakumara has scooped it straight into the hands of the bowler. A maiden Test match five-wicket haul for the man from Somerset.England take the victory by a margin of 57 runs and take an unassailable lead in the series. Things could have gone very differently though and at tea yesterday Sri Lanka were in the driving seat. Wickets at the wrong time for the hosts curtailed their chase and a battling innings from Angelo Mathews couldn't quite get his team over the line. An extremely entertaining Test match and one that the England camp and Joe Root will remember for a long time. A first series victory in Sri Lanka for over 17 years.All eyes now look to the next match in Colombo on the 23rd November. The series is over for Sri Lanka but they will not want to lose 3-0. Join us then.
