This is turning out to be India vs Australia match. Do we see a miracle by the English in second innings?

AFAIK miracles don’t happen that often. ;)

Root took 2 wkts in 2 ball Sri lanka 126 all out their Lowest at Galle.

Eng need 164 to win

Joe Root* 1.5/1/0/2

35.5 Root to Asitha Fernando, out Bowled!! Joe Root = 11 balls, 0 runs conceded, 2 wickets. He just cannot believe his luck Asitha Fernando b Root 0(1)

Root to Asitha Fernando, THATS OUT!! Bowled!!

35.4 Root to Embuldeniya, out Caught by Bairstow!! Root has broken the partnership! It was proving to be frustrating for the visitors and it's their skipper who gets the danger man. Was a really full ball outside off and Embuldeniya played it really late. Ends up guiding it straight into the mitts of Bairstow who was waiting for it at slip. He has done his job though. Sri Lanka have a good chance to defend this total given the pitch condition. Embuldeniya c Bairstow b Root 40(42) [4s-6 6s-1]

Root to Embuldeniya, THATS OUT!! Caught!!
