Mendis took four wickets for 64 runs to take a total of seven wickets in the match. Nkrumar Bonner and Joshua de Silva, who were on 18 for six, disappointed the Sri Lankan bowlers a bit. Both of them added 62 more runs in the morning session. But Embuldencia dismissed da Silva for 54 to end the 100-run partnership.

Bonner was the top scorer with an unbeaten 68 off 220 balls with seven fours. It was his third Test fifty. Sri Lankan captain Dimuth Karunaratne was adjudged the ‘Player of the Match’ for his innings of 147 and 83 runs.
