  • SL vs ENG 2nd Test Joe Roots 186 Helps England Close In On Sri Lankas First Innings Total On Day 3

The second Test came to life on the fourth morning as England's spinners shared six wickets to raise hopes that they could take a 2-0 series win in Sri Lanka.

The result gave England a second successive Test cleansweep in Sri Lanka after winning all three matches in the island nation in 2018.

England are now on the brink of whitewashing Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka which will be a memorable win for the England side as there has always been that chatter of SENA country players don't not being able to counter the spin on Asian pitches.

While Sri Lankan spinner Lasith Embuldeniya toiled hard to pick a 10-wicket-haul while also scoring a blistering 40 runs, England were patient enough to keep hitting the odd bad balls for runs as they chased the target with six wickets in hand. Despite having a lead of 37 going into the second innings, the hosts batting saw yet another blip, where they needlessly went for the aggressive shots, which plotted their downfall.

In the first Test of the series, Sri Lanka suffered a collapse in the first innings and the side was bundled out for 135. For Sri Lanka, Embuldeniya scalped seven wickets.

Embuldeniya put up some resistance with a ninth-wicket stand of 48 with Suranga Lakmal, who made 11 not out, before Root took the final two wickets with his off-spin.

Bess took a little longer to find his radar but when he did, attacking the off-stump line with drift and turn, Oshada Fernando was only able to offer a bog standard bat-pad chance to Zak Crawley at short-leg.

A wicket fell in each of the next two overs, with Angelo Mathews bowled trying to sweep Bess out before lunch and captain Dinesh Chandimal was caught brilliantly by Anderson at mid-on trying to slog a third boundary.

The day began with the swift demise of England's innings, with five runs added before Dilruwan Perera had Leach lbw.

Earlier Dilruwan Perera trapped overnight batsman Leach lbw for one on just the 11th ball of the day after England resumed on 339 for nine in Galle. The 38-year-old quick has 606 Test wickets in 157 matches. "But, we couldn't be in a better place to challenge them", Root expressed his excitement for the upcoming four-match series against India, starting next week.

Riding on Root's 228, England won the opening Test of the resumed series, which started last March but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
