With time running out in the Test and the weather still uncertain, there is a high likelihood that this match could end in a draw, which will break a sequence of 25 consecutive Tests in Sri Lanka that ended with an outright winner.On the third day, New Zealand had recovered well through Tom Latham's composed 111*, ending on 196 for 4, just 48 runs behind Sri Lanka's first-innings total of 244. Latham shared three significant partnerships that kept New Zealand steady. He put on 50 with Ross Taylor for the third wicket, 42 for the fourth with Henry Nicholls, and his unbroken association with Watling for the fifth wicket has yielded 70 runs so far.Sri Lanka's total, meanwhile, was built around Dhananjaya de Silva's free-stroking century, which allowed their lower order to rally from 130 for 6, and also ensured their innings went on till the third day, with the first two badly hit by rain.FacebookTwitterFacebook MessengerEmailMatch CoverageAll Match NewsDhananjaya de Silva is cooler than youThe score was 93 for 4, then 130 for 6.
