Sri Lanka declared their first innings at a massive 760 for 7 after a world record sixth wicket partnership of 351 runs between Mahela Jayawardene (275) and Prasanna Jayawardene (154 not out) gaining a lead of 334 runs.
The Team India reached 190 for 2 in their second innings at stumps on the 4th day, still trailing by 144 runs. Gautam Gambhir (74) and night watchman Amit Mishra (12) were at the crease. Earlier Sehwag made 51 runs and Dravid contributed with 38 runs though he was unlucky to be given out.
India still have a great task to prevent the Lankans from recording their first Test triumph on Indian soil as they have to bat out the entire last day on a Motera track which was expected to deteriorate and assist the spinners.
