Good knock from Karunaratne but poor batting from the middle order. Its a shame that kusal mendis went out with a wrong umpiring decision, maybe SL would be in a great position if the TV umpire didnt make that mistake. I think Dhananjaya needs to be dropped for future tests, Mathews will replace him. The 5th day will be interesting, BD are still favourites to win but i would love to see SL fightback hard like they did the last 20 overs. If Lakmal and Dilruwan put on another 40-50 runs before the lose a wicket, then for the last wicket partnership they should keep Sandakan off strike and let the other batsmen play his shots like Chandimal and herath did in tje first innings. It would be funny if SL bat through most ofthe day and set a target of 200 for BD with under 30 overs left.
