What a excellent gritty test innings from Dimuth considering next highest score was 26. Batted well with Lakmal and Sandakan to control strike against quicks and look to score runs. What invaluable runs.

Credit to Lakmal and Sandakan for hanging around. They face more deliveries than any other batsmen bar Dimuth.
