India to win over SL

VVS Laxman hit 103 as India depends on him to pull off a win in the third and final Test match against Sri Lanka to level the series. Laxman played the innings brilliantly to reach his 16th Test hundred, while Sachin (54) and Raina (41 not out) were the other contributors. Chasing 257 on a difficult fifth day, the Indians recovered from their blows with a 109 run partnership between Laxman and Tendulkar. Ishant was caught by Kumar Sangakkara in the morning session. Tendulkar and Laxman then controlled the match for a successful chase.

Tendulkar had his luck in the innings when he was dropped by Tillakaratne Dilshan while trying to push a Randiv. He attacked Randiv thereafter by charging down the track and driving a shot past the bowler for a boundary. Laxman, on his part, leaned forward to an Ajantha Mendis delivery from the middle stump and turned it on to the boundary, marking the 50-run partnership between the two which came in 92 balls.
