    What do Pakistan have to do to secure a draw - or non-result - tonight? I don't know much about cricket sadly.

    Cheers.

    Not possible. A draw is achieved when a team is trailing in the runs for the overall match but have not been dismissed twice at the end of the fifth day. This day is the fourth.

    Herath picks up another wicket from his filthy line. Urgh.

    Umm.. so do you actually disagree with what I said or are you bringing up someone else's opinion that has nothing to do with me?

    the main thing is he picked up the wickets, filthy or not, it got the desired effect...

    Ha, how many of them were actually his doing rather than the batsman getting themselves out? Probably only Sarfraz, although perhaps Younis too.

    by bowling into that line he made the batsman take a risk, negative bowling, but effective. It would seem Sri Lanka are playing for the series rather than this match, an overseas victory would be huge for them tbf, I'm somewhat reminded of the third test of the last series between these two

    It's negative bowling indeed but Herath has been a very aggressive spinner and wicket taking threat for the last two years with little back up from the bowlers. It's nice for his team to finally be in a position to close out an away series. Can hardly blame him for it.

    While the determination of the SL batsmen is very impressive, one hopes they have the ability to alter their game plan in other conditions. I'm not usually an "intent" type of person, but they'll need to be able to actually score runs when the pitch is quicker. They won't be able to win tests overseas batting like this.

    Well that's one of a number of scenarios in which it can happen

    I was rooting for Sri Lanka before yesterday's effort. I honestly hope Junaid quickly rips through the tail and we have a good game on our hands. Playing for a draw for a series victory on the fourth morning when the match was no doubt still winnable is unacceptable IMO.
