A half-century fight by wicketkeeper-batsman B.J. Watling helped New Zealand take a lead of 177 in stumps on day three in the first test match against Sri Lanka in Galle on Friday. New Zealand, which followed Sri Lanka for 18 runs in the first innings, finished with 195 for seven and a goal of around 200 could prove difficult for the hosts. The spinners have long ruled the chicken coop in Galle and towards the end of the game they tend to be even more threatening.

The biggest successful persecution here is 99 by Sri Lanka against Pakistan in 2014 and armed with a three-pronged attack, New Zealand should already feel comfortable.It was an exciting test day with both teams fighting tooth and nail for the initiative and on the stumps on day three, New Zealand emerged at the top thanks to the efforts of Watling, who finished undefeated in 63.
New Zealand had collapsed to 25 for three losing batters, Ross Taylor (3) and Kane Williamson (4) at a low price and with 124 for six with only a 106-run lead and four remaining wickets, they were playing to catch up.

But Watling found an ideal partner in Tim Southee, as the couple shared a 54-run position to change the game in favor of New Zealand. Sri Lanka was neglected in the field with Southee fell three times. Lasith Embuldeniya provided the much needed advance when Southee gave him the charge and Niroshan Dickwella perplexed him. He made 23. It was Embuldeniya’s fourth wicket at the entrances.

Watling had been handed a leg before to Embuldeniya when he was in one. But the batter successfully reviewed the decision. Watling, who has six hundred Test and registered a better undefeated mark in his 142 race against Sri Lanka, was once again a thorn in his flesh with an undefeated 63 who left 138 balls with five four.

Previously, after resuming 227 for seven, Niroshan Dickwella scored the best score for Sri Lanka with 61 as he moved to 267. Dickwella and Suranga Lakmal were involved in a crucial 81-run position for the eighth wicket that allowed them to take the lead . Lakmal made 40.

William Somerville was hitting five at the other end when the bad light stopped playing at the International Galle Stadium.

Previously, Sri Lanka added 40 runs to its 227-7 night score before losing its last three wickets in the morning session.

New Zealand, which made 249 in the first innings, was also eliminated by Sri Lankan spinners in its second spell.

Silva’s Dhanjaya off-spinner drew the first blood when Jeet Raval (four) was caught on the cover after trying to verify his shot on the drive.

Kane Williamson had fallen in love with a third ball duck in the first innings and also seemed unusually uncomfortable in the second inning.

The right made four before attacking Lasith Embuldeniya and Kusal Perera, positioned in the middle, took an excellent shot by jumping back to send the captain of New Zealand back.

On his next visit, Lasith Embuldeniya dismissed Ross Taylor (three) to further bind tourists.

Latham organized a brief recovery work with Henry Nicholls, who contributed 26 before they both left.

The wicketkeeper-batsman hit five limits on his patient stroke while Tim Southee contributed 23.
