Sept 01 (ESPNCI) India fast bowler Ishant Sharma and Sri Lankan players Dhammika Prasad, Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne have been charged by the ICC for their roles in several angry exchanges during the fourth day of the SSC Test. "Details to be announced after the conclusion of the Test," the ICC said on Twitter. Ishant and Prasad faced off during the final session of the fourth day when Ishant, after being bounced several times by Prasad, smacked his helmet repeatedly while running down the pitch, as if asking the bowler to aim at his head.

* India eye historic series win in Sri Lanka on Day 5 of 3rd Test

Sept 01 (HT) International teams consider certain venues as their fortress. If Australia consider Perth as a special ground, India have Ferozeshah Kotla, where their last defeat came in 1987 and since then the hosts have won nine and drawn one. India breached Perth in 2008 with a teenaged Ishant Sharma providing the defining moment, when he dug deep into his reserves to bowl a ninth over and dismiss Ricky Ponting.

* Mathews resists even as India close in

India 312 & 274 Sri Lanka 201 & 134/5 (47 ov, target 386)

Sept 01 (ESPNCI) Angelo Mathews survived 137 balls, including a no-ball that he was caught off, but India got two of the seven wickets they began the day needing. India maintained the pressure through their quicks for the first 90 minutes, resulting in the wicket of Kaushal Silva, and spin brought them another in the last third of the session. In a series in which batsmen have continued repeating their dismissals, Silva fell to the short ball for the third time.

The umpires spoke to both captains following the incident, but the bad blood didn't end there; it spilled over into Ishant's celebrations at the fall of Sri Lanka's third wicket, the bowler smacking his own head repeatedly.

* Rohit falls, Binny increases India's lead

India 312 & 274 Sri Lanka 201 & 67/3 (18.1 ov, target 386)

Aug 31 (ESPNCI) Under pressure to keep his place in the side after a largely unproductive run that has kept Cheteshwar Pujara out, Rohit Sharma produced a crucial 50 to help India make a stride towards a defendable total, but his dismissal 17 minutes before lunch left the door ajar. Apart from Rohit, India lost just Virat Kohli - once again to a defensive push wide outside off -
