* Malinga to play for Mumbai Indians at CLT20

July 29 (ESPNCI) Lasith Malinga will represent Mumbai Indians at the Champions League T20 over the Southern Express side he led to the Super Fours title in Sri Lanka. Although he will not turn out for them, Malinga has over the past few days negotiated higher pay for the Express side, for their participation in the tournament, after talks with SLC. Malinga had officially asked the board for permission to play for Mumbai Indians on July 15, with that decision having been approved by SLC's executive committee on July 22.

* Lady luck finally deserts Sri Lanka

July 28 (ESPNCII) Two slips and a gully. A leg slip and a leg gully. A short leg. Silly mid off. Dilruwan Perera lurks at short cover. Rangana Herath prowls the bowling crease. Crows patrol fine leg. Fresh air blows through deep point. Sri Lanka are in their third last-hour finish in four Tests. Drama follows them like a man with an axe after the pretty girl in a horror flick. This is the kind of stuff Sri Lanka's Test supporters - a meagre and masochistic, but passionate lot - live for.

* Rain returns after Elgar exit

Sri Lanka 421 & 229/8d South Africa 282 & 68/2 (36.0 ov)

July 28 (ESPNCI) Sri Lanka had one objective when the day began: score as quickly as possible and declare. They did exactly that as they rattled along at well above four runs an over - more than double what South Africa managed in the first innings - to swell the lead to 368, despite more than an hour being lost due to rain and bad light.

* Mathews, Perera shine bright for Sri Lanka

July 29 (ESPNCI) A break out series, in which he was easily the most menacing Sri Lanka bowler on two spin-friendly tracks. There were occasional poor overs in Galle, but at the SSC, Perera's lines and lengths were impeccable. The deliveries to dismiss AB de Villiers and Vernon Philander in the first innings would have had virtually any batsman in the world in trouble. Bowled a few unplayable balls on the final day too, but did not quite have the luck.

* Senanayake to get help with correcting action

July 28 (ESPNCII) Sri Lanka offspinner Sachithra Senanayake will get help from Daryl Foster, a human movement lecturer at the University of Western Australia, to correct his bowling action. Senanayake was banned from bowling in international cricket by the ICC earlier this month, due to an illegal action. Senanayake will leave for Australia in the second week of August, along with Sri Lanka Cricket's head of coaching, Jerome Jayaratne, and will undergo a week-long remedial course at the University of Western Australia under Foster's guidance.

* Amla leads South Africa blockathon

July 28 (ESPNCI) It was riveting, un-Youtubeable Test cricket on the final day at the SSC. The stakes were high - for South Africa the No. 1 Test ranking and for Sri Lanka a formidable home record. The settings were dramatic - leaden skies for most of the day, four or more men poised round the bat, the indefatigable spinners rifling through their overs and some of the world's most flamboyant batsmen in the middle.
