Day 3 review

Sri Lanka are staring at a massive defeat, having ended the third day on 24 for 2, still needing 636 runs for win. Ever since Trent Boult ran through them on the second day,  New Zealand have taken control, not allowing Sri Lanka even a sniff. Tom Latham (176) and Henry Nicholls (162*), along with a 45-ball 71* from Colin de Grandhomme took New Zealand to 585 for 4 declared in their second innings. Sri Lanka then lost Danushka Gunathilaka and Dimuth Karunaratne, and will need a miracle to fight back.
