Sri Lanka struggles at his favourite ground against gentle pace bowling of England. Sri Lanka is striving to salvage to save the test.

Sri Lanka once again showed its batting weakness in front its own crowd at galle.Galle cricket stadium is considered as one of the favourite ground which has brought many victories for Sri Lanka. England have never won a Test in Galle - they haven't won a Test away from home anywhere for two years - but, two days into this game, they have an excellent opportunity to put both those issues right.

In Reply Sri Lanka were bowled out for a mere 203. England were 38 without loss in their second innings , at the end of the second day's play.
