COLOMBO, Sri Lanka, Apr 07 (AP/UNB) - England offspinner Graeme Swann completed his second 10-wicket match haul to dismiss Sri Lanka for 278 in its second innings on Saturday, leaving the tourists with a winning target of 94 runs in two sessions to win the second test and level the series.
Resuming at 218-6, Sri Lanka survived some close chances as the batsmen struggled to handle sharp turn and sometimes steep bounce at P. Sara Oval.
Anjelo Mathews was dropped twice at forward short-leg by Alastair Cook but the fielder was successful in his third attempt to dismiss Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene for 64.
Mathews was last dismissed for 46.
