Sohail, picked up three wickets, Sri Lankans when he dismissed the dangerous looking veteran Herath on the first ball of his over. After conceding a single he got another wicket on his fourth delivery when Mendis was caught behind by Sarfraz Ahmed.
Pradeep was last to perish, after he fell to Sohail in the sixth ball given LBW, as Sri Lanka are done for 96, their ninth-lowest score in Tests.
