England only needs 10 wickets to win the victory on the fourth day of the first test against Sri Lanka in Galle.

Keaton Jennings struck Galle for more than six hours with determined determination in Galle, did not finish, and had carefully maneuvered his team to a winning position in Sri Lanka on day three of the first test.

The lead-off batter was assisted by Ben Stokes, who scored half a century, and handy thirties from Jos Buttler and Ben Foakes when England won 322 for six.

That meant that the hosts had set the unnameable task of trying to score a world record with 462 runs to win.

Sri Lanka managed to negotiate the rest of the third day without fear, with Dimuth Karunaratne and Kaushal Silva starting the day on the fold.
