A day when Virender Sehwag joined Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Mohammad Azharuddin in an elite list of Indians who have scored at least 20 Test hundreds, India were left staring at defeat.

Muttiah Muralitharan lit up his final Test with a five-wicket haul that triggered a collapse and allowed Kumar Sangakkara to enforce the follow on.

In the second innings, India were 181 for 5, still trailing Sri Lanka's first-innings 520 by 63 runs.

VVS Laxman and M.S. Dhoni, India's last recognised pair, are at the crease, and it will take a miracle, or bad weather, to save India.
