The second cricket Test between India and Sri Lanka meandered to a tame high-scoring draw on Friday with a staggering 1478 runs being scored over five days on a track which proved to be graveyard for bowlers.With little interest left on a dreary last day, the Indians scored a mammoth 707 all out in the first innings, recording their second-highest total ever largely due to a dogged resistance by the last wicket pair of Ishant Sharma (27) and Pragyan Ojha (17).The hosts then scored 129 for three in their second innings before both the captains decided to call off play, bringing an end to a dull Test completely dominated by the bastmen with just 17 wickets falling.Brief scores: Sri Lanka 642-4 declared and 129-3; India 707.
