But skipper Kohli and opener Abhinav Mukund struck repesctive half-centuries and frustrated the Lankan bowlers, and took India to a formidable lead.

The visitors continued their domination in Galle as they stretched their lead to over 498 putting Sri Lanka on the back foot. "I had a good run before this Test series and I just came with the same confidence", he said.

"We would like to maintain that standard". He made just 112 runs in 9 games in domestic cricket and 44 from 11 matches in the 2016 IPL with just 3 wickets. We are very well poised at this stage.

Many players who haven't been first choice players have come in and performed when given a chance, what does this tell you about the squad and the interactions within.?

At the break, Hardik Pandya was batting on four with Ravindra Jadeja unbeaten on eight at the other end. The Lankan lower order batsmen ran out of partners in the end as Virat Kohli kept attacking the Lankan batsmen.

The decision was subsequently overturned after replays suggested the ball would have sailed over the stumps. Dhawan was dismissed for 190 runs in 31 balls with 168 balls. Preview: Sri Lanka will be hoping to fight back after India dominated day 2, and put the hosts in a big hole.

Nuwan Pradeep perhaps is a man of few words and many wickets. I am happy and thankful to God. But more than that I got out at a wrong time.

Flash Flood Watch For Friday Through Saturday
Models once again want to try and end the rain by late morning Saturday with a slow clearing process throughout the afternoon. You may want to reschedule. "Widespread rain totals of 1-2" likely tonight with isolated higher totals possible.


"As soon as we saw the x-ray, we realised it was serious, so we sent him to Colombo". "We came to the match with a plan".

India can be a little sorry for 399 runs. His innings was studded with 5 fours and 3 sixes.

There will no maiden hundred for Mukund, though, after the opener was trapped leg before Danushka Gunathilaka in what proved to the last ball of the day.

The 30-year-old seamer had toiled relentlessly on a flat and placid Galle pitch to claim the three Indian wickets to fall on day one. Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin and Umesh Yadav, meanwhile, chipped in with one wicket apiece. Finally, there is scope for Gall test. Rangana Herath's Gall.

Things got worse for Sri Lanka, with doctors confirming that allrounder Asela Gunaratne was out for the remainder of the Test series with injury.

Shikhar Dhawan revealed that he was holidaying with family at Hong Kong and later planned to visit Melbourne before joining the team.

"Medical experts have indicated Gunaratne will be out of action for a minimum of 6-8 weeks, and will be returned to full mobility under a strictly managed rehabilitation regime over the period", it said in a statement.
