India, who declared in their 1st innings after posting mammoth 622, started their day 3 of the second Test on a positive note as Sri Lanka, who were trailing by 572, were bowled out for 183 runs.

Sri Lanka received more bad news on Friday when seamer Nuwan Pradeep was ruled out of bowling for the rest of the ongoing second Test against India in Colombo. Anyway, here are Upul Tharanga and Dimuth Karunaratne with a 439-run deficit to deal with At Lunch, India claim a 439-run first-innings lead 12:30 pm: Pradeep walks in with an injured hamstring and gets bowled for a duck by Ashwin 11:59 am: Sri Lanka falls apart.

Jadeja continued with his aggressive batting, stepping out to smash Herath for another six with Umesh Yadav also joining the party with a boundary off Dilruwan Perera. It takes 10-15 overs to get a wicket. However, Mendis came in and straightaway went for his shots.

"That's the main reason they got over 600", he elaborated.

Their 50-partnership came off only 46 balls but this attacking ploy didn¿t stand for long.

It also began Lanka¿s collapse as they lost their last 6 wickets for 66 runs in 15.4 overs.

With a breezy 26 on the board, he flicked at an Ashwin delivery and Pujara took a spectacular left-handed catch at leg gully. A heavy run scorer in first class cricket, Pujara has been able to translate his big run scoring form for the country.

Wriddhiman Saha played a calm and composed innings as he clinched his fifth half-century in Tests. Fast bowler Mohammed Shami bowled superbly for figures of 2/13 while left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja returned 2/84.

Indian bowlers came down on the field with a objective. Pujara was lbw after umpire Bruce Oxenford, who's having a poor game, was again overruled by the third umpire, after he initially gave the batsman not out, to give part-time seamer Karunaratne his maiden Test wicket.

Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane scored hundreds on Day of the second Test and built a brilliant unbeaten partnership to move the scoreboard after losing the wickets of skipper Virat Kohli.

Earlier Cheteshwar Pujara and Rahane scored centuries and four other batsmen scored half-centuries to help India to a massive score.

The second match of the three-match Test series between India and Sri Lanka will be played from 3-7 August.
