India reach 329/6 at stumps vs Sri Lanka

India reach 329/6 at stumps vs Sri Lanka

It was after their dismissals that the pattern of play changed, as Sri Lanka wended their way back into the contest with repeated strikes through Pushpakumara and Lakshan Sandakan, the chinaman bowler. The pitch deteriorated quickly this session, and it will be interesting to see how it behaves for the remainder of the match.

Against Australia, Rahul made 64 and 10 at Pune in the first Test, scored 90 and 51 at Bengaluru, hit a fine 67 at Ranchi and ended the series with scores of 60 and 51 not out in Dharamsala. Umpires also extended the morning session. This is also his first ton in first-class cricket.

Ashwin will lead India's attack in the 3rd Test.

India move past 450. 4-4-6-6-6-0 off Pushpakumara. 26 runs off that over!

WICKET! Shami departs. He is caught and bowled by Sandakan. They have tried to beat India on a dry track.

Dhoni, unlike Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya and other young Indian cricketers, doesn't spend too much in the gym lifting heavy weights. This was the sixth century of his Test career. The all-rounder has batted brilliantly today. You played so well. all the guys, whoever got out, were playing so well and never looked like getting out and one ball has your name on it and you have to get out.

But, at least, the rain afforded Virat Kohli a novel experience. He scored 119 from 123 balls.

While the team has searched for creative solutions to their many problems, SLC has also intervened, having requested the team to attend a "recoup and regroup" meeting on what would have been the fifth day of the second Test, in Colombo. Kumara and Chameera have both had impressive outings on such surfaces before, and they will need to recapture that form to end India's batting dominance in this series.

Otherwise, he simply took the singles on offer against Sri Lanka's defensive fields. India 374/7 (Pandya 22*, Kuldeep 16*). He's swinging the ball well and asking tricky questions from both batsmen. An over later, Dilruwan Perera pulled a rank-turner but as luck would have it, the ball went straight to Pandya at deep midwicket. Pandya, Kuldeep keep the scoreboard ticking after Saha's early exit. Pushpakumara had been below par during the second Test at the Sinhalese Sports Club but yesterday he was rewarded for better control.

WICKET! Saha falls on 16. Kuleep's googly in the next over had Malinda Pushpakumara walking back followed by Vishwa Fernando's wicket. India face a tricky task of posting a big total. Pandya (108 batting) and Umesh Yadav (3 batting) were at the crease.
