COLOMBO (Reuters) - India enforced the follow-on after bowling out Sri Lanka for 183 on day three of the second test on Saturday.

In reply to India's first innings total of 622-9 declared, Sri Lanka resumed on 50-2 and lost their remaining eight wickets in the extended morning session to concede a 439-run first innings lead.

Niroshan Dickwella top-scored for the hosts with a breezy 51.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was the pick of the Indian bowlers, claiming 5-69.
