2nd Test - Australia v India: Day 3
Pujara looked in his zone and prevented a total collapse

Rain once again played spoilsport as the first Test between India and Sri Lanka at Eden Gardens saw just 21 overs bowled in the whole of day two. It was, however, sufficient for Lanka to further dent India's batting order by taking two more middle-order wickets, both falling to the medium pace of Dasun Shanaka.

Shanaka teased in and around the fourth stump line and picked up the wickets of Ajinkya Rahane and Ravichandran Ashwin. Pujara, bringing his recent county experience into play, looked a dogged figure as he slowly yet steadily held together India's broken innings. He remained unbeaten on 47 at stumps on day 2 with Wriddhiman Saha offering decent support for 22 balls.
