And now rain halts play. And it is pouring down heavily. India are 21 for 3 at the moment.
...
...
And now Rahane goes. This is not looking good for India.
...
More trouble now! KL Rahul is castled. India are 2 for 2 as captain Kohli strides out.
...
1st innings centurion Pujara is out for a second-ball duck. Bad start for India.
...
India still have a healthy lead of 111.
...
There's the final wicket. Sri Lanka all out for 201. Excellent recovery considering they were tottering at 47 for 6 at one stage.
...
That was also Ishant's 300th wicket in First class cricket.
...
...
That's Tea! Sri Lanka are still fighting. They are 175 for 8 and Herath is looking assured.
...
In fact, he is back! Well done Dhammika. Maybe the injury isn't too serious.
...
We are still not sure if Dhammika would come out to bat.
...
Amit Mishra is rewarded for his patience. Kaushal Silva is out lbw. Sri Lanka are 8 down.
...
Kusal top edges Ishant and Virat takes a smart catch. The skipper shows his aggressive side by giving the batsman a send-off.
...
...
...
Maiden Test fifty for Kusal Perera on his Test debut. Crucial knock.
...
...
...
This is a very good fightback by Sri Lanka. Kusal Perera and Rangana Herath are holding firm. Sri Lanka 118 for 6 now.
...
KL Rahul drops another catch. Kusal Perera this time.
...
...
...
Dhammika Prasad walks back retired hurt after getting hit on his fingers. Rangana Herath walks out to bat.
...
...
...
...
And on the stroke of lunch, Stuart Binny strikes again to leave Sri Lanka reeling at 47 for 5.
...
...
...
Stuart Binny gets the crucial wicket of Dinesh Chandimal. But there was an inside edge. Unlucky, but India deserve that luck after what happened at Galle. Sri Lanka 40 for 3 as Mathews joins in.
...
Dinesh Chandimal is looking to counter attack once again as he quickly moves on to 15 from 19 deliveries. Lanka 30 for 2.
...
Well and now Umesh strikes for India. Lanka in trouble as both openers are sent packing! Chandimal walks out to bat now.
...
...
India are all out for 312 in their first innings. Pujara remains unbeaten on 145.
...
...
...
...
...
...
Dropped! KL Rahul gives Tharanga a reprieve in the very first over.
...
Rain has played a crucial role in this Test and thus we have had only 95 overs of play possible over the course of two days. Hopefully, we can have a full day's play today. Indian fans would be hoping for some quick runs from the bat of centurion Cheteshwar Pujara.
