SL 19-1 (13 ovs) and 135 vs India 487 | Scorecard

Another disappointing batting performance by Sri Lanka as they are reduced to 19 for one in 13 overs, after being forced to follow-on.

They were bowled out for a lowly 135 in the first innings after India had posted a mammoth 487 in their first innings.

Sri Lanka still need another 333 runs to avoid the humiliation of an innings defeat with three more days left in the match.

India are sitting pretty and would be looking to push for victory on the third day itself and complete an emphatic 3-0 series whitewash.
