SL 61-4 (14 ovs) vs India 487 | Scorecard

It has been India all the way on Day 2. After posing 487 in their first innings courtesy of Pandya's attacking century, India have claimed a few early wickets to reduce Sri Lanka to 61 for four.

Shami was excellent with the new ball, claiming two for 15, dismissing both the openers.

Pandya followed up with 96-ball 108 with the wicket of Mathews for a duck, while the in-form Mendis was run out for 18.

A few early wickets after the tea break could see Sri Lanka getting bowled out for a low score in their first innings and staring at another huge defeat.
