SL 209-2 (61 ovs) and 183 (49.4 ovs) India 622-9 decl (158 ovs) Scorecard


Shami starts the day for India with a hope to take wickets early on with 20 overs to go before the 2nd new ball is due.

And Shami comes around the wicket to left-hander Karunaratne.

Shami bowls a peach and makes the ball move away after pitching beating the batsman. 

Another close call, making the batsman play at the delivery. Shami is getting some late movement here and keeping the batsman guessing.

With the pitch showing no signs of aiding the bowlers, off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is pinning his hopes on the second new ball to give India breakthroughs on the fourth day of the second Test against Sri Lanka.

Replying to India's massive first innings total of 622/9 declared, Sri Lanka were bowled out for a paltry 183 with as many as as eight wickets falling in a single session.
