SL 344-8 (106 ovs) and 183 (49.4 ovs) India 622-9 decl (158 ovs) Scorecard

New man in Herath gets off the mark with a single down to deep square leg.

Jadeja strikes again!

De Silva out, Rahane takes a good low catch at slip. The on-field umpires go to the third umpire for a referral on the legitimacy of the catch.

On watching the replays the third umpire gives it out.

Sri Lanka need De Silva and Dickwella to stay at the crease and get some runs on the board. Their deficit is now 96 runs but there is a lot of work to be done by the hosts to save the match.

Drinks are called.

De Silva takes 3 fours off Jadeja, using his feet well to cut and sweep the bowler, before Pandya bowls out a maiden with his cutters.

Pandya continues and bowls a maiden.

Sri Lanka are now employing the sweep against Jadeja and to good effect. 

Dhananjay de Silva starts the over with a slog sweep through square leg.
