SL 270-4 (102 ovs) vs India 536-7d | Scorecard
So, India finally managed to get a wicket after a long wait as Mathews was dismissed for 111.
Captain Dinesh Chandimal was still battling hard on an unbeaten dogged innings of 98 as Sri Lanka went into the tea break at 270 for four in 102 overs, still trailing India by 266 runs.
Ashwin got the only wicket of the session as he got Mathews caught behind, after he had added 181 runs for the fourth wicket with Chandimal.
India's fielding was once pretty sloppy as they dropped a couple of catches in the session, with Mathews getting the benefit both times.
India will look for a few more wickets after the tea break and look to get among the lower order in their bid to get a sizeable lead.
