India 51-2 (17 ovs) & 536-7d vs SL 373 | Scorecard
After bowling out Sri Lanka for 373, India reached 51 for two to swell their lead at lunch on Day 4 of the third Test.
Dhawan batted cautiously to be unbeaten on 15 from 38 balls but Pujara was off the blocks quickly to smash 17 not out from 15 balls.
India lost two wickets in the morning session. Opener Murali Vijay was caught behind off Lakmal for nine.
Rahane, promoted to No. 3, continued his poor run in the series as he was dismissed for 10 after playing a reckless shot against Dilruwan Perera.
India's overall lead is 214 runs and they would look to play positively in the post-lunch session and build their lead before putting Sri Lanka into bat in the final session.
