Rahane fails again, India lose 2nd wicketDecember 05, 2017 11:16
India 30-2 (14 ovs) & 536-7d vs SL 373 | Scorecard
Lakmal comes back after spending some time off. He bowls a good over, beating Dhawan outside the off-stump before the left-hander takes a single from the fifth ball.
Perera comes back as he replaces Gamage. Dhawan comes down but is forced to defend before he takes another single to continue his cautious approach. Rahane picks one off the last ball to take his score to 10, the first time he has got to double digits in this series.
Rahane has looked very shaky as he watchfully plays out an over from Lakmal.
And his painful innings ends in the next over. Infact, Rahane throws his wicket away as he comes down the track and looks to loft Perera down the ground but holes out to the fielder at long-on to perish for 10.
India's aim was to give Rahane some time in the middle ahead of the South Africa tour but he wasted the opportunity with a reckless shot.
Cheteshwar Pujara walks in at No. 4 as he gets off the mark with a single.
