India are in a spot of bother as 12 for 2 after just the five overs in the game as India lose two early wickets in the form of Murali Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane. Vijay was trapped in front of the stumps for a duck by Dhammika Prasad. With Rohit Sharma failing, India sent in Rahane at No. 3 but the move did not work for India as Rahane drove loosely was caught at third slip. Prasad has already taken two and this is just the perfect start for Sri Lanka who are wanting to give Kumar Sangakkara a perfect farewell.  Live cricket updates: India vs Sri Lanka 2015, 2nd Test at Colombo, Day 1

India‘s captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat in the second Test against Sri Lanka at the P. Sara Oval in Colombo on Thursday. India, looking to level the three-match series after losing the first Test in Galle by 63 runs, made three changes to their team. Opener Vijay replaced the injured Shikhar Dhawan, while all-rounder Stuart Binny and fast bowler Umesh Yadav came in for off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and paceman Varun Aaron. Sri Lanka brought in fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera in place of the injured Nuwan Pradeep for batting great Kumar Sangakkara’s last Test. Groundstaff rushed to cover the pitch as light rain began to fall just before the start of play. Live cricket score India vs Sri Lanka 2015, 2nd Test at Colombo, Day 1
