    OUT! Thats two in a row. The bounce and pitch combination is becoming to tough for Sri Lanka to handle. Angelo Mathews went for the cut shot by extra purchase had him in a fix that handed Wriddhiman Saha a simple catch. Jadeja gets his second in as many overs.

    Hardik Pandya is bowling cutter's and a bit of leg-spin. Wouldn't Kuldeep Yadav been a better option sans a run-up. India's tactics are now seeming quite in the moment and nothing out of the blue.

    Angelo Mathews have taken on Ravindra Jadeja from the get go. He did the same in the first innings as well. Mixed both defence and offence quite successfully. Dimuth, on the hand, is enjoying all the fireworks from non strikers end.

    OUT! Ravichandran Ashwin does his magic. Despite showing good technique, Malinda Pushpakumara lacked the composure in the middle. Trying to switch-hit Ashwin over the top, Pushpakumara missed the ball completely and his middle stump knocked over. Dinesh Chandimal is out in the middle.

    Live Cricket Score, India vs Sri Lanka 2017, 2nd Test, Day 4: IND take 2-0 lead; win Colombo Test

    100! This has been a champion knock by Dimuth Karunaratne. This was also his second ton in a follow-on innings. His sixth hundred came in 224 balls. With Dimuth going strong it becomes important that other batsmen too provide resistance.

    Both Dimuth Karunaratne and Malinda Pushpakumara have played with determination in the morning session so far. Pushpakumara has been a bit lucky to edge the ball past Virat Kohli at slip. Dimuth is continuing his slow approach to a ton after being dropped by KL Rahul for 95.

    Dimuth Karunaratne and Malinda Pushpakumara have quite a job on their hands early morning. Dimuth will be eager to get to his 100, after missing it in the Galle Test. India will bank on Mohammed Shami and Ravindra Jadeja to make good of bowler friendly conditions.

    9:58 AM

    Mohammed Shami:

    Mohammed Shami: "The wicket is turning, but it's on the slower side. Hopefully, we will get some early wickets. As for the pacers, we will have to play a supporting role. We could have perhaps tried different variations during the partnership. Need to judge the conditions and play according to it."
