Murali Vijay was out on 82 trying to sweep Tharindu Kaushal but was trapped in front of the stumps  in the second Test against Sri Lanka at the P Sara Oval, Colombo. It is also his first one against Sri Lanka. He had a failure in the first innings after missing the first Test due to fitness. He found able support in Ajinkya Rahane who at the other end has also been positive in their approach. They will look to get as many runs as possible and will look to set Sri Lanka a very stiff target. India are currently 143 for the loss of two wickets and looking set for a big and quick second innings declaration. Sri Lanka have looked clueless in this attack from India. Amit Mishra did reckon that India were looking for a target of around 350. Live cricket score India vs Sri Lanka 2015, 2nd Test at Colombo, Day 4

India came back superbly after a brilliant partnership between Angelo Mathews and Lahiru Thirimanne that had steadied Sri Lanka. Mathews scored a superb sixth Test ton before Sri Lanka collapsed to get bowled out for 306, handing India a lead of 87 runs. Amit Mishra was the pick of the bowlers with a spell of four for 43 in his 21 overs of bowling with Ishant Sharma taking a couple of wickets. India earlier posted a total of 393 based on a 164-run stand between Virat Kohli (78) and KL Rahul (108). The lower middle order too chipped in with crucial fifties from Rohit Sharma and Wriddhiman Saha. Rangana Herath took four for 81 for the hosts.
