Virat Kohli has just brought up his 11th Test half-century on Day One of the second Test against Sri Lanka at Colombo. India were in trouble at 12 for 2 when the skipper came out to bat but his positive batting saw India through the session with no further damage. He got good support from KL Rahul who grew into confidence as the innings progressed. Kohli will want to continue on his merry way and ensure he gets a big score under his belt. India are currently 100 for the loss of two wickets after 27.1 overs in the game.  Live cricket updates: India vs Sri Lanka 2015, 2nd Test at Colombo, Day 1

India lost the wickets of Murali Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane early in the day. Vijay was trapped in front of the stumps for a duck while Rahane drove loosely at one outside off to be caught at third slip. Dhammika Prasad was the bowler on both the occasions. Sri Lanka would have had India in tatters had Jehan Mubarak accepeted a sitter when Rahul tried to cut one but hit it hard to Mubarak at gully who dropped the sitter. Angelo Mathews shared the new ball with Prasad and Dushmantha Chameera was the unlucky bowler who had the catch dropped of.

Earlier, India won the toss and elected to bat first. India made three changes with Shikhar Dhawan, Harbhajan Singh and Varun Aaron going out for Vijay, Stuart Binny and Umesh Yadav. Sri Lanka had a forced change to make, they replaced Nuwan Pradeep with Dushmantha Chameera. Live cricket score India vs Sri Lanka 2015, 2nd Test at Colombo, Day 1
