KL Rahul marked his return to the Indian team with a fine half-century

He said knowing the team was waiting for his return post recovery made a big difference and came back with a lot more confidence. In the very next over, Yadav had Kusal Mendis (24) caught at mid-on, striking a double body blow to Sri Lanka s hopes of defiance.

Saha showed his liking for spin, sweeping and using his feet expertly, while the risky Jadeja struck Herath for two sixes in as many balls as India amassed another huge total. So, we put pressure back on them.

Ashwin forced Angelo Mathews (26) for a close-in catch to Chetenshwar Pujara and Jadeja bowled out Dhananjaya de Silva.

Debutant Malinda Pushpakumara and Perera lasted four overs together, an alliance during which the latter was slowly but steadily settling in and negotiating well against Jadeja and Shami.

Already short on bowling strength, Sri Lanka's chances of putting up a fight in the second Test against India suffered a massive blow when their only pace bowler, Nuwan Pradeep, was ruled out for more than a month after breaking down with a left hamstring injury.

At 451-6 Sri Lanka would have been hopeful of wrapping up the innings in quick time, but Saha (67) and Jadeja (70 not out) combined for an eighth-wicket stand of 72. He is placed second in the all-time list among Indian bowlers.

Mendis finished on 16 off 48 balls, which included three boundaries, while Chandimal remained undefeated on eight off 21 deliveries, which included a six.

Ashwin fell to Hearth bowled out after scoring 54 and Pandya made a quickfire 20 in as many balls with 3 boundaries as India went past the 500-run mark. However, the Proteas has a busy schedule in the upcoming summer as they are going to host Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka in the home season.

Pujara and Rahane added 217 runs for the fourth wicket.

Cheteshwar Pujara has become the joint second-fastest Indian batsman to score 4,000 Test runs, reaching the milestone in the 84th innings played by him.

The hosts, though, got a breakthrough from an unexpected source when Dimuth Karunaratne trapped Pujara lbw for 133 in the second over.

Right-handed opening batsman KL Rahul recovered from flu to replace Abhinav Mukund and will partner southpaw Shikhar Dhawan whose 190 in the first innings of the series opener in Galle set up India's 304-run victory inside four days.
