SL name Chameera, Gamage in squad for Third Test
Pradeep was injured during the first day of the Second Test, which Sri Lanka lost by an innings and 53 runs, and was ruled out for at least two weeks with a hamstring tear.
Kohli tried to stem the rot during a 84-ball innings, ended when he edged a Sandakan delivery to slip.
Pace spearhead Vishwa Fernando chipped in with the wicket of Ravichandran Ashwin, who was caught behind after a hard-working 31. The interval was duly pushed back by half an hour, and Pandya went on to dominate an unbroken tenth-wicket stand of 66, racing from 50 off 61 balls to 108 off 93, with the No. 11 Umesh Yadav scoring 3 off 14 in that time.
Kuldeep Yada and Pandya added 62 runs for the seventh wicket before left-arm wrist spinner Lakshan Sandakan broke the partnership when he had Yada caught behind by Niroshan Dickwella.
As far as India is concerned, Pandya surpassed legendary all-rounder Kapil Dev and Sandeep Patil's tally of 24 runs in one over.
The opening pair of Dhawan and Rahul gave India a brisk start and reached 134 without loss at lunch.
India did not practice on Friday, but Kohli said they are confident of taking the field on Saturday and are in a "good zone".
Dhawan fell to the sweep, hitting Pushpakumara in the air as Dinesh Chandimal completed an excellent catch diving to his left. Pujara departed too, looking shaky and unable to read the slower bowlers in the 33 balls he faced. "We will try to be consistent and if we do then we can win". "We don't have players who are happy to sit out", Kohli said. An over later, Shami bowled it full outside off and Karunaratne prodded and the outside edge went to Saha. I have matured over the years. Before this Test, Rahul had six fifties and that meant he got ahead of the likes of Sunil Gavaskar, Dilip Vengsarkar, Sanjay Manjrekar and Navjot Sidhu, who all scored five straight half-centuries in their respective Test careers. Sandakan dismissed Pujara for a paltry 8 as he nicked one to Mathews at slip to get Sandakan his first wicket.
He put on only 10 runs with Kohli as India were left to rebuild their innings despite being in a comfortable position. KL Rahul became the first wicket to fall when he departed for a well made 85.
By this time, Malinda Pushpakumara had bowled four overs in the morning, and his figures read 22-2-56-3.
Both of them had half-lives given to them by Sri Lanka, but apart from that odd chance, they were thoroughly in control, with the home team's bowling attack struggling to cope with the onslaught, particularly from the blade of Dhawan.
