India's Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane run between wickets on Day 1 of the 2nd Test against Sri Lanka at Colombo

Earlier in the game, India continued their dominance over the host on the first two days of the second Test after registering a historic win at Galle. He was again in action when Dilruwan Perera ran down the pitch and completely missed it. Saha was super quick to remove the bails.

Debutant left-arm spinner Malinda Pushpakumara was still searching for his first Test scalp as paceman Nuwan Pradeep had to leave the field due to a suspected pulled hamstring. The blow ensured that slow bowling ruled the roosts today, and rightly so given the manner of all the dismissals that took place.

Part-time bowler Dimuth Karunaratne claimed Pujara, who added just five runs to his overnight 128. Rahane looked to be positive and added some runs to his name before becoming Milinda Pushpakumara's maiden worldwide wicket, out stumped for 132 while going for the big shot. In walked Ashwin, ahead of Saha.

Jadeja was denied a second success in that over when Kohli dropped Angelo Mathews with the former Sri Lanka skipper having yet to score. Rahane fell for the trap, and suffered the outcome, giving way to Saha out at the crease. He then used his feet smartly against the spinners and managed to see Sri Lanka into another session, with his score at 28.

"Karunaratne and Mendis are great players". That was the turning session. Pandya succeeded him, contributing with a breezy 20 from 20. Pandya took his chances, but couldn't hit them all out of the park.

In all two centuries and three half centuries have been scored by the Indian batsmen. With a fifty-run stand, they were able to put India back on top.

"In the first innings, the ball was not turning that much".

Pujara batted for three hours and 20 minutes, hitting 11 boundaries and a six in his 133.

The opener had been denied his maiden wicket on Thursday after a review from KL Rahul overturned the leg-before wicket decision but a similar review, this time from Chandimal, would not deny Karunaratne his maiden Test scalp.

Sri Lanka were earlier dismissed for 183 in their first innings in reply to India's 9 (dec)-622.

India will look to capitalise on the breakthrough tomorrow as an innings victory still seems a likely possibility, while Sri Lanka would hope that the Mendis-Karunaratne stand would pump up their batters enough to erase the lead by India and put on a fighting total for India to chase.

"Not being able to play cricket was tough, but once I am back I am really happy; and even happier I could start off with a fifty and make some contribution to the team.I have been injured a few times, which is very unfortunate and which is very disappointing".
