Sri Lanka (2nd Innings)- 5/2 at Stumps, Day 2

Galle: Riding on Shikhar dhawan (134), Virat Kohli (103) and Wriddhiman Saha (60)'s innings, team India posted a total of 375 at Stumps in day 2. The blue eyed boy of Indian Cricket Virat Kohli continued his golden run in Test cricket, as he raced on to his fifth hundred in six matches.The Indian captain, who joined forces with Shikhar Dhawan late last evening on 28/2, took his time to settle down before unleashing a few of his trademark shorts to bring up his 11th ton off 187 balls. However, Kohli fell soon after reaching his fourth hundred as Test captain, perishing to Tharindu Kaushal for 103.

Sri Lanka came back in the match and claimed 4 quick wickets when the Bengal boy Wriddhiman Saha came into the middle. Saha played out a modest 60 before falling to Nuwan Pradeep. India were bowled out for 375 runs on the board. In repluy to India's 375, Sri Lanka came into bat and lost two quick wickets with just a mere run on the score board. Understanding the situation, Kumar Sangakkara came out to bat instead of another night watchman after Dhamika Prasad. Sri Lanka ended the day with 5 runs on the board after losing their openers for ducks. Lankans trail the Indians by 187 runs at the end of the second days play.
