That's it from us on Day 3 of the second Test between Sri Lanka and India at the Sinhalese Sports Club in Colombo on Saturday. After the one-sided competition that we have witnessed so far, it was refreshing to witness the Sri Lankans finally put up some fight in the series. Kusal Mendis and Dimuth Karunaratne turned things around with resilience, adding nearly 200 for the second wicket to pull the hosts out of the muck that they had found themselves in after the early loss of Upul Tharanga. While the hosts have put up a terrific fight so far, the odds still are in favour of the Indians, who lead by 230 runs. A wicket or two still might trigger a Sri Lankan collapse tomorrow. If they are to think of drawing this one, they still have a long road ahead of them.
We'll return tomorrow morning, at the start of the fourth day. Do follow our live blog of the fourth day's play. But for now, it is time for us to bid you all goodbye!
