Time to say good bye. It was a good day of cricket and Sri Lanka would be happy with their effort. However, they are still two partnerships away from setting up the match for themselves. Can they do it? Join us tomorrow to find out. Day 4 will start at 915 am.

Watch our reporter Vaibhav Shah discuss the day three's play with fans from outside the Eden Gardens stadium.

Sri Lanka have come back splendidly after losing two early wickets. They are within a couple of scoring shot of India's first innings total. Their batsmen have been beaten umpteen number of times. But have stayed focused. Important India do not concede too big a lead. The match is still open with two days to go. Lanka have to bat last. So will not want a big target to chase. This match is not over.

Even as the players have left the field, the two umpires still stand in the centre.

We are going off surely. Joel Wilson removes the bails and that is the end of Day 3's play. We lost more than 26 overs today, nevertheless, the match has moved significantly.

Sun has started to set. It has became dark and the umpires are checking their lightmeter. Chandimal tucks the first ball behind square for a couple. Then Chandimal tried to steal a single to mid off. Jadeja ran towards the money and hurled a throw. He missed. Chandimal made his ground and the ball raced away to the fence. Five runs for Sri Lanka! Too many interruptions and the umpires have decided to stop the play due to bad light.

Pretty gloomy in here. I reckon it is a matter of a few minutes.

As the physios consult Chandimal, the umpires take the opportunity to check on and even speak to the captain. We are continuing for the time being.

The two umpires consult each other in between overs and an official runs out to hand the light meter to Kettleborough. They will be needing it very soon, they might even call it off in the next over.

India vs Sri Lanka 1st Test Day 3: Sun has started to set. It has became dark and the umpires are checking their lightmeter. Chandimal tucks the first ball behind square for a couple.

Day 2 Report: Waging a lonely battle, Chesteshwar Pujara was three short of his 16th half-century as India were reduced to 74/5 when early lunch was called due to rain and more downpour axed Day Two of the first Test at the Eden Gardens on Friday.

Only 105 minutes of play was possible on the second day in the morning session before the skies opened up.

Lunch had to be called early after rain interrupted play half hour before the break.

Pujara (47 off 102; 4x9) held fort at one end beginning the day on eight runs. The other overnight batsman, Ajinkya Rahane (4 off 21; 1x4), failed to get going and eventually fell to Dasun Shanaka (2/23) playing a poor shot as 21 overs were bowled in the first session.

Ashwin (4 off 21) was also guilty of a naive drive as India failed to recover from their overnight score of 17/3.

Suranga Lakmal, who returned magnificent figures of 6-6-0-3 on the rain-affected first day, conceded his first runs after 46 deliveries off the bat of Rahane, who three overs later fell prey to Shanaka.

Lakmal still had great figures to show for, leaking just five runs in 11 overs and bowling nine maidens and taking three wickets.

On day two, a tempted delivery outside the off-stump took a thin edge off Rahane's bat to wicketkeeper Niroshan Dickwella as he tried to aimlessly drive through covers.

At 30/4, the hosts were in a spot with Pujara finding himself alone in the middle, tasked to bail the team out.

The in-form Saurashtra man played two exquisite off drives to Shanaka before taking on the same bowler a few overs later for another four.

Pujara looked supreme on the off side, hitting Shanaka and Lahiru Gamage for two more boundaries past mid-off area.

He was equally comfortable on the backfoot, punching a short and wide Karu.

While bowling all-rounder Ashwin struggled to settle in, taking a knock on his hand in the 25th over off Lahiru Gamage's bowling before ending his ordeal in the next over. Gamage remained wicketless with figures of 11.5-3-24-0.

Trying to drive a length Shanaka delivery, the right-hander, returning to international cricket after three months, gave an easy catch to Dimuth Karunaratne at backward point.

Later, Wriddhiman Saha, who also looked uncomfortable with the extra bounce on the wicket, went into the break unbeaten on 6 from 22 balls.
