If you are an Indian fan it is an extremely happy picture to see India finish 100 runs ahead with a rampaging Kohli and sedate Pujara walk off the field. But, if you are Sri Lanka fan then the horrors of the Test series in Lanka might have resurfaced. 

Day 2 completely belonged to India with the home team taking a comfortable 107-run lead with eight wickets in the bank.

Have a fun Saturday night and hope to see you tomorrow for a lazy Sunday. Thank you for joining us, we will be here for Day 3, tune into our coverage at 8 AM onwards. Ciao.

Watch our correspondent Devdutt Kshirsagar review second day's play between India and Sri Lanka:

16:48 (IST)

One has batted the whole day. The other for only 1 hour or so. But both have impacted the innings. Pujara did frustrate the Lankan bowlers but India would’ve been slightly disappointed had the lead been under 100 runs. Kohli ensured that that doesn’t happen with a brisk half century. It was a day of cricket Sri Lanka would like to forget as soon as possible. It was Indian domination throughout the 90 overs.

India made sure that they will not bat again most probably in this Test. Sri Lankan bowlers lacked planning particularly Dilruwan Perera while Vijay made a century on his return and augmented Indian skipper's quandaries, Pujara played like Pujara and scored another ton. And Virat Kohli is also looking good for another ton here.

Raised his bat half heartedly, more so because he wanted to acknowledge the crowd. He is hungry for more. He wants more. Kohli’s 15th Test fifty!

India vs Sri Lanka, 2nd Test Day 2: Pujara collects a single off the second delivery of the final over of Day 2, guiding it towards the off side. Kohli rolls his wrists off the fifth delivery, placing it wide of short midwicket to collect his sixth boundary.

Day 1 report: India lost opener KL Rahul to end the opening day of the second cricket Test at 11/1 after bowling out Sri Lanka for 205 in the final session at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium here on Friday.

Opener Murali Vijay (2 not out) and No.3 Cheteshwar Pujara (2 not out) were at the crease when the umpires dislodged the bails for the day.

For the visitors, paceman Lahiru Gamage picked up the solitary wicket of Rahul, who got an inside edge back onto his stumps after trying to flirt with a delivery outside the off-stump.

Rahul started the Indian response on a positive note, getting off the mark with a boundary through mid-off before going into a shell, which saw him consume 13 deliveries for his brief knock.

Earlier, Indian spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja wreaked havoc, sharing seven wickets to bowl out Sri Lanka for 205 in their first innings.

Ashwin, who went wicketless in the first two sessions, broke the backbone of the Lankan innings by removing skipper Dinesh Chandimal, who top-scored with a patient 122-ball 57 before adding three more wickets to return with figures of 4/67.

Left-arm spinner Jadeja complemented the off-spinner well, finishing with 3/56 while veteran paceman Ishant Sharma also picked up three wickets giving away 37 runs in his 14 overs.

Resuming the final session at 151/4, the tourists found the going tough and lost wickets at regular intervals with their last six wickets falling for just 54 runs.

Besides Chandimal, opener Dimukh Karunaratne (51 from 147; 6x4) and stumper Niroshan Dickwella (24 from 30; 4x4) were the only other batsmen who managed to provide some resistance to the Indian spin duo.

The series is currently squared at 0-0 after the drawn opening Test at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Highlights, India vs Sri Lanka 3rd ODI at Colombo, Full Cricket Score: Fernando shines as hosts win by three wickets

India vs Sri Lanka, 3rd ODI Cricket Match Highlights Ind vs SL Live Score Updates: Dhawan appears to have collected a blinder in the slips at the start of Chahar’s final over, but the ball’s deflected off Mendis’ thigh, Dharmasena spotting it early and shaking his head. Was an excellent delivery from the young leggie nevertheless. Mandis collects a single off the second ball, and Karunaratne — who had smashed an unbeaten 44 in the previous game — is stumped thanks to some swift glove work by Samson two balls later. New batsman Dananjaya though, swats the ball through extra cover for a boundary — which is also a no-ball — and collects a single in the free hit. Asalanka then collects a single with a sweep, as Sri Lanka win by three wickets to collect some vital World Cup Super League points. India, win the three-match ODI series 2-1!
