0 Come India's bowling, and all the murmurs about how this pitch a sloth-slow stood buried. Ashwin opened the attack with Shami, and got the new ball to turn and bounce, carving a Colombo exorcism for the left-handers in the middle. He's taken two so far but don't rule out more. Plenty more, with such a trusted camaraderie with Jadeja threatening a glorious redux. Join us for the 'moving day' tomorrow; till then, ta-ta!
0 Stumps, Day 2 - 05:02pm local: The only thing Sri Lanka were good at today was the over-rate, which means that we're only two minutes into overlay. Overnight centurions, Pujara and Rahane, fell in the first session but India still racked up a 600+ total, their second in two Test matches on this tour. All that thanks to fifties from Saha, Jadeja and Ashwin, who rallied past the 2000-run mark in Tests.
19.6 Ashwin to Kusal Mendis, no run, blocks it from the crease. That's it
19.5 Ashwin to Kusal Mendis, FOUR, heaves it away. Sits low and takes this full ball for a boundary through deep mid-wicket. Chandimal's aggression has certainly rubbed over
19.4 Ashwin to Kusal Mendis, no run, some turn from a length, back-foot block
19.3 Ashwin to Chandimal, 1 run, time for a flat legspinner that turns a touch from middle-stump. Worked to mid-wicket
19.2 Ashwin to Kusal Mendis, leg byes, 1 run, possibly some glove on this. Nah, off the thigh here. Turns in, and deflects wide of leg slip
19.1 Ashwin to Kusal Mendis, FOUR, doesn't middle the slog-sweep but he's dragged it away, playing with the turn, through square leg. Most fielders are in, so safe once you clear them. That is if you're able to
0 Four men around the bat here, Ashwin from over the wicket
0 Two minutes left in the day and we have an over to bowl. Ashwin will take his time to bowl the last over of the day. Wouldn't have bet the same on Jadeja
18.6 Jadeja to Chandimal, no run, pushes this overpitched delivery to cover
18.5 Jadeja to Chandimal, no run, lunges forward to keep this out in the fourth-stump channel
18.4 Jadeja to Chandimal, no run, coming in with the arm and blocked with soft hands
18.3 Jadeja to Chandimal, no run, good, late leave here. Hauls his bat up and over his front pad, that's nicely outside the line of off
18.2 Jadeja to Chandimal, no run, opens the defence to point
18.1 Jadeja to Chandimal, no run, now the top layer again. I can spot it from 10K miles. 'Turf being taken along with the ball,' says Murali on air. Spits up and beats Chandimal by a long way
0 2 overs left in the day, meaning %$#&* overs of spin remain from India's spin-twins
17.6 Ashwin to Kusal Mendis, no run, flights this one and dips it on Kusal Mendis's defence
17.5 Ashwin to Kusal Mendis, no run, turn and bounce from outside off here. And taking the inside-edge on the pad, only to fall short of the leg-slip fielder
17.4 Ashwin to Kusal Mendis, no run, slow this time, making Kusal Mendis wait on the forward defence
17.3 Ashwin to Kusal Mendis, no run, normal offbreak, blocked
17.2 Ashwin to Kusal Mendis, no run, carrom ball. And he gets the line right on off-stump, when mostly, he tends drifting it down for a right-hander. Kusal Mendis gets across and blocks
17.1 Ashwin to Kusal Mendis, no run, turning in from a fifth stump line and defended off the back foot
16.6 Jadeja to Chandimal, no run, jabs a front-footed single to cover but the point fielder has run across and cut the single off
16.5 Jadeja to Chandimal, no run, now this drifts in a touch but turns away. Soft outside edge here between the slips and silly point
16.4 Jadeja to Chandimal, no run, gets his front leg out and drills this into the off-side. Good indrift on this ball from Jadeja
16.3 Jadeja to Chandimal, no run, skids on and is blocked
