New Delhi: India got control on the first test being played against Sri Lanka in Galle. The Day 2 saw some outstanding batting performance. The visitors scored 201 runs earlier in the day with Hardik Pandya scoring a fifty to back up the good work of Shikhar Dhawan (190) and Cheteshwar Pujara (153). 

Umesh Yadav got the first breakthrough for India, pacer Mohammed Shami also struck twice with the new ball to set them back as Upul Tharanga played his shots at will. Tharanga got to his fifty but was run out in a bizarre manner. Niroshan Dickwella did not last long enough as Ravichandran Ashwin bowled a really good spell.

Angelo Mathews is once again doing what he can do best, fighting. He scored a fifty but only has tail to follow with no Asela Gunaratne. They are still a long way behind in this Test. It is going to need something really special from them. India will be happy with their work. They will aim to continue the good work and set the game up for the game up for them.

Sri Lanka end Day 2 at 154 for 5, trail India by 446 runs.
