IND vs SL Pink-Ball Test Highlights: India set Sri Lanka a massive target of 447 runs to win. In response, SL reached 28/1 at Stumps. In the first session, pacer Jasprit Bumrah and R Ashwin picked up two wickets each in the first half an hour to help India bowl Sri Lanka out for 109 and gain a 143-run lead. Bumrah also bagged his maiden five-wicket haul in Tests on home soil. The hosts needed only 5.5 overs to close out the innings. Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal took India's advantage past 180 with ease. Soon after, Agarwal fell prey to Embuldeniya on 22. Then, Hanuma Vihari and Rohit took the hosts to 61/1 at Tea on Day 2, extending the lead by 203 runs. The two batters continue in the same vein by stitching a 56-run stand before Sharma fell on 46 to Dhananjaya de Silva. Then, Vihari was cleaned up by Jayawickrama on 35. Rishabh Pant came in and unleashed fireworks straight away but lost Kohli (13) at the other end. The wicketkeeper-batter went on to smash the fastest Test 50 by an Indian, off 28 balls, before being removed by Jayawickrama. Then Jadeja (10) and Iyer (18*) put on another 15 to take India to 199/5 at Dinner break. The two motored to bring up a half-century stand before Iyer notched up another 50. Jadeja was cleaned up by Fernando on 22. Iyer (67) and Ashwin (13) were the next wickets to fall. Axar Patel (9) was the last wicket to fall before Rohit Sharma declared IND's innings. Bumrah removed Thirimanne on 0 before Mendis (16*) and Karunaratne (10*) played out the rest of the overs of the day.

India vs Sri Lanka: Shreyas Iyer speaks before the start of Day 2
"When I was sitting inside there was drama happening in every over and the thrill was intense. I didn't want to get out defending the ball because there are more chances of getting out that way rather than scoring runs. In my mind the intent had to be positive and that's what I had decided before going out to bat. When the left arm spinner was bowling, there was no mid-wicket and my plan was to step across and see if there's a single because mid-off was also behind. Even if I flash at the ball it had to drop safely. I did not have it (the hundred) in mind, once I reached the 80s, Jassie (Bumrah) was defending the ball really well and I never thought I have to take the single on the 5th-6th ball. It is part and parcel of the game. Today wasn't my day and I have no regrets. When the ball was new, it was swinging and seaming pretty good. We discussed in the dressing room that the fast bowlers are going to play an immense role and that's what we saw."

A fifty that felt like a century- Why Iyer celebrated the way he did
He said at press conference after Day 1:
"I personally felt that fifty was like a century. That's why I celebrated like that. It was like a century feeling for me.
"You saw the players who defended the ball, there was a lot of chance of nicking, and there was variable bounce on that wicket. You can't just play very negatively on that wicket and just keep defending the ball. You've got to have that positive intent when you step out on the field. The wicket is not that great. It's obviously bowler-friendly."

IND vs SL Live: Hanuma Vihari reassuring at no.3
Batting at no.3 for India for the second time in his career, Vihari looked at one with the position. In the first game at Mohali, he hit a well-constructed half-century and in Bengaluru, he looked in control during his knock of 31. Some of his drives were so pleasing to the eyes and so technically sound that it got the great Sunil Gavaskar lavishing praise on him.

IND vs SL: Still no century for Virat Kohli
Former India skipper Virat Kohli looked sufficiently comfortable for a large part of his 48-ball knock. He hit two lovely boundaries and forged a handy stand with Hanuma Vihari as the hosts lost both the openers inside the first 10 overs. Batting on 23, he was undone by low bounce and sharp turn and had to walk back with utter disbelief.
