India amassed 622 for nine before declaring their first innings and then returned to remove both the Sri Lankan openers to tighten their grip on the second Test on Friday. For the second successive time in the three-match series, India won the toss, elected to bat and amassed 600 or more in their first innings before unleashing their bowlers on their hosts. Like in their comprehensive defeat in the series opener at Galle, Sri Lanka made a feeble reply to finish day two on 50 for two at the Sinhalese Sports Club ground. Indian batsman Ajinkya Rahane said that the Lankans will have a tough job to handle India’s spinners on Day 3 on Saturday. (Video: Sanjjeev Samyal)
