THAT’S LUNCH ON DAY 2!
A dominant session for India so far. Ravindra Jadeja reached his century just after R Ashwin departed. But it’s been a brilliant team performance so far. India continue to pile the runs as Sri Lanka struggle.
Live Score; IND: 468/7
100 UP FOR JADEJA!
What an innings this has been from Jadeja. He reaches his second Test ton with a single. Flat, on a length, gives him width, Jadeja opens the face, takes the single. He brings out his trademark sword celebration.
Live Score; IND: 463/7
OUT! EDGED AND GONE!
A sharper one. Ashwin still tries to pull it but this one gets high enough, head high, to take the top edge through to Dickwella.

Some problems with Jadeja it seems. The physio is out there treating him on the right wrist. He is ready to bat now. Perhaps a little cramp there.
Jadeja, Ashwin Continue Good Work
