india vs sri lanka

Kandy (Sri Lanka), Aug 13: This is the shortest innings Sri Lanka have ever played against India. No wonder Virat Kohli had no hesitation enforcing the follow-on. Sri Lanka will bat again. 

India have dismissed Sri Lanka for 135 and have enforced the follow on. Earlier, Hardik Pandya scored a century to power India to 487.

Skipper Dinesh Chandimal on 13 and wicketkeeper-batsman Niroshan Dickwella on 14 were at the crease with the hosts still trailing India by 426 runs in Pallekele. All-rounder Pandya remained the star of the day so far with his 96-ball 108 that propelled India to a challenging first innings total after the visitors resumed on 329-6.

Earlier, India were dismissed for 487 shortly after lunch with opener Shikhar Dhawan (119) and all-rounder Hardik Pandya (108) scoring handsomely for the visitors.
