India on commanding position in 3rd Test

Pammachio Corsino | 14 Agosto, 2017, 20:02

Hardik Pandya slammed his maiden century while Kuldeep Yadav picked a four wicket haul as India bowled out Sri Lanka for 135 runs and enforced follow-on in the second day of the final Test in Pallekele. Mohammed Shami dismissed both openers as the hosts reached 61 for four at tea, trailing India by 426 runs and looking well on target to be swept 3-0 in the series.

Shikhar Dhawan continued his golden run but a rare flop show from the famed middle-order saw Sri Lanka restrict India to 329 for 6 in Pallekele on the first day of third cricket Test.

Skipper Dinesh Chandimal, who made 36, provided some resistence during his 65-run fifth-wicket stand with Angelo Mathews.

The match will remembered for India's Hardik Pandya hitting his maiden global century, scoring 108 off just 96 balls, while he also took a record 26 runs off one over from left-arm spinner Malinda Pushpakumara.

Captain Virat Kohli (11 batting) and Ajinkya Rahane (3) were at the crease.

With the first innings score stretched to 487, it was time for the Indian bowlers to take centerstage.

Legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar appreciated team India's performance and wished them good luck for the one-day series.

Celebration style: Before the first day of this game, Shikhar (Dhawan), KL (Rahul) and I were sitting and we were like "if he (Dhawan) scores a hundred he will celebrate in this manner".

With nine wickets down, Pandya started thrashing the Sri Lankan bowlers all around the park.

Pakistan's Wasim Akram, Kiwi left-arm spinner Daniel Vettori and India leg spinner Anil Kumble are on the third spot with 30 wicket apiece to their names.

But they could only add 10 more runs to their overnight partnership as Saha was caught at gully off Vishwa Fernando (2-87) off the 9th ball of the morning.

"Shami and Umesh have done really well in the last home season as well for us, both with the new ball and old ball and that is the reason we backed them in the series". With six men back in the hut, Wriddhiman Saha and Hardik Pandya are India's last hope to take the side to a strong total. By the time, Pandya was picked in the Test team previous year during the home series, a lot of criticism came from the fraternity. Shami then sent back Kusal Mendis in his next over to put the Sri Lankans in deep trouble as the teams went to lunch with Sri Lankan struggling at 82 for 4.
