'Feels good coming out of hard situation to win the Test'

Cheteshwar Pujara breaks Sachin's record

Despite being bowled out to just 183 runs, Sri Lanka showed some resilience to avoid the innings defeat against India.

Sri Lanka will take a modicom of confidence into that series from a second innings resurgence that was built around the 191-run stand between Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis, who fell for 110 Saturday.

Subsequently, Tharanga's opening partner Dimuth Karunaratne (25) had a few snorters as he struck two boundaries and held his end well for the most part before offering an outside edge to Ashwin for his second wicket. Night-watchman Malinda Pushpakumara stood still at the batting crease. The host Sri Lanka finished day 2 at 50-2 and both the wickets were taken by spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.

Ashwin was ably assisted by other bowlers Shami (2wickets), Jadeja (2 wickets) Yadav (1 wicket) as the Lankan batsmen struggled on their home ground at Colombo.

Roy's father, Conrad Roy Jr, said before sentencing: "I can not being to describe the despair I feel over the loss of my son. Bozzi wrote to the judge, "The defense said it was inevitable, that he would take his life eventually with or without her".

Jadeja dismissed Dhananjaya de Silva for a golden duck and Mohammed Shami came up with a two-wicket over to leave the Sri Lankan innings in tatters. This is also the 8th consecutive Test match victory for the Indian cricket team under the captaincy of Virat Kohli while second Test series win in Sri Lanka.

Rahane was out stumped by Niroshan Dickwella for spinner Malinda Pushpakumara's maiden worldwide wicket.

Sri Lanka is still 230 runs behind India in the second innings. Furthermore, it gave them an unassailable 2-0 series lead going into the third Test, which begins on August 12 in Pallekele. After Karunaratne and Pushpakumara started the proceedings on Sunday, India picked up two early wickets. "We really feel good as a team that we're able to win consistently right now, but we realise that it's very important to keep carrying on the same way as well".

Mendis, who hit his third Test hundred, played an attacking game as he smashed 17 boundaries before letting go of his hard work with a catch to wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha.

Dilip Kumar's health not good, says doctor
Bollywood veteran actor Dilip Kumar's health update was given by Doctor Jalil Parkar late on Friday evening. He was admitted to hospital on Wednesday, where his condition has reportedly worsened. "He is stable".

The other all-rounder had the flawless game after scoring a fine half-century in the first innings and then followed it up with a five-wicket haul in the second innings to hand India the win.

Ravichandran Ashwin finally separated the batsmen when nightwatchman Pushpakumara went for a weird reverse slog, only to have his stump pegged back. As a team, I think we also played good cricket. Umesh Yadav, meanwhile, chipped in with one.

The big moment of the session came in the 66th over when K L Rahul dropped Karunaratne (then on 95) at short leg off Jadeja, which didn't prove costly in the long run.

The rest of the Lankan batsmen could not last on a pitch which was taking quite a bit of turn as the Indians tightened their grip on the match.
