India bowls Sri Lanka out for 205 in Napur test

Sunday, November 26, 2017

COLOMBO - Ravichandran Ashwin spearheaded a dominant bowling display by India, taking four wickets as they dismissed Sri Lanka for 205 after the visitors had won the toss and opted to bat on the first day of the second Test in Nagpur on Friday.

The off-spinner took 4-67 while paceman Ishant Sharma and left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja shared the remaining six wickets as the touring side were bundled out in the final session on a greenish wicket.

Sri Lanka, who succumbed by a 9-0 margin across all formats at home against India earlier this year, were finally given something to cheer about when Lahiru Gamage dismissed opener Lokesh Rahul for seven as the hosts went to stumps on 11-1.

Murali Vijay, who returned at the top of the batting order after opener Shikhar Dhawan opted out of the match for personal reasons, and Cheteshwar Pujara were both unbeaten on two at the close of play.

Half-centuries from Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal, who top-scored with 57, and opener Dimuth Karunaratne (51) gave Sri Lanka's innings some respectability after they had lost Sadeera Samarawickrama and Lahiru Thirimanne cheaply before lunch.
