Earlier in the day, Virat Kohli's men continued their onslaught on the Sri Lankans after opting to bat on Day three, taking a enormous lead of 498 runs. India had smartly advanced to 189/2 before Mukund (81) wasted an opportunity to score a maiden Test ton and a review to call it a day in Galle.

Sri Lanka made a feeble reply.

Sri Lanka had only 10 batsmen because Asela Gunaratne broke his thumb on Thursday. Parera's lone effort couldn't save hosts from getting restricted to under 300.

However, with a lead of 309, Virat Kohli chose to bat once more instead of enforcing the follow on.

Earlier, Perera and Angelo Mathews (83) put on 62 runs for the 6th wicket to avoid their team from the humiliation of batting collapse.

Shikhar Dhawan revealed that he was holidaying with family at Hong Kong and later planned to visit Melbourne before joining the team.

Jadeja sent back last man Lahiru Kumara soon after play resumed as India took a massive first-inning lead of 309 runs. Dhawan passed away 50 before the lunch break.

Cheteshwar Pujara (153, 265b, 13×4) and Ajinkya Rahane (57, 130b, 3×4) looked to continue their overnight partnership, and were batting fluently. Injury to the latter and viral fever to the former meant that both Dhawan and Mukund got to play here, but only one of them made it count.

Sri Lanka's 200 came up in the 57th over, and they almost batted out the first hour without any loss before Mathews chipped a catch off Jadeja straight to Virat Kohli at short cover in the 59th over. Pandya went on to pick up 5 wickets and showed that he had the traits to be a genuine fast-bowling, big-hitting all-rounder. Incidentally, he hit three sixes, and all of them off of short deliveries which he pulled to perfection, casually wondering what all the fuss was about after the rest of the Indian batsmen generally struggled against bouncers, with three batsmen being caught behind to short balls. Perera (92 not out) scored two boundaries and a six in the first six overs. When DRS was pressed in to action, the tracker recommended that the ball would have bounced way over the stumps.

Ravindra Jadeja celebrates taking the wicket.

Allrounder Hardick Pandya, on his test debut, then captured his first test wicket when he bowled out Nuwan Pradeep for 10, adding to his half-century with the bat.

Tharanga's knock came to a cruel end when his bat bounced in the air as he dived to get back in his crease and was run out after prodding Ashwin to Abhinav Mukund at silly point.

Dilruwan, Kumara and Gunathilaka claimed one wicket each.
