    Good morning and welcome to our coverage of India vs Sri Lanka 3rd Test Day 3.

New Delhi: Sri Lanka will resume day three’s play on 131 for three. Angelo Mathews is unbeaten on 57 and while Dinesh Chandimal is batting on 25. The Islanders, who were required to be inseparable with bat to maintain a good score, however lost early wickets. On day three they will look to get close to India’s total.

Skipper Virat Kohli’s formidable 243 gave India a massive advantage against Sri Lanka as the visitors were trailing India by 405 runs at the end of Day two of the third and concluding Test at the Feroz Shah Kotla ground. Earlier on day two, India declared the innings at 536/7.

It was Kohli who pummeled the opposition into submission and gave India an upper hand in the Test with his record sixth double ton.

Batting at his home ground, Kohli eased past West Indies’ great Brian Lara, who had hit five Test tons.

In response, opener Dimuth Karunaratne was suspended for a duck by Mohammed Shami.

He was followed by Dhananjaya de Silva, who came to bat at number three, but succumbed to Ishant Sharma’s lethal bowling for just one.

It was Dilruwan Perera and Mathews who then stood firm for the Lankans until Perera (42) was given an lbw on Ravindra Jadeja’s ball.

The hosts are currently leading the series 1-0, and need just a draw to equal Australia and West Indies’ record of nine consecutive Test series wins. (With ANI inputs)
