Live Scores, match updates, commentary: India vs Sri Lanka, 2nd Test, Day 4 at Colombo


India are still 230 runs ahead and if they can bowl out Sri Lanka before the hosts  those many runs, India can claim a win by an innings. After bowling out Sri Lanka for 183 in the first innings and taking a 439 runs, India asked Sri Lanka to follow-on but a 191-run second wicket stand between Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis built a stunning comeback on a pitch that looked like spitting venom. Mendis scored a century before being dismissed five overs before stumps on Day 3. But, Karunaratne remained unbeaten on 92 to see his team go to stumps at 209 for 2 and only 230 runs.
