After putting on a staggering 622 runs on the board, the Indians have strengthened their grip over the second Test match. The Sri Lankan lineup looked shaky again as they find themselves under immense pressure once again. The deep Indian batting line up was up to their very best as they registered the second 600 plus total of the series. The bowlers followed it up with an equally brilliant performance to end the second day’s play at the SSC stadium.

After dismissing the batsman in spectacular fashion Rahul did an Imran Tahir, as he ran a notable distance in sheer joy and disbelief. Skipper Virat Kohli also looked in cloud 9 to get such an early breakthrough. Rahul and Kohli combined to perform the ever-so-popular ‘dab’ to put an end to the dramatic celebration.
