Sri Lanka has scored 312-2 against India after the end of day 1 in 2nd Test

With scoring 312 for 2 at the end of day one of the second Test match against India at the Sinhalese Sports Club Ground in Colombo, Sri Lanka has almost taken the control of the match. They have proved that SSC is a lucky cricket ground for the host team, Sri Lanka. Two brilliant centuries from Kumar Sangakkara and Tharanga Paranavitana put Sri Lanka in charge on the opening day and it remained the fans their dutiful job in Galle. Now, Sri Lanka is looking to make a huge total ahead of the touring side and thus ensuring their series victory with one match left at hand.

Winning the toss, Sri Lankan skipper, Kumar Sangakkara, decided to bat first which was proved to be a right decision later. Opening pair Tharanga Paranavitana and Tillakaratne Dilshan made a good start and shared 99 runs partnership in the first wicket stand. Dilshan played his natural game and scored a 42-ball 54, including 10 boundaries. His wicket left Sri Lanka 99-1 in 18.1 overs.

No doubt, the dismissal of Tillakaratne Dilshan gave India some glimmer of hope as the touring team is expecting to make their bounce back with a victory in the 2nd test match. Their glimmer of hope started becoming faded by a brilliant counter-attack from Kumar Sangakkara. In the second wicket partnership with Paranavitana, Sangakkara added 174.

Scoring a solid 100 from 221 balls, Tharanga Paranavitana became the second victim of Indian bowlers. Kumar Sangakkara scored unbeaten 130 while Mahela Jayawardene was not out on 13.

For India, Pragyan Ojha and Ishant Sharma took one wicket apiece. Harbhajan Singh led the inexperienced bowling line up with more responsibility. However, he could not put any pressure over the opponent team. Let’s see if he can do anything next day with the ball.
