Tharindu Kaushal took 5-134, but they were expensive land, as the visitors looked good on top . However, after the top order collapsed the second time, Chandimal struck back with a brilliant 162 to put Sri Lanka in the initiative and sets a target of India 176 to win. It may have seemed an attainable total, but the Indians collapsed against Rangana Herath, who took 7-48 and rolled out 112 tourists, leaving defeated them by 63 runs.
Things got even worse for the away side in recent days, too, as Dhawan has been sent home with a broken hand, according to ESPN Cricinfo. Stuart Binny has been called up as cover for a squad struggling with injury problems, although Murali Vijay could be available after some hamstring problems.
Everything is a little worrisome for India, which will face a team from Sri Lanka high on confidence and in a prime position to secure a win in the series.
