India vs Srilanka Day 2
The day was clear and the match started 30minutes earlier. Srilankans Mahela Jayawardene and Warnapura started from where they had left. Both played well and carved out brilliant centuries. Warnapura scored 115 off 202 balls with the help of 14 4's and finally got out off the bowling off Harbhajan Singh. So, when it looked that Indians could make a decent comeback, Samaraweera joined hands with J'wardene and both made sure that Indians never had any chance to come back in this match. J'wardene scored a masterful 136 and was scalped by Ishant Sharma. But by then, the damage had already been done for India. Samaraweera was unbeaten on 111 with Dilshan giving him company on 20. Srilanka were 422-4 at stumps on day 2.
