India still have three batsmen left in Jadeja, Ashwin and Jayant Yadav and getting to the 500-run mark won’t be difficult. Jadeja is batting on 45 while Ashwin scored 10 off 11 with Jayant yet to bat. Add Mohammed Shami and Bumrah’s batting skills to the mix, getting another 150-odd run looks achievable.

Even though the pitch has offered assistance to spinners, Sri Lanka were not able to grab that with both hands. Lasith Embuldeniya looked dangerous but Rishabh Pant took him to cleaners hammering 22 runs in one over. Other than him, Suranga Lakmal, Vishwa Fernando, Lahiru Kumara and Dhananjaya de Silva all bagged a wicket each but all of them were expensive and Indian batters looked comfortable going against them.
