India declared the innings once Dhoni completed his century
Score - 726/9 d in 163.3 Overs.
This is the highest test runs scored for India.
Lead of 333 runs. 2 more days to go.
I can smell India's victory here.

And if we can manage to get a wicket in the three overs that the Lankans have to face today, it would be the icing on the cake !

Dhoni gives Bhajji the first over and what he does - starts with middle and leg stump line. Somebody must remind him that he is an off-spinner and will have to bowl an off-stump like to get wickets.

No icing on the cake.
SL- 11/0 in 3 overs @ EOD 3
So almost a fresh innings again for them tomorrow, with a bonus of 11 runs

Just curious - what is the purpose of the completed poll still on this thread?
Can there be a more relevant one?

I think end of the day situation was like SL in doldrums and a defeat seems to be looming large for them. All this despite a valiant century by Sanggakara

I had seldom seen any indian team fielding so badly as today.
Dropped catches and misfielding was the reason we are chasing 200+ now.
I think its SL's match until someone in indian team can bat like a hurricane(sehwag or yuvi)

The fielding problem has been an ongoing one. Even in the ODI series against Australia our fielding was pathetic. It was much better during the tenure of Robin Singh.

What a fabulous innings from Gauti. 50 off 19 balls and all using 'propah' cricket shots. Sad that the rest were unable to take forward such an explosive start.

Gauti has been doing it for some time ... the highlight for me was the 2 sixes hit by Nehra .... 22 of 13 balls ..... Can you believe it ?????
