Live cricket score, India vs Sri Lanka, 3rd Test, Day 2, Pallekele

Life of a batsman is. you might play 60 balls perfectly and then one ball you get out. The opener was dismissed for 119 off 123 balls when Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal took a stunning catch at the square leg diving to his left off Pushpakumara.

The left-arm unorthodox bowler recorded his first five-wicket haul in Tests while fellow spinner Malinda Pushpakumara took three wickets. "That's how it is". Disappointing that I have not been able to convert that, but I think that will keep me more hungry. "So it's probably a different kind of situation". That works for me. The players today will try their best to save their wickets and score as much as possible for a decent total.

Global Stocks Poised for Weekly Declines
The latest sell-off was the most severe yet, amounting to the biggest single-day drop for the stock market in almost three months. MARKETS OVERSEAS: In Europe, Germany's DAX was down 1 percent, while France's CAC 40 fell 1.4 percent.

"He (Kuldeep) believes in his own ability and believes in deceiving the batsmen with the skill that he has". Some like to do it in singles, with less risk. An over later, Shami bowled it full outside off and Karunaratne prodded and the outside edge went to Saha. He tried to take on the spinner in his first over but failed. "It works for me, and sometimes it doesn't work".

They used to call him Gabbar, and Shikhar Dhawan was more than happy to play long, whether twirling his moustache elaborately or slapping his thigh wrestler style when celebrating milestones. This time he dropped his bat, his helmet and gloves to the ground and gestured two towards the dressing room. "It was a fun thing with the boys". Some thought this was to suggest his second ton in the series but he later hinted at some team secret. "And no, I can't disclose the name!" They came up empty handed as India showed their quality on an unpredictable pitch, ending the session on 134 for no loss. Their body language was good, they held good catches. Whatever credit they must get, they deserve. "He has been bowling consistently on the right spot for them", Dhawan observed. India were 329 for 6 at stumps. India's score was largely due to a cracking start given by Dhawan and Rahul. Wridhiman Saha and Hardik Pandya were at crease with 13 and 1 respectively when stumps were drawn for the day.

Detroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins
Byron Buxton hit a laser shot that just barely cleared the wall in right field - his sixth home run of the year. Miguel Cabrera came out of the game after he singled in the fifth inning, complaining of lower back stiffness.

India did not practice on Friday, but Kohli said they are confident of taking the field on Saturday and are in a "good zone". Myself and Rahul, we played very nicely.

"Those who are performing and playing well should continue to play more games than not, and to be a consistent side we need to have consistency as well", he added.

Wenger Wants Arsenal Star To Be Like Zlatan
Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare couldn't have imagined Wenger would have the Gunners completely abandon center backs. There's so many strikers down the years who have been that backup striker who have played a major part in the season.

"It's not easy to score runs out there and even outfield is not that quick". Dhawan goes for a flat slog-sweep off Pushpakumara. "Let's see how it goes on the third day and we will all know actually, not just me".
