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

India's captain Virat Kohli celebrates with teammates after winning the second Test match against Sri Lanka

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.

Trump Sparks Backlash for Blaming Violence on 'Many Sides'
A 32-year-old woman was killed and at least nine others injured when a vehicle barreled down a street crowded with pedestrians. Virginia's physical violence should not obscure the racially motivated political violence that Trump's presidency feeds on.

"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.

Olivier Giroud says courageous Arsenal never gave up against Leicester City
Arsenal have made a "huge breakthrough" in contract negotiations with playmaker Mesut Ozil , according to a recent report. It's only the second time in eight seasons that Arsene Wenger's side have secured three points in their opening fixture.

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.

Guam posts 'in case of emergency' fact sheet after North Korea threat
It is about 2,200 miles (3,500 km) southeast of North Korea, much closer than it is to any of the United States. Supreme Court ruled same-sex marriage was legal throughout the U.S., including all its territories.

"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".
