Rain again comes to rescue team India on day 2 of Kolkata test. India loses two-wicket on day two.
No other batsman except Pujara faces the tight line and length of Sri Lankan pacer. On day two, Shanaka takes both the wickets. Firstly he takes Rahane and then all-rounder Ashwin. Both batsman score 4 runs each.
The conditions are good for fast bowlers. Earlier, Sri Lankan captain wins the toss and decided to bowl first on the green top of Eden Garden. Sri Lankan bowlers did not disappoint his captain especially Lakmal who takes all three wickets on day 1.
Lakmal takes wicket of KL Rahul on the very first ball of the test match. He later clean bowled Dhawan and also takes the wicket of Indian captain Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli did not open his account and score a rare zero in the series opener test.
Weather is still not looking good for the rest of the match and there is the strong possibility of the draw here in Kolkata.
India scores 74 runs on day two. Cheteshwar Pujara still there in the crease along with Saha. Both batsmen want to score as many runs for their team to give their team a respectful total.
Sri Lanka needs to take early wickets on day three especially Pujara if they really want to win this test match in Kolkata.
