A half-century from Shikhar Dhawan and a breezy 49 from Cheteshwar Pujara led India’s drive for quick second-innings runs and a likely declaration at the Feroz Shah Kotla. At tea on day four, India had extended their lead to 355, with Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma at the crease, having put on 48 at more than a run a ball against Sri Lanka’s spread-out fields.

Having taken the last remaining wicket in the sixth over of the day and secured a 163-run first-innings lead, India came out with clear intent to score quickly. M Vijay, normally so watchful outside off stump, repeatedly looked to drive the new ball on the up, and, having hit two fours in this manner, nicked Suranga Lakmal behind on 9.

Instead of Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane walked in at No. 3, having scored 4, 0, 2 and 1 in his four previous innings in the series. Rahane likes the ball coming on to the bat, so perhaps this was an effort to have him face a harder, newer ball than normal. The experiment didn’t come off. He struggled to middle the ball in his 37-ball innings, as a control percentage of 64 would suggest, and survived two close lbw shouts before holing out while looking to hit Dilruwan Perera over long-on.
