After India decided to declare at the team score of 622/9, ace spinner Ravichandran Ashwin struck twice to pull the match firmly in India's corner.
In just the second over of the Sri Lankan innings, Upul Thranga hit an Ashwin delivery straight at KL Rahul — who was fielding at short leg — and somehow the ball stuck in his body and he was able to get hold of it. Skipper Kohli celebrated the first scalp of the innings by doing the 'dab' with Rahul.
Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis tried to steady the innings but putting on a 33-run stand for the second wicket. But even this partnership didn't last long as Karunaratne became Ashwin's second scalp of the day.
The off-spinner found the outside edge of the southpaw's bat and Ajinkya Rahane took an easy catch in the slip. Dinesh Chandimal and Kusal Mendis then joined forced in the middle to end the day without suffering anymore hiccups.
