Sri Lanka clawing their way back in this session

14:43 local, 29 overs 101 runs 3 wickets: That's the summary of the session. Arguably the best session for Sri Lanka on day 1 in this series. They have shown a lot of intent, threw themselves everywhere on the field and troubled the Indian batsmen more often than not.
It looked all serene until Pushpakumara came onto bowl. India could have been better off had the openers got used to his pace and lines; but KL Rahul couldn't abort his natural instincts - which is to carry the momentum and attack. 
And that cost India his wicket and the opening Sri Lanka needed. A rare failure for Pujara, second hundred for Dhawan. More thrills and spills to unfold in the final session.
