Abhinav Mukund finally got some runs under his belt as he led India’s second innings with 81 runs before he was out at the stroke of Stumps on Day 3. The gritty inning from the Indian opener was after Virat Kohli decided not to enforce follow-on even after bowling out Sri Lanka for 291 in the first innings. India took a lead of 309 runs and then lost Shikhar Dhawan early and Cheteshwar Pujara before Tea. Rain halted play at that time before Kohli came out with Mukund. Kohli was unbeaten on 76 at close and India were 189/3 with lead of 498.
