Skipper Dinesh Chandimal and former skipper Angelo Mathews led Sri Lanka’s fightback with defiant centuries but another late collapse left India in command.
Mathews (111) and Chandimal (147 not out) put on 181 for the fourth wicket before the Indian bowlers struck back in the final session, leaving the visitors 356 for nine, still trailing by 180.
Sri Lanka 356 for 9 (Chandimal 147*, Mathews 111, Ashwin 3-90) trail India 536 for 7 dec by 180 runs.
