Team India is doing well in the ongoing 3-match Test series against Sri Lanka. With the outstanding performance by Shikhar Dhawan and Pujara, India managed to defeat the hosts by record 304-runs in the first Test match.
Even in the second Test at Colombo, team India is continuing its good form as Puajra and Rahane smashing centuries. Finally, India declared the first innings for 622/9. As soon as the hosts came to bat, Upul Tharanga found himself being dismissed in an unlucky manner by Ravi Ashwin.
It was the second over of Sri Lankan innings when Ashwin stepped up to share the new ball with Mohammad Shami who bowled the first over. Tharanga aimed to strike the ball through midwicket but instead smashed it straight to KL Rahul at short leg. He got the touch and clutched onto it as Upul Tharanga departed for a duck.
More than taking wicket, a special celebration by KL Rahul and captain Virat Kohli caught the eyes of the viewers.
