Vijay, Pujara torment Sri Lanka with centuries

India bowled out Sri Lanka at 205

The duo put on an unbeaten 90-run stand for the second wicket after resuming the day on 11-1 in response to Sri Lanka'a modest 205. One expected them to pose problems for Sri Lanka on a mostly lifeless wicket but for it to be so easy that they would put together 209 runs and bat almost the entire day came as a surprise.

Cheteshwar Pujara (121) and Virat Kohli (54) were at the crease at the end of the day's play. Against the pacers, Vijay got to showcase his prowess of playing on the front-foot and did so with much ease in the initial phase of the day.

Both were previously married to their spouses for about 10 years and have two children each from their marriages. Paltrow and Falchuk first met in 2014 on the set of Glee , which he produced alongside Ryan Murphy.

Both Vijay and Pujara slammed their respective centuries on the second day to tilt the match firmly in India's corner. Murali Vijay began Day 2 with a pristine cover drive and spent rest of the day establishing his grace and class on the proceedings.

Right-handed batsman, Murali Vijay has had a roller coaster ride when it comes to finding his feet in Indian cricket. There was another concerted effort from Sri Lanka after lunch but another 26-ball barren spell was broken calmly by singles from these calm batsmen.

Hafiz Saeed is a designated terrorist
Saeed is suspected of masterminding the attack Mumbai in 2008 that killed 166 people. The religious leader is likely to be released later this week, said his counsel.

The two initially took their time, getting their eye in. While Pujara's gradual acceleration continued, Kohli went faster than even Vijay had been. "Obviously, we are in a strong position at the end of the day and I wanted to always contribute for the team and I am happy", Vijay told reporters. There was a scare when Vijay was beaten by Shanaka and Sri Lanka reviewed for caught behind, but replays suggested there was no nick. Pujara meanwhile began to lay the groundwork for another typically-solid innings that would tire out the opposition and please the true Test match connoisseurs.

With Niroshan Dickwella and Chandimal out in the middle and the total on 160 for 4, Sri Lanka had an opportunity to post a decent score, butDickwella's dismissal triggered a collapse as the tourists lost six wickets for 45 runs. Vijay's wicket brought Kohli into the field. Herath, bowling with the new ball, didn't fare any better, Kohli continuing his date with the boundary ropes, drilling a square drive.

The Saurashtra right-hander, who came in to bat on Friday at the fall of the other opener Lokesh Rahul, provided the stability to the Indian innings, as he faced 92 balls for his knock, comprising five boundaries.
