India struggle on second day curtailed by rain

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Sri Lanka reduced India to 74-5 in another day dominated by rain in the first Test at Kolkata.

Only 32.5 overs have been bowled over two days, with medium-pace Dasun Shanaka picking up two wickets in conducive conditions on the second morning before rain forced an early lunch.

Cheteshwar Pujara remains unbeaten on 47, displaying the technique required in such grassy, overcast conditions following his recent stints in English county cricket.

The first day ended with India 17-3 after just 11.5 overs of play before rain intervened at Eden Gardens.
