India were 234/8 in their second innings at tea on the fourth day of the final cricket Test against Sri Lanka on Monday. India’s lead currently stands at 345.

India strengthened their hold on the third and final cricket Test against Sri Lanka, extending their lead to 243 by reaching 132 for five at lunch on Day 4 of the match on Monday. Rohit Sharma, 50 off 72 balls, notched up his fourth Test half century as the visitors negotiated the opening session of 37 overs on a wicket which seemed to be easing out.

Stuart Binny (38) and Naman Ojha (11) were the two unbeaten batsmen at the crease when the lunch break was taken.

India started their day at 21/3 in this second innings, with a lead of 132 runs, and Virat Kohli (21) and Rohit were the unbeaten batsmen at the crease.

While the almost new ball was still doing something, Dhammika Prasad (2-44) and Nuwan Pradeep (3-33) were unable to get purchase similar to the past three morning sessions.
