Bad light prevents opener from reaching his ton after bowlers limit Sri Lankans to 425 despite Samaraweera's century.
Quickfire Sehwag underlines good day for India
Samaraweera had reached his century in the final over before lunch, moving from 99 to 104 courtesy of an overthrow as he pushed the ball for a single to square leg but the return to the bowler's end ricocheted off the stumps and sped to the boundary. Sri Lanka lost their last four wickets for 44 runs after lunch with Ishant Sharma ending the innings with the wickets of Ajantha Mendis and Chanaka Welagedara. Sri Lanka lead the series 1-0.
