India vs Sri lanka first test match

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (Reuters) - Opener Malinda Warnapura scored 50 not out as Sri Lanka reached 85-2 at stumps after Wednesday's rain-interrupted first day of the first test against India.

India's new ball bowlers Ishant Sharma and Zaheer Khan claimed a wicket apiece during a single 22-over evening session after rain and a wet outfield delayed the start of play until 1530 local time (1000 GMT).

Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene was unbeaten on 16 when bad light stopped play for the day having added 28 runs for the third wicket with Warnapura.

Warnapura started shakily but scored quickly after playing himself in, hitting six boundaries in his 74-ball innings.

Sharma struck first for India with a lively delivery that bounced steeply and Michael Vandort (three) edged to wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik.

Kumar Sangakkara (12), the world's number one batsman coming into this test series, edged a swinging delivery from left-armer Zaheer Khan to Rahul Dravid at slip.

Both teams went into the game with two spinners including unorthodox Sri Lanka debutant Ajantha Mendis who destroyed India with a haul of six wickets for 13 in the final of the Asia Cup one-day competition earlier this month.
