    IND vs SL, 1st Test, Day 3 Live Updates: DROPPED!

    Nissanka survives. Good effort from Shreyas Iyer. Ashwin floats up another outside off, and this one dips on Nissanka as he looks to step out and hit over mid-off. Ends up dragging it much wider than he wants, in the direction of deep square leg, and Iyer, running to his right and diving, can’t quite hold on
