Sri Lanka complained of poor air quality and hazy condition after two players - Lahiru Gamage and Suranga Lakmal had to go off. Both seemed to be struggling with their breathing.
At the end of the second day's play, Angelo Mathews (57 not out) and Dinesh Chandimal (25 not out) were at the crease for Sri Lanka. Dilruwan Perera contributed 42 for the visiting side.
