India tighten grip on second test in Kanpur

5:41 am on 26 November 2009

The Indian batsman Rahul Dravid scored his side's third century and the 28th of his career as the home side tightened their grip on the second cricket test against Sri Lanka in Kanpur.

Dravid made a superb 144 taking him into 4th place on the all-time scorers list, and India were finally dismissed for 642.

At stumps Sri Lanka were 66 for 1 after a nightmare start when they lost their in-form opener Tillakaratne Dilshan for a first ball duck.
