Pujara unbeaten on 101, India 220-7 in 3rd test

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) -- Opener Cheteshwar Pujara battled through to his seventh test hundred as India went to tea at 220-7 on day two of the third test against Sri Lanka on Saturday.

Sri Lanka seamer Dhammika Prasad caused the biggest damage for India, taking four wickets for 65 runs.

Pujara, brought in to replace injured Murali Vijay, spent more than five and a half hours at the crease and scored his runs off 219 deliveries, including nine boundaries. But his partners have failed to stay with him to build big partnerships.

India started after lunch on 119-4 and Prasad, having dismissed Rohit Sharma in the last ball before the break, struck in his first ball of the session -- trapping Stuart Binny lbw for a golden duck.

The three-test series is tied 1-1.
