Colombo: Lokesh Rahul celebrated his comeback with a half-century as India posted 101/1 at lunch on the first day of the second cricket Test against Sri lanka at the Sinhalese Sports Club here on Thursday.

Rahul was batting on 52 with the in-form Cheteshwar Pujara unbeaten on 14 at the other end when the teams went in for the break.

In-form opener Shikhar Dhawan was the only wocket to fall in the morning session. Dhawan made a quick 35 runs off 37 balls before being trapped leg before by Dilruwan Perera.

Perara, the only successful bowler among the hosts so far, returned figures of 1/11 in his four overs.

Brief scores:

India (first innings): 101/1 (LOkesh Rahul 52 batting, Shikhar Dhawan 35; Dilruwan Perera 1/11) vs Sri Lanka.
