Kandy: India dominated the proceedings on the second day of the third and final Test against Sri Lanka skittling out the hosts in their first innings for 135 runs after posting a mammoth 487 and then restricting them to 19/1 post-imposition of follow-on at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium here on Sunday.
