India set for win

India is poised for victory in the second Test against Sri Lanka at stumps on the fourth day in New Delhi.

Set a massive target for victory of 436, Sri Lanka 123-5 and requires another 313 runs for an unlikely first Test match victory on Indian soil.

Sri Lanka will be looking to bat through the final day to save the Test, with its run rate just 2.4 runs per over.

Earlier, Indian captain Rahul Dravid declared his team's second innings seven overs after lunch when reaching 375-6, giving India's bowling attack more than four sessions to achieve victory on a pitch uneven in bounce.
Yuvraj Singh made an undefeated 77 (10 fours) while Mahendra Dhoni scored an aggressive 51 not out (52 balls) in a 104-run partnership for the seventh wicket.

Yuvraj was only recalled to the side when usual opener Virender Sehwag withdrew with a throat infection before the match.

Dhoni, playing in only his second Test as India wicketkeeper, struck five fours and two sixes in his first Test century.

The first Test in Chennai ended in a draw while the third and final match starts in Ahmedabad on Sunday.
