Kumar Sangakkara cracked a solid 107 not out to help Sri Lanka gain a slender advantage over injury-hit India in the crucial third and final Test on Saturday.

The left-hander was involved in two valuable partnerships as the hosts reached 251/6 in their first innings at stumps on the second day in reply to India's 249. Prasanna Jayawardene was unbeaten on one.

Sangakkara put on 95 for the third wicket with night-watchman Chaminda Vaas (47) and 60 for the fifth with Thilan Samaraweera (35) on an absorbing day of cricket.

Sangakkara rarely erred in shot-selection during his long innings, driving, cutting and pulling remarkably well on the way to his 17th hundred in 76 Tests. He has so far struck 11 fours in his 226-ball knock.
