New Delhi: Team India's bowlers left Sri Lanka staring at a huge defeat and a series whitewash after another shambolic batting performance saw the hosts being bundled out for 135 in their first innings in the third and final Test on Sunday.

Dimuth Karunaratne was unbeaten on 12 with nightwatchman Malinda Pushpakumara yet to score.
