Team India batter Hanuma Vihari feels it will be an extremely challenging task for Sri Lanka to chase 447 in the second innings although three full days of play are left in pink-ball Test in Bengaluru. India declared their second innings on 303 for 9, setting the Lankans an improbable 447 for victory. The visitors went to stumps at a shaky 28 for 1. Earlier in the day, they were bundled out for 109 in their first innings as Jasprit Bumrah claimed his first five-wicket haul in Tests in India.
