Shanaka comes up with a scrambled seam, the ball comes in and beats Ashwin who is beaten and middle stump is knocked out.
On day four, Indian openers Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul helped hosts capitalise a good score of 171-1 in their second innings.
three, Niroshan Dickwella and captain Dinesh Chandimal began the fourth morning under sunny skies and took Sri Lanka to 200.
Unfortunately, Dhawan gave his wicket to Shanaka and the left-handed opening batsman had to depart for 94, felling just six runs short of his 7th Test century.
India will start their last day of the Kolkata Test with Rahul (73) and Cheteshwar Pujara (2) batting at the crease.
