Sinhalese Sports Club, Colombo, Sri Lanka

India won by an innings and 53 runs

  Commentary

  • That's all, ladies and gents from us. The third Test of the series is almost a week away. Till then, bye-bye and have a good time.

  • Virat Kohli: The way the wicket behaved when Sri Lanka batted first and the big lead after first innings, we enforced the follow on. But I am not a big fan of that. I don't want 150 on the board and wicket turning square in the fourth innings. As a team, we look to dominate all the sessions, but you expect the teams to come out like that in the international cricket. But I am actually happy that we went through a difficult phase as well. It doesn't let you be complacent. Saha is the best keeper in this format. He is very safe behind the stump. Pujara and Rahane are our best Test batters, KL batted well, Jaddu too getting runs down the order, Pandya too bowling well with the ball.

  • Dinesh Chandimal: You cannot control the toss but we were outplayed with the bat and the ball, they batted brilliantly in the first innings. So credit to them. But we fought well and played very good cricket in the second innings. Unfortunately, Angelo doesn't bowl at the moment, so it's difficult to get the right balance.

  • Ravindra Jadeja (MoM): In first innings, the ball wasn't turning much, but when we came on to bowl, there was some turn from the middle of the pitch. I think Mendis played really well. As a team, we also played some good cricket, needed to change our line and length and also field placement to counter the sweep.

  • Player of the match - Ravindra Jadeja

  • India win by an innings and 53 runs, with more than four sessions to spare. Karunaratne played a brilliant innings of 141 but once he got, others couldn't resist in the same manner. Jadeja picked his ninth five-wicket haul, while Ashwin and Pandya finished with two each. India now has won eight consecutive Test series.

  • Here's R Kaushik's report for the Day 1:

  • India in the box seat after Pujara Rahane tons

    Sri Lanka reduce visiting side to 1333 before the two centurions stitch together an unbroken 211 run stand to end the day on 3443

  • Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the second Test between Sri Lanka and India at SSC, Colombo. India would like to build on the strong start their batsmen provided on Day 1, while Sri Lanka will expect some quick wickets. Stay tuned, play starts in around 25 minutes.

  • The day belongs to India, no doubt. After openers provided a quick start of 56, India didn't look back. Sri Lanka got rid of Rahul and Kohli in quick succession but Pujara (128*) once again showing his penchant for long innings held one end and put together 211 runs off just 307 balls with Rahane, who also brought up his ninth hundred and was unbeaten on 103 at the stumps as India amassed 344 for the loss of just three wickets on a pitch which wasn't that easy to bat on. Sri Lanka, despite having four spinners, failed to stop the flow of runs. Moreover, Pradeep went off the field with a niggle just four balls after the new ball was taken. Sri Lanka would like some quick wickets tomorrow morning while India would like to build on the great start they got today. That's all from us for today. See you all tomorrow morning.

  • Representing India for 50 Tests will be a proud moment Pujara

    With landmark match approaching batsman reflects on the highs lows and significant moments of his career so far

  • Dinesh Chandimal: Much better now. It was a tough time for me and my family last ten days, but much better now. India played very good cricket in Galle but you have to take positives. Our batters got good starts. I think the bowlers need to stick to their plans. Looks like a dry surface, we also wanted to bat first but you cannot control the toss. Three changes. Dhanushka (Gunathilaka) and (Lahiru) Kumara sit out. Myself and Dhananjaya (de Silva) come in. (Malinda) Pushpakumara is making his debut.

  • Virat Kohli: Always feels good to win the toss. We'll bat first. The pitch looks good and there is enough grass to keep it together. We are gonna make it most of winning the toss and batting first. We have recovered well and same time had a really good intense practice session. We are well prepared just like the first Test. KL Rahul comes in for Abhinav Mukund. Shikhar played an impact innings and was Man of the Match. You have to consider all those things. Abhinav too understands the dynamics of our team.

  • India Won the Toss & Elected to Bat

  • Russel Arnold's pitch report: Win the toss and bat first. Some areas which could turn into roughs later on and spinners may come into play big time.

  • Hello and welcome to the second Test between Sri Lanka and India at Sinhalese Sports Club, Colombo. India won the first Test comfortably by 304 runs, but Sri Lanka will feel buoyant by the inclusion of Dinesh Chandimal. India too will have the services of KL Rahul at the top, with Abhinav Mukund making way. Here's R Kaushik's match preview, his 100th Test as a reporter:

  • Sri Lanka turn to spin in bid to level series

    Rahul should return to the Indian playing XI which would force Dhawan or more likely Abhinav to go back to the bench

  Full commentary

    R Jadeja to D Chandimal, no run, length ball, comes forward and blocks

  • Hello and welcome to Day 3. India took full control of the Test with Ashwin's twin strikes last evening and would like to build on that whereas Sri Lanka will try to get back into the match. As always, the first will be the key. Here's R Kaushik's match report for Day 2:

  • Ashwin strikes twice after India hit up 6229

    Big contributions from the Indian lower order demoralise Sri Lanka before they lose their openers to end second day on 502

  • Sri Lanka end the Day 2 on 50 for 2 and trail by 572 runs. As predicted, Indian bowlers managed to get more purchase from the wicket. Ashwin removed both the openers early on, though Tharanga would feel that once again he was a bit unlucky. Menids played some slog sweeps to counter the vicious spin both the spinners extracted from the wicket but I am not sure how long he can keep doing that. That's all from us for today. See you tomorrow.

  Full commentary

  • That's all, ladies and gents from us. The third Test of the series is almost a week away. Till then, bye-bye and have a good time.

  • Virat Kohli: The way the wicket behaved when Sri Lanka batted first and the big lead after first innings, we enforced the follow on. But I am not a big fan of that. I don't want 150 on the board and wicket turning square in the fourth innings. As a team, we look to dominate all the sessions, but you expect the teams to come out like that in the international cricket. But I am actually happy that we went through a difficult phase as well. It doesn't let you be complacent. Saha is the best keeper in this format. He is very safe behind the stump. Pujara and Rahane are our best Test batters, KL batted well, Jaddu too getting runs down the order, Pandya too bowling well with the ball.

  • Dinesh Chandimal: You cannot control the toss but we were outplayed with the bat and the ball, they batted brilliantly in the first innings. So credit to them. But we fought well and played very good cricket in the second innings. Unfortunately, Angelo doesn't bowl at the moment, so it's difficult to get the right balance.

  • Ravindra Jadeja (MoM): In first innings, the ball wasn't turning much, but when we came on to bowl, there was some turn from the middle of the pitch. I think Mendis played really well. As a team, we also played some good cricket, needed to change our line and length and also field placement to counter the sweep.

  • Player of the match - Ravindra Jadeja

  • India win by an innings and 53 runs, with more than four sessions to spare. Karunaratne played a brilliant innings of 141 but once he got, others couldn't resist in the same manner. Jadeja picked his ninth five-wicket haul, while Ashwin and Pandya finished with two each. India now has won eight consecutive Test series.

  • Hello and welcome to Day 4 of the second Test between Sri Lanka and India. We saw a much better performance from Sri Lanka in the second innings, though don't forget they are still trailing by 230. Live action only a few minutes away.

  • Two contrasting innings from Sri Lanka. They got all out for just 183 in the first as Ashwin picked his 26th five-wicket haul, whereas they battled hard in the second and are 209 for 2 at the close of Day 3. The pitch too slowed down and batsmen found enough time to adjust to the turn and bounce. Mendis got out for a well-fought 110 - Pandya providing the breakthrough but Karunaratne was still on the crease for an unbeaten 92 with Pushpakumara, the night watchman. That's all from us, guys. See you tomorrow.
