  Commentary

  • Thanks, ladies and gents. That's all from us for the Test series. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. We will be back for the One-Day series. Till then, good bye. See you!

  • Virat Kohli: It's a good day to win for us. Very happy with the overall game. I would say the regulars have performed like they have been doing for last three years. But Hardik is the biggest positive. Jinx and Pujji did well. KL too. Really happy with the overall performance of the team. We are a young side, we look forward to playing Test cricket, every Test match. We like to be proactive in our approach rather than being reactive. We have age on our side and the opportunity to play for five-six years together. (On Sri Lanka) They are a good side, they beat Australia 3-0 here. It's keeping the belief and keep working hard, the results will do come out.

  • Shikhar Dhawan (MoS): Before the series, I was in Hong Kong, enjoying my holidays. I got an opportunity and the things went very well for me. This is my natural game and I am enjoying my batting. I have to keep doing the hard work and keep scoring runs. (On the competition) That's very good sign for Indian cricket and keeps me on my toes.

  • Dinesh Chandimal: You cannot control the toss. Credit goes to India, they played some outstanding cricket. It's part of the team. Both batting and bowling were below par throughout the series. They scored 600 in both the Tests, so we decided to go with five bowlers. Our batting as well as bowling, you have to be more patient. If we can do that. We have very talented players, but we need to concentrate on our batting and bowling.

  • Hardik Pandya (MoM): I am glad that I got my first hundred here. I knew I can play my shots. I backed my instincts. I had some targets in my mind what as a team we can achieve. It's a pretty amazing team and everyone backs me to do well.

  • India won the series 3-0.

  • Player of the series - Shikhar Dhawan

  • Player of the match - Hardik Pandya

  • India win the match as well as the series, by 3-0. It's the first time they have whitewashed an opponent away from home in a minimum of three-Test series. This is also the second time Sri Lanka have been whitewashed at home, first being against Australia in 2004.

  • Sri Lanka looked out of sorts when Dhawan (119) and Rahul (85) were batting but after those two got out, Sri Lankan bowlers struck at regular intervals. Spinners, Pushpakumara and Sandakan in particular, bowled well in tandem and took five of the six wickets which fell on the Day 1. Vishwa Fernando removed Ashwin towards the end of the day, as India finished with 329 for six. A compelling day of Test cricket overall, I would say. We'll be back tomorrow at 10:00 am. See you then.

  • Sri Lanka bounced back after the big opening stand of 188. Rahul once again missed the hundred and was out for 85. Dhawan, on the other end, reached his sixth Test hundred -- off just 103 balls. But Pushpakumara removed both the openers before Pujara was out to Sandakan for just 8. Sandakan beat Rahane, in particular, with his wrong 'un as the latter failed to pick it. India are still in a strong position, 235 runs on the board with three down, but Kohli and Rahane both are relatively new to the crease and Sri Lanka know that if they can pick up a couple of wickets quickly after tea, they will be right in the driver's seat.

  • Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul to open for India. Vishwa Fernando with the new ball.

  • So once again, Virat Kohli gets lucky with the toss. Though the average score batting first at Pallekele is not that high, but the pitch looks good for batting as of now.

  • Dinesh Chandimal: We would have batted first as well but as I said you can't control the toss. It's always tough playing against the No. 1 team. They played some really good cricket, but as a young unit, we just want to win to win a game and looking to keep that spirit going forward. We have two injured players and we've made three changes. Rangana Herath, Nuwan Pradeep and Dhananjaya de Silva are out. Lakshan Sandakan, Lahiru Kumara and Vishwa Fernando come in.

  • Virat Kohli: It's a no brainer. We are gonna bat first. There are a few spike marks on the edges. May be around Day 2 end, it will start to turn. So, we want to take most of the advantage of the batting conditions. (On Sri Lanka's fightback in the last game): It was actually a good challenge for all of us, we have to work hard for a win and that's the attitude we carry coming into this game too. (On not having the same XI in any two consecutive Tests): Sometimes, it is about playing according to conditions, and players also understand that. Sometimes it's due to injuries or like this time, Jadeja is carrying a suspension. So Kuldeep comes in, no other changes.

  • India Won the Toss & Elected to Bat

  • Here's R Kaushik's match preview:

  • Unflinching India primed for series sweep

    Sri Lankas greenhorn attack will have its work cut out against a batting line up that has topped 600 with regularity of late

  • And congratulations to Wriddhiman Saha - this will be his 100th first-class game.

  • Meanwhile, India have a great chance to register their first whitewash in a three-Test series away from home.

  • Hello and welcome to the third Test match between Sri Lanka and India at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Kandy. Sri Lanka lost the first two Test and while, they were looking to bounce back, their problems were compounded by the injuries to their key players. Once again, one of their key players, Rangana Herath, is out due to an injury. India, on the other hand, will be without Ravindra Jadeja, the star performer of the previous game, albeit due to completely different reason.

  Full commentary

  • Thanks, ladies and gents. That's all from us for the Test series. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. We will be back for the One-Day series. Till then, good bye. See you!

  • Virat Kohli: It's a good day to win for us. Very happy with the overall game. I would say the regulars have performed like they have been doing for last three years. But Hardik is the biggest positive. Jinx and Pujji did well. KL too. Really happy with the overall performance of the team. We are a young side, we look forward to playing Test cricket, every Test match. We like to be proactive in our approach rather than being reactive. We have age on our side and the opportunity to play for five-six years together. (On Sri Lanka) They are a good side, they beat Australia 3-0 here. It's keeping the belief and keep working hard, the results will do come out.

  • Shikhar Dhawan (MoS): Before the series, I was in Hong Kong, enjoying my holidays. I got an opportunity and the things went very well for me. This is my natural game and I am enjoying my batting. I have to keep doing the hard work and keep scoring runs. (On the competition) That's very good sign for Indian cricket and keeps me on my toes.

  • Dinesh Chandimal: You cannot control the toss. Credit goes to India, they played some outstanding cricket. It's part of the team. Both batting and bowling were below par throughout the series. They scored 600 in both the Tests, so we decided to go with five bowlers. Our batting as well as bowling, you have to be more patient. If we can do that. We have very talented players, but we need to concentrate on our batting and bowling.

  • Hardik Pandya (MoM): I am glad that I got my first hundred here. I knew I can play my shots. I backed my instincts. I had some targets in my mind what as a team we can achieve. It's a pretty amazing team and everyone backs me to do well.

  • India won the series 3-0.

  • Player of the series - Shikhar Dhawan

  • Player of the match - Hardik Pandya

  • India win the match as well as the series, by 3-0. It's the first time they have whitewashed an opponent away from home in a minimum of three-Test series. This is also the second time Sri Lanka have been whitewashed at home, first being against Australia in 2004.

  • The first hour of the morning belonged to India, who struck thrice to jolt Sri Lanka's innings, with Shami putting a brilliant exhibition of seam bowling. But then, Mathews (17) and Chandimal (26) steadied the ship with an unbeaten partnership of 43 off 115 balls. India will be pleased with their effort as Sri Lanka went to lunch at 82 for 4, still 270 runs behind.
