Vidarbha Cricket Association Ground, Nagpur, India

India won by an innings and 239 runs

  Commentary

  • So that's a wrap for this game, do join us for the next Test starting Sunday. India will look to make it 2-0.

  • So, India were all over Sri Lanka right from day one even after the opposition captain won an important toss. They were knocked over the visitors for 205 in the first innings in good batting conditions. India then cashed in on the conditions. M Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara and Rohit Sharma got hundreds and Kohli got a double ton to build a massive lead. After declaring, Sri Lanka once again displayed little fight and capitulated badly.

  • Virat Kohli (Man of the Match): Well, the pitch was very good to bat on. It was on the slower side but there wasn't much happening. I just wanted to keep the scoreboard ticking, so that we can take the lead and have enough time to bowl the opposition out. I wanted to better myself at scoring big hundreds, because when you lose a wicket, you could lose a cluster of wickets. In Test cricket it's important to convert hundreds to bigger scores. Wonderfully well, Vijay takes pride in Test cricket, we believe in Rohit and have backed him. In the last five game he's done well. Rohit will be there when we pick a combination for the team. Ishant, Shami and Umesh haven't played for India so much, but they've played first-class cricket and if you have overs under your belt it does you wonders. Our spinners did a good job for us, but our fast bowlers were good. Ishant was the standout bowler. This wicket deteriorated second day onwards, but Kolkata was a nice wicket. We have to use this series to prepare for the South Africa tour. That's a big tour.

  • Player of the match - Virat Kohli

  • Dinesh Chandimal: Yeah, actually was a good toss to win. We were outplayed from the first day of the game. In India, you need to score at least 350+ or it's difficult to win or even get to the fifty day. Some of us are getting starts but we're failing, we will learn and come back stronger. He's (Angelo Mathews) the most senior guy in our line-up, as senior players you need to perform and set an example. We need to score more runs in first innings, so we can be in the game for five days. It was nice wicket to bat on, so first innings total was crucial to stay in the game. I feel our bowlers had very little to bowl to.

  • R Ashwin: Everyone bowled really well, special mention to Ishant. He came back and bowled really well. Different heights of release and the release speed is important. Me and Jaddu know the speed to bowl in these conditions. There's a lot more technology at our disposal, tools of video analysis to help us improve, so it's unfair to compare us to the legends, but I'm proud of my achievement (quickest to 300 wickets). I've not used my carrom ball in 24 months, but I worked on how to get more spin on it. It's been a longer break than I'm used to. I had a great stint at Worcestershire. I've played holding roles there. Wickets didn't come out at a quick pace so I learned new things. It's a young career, 50 Tests or something. We have bowled a lot of overs over the last 24 months, both me and Jaddu, so these are tired bodies, but I've gotten breaks so I'm feeling fresher Ishant: I didn't take many wickets when I last played Tests and it was fair that Umesh, Shami and Bhuvneshwar got picked ahead of me. It all depends on the fitness, Virat makes a good example. I think it's a good competition, healthy competition with the fast bowlers, you have to come in and take wickets.

  • That's a wrap. That's India's joint biggest victory and Sri Lanka's biggest defeat. The visitors got into the day with nine wickets in hand. All thought they would battle on into the third session at least, but they were on the verge of capitulating inside the morning session. But they just managed to evade that.

    R Ashwin to L Gamage, OUT, this is the carrom ball, classic one, beats the outside edge on the defence, and just clips the off-stump. Ashwin gets four for the second time in the match. More importantly, it's 300 wickets for him and he's the quickest to get there, in 54 Tests, surpassing Dennis Lillee who took 56 games to reach the mark. L Gamage b R Ashwin 0(9) [4s-0] [6s-0]

End of the Innings

India won by an innings and 239 runs

  Full commentary

  • After the pacers had wreaked havoc in Kolkata it was back to good ole' spin in Nagpur as Ashwin and Jadeja combined to take seven wickets to bowl Sri Lanka out for 205 in 79.1 overs. Ishant Sharma did his part too picking up 3 wickets. For Sri Lanka, Dinesh Chandimal and Dimuth Karunaratne hit half-centuries but there was little contribution from elsewhere.

  • A fascinating display of test match cricket, and India will be the happier of the two sides at lunch. They allowed Sri Lanka to score only 47 runs in the 27 overs bowled and picked up the crucial wickets of Sadeera Samarawickrama and Lahiru Thirimanne and should have had another one before lunch only if Jadeja had not overstepped. Sri Lanka were good in patches, but will look to maybe up the scoring after the break.

  • Virat Kohli: There will be some offer for the fast bowlers initially. There is an area which is gree, won't say the whole track is green, there is an area and the ball would do something. We would have batted first as well. We are looking to put ourseles in tough conditions. The first few hours the wicket should be good. It looks like a pretty well-balanced Test wicket as Dinesh said. Three changes for us, Shami has a niggle, so Ishant comes in his place, Rohit comes in for Bhuvneshwar, Vijay for Dhawan.

  • Dinesh Chandimal: We will have a bat first. Looks like a good pitch. There is a slight green cover. We have played some really good cricket in the first Test apart from the last session. We will look to do the same way and look to bat better in the second innings.

  • Sri Lanka Won the Toss & Elected to Bat

  • Toss in 10 minutes.

  • I genuinely feel in the last few months, the Sri Lankan and Indian players might have seen more of each other even more than their own family members. That's how much they have played against each other. Virat Kohli had made it clear in the pre-match press conference that India were clearly looking forward to the South Africa tour an had instructed the groundsman to get the pitches made accordingly. Sri Lanka, on the other hand had put in a spirited performance in the first innings if the first Test and would be looking to do the same here as well. India would be without Bhuvneshwar Kumar (who got married on December 23) and Shikhar Dhawan while there are still concerns about Suranga Lakmal's injury for Sri Lanka.

  • Hello and Welcome to the second Test between Sri Lanka and India and we are live from the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, in Nagpur.

    Cramped schedules are unavoidable for the Indian team but their decision to step out of comfort zone is laudable

  • Meanwhile, a disappointed Thilan Samaraweera, the batting coach, couldn’t sugar-coat their plight.

  • Struggle against spin a worry says Samaraweera

    Sri Lankas new batting coach hopes to start addressing the teams batting concerns after four five months

  • It’s been a game of musical chairs for the opener’s slots in the Indian team, but M Vijay took it in his stride and said it was something he had come to terms with. Till the home series against Australia in March earlier this year, Vijay was India’s first-choice opener. Then, a long-term wrist injury resurfaced and he was subsequently ruled out of the Sri Lanka tour, losing his place to Shikhar Dhawan. “I really don’t have to deal [with it] as long as I am happy and comfortable in my space. If I am able to achieve that on a consistent basis, I think I am doing a good job. I feel as a professional you should always be ready whether you get a chance or not," said Vijay.

  • You should always be ready Vijay not distracted by competition for opening spot

    Playing for India is difficult and whoever gets a chance I wish them luck says opener after century in Nagpur Test

  • In case you missed out on any action from day two, here's Roshan Thyagarajan's report that will give you an idea how dominating the Indian batsmen were on the second day.

  • Vijay Pujara grind Sri Lanka down

    Centuries from both batsmen carry India to an imposing 3122 and a lead of 107 runs on Day 2 of the second Test

  • On the other hand, Sri Lanka will have to find some options to keep the lead down to as little as possible or else it won't take much time for the solid Indian batsmen to take the game away from the visitors. With pitch starting to open up, the onus will be on the spin duo of Rangana Herath and Dilruwan Perera to make early inroads and stop India from taking a massive lead.

  • India were ruthless on the second day in Nagpur. After M Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara formed a brilliant 209-run stand for the second wicket, Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, came in and took the attack to the Sri Lankan bowlers. While Vijay perished on an effortless 221-ball 128, Pujara and Kohli remained unconquered on 121 and 54 respectively. The home side have already gained an advantage of 107 runs and will now look to build on it and get it close to 300-350.

  • Good morning and welcome to our live coverage of the third day of the second Test between India and Sri Lanka.

  • What a day for the Indians! After an exceptional performance with the ball yesterday, the hosts showed the Sri Lankans the value of staying at the crease with M Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara grinding the visitors. Vijay returned to his wristy best as the opener stroked his way to an eye-catching century, while Pujara reiterated his desire to smother the opposition en route another Test ton as India reached 312 for 2 at the end of the day's play with an overall lead of 107. They forged a 209-run stand for the second wicket before Vijay fell to a low full toss from Rangana Hearth. Just when Sri Lanka would have thought they could sneak in with a couple of quick scalps entered Virat Kohli scoring runs at a brisk rate, eventually ending unconquered on 54 from 70 balls at the close of play. For the Sri Lankans, there wasn't much to celebrate today, but they will have to pull themselves up quickly tomorrow and hope to keep the lead down to as little as possible. While, for the Indians, they will want to bat long, and bat once.

  • Another wicketless session and India have taken full control of this Test now.

Sri Lanka have all but looked deflated and will look for some inspiration in the final session.

  Full commentary

  • So that's a wrap for this game, do join us for the next Test starting Sunday. India will look to make it 2-0.

  • So, India were all over Sri Lanka right from day one even after the opposition captain won an important toss. They were knocked over the visitors for 205 in the first innings in good batting conditions. India then cashed in on the conditions. M Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara and Rohit Sharma got hundreds and Kohli got a double ton to build a massive lead. After declaring, Sri Lanka once again displayed little fight and capitulated badly.

  • Virat Kohli (Man of the Match): Well, the pitch was very good to bat on. It was on the slower side but there wasn't much happening. I just wanted to keep the scoreboard ticking, so that we can take the lead and have enough time to bowl the opposition out. I wanted to better myself at scoring big hundreds, because when you lose a wicket, you could lose a cluster of wickets. In Test cricket it's important to convert hundreds to bigger scores. Wonderfully well, Vijay takes pride in Test cricket, we believe in Rohit and have backed him. In the last five game he's done well. Rohit will be there when we pick a combination for the team. Ishant, Shami and Umesh haven't played for India so much, but they've played first-class cricket and if you have overs under your belt it does you wonders. Our spinners did a good job for us, but our fast bowlers were good. Ishant was the standout bowler. This wicket deteriorated second day onwards, but Kolkata was a nice wicket. We have to use this series to prepare for the South Africa tour. That's a big tour.

  • Player of the match - Virat Kohli

  • Dinesh Chandimal: Yeah, actually was a good toss to win. We were outplayed from the first day of the game. In India, you need to score at least 350+ or it's difficult to win or even get to the fifty day. Some of us are getting starts but we're failing, we will learn and come back stronger. He's (Angelo Mathews) the most senior guy in our line-up, as senior players you need to perform and set an example. We need to score more runs in first innings, so we can be in the game for five days. It was nice wicket to bat on, so first innings total was crucial to stay in the game. I feel our bowlers had very little to bowl to.

  • R Ashwin: Everyone bowled really well, special mention to Ishant. He came back and bowled really well. Different heights of release and the release speed is important. Me and Jaddu know the speed to bowl in these conditions. There's a lot more technology at our disposal, tools of video analysis to help us improve, so it's unfair to compare us to the legends, but I'm proud of my achievement (quickest to 300 wickets). I've not used my carrom ball in 24 months, but I worked on how to get more spin on it. It's been a longer break than I'm used to. I had a great stint at Worcestershire. I've played holding roles there. Wickets didn't come out at a quick pace so I learned new things. It's a young career, 50 Tests or something. We have bowled a lot of overs over the last 24 months, both me and Jaddu, so these are tired bodies, but I've gotten breaks so I'm feeling fresher Ishant: I didn't take many wickets when I last played Tests and it was fair that Umesh, Shami and Bhuvneshwar got picked ahead of me. It all depends on the fitness, Virat makes a good example. I think it's a good competition, healthy competition with the fast bowlers, you have to come in and take wickets.

  • That's a wrap. That's India's joint biggest victory and Sri Lanka's biggest defeat. The visitors got into the day with nine wickets in hand. All thought they would battle on into the third session at least, but they were on the verge of capitulating inside the morning session. But they just managed to evade that.

    R Ashwin to L Gamage, OUT, this is the carrom ball, classic one, beats the outside edge on the defence, and just clips the off-stump. Ashwin gets four for the second time in the match.

  • India played well, little doubt about that, but Sri Lanka were just as terrible leading to a disastrous first session for them. It looked like this would be the only session for them on the day, but they just managed to get past the 15 minute extension after being eight-down. Only the overnight batsmen looked to try and dig in, but after Karunaratne played a slog sweep, only to inside edge it to square leg, the visitors looked like they were going through the motions. They played rash shots galore to lose seven wickets in the morning session. It must be added that the pitch wasn't poor either. Ashwin picked three wickets, Jadeja two, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma one each. Sri Lanka are only two wickets away from almost certain defeat, and a big one at that. They are trailing by 260 runs on India's first innings.

    R Ashwin to L Thirimanne, no run, Gentle line outside off, not much turn, blocked.

  • The Indians are making their way out to the middle. First aim will be to dislodge one of Lahiru Thirimanne and Dimuth Karunaratne, the two overnight batsmen. R Ashwin has the ball. He's in hunt for four wickets to get to the 300-mark.

  • Of India's bowlers, R Ashwin will be particularly keen to try and spoil Sri Lanka's designs of trying to salvage the game. In just his 54th Test, Ashwin is a mere four wickets away from 300 Test victims. If he gets to the mark in this innings, he'll be the fastest to the mark, surpassing Dennis Lillee, the Australian quick, who did it in 56 Tests.

  • 9:17 am: The surface hasn't really acted up and had they applied themselves in the first innings, Sri Lanka would have been in a far better standing. Some cracks are likely to open up, but it should still stay true for the batsmen. It'll be about dour application for the visitors as they look to survive another day.

  • It was another glorious day for India, however. Cheteshwar Pujara hailed Virat Kohli, and backed misfiring Ajinkya Rahane to come good sooner rather than later.

  • Its his confidence Pujara explains Kohli

  • Here's the Day 3 Report by Karthik Lakshmanan to help us brush up with the proceedings as we await start of play on what could well be the final day of this Test.

  • Kohli Rohit lead Indian run fest

    Skippers fifth double ton sets up 405 run advantage Sri Lanka lose Samarawickrama face tall order

  • 8:36 am: Only one team is on top, and it's barely surprising given the recent form of both teams. Sri Lanka are already one down as the strive to stave off the humiliation of an innings defeat. They're still 384 runs behind and Ishant Sharma's already sent one batsman back to the hut. Sadeera Samarawickrama was dismissed for a duck by the Delhi bowler as Sri Lanka went to stumps at 21/1 in nine overs. Will be interesting to see if the visitors can throw up a fight. Saving the game seems like a far cry at this moment, however. It will be a small victory if they can see off the whole of the fourth day. But India's bowlers will be particularly keen to wrap this up.

  • That's it from us for now but do join us tomorrow at the same time. Until then, it's goodbye.

  • After Virat Kohli (213) and Rohit Sharma (102*) helped India pile up a massive 610 for 6 on the board, Ishant Sharma knocked over Sadeera Samarawickrama to make early inroads and reduced Sri Lanka to 21 for 1. With a 384-run mountain to climb, Sri Lanka will have to play extremely well to avoid a defeat. Meanwhile, India will hope to pick the remaining nine wickets before the end of day four and gain a 1-0 lead in the three match-series.
