2nd Test Match in Colombo – Sri Lanka v India


India put 600 on the board for the second game in a row as they continued their domination in Sri Lanka. Cheteshwar Pujara (133) and Ajinkya Rahane (132) both got centuries and four other got 50+ including Ravinda Jadeja who was unbeaten on 70 not out as India declared having put a mammoth total of 622 for Sri Lanka to chase.

The first innings reply was a total collapse by Sri Lanka who were bowled all out for just 183 with Ravichandran Ashwin taking 5 wickets. Sri Lanka put more of a fight up in the second inning after India enforced the follow on. Dimuth Karanaratne hit an impressive 141 and Kusal Mendis also hit a century with 110. The size of the total was too much though with the hosts finally dismissed for 386 with 5 wickets for the excellent Jadeja for a big innings and 53 run victory.

India now only have to avoid defeat in one of the next two games to take their eight test series win in a row.
