IND beat SL Highlights: Ravindra Jadeja’s ‘SUPERSHOW’ mauls Sri Lanka, India beat ‘CLUELESS’ visitors by an innings and 222 RUNS to win MOHALI test
India Mauls CLUELESS SriLanka: Hosts beat visitors by an innings and 222 runs as Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin bagged four wickets in 2nd innings here at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali on Sunday to take an unassailable 1-0 lead in the two-match Test series.
Resuming post Tea session at 120/4 the Indian spinners continued their wicket-taking spree.
Ashwin becomes India’s 2nd Highest Wicket Taker: Ravichandran Ashwin dismissed Charith Asalanka in the third ball post-tea caught by Virat Kohli making him his 435th Test victim and going past Kapil Dev to become India’s second most successful Test bowler behind Anil Kumble who has 619 Test scalps to his name.
Ashwin is now ninth in the list of all-time highest wicket-taker in Tests.
Five balls later Sri Lanka lost Angelo Mathews for 28 to Ravindra Jadeja’s leg before wicket and then two balls later Suranga Lakmal hold out by Jayant Yadav in mid-on without troubling the scorers.
Ravindra Jadeja’s SUPERSHOW Derails Sri Lanka: The match as a contest was over on the first day when India scored 357 and then piled on Sri Lanka’s misery with Jadeja toying with a depleted bowling attack.
It is after 60 years that an Indian has scored 150 runs and taken five wickets in an innings. Vinoo Mankad, in 1952 against England at Lord’s, and Polly Umrigarh in 1962 versus West Indies at Delhi, are the other owners of this rare feat.
If that wasn’t enough, India got as many as 16 wickets on the third day to wrap up the match with a cumulative bowling effort of 125 overs across two innings.

IND vs SL LIVE Score: Day 3: Ravindra Jadeja puts India on course for HUGE victory – Follow Day 3 LIVE Updates
- Another excellent spell from Bumrah. He has troubled both Asalanka and Nissanka with his variations but no wicket so far.
- Jasprit Bumrah comes in. He needs to get a wicket here.
- Two boundaries off Ashwin’s over. Nissanka and Asalanka have done well to survive early attack.
- Another exceptional over from Ashwin. He kept both Nissanka and Asalanka guessing and created a couple of half-chances.
- APPEAL! Big shout from Shami but the umpire is not interested. The ball was pitching outside leg-stump and was missing the stumps big time.
- DROPPED! Nissanka tried to go against Ashwin and gave away a chance to Shreyas Iyer. But he failed to grab it. A big chance goes begging.
- FOUR! First boundary of the morning. Asalanka read Shami’s bouncer well and pulled it for a 4.
- No Bumrah, Ashwin comes in for the second over.
- Mohammed Shami begins India’s attack but with a no-ball.
@9:15 AM: Pathum Nissanka and Charith Asalanka will resume Day 3 proceedings for Sri Lanka.
