Key Events
SL 208 ALL OUT—In the air…and taken by Mohammed Shami. That means India win the second Test by 238 runs and also take the two match series 2-0. That’s a clean sweep. Earlier also, they clean swept the Sri Lankans in T20I series; the scoreline was 3-0.
SL 208/9—What a yorker…. and Suranga Lakmal fails to keep it out. Meanwhile Bumrah kept running to congratulate the batter on a wonderful career. This was his final Test for Sri Lanka. So many Indian players rushing in to congratulate him.
SL 208/8—WICKET! Another one bites the dust. Great bowling from Ashwin. Close LBW call but Embuldeniya was ruled not out. After which Rohit went upstairs and the decision was overruled.
SL 204/7—-WICKET! Jasprit Bumrah gets the big fish. Yes skipper departs as he sees his stumps flying. What a ball from Bumrah. That may be the match as India need three more wickets with the tail getting exposed.
SL 204/6—What an over from Ravi Ashwin. The ball was turning viciously and almost kissed the edge not once, but twice. Top stuff. Meanwhile Karunaratne is batting at 107.
SL 200/6—The skipper pulls Bumrah and gets a single…that would be century number 14 for Dimuth Karunaratne. What a knock, even Kohli is clapping! The pitch is turning square, but he just stood on to reach a well deserving century.
SL 190/6—Sri Lanka have already lost this one. It is just a matter of time. Meanwhile, Karunaratne is on 96. He wants to get there ASAP.
SL 183/6—A couple of close calls in this over from Jadeja. First, Dimuth Karunaratne survived and then Embuldeniya survives a close LBW call as DRS rules him not out.
SL 180/6—WICKET! Charith Asalanka departs as Axar Patel strikes again. So far, he has accounted for the two wickets that fell after Tea session. Game changing overs as skipper Karunaratne grimaces at the non strikers’ end.
SL 179/5—Great over from Ravindra Jadeja as he replaces Ashwin. Interesting session of play as India continue to operate with spinners from both sides.
SL 176/5—Meanwhile Dimuth Karunaratne is playing at 85. India are desperate to get him out as he is the last man standing. Although, Asalanka can be a very good limited overs batter, his Test match effectiveness is very much in question.
SL 175/5—A couple of bad balls taking the sheen off this over from Ravi Ashwin. Quite a few short balls from the bowler and this time Asalanka read that right and cut that away for a boundary.
SL 168/5—Charith Asalanka is the new man in and he is yet to get off the mark! It’s been ten balls as Ashwin gets away with a maiden over. Sri Lanka were looking really good, but now with five wickets left, India are clear favourites.
SL 164/5 —Another mediocre over from Ravi Ashwin. It’s interesting that he has the worst economy among all the bowlers. At this stage, Axar is clearly outbowling his senior counterparts—Jaddu and Ash.
SL 160/5—WICKET! What an over from Axar. Great first four balls which were dots. Then on the next ball, batter takes a single which brings Dickwella on strike. And he steps down only to miss the ball…STUMPED.
SL 159/4—India operating through two spinners in Ashwin and Axar. Nonetheless, Sri Lanka skipper looking cool and calm. Taking his own time. He has dug in his heels. Can frustrate Indian bowlers in the long run.
Hello and welcome back to our live coverage of the second Test match on day 3 at Chinnaswamy Stadium. Sri Lanka have put the anchor down, it seems. They will not go down without a fight. Earlier it seemed that they will fold up quite easily. No they won’t. Good for Test match cricket!
Time for tea break. Sri Lanka 151/4, Karunaratne not out on 67, Dickwella unbeaten for 10, need 296 runs to win.
India need 6 wickets to win.
Through the gap between keeper and first slip. Runs flowing in for Sri Lanka… Four for Karunaratne.
Fuller from Shami, into the pads and Karunaratne flicks it elegantly, piercing through mid-wicket. Superb Shot this.
Earlier Bumrah claimed his maiden fifer in the first innings as India bundled out Sri Lanka for just 109 and all the eyes will be once again on the 28-year-old to dismantle visitors’ batting line-up.

Half-centuries from Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant combined with inspired bowling on Sunday’s day two helped India eye a big win in the pink ball Test against Sri Lanka.
The tourists were 28 for one at stumps while chasing a daunting 447 for victory in Bangalore. Kusal Mendis on 16 and skipper Dimuth Karunaratne on 10 were batting at close of play.
Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah trapped Lahiru Thirimanne lbw for nought to take his wickets tally to six in the match before three fans ran on the pitch to get a selfie with Virat Kohli.
India declared their second innings on 303-9 in the final session after Iyer made 67 and Pant smashed a 28-ball 50 — a Test record for an Indian batsman.
Bumrah backed the gameplan of the left-handed Pant who is often criticised for throwing away his wicket after a start.
“Every individual has a different gameplan, so he has backed his strengths,” Bumrah, the team’s vice-captain, said of the swashbuckling batsman.
“Not every player in the team will play with the same tempo, we understand that. He is still getting more and more experience and learning about this game.”
Iyer, who hit 92 in India’s first innings total of 252, raised his third Test fifty in his fourth match with a cracking boundary.
He put on key partnerships including a 45-run stand with Pant and 63 with Ravindra Jadeja, who made 22, before falling lbw to Lasith Embuldeniya.
Mohammed Shami hit an unbeaten 16 before skipper Rohit Sharma called him back to the pavilion after the fall of Axar Patel.
