Jadeja suspended from final Sri Lanka Test

India’s tour of Sri Lanka 2017 2nd Test Ajinkya Rahane slams his ninth Test ton second in Lanka

Harbhajan Singh is third with 25 hauls from 103 Tests, the legendary Kapil Dev is placed fourth with 23 from 131 while B.S. Chandrashekhar has 16 from 58.

"As a unit we fought back well and I am really happy how the boys played in the second innings". It's a shame he ended up on the losing side.

"We were outplayed in the first innings with the bat and the ball".

The guile and skill of India's Ravindra Jadeja helped polish off Sri Lanka comfortably in the second test.

Mendis completed his third Test century but Sri Lanka were overpowered. Credit to them. But really happy with the way the guys played in the second innings.

Both the batters scored terrific centuries and made the Indian bowlers toil hard on the SSC wicket which went on getting slower with the passage of time. In the morning session, the hosts had lost eight wickets for just 133 runs to fall 439 behind.

The Indian spinner is the second key figure to be banned for a Test match in recent weeks, after South Africa's Kagiso Rabada was ruled out for a match against England last month. Left-arm spinner Malinda Pushpakumara returned with 2/156 while Karunaratne and Dilruwan Perera bagged a wicket each. The host Sri Lanka is on 50-2 after the end of Day 2 game between India vs Sri Lanka. India now have a lead of 572 runs.

Dhawan's opening partner scored his sixth consecutive fifty on the trot before being run-out in an unfortunate mix-up. First-innings half-centurion Dickwella and Rangana Herath delayed the inevitable, to an extent that they swept and reverse-swept Jadeja out of the attack. Pulled off a stunner at gully to send Matthews packing in the first innings. With experienced campaigners Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal in the line-up, the visitors have a good chance to make India bat again, if not clinch a memorable comeback-from-behind win.

"We are playing Tests at worldwide level and we expect teams to play like (Sri Lanka did) On Sunday, even if we did not get wickets, we will enjoy the tough times". Wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha did a brilliant job as he missed no time in stumping the batsman.

This is the 26th five-wicket haul for Ashwin in Test cricket, achieving the feat in his 51st appearance in the longest format of the game. Umesh Yadav also chipped in with a wicket.

The third all-rounder in the Indian squad made the most of opportunities in his limited role. Karunaratne was more orthodox but equally effective. With exhausted bodies and more importantly exhausted minds, two of them walked back to the dressing room in the 20 overs.

Just like Yadav, Shami was not required to do a lot of bowling but he was his usual best in the limited overs he bowled.
