India beat Sri Lanka by 238 runs
Right then! Rohit Sharma collects the trophy and as usual, hands it over to the youngsters in the team. He moves aside and the celebrations begin. That is all we have from this Test match as well as the series. We hope that you enjoyed the coverage. There is a lot of cricketing action happening around the globe for you to cheer. But from here, it is goodbye!
Rohit Sharma, the victorious skipper of India, says it's been a good run so far. Adds that Ravindra Jadeja is getting better and better every day and is a gun on the field as well, he is happy to have him. On Shreyas Iyer, he says that he is grabbing his opportunity and is carrying his form in each format. Tells, he was filling the big shoes of Pujara and Rahane and he has done brilliantly so far. On Rishabh Pant, Rohit says that he is getting better every day as well. During the England series as well, it was his approach and confidence that helps him to get better. On Ravichandran Ashwin, he feels he is one of the greats of the game and laughs by saying he has many years left in him. Mentions, it was the third pink-ball match in India and they are still learning to play that. Appreciates the crowd in the end.
Rishabh Pant is the PLAYER OF THE SERIES. He says, he enjoys both batting and keeping and needs to evolve and improve in each game. Adds that the wicket was difficult to bat on, so he thought of scoring quick runs. Tells that he is happy to bat wherever the management wants. Mentions that he is more confident about his keeping now.
Shreyas Iyer is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH. He says that when he saw the batters struggling, he made sure that he will take on the bowlers and play with their minds. Adds that he is really happy with the score that he got and is happy that it came in a winning cause. Tells that he has no regrets and is enjoying his batting. Says that he always wanted to play Test cricket for India and feels lucky to be playing alongside the greats of the game.
Dimuth Karunaratne, the skipper of Sri Lanka, says he would have been happier if they won the match. Adds that he was confident to make a big score here. Tells that they batted well in patches and in bowling as well, they gave away many loose balls. When asked about Suranga Lakmal, he says that he was one of the best bowlers he has seen and wishes good luck to him in the county.
... THE PRESENTATION ...
Axar Patel is up for a chat as well. He laughs and says he does not think too much as he knows that Jadeja and Ashwin will do most of the work. Adds that he asks other bowlers regarding what kind of pace is suitable on each wicket. He wishes the best to Ashwin who will play for another team in the upcoming Indian T20 League.
Ravichandran Ashwin is up for a quick chat. He says, he does not think much about his accomplishments. Adds, it was a challenge as they were playing a pink-ball Test after a long time. He was enjoying his bowling and was taking time to settle in. Tells that he works hard before delivering the ball. Mentions that Ahmedabad's pitch had more bounce, while here there was more spin. He also appreciates Dimuth Karunaratne's batting. On the wicket of Kusal Mendis, he says they had runs on the board and he was trying different things to take his wicket and it was one of those days where it worked for him.
It was a Test that was dominated by the bowlers, in spite of those knocks from Shreyas Iyer and Dimuth Karunaratne. India opted to bat first on a slow track and it was Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant who made sure that they post a competitive total on the board. Then, it was the Indian bowlers who bundled out Sri Lanka for their second-lowest score against the hosts in Test cricket. They conceded a lead of 143 runs in the first innings and India took full advantage of that in their second innings. The Indian batters contributed well in the second innings as they set a huge target of 447 runs in front of Sri Lanka. Well, chasing those many runs on such a tricky surface was always going to be a challenge. Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis came out with intent but they didn't get much help from their teammates. As a result, Sri Lanka fell way short of the target but Dimuth Karunaratne's hundred will surely go down as one of the finest knocks played on Indian soil.
India had to pick 6 wickets in the second session to win the match and their bowling attack has been sensational to wrap things up rather quickly. Although, it was Dimuth Karunaratne who stood strong in between India's victory and it was one of the best knocks played on a tricky wicket. It was Ravichandran Ashwin who picked up four wickets while Jasprit Bumrah finished with three wickets to his name. Karunaratne was delaying team India's win but then came Bumrah who knocked his middle stump over andthen, it was only a matter of time before they were bowled out. The only positive for Sri Lanka apart from Dimuth Karunaratne's hundred was that they went past the 200-run mark for the first time in the series.
Another thumping win for India as they defeat Sri Lanka by a whopping 238 runs and seal the Test series 2-0. They have outplayed the Lankans in this Test as well as the series and apart from Dimuth Karunaratne's scintillating hundred, nothing has gone the tourists' way in this Test. India have been just too good for their opposition and they also grab 12 crucial points in the World Test Championship cycle.

Drinks! Dimuth Karunaratne is standing between India and victory. He is standing tall and not just hanging in there but scoring runs and at a good rate as well. Still no alarms from India's point of view but it will not take time if Karunaratne continues to play like this.

We are back for the second session! The players have made their way out to the middle. Dimuth Karunaratne and Niroshan Dickwella to resume their innings. Axar Patel will start with the ball.
... Day 3, Session 2 ...
Right then! Sri Lanka has shown some resistance but on this kind of a track, one wicket brings two and India would be keen to make early inroads post-Tea break. Will Sri Lanka go past the 200-run mark for the first time in this Test series? Do join us for the second session which could also turn out to be the last of this series and it begins at 4.20 pm IST (10.50 am GMT).
Kusal Mendis and Dimuth Karunaratne continued from where they left off on Day 2 and the Lankans got off to a brisk start. Both Karunaratne and Mendis were playing their shots and looked at ease for a while. Although, Mendis perished on 54 and then the tourists lost wickets in quick succession. Karunaratne is leading from the front and he has shown some resistance against the Indian bowlers. For India, it was the spin-duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja who got into the wickets column but Sri Lanka would be reasonably happy with the kind of fight they are showing on such a tricky pitch.
Sri Lanka have finally shown some intent with the bat in this series. The overnight batters, Kusal Mendis and skipper, Dimuth Karunaratne came out with good, positive intent of scoring runs and the tourists have managed to score 123 runs in the first session of Day 3, although, at the cost of three wickets.

OUT! STUMPING! Pant is fast with his keeping but still the umpire wants to take it upstairs.UltraEdge shows no bat and the side angle replay shows Mendis was way, way out of his crease. Mendis has to continue his walk. Superb delivery from Ashwin. He gives flight to this one, on a length and just outside off, might be the carrom ball as well. Mendis comes way down his track to defend but gets beaten on the outside edge and Pant has enough time to remove the bails off. India finally break the partnership. There was a slight bit of hesitation in the Indian dressing room, very little though.

Ravindra Jadeja To Dimuth Karunaratne
FOUR! What a way to start the day! This is tossed up, outside off. Dimuth Karunaratne comes down the track and whips it past the mid on fielder for a boundary.
All in readiness. The Indian players are in the middle. Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis will continue their batting. As expected, it will be a spinner starting the proceedings. Ravindra Jadeja is here...
PITCH REPORT - Deep Dasgupta and Murali Karthik are near the pitch. They say that there will be more turn for the spinners on Day 3 and the batters will need to apply themselves if they are to score some runs on this track. The sun is beating down and the pitch will get drier as the game progresses.
From what was seen in the first two days of this Test match, the first two sessions are dominated by spinners and looking at that, Ashwin, Jadeja and Patel will be expected to enjoy the session. Although, the pitch has a little demon present now. Still, you expect the hosts to have an upper hand. The first session will give us a fair idea about how things will unfold. Stay tuned for further updates.
Hello and a warm welcome to the action of Day 3 between India and Sri Lanka. What is called a moving day can prove to be the final day of the match. The equation is very simple, India need 9 wickets to win while Sri Lanka need 419 runs with an ample amount of time. Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis played the tricky small period on Day 2 very nicely and did well to close the day without any more damage. They will look to have a positive opening hour while India will come out with full force and look to bundle the visitors out.
... Day 3, Session 1...
Right then! Here is the equation going into Day 3 of this Test - Sri Lanka need 419 runs to win while India require 9 wickets to win this Test as well as the series. Sri Lanka will need to bat out of their skins going ahead in this Test and India will look to make early inroads in the first session on Day 3 and keep the visitors at bay. Will India pick 9 wickets on Day 3 itself and seal the series? We shall find that soon. The action on Day 3 begins at 2 pm IST (8.30 am GMT). But as usual, our buildup will begin much earlier. Do join us for the same. Till then, Adios!
Hanuma Vihari is up for a chat. He says the pitch was quite challenging but he thinks they batted well. Adds that their bowling was good as well and feels it will be hard for Sri Lanka and is confident that they will take the remaining wickets quickly. Tells that he should have batted with more patience and speaking about the pitch, he thinks in both the innings it was challenging. Mentions that he waited for a particular delivery to score on. Says that they had no plans of bowling in the final session but because they lost wickets, they had a go in the last 35-40 minutes.
Earlier in the day, it was Jasprit Bumrah and Ravichandran Ashwin who wrapped things up quickly for India, and Sri Lanka were bowled out for their second-lowest total against India in Test cricket. They conceded a first innings lead of 143 runs and then it was onto their bowlers to make sure that they do not let the hosts run away with the game. Although, they weren't upto the mark as their bowlers were inconsistent and managed to keep things tight only for a while. Coming to India's batting - There were some good contributions from Rohit Sharma and Hanuma Vihari but India's youngsters, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer stole the show yet again. Both of them scored fifties and almost batted Sri Lanka out of this Test. Sri Lanka were set a target of 447 runs and they didn't get off to a great start as they lost their opener Lahiru Thirimanne for a duck. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami made the new ball talk yet again but Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis ensured that Sri Lanka do not lose any more wickets heading into Day 3.
Another enthralling day of this pink-ball Test comes to an end. Just like Day 1, Day 2 has also been all about India as Sri Lanka have been outplayed by a strong Indian side. The Lankans have a mountain to climb now and their batters have their task cut out going into Day 3. India will be happy to get a wicket before Stumps but they would have certainly liked a couple more.
