Right then! That's all we have for you from this game. After a thrilling day 5 finish in Kolkata, this game turned out to be an anti-climax. Let's hope we don't get to witness another lopsided affair when these two meet next for the third and final Test in Delhi. Will Sri Lanka pull a rabbit out of the hat or will the plot remain the same? Join us on 2nd December, 2017 at 0930 LOCAL (0400 GMT) to catch all the action. Till then, goodbye and take care. Cheers!
Indian skipper, VIRAT KOHLI, who is also the MAN OF THE MATCH, is delighted with the win. Starts by crediting the pitch which was a good one to bat on. Now credits the bowlers for doing the job when there wasn't much purchase on day 1. On previously failing to get daddy tons, he says he strives to get better and is happy to do so now. Gives a special mention to his fitness which plays an important role. On Pujara and Vijay, he states that the former is very consistent while the latter is a technically sound player who takes a lot of pride in playing Test cricket. Praises Rohit, too, for grabbing the opportunity and justifying his selection. Backs him up by saying he will certainly be in the fray in future. On his bowlers, he says first-class cricket has helped Ishant Sharma and adds Yadav and Shami haven't played as much as Bhuvneshwar Kumar has in recent times. States that all his bowlers are in good rhythm. Reckons they had asked for a pitch which has more life in it as they wanted to get some practice before flying to South Africa. Informs the track deteriorated on day 2 itself but loved the one that they got in Kolkata. Is really looking forward for the South African tour.
Sri Lankan captain, DINESH CHANDIMAL says it was a good toss to win but admits they were outplayed completely by the Indians. Reckons India is a tough team to beat and that they were really poor with their shot selections. Adds they had certain plans in mind but rues that every batter just threw it away after getting a start. Informs that Angelo Mathews is the senior player in the side and when he falls early, the rest fail to carry on. Hopes that Mathews will come back into the groove sooner for them as his side needs him. Asserts that they need to address the loss quickly. Lauds the way his bowlers bowled and expects a better batting show in the next game.
It's time for the presentation. Let's hear what the skippers have got to say.
Next up is Ishant Sharma. He reckons that since he wasn't among the wickets and the way Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were bowling, they deserved to play ahead of him. On such tracks it is about varying the lengths, he opines. He feels good to be among the wickets now. Thanks Basu Shanker, the trainer, for pushing everybody harder in terms of fitness levels and also mentions that the skipper leads from the front in this aspect. With healthy competition in the side for the seamers, it is all about grabbing your opportunities and performing, he states.
Here's what Ashwin has to say. After the applause dies down, he says that it was a tad funny at the start of the day as some deliveries spun while the others didn't. Credits Ravindra Jadeja and Ishant Sharma for bowling well and giving the early breakthroughs. He opines that angles and heights of release of the ball matter on such tracks and that both the spinners bowled at ideal speeds. On being the quickest to get to 300 Test wickets, he says that the present players are blessed more than the others due to the technology on offer and hence it is unfair to compare players from different generations. States that he didn't bowl many carrom balls and has worked on different loading positions and release points for that. Regarding the longish lay off that he had, he reckons that the break was longer than what he had ever got, during which he played County cricket and worked on the holding role. His is still a young career and he aims to add many more and almost double the 300 wickets that he currently has. Ends saying that he is tired as spin bowling isn't just about ambling in and rolling the arm over.
Once again it was Ishant Sharma who set the tone up in the second innings while Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin spun the web viciously to leave the batsmen puzzled. Umesh Yadav, too, made his presence felt on his home ground with a couple of wickets to his name. A complete team effort from India saw them EQUAL THEIR BIGGEST TEST VICTORY. Sanjay Manjrekar catches up with Ravichandran Ashwin and Ishant Sharma on the sidelines...
Two full days of play were remaining and the result was more or less certain. Sri Lanka had a monumental task ahead of them and it was disheartening to see them going down without putting up a fight. None of the batsmen apart from their skipper Chandimal (who tried his best in the first innings too) showed any resistance. Most of them were guilty of not applying themselves which didn't help their cause. Suranga Lakmal threw his bat around and strung a breezy 58-run stand with his skipper but to be honest, it was just about delaying the inevitable.
Sri Lanka lost half of the game then and there. The Indian batsmen decided to bat once but bat big. Apart from Rahul and Rahane, the rest made the most of a good batting surface. It all started with Murali Vijay (128), then Cheteshwar Pujara (143), went on to Virat Kohli (213) and ended when Rohit Sharma helped himself to an unbeaten ton (102). All of them batted with sheer authority and dictated terms to the Lankan bowlers. Finally the declaration came when Kohli felt a lead of 405 was enough.
India have dominated Sri Lanka completely to take a 1-0 lead in the series. They were put under the pump in Kolkata but it was completely a different scenario that we got to witness in Nagpur. Kohli lost an important toss but his side did everything right from thereon. You don't expect a team to be bundled out for a paltry 205 on day 1 of a Test match on a good track, do you? The Indian bowlers did that without their two strike bowlers (Shami and Kumar). Ishant Sharma on his comeback, took three while the remaining 7 wickets were taken care of by the spin twins.

Ravichandran Ashwin To Lahiru Gamage OUT!
OUT! Gamage is bowled! Another feather in Ashwin's cap - 300th Test wicket for him and he becomes the quickest to do so. He bowls a carrom ball, lands it around off. Gamage comes forward to defend but the ball grips and turns away and the bails are seen coming off. The umpire, Richard Kettleborough isn't sure what has happened there and hence takes it upstairs. The Indians are seen shaking hands, meanwhile. Replays show, the ball disturbs the off stick and then settles into the keeper's mitts. That's it then. INDIA WIN BY AN INNINGS AND 239 RUNS!
Oh wait! What just happened? Ashwin beats Gamage's defense, the bails have come off. The umpire isn't sure and hence it has been referred upstairs...

Umesh Yadav To Dinesh Chandimal OUT!
OUT! In the air... gone! It's wicket no. 99 in Tests for the local lad. Chandimal walks back in dismay. Yadav drops it on a length but the line is on the leg stump. The Lankan skipper flicks it aerially but finds Ashwin stationed at fine leg who accepts a simple catch. End of the Sri Lankan skipper's resistance. Yet another valiant knock from him but in vain. India just a wicket away from a win here.
