Ravindra Jadeja shone out with his all-round excellence, taking nine wickets in India's innings and 222-run victory over a Sri Lankan outfit that looked anything but Test calibre in a match that lasted just three days. Sri Lanka were dismissed for 178 in their second innings after being knocked out for 174 in the first. They lost 16 wickets on the day.
They were one run short of Jadeja's individual score in the first innings, and three more runs short in the second, illustrating their predicament. India leads the two-match series 1-0 and will look to win the Pink Ball Test in Bengaluru on March 12 to earn all 24 points from the rubber.
The match as a game was over on the first day, as India reached 357 and then piled on the agony of Sri Lanka's bowling attack, with Jadeja toying with a depleted bowling attack.
An Indian has scored 150 runs and taken five wickets in an innings for the first time in 60 years. Vinoo Mankad achieved this unusual accomplishment against England at Lord's in 1952, and Polly Umrigarh achieved it against the West Indies in Delhi in 1962.
As if that wasn't enough, India took 16 wickets on the third day to finish the match with a total bowling effort of 125 overs over two innings.
