India vs Sri Lanka, 2nd Test Report: Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Iyer Shine As India Complete 2-0 Series Sweep vs SL

[ad_1]

A bowling attack led by Jasprit Bumrah helped India thrash Sri Lanka by 238 runs inside three days at Bangalore’s pink ball Test to sweep the series 2-0 on Monday. Chasing 447 for victory, Sri Lanka were bowled out for 208 in the second session after skipper Dimuth Karunaratne’s valiant 107, on a pitch that turned from day one. Fast bowler Bumrah ended Karunaratne’s spell and got one more to take his match tally to eight wickets while spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took four over the day.

Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant scored 67 and 50 in India’s 303-9 declared on day two to play key roles in an emphatic victory that left the hosts unbeaten in all three of their home day-night Tests.

India also won the opening Test in three days and this win gives new all-format captain Rohit Sharma a winning start to his Test leadership.

Left-handed Karunaratne made a second wicket stand of 97 before Ashwin broke through for the stumping of the captain’s overnight partner Kusal Mendis, who recorded his 12th Test half-century.

Karunaratne though went on to wage a lone battle and raised his century — the sole hundred for a Sri Lankan batsman in this Test series — with a boundary off Bumrah.

India, who gained crucial Test championship points in the whitewash, remained dominant from day one after Iyer hit 92 and lifted the team from a precarious 86-4 to 252 all out.

Bumrah then returned figures of 5-24 for his maiden five-wicket haul at home to dismiss Sri Lanka for 109.

The series will be remembered as marking Virat Kohli’s 100th Test in the opening game in Mohali, though the star batsman scored just 45, 23 and 13 in the three Indian innings.

The former captain twice fell lbw in this Test to take his average down to below 50 for the first time since 2017, but the crowd at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium gave him a rousing reception.

Sri Lankan quick Suranga Lakmal took one wicket in his last Test and finished his career with 171 scalps in 70 five-day matches since his 2010 debut.

Lakmal scored one before being bowled by Bumrah, who joined India’s team in a rush to farewell the 35-year-old veteran.

The tourists, who lost the opening Test by an innings and 222 runs, suffered a total whitewash after they lost the preceding Twenty20 series 3-0.

Promoted

Players from India and across the world will now assemble for the Indian Premier League, which begins March 26.

India vs Sri Lanka: Ravindra Jadeja Eyes Huge Milestone During Day-Night Test In Bengaluru

[ad_1]

India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja could achieve a huge personal milestone when India face Sri Lanka in the second Test (D/N), starting at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Saturday. Jadeja, who will be playing his 59th Test for India, is just nine wickets away from completing 250 wickets in the longest format of the game. If Jadeja manages to take nine or more wickets against Sri Lanka in the day-night Test, he will become the 3rd quickest Indian to reach this landmark after Ravichandran Ashwin and Anil Kumble.

Jadeja starred with an all-round performance last week as India defeated Sri Lanka to take a 1-0 lead in the series.

After smashing an unbeaten 175 in the first innings, Jadeja returned figures’ of 5/41 and 4/46, respectively.

As a result, Jadeja occupied the top spot in the ICC Test all-rounder rankings, ahead of West Indies’ Jason Holder.

Meanwhile, Axar Patel, who replaced Kuldeep Yadav in India’s squad for the second Test, is also six wickets away from completing 100 scalps in international cricket (36 Tests, 45 ODIs and 13 T20Is).

Axar could replace Jayant Yadav in the Indian team, having impressed massively in his previous Test appearances.

The Rohit Sharma-led side will look to seal the two-match series, having won the first Test by an innings and 222 runs in Mohali last week.

Promoted

India have never lost a home Test against Sri Lanka, and will look to maintain that record and pull off a clean sweep.

The hosts also enjoy a 100 per cent record in home day-night Tests, having won both of their previous pink-ball Tests, against Bangladesh and England, respectively.
