TOTAL59.1 Ov (RR: 4.25)252
Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Mayank Agarwal, 1.3 ov), 2-29 (Rohit Sharma, 9.3 ov), 3-76 (Hanuma Vihari, 26.2 ov), 4-86 (Virat Kohli, 27.3 ov), 5-126 (Rishabh Pant, 32.4 ov), 6-148 (Ravindra Jadeja, 36.4 ov), 7-183 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 47.1 ov), 8-215 (Axar Patel, 49.6 ov), 9-229 (Mohammed Shami, 53.5 ov), 10-252 (Shreyas Iyer, 59.1 ov)
49.6 to AR Patel, finally a break for Sri Lanka. Axar is gone on the cut. This is just short of a length, and skids on, taking the bottom edge and crashing into the wicket. 215/8
9.3 to RG Sharma, gone! Tossed up outside off, turn and bounce. Rohit comes forward to defend but gets an outside edge towards second slip/gully where de Silva holds on to it with both hands. 29/2
32.4 to RR Pant, castled! Tossed up on a length outside off, Pant was backing away to push it through covers but it spins back to beat the bat and crash into the stumps. 126/5
36.4 to RA Jadeja, extra bounce does him in! A length ball outside off, turn and bounce to hit Jadeja on the glove as he looks to cut it. The ball lobs towards the first slip fielder but it's dying on him. He stretches forward and takes it with both hands. 148/6
26.2 to GH Vihari, that's the one-two. After the straighter one comes the loopier, turning delivery, and it is pitched on the perfect length: can't go back to it, can't drive it. So Vihari defends, and the turn takes the edge. Dickwella takes this on the second grab. 76/3
53.5 to Mohammed Shami, oh another ball there for the pull, but there is an explosion off the pitch and the ball stands up on him. The top edge lobs up for an easy catch for gully. 229/9
59.1 to SS Iyer, oh he tries the first of those two hits, and is stumped. This is actually well bowled, slow in the air, getting the ball to dip short of his reach and then the pitch turns it a long way to leave him stranded. 252/10
27.3 to V Kohli, Kohli can't believe it. He is not moving. He is shocked. This is a nasty shooter. Short ball, he goes back looking to work this to leg, but it hardly leaves the ground and traps him dead in front. Has hit him inches above the ankle. He looked really good at cashing in on loose balls but his beloved home pitch has betrayed him here. Finally he has to drag himself off the field. 86/4
47.1 to R Ashwin, edged on the late cut. Doesn't turn as much as Ashwin expects, I think, and he gets a thick edge, which is neatly pouched by Dickwella. Parallel seam from de Silva, which gives the ball the best chance to not turn. 183/7

TOTAL35.5 Ov (RR: 3.04)109
Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Kusal Mendis, 2.1 ov), 2-14 (Lahiru Thirimanne, 4.1 ov), 3-14 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 5.1 ov), 4-28 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 11.5 ov), 5-50 (Charith Asalanka, 17.3 ov), 6-85 (Angelo Mathews, 28.1 ov), 7-95 (Lasith Embuldeniya, 32.2 ov), 8-100 (Suranga Lakmal, 33.6 ov), 9-100 (Niroshan Dickwella, 34.2 ov), 10-109 (Vishwa Fernando, 35.5 ov)
2.1 to BKG Mendis, Bumrah strikes! Fuller outside off, this one moves away from Mendis who drives at it without much footwork. Gets an outside edge and Iyer takes a nice, low catch at third slip. 2/1
4.1 to HDRL Thirimanne, and he picks up another. Iyer gobbles up one more. Was a length ball outside off, Thirimanne pokes at it, gets an outside edge. Iyer dives forward but it doesn't stick straightaway. Iyer though holds on to it between his arms and chest before shifting it to his hands as he tumbles. 14/2
28.1 to AD Mathews, and he takes Mathews with him. This is a huge wicket. He has guided a slower ball to second slip. This has been an excellent innings on a tough pitch, but he has made an error here. This is short of a length, and sits in front of him. Mathews just follows it and plays the one-day dab. Gets the edge, and Rohit catches it at second slip. 85/6
32.2 to L Embuldeniya, an early wicket for India. A short ball from around the wicket. Embuldeniya goes for the pull but ends up top-edging it behind the stumps. Pant takes a couple of steps to his right and settles under it. 95/7
34.2 to N Dickwella, first five-for for Bumrah in India. A short one, angling towards the batter. Dickwella arches back but fails to get his bat out of the line. The ball kissed the glove before settling into Pant's gloves. Bumrah looks in the umpire's direction and he raises the finger up. 100/9
33.6 to RAS Lakmal, Ashwin gets into the wickets column. It's a carrom ball. Fuller on middle and leg, Lakmal has no idea which way it's going to turn. He looks to hit it down the ground but it spins big to beat the bat and rattle the stumps. 100/8
35.5 to MVT Fernando, another carrom ball. This time shorter around off. Fernando lunges forward and pushes at it. He is playing for an offbreak but the ball spins like a legbreak to beat him by quiet some distance. Pant was quick to dislodge the bails. The third umpire finds the foot was in the air. 109/10
5.1 to FDM Karunaratne, and he strikes first ball. A length ball around off, nips back in to breach the gap between bat and pad as Karunaratne ends up defending down the original line, When everyone thought the Indian spinners will rule the roost, Bumrah and Shami have taken the first three wickets in no time. 14/3
11.5 to DM de Silva, jags back in from a length outside off. Catches de Silva on the crease, beats the inside edge and hits him on the pads. An appeal for lbw but given not out. Rohit ponders for a while before going for the review. It hit him on the back leg, just above the knee roll. There was no bat involved. The impact was in front of middle stump and the ball-tracking says it would have gone on to hit the top of middle and leg. 28/4
17.3 to KIC Asalanka, it was a matter of time. Asalanka has been edgy, looking to manufacture shots. He jumps down the wicket, Axar goes into the pads, Asalanka is not near the pitch of the ball, but he goes ahead with the hoick, skying it up for Ashwin to take it at mid-off. 50/5

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-42 (Mayank Agarwal, 10.4 ov), 2-98 (Rohit Sharma, 30.2 ov), 3-116 (Hanuma Vihari, 33.1 ov), 4-139 (Virat Kohli, 35.4 ov), 5-184 (Rishabh Pant, 41.6 ov), 6-247 (Ravindra Jadeja, 58.5 ov), 7-278 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 65.4 ov), 8-278 (Shreyas Iyer, 66.1 ov), 9-303 (Axar Patel, 68.5 ov)
10.4 to MA Agarwal, draws the edge and it's taken by gully. Agarwal makes the grave mistake of jabbing at this and it flew at a comfortable height. Was looking good but has missed another opportunity. He'll be disappointed as will be his home fans.. 42/1
66.1 to SS Iyer, drifts in, skids through to beat Iyer's push and he's been given out lbw. He reluctantly reviews that one. I'm afraid Iyer will have to go. No inside edge and all they needed to confirm if this was hitting the stumps. Ball tracking confirms this would've hit leg stump. Iyer walks off after a fine innings. Iyer played for turn but there was none this time as the ball comfortably beat the inside edge.. 278/8
68.5 to AR Patel, cleans him up with one that spins back in sharply. This one keps low and beats Axar's attempted push off the back foot. And with that, India have also declared. Sri Lanka will have about 35 minutes of batting to do. They're chasing a mammoth 447.. 303/9
58.5 to RA Jadeja, bowled 'im This one keeps coming in with the angle. Jadeja was looking to dab it square of the wicket but it hits him on the pad and goes on to rattle the stumps. 247/6
30.2 to RG Sharma, holes out to long-on. Down the track, but gets too close to the ball. It hits near the bottom of the bat. As soon as Rohit made the connection, he knew where it was heading. A simple catch for Mathews. 98/2
33.1 to GH Vihari, bowled 'im! Vihari is disappointed with himself. Fuller ball around off, he looks to sweep it hard but misses. The ball sneaks underneath the bat and hits the off stump. 116/3
35.4 to V Kohli, gets a grubber and Kohli has to go back. This angles into middle from around the wicket, the ball skids through and keeps low to strike Kohli on the pad as he looks to work it through midwicket. He has a chuckle, can't believe his luck as he walks back lbw for the second time in this Test.. 139/4
41.6 to RR Pant, they didn't get the lbw but they have him caught, and it's a very good catch by Jayawickrama. Pant steps out to swing this over deep midwicket but ends up getting a top edge as the ball doesn't spin much, loops in the air for a long time, Wickrama called for it, settled underneath it and took it safely.. 184/5
65.4 to R Ashwin, shapes to cut but there was no room for it, nicks behind as Dickwella takes an excellent catch. It's the skid off the surface and a hint of extra bounce that does the trick.. 278/7

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Lahiru Thirimanne, 0.3 ov), 2-97 (Kusal Mendis, 19.4 ov), 3-98 (Angelo Mathews, 20.4 ov), 4-105 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 27.5 ov), 5-160 (Niroshan Dickwella, 41.6 ov), 6-180 (Charith Asalanka, 49.5 ov), 7-204 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 56.5 ov), 8-206 (Lasith Embuldeniya, 57.3 ov), 9-208 (Suranga Lakmal, 58.2 ov), 10-208 (Vishwa Fernando, 59.3 ov)
0.3 to HDRL Thirimanne, struck on the pad and given! Thirimanne reviews immediately. The ball swung back in wickedly, Thiri had to scamper his way towards getting some bat on it. The bone of contention here is if it hit the pad first or the bat. Replays confirm it was pad first and Thiri is a dead duck. Nitin Menon's decision is upheld as Sri Lanka are jolted early.. 0/1
56.5 to FDM Karunaratne, got 'im! Full, fast and a difficult one to get past even for the well set skipper. Just a hint of movement off the seam after pitching, and Karunaratne looks for the drive through cover, but is beaten comprehensively. Bumrah pumps his fist, but it is the Sri Lankan captain who walks off to a healthy dose of applause from the Chinnaswamy crowd. 204/7
58.2 to RAS Lakmal, the dance won't last long! Handshakes from all of the Indians out in the middle, and applause from the crowd as Lakmal makes his way back. This was fast, right up there, and honing in on leg stump. Bumrah, in fact, was the first to sprint over and pat Lakmal on the back. What a champion player he has been for them, especially in their high points in Test cricket over the past three or four international seasons. 208/9
19.4 to BKG Mendis, lovely bowling. Beaten in the flight as Mendis jumps out of the crease. It dips on him and Mendis is nowhere near the pitch of the ball. So he has to go to plan B, which is to defend, well in front of his body. This is where there is a puff of dust, and the ball doesn't turn at all. Beaten on the outside edge, and Pant does the rest. Ashwin level with Dale Steyn on 439 wickets. 97/2
27.5 to DM de Silva, Ashwin goes past Dale Steyn! Classic bat-pad dismissal on a pitch of this kind. Ashwin stays round the wicket and flights this well above his eyeline. DDS looks to come forward to defend, but ends up defending with bat away from body. Takes take the inside edge, and cushions off the front pad. Vihari at short leg dives to his left, with both hands ahead of him, and completes the catch. 105/4
57.3 to L Embuldeniya, Ashwin gets this one to straighten, and it strikes Embuldeniya as he presses forward. Appeal for leg before, but not given, but India review. Does look adjacent, unless the height comes to the batter's rescue. Not, it is clipping the top of leg. Ashwin gets another one!. 206/8
59.3 to MVT Fernando, swipes across the line, and Shami at mid-off completes the catch! Tossed up nicely way outside off, and he takes the bait to go across the line, but ends up top-edging. Tucks his bat under his armpit immediately, knowing that it would take an ourtrageous error from the fielder to give him a reprieve. That isn't forthcoming, and India take the series 2-0. 208/10
20.4 to AD Mathews, through him. Not much you can do when a spinner is doing so much at high pace. One ball is turning, one is going on straight. This one goes straight on, beats the inside edge, flicks the back leg, and hits the stumps. 98/3
41.6 to N Dickwella, he has missed s straight one. Dickwella jumps out of the crease, Axar changes nothing, but he swings across the line of this length ball. It goes straight on to beat him. Axar is on the board. 160/5
49.5 to KIC Asalanka, and the inevitable happens. One turns and jumps, and takes the glove through to backward short leg. It is on a length, on middle and off, and his pace means Asalanka has no time to adjust. 180/6
