Jaddu presents a dream win for India

Kochi: India bulldozed Sri Lanka by an innings and 222 runs in the first test match at Mohali today.

India played splendidly by setting up a huge total of 574 for eight powered by an unbeaten 175 by Ravindra Jadeja. Rishabh Pant made 96, R Ashwin 61 and H Vihari 58.

In reply Sri Lanka shivered before India attack and was bundled out for 175 in the first innings. Nissanka alone showed some resistance and made an unbeaten 61.

Jadeja bowled brilliantly and took 5 for 41.

Continuing their second innings, the Islanders meekly surrendered and made just 178 even as Dickewella made an unbeaten 51. Jadeja remained consistent to claim 4 for 46 and Ashwin 4 for 41.

Jadeja joined the five member club by making more than 150 runs.

Ashwin surpassed Kapil Dev’s tally of 434 wickets when he sent Pathum Nissanka back to pavilion in the second innings.

Ashwin is much away from the figure of 619 wickets set by Anil Kumble who is leading the table.
