Commentary
  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Ravichandran Ashwin to Lahiru Gamage. Carrom length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, missed. There it is, Ashwin's 300th Test wicket finishes things in style. Gamage has no clue which way the ball is turning, the carrom delivery beats the outside edge to clip off stump. That equals India's biggest victory in Tests and puts them 1-0 up in the series.

    A second abject batting performance in the match from Sri Lanka as they are dismantled in less than 50 overs by a rampant India. That long stint in the field must have taken it's toll on the minds of the visiting batsmen, there were some pretty wretched shots from normally solid players. Only skipper Dinesh Chandimal offered any resistance, his aggressive 61 a beacon of hope for the tourists. The hosts were by far the better team right from the start of the match, with key contributions throughout their eleven. They will be full of confidence heading into the Third Test starting on Saturday 2nd.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Umesh Yadav to Dinesh Chandimal. Reverse Swing-In length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control to fine leg, by Ashwin. Helped into the hands of fine leg, Chandimal can't believe he's picked out the man. The reverse swing from Umesh drifts down the legside and Chandimal goes with it, intentionally taking the aerial route. He doesn't bother with trying to place it though and Ashwin barely has to move a muscle to gobble it up. India one wicket from a massive win.

Carrom length ball, down leg side on the front foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Saha, appeal made for Caught. Ashwin thinks there was a little tickle on that down the legside but after a review there was clearly nothing.

  • 43.4 - SIX! Ravichandran Ashwin to Suranga Lakmal. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Incredible shot, launched back over Ashwin's head for a mighty maximum. I think Lakmal enjoyed that, he has a big smile on his face.

  • 42.4 - FOUR! Umesh Yadav to Dinesh Chandimal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs. A slice of fortune for Chandimal to get going this afternoon, that inside edge almost cannoning into the sticks.

    Time for lunch in Nagpur with India on the verge of a crushing victory. A rampant bowling attack took seven wickets in that morning session, helped out by some curious Sri Lankan batting. The hosts will finish things off this afternoon, with Ravichandran Ashwin seeking his 300th Test victim to become the fastest ever to that milestone.

  • 40.5 - FOUR! Ishant Sharma to Dinesh Chandimal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Quality stroke to take the Sri Lankan captain to a second half century in the match. This knock might be in a losing cause but it will give him confidence in the next match.

  • 40.3 - FOUR! Ishant Sharma to Suranga Lakmal. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled past deep cover for 4 runs. Lakmal continues to swing with reckless abandon.

  • 40.2 - Ishant Sharma to Suranga Lakmal. Reverse Swing-Out length ball, off stump on the front foot working, leading edge back to bowler for no runs, dropped catch by Sharma. Put down in his follow-through, a wry smile from Ishant. It's never easy to take a return catch as a fast bowler but that was as easy as it gets.

  • 40.1 - Ishant Sharma to Suranga Lakmal. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, thick edge to backward point for no runs, fielded by Yadav.

  • 39.6 - FOUR! Ravichandran Ashwin to Dinesh Chandimal. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Launched out into the deep, Chandimal had to hit that against the spin as Ashwin went for the leggie.

  • 39.5 - Ravichandran Ashwin to Dinesh Chandimal. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Kohli.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Ravichandran Ashwin to Dilruwan Perera. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot working, hit pad. Ashwin strikes again, his 50th Test wicket of 2017. Dilruwan was looking to turn this with the spin but is beaten on the inside edge, and the umpire has no hesitation in raising the finger. Sri Lanka decide to review, they have no choice really, but ball tracking says it would've clipped leg stump. I wonder if India can finish this off before lunch.

  • 34.6 - Ravindra Jadeja to Dinesh Chandimal. Stock ball half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Sharma.

  • 33.5 - FOUR! Ravichandran Ashwin to Dinesh Chandimal. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Chandimal isn't deterred by the carnage around him, he continues to take the attack to India.

  • 33.4 - Ravichandran Ashwin to Dinesh Chandimal. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Kohli.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Ravichandran Ashwin to Dasun Shanaka. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Rahul. You suspected it might not be long before this happened. Shanaka was always looking like he was in the middle for a good time, not a long time. He clearly doesn't trust his defence against quality spin bowling so was intent on all-out attack. That can only last so long in Test cricket, Ashwin tossing it up and getting dip to elicit the false stroke.

  • 33.2 - Ravichandran Ashwin to Dinesh Chandimal. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot dropped, to short extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Ashwin.

  • 32.2 - FOUR! Ishant Sharma to Dinesh Chandimal. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. This is an amazing flurry, five boundaries in just eight deliveries.

  • 32.1 - FOUR! Ishant Sharma to Dinesh Chandimal. Reverse Swing-In length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs.

  • 31.6 - SIX! Ravichandran Ashwin to Dasun Shanaka. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. What an over for Sri Lanka, Shanaka racing on to a career best Test score.

  • 31.5 - Ravichandran Ashwin to Dasun Shanaka. Off break half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Kohli.

  • 31.4 - SIX! Ravichandran Ashwin to Dasun Shanaka. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Nails the slog sweep, backing himself to clear the man in the deep which he does so comfortably.

  • 31.1 - APPEAL! Ravichandran Ashwin to Dasun Shanaka. Off break back of a length, off stump on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Rahane, appeal made for L.B.W.

  • 30.6 - Ishant Sharma to Dasun Shanaka. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, Gloved to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Vijay.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Ishant Sharma to Niroshan Dickwella. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to slips, by Kohli. Another one bites the dust, Sri Lanka in absolute tatters now. This time you can't fault the batsman though, it is just a peach of a delivery from Ishant that would trouble most left-handers. He gets bounce and movement from around the stumps, Dickwella is squared up after being forced to play, and the edge flies to second slip. Kohli parries it up initially and then casually takes it one handed at the second attempt.

Oh dear, what a disaster for Sri Lanka. This is terrible batting, another batsman giving their wicket away with a loose shot. Mathews is better than this but there was just no fight from him today. The tourists are in danger of being embarrassed in Nagpur.

    That's a nice way for the visitors to go to drinks but it is the hosts who have had the best of the first hour. They require another seven wickets for victory after a scalp each for Jadeja and Umesh.

Spooned to backward point, what a tame end that is for Thirimanne. Umesh fires in a fast, wide delivery inviting the drive and the left-hander can't resist. He throws his hands at the ball with reckless abandon and immediately regrets his choice as he looks up to see Jadeja accept the catch. That very much looked like the shot of a man who has spent two days in the field, lethargic and pretty awful.

Snaffled at short leg, Jadeja strikes with his second ball of the day to remove the obdurate Karunaratne. The left-handed opener will feel pretty unlucky here, he got a good piece of the ball as he looked for some legside runs but clipped it straight into the midriff of the man under the lid.

Virat Kohli compiled a chanceless double century, increasing in tempo as the energy sapped from the tourists, in a ruthless display of hunger for runs. Rohit Sharma then joined the party, cashing in to become the fourth centurion of a remarkable innings for the hosts. Sri Lanka's misery was compounded late in the day as they lost a wicket cheaply, leaving them with a mountain to climb just to avoid defeat by an innings tomorrow. Miracles can happen though and you never know what is in store in the morning.

The first ball went away to beat the outside edge, this one nips back in to just clip the off bail. Perfect fast bowling to remove Samarawickrama for a duck and leave Sri Lanka reeling. This is what happens when you come out to bat with a tired brain and body from two days of toil.

Sweetly punched through cover, that's a century for Rohit Sharma. What a comeback to the Test side, he hasn't even played a first class game for more than a year. He's positively cruised to three figures and with that Kohli calls in the troops.

    That was brutal for Sri Lanka, two straight days in the heat of the field being put to the sword by India's batsmen. Vijay, Pujara, Kohli and Sharma were the fab four for the hosts, all notching contrasting centuries to give themselves a more than handy lead of 405 runs. You struggle to see how Sri Lanka will get close to that figure let alone make India bat again. The first target will be to make it through tonight unscathed but that is much easier said than done.

Sliced straight to point, Rahane misses out on a prime opportunity for runs. This sat up and was there to be cut, but Rahane leant back and tried to hit it hard, meaning he spooned it aerially. Karunaratne gobbled it up to give the tourists an early scalp this afternoon.

  • 126.5 - FOUR! Dasun Shanaka to Virat Kohli. Slower ball full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, past long on for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Chandimal.

    What a day for India, complete dominance for the entire 90 overs to put themselves in control of the match. Murali Vijay got things going, crunching the first ball this morning to the cover rope, and he never looked back from there. He completed his tenth Test century to mark his comeback to the international scene in the best possible fashion. Cheteshwar Pujara wasn't too far behind, typically obdurate at the crease to accumulate a hundred of his own. He remains unbeaten overnight with his captain alongside, meaning the sky is the limit for the hosts tomorrow. For Sri Lanka, this was a day to forget. Just the one wicket in the entire day and a pretty flat bowling display didn't deserve anything more. Perhaps their fortunes will change on Day Three.

    Time for tea after another wicketless session in Nagpur. India are now just 20 runs short of Sri Lanka's first innings total and will cruise well into the lead this evening. Murali Vijay notched up his tenth Test hundred to mark his return to the longest format in style, and Cheteshwar Pujara looks determined to join him on three figures later on today. Plenty of toil and grind for the bowlers, but no success so far today.

  • 64.4 - FOUR! Lahiru Gamage to Cheteshwar Pujara. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, Gloved past fine leg for 4 runs.

Frustration for the bowler, he managed to hit Pujara on the gloves but it ballooned to safety.

  • 60.4 - Dilruwan Perera to Murali Vijay. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Gamage. A scampered single takes Murali Vijay to a sublime tenth Test century. He's been in control right from the first ball this morning, which he duly dispatched to the fence to set the tone. The worrying thing for Sri Lanka is that he doesn't look satisfied yet.

  • 60.3 - Dilruwan Perera to Cheteshwar Pujara. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Samarawickrama.

Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella, appeal made for Caught. Finally a Sri Lankan bowler extracts a little help from the pitch, and it excites the captain so much that he wastes a review when there is clearly no edge.

  • 7.6 - Lahiru Gamage to Cheteshwar Pujara. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to cover for no runs, fielded by Samarawickrama.

    Eleven wickets have fallen on the opening day in Nagpur to leave the hosts India in command of the Second Test. Sri Lanka fought valiantly through opener Dimuth Karunaratne and captain Dinesh Chandimal but their half centuries weren't substantial enough to bring the visitors up to a par total. The Indian spinners were especially impressive today, with Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja taking seven wickets between them. A late wicket for Lahiru Gamage gave the tourists a boost, meaning early wickets tomorrow morning will bring them right back into the contest.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Lahiru Gamage to Lokesh Rahul. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, inside edge. Dragged on, that will lift the tourists late in the day. KL Rahul loves to feel bat on ball, but he was pushing well away from his body here with the ball just nipping a little bit. A thick inside edge cannons into the sticks to give Sri Lanka an opening late in the day.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Ravichandran Ashwin to Rangana Herath. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to slips, by Rahane. That is the end of that, a classic offspinner's dismissal as Ashwin angles the ball in before ripping it away. Herath is drawn into a tentative prod and Rahane gobbles it up at slip. That completes a superb bowling display by the hosts. Chandimal and Karunaratne scored fighting half centuries for Sri Lanka but there was nothing of real substance in a tame batting display, leaving them with a below par total.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Ishant Sharma to Suranga Lakmal. Seaming away length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Saha. Edged and gone, lovely bowling by Ishant. This just snakes away from the bat a touch, and that's enough for the ball to kiss the edge on the way through to the keeper. He really bent his back there to extract something from a placid surface.

  • 78.4 - FOUR! Ishant Sharma to Suranga Lakmal. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Nailed over mid wicket, this is quality lower order batting by Lakmal.

  • 72.2 - FOUR! Ravindra Jadeja to Suranga Lakmal. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot Slog, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs. Classic tail-end batting pays off for Lakmal, a filthy heave getting a cheeky inside edge down to fine leg.

  • 72.1 - Ravindra Jadeja to Suranga Lakmal. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Ashwin.

  • 71.6 - Ravichandran Ashwin to Rangana Herath. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to short leg for no runs, fielded by Rahul.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Ravichandran Ashwin to Dinesh Chandimal. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, hit pad. Another one bites the dust, Chandimal now has to trudge off. He was looking to take a few risks seen as there isn't much batting left in the shed but he was too reckless here. He switches his stance and looks to reverse-swipe Ashwin but the offspinner beats him in the flight. The umpire isn't too interested in the initial appeal but another superbly used review works in India's favour.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Ravindra Jadeja to Dilruwan Perera. Stock length ball, off stump on the back foot working, hit pad. Trapped on the back foot, that is absolutely stone dead. No chance a review will save Dilruwan this time but he tries one anyway. This is a classic Jadeja dismissal, spearing the ball in and catching the batsman playing back when he should be forward. The wily left-arm spinner has three wickets to his name now.

  • 70.3 - Ravindra Jadeja to Dinesh Chandimal. Stock ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Rahul.

  • 68.4 - SIX! Ravindra Jadeja to Dilruwan Perera. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Wack, what a statement that is from Dilruwan. Nimble footwork and an almighty swing of the blade.

  • 68.3 - Ravindra Jadeja to Dilruwan Perera. Stock ball half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Ashwin.

  • 68.2 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Ravindra Jadeja to Dilruwan Perera. Stock length ball, off stump on the back foot Late Cut, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Rahane, appeal made for L.B.W. The finger has gone up but an instant review from the batsman. Late cutting Jadeja is always risky business but Dilruwan has just managed to get bat on it, saving him. Excellent review.

  • 67.6 - Ravichandran Ashwin to Dinesh Chandimal. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Kohli.

  • 67.5 - Ravichandran Ashwin to Dilruwan Perera. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, to short extra cover for 1 run, shy attempt by Saha.

  • 67.4 - Ravichandran Ashwin to Dilruwan Perera. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot working, to short leg for no runs, dropped catch by Pujara. Was that a chance? It was a sharp one to short leg, the ball coming off the face of the bat and popping straight out of Pujara's grasp. Would've been a stunner.

  • 67.3 - Ravichandran Ashwin to Dilruwan Perera. Off break length ball, middle stump on the back foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • 67.2 - Ravichandran Ashwin to Dilruwan Perera. Off break back of a length, to leg on the back foot working, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Pujara.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Ravichandran Ashwin to Dasun Shanaka. Arm length ball, to leg no foot movement defending, missed. What a jaffa, Ashwin is far too good for Shanaka on this occasion. He undercuts this delivery, causing it to go straight on past the outside edge and crash into the top of off stump, a lethal delivery from around the wicket.

  • 65.1 - Ravichandran Ashwin to Dinesh Chandimal. Off break length ball, middle stump down the track driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Vijay.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Ravindra Jadeja to Niroshan Dickwella. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track flick, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Sharma. Oh dear, this is a pretty tame end for such a talented batsman. Dickwella has his head in his hands as soon as he plays the stroke, he instantly realises the mistake he's made and is gutted with it. His attacking nature takes over and he loses his shape in this stroke, so a thick leading edge loops into the hands of mid off. A gift for India.

  • 60.5 - Ravindra Jadeja to Dinesh Chandimal. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to cover for 1 run, fielded by Ashwin. Fifty for Chandimal, an excellent knock in a pressure situation.

    It's time for tea in Nagpur after another interesting session leaves things nicely balanced. There's no doubt that India were on top when Ishant trapped Karunaratne LBW for 51, but a little flurry of boundaries has kept this innings ticking.

Up goes the dreaded digit, Sri Lanka lose a big wicket just as things were starting to look comfortable. Ishant has plugged away on a nagging line and length, and now he gets his rewards.

    An attritional session comes to an end in Nagpur on Day One of the Second Test. After an early strike by Ishant Sharma, it seemed as though Sri Lanka had weathered the early storm.

Karunaratne continues to live a charmed life in Nagpur, India let him off the hook again. Saha whips the bails off in a flash and is convinced he has his man, but the third umpire spots that Jadeja has overstepped. It would've been out otherwise, sloppy cricket.
