India won 2nd test by 278 runs

Telangana99.com, Srilanka: India registered first test victory under the captaincy of Virat Kohli. Srilanka started with their over night score 72/2, were rocked early once again, losing Kaushal Silva and Kumar Sangakkara – who played his last innings for Sri Lanka. As Day 5 dawned, their hopes of at least saving the match lay firmly with skipper, Angelo Mathews. Those hopes were dashed first ball though, Umesh and Rahul combining to send the Sri Lankan skipper back to the hut. It was a one-way procession since then with Ravi Ashwin running through the middle and late order. Even a spell of rain, with India just a wicket away from victory, couldn’t stop them from completing the formalities. The hosts were finally bundled out for 134, losing by 278 runs. The series has been squared 1-1 .
