India sealed their eighth series win in a row after they beat Sri Lanka by an innings and 53 runs in the second Test in Colombo by bowling out the hosts for 386 in the second innings with Ravindra Jadeja picking up five wickets.


India took a 2-0 unassailable lead in the three-match series by winning the second Test in Colombo by an innings and 53 runs on Sunday. Sri Lanka were following on and resumed the day on 209 for 2 and 230 runs behind India. Dimuth Karunaratne scored a splendid hundred but with the SSC pitch crumbling, Indian spinners were always threatening. Jadeja picked up five wickets in the innings, including that of Karunaratne, as India bowled out Sri Lanka for 386 runs.

This was one another top performance from Kohli and his men. Sri Lanka did make a comeback in the second innings but India had batted them out with 622 runs in the first. Series sealed!
