In the second Test, after winning the toss Sri Lanka chose to bat first, but the Islanders didn’t quite have a good outing as the Indian bowlers, just four of them this time chipped away with regular wickets.
While Ishant Sharma was the first one to pick up a wicket for India, both the spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja got into the act soon and moved into the defence of the visitors.
Wicket-keeper Niroshan Dickwella came out to bat after Dimuth Karunaratne was sent back by Ishant in the 51st over of the match.
Dickwella added 24 runs from 30 balls but eventually lost patience and jumped down the track on Jadeja’s delivery. He didn’t get to the pitch of the ball and while he wanted to hit it on the on-side the ball went high up on the off-side not further than mid-off where Ishant accepted a simple catch.
India captain Virat Kohli was seen performing the ‘Bhangra’ as he moved towards his teammates to celebrate the dismissal of the left-handed batsman.
