India showed good fight on the final day of the 2nd test against Sri Lanka to level up the test series 1-1 after a convincing 278 runs at Colombo on Monday.
Sri Lanka started the day on 72/2, staring down the barrel of defeat, needing to show plenty of fight if they were to bat out the entire day, as the target of 413 set by India was simply not an option as their ace batsman Kumar Sangakkara was dismissed on 3th day. Starting the day off for Sri Lanka was Karunaratne on 25* and Captain Angele Mathews on 23*. It took only three overs for India to pick up their first wicket when Angelo Mathews was caught off the bowling of Yadav with his score on 23. Rahul did an excellent job behind the stumps as stand-in wicket-keeper after the injury to Saha. Chandimal was the next man dismissed when he was comprehensively outdone by Mishra, to be bowled with his score on 15.
The two early wicket broke the back of the Sri Lankan batting line-up as wicket started to fall like a prospection. With the wicket offering plenty of spin on the final day it was Mishra who got stuck in well, as he was simply unplayable to for Sri Lanka lower order. Rain threatened to take the victory away from India as it started to bucket down with the score on 130/9. An early lunch was taken, with Indian needing just the single wicket to secure the win.
Play finally did resume, and it was once again Mishra that picked up the final wicket when trapping CHameera lbw to end with 3/29. Ashwin had to be commended for his effort, opening the bowling and ending with 5/42, giving him a total of 7 wicket in the match. Sri Lanak were eventually bowled out for a mere 134 runs after just 43 overs.
