It was Virat Kohli's 100th Test match. It was Rohit Sharma's maiden Test as India captain. But one Ravindra Jadeja decided to make it the most memorable Test in his career. After his majestic 175 not out on Day 2, Jadeja took nine wickets on Sunday to steer India to an innings and 222 runs victory in the first Test of the two-match series.

    Ravindra Jadeja (Player of the Match)

    I would say this is my lucky ground. Whenever I come here I get positive vibes. To be honest I don't know about any stat. Feeling very good, happy to score runs and pick wickets for the team. Such performance obviously boosts your confidence as a player. I have not done anything differently, just played to my strengths and I give myself time to settle down.

    Rohit Sharma (IND)

    We ticked all the boxes we wanted to. To be honest I didn't think it is going to be that kind of a Test match that would get over in three days. Good signs for India cricket. The highlight of the game was Ravindra Jadeja. There was a question whether to declare or not, it was the team's decision, Jadeja's decision to put them in and shows how selfless he is.

    Dimuth Karunaratne (SL)

    We never thought the game would finish by day three. The batters need to pull their socks up and bat longer innings. If we had bowled better then we could have restricted them. As a batting unit, we have to score big. We did well for the first two sessions but could not execute when the ball got old and those are things we need to work on.

  • 06 Mar 2022 / 4:35 PM

    Ravi Ashwin Speaks

    He (Jadeja) has really come a long way in the last four-five years. His batting is improving match by math and he knows what he is doing. You can't leave (Mohammed) Shami and Jasprit (Bumrah) out of things either. They stuck to their guns, sustained pressure, bowled their hearts out and reversed the ball to give the follow-on.

  • 06 Mar 2022 / 4:11 PM

    India Win

    India win the first Test by an innings and 222 runs. Poor surrender by Sri Lanka. 16 wickets fell on the day in both innings.

    Dickwella 50

  • 06 Mar 2022 / 3:46 PM


    Virat Kohli's 100th Test match is all about Ravindra Jadeja. He first hits 175 not out in the first innings and now has taken nine wickets in the match so far. Jadeja needs just one wicket to become first in the world to take 10 wickets and score 150 runs in the same Test. He also can become the fifth player to score a 100 and pick a 10-wicket haul in a Test match

  • 06 Mar 2022 / 3:31 PM

    Jadeja Gets 4th

    Well, he's done it again. Around the stump and a healthy edge to break the 32-run stand. Lasith Embuldeniya, caught behind, goes for 2 off 42. Very good take behind the wicket by Rishabh Pant. Very low. 4/35 for Ravindra Jadeja in the innings. Vishwa Fernando is the new man. Sri Lanka trail by 247 runs. SL - 153/8 (f/o) (51)

  • 06 Mar 2022 / 3:17 PM

    Little Defiance

    A little defiant act from Niroshan Dickwella and Lasith Embuldeniya, adding 19 runs in 67 balls for the 8th wicket.  Sri Lanka still trail by 260 runs. SL - 140/7 (f/o) (48)

  • 06 Mar 2022 / 2:54 PM

    At stumps on Day 2, No. 3 Pathum Nissanka was unbeaten on 26, while Charith Asalanka was 1 not out. They have to deal with Jadeja, Ashwin and Jayant Yadav on Sunday in what will be a real challenging affair.

  • 06 Mar 2022 / 9:11 AM

    Ashwin Factor

    Just like Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin has proved his all-round skills once again.  Ashwin scored 61, his 12th Test half-century and his 130-run seventh-wicket partnership with Jadeja was absolutely critical on Saturday. Ashwin has taken two of the four Lankan wickets to fall so far.
