The Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru has been a happy hunting ground for the Indian cricket team. Having routed Sri Lanka by an innings and 222 runs in the first Test at Mohali, India once again started as favourites on Saturday. But the story was different. Opting to bat first, India never got off to a flying start. The hosts lost Mayank Agarwal to a run out before spin bamboozled them as Rohit Sharma, Hanuma Vihari and Virat Kohli, all fell before tea. With Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja also following suit, the responsibility came under Shreyas Iyer's shoulders. The right-hander mixed defence and attack to perfection as his 92 helped India cross 250-run mark on a challenging track. In reply, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah were all over the Sri Lankans in the final session with their top three out for single digits. Angelo Mathews provided some resistance with his 43 but was undone by a Bumrah delivery at the end of the day. In total, 338 runs were scored and 16 wickets fell in the day. Get highlights of IND vs SL.

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 8:57 PM

    Mathews Stand Tall

    Despite half of his side back in the dressing room, Angelo Mathews once again is putting the Sri Lankan resistance here. The senior pro has so far played close to 80 balls for his 41. SL 81/5 (26.5)  

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 8:26 PM

    Ash Joins Party

    Ravichandran Ashwin joins the party. Charith Asalanka hits straight at the hands of Axar Patel. SL 50/5 (17.3)

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 8:18 PM

    Pacers Rule

    If Sri Lankan spinners dominated the first two sessions, the Indian pacers are doing the job for the hosts under lights. Charith Asalanka and Angelo Mathews are in the crease. SL 43/4 (15)

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 8:05 PM

    Terrific Review

    Another one bites the dust. Mohammed Shami hits Dhananjaya de Silva straight on pads but the umpire seems not convinced. India takes a review and that's out. SL 28/4 (12)

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 7:35 PM

    SL On Mat

    Sri Lanka are on the mat against India on Day 1. After losing Kusal Mendis early, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami added two more to put India on top. Dimuth Karunatne and Lahiru Thirimmane are the two back in the hut. SL 14/3 (5.1)

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 7:19 PM

    Bumrah Strikes

    India couldn't have asked for a better start as Jasprit Bumrah dismisses Kusal Mendis for two to give the hosts an early breakthrough. SL 2/1 (2.1)

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 7:16 PM

    Ashwin In Attack

    With spinners getting more success on this track, Rohit Sharma throws the ball to Ravichandran Ashwin after an opening Jasprit Bumrah over. Sri Lankan spinners took eight out of 10 Indian wickets on the day. SL 2/0 (2)

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 7:08 PM

    SL Start

    Kusan Mendis has come out in the middle in place of Lahiru Thirimanne along with Dimuth Karunaratne. Jasprit Bumrah will open the attack for India. 

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 6:30 PM

    Iyer Misses Ton

    That's the end of extraordinary innings. Shreyas Iyer is the final wicket to fall, stumped off Praveen Jayawickrama for 92. India finish at 252 all out.   

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 6:21 PM


    Shreyas Iyer hits straight above the bowler's head but didn't get the required elevation only for a running Kusal Mendis to drop a tough chance. IND 243/9 (57.3)

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 6:09 PM

    Iyer Needs Support

    Can Shreyas Iyer reach his second Test hundred from here? Well, for that he needs the complete support of Jasprit Bumrah at the other end. IND 229/9 (54)  

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 6:06 PM

    Shami Departs

    India lose another wicket. Mohammed Shami top edges a Praveen Jayawickrama for 5. IND 228/9 (53.5)

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 5:51 PM

    Iyer Leads The Way

    The Indian batters should take a leaf out of Shreyas Iyer's books on how to bat on turning pitches like this. The right-hander is showing a perfect mix of defence and attack. Meanwhile, Axar Patel chops on his stumps. IND 215/8 (50).  

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 5:43 PM


    Shreyas Iyer s dealing in sixes. The right-hander whacks Dhananjaya de Silva twice over the boundary to bring up his fifty. IND 210/7      

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 5:37 PM

    Ashwin Goes Back

    Wicket! India lose their seventh. Ravichandran Ashwin plays late trying to make a cut but in the end edges to Niroshan Dickwella for 13. Another partnership goes up in smoke. IND 183/7 (47.1) 

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 5:10 PM

    India Need Partnership

    After a dominating win in Mohali last week, India's performance today has been utterly disappointing. India badly need partnerships right now. Both Shreyas Iyer and Ravi Ashwin need to stick to the wicket. IND 163/6 (42)  

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 5:00 PM

    Jadeja Draws Blank

    India's slide continues the hosts lose their sixth wicket. Mohali hero Ravindra Jadeja is the last man to go for 4. The left-hander tries to cut a Lasith Embuldeniya delivery, gets the edge that straight goes Lahiru Thrimanne. ND 149/6 (36.4)

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 4:37 PM

    More Misery

    More misery for India. Rishabh Pant is clean bowled by a Lasith Embuldeniya delivery. Ravindra Jadeja joins Shreyas Iyer in the middle. IND 126/5 (32.4).    

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 4:01 PM

    Massive Wicket

    Massive Wicket! Virat Kohli became the fourth Indian batter to be dismissed in the first session of this Test match. The ball from Dhananjaya de Silva keeps low and Virat Kohli can't do anything. He stares at the pitch blank before making his way out. Kohli departs for 23. IND 86/4 (27.3)

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 3:39 PM

    Vihari Departs

    Praveen Jayawickrama gets Hanuma Vihari, caught behind for 31. The left-armer flights the ball, Vihari edges and Nisoshan Dickwella does a juggling act behind the stumps. Rishabh Pant comes in the middle. IND 76/3 (26.2)  

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 3:24 PM

    Treat To Eyes

    Terrific Placement! Virat Kohli opens his front foot a bit to dispatch Lasith Embuldeniya with his trademark cover drive for a four. IND 59/2 (18)

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 3:07 PM

    SL Take 1st Hour

    Sri Lanka have been pretty happy with how they have performed so far in the first hour of this Test match. They needed early wickets and they have got both Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma. But it is time for Virat Kohli and Hanuma Vihari to lay the foundation. IND 37/2 

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 2:54 PM

    Rohit Departs

    Dimuth Karunaratne has brought spin into the attack soon and it worked. The turn and bounce from Lasith Embuldeniya catch Rohit Sharma off guard and he edges to Dhananjaya de Silva. Virat Kohli comes in the middle. IND 29/2. 

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 2:34 PM

    First Six

    SMACKED! Viswa Fernando bowls short and Rohit Sharma was in the perfect position to send the pink leather behind the ropes. First six of the match. IND 23/1 (6)

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 2:26 PM


    The last time India lost their opening wicket via run out in a Test match was against England at Eden Gardens in Kolkata in 2012. Virender Sehwag was the unlucky player. 

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 2:13 PM

    Total Drama

    Worst possible start for India. Mayank is caught plumb in front but umpire Anil Chaudhary isn't convinced. Seeing the rolling towards cover, Mayank tries to take a single but Rohit Sharma sends him back and by the time he reaches back, Niroshan Dickwella has disturbed the stumps. Hanuma Vihari comes at No.3. IND 10/1 (1.4)

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 2:02 PM

    First Over

    Mayank Agarwal will take the strike for India. Rohit Sharma is at the other end. For Sri Lanka, Suranga Lakmal has the ball. 

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 1:40 PM

    Playing XIs

    One change for India. Axar Patel in for Jayant Yadav. Two changes for Sri Lanka. Kusal Mendis and Praveen Jayawickrama in Pathum Nissanka and Lahiru Kumara.

    India: Mayank Agarwal, Rohit Sharma (c), Hanuma Vihari, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah.

    Sri Lanka: Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Embuldeniya, Vishwa Fernando, Praveen Jayawickrama.

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 1:32 PM


    Rohit Sharma wins the toss and India will bat first against Sri Lanka. 

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 1:18 PM

    Virat At Home

    Virat Kohli will get another chance to score his 71st international century at his IPL 'home' ground, Chinnaswamy Stadium. He has not scored a century in his last 71 innings, including T20s. 

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 1:04 PM

    Farewell, Lakmal

    This will be Sri Lankan pacer Suranga Lakmal's final international match. He has taken 13 wickets in three pink-ball Tests Sri Lanka have played so far. Will it be a happy ending for Lakmal?

    In between, Jasprit Bumrah on pick-ball...

  • 12 Mar 2022 / 12:55 PM

    Axar In Focus

    A fit-again Axar Patel is back in the Indian squad. He is likely to replace Jayant Yadav in the playing XI. In India's last pink-ball Test against England in Ahmedabad in 2021, Axar Patel took 11 wickets for 70 to emerge player of the match.
