    OUT! Caught. Ravindra Jadeja to Lahiru Kumara. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Shami. It is all over. Lahiru Kumara tries to send the ball into orbit, but gets a huge leading edge that falls into the hands of mid off.

    A huge win for India to start the series. They dominated every day, and fully deserved their win. Shikhar Dhawan and Cheteshwar Pujara set up the game for them with big hundreds in the first innings. Their bowlers all contributed in the wickets columns as well. The Indian skipper even had time to bag a century for himself this morning, and it all caps off a perfect Test for the visitors.

    Injuries have not helped the hosts, but they were thoroughly outplayed, and will have to improve if they are to compete in the next two games.

    OUT! Caught. Ravichandran Ashwin to Nuwan Pradeep. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, Gloved to leg gully, by Kohli. Pradeep can only last two balls, and suddenly the end of this match is in sight. Sharp spin from outside off stump, Nuwan prods forward tentatively, and the ball pops up off the glove to leg slip. Kohli takes the simple chance diving forward. Perhaps only one wicket needed for victory now.

    OUT! Bowled. Ravichandran Ashwin to Dimuth Karunaratne. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot sweeping, inside edge. Oh Dimuth what have you done? His eyes light up as Ashwin floats one up high. He was thinking of a boundary to get to the century, but gets a thin inside edge back onto his stumps. An ugly heave against the spin, and across the line. Too full to play the sweep as well. Poor shot selection, and it ends his stay at the crease. A real shame, cause he deserved a hundred.

    APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Ravindra Jadeja to Dilruwan Perera. Stock ball yorker, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Perera is late to jam the bat down on this yorker, and the ball hits him straight on the boot. Big appeal for leg before, but given not out. India challenge the call, but he was struck outside the line of off stump.
