With 175 runs and nine wickets across two innings, Ravindra Jadeja was the hero for the home team. Sri Lanka scored just 174 runs while chasing the total. In the third innings, the visitors were asked to bat again but failed to impress and scored only 178 runs. It will take Sri Lanka a superb batting performance in the second Test to level the series and avoid a whitewash.
