Indian captain Rohit Sharma was surprised that the Mohali Test ended within three days but praised his bowlers who took 16 wickets in total on the third day. India managed to bundle out Sri Lanka for 174 and 178 with the spin twins, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja taking 15 scalps among them. It was by no means a minefield to bat on but the Lankan batters succumbed to poor strokeplay. Ravindra Jadeja was well on course for his maiden double century but keeping the interests of the team ahead, India declared and Jadeja was stranded on 175*. Rohit said it was Jadeja’s suggestion as the Lankan batters were tiring out.
A round of applause 👏👏 for @imjadeja for his Man of the Match performance 🔝
