Kanpur, Day 4: India complete 100th Test win (IND-SRL: 1-0|3)

India clinched their biggest Test victory against Sri Lanka by comprehensively beating them by an innings and 144 runs. In the process, India became the sixth country to post 100 Test victories, joining Australia (332), England (310), West Indies (152), South Africa (120) and Pakistan (103). Resuming day four at 57/4, Sri Lanka were dismissed for 269 before tea to complete the sixth victory for India in nine Tests under Dhoni's captaincy - three were no results.Thilan Samaraweera remained unbeaten on a defiant 78 off 213 balls after sharing a 73-run partnership with Ajantha Mendis (27) to frustrate the Indians. Paceman Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, making his Test comeback, was named man of the match for his 5-75 in the first innings. The crushing win puts India 1-0 ahead in the series, with the third and final Test taking place in Mumbai next week.
India 642 (Gambhir 167, Dravid 144, Sehwag 131, Herath 5-121) beat Sri Lanka 229 (Sreesanth 5-75) and 269 (Samaraweera 78*) by an innings and 144 runs


Kanpur, Day 3: India on top as Sreesanth rocks Sri Lanka

Kerala pacer Shanthakumaran Sreesanth made a triumphant return to international cricket, with a devastating display of seam bowling to put India on the threshhold of a comprehensive victory in the second Test against Sri Lanka in Kanpur. Playing his first Test since April last year, Sreesanth claimed five first innings wickets as Sri Lanka were skittled for a meagre 229 in response to India's first innings total of 642. Sreesanth (5-75) joined Kapil Dev (5-110 at Chennai in 1982-83) as the second Indian to bag five wickets in an innings against Sri Lanka in India. Spinners Pragyan Ojha (2-37) and Harbhajan Singh (2-54) wiped off the tail to wrap up the Sri Lankan innings shortly after tea. Forced to follow on, Sri Lanka were 57 for four at stumps after Sreesanth provided the early breakthrough by removing attacking opener Tillakaratne Dilshan for 11. Part-time spinner Virender Sehwag trapped the other opener Tharanga Paranavitana leg before wicket before Mahela Jayawardene and Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara lost their wickets cheaply.
Sri Lanka 229 (Mahela 47, Sangakkara 44, Sreesanth 5-75) and 57/4 trail India 642 (Gambhir 167, Dravid 144, Sehwag 137, Herath 5-121) by 356 runs


Kanpur, Day 2: Sri Lanka chase mammoth total after Herath snares 5 wickets

Sri Lanka spinner Rangana Herath snared five wickets as he destroyed India's tail, after Rahul Dravid's 28th century took India to an unbeatable position. From 613/4, when Dravid was batting, India collapsed to 642 all out, losing their last six wickets for just 29 runs. However, it was India's seventh highest total in all Tests and second highest against Sri Lanka. Yuvraj Singh (67) and VVS Laxman (63) hit fluent fifties.Rahul Dravid, who reached his second consecutive ton, became Test cricket's fourth highest scorer, surpassing former Australian captain Allan Border. His innings was cut short at 144 runs after he had added 59 runs to his overnight score by a freak run out. Dravid now has 11,182 runs in 136 Tests at an average of 53.50.Sri Lankans lost the wicket of Dilshan, who was out for a first-ball duck, and put on 66 before played ended on day two.
Sri Lanka 66/1 (Sangakkara 30*, Paranavitana 30*) trail India 642 (Gambhir 167, Dravid 144, Sehwag 137, Herath 5-121) by 576 runs


Kanpur, Day 1: India's highest score in a day in test cricket as Sehwag and Gambhir hit centuries

Openers Gautam Gambhir (167) and Virender Sehwag (131) added 233 runs in 41.2 overs against Sri Lanka - their highest ever opening partnership - scoring close to six runs per over to help India reach its highest score (417/2) in a day in test cricket. India’s previous highest was 386/1 against South Africa in Chennai in March 2008.Sehwag's 131 included 122-ball knock included 18 fours and two sixes. He was dropped in the first over of Chanaka Welegedara. Gambhir scored his eighth Test century, seventh in nine Tests, four of them coming on the trot in successive Tests. He thus became the the third Indian batsman after Sunil Gavaskar and Rahul Dravid to score four consecutive Test centuries. His 215-ball knock included 15 fours.
At stumps, Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar were unbeaten on 85 and 20 runs respectively.
India 417 for 2 (Gambhir 167, Sehwag, 131, Dravid 85*) v Sri Lanka
