Cheteshwar Pujara breaks Sachin's record

Subsequently, Tharanga's opening partner Dimuth Karunaratne (25) had a few snorters as he struck two boundaries and held his end well for the most part before offering an outside edge to Ashwin for his second wicket.

Malinda Pushpakumara was sent up the order at No.4 and he stayed at the crease along with Karunaratne till the end of day 3. Sri Lanka's lion-hearted second-innings effort was cut short for 386, giving India a win by an innings and 53 runs as they went on to register their second series win over Sri Lanka in two years.

The Indian spinners had done brilliantly in the first Test and had done equally well to restrict Sri Lanka to just 183 in the first innings of the second Test. While Ravichandran Ashwin claimed Pushpakumara's wicket (16), Jadeja dismissed Chandimal for 2.

It was a first victory by an innings or more for India in Sri Lanka and, following their biggest victory by runs in Galle last week, ensured an eighth straight series triumph under Virat Kohli.

Sri Lanka were miserable with the bat in the first innings.

A number of publications even quoted Pulmonologist Dr Jalil Parkar stating, "His kidney functions have not improved". Fans immediately took to social networking sites to wish the legendary actor a speedy recovery.

Pandya got a second wicket by dismissing Niroshan Dickwella, thus ending Sri Lanka's hopes of saving the match.

Sri Lanka is still 230 runs behind India in the second innings.

The skipper also said that it was important for the side to enjoy the tough situations after taking an unassailable 2-0 lead over the hosts and clinching the three-Test series.

In the morning session India started day two on 344 for three and lost overnight centurions Pujara and Rahane but stretched its first innings score to 442 for five by lunch.

Jadeja picked up his ninth 5-wicket haul and won the man of the match award.

For a typical household on dual fuel, that means that the average annual bill will increase by 7.3 per cent or £76. He says there's not been a rise for almost 4 years.

The right-handed duo of Ashwin and Rahane continued to frustrate the Sri Lankans, stealing the odd boundaries and rotating the strike at a good rate to raise their 50-run stand in no time.

Sri Lanka is still trailing India by 572 runs and will need to score at least 372 runs to avoid following on. "I mean we were actually watching in awe yesterday, the sweeping was outstanding and we congratulated both the batters because it was proper Test cricket batting and high-quality temperament from both [Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis] and as well". R Ashwin spun his magic on a spin friendly wicket, spearheading the Indian bowling with a five-wicket haul.

The Saurashtra right-hander who had by now added 217 runs with Rahane, was hit on his thighs by a back of a length delivery from Karunaratne, resulting in loud appeals from the hosts. Mendis followed soon after, caught off Umesh Yadav by Kohli after the captain had grassed a previous chance.

Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
