Experts react as India inflict innings defeat on Sri Lanka in Nagpur Test

While the Kolkata Test provided a few positives, it did not pan out the same way for Sri Lanka in the second Test in Nagpur. India hammered the visitors by an innings and 239 runs at Jamtha and took an unassailable 1-0 lead in the series.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, after going wicketless in the first Test, picked up 13 wickets in the Test, Ishant Sharma, who was picked in the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, produced an impressive spell with the new ball in the final session of Day 3 and finished with five wickets in the game.
