Indian skipper Virat Kohli kept rotating his bowlers at the Sinhalese Sports Club Ground to keep the batsmen on their toes, and the strategy paid off. India has dominated much of the series against Sri Lanka, leaving the Asian team to think what can be done next. India's win was based on collective team effort and they dissected Lanka very methodically.

The big moment of the session came in the 66th over when K L Rahul dropped Karunaratne (then on 95) at short leg off Jadeja, which didn't prove costly in the long run.

Batting first, India declared its first innings on 622 for nine and dismissed Sri Lanka for 183 and enforced the follow-on, commanding a 439-run lead. The nucleus of team has remained the same over the past two years and India's next test will come in overseas conditions and knowing Kohli he will be desperate to put the results of past behind.

Sri Lanka resumed day four on 209 for two and looked determined to make India bat again. Credit goes to them: "they batted brilliantly in the first innings and put us under huge pressure", said Chandimal. The prospect of a whitewash does excite Kohli but he emphasizes on the culture of winning. We tried to play straight but we couldn't score well.

Jadeja was found guilty of breaching article 2.2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Player and Player Support Personnel which relates to throwing a ball (or any other item of cricket equipment such as a water bottle) at or near a player, player support personnel, umpire, match referee or any other third person in an inappropriate or risky manner, the ICC said.

"If we can believe enough in our abilities, we are not really bothered about where we are playing".

"However it may be, on whatever pitch or in whatever conditions, we are creating a habit of winning". Remember Lord's, remember Dharamsala against Australia, those are very important innings, the 90 against England in Mohali.

According to the ICC release, on the third day of the Colombo Test match against Sri Lanka on Saturday, Jadeja was found guilty of violating Article 2.2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for the players and the support staff, which is risky or improperly during the global match. "I would say he's a very valuable cricketer for us", he concluded. The on-field umpires deemed the throwing "in a unsafe manner" as it narrowly missed Dimuth Karunaratne, the Sri Lankan batsman. "They (India) are the no. 1 team", he signed off.

"All of us have, but Pujara's game has gone to another level. And to be able to have that hunger and passion day in day out, working hard on his game, coming out and having those consistent performances takes a lot of mental strength", said Kohli. If you see last season, continuing now, he's got about 1500 runs which is outstanding.
