India too have lost a key spinner in Jadeja... currently the No. Test bowler and all rounder...

Good opportunity for Kuldeep Yadav, though considering the nature of the wicket India may be tempted to go with Bhuvi... though now with Hardik Pandya they already have a seam bowling all-rounder... so Bhuvi may be one seamer too many.

India throw away a tremendous start... otherwise another 600+ score was possible...

In any case they should be able to reach 400+ That should be enough to put Lanka under some pressure when they bat.

The ground for the 3rd Test is also of proper Test dimensions with 75+ yard boundaries...and the outfield is not billiard table fast... so hitting 4s and 6s is not easy.. and so 400+ will be a defendable score...

India win by an innings and a few. Very easy win.
